Baker Welcomes Kennedy for Discussion on Mental Health and Addiction

As chairman of the House Health Committee, Rep. Matt Baker welcomed former Congressman Patrick Kennedy (pictured), son of the late Edward Kennedy, to the Capitol where he gave a presentation during an informational meeting about mental illness and substance abuse. 

During his appearance, Kennedy spoke about the unique position states are in with respect to advancing policies to help those with mental illness and substance abuse, since action on the federal level can take much longer. 

In addition, he focused much of his testimony on making sure that states enforce mental health parity laws to ensure that health insurance covers treatment, which can be highly effective.
