Mental Health Watchdog Reviews Statewide Campaign to Protect Children

There were 32,763 involuntary examinations initiated on children in Florida during 2016-2017 according the Baker Act Reporting Center.

CCHR Florida

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights launched a statewide campaign in 2016 to prevent unjust involuntary examinations of children under the Baker Act.

Our organization receives regular calls from the parents of children that have been Baker Acted without their knowledge and In our opinion this is a violation of their rights.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Following the publishing of the Annual Baker Act Report in June of this year, the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) reviewed their campaign to protect children from abusive use of the mental health law, commonly referred to as the Baker Act.

Viewed as a statewide crisis, there were 32,763 involuntary examinations initiated on children during 2016-2017 according the Baker Act Reporting Center. [1]

“Our organization receives regular calls from the parents of children that have been Baker Acted without their knowledge,” said Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida. “In our opinion this is a violation of the rights of the child and the parent and something must be done.”

Taking action to protect children and put an end to this abuse, CCHR, a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the eradication of abuses committed under the guise of mental health, began educating families on their rights reaching over 184,000 families with information on the Baker Act as well as providing them with a form designed to help prevent unjust involuntary examination. The form makes it clear that the parent/guardian is not relinquishing their parental rights and also clearly states that the parent is not giving permission for a psychiatric examination of their child for any purpose. The basis for the form is the mental health law itself, which, provides for a willing family member to help a person who is in crisis rather than initiating a Baker Act.

“The criteria for involuntary examination exist to protect the rights of all Floridians and this includes children,” said Stein.

The Baker Act law covers all aspects of mental health including involuntary examination and commitment. Originally designed to prevent the indiscriminate incarceration of individuals without just cause, this statute was named after Maxine Baker, the former State Representative from Miami who sponsored the Act and who stated, “In the name of mental health, we deprive them of their most precious possession – liberty.” However, over the years, the Act that was intended to protect and preserve the liberties of those people labeled as mentally ill has instead become a human rights abuse.

CCHR’s campaign educates families on their rights at local events and at free seminars delivered at their headquarters located in downtown Clearwater. Concerned parents are encouraged to contact CCHR to learn more about their rights under the law at 800-782-2878 and to sign a petition asking Florida lawmakers to amend the Baker Act.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit, www.cchrflorida.org

The Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), is hosting a seminar on ADHD with Child Education Specialist, Sharon Hillestad.

Currently there are approximately 1.8 million children between the ages of 12-17 in the United States who are taking prescription psychotropic drugs, largely to treat difficulties with study. ”

— Citizens Commission on Human Rights

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Prompted by new information on the use of psychotropic drugs to treat childhood difficulties in school, the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), is hosting a seminar on ADHD with Child Education Specialist, Sharon Hillestad.

During the seminar Ms. Hillestad will cover the tests used to diagnose ADHD, alternative treatment options, the signs of a child who isn’t doing well in school and how all of this can be addressed with healthy, safe methods.

Currently there are approximately 1.8 million children between the ages of 12-17 in the United States who are taking prescription psychotropic drugs, largely to treat difficulties with study.

One of the common psychostimulants used to treat ADHD, methylphenidate is a Schedule II drug, meaning the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has classified it as having a high potential for abuse. Additionally, the DEA warns that methylphenidate produces many of the same effects as cocaine. Psychotic episodes and severe psychological addiction have all been associated with methylphenidate abuse. The side effects for Ritalin (methylphenidate hcl), include nervousness, agitation, and anxiety as the top 3 listed effects, as well as psychosis. [1] [2]

For more information or to find out when the next educational briefing will be held, please call CCHR at (727) 442-8820 or visit the center at 109 N. Fort Harrison Ave, Clearwater, Florida.

FBI to Howe: Why Was the Lee Port Authority Police Report Not Shown to Judge in Enterprise National Car Rental Hearing?

David E. Howe outside of FBI Headquarters, Washington, 09/17/2018

David E. Howe outside of FBI Headquarters, Washington, 09/17/2018

‘Ding and dent’ victim travels to Washington to provide an on-the-record interview of rental nightmare with the FBI while also making rounds on Capitol Hill

Let the sunshine shine and may the power forever rest with the people”

— David Howe, SubscriberWise founder and CEO

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, September 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the confirmation of a recorded interview between SubscriberWise founder and an agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The interview included the allegations of the ‘ding and dent’ incident in October 2016, but with a focus on the two public records which profoundly expose significant concerns regarding substantial financial consumer threats for lawmakers, media, and the renting public here and around the world to ponder and consider urgently and carefully.

