Much of the population names mental illness as the root cause for the horrendous number of mass shootings in this country. I don’t want to turn this into an adversarial blog, but it occurs to me that many of the people advocating mental health reform are some of the same people who don’t want to do what’s necessary to fix our broken health system.
Mental health is a part of health care — or at least it should be. If we see the number of uninsured in this country rise again, some who need mental health care will be unable to get it.
Does anyone else see this disconnect?
