When hospitals release seriously mentally ill patients too soon without outpatient follow-up, the patients can end up homeless, jailed, harming others, or even dead. When patients are deemed suitable for inpatient care, they can languish for weeks in hospital emergency departments before placements become available. Meanwhile, patients who fake the need for care are smoothly and swiftly moved to inpatient settings.

Two-year anniversary of the publication of my award-winning and best-selling book, "Breakdown"!

Using vignettes based on real interactions with patients, their families, police officers, and other providers, Breakdown appeals for common-sense solutions.

May/June 2020 issue - "If the officer had known that delusional patients often lack insight, perhaps he wouldn't have chosen such a brutally honest approach. He might not have disputed her belief that the food was contaminated. Jessica's lack of insight was impenetrable, and the officer was not part of a specialized Crisis Intervention Team (CIT)...All officers are required to have a basic knowledge of mental illness, but most are not part of CIT units."

"I was hooked on this book starting at the 'Dedication: For seriously mentally ill people who need help but lack the capacity to request it.' This is not just well-researched...Many people stop at discussing and identifying the problem, or as she refers to it our 'broken system', but Lynn goes in depth to outline the reasons, and then she offers evidence-based, practical solutions."
