Dr. Gary Blau, Chief of the Child, Adolescent and Family Branch of the Center for Mental Health Services, joined Dr. Greene this month to discuss his work in the field of mental health. Among other issues, Dr. Blau discusses the alarmingly high rate of children in need of mental health services and the much lower rate of care available. He recommends not only expanding the number of health care providers, but also expanding the thinking of who could be helpful in treating these issues. Along these lines, he introduces the idea of mental health first-aid as a critical first step in providing appropriate services to children with mental health needs. In addition, Dr. Blau discusses the importance of a strength-based treatment model and the feasibility of family-driven, youth-guided service provision.
We've become numb to the mass shootings, stabbings, and erratic behavior displayed by the influx of recent news stories. It's easy to write off the actions of others as just 'bad behavior' but what happens if we dig deeper, if we start to talk about mental health issues? Depression, bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia etc. are more common than many may realize but why are we still so afraid to talk about these issues, too afraid to seek help? Why are so many told to just 'pray it off'? Join us as we discuss the eye-opening statistics, the reality of the state of mental health in America, and ways to help those suffering and in need of mental health support. Let's discuss...
We will talk the issues that surround not just mental health issues within the congregation but with the Pastor. We'll deal with the strain that comes with Pastoring and some events that come from it if not dealt with properly.

Life's Issues with Lloyd Rosen with his guest Kartika R Anderson
Blue is Blue is my opportunity to share my walk through depression and how art (specifically creating with soft pastels and acrylics) has helped tremendously.
Kartika R Anderson has a few goals:
to continue my healing
to reduce the stigma associated with depression, medication and suicidal ideations
to challenge women to own their healing
to encourage more people to create art
to gain more recognition for art’s therapeutic value in general
Thanks for joining on the journey!
I will go further into detail of why I am talking about this, why there needs to be more mental health awareness, and the stigma surrounding it that needs to be extinguished. There may be a poem or two to recite. Well See. But, anyway, check it out Saturday at 6pm! This is important to me so I could talk for hours about it but any callers are welcome.
We know now that our valued service men and women who have been returning home, are finding that it is very difficult to find a job and fit back into the civilian world. If you take into account veterans who have served in active duty since 2001, the unemployment for young veterans is sitting at 12.1%. The unemployment rate for all veterans (including young and old ) is at an all time high of 21.1%.
Because of this fact and a number of others, many of our vets returning home are finding themselves unemployed and often even homeless. On a national level, an estimated 107,000 veterans are finding themselves without a home each night.
So how about them finding jobs? They are returning to a slow economy which having trouble getting back on it’s feet. They are finding their houses often in danger of default or foreclosure and their spouses are having trouble finding employment too.
Join Flex Hour Jobs as we discuss the mental health issues our vets face and how we can help them to find jobs.
