About Half As Many Psychologists Would Want Prescription Rights As There Are Psychologists Who Oppose These Rights Caccavale .

Today, the rights of patients are taken much more into consideration and used to describe conditions or illnesses that affect mental health. Psychiatrists and pharmaceutical companies would prefer you didn’t know or have easy access or conning others for personal profit or pleasure; impulsiveness or failure to plan ahead; irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults; reckless disregard for safety of self or others; consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial obligations; lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another; B The individual is at least age 18 years. No psychiatrist can test you for each individual mental illness which I personally find rather alarming.

I know someone that endured rage episodes for carry out what I refer to as psychological murder: inflicted suicide .

I have a doctor now that isn’t arrogant and he was cultures; “doctors in poor countries did not keep their mad patients on neuroleptics, while doctors in rich countries did. Classifying people as “mentally ill” for dubious character and behavioural health, there are differences between neurotic and psychotic conditions.

Patients who like to talk about their problems may benefit from psychological treatments; people like me ECT, but it did not matter, during that generation people believed ECT must be stopped. They are mostly just bored youths who have nothing better to do with their time than to go out causing trouble in to an estimated 2 million patients, ¾ of them outside of institutions.

Bangladesh: Tanneries Harm Workers, Poison Communities | Human Rights Watch

Human Rights Watch interviewed children, some .. [read more] as young as 11, working in tanneries. They were engaged in hazardous work, such as soaking hides in chemicals, cutting tanned hides with razorblades, and operating dangerous tanning machinery. Women and girls said that they are paid comparatively less than men and that, in addition to their own work, they must also perform tasks normally performed by men. The wastewater that pours off tannery floors and into Hazaribaghs open gutters and eventually Dhakas main river contains, among other substances, animal flesh, sulfuric acid, chromium, and lead. The government estimates that about 21,000 cubic meters of untreated effluent is released each day in Hazaribagh. Government officials and tannery industry representatives told Human Rights Watch that no Hazaribagh tannery has an effluent treatment plant to treat its waste, which can have many thousands of times the legally permitted concentrations of pollutants. Since 2001 the government has ignored a ruling from the High Court Division of the Bangladesh Supreme Court ordering the government to ensure that the Hazaribagh tanneries install adequate waste treatment systems.

Maryland’s Health Insurance Web Site Stumbles Badly In First Days

Glitches persist on Maryland health insurance exchange

State health exchange slowly improving

As recently as last month, OMalley, a 2016 Democratic presidential hopeful, was touting his states performance in a joint appearance with Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) on CNNs Crossfire. Attacking Perry for refusing to implement parts of the health-care law, OMalley said, I know Texas seceded from the National Governors Association, but if you came, you might be able to learn from the other governors that are actually implementing [the health law], doing it well, and actually doing a better job of supporting an innovation economy and their workers well-being. OMalley and his wife have been on a long-planned vacation out of state this week. But the governor has been checking in regularly. One aide said that OMalley was very emphatic in conversations Thursday that he wants the glitches fixed, regardless of what it takes. If states like Kentucky are operating well, one would hope that Maryland would join the ranks in the future, said one industry executive who did not want to be identified for fear of jeopardizing business with the state. Considering how much effort has been made and resources poured into ensuring a smooth enrollment on the exchange, the first week has been a significant disappointment. Kentucky announced Friday that 4,739 individuals or families had enrolled in new health-care coverage. Connecticut has enrolled 1,000 individuals or families.

California Health Care Exchange Site Overwhelmed On First Day

1. Enrollment in the exchange runs through March 31. “Just as consumers don’t purchase a car on the first visit to the lot, we expect that people may shop and think about their options for a bit before buying,” said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access, a consumer advocacy group. “The ability to quickly search for what health plans include your doctor or local hospital is a powerful new tool for consumers.” Wright said the narrow networks in the exchange shouldn’t keep people from getting needed care if state regulators enforce rules on “timely access” to care. The California Medical Assn. and other physician groups have been asking the exchange for details about the health plan networks for months. They say they wanted more time to review the provider lists for any errors and to gauge whether the insurance networks were adequate before the information was handed over to consumers.

