DAILY SPECIAL
 
Houston Chronicle
March 21, 2016
 
In 2009, a team of researchers set out to answer one of the thorniest questions at the intersection of mental health policy and race: Is the practice of involuntary outpatient commitment used more often with African-Americans than whites? And if so, what does that mean?

Americans are slowly starting to consider mental disorders as true illnesses, Jaccard said. She added that, because the Affordable Care Act has made mental health care more accessible, more people are seeking help for mental-health issues. Yet, despite these signs of progress, biases have persisted for decades.

Amid the so-called replication crisis, could better investigative reporting be the answer? Maybe it’s time for journalists and scientists to work more closely together.

 

 
TEXAS
 
Texas Observer

Long considered perhaps the toughest of tough-on-crime states, Texas finds itself in 2016 in a remarkable position: An increasingly strong bipartisan coalition is pushing for reforms to the criminal justice system. On the agenda are changes that would have been unthinkable back when Democratic Governor Ann Richards led the charge to triple the size of the state’s prison system, touting prisons as rural economic development.
 
 
Lifeworks
March 2016
 
Despite the growing interest in the experiences of foster youth, relatively little is known about how foster youth differ from other at-risk youth who have no history of foster care involvement. The goal of the current report is to address this gap in the literature, by providing an in-depth look at how transition-age foster youth compare to other at-risk youth of a similar age across a wide variety of characteristics.

As part of our occasional series of interviews with members of Congress, MedPage Today News Editor Joyce Frieden sat down with Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) last week at his office to discuss his views on repealing the Affordable Care Act, high drug prices, and other healthcare issues.

Washington Post

After Jamycheal Mitchell was arrested for stealing $5 worth of snacks last April, a judge ordered the mentally ill Portsmouth, Va., man to undergo treatment at a state hospital until he was well enough to face trial. But for four months Mitchell wasted away in a cell at the Hampton Roads Regional Jail.

With mothers and medical providers clamoring for answers about postpartum depression, scientists are beginning a major effort to understand the genetic underpinnings of mood disorders that afflict millions of women during and after pregnancy.

Mississippi has gotten a lot of bad press in the past year for its in-school corporal-punishment practices, which is perhaps one reason its State Board of Education announced last week its plans to propose its first-ever policy regulating the restraint and seclusion of students, according to the Associated Press.
 

HEALTHCARE REFORM
 
Kaiser Health News
March 22, 2016
 
What’s more harmful to patients being treated for drug or alcohol abuse: risking their health by keeping other medical providers in the dark about their substance abuse treatment? Or risking their jobs, homes and child custody arrangements by allowing potentially damaging treatment details to be electronically shared among an array of medical providers?

OPINION
 
American Enterprise Institute
March 21, 2016
 
The lesson of downsizing state psychiatric facilities — no less powerful for being familiar — is that good intentions are not enough. To understand a key source of the problem, we should compare severe mental illness to “mental health.”

Talking about anxiety or depression often involves sitting in a circle in a badly lit room, Let’s Go Mental aims to be different.
 
 
Neuroskeptic
March 19, 2016
 
Today we hear a lot about scientific data – data sharing, data integrity, and Big Data, are all hot topics in science. Yet is science really about “data”? Did scientists in the past talk about it as much as we do?
