DALLAS (AP) — Dallas County District Attorney Susan Hawk has returned to work after spending nearly two months at an Arizona clinic for treatment of mental illness.
Hawk was at her office Thursday and released a statement saying she’s been working with mental health professionals to ensure that she’s healthy. Hawk, who’s battled depression, says doctors have decided she was physically ready to return to her job.
It was the third time that Hawk sought inpatient treatment for mental illness since the Republican took office in January 2015.
She checked herself into The Menninger Clinic in Houston on May 20, where she spent about two months last year. She was released in mid-June, then announced she was seeking more inpatient therapy at Sierra Tucson.
