    I recognise just how one can feel in moments of despair, and have visited/conselling services. But do they really help? and does the result of a conselling session really give a lasting effect? I beg to differ! Does anyone even contemplate using these services in dark times of ones life? I think that these services are personal, but only to the user. Yes it does help to talk to a stranger to get all of yor problems off loaded, but ultimately they will go home to their everyday normal lives without thinking at all what you have been through. discuss.

      It takes a special person to listen to someone else's despair and then go home to their everyday normal lives.

      They are taught to 'shut off' - they have to, else they could never do that type of work.

      Same as doctors and nurses 'shut off' and don't show their heartache when someone dies or they have bad news to report.

      Whether voluntary or paid, the people who man help lines, or who offer counselling, have to be that way in order to be of any use.

    I agree that this is the case to the vast majority of those in question.  The real travesty is the exploded opinion and application of medication to these youth.  This is wrong and is just a mask or excuse to not make correct choices in one's life.

    A Couselor is a job being performed by a normal person. smile and normal person is someone like us, they have their families, they have kids, they too have their own problems. Ofcourse they will go home to their everyday normal lives without thinking at all what you have been through. Because if they do think about all the problems and the people they've encountered that day, their life would shutdown lol

    I haven't visited counseling services but I guess they really can help in some way. The job of a counselor is not just to listen to the person, she is also there to give some words that can penetrate to a persons closed mind. Couselors are not just mere listeners, they were usually a graduate of psychology, they were experts when it comes to the map of human behavior. They know how to install a cavity that can enter a strong helmet of a depressed mind. lol but after that, the whole recovering process is all up to you, how you nurture the cavity would depend on your ability to fight the problem.

    Guess what you needed was a wife...but if you're too young for it, a mom is good replacement too..lol

    I have had the need to visit counsellors a few times in my life and the counsellors were not there to take on my burdens, they were there to listen and make me see my problems from another perspective, help me to solve my own problems. Counsellors are wonderful human beings who deserve our praise for the work they do and they have every right to go back to their own lives without the extra burdens from their clients.

    Well thats exactly my point, these guys have their own problems/lives to deal with. My thought is that there needs to be a revolution in the way people are treated, of which consists of three main facilties 1) social networking amongst those with the same problems 2) intervention using a specialised type of exercise which i will not discuss any further 3)run the places on a somewhat voluntary basis by users for the users-that way people are way more likely to be able to relate ( of course there are many implications that would ensue and regulations to ensure safety, but just consider this the framework). I didnt find it too helpful when visiting counselling services as i just couldnt level with the people, i just kept thinking that these guys dont truly no what im going through. And sometimes, from my experience a little bit of understanding can go a long way. I do appreciate that these guys have hearts of gold and my love does go out to them, but at the end of the day if we really want to treat the nation from mental disorders then widescale measures need to be put in place, of which are also sustainable for the future. We live in a an age of which is just after what some like to call 'the guinea pig generation', which essentially means that the 80s-90s was an age of which illegal drugs where introduced on the black market on a huge scale. And also that the facilities used for treating drug users where at the time hugely inadequate, and as the modern age has progressed; so has illicit drugs. Cannibis is now 80% more stronger than it was in the 80s, so theres a huge possiblity that the nation will have a huge problem with mental disorders in the near future; so we need to be prepared.

    Learn how what you feel can mean. Learn how dark can be a lesson in how to change your thinking of your life.

    I suppose thats been my best learning. If its painful, its something noew. It means look at the problem or the way you do something differently.

    It can even be a pattern in your aura, a ancestoral link to times past. An unforgotten body memory. All these things can create present ... and when you learn , you grow and do not fear the dark.. for it is just one spectrum of light.

    theres black and white and theres a whole spectrum of color inbetween. Remember that if you begin to think too dark,...
