TELEMUNDO KVEA 52 GOT AN ALL ACCESS PASS INTO THE LARGEST MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY IN THE COUNTRY. THE TWIN TOWERS CORRECTIONAL FACILITY IN LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA. DUE TO YEARS OF CUTS BY BOTH THE FEDERAL AND STATE GOVERNMENT IN MENTAL HEALTH PROGRAMS AND HOSPITALS, THE NUMBER OF MENTALLY ILL INMATES HAS INCREASED DRAMATICALLY OVER THE LAST FEW DECADES. THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY SHERIFFS AND THE LOS COUNTY MENTAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT WORK HARD TO TRY AND PROVIDE THE BEST SERVICES FOR THESE ILL INMATES. BUT IS THERE MORE THAT CAN BE DONE? CAN THE STATE AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT LOOK INTO PROVIDING MORE CARE IN MAIN-STREAM AMERICA? RUBEN LUENGAS PRESENTS A FULL REPORT.
