Fixing America’s Mental Healthcare System

As state and federal budgets get tighter, spending on mental illness has dramatically fallen — contributing to significant gaps in America’s mental health safety net. Cash-strapped Medicaid programs bear a large part of the burden of caring for those with mental illness and these programs’ budget troubles are only expected grow.

 

On Thursday, February 26, The Hill will host a timely and thought-provoking conversation on the economic and human consequences of cost-cutting policies that limit access to treatment.
