I want to talk about a superhero I know. She is a single mom with two jobs. Her 8 year old son is non verbal and has autism. He''s the light of her life, the reason she gets up in the morning and the reason she works around the clock. She has built a carefully constructed tower of cards to provide for her son and planning for their future. Here''s the sad twist: Gov. Gretchen Whitmer''s recent veto of $1 million in funding for the MiNavigator program has caused that tower to fall.This program helps mothers, like this superhero, and other caregivers across the state find resources to help people with autism thrive. Without this program, their future remains uncertain, unsupported, and scary.

For the longest time, mental illnesses never got the attention they deserved. It took celebrities such as Deepika Padukone and Ellen Degeneres to speak out about battling depression for the masses to understand how a mental illness can take a toll on a person s everyday life.

The film s protagonist is a man dealing with mental and neurological problems who eventually turns into a criminal.With all the attention that mental health is finally garnering, it became imperative for the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (Irdai) to work towards bringing mental illnesses within the scope of health insurance. Irdai recently released the guidelines on standardization of exclusions in health insurance contracts which states that treatment of mental illness, stress or psychological disorders will no longer be allowed as exclusions in health insurance policies. The Mental Healthcare Act, 2017, which was implemented last year directs every insurer offering health insurance products to cater to policyholders with mental illnesses the same way they cater to physical illnesses or injuries.
