When I was in a psychiatric hospital for a brief stay, one of the girls I befriended was a schizophrenic with suicidal and homicidal thoughts. While she was on her meds she wasn’t dangerous at all. She told me that her insurance would run out soon and she would be released… and she was terrified. She was well aware that she was sick and that the meds helped calm her delusions, but being released without meds would likely mean her hurting herself or someone else. The scariest part is she TOLD the psychiatrists this, and there was nothing they could do.
And this is why we keep hearing about mentally ill people committing crimes on the news… because nobody wants to pay to treat and hold people who need help. You have to have money, because healthcare is all about cash.
