Today, we know a lot more about mental illness than we did forty years ago. But given the grueling and brutal demands of modern campaigning, we would be extremely unlikely to embrace a presidential candidate who acknowledged taking drugs for a psychiatric condition.
A psychiatrist prescribing medications that supposedly work, cause little or no harm, and are scientifically proven to meet at least these aforementioned three criteria, couldn't be further from simple.
By creating an incentive for patients to stay healthy, it may be possible to avoid ER visits, eliminate surgeries, cut down or avoid hospitalizations and maybe eliminate some of the unnecessary trips to the doctor.
I understand the need to cut costs, but in my opinion, some insurance companies are practicing health care without a license. They have none of the liability and yet are part of the decision-making? What's up with that?
