Tragic incidents ensue—take "Thomas," for example. The report follows the 15-year-old boy from the streets of San Jose, Calif., to juvenile hall to an inpatient mental health facility. Thomas had appeared before judges on numerous delinquency charges before being diagnosed with bipolar disorder. After the diagnosis, a judge placed him in a locked mental health facility with "generic programming" and rigid schedules to which Thomas did not adjust. Without specialized care, Thomas became more agitated and eventually escaped. He wandered the streets, was picked up by police, brought back to juvenile hall, and went back into the mental health facility.
