Today's show will be an open discussion of current events. Please tune in as we look at what is happening in our world from a thoughtful, yet realistic approach. There have been numerous police caused killings of African Americans, a continuous amount of domestic killings; murder for hire and murder suicides, killings of the elderly, and now a thought to be serial killer of the homeless in Atlanta, GA. What is going on???
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.

This segment will be the beginning of a series, where we explore why Pres. George Implemented his New Freedom Initiative. This was in response to the consumers having unfair treatment limitations and financial requirements for mental health benefits,using a fragmented mental health system and fighting the stigmatism surrounding mental health issues.
I will discuss what a ghost whisperer is and why these spirits come after they are dead. It is different than being a sensitive or a psychic. I will explain that to you. I have a client on Kasamba who is able to see through her boyfriend's eyes and he isn't dead. I will discuss this ability. I will also talk about mental telepathy as well.
Awakening your spirituality does allow you to have many more gifts.
I will answer your psychic questions on this episode as well.
