CBS News This Morning Look at Mental Health - Accessing Treatment

CBS News This Morning focused a full show on the topic of mental health. Had a live audience, green ribbons and people asking questions.

We need more of this but we need doctors to recognize that there is a person behind the symptoms and that treatment can include a range of options. And questions need to be asked if that patient can afford or even get to the treatment site.

Not everyone drives or has decent mass transit.

If you want to see the full episode they have it on the CBS This Morning web site.
