Teachers Being Trained To Detect Mental Illness In Students

Some drug companies are ecstatic that Sandy Hook happened. (Who knows, maybe they had a hand in it.) Ever since, they’ve been instrumental in shaping the media narrative with regards to mental illness. If they can get people to support more and regular mental health screenings by convincing them that everybody has some kind of made up mental illness, then they can sell more of their psychotropic drugs and hopefully contribute to more massacres which will in turn increase their profits yet again. And it has the added benefit of forcing people who are diagnosed with something to give up their weapons if they have any. So everybody wins. Except for American citizens. We end up losing even more again.

The Miami-Dade County School District in Florida is the nation’s 4th largest school district. They’ve decided to implement a training program in collaboration with the American Psychiatric Foundation called “Typical or Troubled?” They will be training 500 school psychologists, social workers, guidance counselors, teachers and other staff how to “pick up” on the early warning signs of mental illness. They’re looking to give therapy and/or drugs to as many kids as possible for their supposed illnesses:

 "Nationwide, approximately 15 million children and youth between the ages of 9 and 17 have diagnosable psychiatric disorders, with about 90% of those children exhibiting early warning signs by age 15.  More than 60% of young people with mental health disorders are not getting adequate treatment, and suicide is the third leading cause of death among teens and young adults 15-24 years old."

This “Typical or Troubled” program is already being used in about 420 schools across the nation. Over 40,000 teachers and other school personnel have been trained in detecting early signs of mental illness in students. The types of mental problems the schools hope to solve are things like Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder, which can be treated with psychotropic drugs with lots of possible side effects including but not limited to the following:  aggressive behavior or hostility, bipolar illness, psychotic or maniac symptoms (hallucinations), sudden death in those having heart problems or defects, stroke or heart attack, increased blood pressure and heart rate, seizures and eyesight changes, slowing of growth in children and suicidal and homicidal tendencies.

Some of the “early signs” of mental illness that these school personnel should be on the lookout for include the following:

  • Marked change in school performance, sleeping or eating habits
  • Aggressive or non-aggressive consistent violation of the rights of others-- Opposition to authority, truancy, thefts, or vandalism
  • Abuse of alcohol or drugs
  • Self-injury or self-destructive behavior
  • Sexual acting out
  • Threats to run away
  • Frequent outbursts of anger, aggression
  • Strange thoughts and feelings and unusual behaviors
  • Inability to cope with problems and daily activities

That pretty much covers the majority of young people in government schools today. Basically, every young person, whether he’s on drugs or not (legal drugs) needs to be subjected to regular mental health evaluations, given therapy and mind-altering drugs. And once they’re diagnosed with whatever made up illness the psychiatric community has come up with, that person will never be allowed to own a firearm because of “history of mental illness.” Are we sure we’re in support of barring people from owning guns because of “mental illness?” Because this is where it leads.

    Hows about we train people to detect mental illnesses in elected officials....like CDS.....Conservative Derangement Syndrome.... which is epidemic in DC.

    It is the acute onset of paranoia with an accompanying homicidal tendencies that occurs in leftists in reaction to the very existence of Conservatives and to their political ideology and policies. It is exacerbated when anyone opposes those with the illness.

    Too bad we don't have a pill or other modality to heal the disease.

    Another added "benefit".......more people will be able to claim Social Security Disability due to their mental illness.

    What???????? Training psychologists? I don't get it!!! Filling kids with drugs is not the answer. My granddaughter was put on Adderol because according to her teacher she needed something by some test in which I would have answered the questions differently than her teachers did, and it wasn't until I yelled my head off to get her off of it because when she would come here she would do nothing but lie on the bed and ask "Why am I living?" This happened in 2nd grade. Kids nowdays are on enough drugs that they somehow find a way to get and they don't need to be put on anymore. They need to get them off of drugs! Handling mental illness will indeed cut down on the mass murders however, they do not need to be put on drugs. School officials do need to be able to recognize mental illness just the same as all of us need to be on the lookout and recognize someone who is thinking of suicide. More drugs cannot be the only answer.
