    Ep. 4: The Impact of Mental Health Stigma and Discrimination on Daughters/Sons

    in Family

    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.

    Divine Inspiration with your Hosted Alicia Monet

    in Spirituality

    REBIRTH:Extra Sensory Perception What a Extrasensory perception {ESP}? A lot of times ESP is viewed as having a special ability or a sixth sense. The truth of the matter is that we are ALL Capable of tuning in, becoming more aware and sensitive of our ESP. The Western World, specifically, religious programming shuns ESP.

If you ever heard as a child or adult, " you ain't got no imaginary friend," "You are crazy with all that you heard voices crap," "I rebuke you in the name of Jesus," "you got a demon in you child." And the list goes on and on. Tonight we will explore the vast world of ESP and speak with Psychic Medium Goddess Isis and Oracle Namaste Moore about when they realized their ESP, the fear and stigma about it, and how they are Now empowered by it and empower others.

  • Does Divorce Still Carry A Social Stigma For Those Running For Public Office?

    in Women

    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?

    in Sports

    Game day is finally here.


    After a 7-5 season, the Boston College Eagles are in a Tier I ACC bowl game against a big time opponent. After a controversial 6-6 season, Penn State is in a bowl game but trying to shake the stigma attached to the program imposed by overbearing and possibly illegal NCAA sanctions. The two programs are both rebuilding, and they'll collide at 4 PM at The House That Steinbrenner Built.


    New York is the city that never sleeps, and we haven't slept a wink while getting ready for the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. Boston College and Penn State will fight for bragging rights at a stadium located right in the middle of the two campuses in one of the greatest cities in the world. Both schools have links to New York, and now it's time to get ready for game day.


    We'll do final breakdowns on the field, and we'll talk with guests and your calls about final expectations on the game. We'll give the comprehensive guide to New York City (if something like that exists), and we'll get ready, finally, for some football.


    Boston College-Penn State. The New Era Pinstripe Bowl. Can you believe it's here?

    in Self Help

    LIVE ON NFTS - : IronE Singleton - Blindsided by the Walking Dead ... an inspirational biography about hope, triumph against the odds and inspired divine guidance along the way...


    IronE Singleton is best known to audiences as the menacing kingpin Alton in the Academy® Oscar Award-nominated film THE BLIND SIDE; the biggest box office grossing sports movie of all time. He is also known as the compassionate tough guy, T-Dog, in the Emmy, AFI & WGA Award winning, Golden Globe nominated tv show THE WALKING DEAD; one of basic cable's highest rated shows for viewership. IronE's unusual name depicts his life story, his ability to play strong, multidimensional characters and has made him a memorable actor in both film and television.On the streets of Atlanta, the fight to survive is a daily battle.  From the drug-infested corners of one of the city's worst housing projects, to alleyways filled with ravenous zombies-- Blindsided by the Walking Dead examines one man's battle to overcome the violence, drugs, and crime of the 'hood; starting with a young IronE Singleton determined to succeed despite an abusive mother, an absent father, and the temptations of instant gratification inherent with the thug life. Football and Faith in God become IronE's allies in his quest to escape and helped him reach for the lights of the University of Georgia's football field and theater stages. After years of struggle--failed businesses, small roles, and an ill-fated trip to Los Angeles--IronE snags his major breakthrough role, playing the kind of drug-dealing, gun-toting thug he would have become on the streets, in The Blind Side.

    Taking The Fight To A Common Enemy: Depression

    in Christianity

    Its that time of year where we get caught up in all the gatherings, Christmas parties, meeting with family and friends and yes plenty of shopping. We find ourselves moving at a fast pace, with the great temptation to keep up with the Jones. And some how all of these things that were suppose to bring great joy, end up delivering great misery, sadness and depression. US World News reports researched and found that the suicide rate is the highest its been in 25 yrs. And really we just still have a difficult time finding ways to cope with this common enemy. Were afraid to speak to our friends, minister and find ourselve in a pit of despair. For those who have battled depression, they understand how dibilitating it is. The shame and stigma of not having it all together. Lossed loved ones, unexpected divorce, traumatic childhood. How can we fight this enemy and defeat it? Whats a proper response to it? And how can we encourage others rather than casting blame?

    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!!!!!
