Author and mental health counselor Nina Bingham discusses Suicide Prevention. She educates not only from her academic knowledge, but shares from her own hard-won life experience in a new and profound way. In private practice since 2003, she has treated individuals and couples with a wide variety of mental health issues. Her fifth book, “Once The Storm Is Over: From Grieving to Healing After The Suicide of My Daughter,” is due out in early 2015. It’s the autobiographical confession of a counselor who lost her teen daughter to suicide. What she learned about love and forgiveness changed her life forever.
Topics discussed on our show are listed below. The full blog article and how to contact Nina can be found here:
We asked Nina to tell us about her work, and her new book, Once The Storm Is Over:
What is the book’s message?
What impact did your daughter’s suicide have on you?
What are some factors that have helped you overcome the grief, and were key to your healing?
If a mental healthcare professional is experiencing symptoms, or one of their family members is, what is your advice for them?
How has coming out of the mental health closet changed your life?
What can be done to address the stigma that has accompanied mental illness in the past?
If our listeners have a friend or family member who is struggling with mental illness, or if they are, what should they do?

During a visit to Florence Italy we met with a local psychotherapist, Dr. Paolo Molino. It was very interesting to get his views on mental health and the stigma surrounding seeking treatment in Italy.
We discussed his use of Gestalt Psychology, EMDR, emotional clearing for him in between client visits, and how mental illness is viewed in Italy. Paolo is fluent in English, French, and Italian which allows him to work with travelers, expats, and students.

Dr. Gary Blau, Chief of the Child, Adolescent and Family Branch of the Center for Mental Health Services, joined Dr. Greene this month to discuss his work in the field of mental health. Among other issues, Dr. Blau discusses the alarmingly high rate of children in need of mental health services and the much lower rate of care available. He recommends not only expanding the number of health care providers, but also expanding the thinking of who could be helpful in treating these issues. Along these lines, he introduces the idea of mental health first-aid as a critical first step in providing appropriate services to children with mental health needs. In addition, Dr. Blau discusses the importance of a strength-based treatment model and the feasibility of family-driven, youth-guided service provision.

We will discuss the various impairments for mental health and those signs and symptoms as defined by standards of the Social Security Administration
We've become numb to the mass shootings, stabbings, and erratic behavior displayed by the influx of recent news stories. It's easy to write off the actions of others as just 'bad behavior' but what happens if we dig deeper, if we start to talk about mental health issues? Depression, bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia etc. are more common than many may realize but why are we still so afraid to talk about these issues, too afraid to seek help? Why are so many told to just 'pray it off'? Join us as we discuss the eye-opening statistics, the reality of the state of mental health in America, and ways to help those suffering and in need of mental health support. Let's discuss...
We will talk the issues that surround not just mental health issues within the congregation but with the Pastor. We'll deal with the strain that comes with Pastoring and some events that come from it if not dealt with properly.
