Providing more inpatient programs and units in hospitals for children and teens with psychiatric problems so that they don't go out and commit crimes against others or even themselves.
There need to be more inpatient mental health units for children and teens in hospitals. To many young people are going out and committing violent crimes and sometimes even turning against themselves violently due to mental health issues that are either over looked, not known about, or just not taken seriously enough.
Instead of putting all these young people in jail, where there is no real help, and where things could possibly get worse, they need to be put in programs that will help them.
