Mental Illness

It’s time we stand up to the reality of mental illness. Mental illness is a very painful disease that effects not onlythe person suffering but also those around them.
Laws to get people help are getting tougher and tougher. Finding places for people to go to get help are dwindling. Many are not speaking out to say they are struggling and resort to attempted suicide or they are successful.
It is going to take all of us to listen with our ears and heart to help those who are suffering from extreme depression. It’s gong to take all of us to pray that God exposes our family, friends and those in our community who need help.
A man I was very much in love with had been raped by a priest over a several year period. He shared with his family and he was beaten because we didn’t say things like that He was around 10 – 12. When he became 35 he had a nervous breakdown and attempted suicide several times. He was never able to come hom. He passed away a few years ago still in an assisted living facility. IF someone had listened and believed him, according to the dr’s, and gotten him help, he could have had a full life.
Mental Health issues are real! Take time to be aware of local procedures so you are prepared if a situation arises.
Most importantly, Let’s Pray……….Pray Until Something Happens!

I Am Furious!

In a time when violence in schools is at the forefront I had a very bad experience. As many of you know PUSH has a teen hotline and several of us are certified in teen crisis. Early this morning I received a message that a boy in middle school was planning a shooting at his school. He was looking at guns online in school and sharing his plan with friends. I did some investigating and the young man has a history of being in a lot of trouble and also being on medication for other mental disorders. As we are told I call the PD and I’m told no one is there to take my call and that someone would call me back. 6 hours later still no call so I call back. I speak to an officer who takes info and said he d report it to the school Monday. REALLY?? Thos young man needs help! Who knows if he s serious or not but this child needs to be checked out…..Guess Ill have to try something different.
