Wrong. You can legislate for mental illness in that we start addressing it correctly. We can expect our mental health facilities to actually work. To allow the sick to stay there long enough to obtain an accurate diagnosis and ensure their meds are working. Then, a program to ensure they take their meds after they leave. I used to work in that field and I can tell you for fact that our mental health system is broken. That parents have no help, especially after they turn 18. That the helps is useless that they do get. That they feel alone and scared to death for their child. I've seen it time after time in the psychiatric hospital/facilities i worked. I've lived it with my nephew and sister.
