Panel deliberates access to mental health care

“Mental health issues are often very complicated,” stated panel member Senator Dan Schmidt, M.D., Moscow. “Building networks in this state has been a challenge. Mental health providers do not see Idaho as an attractive state for a thriving practice. Psychiatric support is very slim. Family doctors do their best. Whose obligation is it to provide these services to our residents? What serves Boise does not necessarily serve Grangeville.”
