Shifting Public Awareness Of Mental Health Issues.
Many of the social issues in America right now can be seen as leading back to mental health issues. Throughout the decades, federal and state funding for mental health care and treatment has been on the decline. This lack of funding leads to people living in society when they really shouldn’t be.
Mental Health Reform is sorely needed, but what is needed more is raising public awareness that this is an issue that needs to be dealt with. The main stumbling block over the decades has been tax dollars. Society as a whole tends to balk at the hard issues like this.
Maybe the best approach to shifting that tide is to make people believe that this issue isn’t really that hard as long as the right people are at the helm. This type of change can happen both easily and soon.
