Mental health reform has been in the air since the tragic 2012 mass shooting in Newtown, CT. In that time, the nation has witnessed 74 more school shootings. Justified or not, these crimes continue to fuel public discourse about our present mental health system. Many of these instances, including last month’s mass killing in Isla Vista, CA, highlight one glaring inadequacy: how difficult it is for families to get help for their loved ones experiencing a mental health crisis.
