Four years ago I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. In that one moment my entire life changed as I knew it. For years I had been diagnosed as having Major Depressive Disorder. I never once dreamt that I would end up with a bipolar disorder diagnosis. I swore up and down that I did not have bipolar disorder. It wasn't until I educated myself and learned as much as I could about this illness. With that information, I knew I was armed to fight it! I now have come to a place where not only do I accept my illness, but I'm reaching out to other parents who have bipolar disorder as well.

As a part of her Dance with Bipolar, blog talk-radio series, Dr. Cathy Reimers (Doc) and Bipolar peer specialist, Meg Dog discuss the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) on bipolar disorder. Studies have indicated that many people who have been diagnosed with bipolar also meet the criteria for PTSD. How are they related? If you struggle with both bipolar and PTSD could your depression get worse? Doc and Meg Dog answer these questions and any other questions that our “live callers” may have. Doc says: “Trauma is never pretty.” Meg Dog responds: “Ya, it’s pretty ugly.”

Discuss the need for timely, appropriate treatment for serious mental illness (SMI) through AOT programs. Your input is invited at (347)857-3293. Most families experiencing mental health crisis agree that their mentally disabled loved ones would be able to avoid psychotic episodes if the patients were faithful to their mental health treatment program and took their meds. However, many Americans with SMI are untreated, some because they have no health insurance that covers mental disfunctions, and others because patients refuse to accept treatment and take prescribed meds.
Assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs mandate continued psychiatric treatment and provide subsistence assistance (food and housing) for Americans with SMI. AOT programs reduce homelessness, arrests and incarceration, hospitalization, and deaths caused by the lack of treatment. That means less crime and safer communities, lower prison costs, and restoration to wholesome living for many sick people.
We congratulate the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), which endorsed unanimously the “authorization, implementation, appropriate funding, and consistent use of assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) laws to ensure treatment in the least restrictive setting possible for individuals whose illness prevents them from otherwise accessing such care voluntarily.” The IACP represents more than 20,000 members in more than 100 countries (see more at the Treatment Advocacy Center website). Nobody knows the needs of people with SMI like their psychiatrists, their families and police. With few exceptions, they agree that AOT would make ours a safer and more humane society. Please call and give your opinions on air.

Oh, yes, I HEAR you! "What? Where has she BEEN?!" Hah! We all missed her, didn't we? We'll get those Where's Waldo answers tomorrow - when Joyce Cooling visits us at three p.m. Eastern time! Remember that - for Tuesday, 11/18 - the show STARTS at TWO. We'll have three two-hour shows this week!
Back to our sublime guest: Joyce has been making beautiful music with her guitar for QUITE a while now. Self-taught, her influences and inspirations range from Brazilian to Classical to Rock - and it all pours forth into a pulsating, dynamic and driving deliciousness that is profoundly JAZZ!
#1 radio singles, six Top Ten, multiple music awards - and nominated for several others. "Global Cooling" was her seventh studio album and that was released in 2009.
Well, it HAS been quite an absence on the scene...and the reason for this visit from Joyce (a reunion!) is specific: she has a new HOLIDAY single! Produced by longtime producer, Jay Wagner, "The Holiday's On" is meant to convey a 1940's Swing era vibe with a spin that's infectious :) We'll hear it - and more tracks that are meaningful - and we'll talk to Joyce about a favorite subject: mental health. This fascinating artist has worked with some of the best in the business (Stan Getz, Charlie Byrd, Al Jarreau!) and has made friends all over the world. But the urgency of her life's path has much to do with the focus on keeping us emotionally afloat. That's why Joyce is a national advocate for NAMI: the National Alliance for Mental Health. As we near Thanksgiving and get into gear for the season, nothing is more important that focusing attention on how we're coping. How we can help ourselves and help others live better lives. Please join us for a SPECIAL "Hybrid Jazz!" 11/18/2014.
