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.
