NJ Ends Discrimination of Behavioral Health!

Reading now: 775

As I sit down to write this post, I am bubbling over with excitement! This morning I was doing an errand at the hospital where I help out at times.

And as I was leaving a coworker mentioned: “The governor’s in the lobby.” Immediately, I knew what he was there for… He was there to sign NJ’s parity bill! This was actually something I’d been a part of for a few years & ultimately had to step away from when I started to have a recurrence of my depression 1 ½ years ago.

First, I was so excited for all my fellow coalition members who’d kept up the fight to see it get done. For some, they’d started the battle 7 years ago. Second, I was so excited for the residents in New Jersey who now, could not be discriminated against by their health insurance.
