Linda Naomi Katz was raised as a modern orthodox Jew, where mental illness became a factor throughout her life. It had started with her mother when she was in the fifth grade. Her mother had suffered a nervous breakdown and was diagnosed with acute depression. This gave Linda and her family a huge amount of stress. As she was growing up into adulthood, her mother's illness affected her in ways that she too would become a depressed person. Linda had difficulties making friends, developing positive relationships, and maintaining employment. After she graduated college, she also suffered from a mental illness and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Through the years she was faced with challenges that were difficult to overcome, but worked hard to achieve recovery. As part of her recovery from mental illness, she became active and volunteered for a variety of mental health organizations. Linda became a member of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness or formerly called National Alliance for the Mentally Ill) and published articles about her life in New York City Voices, a newspaper for people with mental illness to share their personal recovery stories. Both of these agencies helped fight against stigma and other issues pertaining to mental illness. Soon after, Linda found employment working for agencies that help others with mental illness reach their goals and dreams. Today, Linda is happily married, an author who has published a book titled Surviving Mental Illness, My Story which won a Silver Medal Award by Readers Favorite for best non-fiction/autobiography and came in First Place and won the Life Journeys Award for best memoir/biography from Readers Views. Through this book she describes all of her challenges that she dealt with while having a mental illness and how she found her way back towards establishing a wellness by staying mentally and physically strong.

Psychotropic drugs have been well-documented to produce an array of unpleasant, sometimes health-threatening side effects. In fact, drugs administered to combat conditions such as bi-polar disorder, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, ADHD, and other conditions, have been linked to suicide, violence, and substance abuse.
Teresa's guest, Dr. Mark Millar (DC) shares the story of how he learned about the potential of a common mineral, lithium orotate, and its' ability to more safely and less expensively treat mental conditions.
Millar's discoveries about the high toxicity and potentially devastating side effects of commonly prescribed psychotropic drugs caused him to search for healthier alternatives.

As the summer draws to a close, the anticipation of a new school year gains momentum as children, parents, teachers, and communities prepare for the official first day.
Much like the preparation that one undergoes in buying new school supplies, materials, and clothing, we must also ensure that we (as parents, caregivers, and educators) work to prepare children for the new school year by openly talking about the possible challenges that one may face.
One of the biggest problems and stigmas that individuals with cleft and/or craniofacial anomalies deal with is name-calling, bullying and flat-out abuse from other people. While each of these issues is worth talking about individually, collectively they can cause the receiver of these taunts to suffer mental abuse. This week's "CleftCast" begins a long series of podcasts focusing on what could be called "taboo" subjects ... the ones that no one wants to talk about openly. Host Joe Rutland offers insights and observations around mental abuse, how he has seen it affect himself and others, and what potential solutions are available. NOTE: It should be understood very clearly that Rutland is not a mental health professional, counselor or physician in the field of mental abuse. If you or anyone listening to this podcast needs help and support, then Rutland encourages you to seek help immediately in your area. #mentalhealth #cleftlip #cleftpalate #craniofacial #mentalabuse #abuse
