Treatment Before Tragedy

Stay Connected

We spotlight tragedies in which there was a history of serious mental illness not adequately treated. Something to ask ourselves: Were these tragedies that could have been prevented if our mental health care system wasn't broken? 

Our CONDOLENCES

We extend our deepest sympathy to all who experience trauma, pain and grief from tragedies in which serious mental illness has not been treated properly.

OUR INTENTION

Our intention is to learn from the tragedies that befall our families and communities to break the cycle of violence and sorrow..

OUR UNDERSTANDING

There is no glory in tragedy. Just sorrow.  We understand that some believe that perpetrators of crimes shouldn't be named. We name them to understand them.