See: http://www.einpresswire.com/newsroom/subscriberwise_newsroom/ for related news and images.

Specifically the two public records that were referenced for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and available to anyone through Florida’s broad ‘Sunshine Law’ ( http://myfloridalegal.com/pages.nsf/Main/DC0B20B7DC22B7418525791B006A54E4 ) are the official ‘Lee County Port Authority Police Report’ (Case No. 2016000055203) and the official ‘County Court of the Twentieth Judicial Circuit in and for Lee County Florida’ (Case No. 2018-SC-001768), Honorable Archie B. Hayward Jr.

The interview was conducted on Monday September 17, 2018, in the nation’s Capital and followed visits to the Office of the Honorable United States Senator Sherrod Brown, the Office of the Honorable Charles Schumer, the Office of the Honorable Elizabeth Warren, and the Office of the Honorable Bob Nelson of the great state of Florida — where Howe is a part-time seasonal resident and homeowner.

For the record, Howe is a native Ohioan and therefore intends to focus his legislative efforts to obtain ‘predictable and uniform car rental standards’ which are so desperately needed, with his constituent Senator, and who Howe supports and voted for 100 percent of the time, the Honorable Sherrod Brown of the great state of Ohio.

“I want to thank the FBI for taking time to record my testimony. Of course, I also want to thank the United States Senators’ staff members who were each so gracious in their welcoming, as well as their care, concern, and effort to record my concerns seriously. Moreover, let the record reflect the gratitude to the law enforcement professionals that I had the pleasure to interact with during my visit to the Senate Office Buildings and beyond. Each and every encounter proved accommodating, entirely respectful, and most importantly, helpful as I made my way around Washington, D.C. to empower our government with information so long desired but so difficult to obtain.

“Yesterday, that all changed as agencies across DC and beyond were empowered and enlightened,” Howe confirmed.

“Regarding the FBI interview, I was given an ample opportunity to articulate a number of important details for the encounter in late October 2016, at the Fort Myers SW FL International Airport, National Car Rental airport location. And that’s exactly what I tried to accomplish to the best of my ability,” Howe said. “But I had one primary request for the FBI that I repeated and urged a number of times. I requested agents from the Naples, FL, FBI office travel to the airport and obtain the Official Lee County Port Authority Police Department report with its myriad of facts, testimony, photographs, and more. And once obtained along with the hard evidence from an exhaustive investigation complied by a dedicated and highly-professional Lee Port Authority Police Officer, including sworn witness testimony and the high-definition photographic evidence, I requested the agents obtain the official court trial transcript – AND MOST IMPORTANTLY ITEMS EXHIBITED AT TRIAL AND NOW DOCKETED ON THE PERMANENT PUBLIC RECORD — and compare the two and the sworn testimony forever recorded for the world to evaluate, know, and ultimately criticize with rage and fervor at an injustice of high magnitude and profound concern indeed. And the same can be said about the obvious manipulation and cover-up so readily apparent to anyone who bothers to read the two reports,” Howe remarked

“Why. Because the contradictions really are remarkable. And undeniable. Literally.

“Yes, they are breathtaking. The story concocted is undeniable to all when compared to the mountain of evidence and the substantiating Lee Port Authority Police report – all of which was intentionally and aggressively objected to; all of which was kept far from Judge Hayward’s discerning eyes. No matter now,” continued Howe. “Because one involved the facts from an independent police investigation, including sworn testimony from the primary witnesses involved. Those facts, and in particular the under-oath contradictions – also known as perjury in the state of Florida ( http://www.leg.state.fl.us/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&URL=0800-0899/0837/Sections/0837.02.html ) – can no longer be dismissed or argued out-of-hand when compared to the other item, the Lee civil court testimony taken, of course, under-oath.

“Yes, the facts and testimony, they are now in the light of day and they can never be altered or taken back to fit a narrative that the defense would have us all believe in court, was the truth,” Howe proclaimed.

