The NYT Editorial Is Depressingly Spot On!

October 10, 2022

I graduated from high school in the spring of 1963; in the fall of that year (less than a month before he was assassinated in Dallas, Texas) President John F. Kennedy signed the Community Mental Health Center Construction Act.   We have had, if you believe the premise of the Editorial,  the answer to the “mental health crisis” for the entirety of my adult life!

The Editorial ends with “It’s within our power to break that cycle now, and to change the way the most vulnerable among us live for generations to come.”   Maybe the future professionals in this field, who graduate from high school in 2023, will not have the same struggles!
