Okay just thinking out loud here, but what about putting something together to distribute to mental health professionals to raise awareness for those who we likely seek out when we are seeking help?


Whaddya think,


too ambitious and crazy?Huh?

Joy...

Been there, done that.  At least in Arizona, no one seems to give a rat's ass.  Apparently, these folks declared themselves educated when they got their degree, and decided there was nothing more to learn.

I'm serious.  I worked for almost a year on a special program, presented it to a large number of therapists.  NO RESPONSE!

Do you still have copies of the work you did, and if so can I see it?

Gotta dig into the old (barely breathing) computer.  I hope I can get to it, and I hope I kept it.  Unfortunately, I get into moods where I think everything is futile and I dump ****. 

Send me an email, Hmmmm?... so I can be reminded to fire the old thing up and look.

I even had an acronym for the program, was quite proud of it, to the point I even listed it on my resume (now, of course, no longer listed).

I had a simliar thought recently Joy but instead of targetting MHPs I thought about targetting the general public. Flyerss, CDs (like those annoying AOL ones we all get in the mail, etc.). Instead of chinese menus on our cars at malls and parking lots, how about some adoption reform literature?

I have a coworker who has a child with Downs Syndrome. In the area he lived, he struggled with educating the school system, public, etc. to a Downs child. He and a group of parents produced a rather rough video that they then distributed to librarys, schools, coffee shops, etc. It was wildly successful. Major grassroots effort that really took off.

It wouldnt have to be fancy...a bunch of videos (everyone has a camera that can record..just look at youtube). OR flyers or cards, brochures, etc.

Its a thought.

Joy,

I found 2 saved documents.  They are not the final ones but they are something at least.  Will send to you via email.

the distribution of information is a good idea i think!!! flyers, brosures, cd's its all good. adoption agencies, therapists, residences, trade show type thingys where you can set up booths, malls, bulletin boards

Joy, I am still looking for more, and I see what I sent you is quite old - needs updating!
