Call Made For Improved Access To Mental Health Services

In an editorial, the Baltimore Sun (10/7) reports that in wake of “last week’s shooting at Umpqua Community College that left 10 dead, there has been a steady drumbeat of calls for better care” for people who suffer from mental illnesses. The Sun points out that even though “improving access to mental health services” would likely not “prevent the next mass shooting or even significantly reduce violence on the streets,” it would certainly “greatly improve the quality of life for the estimated 5.6 million Americans with a mental illness.”
