Mental health records should be kept private
Debate Rounds (2)
a health record is a collection of clinical information about a patient (http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com...) mental health records refer to just a persons mental health. The problem is that a persons address and personal details are included in such records, so if the records were public (the alternitive to them being private), then it would be easier for people with malicous intentions to do whatever they want. There are guidelines for the sharing of medical records however the notion they should be public would breach privacy on an alarming scale.
