Physician’s Weekly, along with Linda Girgis, MD, co-hosted the second installment of the #PWChat series focusing on the current status of mental healthcare in the United States. Check out our recap of PART I.

Topics discussed in the second half of our live, interactive chat included: how the public can be better educated on how to address emergency situations among patients with mental disorders, why some feel that mental illness is often treated as less important than physical illness and how that thinking can be changed, how to address patients who aren’t willing to accept that they might have a mental disorder, and much more!
