Families Failed by Mental Health System

I’ve looked at several articles lately that attempt to articulate the current mental healthcare situation, but I recently found one over at Time by Maia Szalavitz called America’s Failing Mental Health System: Families Struggle to Find Quality Care that really took it to a new place for me.

It is a little dry, but I think this article is able to grasp the gravity of what many of us have been saying for years; it sucks trying to get mental health care in America.

In light of the string of current violent events, mental healthcare is something that is finally getting some attention in our country… I’m hopeful that with enough people voicing their concern, things could actually change for the better.
