The hospital program she was admitted to offers psychiatric evaluations on an emergency basis, as well as interventions depending on what the patient is in need of, according to E!

    A literature review, which is often called a study by the media, conducted by Johns Hopkins professor Dr. Paul R. McHugh and epidemiologist Dr. Lawrence S. Mayer has led to an outcry by the Left and LGBTQ community due to their findings. McHugh is a University Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and had served as a psychiatrist-in-chief for the Johns Hopkins University Hospital and Mayer works at the Arizona State University. In the executive summary, the authors point out that: â—Ź "The understanding of sexual orientation as an innate, biologically fixed property of...

    SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — Hillary Clinton rolled out a comprehensive plan to address millions of Americans coping with mental illness, pointing to the need to fully integrate mental health services into the nation’s health care system. Clinton’s campaign released a multi-pronged approach to mental health care on Monday, aimed at ensuring that Americans would no longer separate mental health from physical health in terms of access, care and quality of treatment. “We’ve got to break through and break down the stigma and shame. We’ve got to make clear that mental health is not a personal failing. Right now it’s our...

    BROOKLYN, N.Y., Aug. 29 (UPI) — Hillary Clinton on Monday released a six-part plan to address nearly 50 million Americans afflicted with mental health problems. “Americans with mental health conditions and their families need our support,” she said in her proposal that runs more than 5,000 words. “The economic impact of mental illness is enormous – at nearly $200 billion per year nationwide in lost earnings] —and the human cost is worse.

    Only hours after he learned his only daughter was dead, Ed Shoener sat down to write her obituary. It felt like one way he could still take care of his little girl. He and his wife, Ruth, had been steeling themselves for this day since Katie’s first hospitalization more than 11 years ago. He knew immediately why the police were at his doorstep the night of Aug. 3. Yet nothing prepares a parent for the details about how their child ended her life. But if Shoener, a deacon at his Catholic church, learned anything watching his daughter’s long struggle with...

    While watching her in a pre-arranged and set up press conference (basically political theater) this morning she was unable to accept what the FBI Director had said about her being guilty of wrongdoing with the email scandal. I found it fascinating to watch her deny doing anything wrong although the rest of the planet by now knows she was 100% guilty. She also took credit for sending 30,000 emails during her four years as Sec. of State instead of crediting her office and assistants who actually sent the bulk of them. Of course she would then be saying she let...

    Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University and former psychiatrist–in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital, who has studied sexuality for 40 years, said it is a scientific fact that “there is no gay gene.” “Environment,” however, “is very important,” said Dr. McHugh, author of The Mind Has Mountains: Reflections on Society and Psychiatry. He also explained that the permissive sexual culture in the United States today has confused “desire” with “love,” and that homosexuality is a false or “erroneous desire.” In an interview with Virtue Online: The Voice for Global Orthodox Anglicanism, reporter Lydia...

    People with the condition are known to have any of a number of delusions that range from believing they have no organs, blood or body parts to insisting they are actually dead even though they are very much still breathing. In even more rare cases of what is also known as walking corpse syndrome, people with the condition consider themselves immortal. Although walking corpse syndrome is considered extremely rare, its exact prevalence is unknown. One Hong Kong study involving 349 psychogeriatric patients suggests the condition afflicts about 0.57 percent of the population. Another study conducted in Mexico in 2010, which...

    The number of men suffering from mental disorder is almost double compared to women in the country. Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S Subramaniam said the National Morbidity Study carried out last year revealed that a total of 42,168 people sought psychiatric treatment at government hospitals for some form of mental disorder. "Of this, a total of 27,855 men suffered mental disorder compared to 14,313 women," he said in written reply to a question by Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz (PAS-Pasir Mas) in Dewan Rakyat Wednesday.

    Yesterday we discussed the new disorder plaguing white middle class Americans: Empathy Deficit Disorder (EDD). Today I thought I would pursue one of the root causes: Snowflake Syndrome (ϟϟ). The latest outbreak of ϟϟ - at Seattle University, Matteo Ricci College School of Humanities - has been documented by the Daily Caller and, as the saying goes, requires a special kind of stupid. A brief summary: students at the Matteo Ricci School of Humanities took over the Dean’s office and demanded that the Dean be fired and all of their demands (which are ample) be met. Chief among their demands is an order...

    Asperger's syndrome. A myth. An invention by government to punish its victims for government's failures. This is because the government is supposed to always be right to the left. But far from it the government even in its efforts to conceal its failings and the failings of socialism and public education continues to fail and continues to injure innocent people in the name of the greater good. Instead of punishing bullies, instead of allowing educational alternatives, the government has invented a phony and dubious illness called Asperger's syndrome to punish the victims of bullying so our lazy teachers and...

    (CNSNews.com) -- Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder. Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion...

    Time Capsule Found at 1950s Mental Hospital, Contains Film With Message For the Future Construction crews in Indiana were shocked to discover a time capsule from 1958 at a former mental hospital. The most exciting part? It contains a film with a message to the future–a message about electroshock therapy and psychiatric drugs. Frustratingly, much of the audio from the film has been lost. What were they saying in the damaged parts of the film? Was it a warning? Did they know something that we don’t?!?! “When the psychiatrists of the future open this time capsule, only they will be...

    NEW YORK – At a hearing Monday in Manhattan in which he ruled filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza must continue community service for four more years, U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman said he considers D’Souza’s violation of federal campaign-finance laws to be evidence of a psychological problem and ordered further counseling. D’Souza’s defense counsel Benjamin Brafman provided evidence to the court that the psychiatrist D’Souza was ordered to see found no indication of depression or reason for medication. In addition, the psychologist D’Souza subsequently consulted provided a written statement concluding there was no need to continue the consultation, because D’Souza was...
