According to Health Day News, easier access and coverage for pre-existing conditions should help those suffering from mental illness. " As the nation's health-care law continues to roll out, people with mental health issues are discovering ways that the landmark legislation directly affects them.

An estimated 32 million people will gain mental health or substance use disorder benefits, or both, as a result of the Affordable Care Act, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Much of this will stem from the requirement that small group and individual insurance plans offer coverage for mental health issues and substance abuse services. Most large insurance plans already include such coverage." read more
