A Cry for Help

April 21, 2002

"An Rx Against Violence" (editorial, April 14) accurately depicts the landscape of treatment for mental illness in California. It is like a train wreck with bodies scattered and left to die.

As a person with mental illness I pray that AB 1421 passes. While I am recovering and now working, not so many years ago I was homeless and crying out in my own pain, "Don't touch me." Should I ever become that ill again, I hope AB 1421 will be available to help me if I am too sick to help myself.
