“Who Deserves The Real Credit?

I started to think about what it means to be an advocate for those who can’t speak up for themselves or try provide sort of service for those who can’t do for themselves. We all know there are many different kinds of advocates. I myself am an advocate for people with disabilities. Advocates can do many different things like provide information & other services.

When I think of advocates that provide services to clients. I feel like they have to keep those clients informed throughout there time being an advocate for their clientele. When they fail to meet the standards that they know they should meet. You shouldn’t just wait until things are too late. Here’s a hypothetical question for you. What would you do if you found on an organization that is supposed to be an advocacy group on Yelp? I would like to know your opinion on this. I know I would definitely question the non-profit groups integrity.

When you think of Yelp it is for finding restaurant reviews, finding different places to shop, & finding out about different activities. Yelp isn’t a place you would see any organizations that are associated to the mental health field. I can understand why they maybe on there however it isn’t a place that people would just search up the organizations in question.

Yes, I’m open about me having a learning disability. I know that people in life have ups and downs in some way, shape or form. Those who have disabilities shouldn’t be looked at as lost cause. I grew up knowing that people who think that those who have some sort of disability are different and unique. It doesn’t mean that people should put them down. I myself look at organizations that help people with disabilities are good however those who maybe involve with organizations should have the right to be looked at a person and need the right to stand up for themselves. If the clients want to say move on with their lives they need that right to move forward. It isn’t like they deserve to be treated like they are something they are not. I know there are organizations out there that do a great job with their clients and those organizations really deserve the real praise. I can say for a fact that the organizations that don’t do for their clients really should be closely monitored by a higher being.

I consider myself as an advocate. I tend to speak out about issues that affect people who have disabilities. I also take into consideration that people are different when it comes to the challenges they have in their life. I say the persons family should try to be involved in their kids life and no matter what ages your kids are be involved in some aspect of their lives.

Never Give up and Don’t let your Struggles get in Your Way

Has there ever been times in your life where you wonder where you’re going in life. That’s what I am currently going through at the moment. There are times in my life where I feel confused about  where I am going in life.  I have faced my fair share of struggles in my life. I have wished that I was normal for quite a while now.  I have been battling depression for years now. I myself feel like more should be done with shedding light on depression as a whole. I feel that there is always hope with no matter how you are feeling. I know that I am only one person.  My family has been a huge inspiration to me in so many ways. I know that I can do whatever I can do anything in my life no matter who says otherwise. The only person who would get in the way is me.  Never give up and don’t let your struggles get in your way of doing what you love to do in life.

AMCPress isn’t afraid of discussing topics that aren’t discussed a lot in mainstream media. Depression is something that is rarely discussed. It seems like it is a taboo topic to discuss. What’s your opinion?

“Never be Afraid to Speak up”

There’s different times in your life where you can face challenges. I myself look at all the challenges I’ve faced with an open mind. Growing up with a learning disability wasn’t easy. I also learned that depression and anxiety is associated with my learning disability (Asperger’s Syndrome) it didn’t make my life easy when I went to public school.
As I grew I knew that I know what is best for me. I learned that I had to start speaking up when it came to certain situations in my life. I knew that some doctors out there would be looking out for themselves. I started asking questions about different things.
I also learned to stand up for myself even if others didn’t like what I had to say. I learned that there was few good organizations out there that are out there. There is some organizations
