Focusing on Mental Health in the Wake of Newtown


The debate over gun control has been dominating the headlines a month after Newtown, but away from the glare of news cameras there is also plenty of debate over mental health.

This weekend on Face the State we are joined by the Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, Pat Rehmer. Commissioner Rehmer answered some of the questions many of you have. How does one identify a dangerous, mentally ill person? Does she know how many deeply disturbed people are out there with sinister intentions?

It is a fascinating conversation, and you can watch it this Sunday morning at 11 on Face the State on WFSB Channel 3.

We also have an interview with former Attorney General candidate Martha Dean, and a vintage interview with Walter Cronkite. See you Sunday.
