Creigh Deeds: I am so determined he is not remembered by the end of his life

Virginia State Senator Creigh Deeds is on a mission to fix America's mental health system. Deeds fought to get his only son Gus the treatment he needed but, instead, he says "the system failed him." Last November, Gus was put under an emergency custody order at a Virginia hospital. When doctors failed to find an available psychiatric bed, Sen. Deeds was forced to bring Gus home. The next day Gus attacked his father with a knife, before turning a gun on himself. Creigh Deeds survived, and told Anderson "there are so many good memories. That's what I need to focus on."
