According to MSN.com, mental disorders are the 8th costliest “disease” in the United States……hmmmmmm Is this an issue? Absolutely. As a person who is suffering from a diagnosis of anxiety and depression, I know just how costly it is. Weekly therapy sessions, psychiatric exams, doctor visits, sleep studies, medications, etc. Let’s not even mention how most insurances do not cover mental health costs, or limit the coverage of this area. Should this issue be taken more seriously? Absolutely.
