If a citizen of Asgardia where to be diagnosed with a clinical psychological disorder that may be potentially lethal to them or anyone else aboard the ship, how should the situation be handled? (This is mainly based on citizens not yet diagnosed after already moving to Asgardia or those born in the space nation). Should a psychological health care center be opened up on Asgardia and what kind of prevention methods should be used to prevent these disorders?

Great topic! We should absolutly have psychological health care center(s). Preferably connected to/as a part of hospitals, for both in and out treatments. I would suggest developing a better screening processes for our young, where they actually get tested for many of the different conditions, at certain ages. Spontaneus suggestion: ...

It's my strong belief that there should be no hospitals whatsoever, but rather "Wellness Centers" that treat both psychiatric and physical disorders concurrenty. I also believe that there should never be any sort of restraints used in a psychiatric crisis. No handcuffs, no belts, no jackets, and definitely no electric ...

I'm liking the feedback on this subject! I agree that the patients should not be restrained or put under any unnecessary precautions that may prove detrimental to their well being and it's good to see that some people interested in moving to Asgardia in the future have training in these ...

Every person has a home doctor, but ... it would be far better if every person would also have a home psychologist. Grzt, Dirk.

I agree with you. A good psychologist is especially helpful when Asgardians will be off Earth, in to orbit, or even farther away. The minds of our citizens must remain healthy for these new environments.

On the note of restraints: I agree it should be kept to a minimal, but based on my own observations and conversations I had with both patients and doctors, for some conditions restraint may actually be prefered. It should not be a standard, but could be considerd for specific patients. ...

I think it's great, I think so, so that in the future we will not be surprised by infiltrators in Asgardia with proselytizing actions, just like the murderer of the Russian ambassador in Turkey, then I start to consider the importance of a mental health clinic in Asgardia , However ...

Yes, there will be a lot of stress and anxiety. Especially at first when the base itself is constructed. I'm hoping that those who may find stress now and in the future are able to clear their minds.

It is still a taboo with people to go by a psychologist, but as most people have enough physical help it is the psychology part that is now neglected. The world goes too fast and people can not follow it, that gives all sorts of mental problems. It are the ...

Going to a psychologist isn't very taboo anymore. Well, where I am at least it isn't. I'm not sure about other, states, regions, or countries.

I hope that Asgardians will become enlightened in every way possible, along with understanding people with mental disorders or other afflictions.

Jun 24, 01 / Jun 13, 17 09:25 UTC
Its a very good question. I myself im a psychologist, (behavioral cognitive & cognitive neurosciences orientation), but i think that more than focus on an individual level that diagnoses each isolated person, a good way of planning towards mental health on what i think could be a "society of the ...

ArturoTR : I agree 100%. Isolated 1-1 care is nearly impossible to provide, given that Asgardia's demographic survey on Facebook (unofficial, but still good to look at) shows that we only have 30 psychologists and about as many mental health workers. The trouble with the group approach is determining how ...

What ship/station? "I would suggest developing a better screening processes for our young." Good luck with that. Children are already over diagnosed as it is. With or without a family history. "I have another suggestion, but it's somewhat controversial. I believe that there should be NO "safe spaces" in Asgardia." ...

You should understand that there are people with psychological disorders. A large amount of those are depression and anxiety but some have much worse conditions. Psychologists would help keep those unable to cope (such as people now or in the future). You have to understand the wide range of ...

Aboslutely one or more should be opened up in Asgardia it is a requirement if we are to provide our citizens with healthcare as that refers to more than just medical health. As for the restraints they are better left in place, for the patients who would indeed harm themselves ...
