More information on the candidate.

Do you support school policies and funding that increase the availability of mental health services in schools and early childhood settings?
  • Yes and No! I support school programs that teach bonding. Not all but many issues can be resolved by bonding, friendship. There are mental health issues but let us start with the basics. Portugal has legalized drugs and reduce addiction by simply teaching addicts social skills. Why not start early?
Do you support additional funding for follow-up care for individuals after a suicide attempt or overdose?
  • It has been along time sense I have worked with a friend who attempted suicide. The core issue I was taught relates back to the first question. The person attempting suicide needs to get involved in life again. That bonding with other human beings.
Do you support extreme risk protection orders?
  • No: I know that you say that due process is protected but I see no evidence of that. Nor do I see how the law reverse itself after the crisis is gone or there is simply a false report. As written to date the answer has to be no.
