    Speak Life Radio ~ The Importance of Mental Health CheckUps

    Everyone is familiar with the concept of a periodic medical checkup --- some sort of scheduled doctor's visit to check your blood pressure, weight and other physical benchmarks.

    The notion of a regular mental health checkup is less established, perhaps because of the historical stigma about mental illness. But taking periodic stock of your emotional well-being can help identify warning signs of common ailments like depression or anxiety. Such illnesses are highly treatable, especially when they are identified in their early stages, before they get so severe that they precipitate some sort of personal -- and perhaps financial --- crisis.

    "Absolutely, people should have a mental health checkup" our guest tonight is Tish Granville a licensed professional clinical counselor employed  with Emerge Counseling Services in Akron Ohio. She serves many children, adolescents, adult woman, and couples in an outpatient setting; treating various mental health and relationship issues.

    She also is Co/Founder of Center of Holistic and Intergrative Health LLC; a mind - body - spirit wellness organization that focusses on educating individuals in the community on holistic wellness.

    Tish is a newly wed who enjoys reading, nature, art, spending time with loved ones and writing. Please join us!!!!!

    Suicide Prevention: Nina Bingham – Mental Health Counselor and Author

    in Psychology

    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?

  • Rebelution Radio looks at police, mental illness, poor methods + poorer results

    in Comedy

    There is no disputing statistics. They are gathered from events, not "scenarios". They are made up of real people, real lives, real deaths. The steady decline of mental health facilities, mental health workers and mental health budgets has left far too many outside the help they need. One out of three people will experience some sort of mental health issue in their lives. Do you think that adequate services should be available for these episodes? Or do you agree with the "modern" methods of eliminating services and pretending the problem doesn't exist? Media, and by reflection the general public, tend to marginalize people who don't fit the "norm", whatever the hell that is. What if it is your loved one, your friend, yourself that needs the help required to regain your direction and focus?

    Kelly Thomas. Martin Hall. Ashley Smith. Jeffrey Towe. Teresa Sheehan. Barbara Stewart. James Popkowski. Bartolo Ford. Thousands more like them. Who are these people? They are people who needed help but none was available. They were left to deal with police. We know how police deal with "non-compliance". Most of the time, it is "Obey or Die". But thankfully, not all.

    If law enforcement is forced to become front-line mental health workers, why are they not being instructed how to deal with these circumstances? CIT (Crisis Intervention Training) is slowly becoming the standard. Budget restraints are the excuse being used to delay and deny it. What has to change to help save lives and prevent social chaos from protests?

    Guest host @canadianglen is joined by @Firec0re to examine this issue. The personal experiences of @Firec0re motivate her to be involved in this societal void to help correct it. Join us, listen, chat, call in. The final Saturday episode of Rebelution Radio for 2014 looks to take the warmth of the holiday season and talk about a big problem, in a positive way.
