America's mental health care crisis

Warning signs missed, cries for help ignored – it is a story at the heart of the Newtown school shooting and the Creigh Deeds attempted murder-suicide. But the truth is, it happens across the country. Ten percent of all homicides in the U.S. are committed by people with untreated mental illnesses, and at least 450,000 mentally ill Americans are living in jails and prisons because public resources have been cut. While the full picture is only beginning to emerge, it is becoming increasingly clear: America has a mental health care crisis.

Our reporters and expert guests looked into the system that is supposed to treat some of society's most vulnerable and found some disturbing results.

CNN's Brian Todd investigates the state of the mental health care system in the United States and finds experts pleading for more resources.

Jim Acosta talks to Dr. Drew Pinsky, Sheriff Tom Dart, and Sen. Richard Blumenthal about the state of our crumbling mental health care system and its effects on the rest of society.

Obamacare effects emerging

One of the biggest criticisms of the Affordable Care Act is that lawmakers did not know exactly how it would impact average Americans, the insurance market, hospitals, and more. In a campaign tagline that Republicans have criticized, Pres. Obama told Americans with health insurance, "If you like your plan, you can keep it" - a claim that for some, has turned out not to be true. But other Americans, who never thought they could afford health insurance, are surprised to find out they qualify for lower costs and greater coverage. So what's the bottom line? How is Obamacare impacting the average American?

CNN investigates in two special reports. And we invite you to share your story with us: If you've been impacted by the law, let us know - on Twitter, on Facebook, or via email.

Rep. Rogers: Secret talks raise "unnecessary suspicions"

House Intelligence Committee Chair Mike Rogers tells Wolf Blitzer that Congress was not told about secret talks with Iran that set the stage for the deal over Iran's nuclear program - and that the deal does not get enough concessions from Iran in return for an easing of sanctions that takes the pressure off the Iranian economy.
