 @9JYPSTW from Ohio agreed…3mos3MO

Yes they should because bad mental health leads to psychopaths like traffickers, murderers, predators and more. If we can provide better treatment for mental health then we can decrease the rates of these people.

 @9F8CZRD from Colorado agreed…8mos8MO

If we continue to uphold strict social standards on how people should live, it is unreasonable to deny mental health care.

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...11yrs11Y

Yes, our mental healthcare system needs more funding to provide a higher quality of care and services

I am a grandmother of 2 boy's now 13 and 15 wow this has been a roller coaster ride they both have had to have mental health help and the 13 year old has been thrown under the bus with so many meds that helped and did not help I have learned so much about mental health I have had to kick and scream for my 13 year old and will until my last breath. This is just a tip of the ice burg. Every day is a new lesson.

Did their mental health decline during the COVID lockdowns?

 @9FLS866 from California agreed…8mos8MO

I've been through multiple health care programs for my mental health and psychological disabilities and the funding is so terribly low.

 @9FM3NTH from Georgia disagreed…8mos8MO

Our Scorecard ranks every state's health care system based on how well it provides high-quality, accessible, and equitable health care.

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...7yrs7Y

Yes, but only increase funding for personalized care instead of subsidizing pharmaceutical companies

 @9GGXNCD from Colorado disagreed…7mos7MO

It is not the responsibility of the federal government to babysit everybody individually. It does not have the money to fund programs that cater towards each individual's needs, and it should not have to. Mental health is a valid issue that needs to be addressed, but at some point that responsibility falls to the person with mental health issues and their family/friends/immediate community, not the federal government.

 @9G833YJ from North Carolina disagreed…7mos7MO

I disagree because the entire metal health stuff is just brainwash, we’re just animals. If you tell someone over and over again something is wrong with them then they’ll think something is wrong.

 @9G8FL7H from California disagreed…7mos7MO

Mental health care is important and should have increase of funding majority of the people need support majority of the time

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...11yrs11Y


 @9FLS866 from California disagreed…8mos8MO

Mental health is important for everyone, and the government should pay more for it to help take care of it's country.

 @9FM3NTH from Georgia agreed…8mos8MO

Just as there is no health without mental health, so to there is no mental health with physical health.

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...7yrs7Y

No, incentivize private companies to address this issue instead

 @9F8CZRD from Colorado disagreed…8mos8MO

Health care as a whole should have no privitization. It should be a right for everyone, mental health care included.

 @9F5LV5GSocialist from California disagreed…8mos8MO

People would become even more reliant on their employer for health services, as we already are for healthcare. People would feel like they need to stay at their job for those services.

 @9CWJ7N8 from Texas answered…10mos10MO

No and disability diagnosises for most people dont exist and are cop outs

Yes and No, our mental healthcare system needs more funding to provide a higher quality of care and services but only increase funding for personalized care instead of subsidizing pharmaceutical companies

 @9GT9D2R from New York answered…6mos6MO

No people need to grow up and stop using mental health as a crutch to get their way and not have to be held to the same standards

  @VulcanMan6  from Kansas disagreed…6mos6MO

It sounds like you didn't get enough mental health treatment in your life...

 @9CWNMYN from Georgia answered…10mos10MO

Yes as a alternative to gender affirming care so they can get real mental medical help

 @9B8BFNG from Washington answered…1yr1Y

Is there such a thing as mental illness?

 @AllisonCKrug15 from North Carolina commented…7mos7MO

Mental health IS REAL and it is not a joke. I have been hospitalized twice and put in therapy multiple times for severe anxiety and depression. So yes, there is such thing as mental health.

 @99T45NQSocialist from California answered…1yr1Y

 @9CY7BQ5 from Washington answered…10mos10MO

No, and the government should not recognize the concept of mental health, because this is a violation of free will and the First Amendment

 @9M9H5VT from Iowa answered…2wks2W

yes, because mental health is a global issue which is dangerous to mankind. So government needs to help fund it research and treatment.

 @9M64JJV from Michigan answered…2wks2W

The community should freely provide mental health care through worker-owned cooperatives and mutual aid systems

 @9LZ2GPK from Texas answered…3wks3W

Only if researchers are not paid for by lobbiest or political activists like the LBGT movement. Many psychology institutions and boards have been bought and paid for to get the outcomes the financial provider is looking for.

 @9LNY2FZ from Virginia answered…4wks4W

Yes, the human mind and soul are very important, and rigorous study to reveal the causes of personal shortcomings will allow the populace to improve their life situation

 @9LL2YZ4 from Missouri answered…1mo1MO

Yes, but enough funding to do more extensive research but not too much where it takes away from other funds such as the military.

 @9LJY92KLibertarian from Pennsylvania answered…1mo1MO

Yes, we need to ban smartphones and revert to cellphones, and to limit internet use significantly. Turns out walking around with a camera and a virtual bullhorn in your pocket makes people feel anxious and depressed.

 @9LF4NZX from Nebraska answered…1mo1MO

I would say that it would be better for private companies (instead of government) should do stuff for mental health.

 @9L868XL from California answered…2mos2MO

Yes, but it should be a Public-Private strategy so that we can have the resources of the government while also having the efficiency of private research companies and organizations

 @9L6F7CTSocialist  from Florida answered…2mos2MO

Yes, and pharmaceutical companies should be held accountable for exploiting the healthcare industry. With free universal healthcare, we should be able to have more control over our doctors and have them be held to a certain standard for treatment and discrimination as well.

 @9KM799Kfrom Montana answered…2mos2MO

Yes, and re-open asylums so people who are dangers to themselves & others can be safely removed from society.

 @9KCTSD4 from Kentucky answered…3mos3MO

I personally have mental health issues but I believe it is caused by the way people treat each other. I don't think the government funding can help the problem.

 @9KC893XLibertarian from Virgin Islands answered…3mos3MO

Yes, but the budget should be limited and funds should only be provided to private researches who are able to demonstrate legitimate and viable research for which they need a grant.

 @9K7YMTG from California answered…3mos3MO

Yes, so long as the funding prioritizes community based interventions and is actively designed to avoid warehousing of people with disabilities.

 @9K6T7L6 from New Hampshire answered…3mos3MO

It seems like the more focus we have put on mental health, the worse it has gotten. These therapists seem to be making people worse, not better. Medication is being prescribed and handed out like candy, and many of them have severe possible side-effects.

 @9K53FZ3  from North Carolina answered…3mos3MO

Yes, but use known treatments for the mentally ill and remove criminally insane people from society quickly.

 @9K4P5YY  from Virginia answered…3mos3MO

No, it'd be nice if the government did contribute, but the government shouldn't be forced to contribute
