  1. Huh, yet no mention of another good Exective Order signed by our President today, this one regarding pricing discloser and transparency.

  2. EVERYONE already has access to ALL types of Healthcare … When you need a doctor, you just call them and make an appointment. What you're talking about is getting treated and having someone else pay for it.

  3. Mental health is a level of psychological well-being or an absence of mental illness – the state of someone who is "functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioral adjustment".

    From the perspectives of positive psychology or of holism, mental health may include an individual's ability to enjoy life, and to create a balance between life activities and efforts to achieve psychological resilience.

    According to the World Health Organization (WHO), mental health includes "subjective well-being, perceived self-efficacy, autonomy, competence, inter-generational dependence, and self-actualization of one's intellectual and emotional potential, among others."

    The WHO further states that the well-being of an individual is encompassed in the realization of their abilities, coping with normal stresses of life, productive work and contribution to their community.

    Cultural differences, subjective assessments, and competing professional theories all affect how one defines "mental health".
