Seattle Times columnist Jonathan Martin began his Rosalynn Carter Fellowship for Mental Health Journalism in September 2013 and planned to cover the Affordable Care Act. He was one of six U.S. and four international journalists selected for the annual program.
Over the course of his fellowship year, through dozens of articles, blog posts, and columns, Martin not only looked at how the Affordable Care Act implementation was affecting mental health care in Washington state, but also addressed parity and denial of care. In addition, he followed a lawsuit related to mental health care sparked by a column he wrote and eventually appealed to the Washington state Supreme Court.
