Last week, Pat Toomey gave the weekly Republican address.
This week, it’s Congressman Tim Murphy.
“As a practicing psychologist, I have seen firsthand how difficult it is for families to navigate our broken mental health system,” Murphy stated. “Outdated laws prevent the families and caregivers from being a part of the treatment teamtoo often this has fatal consequences. We need treatment before tragedy, and care before crisis.”
“With this new law, we are finally breaking down the wall between physical health and mental health,” he continued. “Now federal agencies will be moving from vague feel-good programs to ones that emphasize evidence-based care for those at the highest risk.”
