CT Shooting Raises Mental Health Debate
Last week’s mass murder of 20 students and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School has brought new calls for gun control, but has also inspired a new appeal to make mental health services easier to acquire.
FOX News Radio’s Rich Johnson reports from Washington:
When it comes to figuring out what to do:
(Dr. Lindstrom) “We have a great deal of science around how to prevent, appropriately intervene and assess, as well as to treat.”
But Dr. Wayne Lindstrom, CEO of Mental Health America, says we don’t have the political will to put that knowledge to work. And while mental health’s been a low fiscal priority all along, it’s been really bad the past three years.
(Dr. Lindstrom) “We were under-capacity, under-resourced to meet the needs prior to 2009. And we are even in worse shape as a result of the recession.”
