Due to Leeland Eisenberg's hostage crisis, mental health will get the spotlight
Advertisements [?]
along with the other health care problems in this country. Although I don't at all agree with how he has done it, Eisenberg has brought, and will bring more attention to the utter ignoring of mental health care in this country. Apparently Eisenberg staged this hostage crisis with road flares taped to his body because he his self has mental problems, he knows he has mental problems, is sane enough to know he needs help but he wasn't able to get the help he needs. Now I don't know how rational the choice was, but he chose to stage the hostage crisis out of sheer frustration probably exacerbated by his mental health. If there is some good to come from this it should be a concerted attempt to address the mental health of all Americans.
