Hey everybody! Want to have an interesting, relevant conversation about mental health in America right now? One interesting jumping-off point might be the conversation in the comments to this NYT blog post from mental health providers about why they don't accept insurance. I left a comment there myself about my own experiences as a patient navigating the wild and wonderful world of cash-only psychiatric care. Everything about mental health insurance is borked; we're still receiving bills from my hospital stays from fourteen months ago...! Getting prior approval for ANYTHING is also obscenely difficult.

Here's a good blog post from the excellent Shrink Rap about why most people with mental illness aren't violent (we don't usually have all of the risk factors).

Another post from Shrink Rap that's really worth reading: Please Don't Make Assumptions.
