Letter: Counselling better for mental breakdown than headlines
To the editor:
As we approach the Healthy Minds Canada/Bell Canada—Let’s Talk Day for Jan. 28, I found it interesting that page A13 of Jan. 23 Capital News edition held the bold title of Mental Health Services Enhanced and on the bottom was the turn for the front page story “Reporter May Face Criminal Charges in US, due to uttering death threats toward her less than loyal, hockey player boyfriend.
This 25-year-old girl doesn’t need a one year prison sentence. She needs counselling.
Assuming too that raking this girl over the coals of humiliation on the cover of her hometown paper that it must have been a pretty slow week in the news.
