  • Therapist calls for 'open, honest dialogues' between various players in
           behavioral health
    • Authors: Shannon Brys
      Abstract: After reading a recent article on Behavioral Healthcare, this therapist had some comments to share.  Thank you for the article titled Healthcare: ‘Too Important to be left to politicians.’ Recently, I was thinking of issues in my private practice which seem to overlap with Jeffrey A. Lieberman, MD’s points. To add on to his excellent points in this article, I’d like to offer some additional thoughts. These, of course, are coming from me, a LMHC, LADAC-1, CAS level therapist. There are many similarities between our two perspectives. read more

  • Internet2 hosts genomic research collaborative
    • Authors: Charlene Marietti
      Abstract: Researchers at the National Institutes of Health and George Washington University are piloting a genomic data-sharing project on a new, ultra-high-speed platform, creating state-of-the-art connectivity that is expected to ultimately yield big results—for both research and patient care. Preventive care is good for everbody. It fosters health and wellbeing and drives down care costs. Although some illnesses and causal agents can be directly linked, most cannot. Smoking, for example, has been proven to be a cause of lung cancer. But ongoing questions in the medical community continue to be focus on the role--and the importance--of genetics as it relates to disease. The questions extend to mental health, where cause and effect remain largely unidentifiable. read more

  • Eliminate curtains from all patient accessible areas
    • Authors: Shannon Brys
      Abstract: Curtains can visually soften a room but they also present some very serious potential hazards.  Curtains may be the most widely used window treatment in so-called "typical residential environments." They can visually soften a room but they also present some very serious potential hazards. Many facilities feel that their inherent risks are too great to be acceptable, especially in areas where patients will be alone for long periods of time, such as the patient bedrooms and bathrooms. read more

  • Untreated mental disorders, unchecked guns
    • Authors: Shannon Brys
      Abstract: The combination poses a clear threat to our children, but not the one we thought. The stories of mass violence by three young men – in Newtown, in Aurora, in Tucson – demonstrate a rare, but tragic convergence of two inadequate systems. The first, our mental health system, is chronically underfunded and, in many areas, inadequate due in part to public ignorance and apathy. The second, our system for firearms regulation, is also inconsistent and limited, not due to apathy but to the passionate involvement of gun enthusiasts.  read more
