Mental Health Advocate from Michigan

A man stands in front of lush plants with his eyes closed.

As someone in the process of acquiring health insurance & starting therapy soon, finding plans & coverage from insurance companies that prioritize mental health parity and set clear standards is very important to me.

Since the outbreak of the covid pandemic there has been more of a spotlight and focus on not only taking care of ourselves but also prioritizing our mental health & well-being. In a society of frequent discrimination where profit over people is rampant. Demanding mental health parity and equitable access to care that prioritizes people rather than insurance companies is so key!
