Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell ordered a statewide review of mental health services after the incident with Creigh Deeds.

McDonnell told the Washington Post that he ordered the Commonwealth's Secretary of Health and Human Resources to evaluate the overall capacity of Virginia's mental health system at both the state and local levels.

The governor also said he directed the secretary to review the sequence of events that led Gus Deeds to be released Monday following a mental health evaluation due to a lack of available psychiatric beds.
