Description

The Journal Sentinel tells the stories of five mentally ill Wisconsin residents lost in the state deinstitutinalized mental health care system. Deinstitunilization "was simple in concept: Instead of housing the stark hospital fortress of the era, all but the most dangerous or self-destructive would be released into what advocates hoped would be caring communities across the land." Today, the stories reveal, some of the released walk the streets, and some have been accepted back into society. But -- more or less -- the well-intentioned reforms in the mental health care system from a generation ago have changed their lives.
