We have a mental health and addiction crisis in America, and it impacts everyone. We can see it in poor test scores and alarming school dropout rates, overflowing jails and chronic homelessness, and skyrocketing health care costs and workplace absenteeism. Every day, 44 Americans lose their lives to an opioid overdose, 35 babies are born opioid‐dependent, and 112 Americans complete suicide, including 22 veterans. Our system is broken. The time for action is NOW.
