As Congress and the State of Utah continue to look at health care reform, I believe we cannot overlook mental health and addictive disorders in any of our health care reform recommendations. Mental illness is exactly that–an illness–and it can be treated.
In a collaborative effort with Sybil Richard, Deputy Secretary, Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, I wrote an essay on mental health and addictive disorders. Please click here to read the essay (then click on “Mental Health and Addictive Disorders” in Table of Contents).
