Cathy Costello Biography

Following a family tragedy in which her schizophrenic son experienced a psychotic break and killed her husband, Cathy Costello has worked on educating and advocating for mental health awareness and reform in order to prevent families from suffering as hers did.

After testifying twice before a senate hearing committee, Costello was instrumental in the unanimous passing of the Labor Commissioner Mark Costello Act, which provides Assisted Outpatient Treatment to Oklahomans in an on-going mental health crisis. She traveled to Washington D.C. to advocate for mental health reform, encouraging federal legislators to vote for the “Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act,” which passed in the House and Senate in 2016.
