  •  Thanks, that's not what I was asking (4+ / 0-)

    I'm sincerely asking for a different poll Q and different answers.

    What would you ask people if you want readers to engage the nexus of medical privacy, barriers to accessing mental health care, and preservation of the individual RKBA?

    What Q&A will prompt people to think carefully about the trade offs? What would you ask them?

    IMHO, anything that will cause people to forego care, or to lie to their doctors is the wrong direction.

      I think that the poll above with expanded options is the question to ask.

      Barring that, the current situation is what we need to have. Currently, a person has be judged in court as having a mental illness. This preserves Due Process which I believe that most of us hold dear.

      There have been a few good diaries recently on mental illness and the sigma of. Eliminating that sigma and preserving Due Process would go a long way.  

      Apologies if my thoughts are dis-jointed. I have a bit more to say but have to get ready for dialysis so will be off line for most of the night.
