This is what a serious public health effort and good screening can do. Public health professionals just don't get enough credit.

Hmmm. Strategic retreat? Attempt to whip the troops into shape?

Humm. Just noticed that the "circles" button on the left has disappeared. How does one edit and re-order circles now?

Did you ever imagine what the expression "asshat" would look like in real life?

Reshared from my stream. Man, I really hate this no cross-posting to communities thing. G+ needs to fix that.
 
This is bad law. It's going to create a scare among the people who are already skittish about treatment but are often highest risk, namely older white men. It erodes confidentiality. The mandate is vague, and there's just enough room for mental health professionals to get worried about liability, which has a remarkable way of lowering the IQ of even very smart people. We would have been a lot better off with public health interventions, education, and perhaps outpatient commitment systems to supplement inpatient commitment.

+Patrick Carroll It'll be interesting to see how that works, both practically and legally.  Also whether they do a single office in Albany or if New York City will have its own separate infrastructure.

Thank you for spreading the word about this.  It's important for people to know about this section of New York's new law and to prevent something like from becoming Federal law either through congress or through Executive Order.  

Mental health care should be addressed, but in the manner you suggest.

O, Irony. Sappy post with poem about "inner beauty" affixed to a pic of a 6'2" freakshow with a single-digit BMI whose ovaries shut down some 5 years ago.

Story
Tagline
Dad, Psychiatrist, Pain Doc
Introduction
I'm a transplanted Southerner living in Charm City. 

I'm a psychiatrist, and I take care of patients who have sickle cell disease, a rare and painful genetic condition.  I also treat people with other pain disorders.

I married a brilliant woman who also happens to be a psychiatrist and we have two high-maintenance kids. I seldom post much about my personal life, though.

I like heavy music, favorite bands (mostly from back in the day) are Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Helmet, Rites of Spring, Ministry, Rammstein, A Perfect Circle, the Deftones, Chevelle, and Big Black. 

I cook a lot. I very much like anything braised and involving pig. When I first started on Google+ I expected I would be swapping recipes all the time. I then realized it takes a ridiculous amount of time to type a recipe into one of those little "Share" boxes and left that to the people who know what they're doing like +Shinae Nae. 

I love a good cocktail, and in honor of the civilized tradition of the #cocktailhour I generally post a recipe for a refreshing adult beverage every Friday.

I tend to get involved in discussions about politics (I seem to hit about center-left, but get along fine with most libertarians), religion, philosophy, and occasionally gender relations. I like people who can think and talk like grown-ups and don't think lobbing grenades at people who disagree with them is a way to settle anything. 

My work being how it is, I'm not a terribly prolific poster myself, but when I do it tends to be about domestic policy and my various adventures in the insanity of the American health care system. 
Bragging rights
I managed to stay in school for over 20 years (=GenX Win!), taught my kids to read, and (so far) they still like me.

I was planning to get a tattoo for a long time and the time finally came. What I had in mind had a particular meaning - not something that every frat boy you've ever met has. I started hunting around for a place with a good reputation. I wound up going to a place in a hipster neighborhood with a cool sign out and a lot of flash on the walls. I talked to the artist whose work seemed most like what I had in mind. I talked to him for about 5 minutes, he said he'd get back in touch, and a week or two later I gave up and started looking for somebody else. He did me a favor. I wound up finding Jacki. Her shop has no signs out, no generic tribal this's and tiger that's on posters on the walls. The stuff that is on her walls is obviously her work, and personal. She will sit down with you with a pencil and a pad. She will balance what you want with what works. What you get, nobody else will have. It will be good, and it will be done by somebody who obviously cares a whole lot about the quality of her work. You'll even learn some stuff. And she has good taste in music. Turns out what I had in mind wouldn't have worked. What I got was cleaner, simpler, and more like what I wanted than what I wanted. My second is just healing in. Jacki's just different. She put my first tattoo on and I expect she'll put on my last. (That guy I talked to at the other shop? Finally got back to me weeks later. What he did was jam two ideas I had together with no editing or thought. And added some color. It looked like crap.)

Hands down, best margaritas in Baltimore and a staff you start to love after one visit. We've been going for over ten years and never get tired of the place. When you go, find Nick - the friendly man with the big smile and the white hair behind the bar - and speak these magic words: "El Jefe, rocks, with salt." You will not be disappointed.
