Vice President Kamala Harris Discusses Mental Health

Vice President Kamala Harris is calling for more mental health services.  Harris spent this afternoon at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., paying tribute to the country’s health care workers and spotlighting mental health in the industry.   Harris explained, “I think for too long when we think about health care, we act as though the body just starts from the neck down instead of understanding we also need to address health care from the neck up — mental health. So, if you are struggling, please know you are not alone, that you are seen and that you deserve to receive the help you desire and the help you need.” The speech comes in the middle of Mental Health Awareness Month.   Do you think high-school students should have to take a class on mental health?
