Abstract

Rural communities are significantly impacted by mental health and substance use disorders. Reform is needed to solve these issues. The Biden Administration’s Public Option and Representatives Pramila Jayapal and Debbie Dingell's Medicare for All Act of 2021 aim to improve the United State’s health care system. While each of these pieces of legislation are steps in the right direction, additional investment is needed in mental health infrastructure in order to make meaningful improvements in rural communities.