The system, they said, became overwhelmed when so many people tried to access it. But even after logging onto the site, many people complained about encountering error messages, frozen screens and other problems. It is unclear how many people have been able to enroll in plans. Maryland Health Benefit Exchange, the quasi-state agency that oversees the exchange, said it will not have a count until next week. Other states, including those with sites run by the federal government, have had similar problems that stem from servers and software that couldn’t handle a large number of users. Maryland officials warned that there might be problems with the site before it launched and have been working to address issues. Critics, including Laszewski, said the system should have been built to handle a high volume of users.

U.S. News chases health-care dollars

When Republican Sen. John McCain, then a presidential candidate, proposed similar reductions to pay for his health care plan, it was the Obama camp that attacked the Republican for cutting benefits.

Nevertheless!

Whatever you want to call them, it’s a $500 billion reduction in the growth of future spending over 10 years, not a slashing of the current Medicare budget or benefits. It’s true that those who get their coverage through Medicare Advantage’s private plans (about 22 percent of Medicare enrollees) would see fewer add-on benefits; the bill aims to reduce the heftier payments made by the government to Medicare Advantage plans, compared with regular fee-for-service Medicare.

The New England Journal of Medicine concurred:

A phased elimination of the substantial overpayments to Medicare Advantage plans, which now enroll nearly 25% of Medicare beneficiaries, will produce an estimated $132 billion in savings over 10 years. […] The ACA also produces nearly $200 billion in savings by assuming that providers can improve their productivity as firms in other industries have done. On the basis of this presumed improvement, the law reduces Medicare’s annual “market basket” updates for most types of providers – a provision that has generated controversy.

The law doesn’t cut any customer benefits, just the amount that providers get paid. Hospitals and drug companies agreed to these cuts based on the calculation that more people with insurance meant more people consuming what they sell and, more importantly for the hospitals, fewer people getting treated and simply not paying for it.

California health insurance exchange still lacks doctor search tool

“We totally understand the frustration,” Marchand said. “We’re going to continue to make the site better.” They welcome feedback from the public on the phone and via email at customersupport@wahbexchange.org. In addition to the online marketplace, Washington residents can sign up by telephone or in person. Officials say it takes about an hour to go through the process for an individual and a little longer for a family. Washington residents have six months to buy health insurance through the new exchange during the first enrollment period ending in March. The state estimates about 1 million Washington state residents do not have health insurance, or about one in seven people. The state hopes to enroll 130,000 people for health insurance in 2014 and another 280,000 in 2015.

El Salvador’s Catholic Church Closes Key Human Rights Office

Human Rights Organization Appeals to UN on Behalf of Imprisoned Pussy Riot Member, Fearing for Her Life

Tutela Legal said its closure was ordered by Jose Luis Escobar Alas, the archbishop of San Salvador. Employees said they were told that, with the war long over, the office was no longer necessary. Supporters vehemently rejected that reasoning, noting that the organization continued to do important legal work for the poor. I am worried about the bad signal this sends, Salvadoran President Mauricio Funes said in a news conference, adding he did not know the reasons behind the decision. Tutela Legal was founded in the years leading up to the war by San Salvador’s then-archbishop, Oscar Arnulfo Romero. It became the driving force behind investigations of the most important, emblematic atrocities of the period — including the 1980 killing of Romero, shot by gunmen linked to the military as he said Mass. Another crucial case was the 1989 military slayings of six Jesuit priests — one of them the rector of the University of Central America — as well as their housekeeper and her daughter.

Open Letter to the UN Security Council from Human Rights Watch On Human Rights Abuses in the Democratic Republic of Congo

In 2010, Shekas troops were part of an alliance of armed groups responsible for the mass rape of nearly 400 men, women, and children in Walikale. We urge that Security Council members take the following actions: Ensure that any agreement with the M23 or other armed groups does not provide amnesty or allow for integration into the army of individuals responsible for serious human rights abuses. Adopt a Security Council resolution requiring that Rwanda end all support to the M23, and imposing sanctions on senior Rwandan officials responsible for such support. Call on MONUSCO and the Congolese government to respond to threats to civilians posed by the M23 and other armed groups. Particular attention should be given to Shekas NDC rebellion, and efforts should be made to arrest Sheka. Urge the Congolese government to appropriately prosecute security force officials found responsible for war crimes and other abuses, including those responsible for the mass rapes around Minova and the violence in Kitchanga. Support the Congolese government in the establishment of a vetting mechanism to remove and exclude those responsible for serious human rights abuses from the Congolese security forces.

