Today, I will go forth into the unknown. Life will unfold itself as I walk each step and think each thought. Therefore, worry makes no sense and lamenting over the past also has no place. Today, right now…that is my life and I am the creator not the observer. -By HW (C)2013

Welcome to 2013. This year is bound to be life-changing as monumental issues are developing rapidly. The NRA has proposed an armed officer or more in the schools. The want a national database of those with mental illness. How would one define this list? Would it be only for people who have already sought out help? How would that effect client and professional confidentiality? Wouldn’t this create more problems for those who need to seek help because they do not want to be on some big brother database?

Statistics have shown for years that those with mental illness labels are more apt to be the victim than the perpetrator of a crime. But, the press is molding the public opinions as they always do.

As always, we promote the power of the peers to help other peers. Some are talking about trying to come up with a national warmline for people to problem-solve and talk about their issues before they become overwhelming.
