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?

"Could I look at someone and guess they have diabetes or cancer? If I saw an insulin pump or a chemo port or, you know, lack of hair and excessive weight loss, that would be a pretty obvious sign of diabetes and cancer respectively, would it not?" --------- Yes, and if you saw me coming down the street without prosthetics, I think you might conclude that I have cancer. Thing is that if a mental illness is well controlled, you might not notice. Likewise, you might not notice someone's diabetes if it were well controlled, so I am a bit confused about the intended point here.
