May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

We all know that the past year and a half has not been easy. Especially true for the rare and chronic disease communities.

On Wednesday, we talked to Ashley Bykerk, Health Legislative Assistant to Senator Amy Klobuchar. Sen. Klobuchar recently introduced a bill in the Senate titled, “Covid-19 Mental Health Research Act” which we discussed.

I also had Andrew Sperling, the Director of Legislative Affairs for the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Andrew spoke about other legislation going on to ensure those affected by Mental Illness are being heard.
