Re: HOW TO DEAL WITH THE MENTALLY ILL IN A FREE SOCIETY?

I absolutely agree.

Which is why I made this thread, wondering if anyone out there has any solutions I havn't heard or thought of yet.

Because like I said, every solution I hear infringes on our rights.
 Quoting: *HEISENBERG*


The answer may lie in empowering families. Right now it is hard to get the help a mentally ill family member needs. The best and least affordable option is a 1 on 1 caregiver.

A more affordable option could be therapeutic group homes. When and how a person is placed in one is up to the family not the gov't (and requires so many family members to agree to commit). Not perfect, but heck of a lot better than jail or the streets which is where most of these folks end up.

Before people have a fit - remember nursing homes are the same thing. People are typically there because they have a condition too overwhelming for the families to handle.

That's an immediate fix, but long term we need to have a serious discussion of societal breakdown, bad medications and more.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33876950


I think you are spot on with the short term fix.

The power should all be with the family. Government should stay out of it. It can be very hard for a family to get the help they require, how can we make that easier?

Maybe instead of federal funded programs, we could put that money at the local level?
 Quoting: *HEISENBERG*


Well, the expense of just a few "urgent care" mental hospital stays for a patient could probably pay for a group home for that same person for a year.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33876950


Very true. Good call.

The psychiatric pharmaceutical industry is just not there to "heal" anyone, just keep people "mentally ill" by labeling them. It is there to shut people up and scapegoat them for the ills of the world.

Truth telling, on the other hand, is a healing force. There are real demons and spiritual demons in our world and in our lives, and they manifest in broken psyches and soul loss. Personal, Political, Spiritual truth...

I've stuggled with this myself, but I am certain of one thing. This is not a question that will be answered best by the Federal government. Unfortunately that is the compromise we will see. It will probably be an Obamacare sytle panel to determine ones mental stabilty. Worse yet, I believe HIPPA will be thrown out in regards to mental health, so if a doctor thinks you are mentally unstable, they can feel free to alert the authorities.

In Connecticut, they are trying to mandate mental health screenings for public and home school children (i guess children in private schools would not be screened?):

This is horrific stuff. These labels are so arbitrary. You can look into the history of the DSM to learn about that!

Re: HOW TO DEAL WITH THE MENTALLY ILL IN A FREE SOCIETY?
My opinion is that the suspected mental case should have to have demonstrated irrationally violent/deadly behavior before any action is taken to deny them their right to keep and bare arms. Otherwise you're getting into "pre-crime" territory.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

In my opinion, I think we should stop trying to figure out solutions for every single perceived problem that crosses our path. Life is dangerous. What happened to that ancient knowledge?

If we keep it up, we're going to become very lazy humans.

As if it's not bad enough already.

Can you imagine the pile of rules and new laws that are going to be plaguing us in ten or twenty years if we keep this up?

ugh

Well, if you apply the same principle of innocent before proven guilty it doesn't have to be that complicated. This is however, why principles aren't always easy to have. In America, we chose a long time ago to risk that some bad guys would go free rather than wrongly punishing one innocent one. I'm not saying that nut cases are neccesarily bad guys. They can't help it, but to live in a truely free society, you have to accept that bad things are going to happen sometimes. You have to be free enough to commit the crime before you are arrested for it. That's why cops mostly just respond to crime that has already happened.

We have made it complicated with phycho meds. It would be prudent and responsible to be very careful about psycho meds and the people who are on them. The meds are just as bad or worse than the alleged mental disorders they are supposed to treat. We over prescribe meds that affect different people differently and to treat people who should simply be taught how to deal with their own situations. Those meds would calm one person and excite another. All that needs to change for the switch to flip could simply be diet or stress and boom, you've got a drugged out killer.

Re: HOW TO DEAL WITH THE MENTALLY ILL IN A FREE SOCIETY?
So lately there has been a lot of talk because of the recent shootings about the mentally ill and the mentally ill having access to firearms.

I have heard many pundits, many glpers, many everyday people talking about this, yet no one really has any solutions.

I make this thread under the assumption we all or at least most of us wish to live in a free society. With that said, how in a free society do we prevent or lower the chances of a mentally ill person obtaining a firearm? We can't go around involuntarily committing people we "suspect" may be mentally unstable.

Plus it starts to get shaky when we try and define mentally unstable and who should define this? Plus the meds we give the mentally ill generally have negative psychological effects. Potentially making a bad situation worse.

Is there a way to tackle this problem without violating peoples civil rights? Without doping everyone we suspect to be mentally ill into a drug induced coma? Also without restricting gun rights?

What do you all think?

it is myth. Energy is simply rebelling to being manipulated by synthetic frequencies... Mind and body split and neither one listens to the other.

Disinfo, fear porn and synthetics are what keeps this going. It is all about selling a product because they know what is in store for man and refuse to let go... IT will happen regardless. But you have to think better thoughts about this concept. Everybody is living in a delusion of some sort... Yours is no better... Man's tools have become his masters because he stopped putting in the work and is reaping what he has sown...
