      As a american citizen it is our duty to provided any mental health individual with compassion and services which are needed. There is too many low income, homeless, SSI/SSDI individuals whoms Mental Health Treatment is bases by how much money the Insurances Companies are will ing to provide .The Insurance Companies and Higher up Govement Officials seem to dictated the recovery of Mental Heath due to the upper hand on poor and unfortunate people when they say it is based on money, rather than the due process it will take for a Mental Health person to recover. It is our duty to treat every individual bases on individual dianoses rather than grouping individual like compared to cattling cows for the slauter. Surley our Our Country have not lost sight how we must provide safe,compassionate, and a professional Healthy enviroment tor Mental Health Treatment. People Support and Recovery First, Rather Profit, and Budget Cuts due to saving money on the expense of Mental Health Individual.

      Mental health is extremely important especially in our society where there is so much pressure on people to be things they aren't. We have a sick culture, and until that's fixed mental and emotional health care is a necessity.
