3. Make Mental Health Treatment Affordable and Accessible. The good news is that we have made remarkable progress in developing research-backed psychological interventions that work to treat chronic and serious mental illnesses, ranging from depression and anxiety to substance abuse and psychosis.
4. Support and Fund Mental Health Research. If we want to offer the most effective mental health treatments, we need cutting-edge research to test those treatments and understand how they work.
