Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) and Sunday's "Community Matters" This Week feature Bill Murray, the nationally respected public safety and child abuse prevention, intervention and recovery advocate. Bill is founder of the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA), a 501(c)3. Originally he was best known for Los Angeles Community Policing (LACP), his reaction to the events of 9-11-2001. Bill's web site (LACP.org) has been continuously published since early 2002, and is the world's largest grassroots nonprofit effort devoted to community-based policing. In 2009, Bill launched the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA.org) as a grassroots effort, one based on his personal life experienced. "Very few adults escape years of severe childhood sexual abuse, pre-pubescent X-rated photography, sex trafficking, and a two week long kidnapping," Bill writes. "But I have, and for some 35 years I've been in recovery from its devastating effects. Once my parents were gone, I decided to devote my remaining time, money and available energy to this vitally important cause." After years of operating as a grassroots, all volunteer effort, and with over 2500 BlogTalkRadio shows in the ever-growing library, NAASCA became a public charity .. a 501(c)3 .. where the single purpose is to address issues related to childhood abuse and trauma including sexual assault, violent or physical abuse, emotional traumas and neglect from two specific perspectives: 1) educating the public, and 2) offering hope for healing and services to adult survivors. Join our hosts six-nights-a-week (all but Saturday), at 8pm EST (7pm CEN, 6pm MTN, 5pm PAC) for solution oriented discussions about the many issues of child abuse and trauma. These shows always include panel discussions, LIVE chat rooms, and frequent call-in participation.

Tonight's special guest is Tracey Maxfield, RN, from British Columbia, Canada, who says she's had a very interesting life story including childhood abuse, clinical depression, workplace bullying and suicide attempts. 'Escaping the Rabbit Hole: my journey through depression' is her first book and has received international rave reviews. "In a nutshell, I've been to hell and made it out alive," she explains. "I can show that despite experiencing horrific child abuse, you can have a good life. I can show that even after falling down the rabbit hole, you can heal and move forward on a new life journey that is better than you could imagine." She experienced her first episode of clinical depression in her twenties, and has lived with chronic depression ever since. However, nothing prepared her for the acute depressive episode she experienced in 2015. After enduring years of intense work place stress, harassment and bullying, she plummeted into an abyss of darkness, hopelessness and despair the likes of which she had never experienced before. Encouraged to write by a psychologist, Tracey began to heal and found that out of the darkness and despair, there is hope, there is life after depression. She has become a staunch advocate for Mental Illness and Mental Health Awareness and Bullying. She has met with teenagers ages 11 to 15 years to talk about bullying and mental illness. Tracey has made a commitment to make a difference in the world. Her philosophy is to Engage children and teenagers, to Educate them about mental illness and bullying and to Empower them to develop confidence and skills to continue to move ahead in their own life journey.
