The American Idol performance in support of legislation to allow psychologists to prescribe certain medications is HERE.
Greene County Sheriff Jack Merritt also spoke at the rally in support of the legislation. Merritt said it would help with suicide prevention in the county jail.
"What I see as a very important impact of this legislation, there's not anyway that I could ever afford to hire a psychologist, a full-time psychologist to be in my jail," Merritt said.
Merritt said that you'd be surprised how many inmates admit to contemplating suicide when entering the jail. "We can immediately, by having a psychologist on staff, have attention to that to those individuals," Merritt said.
His comments are included in the YouTube video as well.
