Physician Group President Urges Congress to Take Action on Mental Health

Physician Group President Urges Congress to Take Action on Mental Health

American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) President Dr. Rebecca Parker publicly urged the Senate to approve the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act of 2016.

The legislation begins to address the inadequacies in the mental health system in the United States, she wrote in the Hill. Parker cites a recent poll conducted by ACEP, showcasing a growing shortage of inpatient beds available for emergency psychiatric patients.

The legislation serves as a way for Congress to reverse the trend of diverting resources away from inpatient and outpatient mental health care in the United States.
