Buttigieg Policy: Mental Health Care and Combat Addiction
“This crisis of pain and despair is not one unique to whiteness; it is one that is distinctly American.”
Pete released a plan to take on mental health care and combat addiction. The plan focuses on deaths of despair, as well as people and communities being left behind in the discussion of mental health care.
“Our health care system is so broken—and our approach to mental health and addiction care so fragmented and often punitive—that less than one in five people with a substance use disorder and two of every five people with a mental illness receive treatment.”
