|Mark Speaks of the peril ahead, at a mental health summit, April 29th|
By David Van Risseghem-
“Society cannot ignore this problem,
and if it does so, it does so at its peril.”
Those were words Mark Costello declared from the rotunda of the Oklahoma State Capitol. His words became reality this week. His own peril was something he spoke little about. He did not want to add to the stress his son never really got relief from.
I was with Mark and a statewide group of mental health advocates on April 29th. We were coming together to draw attention to the severe problem that exists in Oklahoma and is made worse by poor leadership at the state level.

But the Oklahoman came and had their video camera rolling, not knowing just how profound Mark Costello’s 2 minutes would be.
