Counselors going door-to-door in Gulf county offering “immediate” help — “We’re losing ground” says local health official


Baldwin County mental health counselors to make house calls, describe oil spill services, Press-Register, September 13, 2010:

[M]ental health counselors concerned about lingering effects from the Gulf spill will be going door-to-door in Baldwin County within the next few weeks... and even provide immediate counseling if needed, according to Robin Riggins, executive director of the Baldwin County Mental Health Center.

The door-to-door work is one of several initiatives from a newly created Baldwin County Mental Health Advisory Committee. ...

“We are still in the planning and discussion stages, but we want to move quickly because we’re losing ground as we speak,” Riggins said.

The Alabama Department of Mental Health is paying for emergency counseling programs on the coast from $12 million given by BP PLC.

  • *Watchout* for those counselors coming to your door. They can be your worst enemy. Don't trust anyone who suggests you have mental issues, because it's normal to have issues of anxiety when you're under stress with concerns of *physical illness* and homelessness, as a result of BP's negligence which resulted in our perturbed environment.

    You need medical doctors who deal with physical disease and assaults (toxins), not psychiatrists or therapists -- unless you have asked for such assistance: You need money to relocate and for damages.

    Also, because you love your children, keep them away from your children. Child Protective Services is an out-of-control agency that can take your children based on anything they wish to accuse you of.

    God bless and take care.

    If its a BP person *** them
    They are the enemy within
    Gulf War II and we are losing

    EDITED BY MODERATOR: GARY PLEASE STOP WITH THE VIOLENT THREATS. IT IS A WASTE OF TIME DELETING THEM.
