Adam Lanza, a 20-year old man, after first killing his mother, went to a Newtown Connecticut Elementary school, shot and killed 20 first-graders and six adults. This incident has focused a lot of attention on mental illness and mental health issues.  

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, in the latest annual National Survey on Drug Use and Health Report,  reports that one in five American adults suffered from mental illness within the past year, with one in 20 serious mental illness that resulted in "functional impairment".  That being the case, it begs the question of why mental health care in various communities has been undergoing cuts and experiencing less support from the government. Currently, the largest mental health facilities are for inmates at the Los Angeles County Jail in California, Cook County Jail in Illinois and Rikers Island in New York.
