Dallas DA Susan Hawk has relapse, ‘continues to battle’ depression
Dallas County District Attorney Susan Hawk has relapsed in her ongoing struggle with severe depression.
Her office released a vague statement Friday afternoon acknowledging that Hawk’s public battle with mental illness is ongoing.
The DA “continues to battle this disorder, as relapse is common,” the statement read. “Currently, she is taking the necessary steps so that she can continue to serve the community. She is being proactive with her mental health plan and is determined to stay whole and healthy to insure that Dallas County is safe and thriving.”
Employees received the same message in an email around lunchtime.
