Many of you heard about the White House Mental Health Conference but weren’t able to watch or listen to the event.


There is a lot of interest about what the Obama administration had to say about the state of our mental healthcare system and perceptions of mental illness in the United States.

Straight from the White House itself, I bring to you highlights of their press release on the Mental Health Conference:

Who’s in Charge?

The president is calling on Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Education Secretary Arne Duncan to launch the national conversation on mental health. Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki will also be involved.
