  • Four factors that predict gun violence—substance use is one of them

  • NAMI: state lawmakers only tinker with policy improvement
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: At the two year anniversary of the Newtown tragedy, policy momentum has slowed, and NAMI is concerned about the overall trend in access to care.

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the health policy momentum that emerged in the wake of the tragedy has already slowed.

However, 36 states and the District of Columbia began to restore funding in 2013 as a result of heightened public awareness of mental health needs. read more
