Are we doing enough in Ohio to help those who suffer from mental illness before their condition results in injury to themselves or, in rare but horrific incidences, headline-grabbing outbursts of violence? On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll be joined by mental health experts to talk about how we care for the mentally ill in Ohio and what plans are in place, with budget belt-tightening on the way, to assure adequate care. Join the conversation Wednesday at 9 on 90.3.
