A fatherβs scars: For Va.βs Creigh Deeds, tragedy brings unending questions
Joyce Park stashed this in Brain injury
Truly devastating story about a Virginia legislator whose son's mental illness led to a murder attempt and suicide. No one wants to see a return to warehousing of the mentally ill, but leaving it all up to their families -- who often do not even have the right to know the patients' diagnosis -- leads to stories like this.
What a sad story -- kid from western Virginia, went to William and Mary.
Shows how devastating mental illness can be. :(
