Since the Senate healthcare reform bill was released late last week, there's

been tons of conversation around what's in the darn thing. Among the rotten

provisions in the current iteration of Trumpcare - and there are many -

arguably the least discussed are those affecting individuals with mental

illness.

 

Mental illness is an extraordinarily broad category, by the way; it includes

everything from anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders,

ADHD, schizophrenia and more. To escape the bill's clinical, impersonal

language and get to the point: Folks living with mental illness are about to

get completely screwed.
