Top Five changes we Need - and More
#1 Reclassify SMI (Serious Mental Illness) as a physical/medical, not behavioral condition - we need to fund more research : and Why is there no cure for SZ?
#2 - HIPAA (discussed in more detail in Episode 4)
#3 - Repeal the IMD Exclusion (would make more hospital beds available for SMI)
#4 - Full Continuum of Care
#5 - Decriminalize SMI
Also : Early signs? Early Detection.
