*eval, not veal. Sorry.
Happening to my family member now. Been without psyche meds and T2 diabetes meds since 7/31/14. MH and medical staff have ignored repeated requests. This is ongoing problem with mentally ill in jail here. Complaints go unheard and resolved. Judge says it is up to jail staff if a person gets their meds. Judge can court order veal and meds but jail staff don't have to obey court orders. Something needs to be done. Last time family member in jail due to psychosis episode, private atty hired, but jail staff threatened family member to back off or else. We all did for safety of our family member.
