From today’s Journal Sentinel:

Shortage of mental health care providers hits crisis point just as more teens seek help
quote from article:
It’s almost like they have to get into some sort of trouble before they get into services,” said Rauschenberger, who also serves as interim dean of Alverno College’s JoAnn McGrath School of Nursing. “They end up being incarcerated for really what is a health issue, and it shouldn’t have gotten that far.”
The shortage of mental health professionals is a crisis — particularly for youth, and more particularly for low-income families who use public insurance.
