This article is a nice follow up to the post I made a few days ago entitled “Who Needs Therapy?” It expounds upon the notion of involuntary therapy by shining a light on the reality that is the mental health care system in the United States. What is really nice about this article is that it walks you through how the current state of mental health care in the US directly affects individuals and family life while illustrating larger systemic ideas and realities.
“There really is no mental health system in the US.”
“A system requires a vision. What we have is a shapeless void.”
