Disappointed in state mental health system
My reason for this letter is to express my dissatisfaction with the state of the mental health care system. Having to deal with this for the last 20 years, I have first-hand knowledge of the lack of support for our mental health professionals. These folks are overwhelmed with patients due to the scaling back of facilities for the mentally ill.
I, along with the rest of the nation, was saddened at the tragic event in Connecticut. This event, along with many others, large and small, was carried out by a person with a mental illness, probably diagnosed but not yet proved to be a threat to themselves or others.
The basic problem with the mental health patients is that they can live normal, productive lives while taking meds. Unfortunately, they feel fine and decide they no longer need these meds. As they regress into psychotic states, they don’t realize anything is wrong.
