Mental Health

Mental health is one of our hallmark specialties. We understand the science of mental illness and its treatment, the sensitivities of consumers and family, policy issues of access and disability, the history of stigma, and the recent public educational efforts to overcome it.  We understand where public health and advocacy have been, the strides made, and the needs yet unmet. We’ve worked on many of the policy issues aimed at improving access to care and services for behavioral healthcare.
