Re: “Fighting the Stigma of Depression

If you want to end the stigma of mental illness, you will have to end the special HIPPA regulations that deny access of mental health patients to their own mental health records despite the fact that all other forms of protected health information are required by law to be granted upon request.

If a patient has AIDS, a highly stigmatized disease, they still have the right to request their own medical records.

If a patient has depression, they don't have the right to request their own medical records.

We treat people with mental illness worse than we treat people with AIDS, despite that mental illness can be cured in some cases, but there is no cure for AIDS.

Don't believe me?

"Providers Psychotherapy Notes

You do not have the right to access a providers psychotherapy notes.

Psychotherapy notes are notes that a mental health professional takes during a conversation with a patient. They are kept separate from the patients medical and billing records. HIPAA also does not allow the provider to make most disclosures about psychotherapy notes about you without your authorization."…

If you want to end stigma on mental illness, you will have to end the punishment of the mentally ill who choose to reveal their suicidal ideation to a professional with involuntary commitment. Considering even those convicted of crimes can generally avoid involuntary confinement, this treats the innocent mentally ill presenting for treatment for depression or suicidal ideation with a stigma worse than that attached to convicted criminals.

"The laws governing involuntary commitment vary from country to country and state to state, but, in general, laws restrict involuntary commitment to those who are mentally ill and/or under the influence of drugs or alcohol and are deemed to be in imminent danger of harming themselves or others. In the United States, the maximum initial time for involuntary commitment is usually 3 to 5 days."…

If you want to end stigma on mental illness, you can not socially tolerate attempts by non-physicians to diagnose their enemies with spurious mental illnesses in order to discredit them. However, as the last year's election cycle shows, this isn't only common, but apparently acceptable by even major media outlets.

If you want to end stigma on mental illness, psychiatric evaluations would not be considerable evidence in child custody battles.

"psychiatrists can contribute to custody decisions in evidence-based fashion by assessing parents for mental illness"…

If there were no stigma on mental illnesses such as depression, admission of depressive symptoms such as suicidal ideation would not result in consequences such as loss of the right to informed treatment and medical records, involuntary confinement in a hospital, loss of perceived fitness for work, and loss of the most precious thing of all, custody of their own biological children.

However, if you deem the sources I've provided as credible, these consequences are exactly what those considering seeking help face.

Re: “What's In Store

I'm not telling anyone what to do with their money, I'm just explaining to someone who asked why what's being done sucks more than it used to.

Re: “What's In Store

They started requesting a 3rd party verification login like an FB or G+ account instead of just an email so they could track trolls like Bricy.

It sucks because a lot of people are going to be less engaged on a personal level with the things that are going on around them in the city because they feel their speech is being tracked to be used against them at a later time if they express themselves.

Newpaper online comment sections make excellent town squares for local citizens to discuss the issues of the day in a civil format, but not when everyone's too scared to express themselves.

Re: “As Tennessee-Led Opioid Investigation Advances, City Could Sue Over Crisis

Civil penalties stop too short.

Other dope dealers have historically gotten hard prison time for peddling dope.

The rich who chose to engage in peddling dope in an office should be held to the same standard as the poor peddling dope on the street corner.

Anything short of hard time is a miscarriage of justice. Honestly many of these pushers deserve manslaughter charges, especially the ones who prescribed speed and benzos to teens; opening the door to abuse of pain pills later in life.

Re: “City Calls Second Public Planning Meeting for the Fairgrounds

I agree Memphis needs something like Libertyland again. I always felt Libertyland was intentionally shut down to drive families out of the city into the suburbs. An amusement park would be a great symbol of a revitalized urban core, and would provide a positive diversion to Memphian children if properly marketed towards Memphians.

Re: “Tennessee Floated as Location for Unite the Right Rally

@ Gerald

Genetic studies show asians both have higher IQ, longer lifespans, and overall better athletic capacity than european whites.

To abandon multiculturalism and embrace racial separatism is to create the possibility of the subjugation of the white race to demonstrably superior asian cultures. This was the fundamental threat of the USSR during the Cold War; the history of Russian pogroms demonstrates their capacity for ethnic conflict. Numerically and militarily they could crush the United States whether the US declared itself an officially and legally "white controlled" country or not, just as the Russians smothered the racial purity obsessed 3rd Reich in it's swaddling clothes under the weight of their corpses.

Similarly, a hindu-ethnostate, if motivated by a concept of racial superiority and the abandonment of multiculturalism, would crush us 3:1.

The Chinese, also, should they choose to abandon multiculturalism in favor of manifest destiny based on racial supremacy, could do the same.

Multiculturalism isn't destroying white folk traditions. Multiculturalism is the only thing keeping white folk traditions from being snuffed out of existence by superior folk traditions during a 3rd World War. The only way to win the war of genetic superiority is to out breed the competition like the famous multiculturalist Genghis Khan. Modern whites are too spoiled to embrace the level of austerity necessary to increase their numbers on a competitive scale with the levels of austerity other ethnicities have accepted in order to divert those funds to future generations.

You are being replaced because you are weak and refuse to invest in your children. If you want to embrace a doctrine of genetic superiority, be prepared to evolve, because otherwise you will go extinct.

Re: “Tennessee Floated as Location for Unite the Right Rally

I think Nashville is the natural choice for a united Nazi and KKK rally, as much as I would LOVE these idiots to attempt to march through Orange Mound.

Nashville already voted to keep the state capitol's shrine to a dead racist. They might as well have as written these Skinheads an invitation.
