Mental Health, again!

What is it with the US obsession with mental health??

I have been going on a bit about the issue, particularly being amused by the fact that there is a mental health month in Denver, but this latest news issued by the British Medical Journal is just too much! Apparently the current administration plans to screen the whole US population for mental illnesses!

This is just too great an opportunity to think of heaps of cheap quips at the expense of our American friends! But I'll let it go for now - feel free to be creative yourself! I am just amazed at the fact that a nation once intent on the war on ... drugs is now preparing for a major move to get a good part of its population hooked on psychoactive substances. What a difference a cash guzzling election campaign makes ...
