Countering the Stigmatization of Mental Illness: Advancing Insurance Parity & Addressing Gaps in NY Mental Health Care

Tuesday, April 16, 7:30 - 9:00 PM
Mt. Sinai Beth Israel’s Phillips Ambulatory Care Center, 10 Union Square East @ E. 14th Street, 2nd Floor Auditorium, Manhattan

All PNHP-NY Metro forums are FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC and WHEELCHAIR-ACCESSIBLE

Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experiences mental illness in a given year. Whether it is anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or an eating disorder, those who suffer from mental illness often face stigma and struggle with feeling different. Many are unable to access quality, affordable and effective healthcare in a timely manner. While there has been a shift in the way mental health and mental illness are viewed in the United States, with a greater recognition of the need for mental health services, it is clear that private insurers continue to fail patients. Insurance companies continue to deny mental health benefits, and mental health treatment is often covered at lower levels than “physical illnesses.” This leaves many individuals in a state of chronic struggle or potentially life-threatening states. In this forum, we will hear from speakers who are leaders in the field of mental health and discuss mental health system gaps & reform in New York State, including under a single-payer system.
