Why Getting Laid Isn't the Answer to Ableism

By Annie-Rose Strasser on January 7, 2014 at 10:33 am "Cop Allegedly Said ‘We Don’t Have Time For This’ Before Shooting Schizophrenic Teen To Death" Keith Vidal CREDIT: Facebook Schizophrenic 18-year-old Keith Vidal was having an episode on Sunday when his parents called the police for assistance.

Shooting Schizophrenic Teen To Death

During Sunday’s incident, Vidal had apparently picked up a small screwdriver — small enough that it couldn’t have caused serious harm, his family says, but enough that they sought law enforcement assistance. He says the third officer tased Vidal, knocking the 90-pound teenager to the ground. Southport Police Department, one of the three North Carolina agencies that responded to the call, has put one of its detectives on administrative leave in relation to the case, reports WECT.

Sadly, families often treat police officers as assistants in home disputes or conflicts. Too often, the mentally ill are on the other end of the barrel.

Mad Pride

Mad Pride is a mass movement of the users of mental health services, former users, and their allies. The first known event specifically organized as a Pride event by people who identify as psychiatric survivors/consumer/ex-patients was in Toronto, Canada when it was called "Psychiatric Survivor Pride Day", held on September 18, 1993. It was first held in response to local community prejudices towards people with a psychiatric history living in boarding homes in the Parkdale area of the city, and has been held every year since then in this city except 1996.[1] By the late 1990s similar events were being organized as Mad Pride in London, England and around the globe from Australia to South Africa and the United States, drawing thousands of participants, according to MindFreedom International, a United States mental health advocacy organization that promotes and tracks events spawned by the movement.[2] History[edit] Mad culture and events[edit] More Evidence Linking Creativity, Mental Illness.

More Evidence Linking Creativity, Mental Illness

The findings also suggest that to safeguard the positive traits associated with mental illness, new approaches to treatment might be considered, the researchers said. The investigators looked at long-term data from nearly 1.2 million Swedish psychiatric patients and their relatives, and found that bipolar disorder was more common among people with artistic or scientific professions, such as dancers, photographers, authors and researchers. They also found that schizophrenia, in particular, as well as depression, anxiety disorders and substance abuse were more common among writers. Authors were also 50 percent more likely to commit suicide than people in the general population. In addition, the Karolinska Institute researchers found that the relatives of patients with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, anorexia nervosa and autism were more likely to be in creative professions.

Feminism and Anxiety: How the Movement Changed My Relationship with My Mental Health

Some of my most vivid childhood memories are of the feelings of panic I felt each day immediately prior to entering school. Without warning or reason, my chest would become heavy and I felt short-of-breath. It felt like everything was out of my control. I always shrugged it off, assuming it was something everybody dealt with. It wasn’t until I was much older and that I realized I had been struggling with an anxiety disorder for most of my life.

Je ne veux pas être le nain de service

En tant que comédien de petite taille, je trouverais ça à la limite du pathétique de venir pleurer car les rôles de Hobbits ou de nains de Blanche Neige ne nous sont plus réservés ! En tenant ce genre de discours, on est loin de faire évoluer les mentalités dans le bon sens. La question qu’on pourrait en revanche se poser c’est plutôt : pourquoi des films traditionnels (drame, comédie) ne proposent pas des rôles "normaux" à des personnes de petite taille ?
