Joe Kennedy continues his leadership on mental health care & substance use disorder treatment

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Joe Kennedy III unveiled a resolution calling on Congress to pursue universal behavioral health and addiction care and address the systemic inequities that plague our current health system. Building on his recent success strengthening behavioral health parity laws, Kennedy’s resolution outlines the disjointed federal response to the mental health and substance use disorder crisis, outlines the urgent policies needed to combat it, and demands an immediate, historic investment in the health system that focuses specifically on addressing behavioral health conditions.
