Ohhh....

*looks around the new dig with awe*

Any different rules for this subsection?
I am me, if you dont like it, tough luck!

The rules are specific to each thread on the main Guest Speakers board.  This gives the speaker a bit more control over the flow of their discussion.  The commentary section has no special rules in its description.

Shari hasn't requested any special guidelines so far: she wants the thread to develop naturally.

I'm starting a new thread at approximately 3:00 PM South African time or 9:00 AM EST or 36:00 Bulu, Martian time, give or take an hour or two.

I suggest setting some ground rules for the discussions, to hopefully avoid trolling and unnecessary bickering.

Same!  Shari's been good enough to give us her time, please don't derail the thread for others.   ||smiley||

Wouldn't work very well for schitzophrenia in my opinion.
Affect Behavior and Cognition was one of the first things I learned in assessing psych patients, and I'm on an acute schizophrenia floor.

Personally, I don't accept the stigma associated with having a mental illness. If your foot gets cut off at work and you go to the hospital for treatment nobody blames you... they treat you. If your job is stressful and you need help dealing with it, why should someone blame you?

So much more could be said about this sort of reaction:

SMART sounds like a typical treatment plan for any mental illness.
what are you an expert on mental illness now?
true christian and true mentally ill, what a combo.
lets hear the long version.
and don't project, please.

Isn't it interesting that people will refuse to accept the truth because of who is saying it?

Looking forward,
QM

I think we found some common ground here, QM. I agree.
