November Justice Action

Our justice action November offers education on how mental illness and violence intersect, particularly in the lives of women.

Mental Health and Violence Against Women

In keeping with the International Presentation Association (IPA) focus on Eliminating Violence Against Women and Children, this month we continue our series on how mental illness and violence intersect, particularly in the lives of women. We invite you to continue to be faithful in your response to these opportunities.

SEE:

REFLECT:

  • Consider the person with no insurance or Medicaid and their limited or non-existent access to mental health care. Every other developed country gives access to mental health treatment through their health care systems and coverage, which include universal health care.

ACT NOW:

  • Advocate for mental health coverage to be on an equal footing with physical health coverage in insurance. Further info available here. Advocate for universal health care for all, regardless of employment or immigration status. Here is the vision the American Medical Association (AMA) has regarding health care reform.
