A new survey found 71 percent of Americans believe the country’s policy regarding mental health is in need of significant, radical change.
The results of the survey were in tandem with the announcement of the formation of the Kennedy Center for Mental Health and Research. Spearheaded by former U.S. Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy and former Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher, the center will focus on “highlighting, expanding, and promoting best practices in mental health and addiction treatment and policy.” And it will be housed within the Satcher Health Leadership Institute at the Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) in Atlanta, Ga.
