Removing The Stigma

Daniel Chase

To stigmatize someone is to identify a distinguishing characteristic or personal trait perceived be, whether in actuality or otherwise, as a disadvantage, and treat that individual differently, often in a negative manner. As humans, we inherently judge the people we meet, almost instantaneously, as a means of discerning whether they pose an immediate threat to our existence or not.

Once that has been decided, we then make the choice if we choose to interact with this individual. In modern society, by virtue of stigmatization and racism, we carry certain biases about people depending on how we were raised/what we were taught. For example, if one were to grow up in a family of white supremacists, one could assume this person is a xenophobic racist who prefers not to associate with people of color. 

Some of the more harmful effects of stigmatizing someone, or a group of individuals, include reduced access to resources for these groups of innocent people. How we view people directly relates to how we interact with them, and, in terms of people with mental health conditions, society has largely discriminated against anyone with a mental illness.

Mental health is an issue area that should be held to the same regard as a physical illness but, in the United States, this is sadly not the case. According to recent statistics, of the millions of adults suffering from mental illness in the U.S., only 41% received mental health services in the past year, largely because of factors connected to stigmatization. 

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

Because Americans don’t take mental health nearly as seriously as it should be, there is a lack of resources for people who truly need them. Given that suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for people aged 10 – 34, and more than 90% of people who die by suicide show symptoms of a mental health condition, one would think that something would change. Somewhere along the line, we decided that because mental illnesses cannot be physically seen, they’re basically not there, and therefore, healthcare should be mainly available to individuals with “real” diseases. 

The biggest mistake that we make when speaking about individuals who suffer from mental illness is that we allow ourselves to equate people with their ailments. Every human in this world is so much more than what can be physically determined about them, and this holds true to anyone with a health condition. We need to stop saying that someone “is bipolar,” but rather that they “have bipolar disorder.” If we dissociate the disease from the person, we alleviate the justification for stigmatizations. 

Historically, companies have lent spare time and resources to help correct some of the world’s issues, but none have really gone so far that they overextend their abilities and pull out all the stops. It’s almost too taboo for a company to show that they care about a specific issue. Thankfully, not all companies act this way, and some of risen to the occasion of spreading awareness about mental illness. 

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 last week announced week the launch of a technologyenabled mental health initiative. 

Per the details of the announcement, 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. In addition to providing resources to those who suffer from mental illness, the Company will also be working to improve access to mental health resources for those in underserved communities.

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.”
