The Psychiatric field has to update itself to fit into new models of medicine, and draw from modern science to supplement traditional methods of diagnosing and treating mental illness. These novel treatments can help sufferers afflicted with schizophrenia, anhedonia, depression, anxiety, ADHD, Bipolar, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), intrusive thoughts and OCD images and autism. This petition is a call for action and we want to drive as many people to sign this by APRIL 2nd, 2018.
Medical technology and researchers must prioritize finding ways to diagnose and treat patients with schizophrenia, depression, ADHD, Bipolar, anxiety and OCD. 1 in every 200 children has the disorder OCD. Current treatment, while somewhat effective in managing some symptoms, have unwanted side effects and limited efficacy. The root of these illnesses and the ultimate cure for them are also elusive.
As recent mass tragedies have highlighted the need for mental health is not just a matter of public health but safety.
This is a matter of public interest and must be addressed by the federal government. Incentives funding and encouragement from the government would go a long way towards funding, incentives and finding a cure not just a TEMPORARY solution!
Please forward this to as many loved ones and friends you have as these illnesses are often hidden in plain sight by April 2nd, 2018 - every signature counts!
