NAMI Blog: The Colorado Tragedy: Mental Health System Concerns

NAMI Blog: The Colorado Tragedy: Mental Health System Concerns | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

This week, the Washington Post revealed that in years past his mother sought counseling for him—because of his social isolation. Court filings then revealed he was seeing a psychiatrist at the University of Colorado prior to the July 20 attack.

 

Public discussion initially focused on the wide availability of guns in our society. It has now shifted to the question of whether or not the mental health care system failed leading up to the tragedy. It is an issue addressed eloquently in USA Today by Pete Earley in a guest column, “Massacres No Excuse to Stigmatize the Mentally Ill.”

 

There are many causes of violence in society. As reported by the U.S. Surgeon General “the overall contribution of mental disorders to the total level of violence in society is exceptionally small.”

As I child I often had dreams of the adult I would become--a pediatrician in a crisp white coat, an adored mom, the first female President of the United States, a tv journalist with perfectly coifed hair and impeccable makeup breaking tough stories. I could imagine the perfect house that I would live in with a white picket fence and bright green grass in the yard. I could even imagine the perfect marriage to the perfect husband and the perfectly behaved children I would have.

Child's psychological mistreatment may be subtle but harmful: study

Child's psychological mistreatment may be subtle but harmful: study | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

The child who is routinely yelled at, demeaned, ridiculed, ignored or terrorized by a parent may bear no outward signs of abuse. But abused he is, and the negative consequences for the child's mental health as well as his future relationships and sense of self-worth are generally significant, says a new clinical report from the nation's pediatricians.

» Many Helicopter Moms Prone to Crash and Burn   - Psych Central News | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

In a nation of supermoms and tiger moms, experts hope a new study may cause some to take notice as researchers have found that an intensive parenting style may damage a mother’s mental health.

 

Study authors surmise that mothers may think that an aggressive and domineering style makes them better mothers, so they are willing to sacrifice their own mental health to enhance their children’s cognitive, social and emotional outcomes.

 

“In reality, intensive parenting may have the opposite effect on children from what parents intend,” the authors said.

Sometimes There Is No Right Way | Tiny Buddha: Wisdom Quotes, Letting Go, Letting Happiness In

Sometimes There Is No Right Way | Tiny Buddha: Wisdom Quotes, Letting Go, Letting Happiness In | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it
“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.” ~Friedrich Nietzsche

 

I was raised in a home where a very common phrase was, “There’s a right way and a wrong way.”

 

The right way was the way my parents wanted things done. There were a great many rules surrounding the right way for nearly everything, in an attempt to ensure that we got it right, and, when the rules weren’t enough to enforce the rightness of our behavior, there were punishments, harsh words, and sometimes very public humiliation.
