Treatment Before Tragedy

Chrisa Hickey2 comments3357 views

On this ninth anniversary of the tragic loss of 33 lives at Virginia Tech, please also remember:

Seung-Hui Cho Was diagnosed with mental illness before the age of 18.

Seung-Hui Cho’s family tried to keep him in treatment after age 18, but were unable to even know if he was in treatment because of HIPAA law.

Seung-Hui Cho sought treatment on his own while a student at Virginia Tech.

Seung-Hui Cho’s Doctor tried to have him committed as an inpatient but was denied by a Virginia judge.

Call and write your congressperson. Implore them to co-sponsor HR 2646.

  1. As a person who lived through this tragedy im glad to see someone open up and explain how mental health was a huge contributer this unforgettable massacre. To think it could’ve been prevented if given the appropriate help….. #neverforget

    1. Katrina, we can never forget the victims and the horrible things you lived through.

      We can prevent this from happening again. We must.
