Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar has released a plan to spend $100 billion over a decade to improve mental health care and fight substance abuse. It’s an issue the Minnesota senator has faced as the daughter of an alcoholic who struggled with addiction for years before getting sober. The plan unveiled Friday includes funding for early intervention of mental health disorders and drug use, a national suicide prevention campaign and better access to opioid addiction treatment.
