V tokratni oddaji bom spregovorila o tematiki, ki še vedno vzbuja toliko strahu. Na naši strani bivanja predstavlja konec, v drugih ravneh bivanja pa nov zacetek. Zvedeli boste, kaj se zgodi z našo dušico potem, ko zapusti fizicni svet. Tako kot rojstvo, bi morala biti tudi smrt stvar zavestne izbire.
Odkrivali bomo tancice skrivnosti, bodite z nami, zelo zanimivo bo.
Please join us as we discuss Mental Illness. "What's on My Mind." With, Ms. Ashley Smith.
Ashley Smith was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in 2007 after stealing a military truck and leading the police on a high speed chase -- a joy ride that landed her in jail.
"I heard voices. I saw images of people following me that scared me. I thought my life was in danger,"
After receiving treatment for her illness and learning to cope through medication and a strong support system, Smith decided to draw awareness to stereotypes by beginning her own nonprofit, "Embracing My Mind."
Ashley Smith's book "What's on my Mind is available on Amazon, please see a review below:
"Ashley Smith wrote her book according to the format of the NAMI In Our Own Voice presentation where people share their own experiences with their mental health problems. Ashley's experience is very unique and she is able to clearly describe what happened to her, what she experienced (in terms of her symptoms), how her family supported her, and how she was able to get treatment and move on with her life. This is a wonderful guide for people with loved ones suffering from mental illness and those who have a diagnosis. Ashely is an incredible woman whose story will inspire and encourage others to seek help and overcome their own mental health issues.

Let's take remove the shame and embarrasement that's attached to Mental Health Illness.
Wallach on Law, Fire & Gasoline --When the Mentally Ill Meet Police. Featuring Ron Honberg of NAMI (the National Alliance For Mental Illness)
Officer-Involved Fatalities & Shootings on the mentally ill are becoming commonplace. In August, Ezell Ford was killed by two Los Angeles County Police Department officers, who stopped him because he was acting strange, and when a struggle ensued, killed him when they believed he was reaching for their weapons. Three months earlier, in Detroit, Dontre Hamilton was lawfully sleeping in a public park and had just been questioned by two officers and deemed a non-threat. A third officer later woke him with a baton, and when a struggle ensued, the officer shot Mr. Hamilton 14 times killing him. Neither victim was engaged in illegal conduct, and both suffered from mental illness. None of these officers received “Crisis Intervention Training”—which teaches law enforcement officers how to identify and respond to those afflicted with mental illness. Ron Honberg of NAMI joins us to talk about what is needed and why.

The old man who sits on the corner rocking back and forth and talking to himself. The single mom whose kids seem to be raising themselves becasue she rarely gets out of bed. The aunt that the family always labeled as "eccentric." What may have just been cast off as odd may actually be very serious in nature and in need of attention. Chances are none of these people have ever received a diagnosis or treatment.
Mental health is just as important as physical health, but in many minority communities a significant number of people go overlooked and underserved. Most resign themselves to suffering in silence because of the cultural stigmas attached to mental illness. The inevitable outcome has been a rise in suicide, in crime, in poverty, and in the further fracturing of the family unit.
July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, and because mental health affects us all, we should all be discussing it. Join as as we chat with Laura Allen from The Ashley Jadine Foundation, a nonprofit in support of teen suicide awareness and prevention, and Cecelia Williams from NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness-Houston.
