Obama Administration Wants All Americans Subject To Mental Health Screenings

At this point in time, the Constitution for the united States of America is very close to ruin. In some areas, the administration and Congress have already shredded much of it.  All that is left is a few individual God-given unalienable rights for the government to usurp away and this nation as a free republic ceases to exist.  While many citizens of this great nation seethe in anger and focus on the dog and pony show 2016 presidential candidate nominee debates by both parties, this administration is moving rapidly closer to infringing on the one right through the back door that will leave this nation’s citizenry defenseless – the Second Amendment.

With the government gaining control over the health care insurance agency, it has the power to make the rules on what is mandatory to have concerning coverage as well as what evaluations every individual is mandated to have according to the core coverage requirements.   According to Infowars.com, “Next time you visit your doctor, be careful how you respond to his questions, or you may just be branded “mentally ill” and subjected to “treatment.”

That is because a panel advising the Obama administration, in partnership with Big Psychiatry, wants to make doctors subject all American adults and children over age 12 to screening for alleged “mental health” disorders — particularly depression, at least to start with. Then, anyone found to harbor any alleged mental disorder, including children as young as eight, should undergo “therapy,” often including powerful psychotropic medications that experts say have dubious value but often come with well-documented and highly dangerous side effects.

Remember, this will not be optional. Obamacare health plans will be forced to cover the service and pay for it.  While the panel is limiting coverage to children over age 12, one can take to the bank the age requirement will go lower and lower for mental health evaluations and “behavioral health services,” whether you as a parent want it or not.  There will be no choice in the government’s eyes – agree or face the wrath of Big Brother.  “School teachers, social workers, and more are all already being enlisted in the federal government’s search for supposed ‘mental and behavioral health’ issues — a list that is perpetually expanding as psychiatrists invent new ‘illnesses’.”   Naturally, this could be a back door into gun control and confiscation, as well as denying future adults the right to keep and bear arms due to having a mental disorder or illness.

The American Psychiatric Association relies heavily on the DSM-V and has added new “mental health disorders” that would include American patriots, such as Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD), while removing disorders such as homosexuality. This “listing” is entirely subjective and 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.” All health care insurance plans are required to conform to the minimum standards of mandatory coverage of Obamacare. Whether you want it or not, Big Brother will subject you to a mental health evaluation as well as your children over the age of 12.

However, the ACA did leave the door open to include children under the age of 12.

The New American reports:

The latest demands come from the United States Preventive Services Task Force, or USPSTF. The influential outfit, appointed by the Obama administration’s increasingly radical Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), recommends various unconstitutional federal health policies for Big Brother to decree into pseudo-law via regulation.

Its latest recommendations for children and adolescents 12 and older were published earlier this month 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 outfit also left the door open for recommending such “screening” for children under 12, too. “The USPSTF concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening for MDD in children aged 11 years and younger,” the Obama HHS panel wrote. The recommendations also call for using controversial medications such as Prozac to drug children between 12 and 17, while advocating powerful psychotropic substances such as Lexapro for children as young as eight.
