This is a very perceptive take on the issue. Some of the cutting edge of Medicaid research is now looking into how to assure that people leaving prisons, or other high-risk groups, have uninterrupted access to medications. I hope that there are more successful efforts in this area.

I think it's important to be clear that psychotropic medications are prescribed for a lot of very different kinds of disorders. There is a valid argument against (over)medicating people diagnosed with such "disorders" as attention-deficit and dysthymia. Medication for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and severe depression is another story.
