No, We’re Not All Crazy


January 28, 2016 – San Francisco, CA – NOISECoalition News – In case you think psychoses are a problem affecting other people, consider this article in the Contra Costa Times for January 27th: On page 4A you find a small article entitled: Depression-screening advised for all adults.

Health Experts believe that every single individual in the country is in need of mental health counseling. They have declared Depression to be a common public health problem. (See End Notes#1)

They also re-assure us that it won’t be difficult to get that sort of health care because there are now, thanks to a multitude of Workforce Development legislation, so many more people being trained to be mental health counselors. (SB 22, Sen. Richard Roth, (D-Riverside Co) Residency Training. (see End Note #2)

In 2003, according to author B.K. Eakman, writing in The Chronicles, a $1.2 m study was completed funded by UCLA Center for Mental Health in which the study found that the main cohort of mentally unhealthy people were traditionalists and conservatives and, especially those who held strong religious convictions.

This idea of a link between disordered mental health and religion has been around at least since the 1980’s when state Senator John Vasconcellos wrote his book condemning religion, parents and formal education for all the wrongs and misfortunes in life. He claimed that children arrived at First Grade already damaged from exposure to these items.

Legislators like now discredited on bribery charges state Senator Leland Yee, a former Psychiatrist in private life, failed to pass mental health screening legislation over his years in office. He was trying hard to place counselors in elementary and junior high schools.

Also be aware that your own doctor, asking his/her innocent sounding questions of,”Well, Mrs. Jones, How are you today? may actually be screening you for depression. It is becoming routine. (see End Note 3)

Dennis Cuddy, Ph.D. Writing in his Mental Health, Education and Social Control, Part 1 report quotes from an October 1940 Mental Health vol, 1, no 4, in which a John Rawlings Reese (Deputy Director of the Tavistock Institute for Medical Psychology reveals: “We can justifiably stress our particular point of view with regard to the proper development of the human psyche…[we] must aim too make it permeate every educational activity in our national life…public life, politics and industry should all of them be within our sphere of influence…We have made a useful attack upon a number of professions. The two easiest of them naturally are te teaching profession and the Church…

In 1946 psychiatrist Brock Chisholm had picked up Rees’ mantra. He is quoted in an edition of PSYCHIATRY as stating: “A program of re-education or a new kind of education” needed to be charted whereby ‘the science of living should be made available to all people by being taught to all children in primary and secondary schools…only so, can we help our children to carry out their responsibilities as world citizens.”

Chisholm states further: “The reinterpretation and eventual eradication of othe concept of rigfht and wrong which has been the basis of child training, the substitution of intelligent and rational thinking for faith in the certainties of the old people, these are the belated objectives…for charting the changes in human behavior.

So, to sum-up; The “new” education is really the 80 plus year old idea heavily promoted by John Dewey,of using the school to produce the mentally and physically healthy child prepared to take his/or her place in the community workforce. This will be achieved by re-forming the school to be a place of indoctrination into the day’s current thinking on utilitarian and productivity by re-imaging a child’s understanding of moral and ethical and Christian absolutes.

In order to sell every parent, taxpayer and voter on that idea it is necessary to invent a scare of mental incapacitation through stress. Improper nutrition, family makeup, religion, low-paying jobs, etc. Take the child into the state’s education system by the age of 3 and just before his/her mind is well-formed by parental, traditional and faith-based values. But, be sure that the child accepts same sex marriage, abortion and contraception because mother earth can’t carry a large population of self capitalists.

Continually reinforce in the child the Utilitarian ideals of community first, individual second. This is being done by changing the role of teachers, parents and religious leaders, to accept the idea that only the school and only a humanistic approach to “education” can produce a child who will be guaranteed success in adulthood. Reforming education means actually re-imagining school as a place to gain physical and mental health. The academic subjects can be left to junior colleges and state run Universities.

  1. USPSTF calls for routine depression screening of all adults

the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) made its first-ever recommendation for “screening for maternal mental illness” in wake “of new evidence that maternal mental illness is more common than previously thought; that many cases of what has been called postpartum depression actually start during pregnancy; and that left untreated, these mood disorders can be detrimental to the well-being of children.” The guidelines were published online Jan. 26 in the Journal of the American Medical Association.Kaiser Permanente Targets Population Health with New Med“With a strong focus on strategic innovations, including population health management, team-based approaches to patient care, and patient engagement, the Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine will be based in Southern California.

  1. As told to me recently by a close friend: “Recently when I went to doctor, then returned for follow-up, there was a note about screened for depression, thus I asked about that screening. Answer I was fine, then I answered I didn’t know I was being screened.  Answer, “We screen everybody.”
