The state has lost twice in court already. I grew up in Claremont where they were the first to sue the state over educational funding and it was found back then the way educational funding is done in the state is unconstitutional. I’m no lawyer or constitutional expert but I don’t understand how the state has lost multiple times now and has pending lawsuits going on again and yet they’re not forced to make changes.

I think more than anything it’s still the stigma. Took a long time to admit I had issues with anxiety because I was so worried what people would think. Then even when I admitted to myself I should speak to someone I’d literally run into and out of the therapist’s office to avoid being seen. Until we treat getting help for mental health issues like any other health problem I’m sure a lot of people are going to avoid seeking treatment.

I see some comments on Facebook pouring out sympathy for this girl but I’m sorry, I don’t care how bad your circumstances are - you do whatever’s best and necessary for the well-being of the child. There were alternatives available including the safe haven law. Instead she left this premature newborn baby unclothed and exposed to harsh winter temperatures. She does not deserve this child and can only imagine the poor life it’s suffer if it were to remain in her care.

They had sent out letters a while back talking about the updated system saying how you would receive an email with your is new account number and to reset your password in order to be able to log into the new system, but when I tried logging in with my old login information it worked just fine. Make sure you use the new site though. There’s also an app now available.
