    Voices InJustice talking STIGMA - Do others attach a stigma when they see you

    in Current Events

    Voices InJustice with Trish every Sunday evening at 9pm central time. We are a radio network production of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery. A community outreach focus in awareness, prevention, and empowerment to overcome our many challenges; learning together how to change the centuries of human trauma and teach our children a better way for their future.


    Tonight we are discussing STIGMA - Share your voice by calling Trish @ (929) 477-3163 or join the online chatroom as we address the many societal stigma attached to persons without ever knowing who they really are. We see obesity, bikers, the color of skin, a nationality, or even the economically poor neighbor down the street and we all pass judgement as if we know their life, but do we or are we repeating what our parents taught us? What are we as parents today teaching our children in an America, or other country, where we have such an entire mixed community attending school with our children?


    This is a very hot topic with all that happens in our world. We have economic breakdown and battles rising around the world. Our kids watch the news and hear about two or three gang related shootings everyday. They attend shcools where the bullying by judgement causes children as young as 9 years old to take their own lives. Will we ever be able to live in a peaceful accepting society? Give your teen, your child, the individual ability to learn who people are before they see a color, a tatoo, an eating disorder, or a poor neglected child suffering to get through everyday and instantly attach the centuries of judgement. 


    Visit our website, www.butterflydreamsabuserecovery.com where we provide information to understand our taught human behaviors of mankinds worst nature. Our shows are for entertainment purposes only. Invite your friends & family to join in live!!

    The Fascinating Journey of Regal Fro: Laqwanda's Story

    in Health

    Talking with Regal Fro, editor of The Emotional Detox Life about her incredible journey through psychosis and her resulting path to advocacy.


    I was mesmerized by Laqwanda's story-telling, how open she is about her experience, and her passion and drive to help others feel not so alone. It is so incredible to listen to someone fully disclose experiences with mental illness with compassion for themselves at the time with a touch of humor. There is no better way to race toward recovery than to be able to see yourself in your mental illness and find the ability to laugh! This was my kind of interview!


    Tune in to hear her fascinating story, and I hope she will come back on sometime and share more!


    You can find more about her and her advocacy on youtube.com at onementalvlogger
