    Talk Back Tuesdays: Mental Health and Literacy

    in Self Help

    According to the National Adult Literacy Survey two-thirds of students who cannot read effectively by the time they graduate 4th grade, dramatically increasing their chances of going to jail, as over 70 percent of American inmates cannot read above a 4th grade reading level.  A shocking one in every four children in America grow up without learning how to read.  


    The Social Science and Medical Journal reports low literacy has been correlated with poverty, unemployment and incarceration in prison and other institutions.It’s been associated with negative health outcomes for conditions like diabetes and hypertension, and more frequent hospitalizations for medical concerns. Each of these issues disproportionately impact community mental health service users.But literacy goes beyond reading and math skills.


    In light of the Floyd Mayweather illiteracy claims and his ability to flaunt money in response is a sign that we are sending the wrong messages to our kids. Instead of endorsing throwing a ball, picking up a microphone, or twerking how about reading. 


    Please join us on Tuesday as special guest Dr Benjamin joins us to discuss the imploring decline of a generation unable to read, unable to speak, and unable to progress in the world. 


    Dr. Benjamin is the highest paid administrator in the district of Harrisburg PA, who said ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. She's the person who is sought after for speaking with peers on reading initiatives to enhance the reading abilities of community children. She operates and owns a reading center to teach Black children how to read. Her experience as both an educator and community leader has really opened her eyes to the injustice happening in America today.She's the person who is called to speak with peers on reading initiatives to enhance the reading abilities of black children.

    Ep 3: Mental Health Literacy and COPMI Youth: The YES Program

    in Family

    Our guest tonight is Joanne Riebschleger, Ph.D., MSW.  We will discuss how children of a parent with a mental illness describe mental illness and their stated needs for information and support. Parent perspectives will also be discussed. Dr. Riebschleger is working toward building a ten session program called Youth Education and Support or YES. The YES program teaches middle school children about mental illness, and/or substance abuse disorders. In 2013-2014 it was one of 25 prevention programs selected nationwide for enhanced evaluation support by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) of the United States Department of Health and Human Services. Listeners will hear about the lively, hands-on activities of the program and emerging program outcomes.
    Joanne Riebschleger, Ph.D., MSW is a family member of people with mental illnesses and an Associate Professor of Social Work at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. She lectures internationally and nationally on issues pertaining to children with a parent with a mental illness (COPMI), their parents, and other family members. Examples of her current research in these areas include: 1) Developing an evidence-based mental health literacy program for middle school children who have a family member with mental illness and/or substance abuse; 2) Exploring parents’ who have a mental illness descriptions of their experiences with family courts; and 3) Assessing factors that contribute to effective recruitment of COPMI youth, parents, and families to prevention programs for the children.
