Mental illness refers to a wide range of mental health conditions or disorders that affect your mood, thinking and behavior. Many people have mental health concerns from time to time, but a mental health concern becomes a mental illness when ongoing signs and symptoms cause frequent stress and affect your ability to function in your dailiy life.

Amy Beth welcomes James Hickman, author of The Mindful Son. A compelling memoir, the book provides an inside account of the world of mental health from the perspective of the patient, the healthcare provider, and the family member of someone with mental illness. At turns heart wrenching and hopeful, this book is ultimately life affirming and inspirational. It demonstrates, beyond question, that recovery is attainable and that the most daunting obstacles can be overcome through determination and the right mindset.

For years Andy hid his raging mania under a larger-than-life personality. He sought a high wherever he could find one, and changed jobs as some people change outfits -- filmmaker, art dealer, hustler; whatever made him feel like a cartoon character, invincible and bright. Electroboy is about living life at breakneck speed. Andy hopped on flights from New York to Tokyo and Paris at a moment's notice, spent $25,000 without a bit of thought on a huge shopping spree and stayed awake nights exploring the underworld of nightlife in Manhattan or whatever city he happened to be visiting, in search of the perfect high. But when Andy turned to art forgery, he found himself the subject of a scandal lapped up by the New York media, then in jail, then under house arrest. And for once he didn't have a ready escape hatch from his unraveling life. Andy was misdiagnosed by more than eight doctors and even when he was finally diagnosed with this chronic illness, he was treated unsuccessfully with any regimen of medication. Ingesting handfuls of antidepressants and tranquilizers, he felt his mind lose traction. With no hope of his condition stabilizing, he turned to the last resort: electroshock therapy also known as electroconvulsive therapy (or ECT). Andy underwent nineteen electroshock treatments over the course of about a year and a half. Electroboy is currently being made into a major motion picture. Not only is Andy working on a sequel to Electroboy, but he is also writing a self-help book for sufferers of depression and bipolar disorder. Please visit his official website for full bio and more information: http://www.electroboy.com
Andy joins us to discuss his book, his future projects, his own story and take callers who live with bipolar and depression. Feel free to call in even if it's anonymous.
"Racism is as American as apple pie" is the highly publicized quote from student activist Stokely Carmichael (later Kwame Toure) during the 1960s protest movement. As supporters of white police officer Darren Wilson collect money for his defense in the killing of unarmed black teen Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri, members of a white supremist hate group send out a message referring to Michael Brown as a "N-----r Thug" and praise the work of the Ferguson police department in killing him. For them, Darren Wilson is a hero. Racial hatred is as American as apple pie. But is it also a reflection of serious mental instability, an irrational fear that could prompt people to commit violent acts? Is it a condition to be isolated and treated, the way one treats those who suffer from schizoprenia or dementia, or any other mental illness that produces delusional thinking? Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. referred to the racist whites that threatened his life as "our sick white brethren." Those who are treated badly by sick racists often spend a lot of time trying to convince themselves that they are worthy of respect, rather than recognizing that the illness is within those who do not know how to respect others. A healthy mind has the capacity to recognize the good in others. A sick mind does not. Would you vote someone into office who suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and might become a serial killer? Then why allow those with the mental illness of racism to continue to get elected as mayors, appointed as police chiefs, or sit in courtrooms as judges? Should racism be identified and treated like a mental illness? If so, shouldn't the responsibility for removing mentally sick people from positions of authority rest on those who are mentally well?
Liberty is one of the key tenets in the foundation of our republic. Our instinct is to guard and protect it with all we have.
With the recent announcement that New York and New Jersey are mandating isolation for individuals deemed high risk to Ebola exposure, the topic of a government-ordered quarantine has been the subject of much debate. Many people fear these orders could be used against political enemies.
In this report, we will take a closer look at why the medical quarantine may actually be the only way to prevent so much of what we fear.
Also covered this report: Army study shows Ebola is airborne in lower temperatures; the Army is quarantining soldiers who have served in Africa; and, a memo from the State Department outlines plans to bring Ebola-infected foreign citizens into the United States for treatment.

It can feel like slippery territory. It's very difficult for a coach to know how to help a client who is suffering from mental illness. For that matter it can be difficult to even know for sure if a client is struggling with mental illness of what they are going through is "normal". They say there are very clear lines between coaching and therapy, and there is no place those lines are suppose to be more defined than around mental illness, and yet, when you're in it with a client, it can be anything but clear.
Everyone will be talking about Robin Williams today, so we don't need to. However, his passing has opened a window to talk about mental illness in the greater consciousness in a way we haven't had before. So, are going to discuss how to gracefully do that dance and those conversations with clients.
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.

About the Tour.
SISFI is hosting our Suicide Awareness and Prevention NY Tour on Sept. 17th - Oct 3rd across NYC, Long Island and Westchester to bring more awareness, services, programs and resources to address the increasing numbers of people facing serious life and emotional challenges, and human suffering with suicide ideations/thoughts, and supporting families who lost loved ones to suicide.
The theme of the tour is “Look into my heart and mind, tell me what you see”. It highlights the realities of not knowing what’s in a person’s mind or on their heart by what we see on the outside, and that we must engage in dialog and allow an open and comfortable atmosphere for people to open up and express themselves. The workshops and radio shows of the tour are scheduled at different times every day across the 3 cities.
We have aligned 15 community workshops, 3 luncheons and 15 radio shows to bring people, mental health professionals, energy therapists, health professionals, survivors and healers together to address this very serious and important topic affecting many people in our communities. While the community workshops are local in the 3 cities, the radio shows will have guests from across the country who lost loved ones, and practitioners who specializes in the support, treatment, recovery and healing of mental health, life coaching, emotional wellness and human suffering.
For full schedule of the tour check the website http://sisfi.org/suicidetours.html.
