Mental Health

Mental HealthA range of bipartisan legislation is under consideration to expand and improve mental health resources in this country, including to address substance abuse disorders. Like with telehealth, expansions and resources that were provided during the pandemic are set to end. Many Republicans and Democrats are considering legislation that would increase access, invest in making treatments more effective and more affordable for patients. There is particular interest in expanding and improving mental health care for veterans and for children, who were particularly impacted by the pandemic.
