Maggie Hassan on Health Care

 


Repair our mental health system; take pressure off ERs

Each of us knows of someone, a friend, a family member, a neighbor who has suffered from mental illness. Right now, many children who are suicidal are stuck for days in emergency rooms because there is nowhere else for them to go.

We can all agree that our mental health system is deeply strained. And though we won't fix all of our challenges at once, it is time to resume our efforts to repair our mental health system. We must phase in changes with a systematic approach that will strengthen all aspects of mental health care in our state and move us toward more community-based care.

And that is what this budget does. Over the next two years, it will add a new designated receiving facility to take the pressure off local emergency rooms and provide more appropriate critical treatment environments. It will add new acute psychiatric residential treatment beds, in addition to the beds at the state hospital. And it will focus on treating people in their communities, with 75 new community residence beds

ObamaCare helps working families afford health insurance

As a State Senator, Maggie worked hard to make quality, affordable health care a reality for every Granite Stater. In the legislature, Maggie:Affordable Care Act: As governor, Maggie will bring the same priorities of lowering costs and expanding coverage back to Concord. Maggie believes we should accept $1 billion in available federal funding to help working families afford health insurance, and will work to make sure the state is protected financially into the future.
