Value-Based Mental Healthcare - Journalists

Goals

To find journalists that have covered stories around value-based mental healthcare and the need for the mental healthcare system in the United States to be modernized and improved. Examples of coverage include racial or economic disparities in mental healthcare and how patients are unable to afford the needed support as a result of lack of insurance or partial reimbursement of healthcare costs by their insurance provider.
