The Kennedy Forum would like to share with you, two important articles published this month. The first article discusses a report regarding how expanded coverage was meant to create parity with benefits for physical ills, but despite the law, access is uneven. The second article that we found important to share with our readers is a personal story by Retired U.S. Army Gen. Peter Chiarelli who discusses his post traumatic stress disorder.

Just as President Kennedy rallied the nation to dream big and set audacious goals 50 years ago, The Kennedy Forum seeks to set a new standard for the future of health care in the United States.
Our mission is big, and the stakes are clear. We seek to unite the health care system, and rally the mental health community around a common set of principles: Fully implement the 2008 parity law, bring business leaders and government agencies together to eliminate issues of stigma, work with providers to guarantee equal access to care, ensure that policymakers have the tools they need to craft better policy, and give consumers a way to understand their rights.
