Today's show will be an open discussion of current events. Please tune in as we look at what is happening in our world from a thoughtful, yet realistic approach. There have been numerous police caused killings of African Americans, a continuous amount of domestic killings; murder for hire and murder suicides, killings of the elderly, and now a thought to be serial killer of the homeless in Atlanta, GA. What is going on???
Author and mental health counselor Nina Bingham discusses Suicide Prevention. 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?

Speak Life Radio ~ The Importance of Mental Health CheckUps
Everyone is familiar with the concept of a periodic medical checkup --- some sort of scheduled doctor's visit to check your blood pressure, weight and other physical benchmarks.
The notion of a regular mental health checkup is less established, perhaps because of the historical stigma about mental illness. But taking periodic stock of your emotional well-being can help identify warning signs of common ailments like depression or anxiety. Such illnesses are highly treatable, especially when they are identified in their early stages, before they get so severe that they precipitate some sort of personal -- and perhaps financial --- crisis.
"Absolutely, people should have a mental health checkup" our guest tonight is Tish Granville a licensed professional clinical counselor employed with Emerge Counseling Services in Akron Ohio. She serves many children, adolescents, adult woman, and couples in an outpatient setting; treating various mental health and relationship issues.
She also is Co/Founder of Center of Holistic and Intergrative Health LLC; a mind - body - spirit wellness organization that focusses on educating individuals in the community on holistic wellness.
Tish is a newly wed who enjoys reading, nature, art, spending time with loved ones and writing. Please join us!!!!!

Mental illness, specifically chronic depression hits the black community more often than any other group, but black Americans are much less likely to seek out professional help. Why does this continue to be taboo?
The American Psychiatric Association further states Culturally diverse groups often bare a disproportionately high burden of disability resulting from mental disorders. This disparity does not stem from a greater prevalence rate or severity of illness in African Americans, but from a lack of culturally competent care, and receiving less or poor quality care.
For some disorders, such as schizophrenia and mood disorders, there is a high probability of misdiagnosis because of differences in how African-Americans express symptoms of emotional distress.
All in all, we have a serious problem with mental illness in the black community and our hope through this conversation is to begin a much needed dialogue in hopes of debunking mental illness myths.
