Where does mental health fit into our society when will it become a political platform ?


Gun control, birth control health insurance for cancer and preventative physical ailment . Mental health is one area where very little is trained and very many suffer . When will society use technology like assay for depression during annual exams or better insurance coverage for child therapist and psychiatrist. It seems we treat mental illness as a criminal problem rather than a health problem and we leave very sick people suffering without proper mental health care because we don't even train first responders well . When will we understand the brain is an organ as well and people suffer
