Fights and arguments continued to plague the relationship between Sanchez and Buchholz and on July 20, she left him and descended into crisis. Emotional distress often exacerbates postpartum depression and Sanchez soon found herself in the emergency room at Metropolitan Methodist, asking for help. During this visit, Sanchez met with a counselor at the clinic that ushered her through her pregnancy. Upon speaking with the counselor, she stated that she had delusional, paranoid thoughts that other women were trying to breastfeed her baby and hearing voices which said that others would like to take her baby away. She also reported visual images of other children’s faces transposed on her baby’s face.
This translates to a rate of 2.25 children per 100,000 children in the general population and an average of nearly five children dying every day from abuse or neglect”. (www.childwarefare.gov) Human Rights Watch shares that “the real risks that children face are quite different: government statistics indicate that most sexual abuse of children are committed by family members or trusted authority figures, and by someone who has not previously been convicted of a sex offense.”(www.hrw.org) Consequently, when evaluating the evidence that is present it is safe to say, that despite all of the efforts that are put forth every day to protect our youth, some people still have the potential to prey on those whom cannot defend themselves. The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 has afforded the public with ammunition to fire back at those who prey on the vulnerable. Therefore, the foundation has been laid, for the public to build upon and grow with the knowledge that we are able to obtain to keep our children safe. Furthermore, we cannot solely rely on law enforcement, and others to keep our children safe we have to be proactive within the

In the article titled, "The Lived Experience Of Pediatric Burn Nurses Following Patient Death." (Kellogg), nurses who work in the pediatric burn unit are interviewed about what they do as well as how they deal with the loss of patients. The conclusion of these interviews is that these individuals do not feel well prepared enough on how to properly handle the death of a patient and they all seemed to agree that grief counseling would have greatly increased their ability to get through these tough losses without starting to hate their job or not doing their job well enough. Another real life account comes from a working NICU nurse whom I interviewed named Clorinda Bryant. She told me all about how she absolutely loves her job and how she loves working with all the babies, but she concluded that by saying that it is a tough job to perform because “these babies have just come into this world and it seems unfair that sometimes they are taken out of it so quickly.” (Bryant) She told me how the hospital she works at does not have any services available to its workers regarding counseling and that if they need help dealing with a loss, they are expected to get their help outside of work and not deal with it there.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in the book Mental Health: A Report of the Surgeon General, reports that “[o]f children ages 9 to 17, 21 percent have a diagnosable mental or addictive disorder that causes at least minimal impairment” (http://www2.nami.org/Template.cfm?Section=federal_and_state_policy_legislation&template=/ContentManagement/ContentDisplay.cfm&ContentID=43804). With numbers as high as twenty-one percent, this is an issue that is probably more widespread than we realize it is. Statistics like these raise many questions as to just how many characters are afflicted with mental illnesses. One such case is Holden from the book The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, who may have any of a number of mental illnesses
