Paton of Rehinge has officially endorsed Governor John Kasich for President. Governor Kasich also informed Rehinge that he would look into supporting federal bill HR1854, the Comprehensive Justice and Mental Health Act; as well as contact Paul Ryan to ask for his support to present HR1854 to the House. Here is an article with fair journalism on John Kasich’s record for mental health issues.

In the first Republican presidential debate in Cleveland, he took the issue head on as he defended expansion of Medicaid in Ohio as important for helping people living “in the shadows.”

“I had an opportunity to bring resources back to Ohio. To do what? To treat the mentally ill,” Kasich told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, one of the moderators.

Paton was also able to speak with two radio hosts yesterday about his support for presidential nominee candidate, John Kasich, and his positive policies on mental health. First is the national radio show by Hugh Hewitt, who also recently moderated a GOP presidential national debate.

Listen to the Podcast on the Another Voice Website

Paton Blough of Rehinge was featured on Another Voice with Jason and Eric, an online radio podcast focused in the Greenville area of South Carolina. The whole show for this podcast is related to mental health in the state and how things can be reformed.

Visit the Another Voice Website

Today we focused on mental health reform in South Carolina.  We looked at what the Legislature is doing and what they should be doing to aid those struggling with mental illness.  But true mental health reform can only occur when we, as society, change our view of those with mental illness, which is what we discussed in the second half of the show.

We were joined today by Paton Blough of redhype-test.com/rehinge, who added his personal experiences and passionate advocacy to our discussion, providing much needed perspective.

Full Broadcast: Russ Cassell, W.O.R.D., News Radio


Paton calls into the show to challenge Russ on why mental health is important. Russ Cassell goes on to claim that being mentally ill has no impact on whether someone commits murder or not. Paton explains that those who deal with mental illness often feel threatened, and need help over being neglected. Paton goes on to explain that mental illness is a medical issue and needs to be treated as such. Russ responds that evil is evil, regardless of mental illness. Paton agrees that mental illness cannot be a crutch for criminals, but that those with mental illness that are convicted of crimes need to be treated by the law in a different manner, which is why the mental health court exists. Paton says that he believes that recovery is possible for everyone with mental illness.

Paton talks to Congressman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina. Paton asks Trey Congressman Gowdy if he supports a bill by Senator Lindsey Graham to help plug loopholes in firearm background checks. Congressman Trey responds that he does supports the bill to prevent the criminally mentally ill from accessing guns. Congressman Gowdy stresses the point to not link those with mental illness to criminals who also deal with mental illness–being mentally ill does not automatically mean that you should not have access to firearms. Senator Graham and Congressman Gowdy support the idea of right restoration program for former criminals who have mental illness to regain their rights to purchase firearms.
