The state cut back mental health resources several years ago. It is a wonder we have not had more of the disasters of Newtown. It is horrible. People need mental health help. Families are exhausted dealing with sick family members. The hospitals (and there are not enough)that have beds are either full or refuse to take patients without insurance. Patients walk out of facilities every day. There are alot more mental health issues out there than the average joe knows. Parents can not necessarily make a kid sometimes fifty pounds or more, heavier and much stronger take medication when he refuses. The government needs more resources ($$$$$$) when these problems arise. Gun control is not the answer. Criminals and mentally ill will find weapons if they want them. Imagine what a mentally ill person with a knife could do. They do not care about themselves. Any person who did actually care about himself would never be involved in such a situation. Get mental health help and medication and increase the STATE HOSPITAL'S BUDGET before we make another headline.
