On Nov. 3, 2020, we’ll head to the polls to vote for the national, state, and local candidates that best represent our values. There are many important issues to consider, including climate change, a fledgling economy, and healthcare. The latter includes access to treatment for mental illness, and while you don’t often hear it mentioned on the debate stage, it’s important to know where candidates stand on policies tied to mental health, if this issue is important to you.
Most candidates have a great deal of information about their policies and proposals on their websites, so start by checking there. If any of the issues ahead are conspicuously absent from their healthcare plans, contact your representatives to ask them where they stand and if they’re willing to commit to supporting policies that could save lives.
