Digital Extra: Navigating the mental health system

Focused On Health

Homelessness, an overcrowded jail system, people who are unable to find a place to detox or who leave a facility with nowhere to go. These are just a few of the issues mental health professionals deal with every single day.

Oftentimes clinics have to advocate for more time for treatment on behalf of their patients. They help navigate the often confusing roadblocks presented by insurance or more importantly, a lack of coverage.

WJTV 12’s ‘Focused on Mental Health’ brings you this digital extra with Stewpot Executive Director Jill Buckley and a Bridge to Recovery’s Kostas Matheos about the things the grapple with daily and ways to help support someone you love in treatment.
