Already there are way too many reporting requirements for mental health professionals. This is a very difficult problem, but I’d err on the side of not making people afraid to seek mental health care.

I think the litigation over Elliot Roger will end up at the deepest pockets–the drug companies (assuming the reports of him taking anti-psychotic medication are accurate.)
