    The Power of Sharing your Story with Mental Illness: Chrissie Hodges & Ro Vitale

    in Health

    How do you become a mental health advocate? How do you break down stigma surrounding mental illness? How do you start to heal, love, and accept yourself with a mental illness?
     


    SHARE YOUR STORY!


    Mental illness makes us feel SO alone sometimes. What you don't know is that hundreds of thousands of people are feeling the same way that you do with some of the same symptoms! There is so much healing and power in connecting with individuals who have experienced mental illness. You don't ever have to be or feel alone with your experience.


    Also, you don't have to have a mental illness to be an advocate! Do you support better care for mental health? Do you have empathy and compassion for the topic of mental health? Speak up and let people know you support others in their mental illness challenges and you will be an advocate as well!


    Ro Vitale and Chrissie Hodges, both advocates for mental health share their experiences of how powerful sharing their personal stories changed their lives and others.


    Thank you for the support and courage to share your own journey!

    C.D. - Carey, Bland & Holloway: The Saga of Black Women and Mental Illness

    in Islam

    ASA, 


    Over the past few years, we have witnessed tragic events regarding black women.


    In 2013, Miriam Carey drove dangerously close to both the White House and Capitol Building, with her 1-year old child inside, before she was gunned down by police.


    In July, Sandra Bland, driving in Texas, was stopped for a traffic infraction. She ended upbeing arrested,and was later found dead in her cell. A suicide, according to official reports. 


    In Las Vegas this week, Lakeisha Holloway drove her car into a crowd of people, killing 1, injuring 37.  Herr 3-year child was with her. 


    While we can look at these as isolated incidents, one cannot help seeing them from a larger context of the mindset of black women in America, compounded by mental illness. 


    Either way, the social implications are glaring and demand urgent and immediate attention. 


    I would be remiss not to acknowledge the courage, decency and faith, displayed by a group of Muslims in Kenya, who stood up to a band of terrorists who wanted to kill the Christians with whom they rode, on a bus. 


    Because of this, only 2 were killed. Allah Bless their souls - whatever their faith - AMEEN!


    (They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right,- (for no cause) except that they say, "our Lord is Allah". Did not Allah check one set of people by means of another, there would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of Allah is commemorated in abundant measure. Allah will certainly aid those who aid his (cause);- for verily Allah is full of Strength, Exalted in Might, (able to enforce His Will).

    Mental Illness & Marriage:Using the C.O.A.C.H. Method

    in Health

    Mental illness is rough on relationships of any kind, especially on couples. “The stress level often stretches into a crisis mode, in which managing the illness becomes, for all intents and purposes, the sole function of the relationship.”


    “The mental illness has a way of directing the functionality and dynamic of the relationship, rather than the individuals involved. Nevertheless we have to remember that the people involved in the relationship have the ultimate control.


    Join me, MSKeepItMoving and my special cohost, Michael “QuietStorm” Walton as we discuss the strain Mental Illness can put on your relationships. Get some tips on how you can maintain a healthy relationship rather than being consumed and controlled by Mental Illness.

    Borderline Personality Disorder: Roopa Grewal's Story

    in Health

    Arguably one of the most misunderstood and stigmatized mental illnesses, Roopa Grewal educates us on living with Borderline Personality Disorder.


    Admittedly, I believed the negative hype about Borderline Personality Disorder as individuals with aggrandized and emotional drama-seekers...until I actually met people who suffer with the disorder. Not only are people with BPD incredible human beings, but they are some of the most resilient individuals I have come in contact with. I cannot imagine what it must be like to not only struggle with the debilitating symptoms of BPD but to also endure the crippling stigma surrounding the diagnosis.


    It's time to take a better and more positive look at Borderline Personality Disorder. It's time to start treating individuals with this disorder without stigma or judgment. Roopa Grewal is an example of what it is going to take to change this perception. She proudly speaks out about her story and the reality of Borderline Personality Disorder.


    Tune in to hear my interview with her and to learn more about the highly stigmatized diagnosis that is Borderline Personality Disorder.
