“We need a Mental Health law that works on prevention”

(CNN Radio Argentina) – Stella MaurigSocio-Therapeutic operator in Addictions, assured this Friday in CNN Radio that “in Argentina we do not have a mental health law specific to addictions and that is what we urgently need”.

Stella Maurig, who has spent years fighting for a specific law to address the problem of addictions, explained in Los Primeros de la Tarde, with Pepe Gil Vidal: “We need something specific because kids are dying every day. You have to see reality. The deputies and senators have to listen to us. You have to make a section for addictions. This no longer works”.

“There is great pain for families who have their loved ones hospitalized”, he added, and recalled his story: “A few years ago I started this claim when my son who was addicted died. I went out to ask for a law, I was in the Senate on July 4 speaking and I am elbow to elbow with people who are committed.

In this order, Maurig considered: “We need an integrating law so that prevention works from an early age. You have to teach the consequences that consumption brings.”
