Award-winning journalist Roland Martin recently joined me to talk about a host of topics, including the future of health care in America.
During remarks by the President on common-sense gun safety reform, he proposed to invest $500 million to expand access to mental health treatment across the country.
“If we can continue to de-stigmatize mental health issues, get folks proper care, and fill gaps in the background check system, then we can spare more families the pain of losing a loved one to suicide,” said President Obama during his address.
As urgent as the issue of mental health is in America, Legislators on state levels have cut funding for mental health, and there has been much talk about the lack of addressing mental health by candidates in the current presidential election.
Take a listen below as Roland Martin shares his views on the future of health care in America, and what he feels should be done to ensure that Americans have access to the proper care. He also talked about his work on his multiple broadcasts: NewsOne Now and The Roland Martin Show.
