Abstract

This week, Hillary Clinton announced a new agenda for mental health if she wins the White House in November, which would increase funding and would create parity of mental health services within the US healthcare system. Elizabeth Cotton writes that while Clinton’s new policy has promise, it does not address how mental health services are delivered, and by who. Not only is the agenda over reliant on short term behavioral interventions, but the precariousness of work in the US, combined with the private healthcare system, raises questions for those who might seek treatment and provide it under it.
