More Advocacy for Enforcement Of The Mental Health Parity And Addiction Equity Act

Medscape (5/18, Anderson) reports that at the American Psychiatric Association’s annual meeting, former Democratic Rhode Island congressman Patrick Kennedy, “who helped spearhead the national battle to end discrimination against mental illness,” called for more advocacy to ensure enforcement of the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act that was passed in 2008. Kennedy “said, ‘We have the promise of parity, but in order to make it a reality, we really need to put together a political movement.’” Kennedy then “urged the audience to ‘take on this issue from a place of personal commitment.’”
