The Cost of NOT Caring

27 Aug 2014

EXCELLENT article! "Mental disorders keep thousands of homeless on streets."- Rick Jervis

Because my dad was so successful, and because my family is highly functional in general, it had not occurred to me until Kaylan died that the stress of mental illness could be the cause of homelessness and early death. It makes me sad that we know what works to alleviate suffering but we as a country won't take those actions because of political differences. Illness and having a place to live should not be reliant on political ideology. We are human. We deserve love and care. We are all here by the grace of God.
