It is my hope that someday soon ALL teachers, support staff, and administrators from pre-school on, in EVERY school district in the country, get superb, up-to-date training in mental illness...from anxiety and depression to full-blown, complex mental health illnesses such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder and all the other disorders including PTSD, OCD, and on and on and on. As a country we are shamefully ignorant on understanding let alone treating mental illness, and yet there is probably not one person in the US who has not been touched by it in some way, shape, or form. Such education should not be just for special education workers. We all need to be responsible to spot issues before they lead to disasters, in order to help people as early as possible. The stigma regarding these illnesses has got to stop. There is no room for 'witch hunting.' Mental illness needs to be understood, and not feared nor swept under covers. We must stop pretending that mental illness is not a major epidemic. Until WE ALL deal with mental illness in our society (what it is, how it comes to be, how it accelerates, how to treat it, etc.), how on earth can anyone expect government or people-in-their-homes to make sound decisions on that which much of society has accepted as OK? How can it be that electronic games focusing on killing and destruction, not to mention children and adults watching TV (often together!) with outrageous violent themes and horrendous graphic displays, be sanctified as mentally healthy? It boggles the mind. Literally.