“But there was one question that the FBI agent asked me a few times,” Howe stated. “And that question was ‘why didn’t you give the police report to the Judge?’ In fact, without ready access to the court transcript to recite the numerous objections verbatim, it was my impression that the agent believed I was exaggerating this point. To the agent, it just didn’t seem plausible that an official police investigation would not get the careful scrutiny of a court of law – most notably a ‘small claim’ court where the merits of the case should trump the complex rules of civil procedure the defense attorney — in grand pleasure — was able to play to his radically unfair advantage. Nevertheless, it was a keen observation from my perspective, that the agent asked before I had the opportunity to stress this otherwise critical point.

“To be clear, that’s the critical point that every reasonable person would ask…why WOULD any ETHICAL company conducting business appropriately — and without anything unfair, deceptive, or abusive, to conceal — make such an extraordinary effort to keep a judge from reading the profound and extraordinary investigative effort of a fellow law enforcement officer sworn himself to uphold the law – a task he performed diligently and exactly in line with the oath he made to the people and visitors to Lee County, Fl,” Howe added.

“And to be sure, my answer to the question was ‘EXACTLY’,” Howe emphasized. “Yes, it simply begs the question why would any organization not want a court of law to consider an exhaustive police investigation, particularly since the same witness who was testifying in front of the Honorable Archie B. Hayward Jr., who presided over the small claims hearing, was also under-oath when he proffered a witness statement to Lee Police. The answer, hardly a surprise, is that Enterprise consistently objected to the police report as ‘hearsay’ – as well as every single item of audio and video evidence I had to prove the case – but for a single audio clip confirming the money pursuit.

“Why?

“It’s obvious,” Howe stressed.

“Because the police investigation and all that was detailed and exposed simply couldn’t align with the grand fairy-story that was offered to the Lee Clerk of the Court and the people of the nation and the world,” Howe confirmed.
“Fortunately, though, for the truth and the facts of the matter, I’ve had some very powerful and some very informed allies through this process. And much of it from law enforcement professionals from Maryland to California who have delivered both direct and indirect aid and information to expose the consumer harm that is ever apparent,” confirmed Howe.

“So yes, I’m both pleased and relived to have effectively passed the Baton now that all the evidence is finally on the table – including now two public records each containing sworn testimony – and no longer mere allegations from the victim – to state and federal law enforcement, as well as major media outlets. In other words, the details, the evidence, the facts, and most importantly, the TRUTH can never be concealed.
Praise justice! The public will forever remain informed and aware. The public will understand the risks are real and the need to protect oneself is dramatic. But, thankfully, no human effort will every erase the public record and the bad acts contained therein.

“Let the sunshine shine and may the power forever rest with the people,” Howe concluded.

Fargo Moorhead Insurance Discusses the Need for Commercial Car Insurance

FM Insurance provides excellent coverage for car insurance in the Fargo, ND area. Excellent rates and great customer service for all home, auto and business/commercial insurance needs.

With the growth of Uber, Lyft and other services, more people are using their own vehicles for part-time work.

FARGO, ND, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the growth of Uber, Lyft and other services, more people are using their own vehicles for part-time work. Others provide pizza delivery service or other services which require them to use their vehicle as part of the job. Fargo Moorhead Insurance recognizes that this change makes getting the right car insurance important and often more confusing. It is important to ensure the driver is adequately insured before they use their vehicle to transport others.

With services like Uber and Lyft, the driver uses their own vehicle which is normally reserved for personal use. They are transporting other people in their vehicle which makes them liable if they are involved in an accident and it is their fault. It is imperative that the driver have the right amount and type of insurance, according to Fargo Moorhead Insurance, a provider of car insurance in Fargo and Moorhead. The typical driver of a passenger vehicle will get a personal car insurance policy, which provides adequate coverage for their needs. However, some drivers may need commercial insurance if they use their vehicle for work. Personal policies will not pay for accidents when the driver is using the vehicle for work use. If a person has the wrong kind of insurance when they are in an accident, their claim may be denied.

