    Voices InJustice talking STIGMA - Do others attach a stigma when they see you

    in Current Events

    Voices InJustice with Trish every Sunday evening at 9pm central time. We are a radio network production of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery. A community outreach focus in awareness, prevention, and empowerment to overcome our many challenges; learning together how to change the centuries of human trauma and teach our children a better way for their future.


    Tonight we are discussing STIGMA - Share your voice by calling Trish @ (929) 477-3163 or join the online chatroom as we address the many societal stigma attached to persons without ever knowing who they really are. We see obesity, bikers, the color of skin, a nationality, or even the economically poor neighbor down the street and we all pass judgement as if we know their life, but do we or are we repeating what our parents taught us? What are we as parents today teaching our children in an America, or other country, where we have such an entire mixed community attending school with our children?


    This is a very hot topic with all that happens in our world. We have economic breakdown and battles rising around the world. Our kids watch the news and hear about two or three gang related shootings everyday. They attend shcools where the bullying by judgement causes children as young as 9 years old to take their own lives. Will we ever be able to live in a peaceful accepting society? Give your teen, your child, the individual ability to learn who people are before they see a color, a tatoo, an eating disorder, or a poor neglected child suffering to get through everyday and instantly attach the centuries of judgement.

    Mental Illness and the Stigma of it All

    in Family

     


                When it comes to medical assistance, public attention and resources, mental illness has been put on the back shelf around the globe for centuries now.  How mental illness has been perceived and dis [AB1] shuffled, and what has kept it from getting its past due recognition, is stemmed from a long list of factors.  Some such as ignorance, isolation, discrimination, and prejudice; has have negatively impacted the labeling theory, which is attributed and linked to stigma associated with mental disorders; and such stigma can be eliminated, if we can all recognize that the mentally ill can be productive members of society. Social stigma has been, and still is, the utmost contributor to the distant silence that has inhumanely sustained mental illness in asylums, and along with family secrets, such as “differences" never to be shared with neighboring people or friends of employment, in fear of judgment or loss of job.   There isn't anyone who isn't affected by mental illness.  It affects someone's family member, to in all different ethnic groups, from the young to the old, to your community, schools or place of employment, or even maybe yourself. Mental illness is a costly, debilitating disease, and it comes in many different forms.  Unfortunately, it gets more recognition through stigma than public awareness and education; therefore, we must make an effort, and all learn what it means to live with mental illness and how society can work together to break down the barriers from stigma associated with it. Please join me this Friday night Feb 28th at 7pm CT as I discuss this delicate topic that so many are affected by. Call in live at 646-929-0421 or tune in at www.blogtalkradio.com/ritahodges See you there! Ciao...

    Mental Health Stigma In The Military

    in Military

    Our bravest, our strongest, those who defend our country and give us the freedoms that we sometimes take for granted, are the same people who find themselves surrounded by stigma when they seek help for the mental health issues caused in the line of duty.  The fact that stigma exists for active military and veterans when they seek help is no secret. That’s why changes are being made.   On today’s episode of Changing Direction, Michele welcomes Kim Dennis, MD, CEDS, Medical Director and CEO, of Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center. Kim will discuss the greatest areas of stigma in the military, eating disorders and sexual trauma, as well as combat PTSD. Dr. Dennis will also address what is being done to reduce the negative perceptions that exist and create a more welcoming environment for our military and veterans so they can seek help, comfortably.   Michele’s shows combine scientific research, cutting-edge guests and personal stories that highlight the challenges and successes of deliberately deciding to change the direction of your life.
