Access to Mental Health Care

thumbnail_IMG_3512.jpg

On The Point, our behavioral health conversation this month is about recognizing when you need help, and how to find the supports you need. 

Our panel of mental health experts talk about the various disciplines, and barriers, in mental health care. State Senator Julian Cyr also joins us to talk about a mental health care reform bill that passed the Senate last week . The Mental Health A.B.C. Act proposes a more integrated system that includes parity and insurance reforms. 

Guests on the program are Dr. Marc Whaley, psychiatrist, Dr. Jonathan Schwartz, psychiatrist, and Anne Geagon, clinical psychologist. Mindy Todd hosts.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
