Maryland’s stricter gun control law went into effect earlier this month. The law bans military-style assault weapons, large-capacity magazine clips, and requires licensing, fingerprinting, and safety training for new gun purchasers. It also has provisions for mental health treatment. It creates a new initiative aimed at identifying psychosis at its earliest stages. It's called the Center for Excellence on Early Intervention for Serious Mental Illness.

With Sheilah to talk about it is Jason Schiffman. He's an associate professor and psychologist at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. He is a leading member at the center, focusing on early intervention.
