Mental Health – March 23, 2011

FRANCESCA FRANCHINA, MS Ed.  speaks with Dr. Sylvia Gleason, DO,  about mental health care in the  hospital emergency room; mental health viewed as a “Non-Disease,”  the lack of adequate insurance coverage and facilities for mental health patients,   prescription drugs reaching epidemic proportions; the  demand for prescription drugs fueled by  advertising leading to the demand for harder drugs such as  heroin;  the death toll of drug abuse; its  cost in dollars and personhood; and what can be done about all of these issues regarding  mental health and drug abuse  in general.
