I work in the mental health field, and it seems that with Bush being in office (I know, it's a gratuitous jab), that there are going to be more and more pressures on the middle class to make it. As a result, health care will be harder to come by, take-home pay for the middle class will decrease, and financial pressures will cause tensions to rise and stress to increase, making more and more people susceptible to depression, drug and alcohol abuse and other mental problems.
This means that there will be an increased need for more and more facilities to deal with the psychologically needy and those who need psychiatric help, as well as more and more nurses, doctors and support professionals to help them, as well as more companies that deal with the administration of health services in general.
People at my hospital agree that mental health services will be a growth industry in the first decade of the 21st century and beyond.
On the other hand, under the favor-the-rich Republicans, it seems as if wealth creation and investment opportunities will increase, if only because Bush et al want to improve the bottom line for the haves at the expense of the have-nots.
Bottom line is this: I need some advice on how to best profit from this anticipated uptick in mental health need. What types of investments should I be making in order to profit from the increased need for mental health services I see coming?
