Andrew Toles and the LA Dodgers Are Another Case Where This Shouldn’t be What is Necessary

Andrew Toles and the LA Dodgers Are Another Case Where This Shouldn’t be What is Necessary

When it comes to the mental health of our loved ones, there is nothing more important than ensuring we communicate our support for them.

Sharing – Who Gets to Be Mentally Ill?

So, someone like me, a middle-aged, professional, white male, can talk about struggling and get encouragement, pointed to good resources that are affordable for me, and there’s hope that I’ll get better. Someone living near poverty will say the same thing, and we start looking at whether they should have their kids removed from the home or how we can keep them away from a “safe” society.

It gets worse if they are not white and/or have a more serious mental health issue.

That’s not right. Everyone deserves quality mental health care. We shouldn’t divide who gets the care and who doesn’t based on what kind of mental health issue they have or who they are. That’s no way to solve this issue.
