Guns, Media, and Mental Illness After Newtown

Guns, Media, and Mental Illness After Newtown

I have plenty of fears for the mentally ill. None of them involve guns. I fear for them when they struggle to navigate a labyrinthine medical system and fight for the care they need. I fear for them when they struggle to find a helpful psychologist or therapist that they can also afford. I fear for them because they are much more likely to be the victims of a violent crime. But I feel especially afraid for them every time the media latches onto a faulty narrative and makes their world a little less safe.
