Thanks, Mark, for continuing to keep this issue in front of people.
When voters seem far more willing to spend tax dollars on for-profit prisons than mental health care in either non-profit or for-profit business models, it’s not surprising that it’s treated as a law enforcement rather than a public health problem. Nor is it surprising when mental health is blamed for mass murder, despite the obvious fact that most mentally ill are more likely to kill themselves than anyone else and most killers aren’t mentally ill.
