The silent crisis in Virginia's public mental health hospitals is now screaming for attention.
A devastating consultant's report and a high profile pledge from Governor Jim Gilmore to fix the system have set the stage for solutions.
But state doctors already know of one solution that could dramatically change the lives of many of Virginia's most vulnerable citizens.
It's a magic pill-- literally.

Available since 1990, "atypical antipsychotics" like Clozaril have been changing lives.
But at a per patient cost of five to eight thousand dollars a year, versus 100 dollars a year for the old drugs like Halperidol... only the most violent patients are getting the wonder drugs.

NOT A POLITICAL OR BUDGETARY ONE.)) [runs:21]
Despite three commissions now studying mental health -- including Governor Jim Gilmore's high profile one -- Virginia politicians already have a lot of the answers.
A legislative report dated last July puts the price tag on the drugs at 67 million dollars a year to treat all 22- thousand public mental health patients who could use them in communities and hospitals across the Commonwealth.
The latest budget offers up 13 million dollars over two years for the drugs.
