mental illnessHow is it possible that our media and the government are so focused on gun control and no one is talking about mental illness with regards to the tragic shooting in Connecticut.

We need funding from the government to start educating those on mental illness and have a cultural dialogue on the realities of mental illness to stop such atrocities from occurring in the future.

It is time to wake up America. Period.
