Great post.

The issue you highlight toward the end is whether people asking for changes are reforming the right problem. If no one initiates the process, making it easier is meaningless.

In Mississippi, a family member can initiate the process. Problem here? Inadequate hospital beds. They will place a patient who has done nothing but be mentally ill in the county jail awaiting a hospital bed.

This is a good post. Congresswoman Schultz is a close friend of Gabby Giffords so I wouldn't be very hard on her. But she does need to bone up on the facts.

A lot of food for thought here; and now the arrest of Mr. Fuller. Hopefully the debate will lead to properly supported mental health services everywhere.

I bet putting people in jail when they haven't committed a crime is real helpful with depression. Being in the psych ward leaves enough scars. I can't believe they do this to people.

I agree. Better that Jared Loughner went on a murderous shooting rampage instead of being emotionally scarred by hospitalization for a serious mental illness.
