I (Jeffrey Robert Palin Jr.) made this petition to make sure that “The Right to Request Consented Audio Recording and Video Recording of One’s Own Mental Health Sessions” becomes one of our new rights. This issue affects the Mental Health community and we need change now! Please sign and share with others!

Make Consented Audio Recording and Video Recording of Patients’/Clients’ Mental Health Sessions a Legal Option. A system of the audio recording and video recording of all mental health sessions between mental health specialists and their clients/patients should be implemented. The audio recordings and video recordings should be offered to all mental health specialists’ patients/clients as an option for every session or all mental health specialists’ patients/clients should at least have the option to request the audio recording and video recording of any session. The patient’s/client’s consent should be required for the recording of these sessions and no consent should be required from the patient’s/client’s mental health specialist because of reasons of being professional. This way, if a patient/client claims that information (recorded in writing or information recorded by typing on a computer) is innacurate to what was spoken/expressed in mental health sessions between that patient/client and mental health specialists and/or if a patient’s/client’s mental health specialist claims that that patient/client said/expressed something that that patient/client claims wasn’t said/expressed, the audio recording and video recording can be used for verification/confirmation purposes. This verification/confirmation can give patients/clients peace of mind about their sessions which is a positive health benefit. This verification/confirmation also enforces accurate records if there are inaccuracies discovered.
