    Prisoners in Prison + POW's/US Soldiers= PTSD

    in Self Help

    “MOTHER HORRIFIED AFTER JAILED SON PICTURED WITH SWOLLEN EYE AND ROPE AROUND HIS NECK”http://blacklikemoi.com/2015/03/mother-horrified-after-jailed-son-pictured-with-swollen-eye-and-rope-around-his-neck/


    Since the last week of March, social media continues to blow up commenting on this story. So much so, we wanted to hear your comments live on “talk back Tuesday’s.” Unfortunately too many mothers have cried over their sons being incarcerated, but how many of us focus on the safety of prison life? It may be more American to focus on the conditions of our loved ones who go off to war. Nevertheless, both present with more similarities than differences, when they return to civil society. Both prisoners and soldiers live in war zones that require them be in survive or die mode. Living at code red for a significant amount of time and then returning to civil society without any real transition comes down to trained assassins living in communities that do not recognize them. We only assume and make judgments about where they’ve been, and demand that they just fall in line with the rest of us. With social media giving us a glimpse of prison reality and our war hero’s returning home physically but function like they are still in level 5, means that we have to get real about PTSD and other mental dysfunctions brought on by extreme life experiences. Lets Talk!

    Talk Back Tuesdays:

    in Self Help

    This week we decided to look at the TV shows that are popular and cause much controversy and "Scandal" on our social media pages including: EMPIRE, Being Mary Jane, Scandal ,and How to Get Away with Murder to name a few. 

    If you watched last week's episode of Being Mary Jane they exposed the controversy behind The Black Man in Corporate America. Their struggles, Racism, Greed, and Fear, etc. Is "the life of a black man more difficult than any other demographic, including the black woman?"

    On EMPIRE we will discuss the case of Andre and his diagnosis of Bipolar. How accurate of a depiction does the show cover? How the family dynamics contribute or counteract his mental illness. We will discuss how the show portrays Black men and Psychological Health, what is bipolar disorder? What are the symptoms? How can people deal with bipolar disorder in their everyday life—whether they suffer from it or know someone else who does? And finally does the show offer an accurate picture of mental illness especially in the Black Community?

    Talk Back Tuesdays: The After Effects of Entertainment!!!

    in Self Help

    Last week we decided to look at the TV shows that are popular and cause much controversy and "Scandal" on our social media pages including: EMPIRE, Being Mary Jane, Scandal ,and How to Get Away with Murder to name a few. 

    If you watched lthe previous episode of Being Mary Jane they exposed the controversy behind The Black Man in Corporate America. Their struggles, Racism, Greed, and Fear, etc. Is "the life of a black man more difficult than any other demographic, including the black woman?"

    On EMPIRE we will discuss the case of Andre and his diagnosis of Bipolar. How accurate of a depiction does the show cover? How the family dynamics contribute or counteract his mental illness. We will discuss how the show portrays Black men and Psychological Health, what is bipolar disorder? What are the symptoms? How can people deal with bipolar disorder in their everyday life—whether they suffer from it or know someone else who does? And finally does the show offer an accurate picture of mental illness especially in the Black Community? 


    Now that the show has ended did it bring bout a different perspective, conscious awakening, or is it still considered entertainment? In retrospect do you still consider it Entertainment  or have you paid more attention to the content  and over the week recognized those issues in your personal or professional life? Bipolar, stressed out Black Men in Corporate America, Substaqnce Abuse Problems, etc.  We will look at it from the perspectie of music and television.

    Talk Back Tuesday's: Atlanta Public School Scandal!

    in Self Help

    Last Tuesday, eight Atlanta Public Schools employees were sentenced to prison in one of the largest school cheating scandals in American history. The educators were convicted of racketeering — a felony typically reserved for mob bosses, drug kingpins and terrorists.

    While similar scandals have occurred in 39 different states and Washington, D.C., the offenders have rarely been prosecuted as criminals. Yet in an unprecedented move, the prosecutors in Atlanta charged the educators under Georgia's "Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act" — a law passed in 1980 specifically to combat the scourge of organized crime. RICO laws, which EXIST at the federal level and in 33 states, empower prosecutors to go after the leaders of organized crime who order but do not personally commit crimes such as robbery, money laundering and murder. Individuals convicted under such laws can face up to 20 years in prison.

    Did the charges fit the crime? Was this organized crime? or simply unethical? Are we so familiar with justice not being served that when it is we think its unjust or even racism. Is this a prime example of overciminization in America? And most importantly What about the CHILDREN? 

    Call in and let's discuss this case and the educational system in America today. How can we improve or change the systemic and blatant disregard for education and justice for the real victims in this case. Come Get on the COUCH and let's talk about this and much more!!!!

    Talk Back Tuesdays: New Year....New Heights!!!!

    in Self Help

    We have come to the end of one year and about to enter into another. Right now we can consider that we are in between 2 worlds. We often tend to focus on our future plans and goals many times making what is called New Year Resolutions. I challenge that we look at the lessons we have learned from this past year and see what we can take with us and what we need to leave behind. Issues that have led to or contributed to mental stress, physical health and well being, spiritual growth and setbacks, financial decisions, education, career, family, love, relationships and so much more. Whether past reflections and future vision; Acceptance is the key to serenity.

    Come talk with the Counselors about Your New Year Resolutions, How you plan to grow spiritually, mentally, and physically. And does it take a NEW YEAR to bring about change? How will you change through many obstacles and challenges to get to the YOU, you desire?

    Talk Back Tuesdays: Break Every Chain

    in Self Help

    Psalm 2:3 ...."Let us break their chains," they cry, "and free ourselves from slavery to God." NLT

    How can families rally around each other in this time of distress? This is a question presented to the Counselors this week. We thought about how the culture of our mindset due to "racism" define our strengths, weaknesses, and vulnerabilities.

    How can we break the chains of violence, poverty, abuse, suicide, lack, failure, hurt, pain, malice, fear, hate,etc. We believe that change is inevitable and we are more than conquerors in Christ who strengths us. And our core value is instilled in knowing ' who you are and whose you are."

    Join us as we discuss how to break every chain and how to heal in a time of uncertainty and unrest.

    Talk Back Tuesdays: The Power of WORDS

    in Self Help

    Our words have the power to destroy and the power to build up (Proverbs 12:6). This is the season for celebration and festivities with loved ones and preparation for  The New Year. It is also a time of  violence and discontent in the world. It is so important that we learn to speak positive words over our lives and of those we love.


    Join The Counselors and as we work to transform your vocabulary and change the quality of your life. It is so important that we learn to speak life into our communities, finances, marriages, and ministries.


    Learn to release negative thoughts, negative words, and identifying the areas in your life where negativity dwells and learn how can you control and combat those behaviors. We will examine many of these words and thoughts and help you prevent these thoughts from manifesting in your life.

    Talk Back Tuesdays: Does the Black Church Perpetrate Slavery?

    in Self Help

    As we conclude Black History Month we wrap up our last segment with The Black Church. Has the Black Church Failed US?

    Come Get on the Couch as we discuss how far we have come in religion. What is holding us back and how can we improve. We will discuss the manipulation and control that is used in the church, church code and how to decipher it, and the lack of focus on mental health, substance abuse, incarceration, and domestic violence in the community, the congregation, and the pulpit..

    How many people worship their pastors instead of GOD? Do our churches focus more on Wealth than Health and Soul Saving? Are we representing anything different than we see in the WORLD?

    We hope all of you will join us for this discussion of how the one pivotal force in our communities has now turned into a "joke" for many non believers and a "circus" for Christians and believers to gather and become monotonous.
