Letter to the Editor: On Mental Health

In response to an opinion article titled, “Are Prisons Our Best Mental Health Solution?” which said: “In 2016, a Slate article wrote, ‘America’s prisons have become warehouses for the mentally ill.’”


Dear Editor,

For all the reasons I would avoid “the” Blacks, I would avoid “the” mentally ill.


Harold A. Maio, retired mental health editor
