Healthcare Is Mental

As a society, there are several issue areas that we take very seriously and have allocated resources, time, and legislative power to assure these remain intact. These issues include, but are not limited to, military spending, public infrastructure, and healthcare. It doesn’t take a political scientist to understand that we spend billions to fund our nation’s armed forces.

In fact, in the U.S. fiscal year 2015, military spending accounted for 54% of all federal discretionary spending, totaling $598 billion. Without diving into the can of worms that is defense budgets, we can discern that America cares about maintaining a strong, well-funded military, but the inconvenient truth is that in placing priority on one aspect of American life, we’ve disregarded countless others, namely mental health

When you hear the phrase “mental health,” you almost immediately scan the room to seek out the suspicious character who uttered those words because this concept has become so taboo that we are fearful of even mentioning it. If we’re not walking on egg shells when discussing mental wellness, we’re judging individuals for sharing with us, or others, that they struggle with their own mental health.

It’s strange and upsetting that because we cannot see someone suffering, i.e. sitting in a wheelchair or exhibiting other external symptoms, we assume that everything is perfectly fine. We couldn’t be further from the truth. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, approximately one in five adults in the U.S. — 43.8 million, or 18.5%, experiences mental illness in a given year, and the statistics are even more prevalent in children aged 13-18 (21.4%). 

Multi-Trillion Dollar Industry Providing Massive Opportunity in 2019 & Beyond

Whether we realize it, or we’ve elected to remain blind to the facts, it changes nothing. People struggling mental illness need to be afforded the same rights and access to resources and treatment as an individual diagnoses with any other disease or ailment. It does not matter how severe one’s diagnosis may be, we deserve to live happy, healthy lives, and America’s current infrastructure is not meeting the demands of individuals in need of support.

According to NAMI statistics, serious mental illness costs America $193.2 billion in lost earnings per year, which should serve as a wake up call to business owners that if they want to maintain profit margins, they should take care of their staff. 

Luckily, there are companies, albeit few, in the healthcare industry that take mental illness seriously and are taking the necessary steps to give their patients access to affordable, qualitative mental healthcare. 

Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) / (6PH.F) is a Canadian publicly traded company focused on developing innovative approaches that combine human skill-based expertise with emerging technologies to provide the best possible care options for their patients. The Company announced earlier this week the launch of a technology enabled mental health initiative. 

The initiative will focus on providing app enabled mental health counseling for patients in urban centers and remote and underserved populations.  Dr. Tahmeena Ali and Dr. Robert McKenzie are two Vancouver-based family physicians with extensive experience in mental health care and will be championing the initiative.

Following the announcement, Dr. Essam Hamza, CEO of Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) / (6PH.F), commented, “Having the ability to offer virtual mental health counselling services is pivotal to our patient-centric app. Through my own practice I have encountered a significant number of teens and young adults who would much rather use virtual services from the comfort of their home than come in person and wait in a busy waiting room to talk about their mental health. The need is there, and Premier Health, working alongside Dr. Ali and Dr. McKenzie, will develop the tools and framework to be able to overcome the barriers associated with mental health treatment.”

Through the use of Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) / (6PH.F)‘s private and secure online video platform, patients will now be able to book sessions with experienced mental health professionals and be seen from anywhere in the world. The Company will also be focusing on providing access to mental health to underserved and under privileged communities, which due to geography and the scarcity of mental health professionals, have previously been overlooked

Where Will Oil Go After This Week’s Price Hit?

oil and gas news

Even though oil had been taking a beating over the last 2 trading sessions, its price rose to $69 per barrel on Friday. However, oil prices are experiencing the worst week of 2019 mainly due to potential economic slowdown and ever-growing oil inventories. US oil inventories have not been this high since July of 2017. And to top it all off, the trade war between the US and China is growing wearier every day further affecting oil prices.

Naeem Aslam, the chief market analyst at TF Global Markets, stated, “Clearly, bargain hunters are back in town.” He later added, “However, it is still set to record the worst week of the year and this is due to the increase in trade war tensions between the U.S. and China.”

Global Scale

The global benchmark for oil, Brent Crude, has experienced a decrease of 5 percent this week. However, Brent Crude this morning climbed $0.98 to value each barrel at $68.74. Due to US sanctions and voluntary supply cuts, a floor under prices held. Market analysts are expecting the oil market to recover off of the price floor.

“It is reasonable to doubt whether Saudi Arabia will be willing to step up its output given the latest decline in prices, […] we therefore expect to see higher oil prices again in the near future,” Explain analysts at Commerzbank.

In order to make the market tighter, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries has been cutting oil supplies since the beginning of the year. 

Brent Crude’s prices reflect that the supply and demand of oil is tightly knit. According to UBS, Brent Crude should get back to $75 this month as supply gets tighter and tighter.

“Compliance of OPEC and its allies to the production cut deal remains high, while production from Iran and Venezuela is likely to again trend lower this month,” explains analyst Giovanni Staunovo,

Threats to people’s lives are constantly developing across the globe. In order to mitigate the growing fears of international conflict, security and defense companies have continuously innovated.

Living in constant fear is never sought and these companies understand that. Security innovations allow people in the US to walk around freely at the park or go watch their favorite artist at a concert with little to no fear.

New Potential for the Security Industry & Security Stocks

While developing security protocols and machines to fight threats overseas is important, home-grown threats have become a point of concern for US citizens. Mass shootings have increased, and the Muslim radicalization of American citizens is prevalent as ever. In order to make people safer, Liberty Defense has come to fill that hole.

Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (SCAN.V) is developing HEXWAVE to revolutionize how facilities get secured. HEXWAVE can be used to detect any kind of weapon through 3D imaging. The technology utilizes both quickness and indiscretion to produce warnings of potential threats while respecting people’s privacy. 

While the product is still undergoing testing, Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (SCAN.V) has been taking steps to put HEXWAVE in front of the public. The company recently announced signing a memorandum of understanding with Utah’s Attorney General to beta test HEXWAVE there. The technology can be tested at sporting events, amusement parks, schools, and government buildings.

Bill Riker, Liberty Defense’s CEO, stated, “HEXWAVE can be applied in a variety of settings to provide a means to identify possible threats before they advance into attacks. We are excited that the Attorney General of Utah recognizes the potential value of this technology and the opportunity it provides for enhanced security in the state.”

What’s Should Be Expected Of Defense Companies?

When people think about the US armed forces they marvel at the gear used from tanks to jet planes. Most people do not take the moment to think where the US actually gets its arms from.

Report: This New Technology Could Transform A Multi-Billion-Dollar Industry!

One company responsible for US defenses is Lockheed Martin (LMT). Lockheed Martin develops and manufactures missile systems, aircraft, and training systems. They even provide cybersecurity services to governmental figures.

While Lockheed Martin controls a large portion of the defense industry, they show no signs of slowing down. Recently, the company made progress on its new production facility in Alabama. It is expected to be a 225,000 square foot facility to fulfill US Air Force needs.

The construction is expected to be finished in 2021. Executive Vice President, Frank St. John, explained, “All our employees come to work with an unwavering commitment to help our customers succeed in their mission to create a more secure and prosperous world.”
