Re: “Walters: Lawmakers Befuddled by Mental Health System

They are in a position to evaluate this system as the Legislature has spent years analyzing and playing with the health care system. The designated agencies are part of the problem....duplicate administrations, duplicate and differently implemented crisis services, community investments in non effective places. The system such as it is is woefully short of capacity with no real "system" of managing patients in it. Calls to DMH are often met with a "throw your hand up" respobse It is not that hard - the system needs beds, crisis assessment and stabilization facilities, and long term secure residential facilities that can manage this population in therapeutic ways.

Re: “ICE Detains Local Migrant Worker and Activist at Stowe Restaurant

There are legal ways to enter but our government does not make it easy. From the complex process, which requires a lawyer and thus $$$ to complete, to the endless delays and stall tactics, "missing" and "lost" paperwork, and a globally understaffed immigration service, we make doing the right thing almost impossible while whining all the time about those doing the wrong thing. We need immigration fixed!
