I think this says a great deal about our mental health system. I'm sure this father saw that his daughter had issues since he was checking her journal but under our system a parent or relative can do nothing if the individual is 18 or older. It is sad that it required a borderline catastrophe and the intervention of the police before anything could be done. For the sake of the mentally unstable and society at large we need to modify some of these laws and provide some safe way of dealing with people who have mental health issues.
