Secretary Michael O. Leavitt

Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D-MD)
Representative Chris Van Hollen Jr. (D-MD 8th)
Thank you for supporting this bill. I happen to not like the continued methods of mental health treatment using drugs and therapy to band-aid mental illness instead of helping the patient to become independently healthy. However, considering the number of health problems which are not covered by insurance because they are caused by mental health problems, and considering the cost of treatment, and the many ramifications of untreated mental health problems which this country is currently facing, I support the Mental Health and Addiction Equality Act.
