Rep. Murphy understands mental illness and the failures of the mental health care system. In December 2012, he introduced H.R.3717 - "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act." He discussed the bill in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, which is featured in the video http://youtu.be/gsUd8hMBAbA
