Reporter Neely Tucker’s latest novel takes on mental health care in America by telling the story of a family that received inadequate care for generations. Their story takes a very local turn, ending at St. Elizabeths in D.C. While the story is fiction, it speaks to the reality for many in need of mental health services in this country and region. We talk with a long-time mental health service provider who works with vulnerable citizens about the state of mental health care, progress made in recent years and the way forward.
