Protect and Improve Affordable Care Mental Health Coverage

It pains me to think of all the mentally ill persons languishing on our streets or in our prisons. So many are uniquely brilliant in ways we are only beginning to understand.

What’s more, the NRA and supporting politicians argue that we don’t need better gun control, we need better treatment of mental illness. So it is completely irrational and incomprehensible to me how someone could be against gun control as well as against the treatment of mental health issues made possible by the Affordable Care Act.

In this regard, I hope you’ll read the very moving and pertinent article below, forward it to your Congress men/women, and ask them to ensure that Mental Health provisions are sincerely and seriously protected in whatever replaces the Affordable Care Act.
