    FALLING APART- SUICIDE AWARENESS & PREVENTION.

    in Current Events

    Suicide is one of our most preventable form of death and yet it is the second cause of death for Ohio teens. September is Suicide Prevention & Awareness Month. Real Talk Live 216 wants to talk about this topic that many individuals at times really DON'T want to talk about but it's a conversation that is desperately needs        to take place rather SOONER than LATER.


    Many experts have said that a suicidal person may not ask for help, but that doesn't mean that help isn't wanted. Most people who commit suicide don't want to die—they just want to stop  ...


    On Saturday, September 6, 2014 at 7:30pm EST Real Talk Live 216 will be having an open dialogue on Suicide Awareness & Prevention and would like for each and everyone of you to join us as we bring forth important educational information and resources on this topic. Our Special Guest for the evening will be Tiffany Washington and Andrea Floro from LifeAct. Ms. Washington will be sharing her heart-warming story with the Real Talk Live 216 team and listening audience. Feel free to call in LIVE to speak with us and or guest, ask questions or give your comments at (646) 929-0243. SEE YOU THERE!

    SISFI's Suicide Awareness and Prevention Jan 2015 NY Tour Launch

    in Lifestyle

    SISFI is hosting our next Suicide Awareness and Prevention NY Tour January 4th – 31st 2015 across NYC, Long Island and Westchester to bring more awareness, services, programs, healing, resources and support to people facing serious life and emotional challenges, human suffering with suicide ideations, and supporting families who lost loved ones to suicide. This tour follows up on the great work with accomplished with the Sept. 17th – Oct 3rd 2014 tour where we hosted 16 community workshops, 17 radio shows, 3 community luncheons and private workshops with orgs and groups. We met 482 survivors (attempted and lost loved ones) locally through the tour and our Facebook account has generated over 500 new friends (mainly survivors) as a result of the outreach and promotions of awareness we’ve done since the last tour.


    And so we took what we learnt from meeting and talking with survivors to plan the contents and structure of the next tour in January by making it about healing and wellness. The theme of this tour is “Healing and Wellness for Survivors”. Many of the survivors we met during the September-October tour are still hurting, struggling and crying out for help in facing the challenges of living. Many have never reported their attempts nor struggles dealing with their losses. Many sought help and wasn’t able to get it. Their cries resonated with us and we wanted to make sure our follow up efforts would be that of healing and comfort for them.


    We are continuing the work and efforts of bringing more education, awareness, resources and training on the ground in communities so we can be more proactive and equipped in responding to those with emotional distress and suffering to prevent suicide.


    For full schedule of the January tour please check the website http://sisfi.org/suicidetours.html. Please share.


    Thank You,

    in Lifestyle

    SISFI is hosting a Suicide Awareness/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.

    A New Strategy for Suicide Prevention

    in Health

    Drs. Barbara Stanley and J. John Mann will be speaking


    Every year, there are more than 30,000 suicides and ten times as many suicide attempts in the United States.  Better prevention is urgently required. That requires improving our knowledge of the causes of suicidal behavior.  We know psychiatric disorders, most commonly major depression, are associated with suicide. But most people with a psychiatric disorder never attempt suicide. The group at higher risk of suicide have a predisposition to suicidal behavior. Learning about how genes and childhood experiences affect how we deal with stress, depression and make decisions, and how those functions are in turn related to brain functioning are key to understanding why people die by suicide.  The Conte Center for Translational Neuroscience at Columbia University and the New York State Psychiatric Institute, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, has been at the forefront of this research. 


    Differences in brain circuitry in suicide attempters are linked to the predisposition to suicidal behavior and are the result of a combination of genes and childhood adversity. Evaluating brain circuitry of family members of those who have suicided or made serious nonlethal suicide attempts may identify a higher risk group.  The Conte Center for Suicide Prevention uses two brain imaging modalities, positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), along with several biobehavioral measures to study risk and resilience factors for suicide in patients with major depression. 


    In this radio program, we will describe how we seek to prevent suicide by studying the brain biology and abnormalities in stress coping and mood regulation that increase risk of suicidal behavior, and then seeking ways to reverse these effects.

  • 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.
