Location: Indiana, United States

I became a Professor Emeritus after serving 29 years as a recreational therapy faculty member at Indiana University. I'm a long-time Hoosier, having grown up in Hanover, Indiana. My RT practitioner work was in psych/mental health. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, my first faculty position was at the University of North Texas. RT has been a wonderful profession for me as I have had the opportunity to serve as an author and national leader.

Mental Health Parity Bill Passes

Mental Health America recently announced: Senate Passes Mental Health Parity

The US Senate by a unanimous vote has passed the Mental Health Parity Act of 2007 (S. 558). This critical legislation will ensure that Americans with employer-sponsored health insurance and their families receive mental health care coverage at the same level as coverage for general health problems.

The American Therapeutic Recreation Association (ATRA) has advocated for this legislation in recent years.
