Putting the brain back into the body

Congress has done the brave thing and relocated the brain where it is best suited to be: inside the body.

An end to discriminating against brain problems in healthcare:
Economic bill includes mental health treatment provision. No more higher co-pays if the problem is higher than the neck. No more neck pains from reading the fine print to figure out how your mental health 'benefits' differ from your other health concerns.
There are many to thank, but I am deeply grateful to the Eating Disorders Coalition for representing ALL of us in the eating disorder community in this very important fight. This is bigger than eating disorders (in fact, insurance companies can still pick and choose which mental disorders to cover), it effects all of society.

This is a wonderful first step, a long-fought one, in improving both treatment and society's understanding of brain function.