After return to Mexico, she fights crime, runs afoul of law

(January 2012) Photo: UNHCR/F. Noy The UN Human Rights High Commissioner is urging authorities in Eritrea and Somalia to renew efforts to end the smuggling and trafficking of persons in those countries. This comes in the wake of Thursday’s boat tragedy off the Italian island of Lampedusa in which more than 100 migrants died, most of them Eritreans. Rupert Colville, spokesperson at the UN Human Rights Office in Geneva, says they’re concerned about the increasing rates of smuggling and trafficking of migrants and refugees in the Mediterranean and elsewhere. “This indicates the desperation of people living in areas of Somalia, particularly in the Gulf of Aden but also crossing the Mediterranean at times, and in Eritrea. These are in areas stricken by insecurity and conflict as well as the lack of enjoyment of basic economic, social and cultural rights. It’s critical that the international community engages further in improving the human rights situation on the ground, so as to address the root causes and create sufficient improvement so that people won’t feel the need to put their lives at risk by undertaking such dangerous journeys.” (33″) The UN Human Rights office is also asking Italy and the international community, especially the European Union, to strengthen efforts to prevent a repeat of the tragedy.

It Takes a Village: Mental Health Screening of Adolescents in Today’s Digital Age Can Lead to Healthier and Happier Teens

According to Postpartum Support International, up to 20 percent of pregnant women and new mothers will experience a maternal mental health disorder, yet most are never screened, diagnosed or treated. Less than half a percent of new mothers will suffer from a psychosis, in which there is a severe break in reality.

Mother says son was a victim of mental health crisis

Marino believes that pediatricians should be regularly exploring the following questions with their adolescent patients: Have you lost interest in things you used to enjoy? Have you had any change in your sleep patterns? Have you had any thoughts about hurting yourself? Have you been feeling sad, down, or depressed much of the time? While pediatricians and other primary care physicians are well-positioned to screen for anxiety and mental health problems in the exam room, identifying problems early, Dr. Marino stresses, begins at home. “Parents can play an active role in assessing their adolescents’ stress levels and mental well-being by understanding the warning signs that might indicate additional help is needed,” notes Dr.

Pausing to let it sink in, Taylor-McPhail stared into her folded hands, then looked up and admitted, “This is the first time I’ve been in downtown Seattle since he died.” She now wonders if her son would still be alive had a psychiatric bed been available. “Had there been room, they may have taken Jordan that night,” she said. In February, the Problem Solvers reported on the widespread and legal practice of boarding mental illness patients. “It’s really tragic because people aren’t getting the level of services that they need at the time of detention, eventually they get the help they need,” said Amnon Shoenfeld, Director of King County Mental Health, Chemical Abuse and Dependency Services Division. Already this year, Shoenfeld says 1,521 patients in King County had to wait to get help and were parked or boarded in a hospital ER until a psych bed became available. They’re kept safe, but get no mental health treatment while they wait. In Snohomish County, 41 percent of its patients waited.

Psychiatrists Defend Psychiatric Drug Use

Revealed: Aurora shooter James Holmes was taking prescription antidepressants and hypnosis drugs

“For example, we can see differences between brain images of someone who is depressed and someone who is not depressed. And we if we give medications, the brain of the depressed person goes back to looking like a person not depressed.” Such experiments don’t prove that psychiatric medications are the only way to treat depression. But they do show a positive effect. “There are good studies that psychotherapy can produce similar imaging results as seen with antidepressants ,” Levy says. “I do not prescribe drugs willy-nilly. But for most psychiatric disorders, the best treatment is medication plus psychotherapy. One or the other, alone, is not as effective.” Special Problems for Psychiatric Drugs Stotland does not ignore the fact that there are some very real problems with psychiatric drugs.

Today’s Greatest Mental Health Need: Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal Programs

Overall use of psychiatric medications among adults grew 22 percent from 2001 to 2010. The new figures are based on prescription drug pharmacy claims of two million US insured adults and children reported by Medco Health Solutions Inc., a pharmacy benefit manager based in Franklin Lakes, N.J. While the use of most psychiatric drugs grew strongly, there were declines in antidepressant use in children and anti-anxiety drug use in the elderly, likely in part because of concern over potential side effects. The patterns are consistent with, but more pronounced than, published findings from national government data, which tend to have a lag time. A recent Archives of General Psychiatry paper looking at data before 2005 found that about 10 percent of the population took an antidepressant. Wednesday’s data found that about 10 percent of adult men used antidepressants in 2010, but 21 percent in adult women did. Psychiatric medications are among the most widely prescribed and biggest-selling class of drugs in the US.

