The regulations would require that games with annual receipts of less than 500 thousand dollars give seven percent of their proceeds to charities over a three year period.
Games that take in more than 500 thousand dollars would have to give an average of ten percent.

But for many of the millions more battling mental illness and their families, the situation has not come full circle. In fact many avoid even diagnosis which prevents treatment.