"Driving services like Uber are still relatively new, and many people don't realize how they need to be insured," says a spokesperson for Fargo Moorhead Insurance. They recommend that drivers talk to an insurance agent whenever they get a job where they use their personal vehicle. It can be determined based on the specifics of the job whether they need a commercial policy or if their personal policy will provide adequate coverage. There may be differences between carriers about when a commercial policy is necessary versus a personal policy. However, the basic standards are set by regulations. Many drivers do not realize they need to carry commercial insurance even if they are delivering newspapers or other goods. A person who has a vehicle that is equipped with snowplowing equipment or with cooking equipment such as for food trucks may need to buy a commercial policy as well. Those with altered suspensions and racing equipment may be considered commercial. If the vehicle is rented by another person or registered to a business entity, the driver will likely need a commercial policy.

Commercial insurance policies usually have higher limits which can be beneficial in a claim. The rates may be higher since the risk for an accident can also be higher. Many agencies require policies to have limits that are higher than the state’s required minimum coverage. As more people choose careers or part-time jobs which require the use of their personal vehicle, it becomes more important to understand what kind of car insurance is needed to protect them and their assets if an accident should occur. It is best to talk to a knowledgeable insurance agent and get car insurance quotes for the type of policy that fits their situation.

Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy Addresses Worldwide Thyroid USP Hormone Prescription Deficiency

Recently, there has been a worldwide deficiency in Thyroid USP causing many suppliers to desperately find a replacement source for thyroid disorder sufferers.

There are a couple of good options now to replace the Thyroid USP deficiency. Our pharmacy formulated and offers a unique option.”

— Dan Fucarino, Owner and Lead Pharmacist

TAMPA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Recently, there has been a worldwide deficiency in Thyroid USP causing many chemical suppliers to desperately find a replacement source for thyroid disorder sufferers. Over 7 years ago, Armour Thyroid, the largest supplier of Thyroid USP in the country, changed the fillers in their product. Almost immediately, many people began to complain about the side effects and sensitivities they were experiencing. Within months, the company had to discontinue this new formula, but it took over two years before the original formulation of this product was available again. It was during this time that many patients switched to Thyroid USP compounded. One supplier began dispatching a Thyroid USP from China only to have it recalled by the FDA due to product contamination. For many years now, Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy has been able to get the Thyroid USP from a very reliable source until last year when it became extremely rare and then quickly became impossible to find.
Carrollwood Compounding Center set out to find a solution and is now successfully providing another source to their patients in the Tampa Bay Area without contamination or adverse side effects. First, Carrollwood Compounding Center makes sure they only use the highest quality ingredients on the market. They purchase their chemicals from only two trusted, reliable chemical wholesalers. The reason Carrollwood Compounding Center only works with these two companies is because these wholesalers never distribute a product until it goes through rigorous analysis testing to determine the purity and potency of the chemicals. After 32 years in business, Carrollwood Compounding Pharmacy is proud to say they have never had to recall a product and plan to keep it that way by not sourcing through cheaper, lower quality distributors.
Carrollwood Compounding Center also only uses an inert filler, PH-105 Avicel, and they have never experienced a negative reaction. Some patients have switched to a combination of both T3 and T4 synthetic to find a harmonious balance for their thyroid. Since Thyroid USP is a natural product, it is derived from pig thyroid and is desiccated. Carrollwood Compounding Center uses the alternative combination of T3-liothyronine and T4-levothyroxine as a synthetic drug replacement. They also formulated it with a sustained release by adding an inert ingredient called Methylcellulose. Although this medication is not natural, it mimics the T3 and T4 hormones exactly as your body would make it.
“There are a couple of good options now to replace the Thyroid USP deficiency” says Dan Fucarino, owner and lead pharmacist of Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy. “One option would be to try using the commercial thyroid prescriptions now available like Armour Thyroid, NatureThroid, NP Thyroid and WP Thyroid. I would say these are good options because all these companies are aware of the history of Armour Thyroid and have made their product as inert and hypoallergenic as possible. Most patients are still hesitant to try them again because they are afraid they will have the same reaction as they did before which is why our pharmacy formulated and offers a unique option.”
Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy is located in Tampa, Florida. They feature a State-of-the-Art compounding center with complete sterile facilities. They specialize in prescriptions, female and male hormone replacement therapy, and veterinary compounding. Carrollwood Pharmacy is a family owned, independent pharmacy that has been in business since 1965.

