Mental Health Screening has had its share of controversy. Upon the eve of Teenscreen ending in the United States, we have the Federal Health Bill which includes many more programs to mental health screen every single generation.

It’s time to look at how your physical health affects your mind. Historically, if you had any “mental illness” type symptoms, you were either deemed crazy, sent to a shrink, locked up or all three. But where are those “mental” symptoms coming from? Is it logical to think that they randomly appear out of nowhere? Of course not. It is logical that the human body can develop a physical ailment or deficiency which could be detrimental to your mental well-being.
