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!

TappingStar welcomes back Deborah Miller, of the Oaxaca Project, to talk about her long-awaited book, The Dragon With Flames of Love. She lovingly details her years of work with children and families undergoing treatment for serious illness in this beautfully illustrated collection of stories and lessons learned from the remarkable children she's served. Using the childrens' own magical imaginings, she crafts a loving resource for children and families in serious circumstances.
Listeners will learn about introducing the EFT tapping process to kids or their parents, as well as medical professionals on the scene. How would this affect those in your life dealing with these kind of situations? Imagine if it were calm and peaceful around shots, IVs, and chemo treatments? What if you could teach a child how to get in touch with their emotions and empower them with courage and pain-reducing techniques?
Learn about these things and more when TappingStar visits again with Deborah Miller, Ph.D, tapping expert and advocate, and founder of the Oaxaca Project.

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.

Join me today as I speak with Hillaire Phillips to talk about her experience with PTSD, how it manifests in her life and what she does to manage it.
Wondering What Happened to Your Body?
Wondering Why You are Still Sick?
On Monday, November 9, 2015 at 8 PM (eastern time) Dr. Jess Armine will explain how stress creates illness. It's called the "Cell Danger Response".
We have always known that very stressors can create illness in the human body and, frankly, we have given it "lip service".
Last week Dr. Jess Armine and Shawn Bean attended SHEICON2015 given by Dr. Ben Lynch. Dr. Jess had the honor of boing o0ne of the speakers. The main feature in the entire seminar was the cell danger response and its relationship to mitochondrial dysfunction as well as the degradation of all your bodily processes.
In other words, the very basis of disease and illness!
Understanding the cell danger response is the path to healing. This upcoming Monday Dr. Jess Armine will, in his usual manner, make this complex concept easy to understand and fun! (trust me, it wasn't easy) :-)
Join us and learn! They'll be plenty of time for questions and answers. Dr. Armine will create a PowerPoint for everyone to follow along.
We promised you cutting edge research and we are delivering! See you then!

All The Things We Never Knew: Chasing the Chaos of Mental Illness
Sheila Hamilton is a reporter who lived the biggest story of herlife--her husband's descent into mental illness. Sheila Hamilton missed the signs as her husband David's mental illness unfolded before her. By the timeshe had pieced together the puzzle, it was too late. ...
Now, a decade after David's death, Sheila and her daughter have learned the power of choosing life over retreat; let themselves love and trust again; and understand the
importance of forgiveness. Their story will resonate with all those who have
loved someone who suffers from mental illness.
As I check out some news stories today, it strikes me that we are certainly living in a time in which it's time to get serious about our faith and whether or not we'll stand on and for it. It's been the case for a while, and really it's always been the case. But today I'll talk about a story that features the literal banning of the Christian cross by a nation's, a Christian nation's government. There's a story of the banning of Christmas trees and Christmas carols that promote Christianity by a VA hospital. Christians were once again killed for their faith in Yemen. And I'll throw in some of the LGBT pressures and madness as well as time allows. None of this is meant to be negative or to dwell on things. None of it is meant to despair. But it is meant to bring people to awareness and to hopefully make a decision. Will you stand for what is right? Will you stand for what is biblical? Or will you stand for, or rather fall aside to what makes life the most comfortable for you? The spiritual war is amping up to a fever pitch and being neutral is almost the same as being on the wrong side and on Satan's side rather than God's. There are two "saviors" coming, and one is fake. There are two "Christianity" religions being pushed, and one is fake. Can you identify which is which? Or will you be deceived and taken in by that which is fake? I hope and pray not, and trust those who study and try to keep their eyes open won't be swayed by faleshoods and nonsense. But many people are nonetheless, and today I'll be talking about it at 4:30 Eastern time and archived after that.
