Dear Melinda,

 

I've enjoyed the SPIRIT class.  I've benefited from taking it.  I've gained a lot of knowledge about mental illness.  I've also learned how the system doesn't always help the consumer with their problems.

 

I want to help.  I'm not sure my approach will be accepted.  I think it maybe accepted because the SPIRIT class is connecting some of my thoughts and helping me get a clearer perspective.

 

I've been going to Clackamas County Mental Health for thirty years and I have been on medication all that time.  The counselors and psychiatrists think the medication will help me.  However, I've not recovered from my illness.  It has stayed the same.

 

I'm a person that believes in divine healing.  I believe that if we have faith in God and ourselves we can become healed from our mental illness.  If we have faith without doubt all things are possible.  I believe the SPIRIT class is taking the right approach.  They want the Consumer to have a voice in their treatment, not to have treatment decided for them by their psychiatrist.  I'm sorry to say that some psychiatrists don't believe in the Bible, God, and divine healing.

 

All of the instructors and my fellow students in the SPIRIT class want a voice in their treatment.  We believe that if the Consumer has a voice in their treatment they can recover.

 

Thank you for making this class available.  It shows me you are a good person and you want to improve things for the better for the Consumer.

 

Sincerely yours,