Medicaid Claims Study Shows Significant Cost Savings & Nearly 5x ROI via myStrength’s Digital Behavioral Health Platform

Medicare Claims Study Shows Decrease in Healthcare Costs with Digital Tools

Peer-reviewed All-Cause Claims Study Validates Decrease in Health Care Costs with Digital Behavioral Health Care. Results Featured in Upcoming Webinar.

The evaluation shows a conservative estimate of nearly $5 in direct medical cost savings for every dollar spent on the myStrength initiative.”

— Sese Abhulimen, Managing Director of Propensity4

DENVER, CO, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — myStrength, Inc., an innovative leader in digital behavioral health care, today announces the publication of results from a claims-based return on investment (ROI) evaluation of a statewide initiative in Missouri in the Journal of Medical Economics.

Mental illnesses are considered the costliest health care conditions,1 exceeding the costs of diabetes, respiratory disorders, and cancer – combined.2 To help address this, myStrength partnered with the Missouri Department of Mental Health, the Missouri Coalition for Community Behavioral Healthcare, the Missouri Foundation for Health as well as an independent analytics firm to analyze the impact of technology on Medicaid health care claims costs, both physical and behavioral, over a two-year period.

Nearly 859,000 people in the state of Missouri experienced some form of mental illness in 2014, yet 55% of those did not receive treatment. Approximately 419,000 people in Missouri struggled with a substance use disorder in 2016, with 84% not receiving treatment. The result of this treatment gap is an estimated $250 million annual cost burden in direct medical costs of untreated substance use disorders and mental health, just in 2016.

Since 2016, the Missouri Coalition for Community Behavioral Healthcare has partnered with myStrength to dramatically increase access to mental health services throughout the state. Thanks to a generous grant from the Missouri Foundation for Health, 25 community behavioral health providers with more than 150 facilities throughout Missouri have access to myStrength’s evidence-based web- and mobile-based resources. These applications complement the mental health and addictions treatment, primary care, and prevention services already offered by the state’s community behavioral health providers to more than 250,000 adults, children and families statewide.

About the Study
Ongoing evaluation of outcomes improvement and cost reductions was critical to the launch of myStrength across the state of Missouri. To evaluate the economic impact, several parties including the Missouri Department of Mental Health, engaged in a unique claims analysis. The pioneering, comprehensive study demonstrates digital behavioral health care’s ROI and quantifies its per person average annual cost savings segmented by physical and behavioral health care, in addition to the impact of evidence-based technology solutions on total adjudicated claims. Spanning two years, the study compared Medicaid claims among more than 1,500 individuals and facilitated access to myStrength across 25 Missouri community mental health centers to help clients address a wide variety of behavioral health and substance use concerns.

Results
Results of the statewide evaluation, just published in the Journal of Medical Economics, tell a conclusive story about the economic value of bringing myStrength to the state of Missouri. Augmenting behavioral health offerings to include digital behavioral self-care tools is proven to generate positive ROI via reduced total cost of care.

“The evaluation shows a conservative estimate of nearly $5 in direct medical cost savings for every dollar spent on the myStrength initiative. Medicaid costs were $382/year lower for each myStrength user than for non-users – with about 75% of the savings coming from high-cost, avoidable care like ER visits and inpatient admissions, and the other 25% from reduced outpatient and therapy expenditures,” explained methodologist Sese Abhulimen, Managing Director of Propensity4, the unaffiliated advanced analytics firm that conducted the evaluation.

“myStrength’s digital platform is a force multiplier, augmenting face-to-face clinical interactions by delivering evidence-based resources packaged within an empowering self-care solution,” noted Dr. Joe Parks, Medical Director for the National Council for Behavioral Health. “Multi-channel and multi-touch behavioral health care is necessary to drive real change. myStrength has created real value in Missouri, as evidenced by this study.”

myStrength users also shared their positive experiences. “It has been motivating, inspiring, relaxing, and relieving to know I’m not alone. I recommend it to everyone I know,” shared one myStrength user (name withheld to protect confidentiality). Says another, “There is always a helpful suggestion to get me through the rough patches. I love the variety of choices I have to choose from.”

“We are striving to build a 21st century behavioral health solution that empowers individuals, increases access to care and, at the same time, is economically efficient,” explained Abigail Hirsch, PhD, myStrength’s Chief Clinical Officer and co-author of the study. “The results we are seeing in Missouri underscore the potency of our approach.”
