How Do We Get Out of the Advocacy Bubble?

If what I do sounds descriptive of how you live your own online life, than let me challenge you. Find a post that resonates with you, on either blog, and share it with your network. Or, share this post with a personal note about how child abuse, or mental illness, has touched your life with your network. Not just with the folks you already interact with about these topics, but outside of that.

And then continue to look for ways to reach beyond the bubble of the online survivor community. Because there are survivors and people dealing with mental health problems all around us, and there are also those who remain uneducated about those topics all around us as well.

No, what we need are not more registries. We need something much more comprehensive than that, something that will take more work than that, and something that focuses so much more on the children being abused and how to help them than on anything else, especially things that make us feel safer without providing much benefit at all.
