While federal investigators and the news media try to uncover the motivation behind Saturday's shooting rampage in Tucson, the picture emerging of the accused gunman, Jared Lee Loughner, is of a severely disturbed 22-year-old. Loughner's apparent mental health problems have shone a spotlight on issues surrounding mental health treatment in Arizona, which made drastic budget cuts to behavioral health services in 2010. Democracy Now! speaks with H. Clarke Romans of the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Southern Arizona.
