I know there is a lot going on right now in the state. For those of you who don’t know (and by no means am I an expert) we are in a huge financial crisis. I know this is not a typical topic for me to cover, but it has been on my mind lately.
I have to be honest: I am disappointed in the way the state is headed., and even mad at times. But I can’t blame anyone any longer. I think it’s really easy to point fingers at people at the,yet I am feeling tired of this cycle.
It is times like these that I ask for accountability from those in power, and community and hope from my community of peers, young adults and anyone who has ever felt like an underdog. Right now, we are facing massive budget cuts to social services, and the future is uncertain as election day approaches.
I don’t want to minimize the effect of the budget crisis – there are many wonderful programs and supports that have affected the lives of people in need, and the jobs of professionals who tirelessly serve others.
Right now, this is just a reminder to myself to keep going and remind people that mental health affects 4/4 of people, not just the 1/4 of people.
