    Ep. 4: The Impact of Mental Health Stigma and Discrimination on Daughters/Sons

    in Family

    Myths, misunderstandings and stereotypes are common when discussing persons who have been diagnosed with a mental illness.  The "stigma of mental illness" can lead to the adoption of discriminatory and abusive practices. Over the last decade, much has been written about "stigma", but not it's impact on children.
    Tonight, Mike leads us in discussion on the impact "stigma" has on Daughters/Sons. We'll be reviewing a few themes: the messages young children receive; the messages that D&S tell themselves as they form identities separating them from their parents; the messages we receive from service providers and others involved in mental health advocacy. We will also share how discriminatory practices can impact the lives of children.
    We will finish by addressing positive experiences and messages, which can lead to resiliency and improved self-esteem.

  • Does Divorce Still Carry A Social Stigma For Those Running For Public Office?

    in Women

    A man or woman's private life should be able to remain private, but when one seeks public office, all things are scrutinized. In this election season, candidates are being evaluated on all things that indicate ethics, trustworthiness, dependability and integrity. In the past, a failed marriage made one practically unelectable to public office. Couples in conflict put on a good public front in order not to damage the campaign. Does divorce still carry the social stigma it use to in the past? Can a person win a public office after a messy public divorce?

    Divine Inspiration with your Hosted Alicia Monet

    REBIRTH:Extra Sensory Perception What a Extrasensory perception {ESP}? A lot of times ESP is viewed as having a special ability or a sixth sense.

And the list goes on and on. Tonight we will explore the vast world of ESP and speak with Psychic Medium Goddess Isis and Oracle Namaste Moore about when they realized their ESP, the fear and stigma about it, and how they are Now empowered by it and empower others. Call in 516-590-0975 Share your ESP experiences, comment, ask questions.
