    Mental Health in Italy: An Interview with Dr. Paolo Molino

    in Psychology

    During a visit to Florence Italy we met with a local psychotherapist, Dr. Paolo Molino.  It was very interesting to get his views on mental health and the stigma surrounding seeking treatment in Italy.

    We discussed his use of Gestalt Psychology, EMDR, emotional clearing for him in between client visits, and how mental illness is viewed in Italy. Paolo is fluent in English, French, and Italian which allows him to work with travelers, expats, and students.

She educates not only from her academic knowledge, but shares from her own hard-won life experience in a new and profound way. In private practice since 2003, she has treated individuals and couples with a wide variety of mental health issues. Her fifth book, “Once The Storm Is Over: From Grieving to Healing After The Suicide of My Daughter,” is due out in early 2015. It’s the autobiographical confession of a counselor who lost her teen daughter to suicide. What she learned about love and forgiveness changed her life forever.

    Topics discussed on our show are listed below.  The full blog article and how to contact Nina can be found here:

    We asked Nina to tell us about her work, and her new book, Once The Storm Is Over:

    What is the book’s message?

    What impact did your daughter’s suicide have on you?

    What are some factors that have helped you overcome the grief, and were key to your healing?

    If a mental healthcare professional is experiencing symptoms, or one of their family members is, what is your advice for them?

    How has coming out of the mental health closet changed your life?

    What can be done to address the stigma that has accompanied mental illness in the past?

    If our listeners have a friend or family member who is struggling with mental illness, or if they are, what should they do?

    Mental Health First-Aid

    in Psychology

    Dr. Gary Blau, Chief of the Child, Adolescent and Family Branch of the Center for Mental Health Services, joined Dr. Greene this month to discuss his work in the field of mental health. Among other issues, Dr. Blau discusses the alarmingly high rate of children in need of mental health services and the much lower rate of care available. He recommends not only expanding the number of health care providers, but also expanding the thinking of who could be helpful in treating these issues. Along these lines, he introduces the idea of mental health first-aid as a critical first step in providing appropriate services to children with mental health needs. In addition, Dr. Blau discusses the importance of a strength-based treatment model and the feasibility of family-driven, youth-guided service provision.

    Behavioral Health Compliance: An Interview with Theresa Wray, LMFT

    in Psychology

    Today we interview business owner, clinician, and consultant Theresa Wray of Synergy Consulting Services. A rare and exciting connection for us because of one major factor: Theresa loves finding needles in haystacks. In fact, she excels at it. All of the necessary yet hair pulling work that counselors and Behavioral Health organizations dread to do are actually fun for Theresa.  Things like reading your Managed Care contracts, auditing your charts, reviewing compliance plans, and verifying state regulations.  Enjoy getting to know her during our interview on Mental Health News Radio.  More importantly, enjoy getting to know what she can do for your Behavioral Health organization.

    What made you start your consulting firm?

    Why the name ‘Synergy’? What exactly does that mean?

    You “officially” launched earlier this year. How are things going?

    So who do you typically work with?

    How so? What types of services do you provide?

    Managed care, particularly around Compliance/Fraud, Waste, and Abuse, documentation, state-specific regulations, as well around some of the business-related issues that we weren’t taught about in grad school. For example, NPIs, CAQH, taxonomy codes, coming on board with managed care organizations, developing paperwork. 

    What would you say sets you and Synergy apart from many of the other coaches and consultants who are available to providers?

    What advice would you give to someone considering opening their own practice or expanding their services?

    How can people find out more about working with you?

    in Psychology

    Our newest guest was researched and found by our Mental Health News Radio co-host Melanie Vann. This is a subject near and dear to her heart so it was important to interview one of the leading experts on Sensory Processing Disorder. Autism, and ADHD.  Read the full BLOG article HERE.

    Maria Rickert Hong is an author, speaker, and practitioner working with parents and children all over the United States. Through her own experiences as a parent of a child with Sensory Processing Disorder, Maria discusses her journey aiding her family to wellness.

    With personal stories as well as examples of her work with parents and children, she answers our pointed questions, offers guidance, and hope.

    What is Sensory Processing Disorder? Why do you call it “Almost Autism”?

    How did you become a health coach that helps parents recover their kids from neurodevelopmental disorders such as Sensory Processing Disorder, almost autism, autism and ADHD?

    Tell us about your book “Almost Autism: Recovering Children from Sensory Processing Disorder, A Reference for Parents and Practitioners”.

    Why does my child with a neurodevelopmental disorder also have allergies, asthma, constipation or diarrhea, dark circles under his eyes, acid reflux, anxiety and/or red cheeks or ears after eating?

    Why don’t most parents and practitioners know that recovery is possible from these disorders?

    What about genetics – isn’t Autism Speaks looking for the genetic cause of autism?

    Aren’t there more kids with autism just because doctors are diagnosing it more?

    How do I go about recovering my child?
