Stephen Eide, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, is the author of a new report about New York’s inpatient mental healthcare system, the state push toward deinstitutionalization, and what it has meant for people with serious mental illness and New York City. "Cuts to state psychiatric hospital beds has coincided, in recent years, with increasing mental illness-related pressures on the city’s homeless services and criminal justice systems," Eide argues.
