Petition to Increase Mental Heath Services

In light of the recent shooting, I have received many petitions to sign. I have always been an active citizen, and regularly sign petitions. However, the recent incident has generated many petitions I do not wish to sign, for various reasons. I just signed this petition, however, because I would sign it any day of the week–school shooting or not. It clearly states that most people with mental illness are not violent, which is true. It is also beneficial to make this point, so as not to scapegoat people with mental illness (especially in light of the fact that violence comes more from people with substance abuse problems).¬†¬†Please review this petition and consider signing.
