Innovative Strategies in Mental Health Treatment

According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness, one in five Americans find themselves in a mental health crisis in any given year. That means that 43.8 Americans yearly suffer from mental illness. Today we are in a crisis in treating people with mental illness. Access to care has been significantly curtailed by the closure of numerous mental health clinics. Often people with serious mental illness get help only if and when they hit rock bottom and are fortunate enough to be hospitalized at a facility which is pro-active in mental health treatment. Sometimes necessary mental health treatment is only provided once a person with mental illness becomes a defendant in a criminal case. To complicate matters more, often persons with mental illness refuse to cooperate with available treatment. Families are confused and frustrated with the law and with options for treatment.
