There is no health care without mental health care. Yet, too often, health insurance covers mental health care differently than other kinds of medical services, creating barriers to affordable, accessible mental health care and reinforcing a stigma around mental illness and seeking mental health treatment. That’s why parity — covering mental health and addiction care at the same level as other health care — has been a priority issue throughout NAMI’s history. Despite several major laws, the promise of true parity has not been achieved, and many people with mental illness are still being denied the care that they need and deserve. We can change this for people affected by mental illness in our community, but we need YOUR help to make a difference. Join us on March 27 at 10 am via Zoom for a NAMI Smarts for Advocacy workshop, Parity: Fairness in Health Coverage, to learn more about the different parity laws, how you can spot parity violation and what steps you can take to report it and improve mental health coverage in Mississippi.
