When researching mental health matters, I read of
many preventable tragedies. 

This comment is dedicated to everyone who feels
overwhelmed.

VICTORY!

Yes, you can!

Some people marvel that members of Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill continue to advocate for imprisonment to be replaced with hospitalization for violent psychiatric patients and with Assisted Outpatient Therapy for nonviolent offenders.  The prison industry is a powerful enterprise, and investors in private prisons count judges, politicians, and media owners in their vast numbers.  When facing the censorship and stalkers who are determined to obstruct our advocacy, I am inspired by others who also chose to stand against wrongdoing against all odds.

Many give up when faced with tyrrany, and some do not.  Because of the people who stood against powerful forces and wrong practices in government and commerce, we have labor laws, slavery was abolished in America, women have the right to vote, I can sit where I please on public transportation, and Hitler lost WWII.

AIMI members are among those who chose to stand.

If you feel discouraged today because of lay-off and financial stress or any other circumstances in life that seem overwhelming, make a decision to keep believing in yourself and in the ultimate victory of good.  Do not be tomorrow's news headline.  Have faith enough to continue doing your best and to stand!  Remember to also relax and enjoy.  If you need help coping, please recognize that there is no shame in seeking counseling.  Do not make a bad permanent decision based  temporary circumstances.  Everything changes eventually.  I want you to be here to see the positive changes that may be out of view now, but they are just around the corner for YOU!

Never give up!

I feel Care2 members should KNOW about the "work from home" ads, RECRUITING "MULES" TO CARRY OUT ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES. Just like the Drug Cartels do... A person who was recruited unwittingly by one of these ads, was given in a seattleweekly.com article ...
