This book interweaves two stories. The first details the author's struggle to help his adult son grapple with the public health system and find meaningful treatment after being diagnosed with a mental illness. The second story describes a year-long investigation in which the author examined the conditions under which psychotic prisoners are often kept. The two stories together show American abandons chronically mentally ill people.
