Mental health rally

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The statehouse was flooded Tuesday with supporters for mental health services.

The group is demanding more state funding.

Advocates say if services were cut more than 290,000 people who depend on the state's mental health system will suffer.

They say mental health services are a less expensive alternative to crisis care and hospitalization.
