Hi thank you so very much for coming to my page and Donating to "One Brave Night" Wheither it be by making a financial Donation to CAMH, or either you Stay up yourself (with me) and Support people like myself with mental health issues or those with addictions! It really is appericated!
It really can be a Struggle to have a Mental illness First for the person living with the illness (to start with trying to find a proper diagnos, this can go on for a Lifetime, becasue there can be so many symptom with a certian Mental illness it makes it hard to diagnose and point just one diganois, (then there is finding the right medications for THAT person their their body chemistry!)
(So you can imagine how frusterating it is for both the patient and Doctor (and we can't forget the Families invovled) It took 16 years to come up with a "cocktil" Of medications that would work for my condition (even today, there are "hiccups" (such as side effects)
I am lucky to have a Amazing Husband, Amazing Family Doctor, Phycitrist, Phyamisist and Councelor (My Coure Team) The same Thing about living "Roural" is Lack of Funding so this mean Less Doctors (No physical Contact with a Phyciatrist, No help as far as Local help for Mental help if you need it
(if you have a Mania Eppisode or Depressive they just ship you off to the nearist City (Local Nurses have No clue how to treat people with mental health issues (no do the previous Docotors, (when they have doctors at the Hospital!!!) It's a Mess!!!
What I want to see is Educations for ALLL Doctors and Nurses around mental health Care (Maybe Compassion Care) A "On Call Phyciatrist" instead of this "Telephycitry" !
Just to say a Few things (And More Programs and Help put being Forth for people with mental health issues (and Support programs for their families) (Not just in Big Cities) NOT to mention More education in schools about Mental health (both about the contions , how you can care for those with, not judging and so on) (from elementry to College (obviously the programes would be diffrent!) These are the things i'd like to see and how I would Like this Money to be put (Or Taxe dollars spent! I am VERY passinate about mental health awareness!
Thanks for reading and Supporting me,
