Julie Morrison

SPRINGFIELD – A lifelong advocate of giving people with behavioral health conditions the same opportunities as others, State Senator Julie Morrison (D-Lake Forest) was appointed to the Task Force on Disability Income Insurance and Parity for Behavioral Health Conditions.


“People who struggle with mental and behavioral health conditions deserve equal treatment,” Morrison said. “It is vital to find solutions to ensure people with such conditions receive the care and coverage they need.”

Morrison was appointed to the committee this week by Senate President Don Harmon (D-Oak Park). She will join other elected officials, as well as experts in the behavioral health field and consumers of disability income insurance who have experienced a behavioral health condition to review existing plans and policies for individual and group short-term and long-term disability income insurance.

Following a year of research and conversation, Morrison and the group will provide recommendations on the cost effectiveness of requiring individual and group disability income insurance to cover behavioral health conditions.

“Working together, the task force will be able to find concrete solutions to better serve the thousands of men and women who struggle each day with little to no support,” Morrison said. “I am thankful to the president for his trust in me to represent the Senate majority.”
