Re-posted (in excerpt) from The Commonsense Show, please visit there for the whole article: New Obamacare Mental Health Policies Can Take Your Gun and Put You In a FEMA Camp
This is an enormously important article that covers current and ongoing initiatives by the Obama administration and by the states, under the palliative aegis of improving mental healthcare in the USA via the Affordable Health Care Act, to set up informal mental health screenings for children and adults and mandate psychiatric treatment for all those labelled through these screenings as suffering from depression, and to charge members of the Independent media with conspiracy theorizing or “paranoid ideation,” a charge which permits states to run involuntary testing/screening and commit “conspiracy theorists” in a 3-day hold to a mental institution.
Dave Hodges traces the history of Teen Screen, which ran from 2003 to 2012 and was closed down only after intense outcry at the psychotropic medications being forced on young adolescents. Currently, mental health screenings are being set up in a most insidious way: your doctor can informally check in on your mental state, quite without your knowing, and write you down as a depressive, upon which you will be required to take psychotropic drugs to “correct” your newly-diagnosed disorder.
Psychotropic drugs alter the brain, as Dave Hodges points out, this scenario therefore is quite like the political schizophrenia run by the Soviets, and its purpose is mind control.
The Affordable Health Care Act Replaces Teen Screen and Expands to the Mental Health Screening of All Adults
Next time you visit your doctor, be aware that your doctor is being required to assess your mental health on an informal basis. Be careful how you respond to your doctor, because you may be branded as mentally ill which could mean mandatory incarceration for “treatment” and forfeiture of assets to pay for said treatment. This is a thinly veiled version of the old Soviet Union’s “political schizophrenia”.
A panel advising the Obama administration, in partnership with Big Pharma, is in the process of requiring all doctors to screen American adults and children over age 12 to screening for alleged “mental health” disorders, especially for depression. Ultimately, anyone found to possess any type of mental disorder will undergo state mandated “therapy” Part and parcel to this therapy comes some very well-documented and highly dangerous side effects from the required medications which can be administered without the consent of the patient.
As it was with Teen Screen, teachers, social workers, and more are already being required to search for supposed “mental and behavioral health” issues
Therapists are drawing upon a very new frontier in order to force people into treatment as psychiatrists invent new “illnesses such as ODD.” The ultimate goal is the mass medicating of the American people. And with a judgment of mental illness, this is Obama’s latest strategy of gun confiscation.
The controversial “recommendations” include screening all Americans between the ages of 12 and 18 for depression. A separate but related recommendation seeks to have all U.S. adults checked for “mental illness,” too. And consider that the list of “illnesses” is subjective (homosexuality was a mental disorder a few decades ago) and is constantly expanding as psychiatrists vote to create new ones, literally, as part of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual — the “Bible” of psychiatry that has been widely criticized, even by leading psychiatrists.”
While Preventive Healthcare (Govt. website here) sounds perfectly logical and sane, the Requiring of preventive screening of any kind, hand in hand with Mandatory Drug Treatment, whether for kids or adults, should ring alarm bells for all of us. The Ministry of Prevention is approaching us, long syringe and straitjacket in hand–shall we wake up now and stop the nightmare, or just keep on dreaming that we’re free, as we’re being carted off to mental asylums in a misty fog of Prozac?
This new application of mental health treatment is being done under the auspices of the United States Preventive Services Task Force, or USPSTF. Make no mistake about it, this organization, appointed by the Obama administration’s increasingly radical and United Nations controlled Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), recommends various unconstitutional federal health policies which will result in the evisceration of civil liberties for millions of unsuspecting Americans.
The new guidelines published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. The USPSTF recommends screening for major depressive disorder (MDD) in adolescents aged 12 to 18 years,” the HHS task force said in the summary of its position. “Screening should be implemented with adequate systems in place to ensure accurate diagnosis, effective treatment, and appropriate follow-up.” The testing is be mandated and will required with no exceptions. You don’t have to be on Obamacare. All doctors will be required to participate.
On the subject of Indy media expressing views questioning the government:
These practices are reminiscent of how the Soviets used to imprison political enemies. The Soviets simply said if anyone disagree with the government, they must have “political schizophrenia” and required to have treatment in a mental healthcare facility.
All “Conspiracy Theorists” Are Mentally Ill According to DSM V
When I went through my clinical training, the Bible of mental illness, The Statistical and Diagnostic Manual (DSM-4r) defined Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) as a highly controversial mental illness used to describe children and teens as mentally ill if they exhibited disobedience and defiance. When I was first nationally credentialed, most practitioners did not take this diagnosis seriously and we mistakenly believed that it would fade away. We uniformly believed this to be true because defiance and oppositional behaviors are hallmark traits of healthy rebellion exhibited by children and teens as they seek independence. Rather than ODD fading away, the diagnosis has become the tool of the ruling elite.
The new DSM (5) has expanded the definition of ODD to include adults who exemplify “paranoid ideation” about the government and frequently express these delusional ideations on the Internet.
In most states, the government could arrest a member of the Independent Media based upon a charge of “threat to self and others due to paranoid ideation under the new ODD. The hold of the media types would be f0r 72 hours. The “patient” would not be able to speak with family and more importantly, with an attorney. The result could be a sentence which remands one to a mental health facility where they are forcibly drugged since they are now a ward of the state. Personal assets can be seized in order to pay for “treatment”.
An added revelation in this article is that not merely are mental health facilities opening all around the country, FEMA-camp-like mental institutions are being built, presumably to house those radical dissenters engaged in serious research and communications to the populace in their stance as Independent Media, which the state can characterize as “paranoid ideation” as it pleases.
Please read the whole article at The Commonsense Show, please pass on this information. We need to speak out against a system that would arbitrarily screen us and our children for spurious DSM-invented mental health “disorders” in its desperate attempts to control the narrative and contain dissent–these are transparent attempts to control behavior, thinking, and critiques of the government by seeking to mis-characterize, forcibly drug, and eventually, disappear all independent and critical thinkers, doers, and journalists. All signs of a fascism already here, if not approaching at frenetic speed, unless we wake up and recognize the tyranny for what it really is and collectively and individually put a stop to it.
