Mental health is in the news again, but only because of another mass shooting. Mental health is a problem even without the ease of access to guns.

Obamacare, to its credit, was a good first (albeit small) step in treating mental illness in the same way that we treat physical illness, at least as far as insurance is concerned. But that’s it.
What John Oliver says is worth your time, and he knows he’s only scratching the surface.
