A new mental health care study by the California HealthCare Foundation finds that serious mental illness shows up at much higher rates among lower-income children and adults in California than other income brackets. We'll discuss the report and what it can tell us about the prevalence of disease, access to care, and more.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Neal Adams, deputy director of the California Institute for Mental Health; and the author of the California Healthcare Foundation report, "Mental Health Care in California: Painting a Picture"
  • Sandra Shewry, director for state health policy at the California HealthCare Foundation
