March 2nd EdWatch Event
The Dangers of Universal Mental Health Screening
Legislation in Minnesota
Mental health screening legislation will affect all Minnesota children
in public, private, and home schools.
Be informed. Learn what you can do.
Thursday March 2, 2006

Co-sponsored by The Minnesota Family Council

The Minnesota legislature is considering universal mental health screening for K-12, pre-school, all kids at least once by age three, and infants. Mental Health screening is subjective and inaccurate in children. Diagnoses very often reflect simple behavioral issues or politically incorrect attitudes and values. Powerful medications with serious side effects are almost always used as the treatment.
