There was a time when Medicaid didn’t pay providers in Texas if they used a diagnosis of Oppositional Defiant Disorder as it was classified as a behavior problem, not mental illness. Don’t know if that is still true or not but I do know that a lot of mental health providers switched to something else - like Adjustment Disorder. It is a racket.
Apparently, one of those seriously mentally ill Americans wrote this article.
“They should have been happy with what they had.”
True, but many entered that field because they were a bit off themselves.
If only they would ‘off’ themselves. Well, I can hope, can’t I?
This is a hugely stressful society the international elitists have socially, economically and politically engineered. It’s only going to get worse.
Totally agree. It’s all so horrible it has to be some part of some crazy sick warped group agenda. And the antidepressants, antipsychotics, and other psych drugs misrepresented as being able to “cure” or “help” mental illness can actually by themselves, cause permanent mental and physical disability, suicide or homicides. The sealed medical records of a number of school shooters would prove the damage these drugs can cause. There is a video called Dead Wrong that shows what happened when a teenager who had had bad dreams was given “samples” of a common psych drug.
Liberalism is a mental disorder . : )
Sing it from the rooftops Muchacho uhh,, man!!

Not particularly surprising when we are told gay is okay, not knowing if you are a boy or a girl is normal, being an illegal alien gives you the same rights as a citizen, being taxed at a rate of half of everything you make is reasonable, we spontaneously emerged from a pool of primordial goo with no evidence, we caused the earth to warm and we have caused all the worlds ills despite being the most generous nation on earth... and we are surprised that 20% of us are mentally ill? Really?
Women voters tend to lean Democrat -- I think we've found an explanation.
Gee, I wonder how much lobbying the mental health professionals and Big Pharma did for this study?
