Mental Health has been a growing issue in the United States. The problematic area is the funding and the lack of prioritization of this issue. More and more people are experiencing issues with their mental health and need help. It is hard to get that help in America. It can be expensive to get the professional help, it is not provided much for in our health care insurance, there is not much education about mental health, and there are stigmas revolving around mental health. Especially today, in the mist of Covid-19, mental illness is rising and so is the mental health crisis. An increasing in funding can provided care to those who do not have access to it and make it easier for them. It can encourage policies like having a professional mental health care worker come with officers when doing a check up when they get a call. It can help open more facilities and provide more professional help.
