I'm just completing a follow up survey to help us improve this program. Recovery rates are down, "functionality" is way down and communication is way, way down.
World wide, mental health does not get the time nor money it needs. Us too. Our clients show up as tick marks in a patients-seen log. But what's the outcome? So what? Even if the so what is good - can we make it better?
It's a problem - here and around the world - that I don't think we can afford to ignore. Certainly not in rapidly-changing Ladakh, were suicides, drug and alcohol use and stress rates are skyrocketing.
Dang. But thank goodness for taking the time to go talk to each and every client and get their input. Back to work.
