Are they entitled to the same health care?


Are they entitled to the same health care?

Too many people with mental illnesses have told me that they feel less entitled to health care than people suffering with diabetes, asthma or cancer, simply because the origin of their illness is in their brains. Insurance companies have been known to refuse to cover people with a mental illness at the same level as those with a physical illness.

I sincerely  hope that the next chapter in our civil rights movement will be to eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness.
