No more Auroras: #Tb4T launches

July 20th, two years ago, shots rang out in a theater in Aurora, Colorado. That night, a young man, James Holmes, killed and injured innocent moviegoers, out to watch “Batman: Dark Knight Rises.” Last week, District Judge Carlos A. Samour Jr. ordered that Holmes’ court case be delayed to Dec. 8 after a doctor asked for additional time to complete Holmes’ second sanity evaluation. Holmes was diagnosed for schizophrenia but on that fateful night, he was not treated adequately.

On the two-year anniversary of that ominous day, Treatment Before Tragedy launched. It is a nonprofit advocating for better treatment, services, research and a cure for those with serious mental illness and their families.

From around the country–and the world–family and community members have joined us. Blogger and writer Liza Long, who inspired so many family members to voice with her blog, “I am Adam Lanza’s mother, extended her support.