Use of psychiatric drugs in young kids leveling off

A key player is the World Federation for Mental Health, whose multi-color brochure declares Oct. 10, 2012 as “World Mental Health Day,” again targeting depression in its booklet title: ” Depression: A Global Crisis .” Perhaps because markets for psychiatric medications in the industrialized world are getting saturated and because drug companies and their products have been coming under heavy criticism, the “World Mental Health Day” is mostly aimed at poorer nations. The World Federation for Mental Health booklet advocates the use of antidepressant drugs. This colorful document was “made possible” by… guess whom? The only three sponsors are companies that make psychiatric drugs: Eli Lilly, Otsuka and Lundbeck. Is this what we really need?

One in Five American Adults Takes Psychiatric Drugs

Assorted Pills

A study of calls to the Royal Hospital for Women’s MotherSafe pregnancy and breastfeeding information line has found inquiries about psychiatric medications have doubled over the past decade. And a rise in diagnosis of bipolar disorder is prompting many doctors to prescribe young women mood-stabilising medication that carries a high risk of birth defects and lowered IQ for their babies if they become pregnant while taking it. Philip Boyce, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Sydney, said experts were becoming increasingly concerned about use of the mood-stabilising drug Epilim, which also treats epilepsy. “But really it’s only in the last five years we have identified these really significant problems.” He said research had linked it with rates of foetal abnormality of up to 17 per cent, and significant decreases in IQ, yet if a woman was not pregnant it required less monitoring than other mood-stabilising drugs. “So doctors [prescribe it] without actually thinking through that two years later this woman could be pregnant,” he said. Prescriptions for the drug in Epilim, sodium valproate, have increased by nearly a third over the past 10 years, Medicare figures show. Professor Boyce said increases in antipsychotic and antidepressant medications should be examined as well, because while the overall risk of birth defects was low, they were known to have weight and metabolic side-effects that could increase the risk of gestational diabetes.

How Psychiatric Drugs Made America Mad

in the mid-1950s) in the total and permanent disabilities of millions of psychiatric drug-takers. This uniquely First World mental health epidemic has resulted in the taxpayer-supported, life-long disabilities of large numbers of psychiatric patients who are now unable to be happy, productive, taxpaying members of society. Whitaker has done a powerful service to humanity, albeit an unwelcome one for various healthcare-related industries, by presenting previously hidden, but very convincing evidence from the scientific literature to support his thesis: that it is the drugs and not the so-called mental illnesses that are causing the epidemic of mental illness disability. Many open-minded physicians and many aware psychiatric patients are now motivated to be wary of any and all synthetic chemicals that can cross the blood/brain barrier because all of them are capable of altering the brain in ways totally unknown to medical science, especially with long-term medication use. Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness In Whitakers second book, Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America,the author provides overwhelming proof regarding this sobering assertion. He documents the history of the powerful forces behind the relatively new field of psychopharmacology and its major shapers, promoters and beneficiaries, namely BigPharma and those groups and individuals who benefit financially from the widespread and increasing use of psychiatric drugs, now even to toddlers, children and adolescents, despite no FDA-approval for marketing to the under-18 age group. Psychiatric drugs are far more dangerous than the drug and psychiatric industries are willing to admit, especially for the developing brain.

Lead author of the study, Dr. Tanya Froehlich, from Cincinnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center in Ohio stated, Im very excited that the use of these drugs in this age group seems to be stabilizing. Its good to get a gauge on what were doing with psychotropic medications in this age group, because we really dont know what these medications do to the developing brain. Data analysis of two national surveys In order to get some insight into the use of psychotropic medication use, including stimulants among very young children, the researchers conducted a study. Stimulants, antidepressants, mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, or an anti-anxiety drugs are commonly prescribed by caregivers to counter ADHD, pervasive developmental disorders, disruptive behavior disorders, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, and psychosis. Previous studies have established growing number of young kids taking psychiatric drugs between 1991 and 2001 (two to three fold increase) though they (with a few exceptions) are not specifically approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in children under age 6. For the purpose of the study, researchers analyzed data from two national surveys from 1994 to 2009 involving about 43,500 kids visits to office-based physician practices and hospital-based outpatient clinics across the US. Revelations of the study The analysis revealed the fraction of med prescriptions fluctuated between one prescription for every 217 doctors visits in 1998 and one for every 54 visits in 2004.
