Mental Health Matters: Why we continue to fail
Tomorrow I will be speaking with Mental Health Matters (NAMI-related) radio show with Hunterdon Chamber Radio in New Jersey. Larry Cartright, the host of the show, invited me to speak on his show December 2 about my new book Mental Health In A Failed American System and issues of importance to parents, families, and caregivers within the mental health system. I accepted the invitation with gratitude and am very happy to draw greater attention to our failed mental health system. If you are interested in listening in tomorrow at 2:00pm, visit http://www.hunterdonchamberradio.com/nami.htm.
There are 3 very major failures that I focus intently on within our system:
- Business supersedes compassion and common sense
- Parents, families, and caregivers are perpetually ignored and devalued
- Our state laws are contradictory and quite pitiful to say the least
Tune in tomorrow and share, what we hope to be an informative discussion, with someone who may benefit.
All the best
