Point of View

This article explains how Postpartum should be treated without stigma and as a serious mental illness. It does this by interviewing a woman who had gone insane from the disease and was treated with prejudice and stigma from those who could help her.

Support for the Thesis

The thought for the woman suffering from the disease shows how women in the same condition are now receiving a spotlight. The press, the public, and the woman herself have been working to fight against the prejudice that had come with women having postpartum depression.

Point of View

Contrary to the previous article, this one appears to be against my thesis by mostly stating the stance of the mental institutions of America in the past. It later gives an insight by one doctor on methods in which people with mental illnesses can better themselves other than by peers.

Support for the Thesis

The article mostly applies to a range of mental illnesses, and among those is Postpartum Depression. The encouragement of the doctor to use techniques on yourself both emphasizes the importance of self-righteousness along with a different outlook to old, worn out ways.

Point of View

The basic idea of the article is that the Girl Scouts of America are issuing patches to those who show their service in raising awareness for the mentally ill. The patch system involves issuing a patch whenever a certain task is fulfilled. A gallery of patches can be seen below.

Support for the Thesis

The Girl Scouts are treating mental illnesses (including postpartum depression) with much more care than the people in the past. The more patches distributed, the more that these illnesses are treated and thought of.
