  • Thank you for this post. I know I am preaching to the choir, but here is my response to the conversation. We all need support and help: the victims, the victimizers, their parents, families, the helpers, and our communities. This is because, as we all know, our society is decaying and is sick. The help we all need though is not more of the traditional, legitimized mental ‘health’ system. Not a mental ‘health’ system that is hyper-individual and based on the medical-bio-chemical model of mental ‘illness’. Not a mental ‘health’ system with a goal of helping so called ‘broken’ people adjust to society with pills and diagnoses. We need more progressive, relationship-focused and humane treatments based on growth, development, building community and connection with one another.
