Can Someone With Clinical, Chronic Depression Claim Disability?

Question by mommyo: Can someone with clinical, chronic depression claim disability?
A friend of mine has terrible depression that is controlled by medication. Even though it is being treated, she still has her good and bad days. It has affected everything in her life and she finds it difficult to work. The problem is made worse by the fact that employer after employer seems to see her problem as a character flaw. Can she claim for some kind of disability insurance? I know people who are on disability for other kinds of chronic illnesses. Does depression count?

Critiques of the WWE’s “Wellness Program” — What Is Wrong With This Picture?

Question by Whitewolfct: Critiques of the WWE’s “Wellness Program” — what is wrong with this picture?
Since Jeff Hardy is the current topic of the day, I just thought I’d bring up a related and perhaps more important issue and question. Concerning WWE’s “Wellness Program” (see link for details), do you think there are problems with the way the WWE is dealing with substance abuse? It seems to me like the Wellness program is more of a patch-up job than a real solution. Too many wrestlers have been lost and too many more are getting addicted to steroids, drugs, GH, painkillers, et cetera — are random testing and mandatory suspensions real solutions? Do they merely pay lip service to much bigger problems that the WWE isn’t able or willing to deal with?

Why Do Liberals Think It’s Okay for Minors to Get Abortions WITHOUT Parental Consent?

Question by Lady Laissez Faire: Why do Liberals think it’s okay for minors to get Abortions WITHOUT Parental consent?
The ACLU is threatening to sue a California school district after it changed a policy to require teenagers get parental consent to leave campus for confidential medical services.

The Vista Unified School District board voted unanimously Thursday to change its existing policy that allowed students to be excused for confidential appointments — including abortions — without notifying parents, according to the North County Times.

The ACLU of San Diego County and the National Center for Youth Law claim the new policy violates state law, KPBS reported.

According to lawyers, California allows young people to leave school without parental consent to deal with sexual, mental, substance abuse or reproductive health issues, the station reported.

But school trustees say that depends on how the law is interpreted.
