The Hill: Healthwatch: Elise Viebeck and Sam Baker: Advocates for Mental Health Have Momentum After Conn. Massacre

Advocates for mental health have momentum after Conn. massacre - The Hill's Healthwatch

This is something that should've been taken care of during the healthcare reform debate of 2009-10 that produced. The 2009-10 Affordable Care Act, this should've been part of that law that was finally passed and signed in 2010. By President Obama and maybe we could've avoided some of the strategies that have happened since. Because these shooters could've gotten the mental healthcare that they needed under their health insurance but hopefully this will be taken care of in 2013.
