The Pentagon Tragedy: Mental Illness, Violence and What Reporters Should Ask
Date:3/6/2010

delayed or denied? When?
  • Where seen? By whom? How often?
  • Was follow-up care provided?
  • Was treatment coordinated among different professionals?
  • What kind of social and peer support was the person getting?
  • Taking medication? Why or why not?
  • Were side-effects a factor in discontinuation? Did doctor recently change diagnosis or prescriptions?
  • Was there substance abuse?
  • What events may have triggered the psychiatric crisis?
  • Did family members receive education and support?
  • Were there past interactions with police or  courts?
  • Was court-ordered treatment ever utilized? Why or why not?

  • Early news reports have indicated that many of these questions are relevant in understanding what happened in this case.

    We must use it as an opportunity to fix any holes that exist in the mental health care system –and at a time when massive state budget cuts are destroying mental health services, to protect and strengthen those that do exist.
