Health Care Legislation & Mental Health

Without proper health care, the inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are gradually eroded. The American Psychological Association is actively at work in the health care reform legislation that is now in Congress. APA’s efforts in advocating for quality health care have focused on the mind-body connection in health and mental health disorders.

For information on the status of the proposed health care legislation and mental health initiatives go to http://www.apa.org/health-reform/
