NOT the way to get mental health treatment

The man who took hostages at New Hampshire's Hillary Clinton campaign office was a mental health patient hoping to get help:
Police said [suspect Leeland] Eisenberg entered Clinton's campaign office with what he said was a bomb strapped to his chest. It turned out to be road flares held with duct tape, police said.

Before surrendering, Eisenberg, 46, complained about his inability to get mental health treatment.

Warren said his stepfather "needed help -- he couldn't get it."

Eisenberg had seen one of Clinton's campaign ads about how she helped an underinsured boy get a bone marrow transplant, Warren said.
