Medscape (10/8, Harrison) reports that 78 percent of US adults “support mandated mental health coverage in health plans,” according to the results of “a cross-sectional national poll” published in the October issue of the journal Psychiatric Services, a publication of the American Psychiatric Association. The poll, to which 2,124 people responded, also found that “support is stronger when substance abuse treatment is not explicitly included in that coverage.”
