Roy Blunt, United States Senator for Missouri Dear Unity, Today marks World Mental Health Day. Approximately one in four [link 1] adults suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder each year across America. It's so important that we work to remove the stigma associated with behavioral health treatment and start treating mental health illnesses like physical health. As part of National Mental Health Month this May, I visited [link 2] nine facilities across Missouri to learn more from our health care professionals and community leaders about the ways that we treat mental health challenges. I introduced the "Caring for America's Heroes Act [link 3]," to bring mental health treatment in-line with the way physical injuries are treated under TRICARE. I also worked with Senator Stabenow to successfully pass [link 4] a version of the bipartisan "Excellence in Mental Health Act [link 5]," which will expand access to community mental health services and strengthen the quality of care provided to those living with mental illness. Please visit my website to find out more about my efforts to improve behavioral health treatment. [image =] [link 6] This is a critical issue, and I'll keep fighting to ensure everyone - including our veterans, active duty military, and families - has access to timely, quality care. I hope you'll join this important discussion online by sharing your thoughts on my Facebook [link 7] page, on Twitter [link 8], Instagram [link 9], and on YouTube [link 10].
