Substance Abuse Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA)

SAMHSA was established in 1992 and directed by Congress to target effectively substance abuse and mental health services to the people most in need and to translate research in these areas more effectively and more rapidly into the general health care system. Over the years SAMHSA has demonstrated that – prevention works, treatment is effective, and people recover from mental and substance use disorders. Behavioral health services improve health status and reduce health care and other costs to society. Continued improvement in the delivery and financing of prevention, treatment and recovery support services provides a cost effective opportunity to advance and protect the Nation’s health.

The National Resource Center on Domestic Violence

Domestic violence should never, ever happen.  No one should abuse anyone, ever.

Unfortunately, it does occur, and there has to be ways to help overcome the madness that domestic violence is.

The National Resource Center on Domestic Violence is one of those ways to overcome.  It is the NRCDV’s mission to improve societal and community responses to domestic violence and, ultimately, prevent its occurrence. We provide a wide range of free, comprehensive, and individualized technical assistance, training, and specialized resource materials and projects designed to enhance current intervention and prevention strategies.

Eugenics: Three Generations, NO Imbeciles

From psychcentral.com/blog which is highly recommended of course, if you haven’t read them, come many different and various blogs dealing with many facets of psychology.

I recently read a blog by Margarita Tartakovsky, M.S., on the psychcentral blog World of Psychology discussing Eugenics and Carrie Buck, who was a woman who was sterilized in 1927 in the State of Virginia because some viewed her and her family as imbeciles and that they should not reproduce.

Horrendous as this is, considering no one knows how a person will turn out, regardless of his or her environment or hereditary issues–many “higher ups” in society considered eugenics to be the right thing to do.

Read more about eugenics on this website.
