Should there be a Mental Health Visa to visit countries?

Guest Post By David Stephen

Several countries have business visas, start-up visas, talent visas and other categories positioned to attract choice people to them, but no nation has a mental health visa. The opportunity, mostly for one, is the possibility to host on-site and remote paths towards addressing mental health issues, globally.

A Country Should Have a Mental Health Visa?

There are substance abuse problems across nations of the world. There are mentally ill people on the streets in many nations of the world. There are also reports of anxiety, depression, trauma, mood disorder, self-harm and so forth, in many places even as smartphones come with their own advantages and disadvantages to the situation.

The service is the mind, for those who can come, including of measured experiences for care. For those who cannot travel, the service is also the mind, as well as paths to care.

The Mind

The human mind is where all mental health problems are based. But what is the structure and the function of the human mind? How does the mind determine depression, anxiety, cravings, mania, hallucination, irritation, delusion and so forth?

Also, the mind is the reason for drug use and abuse, not the brain. Whatever drugs or other addictions offer, reward, pleasure, stability, lightness and so forth, are all properties of the mind. No one takes drugs because of dopamine or serotonin. They do because of the experience provided by the mind.

So how does the mind make decisions for all experiences?

Psychedelics are buzzed as the next big thing in mental health with several studies highlighting the experiential outcomes of their ingestion, but how does the mind let hallucinogenic drugs have a shot, it is not told.

The purpose of a mental health visa is to provide the human mind, conceptually, as a service digitally and on-site, with programs, to those issued the visa, in a major economic push by any country that would take up the opportunity.

The mind is within the brain, but the mind is not the brain. The brain builds, structures or constructs the mind, but their functions, structures and components are different. Exploring a conceptual model of the mind, a first, as part of a national tech and economic program would be helpful and beneficial.

In brain science, all sensory inputs mostly land at the thalamus, the brainstem, the substantia nigra, and the olfactory bulb for smell. It is at these landing areas that senses are processed or integrated, before they are relayed to the cerebral cortex for interpretation.

It is theorized that sensory processing or integration in those landing areas is into a uniform unit or quantity, which is thought or in the form of thought. This becomes the version, equivalent or representative of all senses to the human mind. It is also how the brain creates the mind, or how consciousness begins its interaction with objects.

To the mind, all objects in the external world exist in the form of thought. Interpretation in the cerebral cortex is theorized to be knowing, feeling and reaction, a triage of properties. It is the quantity or thought, acquiring properties that determine any state of mental health or illness. Quantities and properties have several features.

Mental Health Visa

As uncertainty builds across continents around the economy, one way for a nation is to forge a new path towards possibilities. There are hundreds to thousands of displays of the components of the human mind for various states and experiences. For any country that takes this up, it would become an advantage, for the economy, health and more, within this decade and beyond.
