Green Mental Health Care Petition

From Genita Petralli:

Sign this petition to show your support in making non-toxic, non drug-centric Green Mental Health Care strategies the first course of action for today’s epidemic mental health conditions. Mental Health Care should be held to the ethical creed, “First, Do No Harm” and should be driven by positive patient outcomes!

Functional Medicine and many other respected bodies of medicine have established that over 90% of today’s mental health issues have an underlying PHYSICAL cause such as hypoglycemia, adrenal fatigue, thyroid disorders, allergies, toxic exposures, damage done by food chemicals, pesticides, and heavy metals, and many other assaults created by today’s over stimulating and toxic environment. None of these conditions nor the root cause of a person’s symptoms that earn them diagnostic labels such as ADD/HD, depression, anxiety, OCD, bipolar, schizophrenic are explored and treated. Instead, toxic assault in the guise of medicine is used 99 out of 100 times a person visits a psychiatrist and many times that diagnosis and prescription is determined in just 30 minutes or less!

For every mental health symptom plaguing our society today there are many Green, non-toxic approaches that have been proven to be far more effective (superior patient outcomes) at a fraction of the cost.
By signing this petition you express your support in our public medical practices ensuring that all non-toxic, and non-invasive mental health strategies are exhausted before life threatening and debilitating drugs are considered. And that the patient must sign an “informed consent” acknowledging that they have been advised as to the documented negative side effects, diseases and deaths the drug is associated with so that the person may truly consider committing to a Green Mental Health Strategy before accepting the risks involved with psychotropic drugs.

Psychiatric Drugs are associated with:

– Every mass school shooting
– Suicide
– Domestic Violence
– Violent Crimes
– Increased incarcerations
– Increased emergency room visits and hospitalizations
– Costly county support services for those debilitated by the drugs
– Car accidents
– Obesity, diabetes, cancer, aneurisms, stroke, heart attack, degenerative disease, birth defects, anxiety, depression, fatigue, panic, fear, loss of quality of life, drug withdrawal syndrome to name just a few and a documented early mortality rate of 25 years.

This pseudo medical model is costing tax payers billions of dollars yearly and is not producing positive patient outcomes. You have to get off drugs to get well. It is a for-profit treatment for life business model, not a consumer, curative patient outcome business model.

The government continues to pour billions of dollars into this treatment methodology without requesting and monitoring performance criteria. If the model worked, there would be less people in the system yearly. Not hundreds of thousands more.

DARE TO SAY NO TO DRUGS! Sign this petition to show your support for non-toxic, evidence based Green Mental Health Care therapies being the first strategy for mental illness.

This includes but is not limited to those systems that have now proven themselves in 3 counties:

– Laboratory testing of the major neuroendocrine systems responsible for mental health
– Laboratory testing for toxic exposures to pesticides, food chemicals etc…
– Education regarding toxic exposures in food chemicals such as Aspartame, MSG and over 1500 others
– Allergy testing
– Identification of toxic exposures and detoxification strategies such as chelation therapies and other aggressive detoxification strategies for pesticide accumulation
– Expert counseling – psychology and life practice coaching systems such as Integral Life Practice and Integral Recovery – proven effective counseling should be provided at every stage of a person’s healing journey
– Spiritual development

– Meditation
– Community participation
– Career development and guidance
– Nutritional education
– Nutritional supplementation – targeted nutritional therapies proven to alleviate and dismiss symptoms
– Exercise

– Tai Chi, Qi Qong, Yoga
– EFT, NLP, Biofeedback, HeartMath
– Acupuncture
– Chiropractic
– Discontinuance of treating drug addiction with legal drugs, usually the legal synthetic versions of the very same illegal drug they were using. It is criminal to give addictive drugs to a person that has demonstrated any level of propensity for addictive substances. This is bold face profiteering from an easy market!

There are many, many more adjuvant therapies to elimination of toxic substances, good nutrition, sunlight, water, detoxification, and exercise that are not listed here but have proven to be valuable in achieving full recovery from mental health conditions and it is the responsibility of our government to use tax payer money to offer and provide those services in the public health sector that do not pose health risks and possible death and instead provide solutions known to increase quality of life and success rates.

It is imperative that we refocus mental health strategies away from mind-numbing, disease and death causing methodologies as the pharmaceutical companies are acquiring so much power in our government that US citizens are now being force drugged- including our children. As soon as the people began educating themselves and turning away from psych drugs, the drug companies targeted children- especially foster children, pregnant women, and the elderly in convalescent homes whom they feel society is least concerned about. These populations are now facing forced and coerced drugging meaning that human rights such as education and other medical services are being denied if they do not comply. Other people that want to get off are being threatened by their doctors with hospital admission- psychiatric incarceration. Parents are losing their children to foster home and being charged for medical neglect and child endangerment for refusing to give thier children psychiatric drugs that have been linked to child suicide, diabetes, sudden death, obesity and violence.

