How Mental illnesss hits Multiple Generations

This weekend's Seattle times has an excellent story of how one family was impacted by mental illness in multiple generations;

The story talks about how "Carolyn blames many of her family's problems on mental illness. But they could just as easily be blamed on job loss and a depressed economy, on government cutbacks, or the difficulty of accessing what mental-health services remain. She could blame the hospital that didn't think Bryan was sick enough, or the system that allowed him to acquire a handgun with ease. Others might simply blame Bryan.

But this story isn't about blame. It's about a family — well-educated, middle-class, loving and generous — and what happened when they lost their footing."
