Criminalizing Mental Health - This Is Crazy

Part 1   Part 2                                

America is "treating" mental illness through incarceration - and the price we are paying both in dollars and human capital is enormous. It's time to take action and start treating mental illness as a health issue, not a crime. And there’s no excuse not to. Solutions have already started to be implemented in various cities around the US that save tax payers money and victims their human dignity. It’s time to make those solutions the norm, not the exception. 

These are the first 2 parts of a 3-part series from Brave New Films. Part three coming soon