Sign the petition to help us show congress that the American people want non-toxic medical care to be our first option and have those options provided in our public medical health care facilities and community services.

Remember, medical practice and philosophy is supposed to be rooted in “First, Do No Harm”! Bring the Care back in Mental Health Care – say no to Pharma profits and medical regulations and YES to Green Mental Health Care for all citizens!

We will seek congressional support for this change and are currently drafting a Green Mental Health Care Bill. Your signature will be used to show your support for that Bill which will embody what is expressed in this petition.

Shine, brothers and sisters, SHINE!
Genita Petralli H.H.P., N.C., M.H.

New Health Care Bill Drafted by House of Representatives Filled with Psycho/Pharma Industry Agenda

Information: The newly-forged 1990-page “Affordable Health Care for America Act” (HR 3962) offered by the House of Representatives is filled with mental health provisions intended to prop up psychiatry as well as the pharmaceutical industry with billions in future income. Key mental health components of this House bill:

MOTHERS Act
The bill includes the language of the MOTHERS Act, to “expand treatment for postpartum conditions” and calls for the development of “improved screening and diagnostic techniques,” but makes no provisions to ensure any entities doing such research are free from conflicts of interest or pharmaceutical funding.  For example, Screening for Mental Health, Inc., and its sub-organization Signs of Suicide, who heavily promote and conduct mental health screening, received $4,985,925 from pharmaceutical companies prior to 2008, and ten leading psychiatric researchers have been exposed in the last year for failing to disclose millions of dollars in pharmaceutical payments.  Yet this bill contains no provisions for full disclosure of conflicts of interest for any “entity” that could receive federal taxpayer funded grants, do research or promotional campaigns – such as the provision in the bill calling for a national PR campaign using TV, radio public and other public service announcements to urge women be screened and seek treatment for postpartum depression.  The bill also calls for “clinical research” for the development of new treatments (drugs), but again, no guidelines for ensuring that any researchers/research entities are free from pharmaceutical funding or conflicts of interest. Section 2529, Page 1418

Mental Health Parity
The bill mandates Mental Health Parity, or equal insurance coverage for mental disorders as what are covered for physical diseases, whether under their regular health insurance or whether a person gets their new coverage through the Health Insurance Exchange.  Psychiatric patients are traditionally “cured” when their insurance benefits run out.  In this bill, those benefits never run out.  Considering there are no medical tests to verify the existence of any psychiatric disorder, and without anything other than a psychiatrist’s opinion about whether or not the person’s “illness” is “cured,” this legislation becomes nothing more than taxpayer funded billions to the psycho/pharmaceutical industry who will continue their jihad of mass drugging of Americans.  This provision could easily encompass all 374 diagnoses in psychiatry’s diagnostic manual, covering everything from Phase of Life Problem to Arithmetic Disorder.  Section 214, Page 100

Home Visitation Programs for Families with Young Children or Families Expecting Children
The bill creates a home visitation program for families with young children or which are expecting children or who have certain “risk factors.”  The program provides assessments regarding matters of “age appropriate behaviors,” for children, prevention of family violence and referral to outside services.  – Section 1904, Page 1177

School Based Health Clinics
The bill includes funding for School Based Health Clinics that will include subjective psychiatric mental health screening (called mental health assessments) of children, and “referral to a continuum of services including emergency psychiatric care, community support programs, inpatient care, and outpatient programs” as part of their “comprehensive primary health services.”  This is a direct feeder line for the psycho/pharmaceutical industry directly into our schools. – Section 2511, Page 1352

Wellness Program Grants for small employers
The grants in the bill serve as an incentive for employers to include “mental health” as part of the Wellness Program Grants to businesses.  Part of the program entails a “Behavioral Change Component” that encourages “healthy living through counseling” and may include programs relating to “tobacco use, obesity, stress management, depression and mental health.” – Section 112, Page 67

Federally Qualified Behavioral Health Centers
The bill creates new “Federally Qualified Behavioral Health Centers” and in order for existing community mental health centers to qualify, they have to provide, among other things, “mental health screening, assessment, and diagnosis,” as well as “outpatient clinic mental health services, including screening, assessment, diagnosis, psychotherapy and medication,” in addition to “crisis mental health services including 24-hour mobile crisis teams.”  – Section 2513, Page 1367

Your voice needs to be heard in Washington on this outrageous bill. Call, fax, or email your Representative and tell them that you are opposed to the above points in the Health Care Reform bill.
