Should there be mandatory mental health screenings?

 Anonymous (@) 7 years, 9 months ago

Psychiatry has a lot of value, so should there be compulsory mental health screenings, conducted at a young age?

Do we need psychiatry?


But I thought that psychiatry pushed eastern beliefs on people?

the spiritualist trend – join or desist?


And we know that you don’t like eastern beliefs.

Oh wait, I get it, people contradict, amirite? You’re boring.

eh? fuck off kindly haha..

Yes, people contradict. I’m glad you comprehend the human condition ;)

And yes, I can sense you’re offended because you beliveve the “spiritually anointed” only can contradict. meh, I don’t care, the world is a free for all. I believe this is the proper reason, so YOU are boring frankly… And I never said I “detested” Eastern beliefs, I don’t hate anybody or anything.

I know you, based on how you post. And before you cite me as “bad” for judging you, meh, you judge me and others here all the time. Hmmm… can that be reasoned, beyond what your guru/God told you?

sian (109) (@siantastic) 7 years, 9 months ago ago

Wasn’t gonna cite you as ‘bad’. I’ve cited you as a troll…and I actually happen to like trolls. So, wrong there.

Yup, I judge. I believe most do. But I try to learn what my judgements say about me, not other people. So correct on this one, well done.

I don’t have a god or guru. Wrong again.

You want another shot? This is fun!

haha.. yes, this is fun. But I don’t believe the part about the God/guru. lol..

Well as soon as you get any idea as to who my god or guru is, give me a shout. I wouldn’t mind being let in on that.

Anyway, thanks for the fun :D

One will not admit to that which I am not.

And really not entirely sure what it is that I am supposedly threatened by, so once again, feel free to enlighten.

er.. lol..

so yes, you sent me a message, was there a reason I must respond to it?

The only reason I’m responding to you is that it’s patently clear you’re offended at me “contradicting” and it is moving on your turf. Coupled with how many others here openly state they contradict, yet you cite mine as somehow worse.

Clearly you’re mentally retarded or don’t get how human interaction works, either way it’s comical.. :)

sian (109) (@siantastic) 7 years, 9 months ago ago

Haha! Of course there’s no reason you should respond. I didn’t say there was. As the message stated I sent it as our conversation here was getting all squished.

Anyhoo, I’m bored of you again, you fascinating creature you.

I was bored of you prior.

I just sense monumental unease and narcissism, since I am doing something all of you do in abundance, and have admitted as such on countless occasions.

So it’s clear you’re threatened or some other abnormal feeling, when I don’t care and don’t need to.

Absolutely 100% not under any circumstances. Here’s why:

Although I am passionately interested in all study related to the human mind and would consider it a wet dream to have across-the-board testing for purposes of research, there is the very important (and very unfortunate) aspect of what other possible agendas that information could be used/misused for besides pure learning. Especially in light of the fact that our “understanding” of everything in this world is in constant flux. So what passes for fact today will be debunked or expounded upon in 50 years time, at which point it’s too late to undo any damage done to anyone who suffered needless consequences because of a faulty profiling. There are too many members of our species who accept that there are concrete absolutes to our sciences when in fact, half the beauty of science is it’s eternal unfolding.

I hardly doubt anyone would disagree that certain members of society would become unnecessarily vulnerable. I have this perspective because I know that I am one of them. There is currently little-to-no way to differentiate between a person who receives a result of INTJ on the Jung typology chart and a sociopathic personality aside from actual behaviors they exhibit. Both are typically less adept at empathy and interpreting emotions of other (non-INTJ) persons. This is not grounds for alarm. In fact, there is even a demographic of genuine sociopaths who are in no way a danger to society as their motives are directed at control of personal surroundings and not power/control that manifests in a way that harms another’s reality bubble.

For all of the unfortunate human consciousnesses that would be demonized and harmed in ways that humankind has tended to do in response to fear throughout all of recorded history, this is my reason for opposing such an otherwise fascinating and beneficial information gathering project. Maybe several lifetimes beyond mine we will have evolved to a state of consciousness that doesn’t have to take such silliness into account and can manage to not harm one another needlessly for fear of the unknown. But now is (sadly) not that age.

It depends on the reason for the screenings, a young person’s psychological makeup is different from an older person’s psychological makeup.

I don’t really believe that any screening related to our health, should be compulsory….psychological screenings in particular. The interpretations of these sorts of tests are very subjective. And who would conduct these “screenings”? What would they do with the data they obtain? Who would have access to that data? Would they be pressuring parents into medicating children based on their findings? As a parent, I would not want any of this kind of info stored about my children. This would be a slippery slope to say the least.

Some are less subjective than others.

So if a person has a broken bone, this is subjective?

Joy (1) (@joy221) 7 years, 8 months ago ago

If you’ll note, I said “these” sorts of screenings referring to psychological screenings, which yes, are very subjective!

@desifemilove i swear that last time I logged in, you were saying the exact opposite! what!
and to answer your question, I think general health providers should be more aware of mentally related conditions in general because it could be helpful in detecting issues in kids and getting them the right assistance that would benefit them in life. For example, recognizing high functioning autism in a child or seeing if a child is being emotionally abused.
