"Acceptance and expectation of abuse and neglect in state hospitals are a large part of the problem"

That's the title of this post by the blogger Hymes in response to the Associated Press article about the systemic abuse and neglect of patients in Texas state hospitals.

And here is another post about it, titled "Happy happy joy joy ... uh ... maybe not," by Liz Spikol, who blogs about mental illness policy and news at Trouble with Spikol.

Both posts about this important issue are recommended reading.
