Summary
The author's son Tim is one of the '6 percent' -- an American with serious mental illness. He is also one of the half million homeless people with serious mental illnesses underserved or ignored by the US health and social-service systems. This exposé describes how Tim and others like him come to live on the street. The text takes stock of the numerous injustices that confronted Tim from the time he first began to show symptoms of schizophrenia, which included inadequate educational supports, isolation, and his encounters with the juvenile and adult criminal justice systems
