An unexpected turn in our conversation has co-host, Tim Blue and myself talking about the challenges of personal stigma that we face when we are diagnosed with a mental illness. How is it that all is lost about what we believe we are and what we could be just by a simple diagnosis? Check out our show and hear our thoughts on the topic!
It's hard enough having romantic relationships WITHOUT a mental illness!? Ever wonder what it is like to try to have a 'normal' relationship while living with a monstrous disorder in your brain? Tim Blue and I will talk about some of the difficulties as well as some good advice on how to navigate relationships with mental illness (hopefully successfully!!)
Jennifer Hill from the Colorado Mental Wellness Network will also be joining to talk about their services here in Colorado as well as their upcoming fundraiser!
What is a perfectly balanced mind? On the other side of that, how would you know if something was amiss with your thinking? What’s normal and how does a person recover from being challenged by mental illness? Do you suffer from any of the challenges of being unbalanced in an equally unbalanced world?
Join us as with speak with author, Linda Katz, author of Surviving Mental Illness, about her experiences of growing up with biopolar disorder, how she dealt with the stigma; and how she maintained her own stability.

Coming Out of the Closet, Finally Accepting Myself Completely
It hasn’t been easy living with Bipolar Disorder. Not only do I have to treat my intense moods that are the hallmark of the condition, but ever since I was diagnosed at 16, I was always taught directly, or indirectly, to be ashamed of who I am because of it. From the very beginning, close acquaintances, and society at large, have told me to hide that part of myself…to reject that piece of myself that’s “unacceptable” and “intolerable”. More stories about Mental Illness..You may not know you have it.
in Video Games
The team at Game Centric Radio will take on a hot-button topic -- depictions of mental illness in gaming! Whether we're looking at video games (from Borderlands to the depictions of Joker and Harley Quinn) to portraying mental illnesses (known as "derangements" in some systems) in table-top gaming, we'll be exploring accuracy and the fine line between "over the top" and downright offensive. We'll even look at character-based board/card games that touch on the subject, such as Gloom and Betrayal at the House on Haunted Hill.
Mental illness and Christianity have been at odds with each other for a number of years. For a long while, it was thought that any sign mental illness or cognitive impairment was a result of demonic possession. Later, those who suffered from these disorders were locked up in an institution away from the embarrassment of the family. Further still, as our medical knowledge grew, our diagnostic abilities have expanded our understanding of how the mind works. And yet, even today, the topic of mental illness is still a taboo subject.
For Christians who suffer from some type of mental illness or disorder, it may hit a double impact. For the godly woman who is torn between her faith and her health problem, she may be having a hard time with reconciling the condition of her soul with the condition of her mental health.
Do godly women and mental illness go hand in hand? Are they compatible with each other? Can a woman of faith still suffer from bipolar depression or anxiety attacks? Is her faith dependent on her mental state?
We'll be talking about this and more with our guest Barbara Rupp, author of The Woman at the Well Bible Study guide. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can download the WLUV radio mobile app. Or click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/s/7625919 Tune in!
One of the most highly stigmatized illnesses an individual can have is addiction. With more people stepping out with success stories, we are finally seeing the wheels turn in a positive direction for change and acceptance...but the pushback is still there. Today on Mental Illness Matters, we are going to chat about the lies people believe about addicts. We are also going to talk about how tough it is for individuals with a dual diagnosis, meaning addiction plus a mental illness.
There will be laughs. There will be stories. There will be making fun of Chrissie's hair.
Today, Ethan Smith--Spokesperson for the International OCD Foundation and Chrissie talk about hot topics associated with mental health, stigma, and our own crazy lives!
The truth about Mental Illness is that there are often people who are feeling like they need to seek help for mental or behavioral issues they may be experiencing. Unfortunately, many of them do not get the help they need because the idea of working with a mental health professional is taboo. There are many people in our community who equate this type of assistance with weakness or "craziness." Tune in tonight as we visit one of our most talked about shows of 2014: Breaking the Stigma. We will share some options that will help you if you are facing a difficult time. Mental Health is just as important to your livelihood and living as bodily health. It is a necessity to have balance... The is NO health without Mental Health!
Among the many kinds of adversities people can face, one of the most challenging is a chronic illness. I'm delighted to have Cindy Coney, author of The Wild Woman's Guide to Living with Chronic Illness, as today's guest. Cindy was diagnosed with lupus in 1980, and has used this as a catalyst to become an "ambassador of hope and resiliency." She is a speaker, author, expert, philanthropic force, and role model. We'll talk about the kinds of issues people with chronic illness face; the work Cindy does to teach, inspire, and help people; and resources that may be useful for people with chronic illnesses. If you'd like to learn more about Cindy and her work, please visit her web site.
