STIGMA & INCLUSION: Toward a New Understanding of Mental Illness

In this informative TED Talk, Thomas Insel provides insight into the new understandings of mental Illness by comparing the deaths of many common illnesses such as stoke, heart disease, AIDS, and leukemia to the deaths caused by mental illness. If the ways we approach these chronic health diseases are through prevention and early intervention, then why is there not more of a push to treat mental illness this way?
