A relentless WXYZ-TV investigation is credited for prompting major proposed reforms to Michigan's mental health code; measures that probate judges say will save lives and drastically improve care for the state's most vulnerable. The ongoing series documented an underfunded, disjointed and sometimes inhumane state mental health system that, in 2014, was rated 41st out of 50 states. In 9 separate reports, WXYZ's relentless series documented the plight of men, women and children struggling with a mental illness who received meager care from the state. Through its reporting, WXYZ prompted the Governor's office to form a special task force designed to change Michigan law and provide more meaningful care for the mentally ill.
