People With Mental Health Disabilities Shut Down Dangerous Ideas About Gun Violence

Rooted in Rights: Disability Rights are Human Rights

Rooted in Rights produced a video that includes people with Mental Health disabilities and their opinions on gun violence.  Per Rooted in Rights: “The assertion that severe mental illnesses cause gun violence, specifically mass shootings, is not helpful and not accurate, but it is harmful. It is a dangerous idea. And we hear it from the media and our leaders all the time. Worse, no one ever seems to ask people with mental health disabilities what they think. So we asked. And here’s what they said.”
