The State of Mental Health - Iowa

According to some in the "political class" there are no mental health issues in Iowa. "We're doing just fine..." If that is the case why do we see, time and again, individuals suffering with a mental health crisis murder family members, police officers and others? How is the lack of mental health treatment in Iowa impacting businesses and families. Finally, why has Iowa decided to move mental health treatment from clinics to jail cells? Our guest is Peggy Huppert from the National Alliance of Mental Illness - Iowa (NAMI-Iowa) those questions and more. And, because NAMI-Iowa continues to lobby for reality in mental health they must raise funds to do so...and we end the segment with a new adventure "Beautiful Minds" on May 19. To register, click here. We know this is a long, long-form interview but...please listen.
