house Bill H.R. 826

Will A Study Be Able To Fix The Shortcomings In America’s Mental Health System?

Argument in favor

There are serious problems in America’s mental healthcare systems, and this study could identify and eventually lead to those shortcomings being addressed.

It's become increasingly clear the incredible gaps in America's mental health system need to be addressed. Citizens that don't have access to care often turn to self-harm or violence because they have no other options. This study won't fix the issue-but knowing where the holes in care lie is the right place to start.

This is a huge issue that currently receives limited funding and almost no national recognition.

As a society we need all the information we can get to make informed decisions. And the more we know the better we'll be at implementing effective policy.

Argument opposed

This bill wants to throw taxpayer dollars at a study that has very few guidelines and is not guaranteed to provide solid insights or tangible results.

We already know what is wrong. Reagan and his Republicans threw the mentally ill into the streets. Let's just take care of them.

Studies are only designed to serve as a delay tactic. Just please - fund the hospitals for the mentally ill.

How many US CITIZENS' TAX dollars are wasted in studies? We need to help those with mental health problems NOW, not after YET ANOTHER long study, resulting in contradictions, vague ideas and faulty ideals.

    This is another approach to gun control. Leave the second amendment alone. Get rid of the Muslims and the CAIR organizations and we will not need gun control.

    Studies are an important part of the scientific process. We need a study to develop a wholesome, prevention based approach to mental health care.

    We need to know this gap in mental healthcare to be able to find a solution to close that gap.

    No. Everyone needs to learn to to fend for themselves, to become more resilient. People, communities, and especially hospitals need to learn how to operate without using the money system in any way - you know like everyone did for tens of thousands of years before this so-called civilization!

    The problem with the mental health system is that the left thought that all asylums were prisons for those people, now prison is a prison for those people.

    Studies are wastes of money unless tied to a solution. We need to work on the issues posed by mental illness in the U.S., but it might best be handled on a state by state level.

    It's easy to blame politicians who had to make decisions on funding, but taxpayer money shouldn't be used to provide help and support where it can be done cheaper and more efficiently by private industry and charitable organizations. An independent study could provide some insights and possible solutions for this issues.

    Studying a problem is the first step toward solving it. If you are against studying something, you must already know everything about it or know enough to say there is no problem. I don't think anyone can reasonably claim the first, and those who claim the second are deluding themselves.

    We have to do something to counter the destructive policies started by the Reagan admin. You know, the buffoon who destroyed mental health care in this country, creating the homeless crises and filling of the prisons. Then he died in diapers.
