I find it very hard to write this commentary without being redundant, because so much of what Dr. Upton has written expresses and supports my views on the philosophical issues surrounding the financing of mental health care. Since this is the case, perhaps my best contribution to the usefulness of Dr. Upton’s white paper would be to highlight, reemphasize, and editorialize upon the crucial points. One hopes that Dr. Upton’s paper and the commentaries in this book will undergird the work of those who will be formulating policy on mental health care coverage under National Health Insurance.
