Question by Daniel: Do you think educating the public about mental health issues would be a good thing to do?
I am studying community health in college, with a minor in health education. I am thinking about being a mental health advocate and a lobbyist someday. I also plan on educating the general public about many mental health issues, especially depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Do you think this is a good thing to do, in general? What good would come out of it?

Thanks a lot for your answers!

Question by nilet4569: What are some of the issues facing education on american Indian Reservations?
Why on some reservations the quality of education is not the greatest. Is it a general issue.

Best answer:

Answer by Whortleberry
Sad to say, Native American reservations are not the only places where the quality of education is — not the greatest, to put it gently. Federal funding for education has been cut, state funding for education has been cut — local cities and counties are laying off teachers and closing schools because they don’t have the money to pay them.

And we citizens allow this to happen. It doesn’t take great foreknowledge of the future to see where a dumbed-down America is heading — and it’s not pretty.

As to the Native Americans in particular, since the US government headed the activity of forcing them off their native lands and virtually imprisoning them on reservations — I fear we can’t expect much in the funding of Native Americans education.

This is a sad commentary on the nation we like to think of as “the best.”

Question by Leesabrat: When are we finally going to address mental health issues?
Reagan shut down most of the mental institutions, and health insurance companies cover little, if any, mental health issues.

Will this be a wake-up call for mental illness? Most PhDs in Psychology are hired by advertising agencies – these PhDs can’t find a decent job in mental health.

What is the solution?

Question by ColbyGurl: What are some education issues our nation is facing?
I am writing an essay about some education issues our nation is facing, but I can’t seem to find any information on the topic. I am focusing on the unfair education system, which includes that students who attend wealthier schools receive a better education than students who attend poorer schools. Since they have more resources available,etc. Any ideas where I can find some information?

Who pays for mental health treatment? What are some of the issues surrounding financing of mental health care?

Answer by xena
Well, if your health insurance covers it, they pay for most of it, depending on your policy. Otherwise you pay for it. Unless you’re on medicaid.

I think alot of people that need mental health care don’t get it because they can’t afford it. That’s a sad thing.
