In March 2016, as part of wider Administration efforts to expand access to treatment for people with mental health and substance use disorders, President Obama authorized creation of the Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Parity Task Force. The Task Force will focus key Federal agencies on the work of ensuring that Americans receive the coverage and treatment that they need.  More information on the task force can be found here.   

The Task Force wants to hear from patients, families, consumer advocates, health care providers, insurers, and other stakeholders on their experiences and/or difficulties with accessing mental health and substance use services and coverage.  Share your comments, experiences, and recommendations with the Task Force. Or, submit your comments by sending an email to parity@hhs.gov.  The Task Force will present its findings and recommendations in a report to the President by October 31, 2016.
