Federal Advisory Panel Calls For Mandatory 'Depression Screening' As Part Of 'Obamacare Checkup'

Task Force says doctors should screen all adults for depression

Primary care doctors should screen all adults for depression, including including older adults, pregnant women and new mothers, an influential expert panel recommended Tuesday. In its previous recommendation [2009], the panel had recommended screening adults for depression only when mental health services were available. The panel said this limitation is no longer needed, because mental health services are more widely available today than in 2009, when its last recommendations were published.

The recommendations come from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, an independent group of experts who advise the federal government on ways to prevent disease or complications from disease...The recommendations are published in JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association, and apply to adults 18 years and older. The task force is in the midst of updating its recommendations for depression screening in children and teens.

Doctors can screen for depression by asking patients to fill out short surveys.

Primary care doctors, who treat patients for general needs, are in a good position to screen adults for depression, Snook said. That's because people who suffer from depression may not seek out mental health care.

Depression is widespread. Nearly 7% of American adults, or about 16 million people, had at least one "major depressive episode" last year, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness...In an accompanying editorial, psychiatrist Michael Thase wrote that primary care providers should screen people with a history of depression at every visit.

Quotes from two related articles noting the obvious, namely that "depression" is just the entry-point for the znwo totalitarian 'mandatory screenings' population-control agenda:

From Ron Paul op-ed: The United States Preventive Services Task Force recently recommended mandatory depression screening for all Americans. The task force wants to force health insurance companies to pay for the screening...Consider that until 1973 homosexuality was considered a mental disorder by the American Psychiatric Association. Today, some mental health professionals think that those who believe in limited government, free-market economics, or traditional values suffer from mental disorders. If mandatory depression screening becomes a reality, it is likely this mental health screening will be expanded to cover screening for other mental illnesses. This could result in anyone with an unpopular political belief or lifestyle choice being labeled as “mentally ill.”

From: infowars article "According to statistics compiled by the Kim Foundation 57.7 million Americans (26.2 percent) ages 18 and older or about one in four adults suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder...But this is only the tip of the iceberg according to the government. A National Institute of Mental Health survey conducted between 2001 and 2003, found that 46 percent of Americans met criteria established by the American Psychiatric Association for having had mental illness. The categories included: anxiety disorders, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), “mood disorders,” “impulse-control disorders,” and a wide range of behavioral problems"
Mandatory so-called mental health screening, as a part of mandatory so-called Obamacare, has been in the works for some time now. This is known. What is also known is the real purpose, as mentioned in the two quotes directly above, and in the posts below. Very simply, and very transparently, it is nothing less than the installation of a 'novus-ordo-seclorum' gatekeeping program. This new 'recommendation' as reported above is a very definite upping of the rhetoric though, and a strong indication that the actual large-scale launch of the agenda is now that much closer. More about the largeness of that scale:

1 In 4 Adults Have "Critical" Mental Issues, Say Rick Warren, Catholics, Psychs At "Historic" Conference 3-28-14

[3-30-14] "Mental health, so called, is a critical component of the ZWO population-control agenda. 'Mandatory screening of the public as a routine part of overall health care is the end goal - adults, children, everybody. The agenda is now being forced in every arena. Forced screening for "mental fitness" creates a gate-keeping mechanism where 'mental-health professionals' would have the ability to identify those who may not 'think' the way the novus-ordo-seclorum-ites would like them to. It is not difficult to see the real intent. Answer all questions correctly and there will be no problem - answering incorrectly might just get you red-flagged. Purpose-driven Warren is on board as a result of the purported suicide of his son, purportedly occurring less than one year ago (4-'13). Immediately after this purported incident, Warren suddenly became a national spokesman and champion of the cause' -- It does not get any more Orwellian. And again, the true intent is pathetically obvious - forcing mental screening and an overall so-called integration program upon all of society, i.e total control of the individual." [see post; also: Warren 4-18-13]

'Mental Health America' Asks Congress For Forced Psychological Screenings; re: Aurora, Sandy Hook, Etc. 1-7-13 "Mental Health America today called on President Obama and Congress to take action in response to the Newtown tragedy by identifying and implementing solutions that expand the capacity and capabilities of the nation's mental health programs and services..." [to] "...Order the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act and the Mental Health Parity Law: ...Mental health and substance abuse services must be fully integrated with quality medical care...Enacting the Mental Health in Schools Act is a step in the right direction and should be followed by appropriate legislation for intervening with children from zero to five years of age." - They want the children first, and they want them now. Full control from birth. The intent can be nothing less than to program them, to force the new-order servitude belief system into their little heads, and to 'reeducate' the original-thinkers in the group. Doubtless, the agenda is not to be limited to school children, note the second clause above which states that "mental health...services must be fully integrated with quality health care". This can only mean forced "mental health" screenings eventually for all who have been 'mandated' into the so-called Obamacare system - which is everybody. Get them under the bright lights with a shiny object swinging back and forth before their eyes - 'you vill comply with the beast, citizen, and you vill like it...'

see all: NWO forced psych evals

Suppose once this 'screening-system' gets up and running the next thing will be to make it illegal to not go in for a regular 'obamacare checkup'. At any rate, know all about it because your 'Primary Care doc' may be about to be deputized by 'the beast'.  Rev. 18:4
Psalms 37:12 'The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth. The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming'

Sandy Hook child "victim" Avielle Richman's father is conveniently a neuroscientist. He started a foundation after the shooting, of course, and its focus is to develop criteria to screen and treat children as young as in utero for violent and/or depressive tendencies.
