The National Alliance of Practicing Psychologists recently released a "White Paper"entitled "Failure to Serve" regarding how to go about correcting the crisis in mental health that is evident to everyone who watches the news. Almost every day there is some fresh report of a teenage suicide, school shooting, suicidal airline pilot or other tragedy that demonstrates our nation's failure to address behavioral health problems. This report tells how we SAVE money by providing BETTER quality health care! Unfortunately Healthcare Reform has not addressed any of these issues which are the real problems that need to be addressed in our country. If you would like to forward this report to your elected representatives you may do so.
