Mental Health Care Reform
In light of the Navy Yard Shooting I am sure there is going to be more calls for Gun Control. However in this case and many others like it there has been multiple opportunities to have prevented the incident if it were not for the lack of mental health services at any level of government. The need for it seems genuine with as many as 1 in 5 suffering from some form of mental health illness. The resources for vets returning with PTSD is sadly very overburdened. I have read multiple articles about how a lot of these people are dumped off at jails and hospitals that are not properly equipped to handle these people. If not that they are left to the world, where not only are they suffering, but also a threat to themselves and others.
