Episode Description:

This episode of Surviving Everyday interviews Pat Lawrence, a mental health advocate, where she discusses how she advanced mental health insurance coverage and understanding by "creating a level playing field". Her personal involvement with her daughters' mental illness, and the lack of resources she encountered (compared to physical illnesses) gave rise to her advocacy which resulted in a change in the Massachuetts' state laws concerning insurance coverage for mental illness. She also worked with law enforcement organizations to increase their understanding of encounters with the mentally ill, and how to best understand the mentally ill person's perspective.
