“Pittsburgh’s Missing Bridges” is a collaborative reporting project by the members of the Pittsburgh Media Partnership focused on inequality in the region and potential solutions.

Our current work explores our public health system’s response to mental health and how, in moments of crisis, the current system often asks those who are ill-equipped — local law enforcement, school resource officers, judges — to respond, evaluate and determine treatment. We’ll look at how our communities can coordinate better care and reduce our reliance on the criminal justice system while adapting to support the growing need for mental health care.
