Petition Tag - anxiety
WeCOPE is an acronym for We Change Our Personal Experiences. This is a social network movement that helps people to cope with their own personal problems. Maybe you/they are going through depression, anxiety, stress, divorce, or suicidal issues, etc. This is the way to go.
This is a place to come to whenever you are feeling down. A place to come if you want to share a word or two of encouragement.
I’ve created this site, so that people know that they are not alone. We need to show them that there is ALWAYS someone to talk too. There is always a shoulder to cry on. There will always be a helping hand.
Let’s come together as one to COPE: Change Our Personal Experiences!
Because we can COPE!
The Year of Mental Health Awareness will be a National initiative to raise awareness of mental health in our community, raise funds for mental health organisations in Australia and eradicate the negative stigma surrounding mental health and mental illness.
Mental health affects everyone! It is important mental health and mental illness is no longer a topic surrounded by a negative stigma and a taboo to speak about.
The year of mental health awareness will be the year to bring mental health out of the shadows and a topic of general discussion. We will raise awareness and funds for support services and research into various mental health facets, from learning difficulties, depression to dementia.
A proud initiative of United Youth Global - Hike for Happiness.
3. Cure R.A.D.
Return Anxiety Disorder (R.A.D.) affects millions of shoppers in the U.S. alone. What is R.A.D.? It's the feeling that comes over a person when they suddenly realize they have to return an item purchased online. It's that moment when joy turns to sadness, the cause of which is the understanding and realization of the ensuing lengthy and complicated return process.
Returns are easier now with EcoReturn which uses a smartphone and QR code to return items purchased online. A quick click instead of searching for an old-fashioned packing slip and/or wasting time on the phone with customer service representatives (after suffering through elevator music) and your done!. EcoReturn is the only cure for R.A.D.!
With EcoReturn, you will not only save the environment because it eliminates 100% of packing slip and return label waste, but you can also initiate a return in about 15 seconds. Want more proof? Watch the EcoReturn video here: http://www.youtube.com/ecoreturn . Do you want to help your friends and family members get cured of Return Anxiety Disorder? Sign the petition and share it!

Children across Australia, from as young as six years old are bringing home school work.
Some schools are giving students over two hours of homework each week night and more on weekends.
Children and youth are attending school for six hours a day. When you calculate their homework load on top of that they are working the equivalent of an average adult working day, somtimes more. This is stopping many of them from pursuing childhood activities like playing while it is still light outside, social activities, sports and participating in quality family time.
Then there is the addition of performance anxiety when doing assessment and assignment tasks and exam stress throughout high school.
The unrealistic workload for children and high expectations to perform academically for youth is having an emotional and psychologic effect on them and their families.
From November 1, the Government will limit the number of Medicare rebates patients can claim when they consult a general practitioner who specialises in mental health care.
The 'Better Access' program has been providing patients with up to 18 consultations, but from November 1 this will be limited to 10 consultations for common but disabling problems such as depression and anxiety disorders.
GPs who specialize in mental health care offer easily accessible, affordable help. They can prescribe appropriate medications and offer a range of counselling options for individuals and families.
Lately rodent images are being more and more often showed across all media, including TV, despite that many people find it absolutely inappropriate, offensive and upsetting.
Not to mention that images with rats and mice can cause severe discomfort and anxiety in kids and people, who have phobia for rats and mice. Please help to protect them by signing this petition.
Abortion is purposely taking the life of an unborn fetus. Abortion can lead to medical problems and anxiety problems.
We all have rights at the point of conception. When you choose to terminate the life of a human being, it is murder.
There is no faith or ideology that justifies this murderous and heinous act.
People do not understand that abortion leads to severe medical conditions. It is not a woman's choice to decide the life and death of another person.
The prevalence rate of 1 of every 150 makes autism one of the most common developmental disabilities, affecting more children than childhood cancer, Down Syndrome and juvenile diabetes, combined.
Autism manifests differently in every individual on the spectrum. However we all have three commonalities, we socialize intellectually, which effectively means we are genetically different than the general population. The second thing is that we are by definition an invisible class of people, third we don't lie (theory of mind).
Another misconception about us is that autism is more severe for some individuals than others, how can any researcher make this deduction when they have not worn our skin? I have High Functioning Aspergers, my language abilities are amazing, this being said I am rendered silent in social situations due to my anxiety, inability to trust, and how much I truly will bore my listener.
You can't begin to fathom the frustration, being ostracized, of knowing that for all of time I will never be able to communicate verbally to others. The anxiety, depression and isolation is overwhelming, when considering this idea. Do I really have the ability to speak? No only via typed words, the fear of not being able to figure out where people are coming from is debilitating. It is safe at home, I know that there are hundreds of thousands of parents who battle every day with the public school system.
You are not alone my child suffers every day he goes to school, his FAPE is violated, he is physically abused, misunderstood by professionals who carry titles that say they specialize in helping him. I have come to one conclusion, I can't hide anymore I will not tolerate another child being misunderstood by the public school systems in this country.
I will not see these children's unique gifts squandered away because they don't think like the rest of this world! Join me in signing this petition to demand that our Congress change the educational laws and system for education our very special children, and remove the glass that all autistic individuals stand behind.
My 12 year old is getting bullied at school. He has been punched in the face, spat on, punched in the back of the head, pulled out of his chair and pulled backwards off a bench. The principal said "boys will be boys".
My child has the right to go to school and learn without being assaulted! I will not sit back and allow this to happen! I'm not waiting for my child to commit suicide to take action. Please help and stand up for our children.
