“Politicians are aware, but they need to act on all the human abuse going on and being agreed to by themselves.” Yes. There is currently some social/political focus on this in the context of George Floyd’s death. Primarily peaceful advocates are joined in the streets of Portland by people with other agendas, wanting revolution. Those in power, on either side, seem unwilling to yield, to consider other points of view. What may come of all this — and how – remains to be determined. Nevertheless, it seems a positive thing, Robert, that you have articulated your view so well here in this public space. It may not be “ruling” yet, or ever – it may have difficulties of its own, to be determined if/when the paradigm shifts. The “social determinants” model of mental health care is an important contribution to ideas about overall shifts in how our society may operate – which, then, affect the social determinants of people’s distress. I wonder if relating your focus on mental health care to the more overall questions of possible paradigm shifts in our society might make it easier to talk with some of your colleagues? Especially in Portland, and maybe in Salem and other places in Oregon as well.
