More and more is being released about Adam Lanza, the suspect in the Connecticut shooting that happened last week.
A mediator in his parents' divorce stated Lanza's mother didn't like to leave him alone and that his parents went out of their way to accommodate him.
Lanza is said to have had a form of autism called: Asperger's Syndrome and it's brought national attention to how our country handles mental health.
When it comes to families and mental health, an ounce of prevention can be worth a pound of cure.
"Unfortunately, the stigma in our country is that mental health is not to be talked about. It's really important that people look at mental health just like we do our regular health, and that we take care of our brains and our emotions like we would take care of our hearts or our bodies," said Sara Beauchamp-Hicks, a therapist with Children See.
Beauchamp-Hicks and her husband have a blended family with five young children and she says therapy is part of what helps her family become a stronger unit.
"This is a great place for kids to be able to work through all of their emotions," says Hicks.
"The vast majority of people who have autism and aspergers are not going to do this. And the vast majority of people who are going to seek mental health help or need mental health help are not serial killers who are going to go and kill 20 kids in a school," said one social worker.
