On Newtowns Anniversary,Americas mental health system is still a mess.


In this article, the audience reads about Americas mental health system.Since the Newtons incident last year there has been numerous amounts of shootings that have occurred because of the mentally ill, and to be exact there has been 14 in total since the Sandy Hook incident. With these numbers it would suggest that our government should have done something about it. And  of course they have, Obama has passed many acts and there has been alot of money put into institutions for the mentally ill. But, as the article suggests these by making many institutions doesn't mean the rates of killing will go down. There is more that we need to do as a nation to fix these problems.
In this article I learned that people are trying to make things better but we are not where we need to be with the amount of people dying.
In my opinion I believe the mentally ill should be taken care of more seriously. And I am not stating that because they are mentally ill that they will do something wrong. But because they are mentally unstable anything can tick in their mind to make the explode.
