Sign the petitions and join the mental health revolution.
I’m one mom who’s looking to start a revolution. I'm willing to share our story with the hope that you will join us.
We learned in this country that separate is NEVER equal and yet we allow insurance companies to offer health care plans that do not cover mental health and substance use disorders. Mental illness and substance use disorders are medical conditions. Both have the potential to leading to death.
• Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in this nation and the 3rd leading cause for people aged 15 to 24 years.
• 1 in 4 adults experiences mental illness each year.
• 1 in 5 adolescents aged 13 to 18 suffer from severe mental disorders in a given year.
• 1 in 10 children and adolescents aged 8 to 15 suffer from severe mental disorders
(statistics from the National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Mental Health, 2012)
There is a mental health crisis in this country. Demand that insurance companies treat mental health conditions EQUALLY to physical medical conditions.
