Crime in NYC up 38.5% from last year, sparking conversation about mental health

New NYPD statistics show that crime has increased by 38.5% in comparison to last year, but does this spike have anything to do with the nationwide mental health crisis?
News 12's Mary Lyn Buckley speaks with Dr. Neil Berliner, the medical director of Bridging Access to Care NYC, and Eileen Sunshine, the chief program officer of Bridging Access to Care NYC, about the misconception of people with mental health struggles being the majority of those who commit violence acts.
Berliner says he believes that the mental health crisis is stemming from the aftereffects of COVID-19.
