I believe that most drug abuse is a form of self-help by those who have mental
health issues and are unable to get proper treatment for their mental health
issues.I believe that most theft crimes are perpetrated by those
abusing drugs--who are resorting to drug abuse as a type of self-help for
treating mental health issues.Hopefully putting more money into
researching and treating mental health issues can reduce both drug abuse and
theft resorted to those abusing drugs, while getting better help to those
suffering with mental health issues.
It makes me wonder how much this guy has put in the pot? I don't have a lot
of trust in the way these people try to get money.......
Mental health is being created in the schools and no amount of money can stop
the nazi's programing and poisoning our children minds with Marxist
communist propaganda that goes against everything the United States stands for
by the meaning of freedom and free will and free choice is a right. There is no mental illness in our population, its all a hoax and propaganda
ploy because freedom and liberty are the opposite of what Communism is. Marxist
communist are calling freedom and free will a mental disorder contradicting
communist rules and communist government controls.And its all done
in the beginning of children's lives from cradle to the first 20 years of
their lives by the schools and communist board of education created by Obama for
this very reason.
Most Republications, during campaign times, talk of balancing the budget and
saving taxpayers their hard earned money. But, it isn't long before they
are at harking for $MILLIONS and MILLIONS, just like the Democrats. Yes, there
are many important causes, and this might be one of them. But, congressman,
there really is a limit to all the money that pours into federal vaults.
It's past time for you and the other elitists to show some fiscal
More funding for mental health care is laudable. But with the federal budget
deficit increased by the tax cut the Republicans came up with, there’s no
money left for things like that.
I applaud the "millions more" in funding for mental healthcare.Of course; that isn't even a drop in the bucket for what is needed;
unless or until we pass meaningful True Healthcare Reform.Mental
Health Care is second only to cancer treatment in cost. The cheapest therapists
charge $250 per hour (last I looked five years ago, probably more now). And
out-patient behavioral treatment is minimum one hour per week; while in-patient
treatment is 24/7.Keeping in mind that we are talking who can least
afford care or even insurance, 80% unemployment; and the rest are clearly
underpaid.At current prices; the US would need to spend literally in
the trillions of dollars annually if we were to even begin to address the mental
health problems our country faces.Of course, the government already
spends that and to spare on the current "war on drugs" in the form of
police and jail systems. If we decriminalized drug abuse and treated it as the
medical problem addiction really is; we would have funding and to spare (even at
the current level of price gouging).If we did that along with
passing meaningful Healthcare Reform to bring the costs down, our efforts would
go much further.

you'd demand they were seen by professionals.

"Access to suicide prevention resources is critical."It's so critical to Utah and its near highest in the nation suicide rate
that Rep. Stewart proudly crows about his > 40 votes to eliminate mental
#healthcare as an essential benefit of insurance. How does that help
his constituents?#NotUTValues #utpol #WordsAreCheap
Good for him.Mental health is so important and it should be on equal
footing of physical health.
I am TOTALLY and completely on board for MORE money going to mental health
care.My only concern with our spend,spend,spend congress is that
they reduce some spending to other programs (defense?)in order to compensate.
