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?

Actually different countries do operate differently about health issues, that's a non-issue IYO?  Alrighty then, and yes, mental health is controversial and always has been.  I'm sorry if that's new news to you.

"Actually different countries do operate differently about health issues, that's a non-issue IYO?

The "pink cause," as you call it, is an international phenomenon at this point. --- No, I really don't know what you mean by mental health being "controversial." It would be great if you would explain how you mean that.

Mops, this debate speaks for itself.

Well you know, except for laws and court decisions based on those laws.  So yea, you can force people to things.

"Mops, this debate speaks for itself." -------- No, not really. You are the only one so far who has suggested that mental illness is somehow different from other chronic illnesses. I would genuinely like to know what you mean by that.

You just said that you didn't know how Greece operates and now you do?  It's not news to me, but your continued lack of empathy for this disease is news to me, especially in your chosen field of study.  I wish it wasn't, really wish it wasn't.

Pumpkin, the Greece thing is completely irrelevant and has nothing to do with the discussion at hand.

Just curious--does treatment make your daughter's diabetes go away? It certainly didn't for my mother, but it did turn it into a manageable health condition that she lived with on a daily basis, just like my mentally ill mother in law when she takes her meds. And unlike a chronic health condition like diabetes, in some cases (such as postpartum depression), treatment does actually make the mental illness go away.

So yeah--you could not be more wrong on this one...Surprised that's my shocked face.

Again, stretching what's been said, keep it up if that's what works for you..  It doesn't for me.....  We agree that mental illness is a chronic illness but the similarities stop there.  I've even gone as far as already stating that no two (other) chronic conditions are alike - cancer and diabetes as an example.  If you want to further this debate, what more is it you want to debate..  Where does your advocacy lie mops?  I believe there are more outlets and help for mental health than my own child's terminal condition to be quite honest but take stories like this one alone and that becomes it's own beast I guess.....

Oh yea, I remember your own stakes about PPD/PPP wannabe. We were long overdue for that now weren't we?
