Mental health, decay and paradoxes

Mental health is becoming more and more popular, without noticing the enormous contradictions and paradoxes that tend to slip away when the subject is discussed. Mental illness, which has always been hidden or used as a serious insult, now, in any case, almost becomes a cry, at least the least.

40% of Spaniards admit to having some kind of mental disorder, and I don’t think they’ve seen the insults.

We have achieved something: the brand wins. With which, on the other hand, the limits of the American Psychiatric Association reach their summit, which in the thousand pages of its ‘Diagnostic Manual of Mental Disorders’ – the prevailing guide in the whole world – leaves no human offending in pathology. Which turns the practice into almost a monopoly of pharmacological treatment. That is, from the pills.

The growing concern about mental health is not accompanied by the necessary reflection on the contradictions involved in addressing this problem

There are always exceptions, of course. A similar gender dysphoria, which if anyone dares to hint at their ability, can end up in court, and finally get cleaned up. The disease does not make us certain; but for all, and for whatever reason, which must remain in the privacy of each -, it is admitted to prevent the spontaneous biological development of the adolescent with permanent drugs.

The following paradoxes: It goes without saying that there is a shortage of psychologists in Spain, but it is likely to have more graduates than any other country, and most of them are unemployed or working in some field. Their exit as professionals in the private sector is not viable. So many psychologists claim that they are aware that their satisfaction can only be achieved through better public health, or after the increase in salary that allows such an unlimited volume of citizens to pay for their therapies (which forces us to feel good about the election vote).

Another contradiction occurs when it is recognized that a good part of most mental disorders are common to abnormal personality education and existing social dysfunctions (a study has just been published that estimates that it would be a third depression in Spain. through access to a secure job to overcome). While research solutions are only reduced to demand, for the growth of hospital services and mental health consultations. As much as all this is really necessary, there is a lack of focus that could be committed if, having discovered the relationship of the epidemic with health care, everything ended up demanding an increase in the number of doctors and nurses. considering this also to analyze the rat deratization, to clean the streets and the purity of the water from the springs.

Paradoxically, the more awareness of the importance of a robust and competent health system became, and the more it grew, the more political its management became, advancing it from the full professionalization envisioned in the laudable initial goals. . Our Portuguese neighbors seem to have noticed this. This is proven by the recent approval of the innovative National Health Statute, which separates its leadership from political power, to which it cannot even be attributed. So emphatic. They should be clear about the matter and it is convenient to follow their experience urgently.
