How’s Your Mental Health?

Remember a while back when the Center For Disease Control forced physicians to further the agenda that firearms were a ‘social disease’ by ‘asking’ doctors to ask their patients if they has guns in the home, and were they secure?  (I just had a regular doctor visit a couple weeks ago, and the intake medical assistant asked me – as a matter of course – why I was there, and was I depressed or suicidal!)


The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, an influential panel appointed by the Department of Health and Human Services, has released its recommendation that all U.S. adults over the age of 18 undergo a mental illness evaluation as part of their regular health check-ups.

The report makes a recommendation that all adults should be screened at least once, though the “optimal frequency of such screening has not been established.” Thus the “B” grade; the panel is only “moderately” certain that blanket screenings could bring those billions down. However, that score does qualify the screenings for coverage under Obamacare.


This one comment on the post caught my eye:
“Look at the scam going on in schools; almost half the class are often designated “special needs”, which requires extra teachers to be hired and classes to be smaller, which also requires teachers to be hired. If you think this ridiculous mental health “screening” won’t be used to take away gun rights, you need your head examined. Oh the irony!”

Now all those kids that will move into adulthood are already labeled special needs even if they aren’t.

The Administration and it’s minions are continuing to try every means they can to keep you from purchasing, owning, possessing or (God-forbid!) carrying a firearm.

  1. I am a medical assistant. The query about “ the last month have you felt depressed” etc. is part of what is know as “meaningful use”. Our doctors are required to get a certain number of meaningful use points on our EMR (the computer software we use) or they catch it from the corporate Powers That Be who, I’m sure, are under the thumb of Big Brother.

  3. I’ve known some mentally ill folks. Thing is, you can have perfectly good conversations with them until one day it’s like BZZT! and you realize that somethings not quite right. Then you may need to be around them for a while before it becomes clear that they aren’t stable.
