Mental Health Reform is Law

 

On December 13, 2016, President Barack Obama signed mental health reform into law as part of H.R. 34, the 21st Century Cures Act, enabling thousands of Americans access to needed health care services.

In addition to improving program coordination across federal agencies, the act will also combat the issue of suicide, increase the mental health workforce and invest in early intervention so that people can get the right care at the right time.
