The Criminalization of Mental Illness

Cook County Jail houses as many as 3,000 people with a diagnosed mental illness, making it the largest mental health facility in the country. Tom Dart has long fought to protect the most vulnerable members of our society. He has been recognized by health advocacy organizations for his push to end what has become a de facto criminalization of mental illness.
