Patricia Dowds, PhD
Dr. Dowds has been a practicing psychotherapist since 1973. She is currently a faculty member and partner at The Minuchin Center for the Family, NYC., Co- Director of The Family Therapy Institute Of Suffolk, Smithtown NY, on the Steering Committee of U2K and on the Board of The Suffolk County Psychological Association. For many years Dr. Dowds served on the Board of the National Coalition and most recently was our vice-president.
Dr. Dowds says that she had hoped to be primarily teaching and doing research at this point in her career. Instead that is second place to the work of fighting to protect mental health benefits for families. She believes there will be a major move for universal health care in this country in the next few years, and is working to insure that those involved are mindful of the requirements for good mental health treatment.

"When you talk about universal health care, many professionals want to know how you would enact it," says Pat Dowds, psychologist and board member of the National Coalition of Mental Health Professionals and Consumers."We¹re telling our members U2K is working to ensure that professionals will be at the table when policy solutions are discussed."The Coalition organized Rescue Health Care Day on April 1, a national day of action that held events in over 30 cities calling for a nationwide debate over alternatives to for-profit managed care.As Dowds noted, mental health professionals often ask: Or do you support mental health parity?¹ One way to involve health care professionals in the movement for universal health care is to address their concerns ­ such as the need for comprehensive mental health care and medical privacy ­ and point this out as an example of the need for comprehensive universal health care.
Another way to involve professionals in the movement for universal health care is to share their stories of struggling to provide comprehensive, affordable, quality, accessible and publicly accountable care in a health care system in crisis.
