This show will epxlore Gregg Loomis and Journey of Survival:
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?

Let's talk about Fire Safety and prevention. Jeff and both his 'staffs' did just that this past week, going into the schools and addressing citizens about 'blazing hell' - which turns into trauma for someone. We learned not to play with matches, and graduated to smoke alarms and personal fire extengushers. But, MR and MRS TBI (or Miss), do you know when to use, HOW to use, or properly checked the fighting apperatice?
Need help? Take notes. This is a fantastic opportunity to discus fire, EMT and first-respoce questions. Have any? Ever been on the other side, where you was the FIRST needing response, but was, uh, knocked out or something?
More first responce of the lawful side is expected.

Josh is also an emergency responder, thank you God - he's done it at my house a FEW times. My version of C.O.P.S. - Concerned, Offering Police Service. Talk to an officer, share and trade TBI concerns of living alone, confussion and efforts by both us, and them. Register.
Yep, Sting said I could, so I'm playing The Police during breaks tonight....

Sabrina and her special guest, Annette Sober, licensed substance abuse counseler, discuss, "teen suicide is a growing health concern. It is the third-leading cause of death for young people ages 15 to 24, surpassed only by homicide and accidents, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention", as reported by the American Psychological Association in 2014.
"Deaths from drug overdose have been rising steadily over the past two decades and have become the leading cause of injury death in the United States. Every day in the United States,113 people die as a result of drug overdose." CDC
The facts don't lie and losing lives to unnecessary overdoses is beyond tragic.
Which is why, providing overdose prevention and response education to drug users and their family and friends, is a harm reduction tool that we are clearly in need of today; not only for the person at risk of overdosing but for their family and friends as well.
Joining me today, to talk about overdoses, the benefits of Naloxone (a medication that reverses opioid overdose) and overdose prevention is Dr. Sharon Stancliff - an internationally known expert on opioid overdose prevention and Medical Director at the Harm Reduction Coalition.
November is National Runaway Prevention Month and Savannah's Park Place Outreach - Youth Emergency Shelter is there for both families and teens in need.
Street Outreach Program Coordinator, Kenneth Brown, talks to Open for Business® about the things that may lead to a teenager to runaway. He will also talk about Park Place Outreach - Youth Emergency Shelter and the impact it has on the community.
