    Never mind that the FBI failed to heed and follow up on repeated and explicit warnings about Nikolas Cruz before his shooting rampage in Parkland, Florida. Never mind the FBI was too busy chasing phantom Russian collusion to locate a future killer that any nerd living in his parents' basement could have located with ease. According to mental health professional Jimmy Kimmel, Trump made Parkland happen by rescinding Obama administration regulations barring the mentally ill from getting guns:

    Here's how one schoolteacher takes time each week to look out for the lonely... Every Friday afternoon, she asks her students to take out a piece of paper and write down the names of four children with whom they’d like to sit the following week. The children know that these requests may or may not be honored. She also asks the students to nominate one student who they believe has been an 
exceptional classroom citizen that week. All ballots are privately submitted to her. And every single Friday afternoon, after the students go home, she takes out those slips of...

    Raley said she’ll “take all the criticism and attacks” for her opinion because, as a teacher with two decades of experience, she has to worry about an active-shooter situation on a daily basis. The middle school teacher said over her almost two decades as an educator that she’s seen an increase in violence and a lack of compassion among students. “Until we, as a country, are willing to get serious and talk about mental health issues, lack of available care for the mental health issues, lack of discipline in the home, horrendous lack of parental support when the schools are...

Some resistances come from people who believe they have the true doctrine and accuse you of being heretical. When I find no spiritual goodness in these people, for what they say or write, I simply pray for them”. These are some of the words that Pope Francis addressed to the Jesuits during the talk behind closed doors on 16 January last in Santiago de Chile. The...

  • What is the MoCA, the cognitive exam Trump took?

    President Trump earned a perfect score on a medical test that is used to detect early signs of dementia or Alzheimer's disease. The test, called the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, was conducted during his routine physical on Friday, at the insistence of the president, who wanted to tamp down rumors about his mental abilities that have surfaced from his critics. Dr. Ronny Jackson, the White House doctor who conducted the exam, said that he did not believe it was necessary because he hadn't noticed any issues with Trump's memory after spending the past year with him. The doctor's quarters are in...

    Damned if you’re demented, damned if you’re not. No good mental test result goes unpunished. On today’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski wasn’t taking yes for an answer when it came to the news that President Trump had a perfect score on a cognitive assessment test and that his personal physician found him mentally “very sharp.” To the contrary, said Mika, if Trump doesn’t have the excuse of mental impairment: “You can then deduce other things that are far more nefarious and frightening . . . the word evil comes to mind.” Get the rest of the story and view the...

    President Donald Trump asked the White House doctor to perform a cognitive exam during his physical last week, despite the doctor's determination that such testing wasn't necessary. "I have no concerns about his cognitive ability," Dr. Ronny Jackson told reporters on Tuesday. He said the testing was conducted at the President's wishes, and the results were normal.

    There was some suspicion that it'd happen, but Dr. Ronny Jackson is releasing detailed medical information about Trump - comparable to, or possibly even more than, he released when he examined Obama. Jackson says "there's no indication whatsoever" that Trump has any cognitive issues such as dementia or Alzheimer's or "any issue whatsoever with his thought process."

    Not too long ago we talked about Ivy League psychiatrist Dr. Bandy X. Lee, who had briefed members of Congress (read: pretty much entirely Democrats) on President Trump’s mental health. Despite having never even met the President, say nothing of examined him, she apparently had quite a lot to say. Dr. Lee and her colleagues who jumped on the dogpile have been getting some significant pushback since then, with not only members of the press (a few of them, anyway) objecting, but drawing a formal rebuke from the American Psychiatric Association (APA) who called for an end to “armchair psychiatry.”...

    Women are more miserable than men for almost their entire lives and are happier only after the age of 85, according to a large NHS survey. It found that women get progressively happier in retirement before overtaking men in their ninth decade. Psychiatrists say that this may be because so many are widowed by then. Growing numbers of Britons are reporting consistent unhappiness, the Health Survey for England found, with women more likely to report severe problems at almost every age.

    “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.” ~ Voltaire School administrators and board members terrified of expensive lawsuits are capitulating to the demands of gender confused adolescents. Parents are capitulating to the disordered thinking of their children, terrified that if they don’t, their children will commit suicide. Their fears are stoked by a deeply flawed study that is grossly misunderstood. Academia, the arts, and the professional medical and mental health communities are controlled by Leftists who affirm the nonsensical “trans” ideology. And the mainstream press—not known for deep thinking—swallows and regurgitates any Leftist nonsense that...

    A new survey by insurance firm Aviva found that 72 percent of 16 to 24-year-olds believe the term "snowflake" is unfairly applied to millennials. 74 percent of respondents took it a step farther, arguing that they believe the use of the label could have a negative effect on young people’s mental health. [Snip] Dr. Doug Wright argues that because young people are more likely to experience mental health issues than older generations, they are especially susceptible to damage as a result of usage of the "snowflake" label. ... "While young adults in particular appear to take offence to the...

    President Trump was asked on Monday during a presser whether better (as in stricter) gun control laws could have prevented the Texas Church massacre. The POTUS proved once again he’s awake and dropped a truth bomb: “Mental health is your problem here. This isn’t a guns situation. This is a mental health problem at the highest level. It’s a very, very sad event.” Truer words have never been spoken by a standing President. As Donald Trump described the murderer as a very deranged individual during a joint press conference in Japan on Monday, we already know quite a few things...

    The FBI released more than 1,500 pages of heavily-redacted documents Tuesday related to the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting the files shedding light on the relationship between gunman Adam Lanza and his mother prior to the deadly massacre. The documents, posted on the federal agency’s archive page, on the rampage in Newtown, Conn. that left 20 first-graders and six educators dead, include redacted grand jury subpoenas and reports by agents who interviewed people about Lanza. In one interview, an unidentified person told an FBI agent that Lanza’s mother, Nancy, was concerned about him a month before the shooting because he...

    Deinstitutionalization: How Does It Affect You Today? What Is the Real Cause of Mass Shootings Today? By Kimberly Amadeo Updated July 11, 2017 Definition: Deinstitutionalization is a government policy that moved mental health patients out of state-run "insane asylums" into federally funded community mental health centers. It began in the 1960s as a way to improve treatment of the mentally ill while also cutting government budgets. In 1955, the number peaked at 558,000 patients or 0.03 percent of the population. If the same percentage of the population were institutionalized today, that would be 750,000 mentally ill people. That's more than...

Too many people in our military are victims of suicide.
