Mental Health Parity Call-in Day 12/07/2007

I love the USA and am proud to be an American, but mental health care here sucks. As far as health insurance goes, even though psychiatry is a medical specialty, benefits pertaining to mental health are in a separate section of the policy and are NOT the same as those pertaining to other medical specialties.

Please, if you or someone you know would appreciate access to mental health equal to that of all other health care, take a little time today to read this blog entry about Mental Health Parity Call-in Day in the US, and make a quick phone call to your elected government officials. To shamefully borrow from the NAACP, “The mind is a terrible thing to waste.”

Thanks for your time.
