Also, what will the future be like when we are all ENHANCED with computer chips, etc. When will the CYBORGS arrive. How crazy powerful will AI be? Also, Lew will probably babble a bit about Civ IV, and Galactic Civilizations III (well at least that game is about Space).
When it comes to medical assistance, public attention and resources, mental illness has been put on the back shelf around the globe for centuries now. How mental illness has been perceived and dis [AB1] shuffled, and what has kept it from getting its past due recognition, is stemmed from a long list of factors. Some such as ignorance, isolation, discrimination, and prejudice; has have negatively impacted the labeling theory, which is attributed and linked to stigma associated with mental disorders; and such stigma can be eliminated, if we can all recognize that the mentally ill can be productive members of society. Social stigma has been, and still is, the utmost contributor to the distant silence that has inhumanely sustained mental illness in asylums, and along with family secrets, such as “differences" never to be shared with neighboring people or friends of employment, in fear of judgment or loss of job. There isn't anyone who isn't affected by mental illness. It affects someone's family member, to in all different ethnic groups, from the young to the old, to your community, schools or place of employment, or even maybe yourself. Mental illness is a costly, debilitating disease, and it comes in many different forms. Unfortunately, it gets more recognition through stigma than public awareness and education; therefore, we must make an effort, and all learn what it means to live with mental illness and how society can work together to break down the barriers from stigma associated with it. Please join me this Friday night Feb 28th at 7pm CT as I discuss this delicate topic that so many are affected by.

The old man who sits on the corner rocking back and forth and talking to himself. The single mom whose kids seem to be raising themselves becasue she rarely gets out of bed. The aunt that the family always labeled as "eccentric." What may have just been cast off as odd may actually be very serious in nature and in need of attention. Chances are none of these people have ever received a diagnosis or treatment.
Mental health is just as important as physical health, but in many minority communities a significant number of people go overlooked and underserved. Most resign themselves to suffering in silence because of the cultural stigmas attached to mental illness. The inevitable outcome has been a rise in suicide, in crime, in poverty, and in the further fracturing of the family unit.
July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, and because mental health affects us all, we should all be discussing it. Join as as we chat with Laura Allen from The Ashley Jadine Foundation, a nonprofit in support of teen suicide awareness and prevention, and Cecelia Williams from NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness-Houston.

Many people think that recovery from drug and alcohol addiction is a lost cause when in reality there are approximately 25-40 million people who consider themselves to be in active, stable long-term recovery. Based on those numbers, most people probably interact with someone in recovery on a daily basis, but they don't even know it because it's not talked about openly. Dr. Kelly and the Recovery Research Institute's mission is change that stigma and show people, through science, that recovery is not only possible, but it is the likely outcome.
On this episode we will talk to Dr. Kelly about addiction, stigma and recovery and how understanding the neuroscience of addiction will help alleviate that stigma.
