I believe in advocating for those who suffer from mental illness. It is what I do for a living and the way my company is doing it is quite amazing. A group of like minded social workers go down to Springfield, Illinois. This is the capital of the state. They have been going down and fighting for the ACA. As well as fighting for the government get a budget and stop cutting funding. It is such a hard thing for governments to acknowledge! People suffer from illness. It is a fact, and just because someone has a brain illness does not mean they are any less oppressed or under sercviced.It really angers me, and I use that anger to fuel my daily work with people with mental illness. It is a hard job, and a much needed one, yet our government does not recognize the death rates of those with mental illness. The day they do, the day my clients aren't ostracized anywhere due to their illness, then I will feel that we are agents of change. We are, I just mean, I want to see the end of this. The end of the stigma. Regards, Roxanne Reply Quote Email Author

The area of mental health treatment is a major area of social work because there is a great need for it, yet this area also tends to be on that ends up being a target for budget cuts. There is a great need for advocacy here. Works Cited Daschle, T. A. (2003, November 6). Senator Paul Wellstone Mental Health Equitable Treatment Act of 2003.
