In this episode, we delve into the depths of mental health institutions and the consequences of negligence.

We begin in Somerset, England, where the tragic fate of 28-year-old Lily Lucas unfolds within the walls of Cygnet Hospital. Diagnosed with schizophrenia and prescribed clozapine, Lily's life takes a fatal turn when supervision fails her in a moment of need. As we dissect the oversight that led to her drinking fatal amounts of water, we're left to ponder the responsibilities of those charged with care.

Then, we turn our gaze to Mississippi's dark underbelly, where over 800 individuals languish in uncertified jails, awaiting psychiatric treatment. With only one jail meeting state standards, we expose the systemic failure that leaves the mentally ill shackled, untreated, and forgotten. As we navigate through the state's legal loopholes and the shocking absence of care, we are confronted with a stark reality: the intersection of mental health and the justice system is fraught with peril.

I invite you to reflect on the dire need for reform and the importance of proper care for those struggling with mental illness. Share your thoughts, experiences, and join the conversation by participating in our poll: Should police be trained to handle mental health crises, or should there be a dedicated mental health response team?

Stay with us as we continue to shine a light on the darkest corners of love and heartbreak turned to homicide. And remember, it's all love and no murder.
