Insurance parity on mental illness
Insurance coverage is odd. It seems have trouble locating the brain. They must think brains are inaccessible, mystical creatures located far, far away.... perhaps on Mars?
The brain has actually been located - take notes here - atop the spine, right inside the skull. It is part of the body and deserves medical attention. Just because we aren't very good at it doesn't mean we oughtn't try.
It'd be great if insurance agencies could just get this on their own, but the Mental Health Parity Act of 2007 is a good start. After 15 years of trying, and over the time we actually got spacecraft to Mars, perhaps we're ready to make the leap to the inner reaches of inter-cranial space!
