The Stigma of Mental Illness In America

1 comment:

  1. The scenario in California and prior to that in Colorado and Arizona are not good examples when considering the millions of Americans who suffer from mental Illness and are in no way a danger to themselves or others. Look how many Americans suffer from what is truly a clinical and chemical imbalanced depression and contribute to our society with their different brain, viewing the world in their button down way and being highly successful. The problem is not with the inmates, it is with an asylum whose failings are evident in a limited foray into R&D on the part of the drug companies, a lack of beds and a rush to "Kick" a patient out of the hospital. Our country needs to treat this problem in a more concerted effort as opposed to taking an executive's printer and computer away when he comes back from the psych ward. Jay Adler Comment
