Jordon Pederson said we essentially have economic stratification due to low IQ of 10 – 25% of our population. It was deeply troubling to him that they find effective work. It is troublesome but I believe low status is temporary, we can overcome this with support and we provide 1) a release valve for overworked […]
My search term was ‘how many with mental illness find good jobs’ and this US statistic came up. 2 PERCENT!!! Let me place no blame. Companies earn money for the earnest owner and every employee that works with them. They are in competition with other companies. Big leagues are not the place for people with […]
Today two big things about mental health… 1. Sometimes we cannot pinpoint what is wrong and when it is happening. Which…2. Leaves time taking its sweet old pace and why it is called youth’s great disabler. That said we manage these issues when we teach you to paint for a living. Earn more in less […]
Today we discuss empathy. Not because it’s the hot topic of the week, but b/c it lets you learn very quickly. I just read autism in heels by Jennifer Cook O’Toole.

Then we lower the bar to ‘do whatever it takes’. If only we had the foresight to get to work in an in demand industry, ideally as a small business, […]
Asking for help from Mental Health Professionals can be taxing. Maybe it takes you a day, maybe a year, maybe a decade to get the support you need. It is important they respond effectively and quickly. Remember their paycheck relies on your illness or injury. So expect treatment, you deserve it.
It is often the case where living in that empty feeling is a place of forgetfulness. This is one large reason why we always need encouragement at any age, at any stage. This is the human element.
Post today deals with processes. If something isn’t working it needs a list and an order to do it in. This extends all the way to coping & functioning as a BioMi (brain injured or mentally ill, includes Ptsd). We instruct in small business, painting skills as well as the coping & functioning. But it […]
So Covid 19 is testing the water of what some call the need for a Universal Basic Income. I was against this in the beginning because it was a UN Socialist Agenda item that seriously bothered me. Combine it with the massive amounts of debt that we are incurring, at least in Canada anyway and […]
