Epidemic Ignored

Have you read this series? You should. It's the culmination of months of reporting from The Oklahoman's Jaclyn Cosgrove on how our state's jails have become "de facto warehouses" for those with mental illness and substance abuse problems.

Chapter 2: We have criminalized being mentally ill

Chapter 3: 'A history lesson'

Chapter 4: 'A call to action'
