POLL: In the Wake of the Tucson Shootings, Looking at Mental Health Care Issues

BlogHer Original Post
Both Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) and BlogHer member Ashleigh Burroughs continue their recoveries from the shootings in Tucson less than two weeks ago, and we are hopeful that important conversations will also continue.
Last week's post and poll about the political aspect of the Tucson shootings highlighted that we have a lot to talk about. While it may be a national habit to let today's outrage become tomorrow's old news, we'd like to explore what the BlogHer community is thinking and feeling about another aspect of the events in Tucson: mental health.
It's clear it's top of mind with BlogHers, and reviewing the questions so many were asking, I realized: I would have very little idea how to help someone in my life in need if they weren't on my own health plan.
So, once again, we're asking you: What do you think? What do you know? But also: What would you do?
