Mental Health Advocate from Michigan

I love talking about health, and mental health is such an important aspect! Especially over the last month with health issues going on in my family, mental health support has been extremely important to get through these times.

Mental health insurance coverage is so important to cover the costs of mental health care. Due to gray areas in the law, insurance companies are allowed to deny people mental health care including cutting them off from services.

It is crucial to set clear standards for what insurance companies are supposed to cover and they need to prioritize people and their mental health and offer coverage that helps support mental health.

If you or someone you know needs help, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 988. Crisis Text Line also provides free, 24/7, confidential support via text message to people in crisis when they text HOME to 741741.
