SORT BY Relevancy
There are many stigmas about mental illness in every culture around the world. However, on December 14, 2012 the concept of mental illness was changed for many. The merciless shootings and deaths at the Sandy Hook School in Newton, Connecticut awakened us to the fact that many of the shooting massacres at school campuses were done by persons suspected of being mentally-ill. In addition, the media reported that the shooter had Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of Autism, and that he was “mentally-ill”. Dr. Applewhite and guests will share startling facts about mental illness and school violence from her upcoming book. She will discuss ways to help us understand the difference between a person diagnosed with mental illness and a person who is deemed EVIL.
Linda Naomi Katz is the author of Surviving Mental Illness. She was born on March 21, 1969 by the name of Linda Naomi Baron. She was raised as a modern Orthodox Jew, and mental illness has been a factor throughout most of her life.
Through the years she was faced with challenges that were difficult to overcome, but has been working hard to achieve recovery. As part of her recovery from mental illness, she became active in the mental health field.
Linda is a member with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (formerly National Alliance for the Mentally Ill), and has published articles in New York City Voices, a newspaper that helps fight against stigma and other issues pertaining to mental illness. Soon after, she found employment working for agencies that help others with mental illness reach their goals and dreams.
Today, Linda is happily married, a college graduate, and continues her work as a mental health advocate. Linda lives in Flushing, New York. Surviving Mental Illness is her first book.
Please join us as we discuss Mental Illness. "What's on My Mind." With, Ms. Ashley Smith.
Ashley Smith was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in 2007 after stealing a military truck and leading the police on a high speed chase -- a joy ride that landed her in jail.
"I heard voices. I saw images of people following me that scared me. I thought my life was in danger,"
After receiving treatment for her illness and learning to cope through medication and a strong support system, Smith decided to draw awareness to stereotypes by beginning her own nonprofit, "Embracing My Mind."
Ashley Smith's book "What's on my Mind is available on Amazon, please see a review below:
"Ashley Smith wrote her book according to the format of the NAMI In Our Own Voice presentation where people share their own experiences with their mental health problems. Ashley's experience is very unique and she is able to clearly describe what happened to her, what she experienced (in terms of her symptoms), how her family supported her, and how she was able to get treatment and move on with her life. This is a wonderful guide for people with loved ones suffering from mental illness and those who have a diagnosis. Ashely is an incredible woman whose story will inspire and encourage others to seek help and overcome their own mental health issues.

Let's take remove the shame and embarrasement that's attached to Mental Health Illness.
The world was shocked when we found out the famous actor and comedian Robin Williams took his life. Some of us were stunned and just couldn't understand how this wonderful man contributed to our lives in entertainment media. When we learned he suffered from depression, we thought, 'Wow.'
There are many people who are God-fearing, God-loving believers who suffer from mental illness every day. Throughout their lives, they walk a tight rope between faith in God and the illness of their mind.
In recent years, mental illness is being seen in more favorable light, as in, people are starting to talk about it more, which is a very good thing. However, it is still enough of a taboo subject that some Christians tend to view mental illness in such as a lack of faith or some kind of demonic influence.
However, I personally believe that mental illness does not make a person less of a Christian but it does affect their faith and belief in God at times. Some people suffer from debilitating disorders like bi-polar, manic depression, or others. Some suffer as a result from some kind of trauma.
So with Christians, what role does faith play in mental illness? What roles does medicine and therapy play? Should we solely depend on God for healing or should we seek help? How should Christian deal with this issue?

Do you have a mental health toolbox? A mental health toolbox is made of things you use or do to help yourself feel better. Your toolbox might consist of positive affirmation, or it might be simply taking a walk or a short nap. Did you know that certain essential oils can raise seratonin levels and help you feel better? Tonight I'll give you some ideas for creating your own toolbox and share some tips that have worked for me in the past.
SISFI is hosting a Suicide Awareness/Prevention NY Tour on Sept. 17th - Oct 3rd across NYC, Long Island and Westchester to bring more awareness, services, programs and resources to address the increasing numbers of people facing serious life and emotional challenges, and human suffering with suicide ideations/thoughts, and supporting families who lost loved ones to suicide.
The theme of the tour is “Look into my heart and mind, tell me what you see”. It highlights the realities of not knowing what’s in a person’s mind or on their heart by what we see on the outside, and that we must engage in dialog and allow an open and comfortable atmosphere for people to open up and express themselves. The workshops and radio shows of the tour are scheduled at different times every day across the 3 cities.
We have aligned 15 community workshops, 3 luncheons and 15 radio shows to bring people, mental health professionals, energy therapists, health professionals, survivors and healers together to address this very serious and important topic affecting many people in our communities. While the community workshops are local in the 3 cities, the radio shows will have guests from across the country who lost loved ones, and practitioners who specializes in the support, treatment, recovery and healing of mental health, life coaching, emotional wellness and human suffering.
For full schedule of the tour check the website http://sisfi.org/suicidetours.html.
