    The waterford is probably the worst place to bring somebody with mental problems , .especially for the weak and defensless...our govt. has to do better than this ...we have to speak out .,

    I totally agree with Tina's view. She is 100% correct. There is great need for people to have help and better resources. The lack to do so creates a risk for everyone that is sad when things happen and it is too late because the system said "There is nothing we can do".

    Kudos to Tina for coming forward with her story --- that took alot of courage. She speaks the truth. There are too many people living with mental illness such as she described that are not getting the help they need -- leaving them at risk to themselves and others, and placing family and friends under massive stress as they are left to be caregiver and gate keeper. It's all but impossible to get someone properly assessed and admitted for treatment, or even followed IN COMMUNITY. It appears that if a person has even a "lucid 'moment" they are released and nothing can be done. The police can only do what they can do from a legal sense...it's the mental health system that's at fault here. Sad to say, but the alarms will only sound when something serious happens resulting in extreme violence or death...kinda like closing the gate after the horse. Like anything else...EARLY INTERVENTION & PREVENTION are the key.
