    Florida: 49th in mental health — going for 50th?

    Florida ranks 49th when it comes to mental-health funding. It's an embarrassing and odious distinction — one that leaves struggling families adrift. It's also (perhaps ironically) a costly one. Taxpayers still end up paying for mental-health...
