JERRY COYNE'S ARTICLE ON ROBIN WILLIAMS (with Stephen Fry letter): http://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com/2014/08/12/robin-williams-depression-and-stephen-fry
In recent weeks, we've been dealing with the human mind and its ability to accept irrational things. This week, we're dealing directly with the complex issue of mental health, specifically things like depression, anxiety, grief, addiction, mood disorders and more.
Blogger, speaker and activist JT Eberhard has revealed publicly his own battles with depression, giving a talk at Skepticon 4 titled, "Mental Illness and Why The Skeptic Community Should Give a Shit." (LINK: http://youtu.be/UI-YvrHZVvk) Michaelyn Eberhard has a bachelors degree in neuroscience and is a freethought activist. Jeremiah Beene studies Ph.D Clinical Psychology at the University of Mississippi. And Dr. Darrel Ray is a clinical psychologist, author and expert on mental health.

It can feel like slippery territory. It's very difficult for a coach to know how to help a client who is suffering from mental illness. For that matter it can be difficult to even know for sure if a client is struggling with mental illness of what they are going through is "normal". They say there are very clear lines between coaching and therapy, and there is no place those lines are suppose to be more defined than around mental illness, and yet, when you're in it with a client, it can be anything but clear.
Everyone will be talking about Robin Williams today, so we don't need to. However, his passing has opened a window to talk about mental illness in the greater consciousness in a way we haven't had before. So, are going to discuss how to gracefully do that dance and those conversations with clients.
Call-In: (347) 850-8445
Tonight we will be discussing Robin Williams and the impact he had on all of us, along with discussing Mental Health issues and the stigma that surrounds it.
Here is the statement from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention about the loss of Robin Williams to depression:
"We are deeply saddened by the death of Robin Williams. When many media reports focus on the issue of suicide, it can often bring up painful memories for suicide loss survivors. Please remember to take care of yourself and your loved ones in the coming days. If you or someone you know is struggling please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline '1-800-273-TALK (8255)"
Robin Williams brought us so much joy and laughter, which makes his death an even deeper lesson for all, since mental illness crosses gender, race and socioeconomic levels. The funny man's suicide has placed the discussion about depression and mental illness in the national spotlight.
Join Michelle Hollinger for a discussion about how mental health impacts women and their ability to experience joy, love and peace.
This morning we have the pleasure of interviewing Eileen Casella-Rider, LMHC. Eileen has her masters degree in counseling psychology from Antioch University. She has unique experience in the field of mental health working in both private practice and as a program director, clinician, and EHR advisor for mental health organizations. She has also provided training, sales, support, and clinical documentation expertise in the behavioral health electronic health record industry.
Eileen gravitated to the technical and software side of psychology during her times spent as a clinician. This unique vantage point gives her the perspective behavioral and mental health providers and organizations need to determine which EHRs to take seriously.
It isn’t just about the software!
This candid discussion about the behavioral health EHR industry is refreshing, open, and a must listen for any organization looking for the facts when it comes to EHR purchase and adoption.
Let’s open Pandora’s Box shall we?
Questions for Eileen? More information?
With mental illness affecting roughly 1 in 17 Americans, this 8-week series targets the way our nation and its churches confront the conversation surrounding mental illness and is designed to clarify broad misperceptions and shed a new light on the topic - Biblically and psychologically. The National Institute of Mental Health reports that one in four adults, approximately 57.7 million Americans experience a mental health disorder in a given year.
The series includes professionals who discuss such topics as the six stages of grief, chemical imbalances, the effects of mental health disorders on a child's education, and suicide. Additional discussions include pastors, leadership and members within the church who suffer from mental illness. The workshop is hosted by Pastor Seneca who leads the discussion utilizing Biblical references of mental illness. Reference John 9.
The workshop series also includes featured guests, psychiatric doctors, therapists, couples, teachers and families that have encountered and live within mental illness circumstances.
Special guest Tanya J. Peterson, a nationally certified mental health counselor, columnist, and published author of two critically acclaimed novels will be here today to discuss her newly released book, My Life in a Nutshell. Kirkus Review has called this book "a vital tool for sufferers and their families."
Tanya has been on both sides of the proverbial couch; a counselor and a client. Her mission is to increase awareness, understanding and empathy about mental illness. The writing arena is the platform she uses to accomplish that. Her novels are fictional, all mental health themed, featuring characters who are living with mental illness.
Tanya's unique and heartfelt perspective on mental illness is enlightening and entertaining. Save the date, and be sure to tune in to listen.
Are you having issues dealing with the world around you today? Have you sought professional support and walked away not helped or satisfied with the process? Are drugs the only answer for your mental health issues? Is life just throwing curve balls at you and dealing with life is getting harder each day?
My guest is Dr. Amelia Kemp, psychotherapist and author of From Psychotherapy to Sacretherapy: Alternative Holistic Descriptions and Healing Process for 170 Mental and Emotional Diagnoses Worldwide. The process of getting help for our mental and emotional being is often over looked in the healthcare arena and the stigma of needing help is a barrier to seeking treatment or support. No longer are we denying the connection between all areas of our body, mind and spirit as our wellbeing. We are not pieces to be fixed but rather a unit of life that needs to be nurtured and listened to as symptoms arise. Help is available, exercises are included and solutions outlined in this book by Dr. Kemp.
