Prayers By Diane Donovan-Vaughn

Mental health is always on my mind! I am a therapist. For over twenty years I have been frustrated and saddened about disappearing long term inpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment. Now, I am praying for universal health care and compassionate treatment instead of judgment, rejection and/or jail. As I witness the debate over gun control, I ask myself why mental health is not evaluated before owning guns, having children and driving a car? Why must we spend so much money putting people in jail who would benefit from treatment? Move the money and transform prisons to facilities for treatment and education.
Today and every day, I pray for solutions that are compassionate and loving to all! 🙏💜
