    It needs to be easier for the unemployed, underpaid and uninsured people with mental health issues to get medical care. Those without money can't afford to pay a doctor and go off medication.

    This won't be a popular answer but I work in a therapist's office and there are many opportunities for the mentally ill in our community.  All of the therapists in our town take their medicaid payment as full payment for treatment--so the poor in our community do have help available.  There is also a huge non-profit mental health center in our little town. 

    The problem becomes a little hopeless when you realize you help them all you can but then send them back home to their dysfunctional families and it is just sad.
