Hi @Interested,

The book will be online after the book launch on Wednesday - please email Katie Reeves at [email protected] to request a copy, with the CHC's suggested donation of $25. There will be physical books available at the book launch as well (address in article). Hope this answers your question!

-----combat stigma

The most significant piece of information one can glean from the above?

We have taught this young person to believe there is a stigma to mental health issues.

It's time to cut down on the homework. Maximum of 1 hour of homework should be allowed. Not a minute over. Kids are just too stressed out these days with the ridiculous amount of school work / homework. It's very unhealthy.

Imagine the mental health of those immigrant kids ripped from their parents and stacked and stored in that old Walmart.

They're even being prescribed drugs for their mental health without the knowledge of their parents, and most likely, without any knowledge of their medical history. Think about it - your ten year old being detained, and asked about his medical history?!?!?

But hey - they get a Trump mural: “Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war.”

That won't be a problem, will it? Young kids seeking asylum, being imprisoned, overcrowded, fed drugs, indoctrinated with “Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war”....

Nah, no issues coming out of all that, I'm sure.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
