See that's the catch in your question—what is legitimate mental healthcare? What have been the results so far? They admit they can't cure. So they control symptons through drugs. So it goes back to safer pharmaceuticals again. They are using primarily pharmaceuticals with worse side-effects. Another issue, is damaged veterans returning from wars or even if they haven't returned yet. I am speaking of the rise in suicides. Some of them come back, after getting care and shoot their wives or kill someone else. So we can end this permanent warfare.
I am not talking about the emptying of asylums where many ended up on the streets homeless. A lot of that funding was cut. I haven't kept up since then on those cuts though.
