Brain control is as important as gun control

To the Editor:

I am wondering where National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) weighs in on this conversation. They supposedly lead the way on ways to care for the mentally ill. So far not one newscaster that I have heard has had interviews with anyone from this organization.

The hometown papers across the nation should have front page, large print, bullet itemized short paragraphs on how to deal with a post adolescent loved one you feel is becoming out of touch with reality. This information should be repeated every month forever and ever.

Who to turn to in your community with a phone number; steps to take for court orders to commit to a psychiatric facility; and what to expect both time-wise and financially.

When the eyes of a young adult fill with that round glassy stare, you know he/she is probably well on their way to a psychotic break.

How many times would this information have saved the lives of crowds of loved ones?

Taking action without hesitation is of utmost importance when our loved ones suffer from any illness whether physical or mental. We need to be our brother’s keeper – all of us need to speak up when we notice peculiar behavior. Brain control is as important as gun control.
