WOW. Loss of Psychiatric Hospitals could be CAUSING WIDESPREAD MENTAL ILLNESS - READ THE INFO
A couple of the facts:

In 1880, the % of population requiring psychiatric help was at .7%

In 2005, the % of population requiring psychiatric help was at 21%. (crazy increase, so to speak)


In 2010, there were ONLY 14 psychiatric beds available for every 10,000 patients. This is because institutions have been shutting down at a rapid rate, forcing patients who require immediate attention to basically fend for themselves or have to face correctional facilities.

Many seriously ill patients even have to visit emergency rooms just to get proper help. These are people who KNOW they have a problem, are looking for help and basically aren't supplied many options.

For every other type of illness, there is NO shortage of beds, no shortage of room for customers and no shortage of medication.

Could this be causing or aiding in the creation of a mental health crisis?

To be fair, admitting you needed psych help in the 19th century essentially meant you'd be interred for life, away from everything you knew.

I'd think it was more of a "hopeless, last resort" thing back then.

That doesn't sound un-plausible!

Plus the definition for mental illness has changed a few times to force HUGE groups of people to be considered 'ill' or flagged as potentially ill or a danger

"The Rosenhan experiment or Thud experiment was an experiment conducted to determine the validity of psychiatric diagnosis. The experimenters feigned hallucinations to enter psychiatric hospitals, and acted normally afterwards. They were diagnosed with psychiatric disorders and were given antipsychotic drugs".

"The second part of his study involved an offended hospital administration challenging Rosenhan to send pseudopatients to its facility, whom its staff would then detect. Rosenhan agreed and in the following weeks out of 193 new patients the staff identified 41 as potential pseudopatients, with 19 of these receiving suspicion from at least one psychiatrist and one other staff member. In fact, Rosenhan had sent no pseudopatients to the hospital."

Period life expectancy at birth in the mid-19th century was around 40 years for males and 42 years for females. These figures increased to around 45 and 50 years respectively by 1901. Life expectancy then rose dramatically until the mid- 1950s.

Absolutely we had 5-10 mental health hospitals and campuses 30 years ago today - none. The patients now wander the streets and die young.

Why - there's no money to be made. Warning do not take pharmaceutical drugs made in a lab by white coats.

Much more effective now, let them roam the streets until they become volatile. They are being ignored and used as weapons upon a civil minded society.

Use the vulnerable as transplant victims.

Use the kids who are all alone as human slaves.

Dark forces win on so many levels by eliminating the institutionalized mental care facilities.

This impacts all of society as the numbers continually increase through economic warfare, immigration etc.

That ripple effect we are all feeling as the scales of polarity have been pushed to extreme left side brain.

To me, the field seems to be unwittingly weaponizing mental illness, splitting personalities, changing characters. I do not necessarily believe even the doctors know what's happening on a mass scale. Ive asked! Lol. I asked my own shrink to delve into her own findings... That there are more cases now than ever in history. She shared with me that she was deeply addicted to drugs & alcohol before deciding to attend school. Everything worked out quickly for her. Almost too quickly considering she also had children. These are the people guarding the hen house. She was great for yrs.

I stopped seeing her when I noticed sores on her face and that weird mouth twitching thing they do. So bizarre.

Re: WOW. Loss of Psychiatric Hospitals could be CAUSING WIDESPREAD MENTAL ILLNESS - READ THE INFO
It is a problem even more so now with the increase of dementia within the elderly and middle aged people.
They require special wards in convalescent skilled level care nursing homes.
Mixing the psychiatric patients into such is not appropriate.

I know of one man who worked with his condition and never bothered anyone.
He was quiet and done his work, came and never played hooky as a no show, never came tardy.

He checked his own self into the nursing home and signed over all he had to them to finish caring for him.
By that time he already was in a fetal position.
It was hard to even recognize him.
He was a special person who endured a lot and did so quietly to the best of his ability and he knew what was wrong and happening the entire way, even up unto his death there.

You would have to fight back crying to see him, it was pitiful and he never deserved it.

We really need help for them, some are violent and not like him and it is very hard to maintain them on the regular wards of any nursing home.
It is risky unto the staff and the other patients there.

It is not a good situation at all, it was better in the days of having the State mental hospital operating more than it does today.
There are the diseases and there are the disorders and they are not the same, the diseased should be truly considered and helped, they were born that way.

Freud talks about the sexual component of mental illness but what underlies the sexual component is the vascular health. rage at not being able to feel sexual satisfaction, is really just lack of ability to get blood to your body, not just sex organs. by becoming enraged or highly agitated you are self adrenalizing in order to increase vascular blood flow.

I've said this for years. I work in a state psychiatric hospital.

There is no emergency room or acute care anymore.

Call your govenor and demand state hospitals being back acute care and er services.

The private sector cannot provide mental health care because most people don't have insurance and they have to operate at a profit.

State hospitals don't have to run at a profit. It's about wellness not money.

I actually don't think it sounds crazy that mental illness could be contagious. I'm also not certain some dementias can't be "caught" from others. I know a few nurses who have always worked in long term care (aka nursing homes), who are quite young, yet have dementia. They worked for years with patients with Alzheimers and other forms of dementia. I dunno.
