Trump pick for mental health agency doesn't fit his pattern

This news story surprised me for two reasons. One being the news itself. The other being that the CBC is normally more subtle in its criticism of world leaders in an article not labelled as an op-ed. They are normally very careful about that.

Psychiatrist Elinore McCance-Katz is an academic expert on addiction with extensive government experience

U.S. President Donald Trump's pick to marshal the government's response to the opioid epidemic and assist people with mental illness doesn't quite fit the mould of some of his other nominees.

Psychiatrist Elinore McCance-Katz isn't an outsider bent on disrupting the system.

Instead, she's an academic expert on addiction with extensive state government and federal experience, and a reputation for relying on science. She spent time at the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Services Administration (SAMHSA), the agency she has been nominated to lead.

The strongest opposition to her nomination isn't coming from Democrats and advocacy groups, but from a Republican who says she's been part of the problem.

McCance-Katz, 60, now serves as chief medical officer for the Rhode Island agency responsible for substance abuse and mental health services. She was on a task force that produced a nationally recognized opioid action plan for the state.

As they say, even a bliind squirrel occasionally finds a nut. Given his general mental state, which I see as unstable and erratic, I suspect mental health is near and dear to tRump's heart.
