The recent 60 Minutes segment: Denied is opening up a conversation in the media that is long overdue. Through this, we learned about the work that Patrick Kennedy has been doing to establish parity of coverage. Check out the Kennedy Forum website for more information and to see his interview with CBS on their morning show.
If only parity would mean residential care - it actually doesn't. And as the 60 Minutes segment shows, residential care remains expensive and unpaid.
Excited to be hearing a national conversation at long last on these topics, along with the relationship to stigma about mental illness and its treatment. Everyone can do their part by speaking out and talking openly on these topics.
