You have said the magic word 'easy' and I would also like to add 'cheap' way out. It is not only in America unfortunately as it is very time and resource expensive to treat the cause of mental problems of each patient, and this is made even worse when there are no carers (relatives or friends) available to support the patient. In many cases the cause is fundamental and its change require changing of social and government practices.
