President Trump Signs Mental Health Executive Order 

On Monday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order (EO) titled the ‘Executive Order on Saving Lives Through Increased Support For Mental- and Behavioral- Health Needs.’ The president signed this EO to curb the ongoing suicide crisis, opioid crisis and overall mental health crisis gripping the country. In recent months, due to the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic, these crises have grown worse. The EO establishes the ‘Coronavirus Mental Health Working Group’ with the goal of facilitating an all-of-government response to the mental health crisis.
