    Disabled Veteran Radio To Debate The Suicide Prevention Bill

    in Current Events

    Today on Disabled Veteran Radio I will debate The Suicide Prevention Bill That President Obama just signed into Law. The Bill is named after Clay Hunt of Texas, a Marine Corps combat veteran who struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan and who killed himself in March 2011 at the age of 28. I have the audio of President Obama at Todays signing of The Suicide Prevention Bill 19 minutes. My question I am 45 years of age I have had PTSD since January 1990 and no one has never ask me to speak minus the small Talk Radio Shows I get on as a caller but FOX, CNN, CBS, NBC , ABC nobody is calling. My current Veterans Administration Psychatrist states I should have been diganosised with PTSD on the date of discharge but she is afraid to come out and make this statement because she will be fired honest to GOD ! But is any Senator or Congress Person or even The President listening to my side of the story pertaining to PTSD or are they calling my current VA Psychatrist to a Congressional Hearings to testify. How she is trying to help the disabled veteran and if she says something that needs to be corrected like in my case The wrong misdiganosis of personality disorder that I was labeled with so that me and Thousands of other Disabled veterans would miss out on VA BEnefits for years. This is the same Dam thing they did to Veterans, when our own Governemnt gave them Agent Orange. The bureaucracy yes does defintley stinks. But I will try Former Govenor Charlie Crist in this broadcast. I will reach out to Chuck Harder and I invite your calls.

  • Mr. Brett A. Scudder introduces The Suicide Prevention Institute

    in Lifestyle

    It is with great anticipation and humility that Mr. Brett A. Scudder will announce and introduce the Suicide Prevention Institute, and the work being done to provide quality real-life certification training courses for non-mental health professionals across the US. The challenges being faced by many communities is that access to mental health professionals is very limited and time delayed. People in crisis sometimes needs someone to just listen and help them navigate the maze of services, programs and mental health conditions that may exist and/or arise out of their crisis.


    With trained mental health and suicide first aiders on the ground in communities, the access to someone with basic first aid knowledge of mental health and mental illnesses can save many lives before they get into crisis stage/mode.


    Some of the training courses to be offered are in various in Mental/Behavioral Health, suicide prevention, domestic violence and trauma for non-mental health professionals.


    We look forward to the partnership and collaboration with the institute and expanding on both efforts to reach, teach and empower more people and communities. Listen the presentation to learn more about this important effort and work being done by the institute. There will be more information provided as the institute finalizes their website and social media.


    The website is www.suicidepreventioninstitute.org. Like us on Facebook www.facebook.com/suicidepreventioninstitute and Follow us on Twitter www.twitter.com/suicideinstitut

    Cancerous Stories, Part 3: Cure and Prevention

    in Psychology

    In today's story we will continue with the metaphor of cancerous ideas spreading throughout a society and its body politic. The murder of innocents in France, Denmark and other world capitols supposedly bastions of democracy frighten me. I feel increasingly hopeless with the rise of anti-semitism and religious hated in general, the increasing deradation of women, and the general failure of political leaders and citizens to theorize as to the cause and cure of these cancers as well as suggesting ways of meeting them except by surgery provided by military activity. I despair as authoritarian regimes fail and are replaced by totalitarian demogagues demanding total obedience to their hate filled ideologies. I cringe as science, free inquiry, abstract thought, respect for facts and individual creativity are replaced by concrete thought and destructive fantasies accepted whole and literally. I watch in terror as education is demeaned and scapegoats are sought on who can be blamed for the problems created by poverty, hopelessness, social injustice, rank materialism, and our general fear of facing monumental environmental degradation. I cannot sleep nights as I have come to believe that political democracy (my beloved America in particular) the surest immunity against the spread of cancerous fantasies is in retreat and decline. I do this podcast to give myself hope and to live up to the ideals that I still believe in.

  • A New Year and another Relapse; Lets Talk Prevention and Intervention!

    in Family

    Drug and alcohol rehab statistics show that the percentage of young and old who will relapse after a period of recovery ranges from 50% to 90%. This is a frightening statistic and it is often used as justification for those who wish to carry on with their addiction. What these figures hide is that there are things that the individual can do to greatly increase their chances of sustained sobriety. Those people who are serious about aftercare greatly increase their chances of success. It is most often those who are not adequately supported in recovery that end up returning to their addiction. Many people claim that relapse is a normal part of recovery, but this is just not true. There is absolutely no advantage in continuously relapsing and each time the individual returns to alcohol and drugs they are taking a risk. Those individuals who are in rehab need to adequately prepare for their transition back home. This is a family disease and hopefully the family is involved and has sought recovery themselves and you have a supportive system to go home to. Although, you still need the willingness to do whatever it takes to stay sober, which is a nesessity and very vital to ones recovery. If people are not fully motivated they will struggle to make it through the early months of recovery. It is vital that newly sober people take their aftercare seriously. This could be a choice between life or death. By joining a 12 step group or using some other type of support they will be greatly increasing their chances of success. Join me and special guest speaker Rickie Lynn Harris on this vital topic Friday nite Jan 2nd at 9pm CT as we discuss prevention/intervention, hope and a healthier way of living!! at www.blogtalkradio.com/ritahodges
