As an advocate and student studying health + human services this scenario is sad and I'm glad child welfare is involved.  WDYT?  Is there a break down of the system, according to her, here or is this just somebody placing the blame on others?

Jams, yes we may have different opinions, although I find it incomprehensible how it can be insulting for someone with breast cancer to debate the pink movement. If you do not believe that mental illness is a disease, would you kindly let us know what you think it is?

I don't think the pink movement is even debatable, You've attempted to take it to debate twice.  Why?

There are many people who have issues with the "pink movement." Many of them are actually living with cancer.

Jams, because it is October and it is all over and most people are unaware of certain realities. --- However, there are other threads for the pink stuff, please explain what you think mental illness is if it is not a disease.

You need to start with where I said mental illness was NOT a disease, thanks...

Ahh, So it's at the expense of others who are living with the cancer that actually do support the cause?  Wow!  I hope there's common ground somewhere...

Jams, you said: "Does treatment help mental illness go away? Tell that to a grown person that has done so much harm first... No, it's not like a disease like cancer or heart disease." --------- It is very much a disease like many other chronic disease - diabetes, migraines, cancer etc.

Although I have never debated it on this forum I think that the pink movement is very debatble.

Many people do not realize how little the are doing for the cause in buying or wearing pick.  Pink things will not help find a cure for cancer, money will.  You get a much better bang for the buck donating $50 than buying a $50 item in which only a few cents are donated.  I recently got a booklet from a cancer organization that I donate to monthly about thier partners who are helping.   A company will not get my purchasing dollar if their donations are completly tied to purchares "For each purchase we will donate $.03"  A company that does a straight donation "We will donate $100,000 regardless of sale" will.

Foundations, many of them, are formed b/c of personal experiences with them.  And your attempt AGAIN to wish to debate it is sad to me.  Yes, it is at the expense of others going through the exact same thing you are.
