Pediatric P.S.Y.C.H. (Stage 1)
Building good health habits starts before children are born. The young brain is a sponge that soaks up the skills and abilities that we teach it.
Pediatric P.S.Y.C.H. is designed to start healthy eating earlier, teach safety, practice coping skills, and build health leaders from the start. There is no drawback to providing universal health care in children. In time, it will be the model that can be extrapolated to everyone else.
Bridging P.S.Y.C.H. (Stage 2-A)
How we treat the less fortunate and the chronically ill is a direct reflection of us as a society.
With the number of congenital and genetically inherited conditions that can afflict the human body, providing comprehensive lifelong care can be done in an efficient wrap-around manner, which will save money and improve quality of life.
Geriatric P.S.Y.C.H. (Stage 3)
After decades of working to make this country the best nation on the planet, one deserves to enjoy reflection, relaxation, rest, and support.
With the aging of the American population and lack of service providers, an integrated care model that incorporates mind, body, and spirit will be more important than ever. Coupled with a proactive approach to monitoring health and wellness, Geriatric P.S.Y.C.H. improves quality of life and the quality of death.
"I believe the children are our future."
P.S.Y.C.H. is an evolving school of thought, born from observations over the years, that seeks to improve health care delivery, decrease mental health stigma, improve the inclusion of mental health as a standard in the health care field, and actively involve everyone in making an efficient and useful health care delivery system.
One key difference that makes P.S.Y.C.H. feasible is its implementation strategy. We start by creating a the system for children first.
Adult P.S.Y.C.H. (Stage 4)
As adults, we have very strong opinions about the health care debacle we find ourselves in.
While it's hard to agree on the right step, we all can recognize that giving money to private companies for half the care we expect isn't the most prudent or efficient course. After learning the pitfalls of running a universal health plan for kids, the chronically ill, and the elderly, Adult P.S.Y.C.H. will likely create itself. We just need time, patience, and will.
Military P.S.Y.C.H. (Stage 2-B)
How we treat the the men and women who serve our country is a direct reflection of us as a society.
Undergoing education, training, deployment, and returning home can be a traumatic experience for soldiers. Upon discharge from the military, allowing soldiers local access to a universal system is key to addressing post-deployment concerns and reintegrating them into the general population.
