Default Mental health care "state of emergency"

I know better than to expect much sympathy for Illinois prison inmates, even the ones suffering from a serious mental illness.
But maybe some of you will recognize your own self-interest in this matter, considering how 95 percent of these people will get out of prison at some point.

The filing comes a week after a court-appointed federal monitor advised state corrections officials by letter that poor psychiatric care continues to create a “state of emergency” in Illinois prisons.
The lawyers want U.S. District Judge Michael Mihm to enforce a settlement agreement reached in May 2016 with Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration promising to overhaul mental health care in the prisons.
