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.

Myths, misunderstandings and stereotypes are common when discussing persons who have been diagnosed with a mental illness. The "stigma of mental illness" can lead to the adoption of discriminatory and abusive practices. Over the last decade, much has been written about "stigma", but not it's impact on children.
Tonight, Mike leads us in discussion on the impact "stigma" has on Daughters/Sons. We'll be reviewing a few themes: the messages young children receive; the messages that D&S tell themselves as they form identities separating them from their parents; the messages we receive from service providers and others involved in mental health advocacy. We will also share how discriminatory practices can impact the lives of children.
We will finish by addressing positive experiences and messages, which can lead to resiliency and improved self-esteem.
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.

A man or woman's private life should be able to remain private, but when one seeks public office, all things are scrutinized. In this election season, candidates are being evaluated on all things that indicate ethics, trustworthiness, dependability and integrity. In the past, a failed marriage made one practically unelectable to public office. Couples in conflict put on a good public front in order not to damage the campaign. Does divorce still carry the social stigma it use to in the past? Can a person win a public office after a messy public divorce?
Many people think that recovery from drug and alcohol addiction is a lost cause when in reality there are approximately 25-40 million people who consider themselves to be in active, stable long-term recovery. Based on those numbers, most people probably interact with someone in recovery on a daily basis, but they don't even know it because it's not talked about openly. Dr. Kelly and the Recovery Research Institute's mission is change that stigma and show people, through science, that recovery is not only possible, but it is the likely outcome.
On this episode we will talk to Dr. Kelly about addiction, stigma and recovery and how understanding the neuroscience of addiction will help alleviate that stigma.
