The past couple weeks has presented yet another round of mass shootings.  Mass shootings continue to plague the United States, leaving a trail of devastation and sparking widespread debates. While the reasons behind this trend are multifaceted and complex, it is crucial to highlight one of the root causes.

Mental health problems affect individuals worldwide, yet the United States faces particular challenges in terms of access to mental healthcare and support systems. Insufficient mental health services and stigmatization of those seeking help can contribute to a higher risk of violence. By comparing countries with stronger mental health support systems, it becomes apparent that effective mental health infrastructure is crucial for mitigating the risk of mass shootings.  

I can't help but wonder when the powers that be will address this cancerous national issue head on.
