Ed Board Urges: “Confront Our Mental Health Crisis” Following Shooting in Colorado Springs
Contact: Murphy Press 202.225.2301
(Washington, D.C.) The Tampa Tribune calls on Congress to reach across party lines and advance Congressman Tim Murphy’s landmark Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act, H.R. 2646, in an editorial board endorsement published today. The editors write how the crisis mental health legislation will increase funding for brain research, promote tele-psychiatry and increase the number of psychiatric beds by modifying the antiquated “Institutions For Mental Diseases” exclusion in Medicaid, allowing for more patients to receive mental health treatment before a tragedy occurs.
