People with mental problems are our neigbors. They are members of our congregations, members of our families: they are everywhere in the country. (in the world)
If we ignore their cries for help, we will continue to participate in the anguish from which those cries for help come. A problem of this magnitude will not go away. And because it will not go away, and because of our spiritual commitments, we are compelled to take action.
