Good point. With the debates of about mass shootings and gun control in the US the mental health issues have been a topic of discussion. I think in every case the shooter was known to have mental health issues. Problem is, unlike years ago when these buildings were in use, it's virtually impossible to civilly commit someone *before* they do something awful. (That's not to say the old system didn't have problems of it's own, abuse, poor conditions, etc.)
