6-7-10: What Health Care Reform Means for Mental Health

June 6, 2010 at 11:14 am Leave a comment

Does health care reform mark a turning point in how America deals with mental health?

Sheilah asks Washington Post associate editor Steve Luxenberg, who edited the mental health section of the Post‘s book Landmark: The Inside Story of America’s New Health Care Law and What It Means for Us All.

Steve has a unique perspective on mental health. In 1995, he found out his mother had been hiding the existence of a sister, and after years of reporting, he unraveled the rest of the story, including his aunt’s three decades in a psychiatric institution. Last year, Steve published Annie’s Ghosts: A Journey into a Family Secret, and in the course of researching his family’s story, he learned the story of America’s ever-changing stance on mental health.
