Miserable Christmas For Wonderful Advocate

I was alerted to a recent post by Phil Dawdy over at Furious Seasons this morning. He writes about Steph, who writes the hugely popular Soulful Selpulcher blog.

For the last three years Steph has been battling against the Washington State Mental Health System.

Personally, I find the ruling absurd. Steph's daughter, Lindsey, was found NOT to be a danger to her self or others. Perversely, she was found to be at danger from society as she often wanders off.

It would appear that the Washington State Mental Health System have failed Lindsey here. Nobody knows their own child like their mother. Linds, as Steph likes to call her, has been diagnosed with apparent schizophrenia - Steph believes her daughter has autism.

Phil Dawdy goes into more detail and briefly touches on the history of Western State Hospital, the place where Linds has been ordered to.

As for Steph, she will visit her daughter tomorrow, knowing that she will have to leave at some point because of some perverse ruling by an even more perverse mental health system.

My heart goes out to Steph. She has supported the work of many bloggers over the years I have known her. She always has time to read about other advocay work, despite her own struggles.

Steph, this blog salutes you and hopes the Washington State Mental Health System will see sense and allow a loving mother to look after her child, I also hope the ruling made by the King County Superior Court can be overturned and common sense can prevail.

I urge those of you reading this to head on over to Steph's blog to offer your support. She's a true gem with a heart of gold.
