Drive through downtown or Midtown any day of the week, and it’s immediately apparent that Houstonians with mental-health issues aren’t getting the services they need. As such, we’re happy to hear that the city is getting a new psychiatric hospital, UTHealth Continuum of Care Campus for Behavioral Health, and we’re inviting Stephen Glazier, who’ll lead the facility, to our party, along with a few other folks who’ve piqued our interest: Sarah Lefleur, MM.Lefleur CEO, who recently opened one of her (comfortable!) women’s-workwear showrooms here in town, at the Decorative Center of Houston; Bryan Washington, the local writer with a buzzy book of Houston-based short stories out this month, who will be reading at Brazos Bookstore (Mar. 19); Sarah Beth Wilson, Art League Houston’s new director/lead curator, who did a bang-up job at Beaumont’s Art Museum of Southeast Texas before being hired away; Ric Campo, Camden Property Trust CEO and new chairman of the Port of Houston; and, finally, Puddles Pity Party, the melancholy, golden-voiced singer coming through town this month for a show at Stafford Centre (Mar. 18), who appears to need a little cheering up. We’ve got you, Puddles.
