Our country is facing a crisis of criminalization of mental health related issues. For those facing charges, along with conditions such as serious mental illness, PTSD, traumatic brain injury, or severe mood disorders, and their families, there is so much fear and confusion. Knowledge is the first step to success in your case, and stigma should not keep you from a winning defense to your charges.
