New White Paper Outlines Senators’ Bold Vision for Reforming Mental Health In U.S. in Light of the COVID-19 Pandemic
A new bipartisan report on mental health reform released today by Senators Michael Bennet (D-CO) and John Cornyn (R-TX) outlines a bold vision for reforming mental health in America. The report addresses three key elements: the mental health services workforce, coordination of federal funding, and improved access to, and delivery of services.
“Mental health is truly one of the most significant bipartisan policy issues out there,” said Dr. Benjamin Miller, President of Well Being Trust. “Having two Senate leaders emerge with a plan that tackles mental health in a thoughtful and comprehensive way is what our nation needs now. From thinking more critically about our workforce and the role of community to solutions that integrate mental health, these Senators have offered a profound way forward that if pursued, could benefit countless families in our nation.”
