Jayme,It's time for something new.Starting with something as simple as treating others the way any of us would want to be treated.How complex is that?This is not the stuff of medical school, or advanced degrees. This is the stuff of common decency, and common sense.The medical community, the mental health professionals have somehow been unable to grasp such a simple concept.A note to anyone who works in the mental health system:"This ain't rocket science... lead, follow or get out the way!"Duane Sherry, M.S.
Jayme,The mental health system in this country is not only broken, it's shattered!It doesn't need to be repaired, it needs to be replaced!A vision -http://discoverandrecover.wordpress.com/mental-health-freedom-and-recovery-act/Keep up the great work in Georgia, Jayme!Duane
What an incredible vision, Duane. Did you write it? Let's make it a reality. It needs to be a reality, and soon.
Jayme,Yes, I wrote it a while back.It's been circulated to some extent, but not to the level needed.Please feel free to contact anyone who might have an interest in this by sending them the link.This will take an enormous team effort. This will take solidarity, committment, energy, but I believe it can be done. And I believe we can do it!My best,Duane
I'm going to add it to gmhcn.org and to the Consumer/Survivors Issues email list. It needs to be read by as many people as possible. You did a brilliant job with it.
Thank you, Jayme.Duane
Jayme,You've done a "brilliant job" with the people's lives you've touched.You bring people the one thing they need the most... hope!Duane
Thank you, Duane. Hope is something I needed, too, and it does wonders. I'd love to think I give back in that way!
