America is “treating” mental illness through incarceration - and the price we are paying both in dollars and human capital is enormous. This is Crazy: Criminalizing Mental Health is our latest three-part series focusing on the problems with criminalizing mental health told through first-hand accounts. Part one shows what happens when police are not properly trained to deal with people with mental illness.
Parts two and three are coming soon.
