The latest New York laws require mental health professionals to report anyone who is a danger to themselves (or others) to the State to prevent them from buying guns. As someone who has considered this, now I am afraid to even speak my thoughts to my psychologist who may possibly help me. I have a good relationship with my psych but lately due to circumstances, things have gotten bad and I've had thoughts again. Although I am aware enough that it is best to tell him "yes everything is fine", so my options remain open. Doesn't this new law basically make patients lie to their doctors?????
