    This hits so close to home, I cried. People never really understand when you tell them that you cannot have your homeless child living with you because you are afraid of them. You call crisis and you called the police but because your loved one can pull it together for six minutes they can get no help. The shortage of psychiatric beds is a tragedy. The most ill are forced into prison or onto the streets. People need a bed instead. #aBedInstead
