I know Ms Cody personally and I can say she is a wonderful human being and she has the heart of an angel. Although she came into my life rather recently, I will remember her the rest of my own life. Her past story is rather "telling" of the condition of mankind, which is empty and uncaring. Had she not met Ms Rus and her other friends, I often wonder just where Marilyn would be today. The mental health services and workers in our nation are an overlooked asset.
Mental health, just like physical health, is a very important part of everyone's general welfare, however, mental health carries a certain negative stigma, simply because the public has a misunderstanding concerning the illnesses which are associated within.
Our mental health patients, which include many homeless individuals, simply because of lack of resources, deserve the very best care available. I am so very glad to be able to help those people, many with stories just like Marilyn Cody's, who have been tossed too and fro and are mostly unwanted by society.
Good mental health is good health, PERIOD.
Thank God there are those who understand mental health patients are normal people,who's mind may be simply going through extraordinary circumstances. It is our duty to care for them and give the very best in everything we do, to allow therapy and time to heal their illness.
Nancy, Great Job!
