The Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act

peopleWhat do you know about H.R. 2646 the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act of 2015? According to an article in Mental Health America, the Murphy-Johnson legislation “is an important start to making comprehensive mental health reform a reality in America.” and “is a critical step forward toward treating mental illnesses like we treat every other chronic disease.”

This sounds good; however, there is a lot of controversy and some opposition surrounding the bill. In a web cast and article in Medscape, Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman of Columbia University notes that the bill, “would enhance the assurance that services provided in the public sector, services that receive support from the federal government largely through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), would need to be scientifically driven and evidence-based.”

Read what the National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery has to say about H.R. 2646. Also, Scott Bryant-Comstock President and CEO of Children's Mental Health Network wrote a comprehensive article that analyzes this pending legislation. Please research and learn for yourself how this important bill, if passed, would affect our behavioral health industry.
