Bill Maher: The US ‘Not Built for Mental Health’ – ‘Kind of a Sick Country At Its Heart’

On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher argued that while the US needs improved mental health care, the US is “kind of a sick country” that is “too greedy,” and “built for money.”

Maher said, “When I hear people talk, as I have all week, after the shooting, about, well, mental health, and we definitely should have better mental health treatment. But, you know, this country is not built for mental health. It’s kind of a sick country at its heart. It’s way too greedy, get to macho mountain, competitive. It’s built for money. It’s not built to be happy.”

    While I’m not always a fan of Bill’s beliefs or style, I think in this situation he’s got it right. Money, desire to own guns and links to the NRA seem to be of priority to many in the USA. The healthcare and mental health systems have been broken for some time, and the ACA attempted to do some preliminary restructuring, but now much of that is also broken, with no new initiatives that will help the average American. We need to review and rewrite our laws and policies for mental health services, diagnoses, disclosures and the impact on weapons, employment and other areas of life.
