    "The Secret Enemy Within"- FIRE & ICE on KLJN 107.7 w/ Taralyn & Soul Kitten

    in Radio

    DESCRIPTION


    KLJN 107.7


    When most people hear the words, “mental illness’ oftentimes they associate it with negative connotations cultivated by societal views and personal stigmas. For example, the fear of being labeled “crazy” by their peers, family, and shunned in their communities is a major issue why many Americans shy away from discussing the topic of mental health/mental illness particularly minorities.


    Why is this topic so taboo to many of us? Mental health/mental illness continues to be a topic that many are unfamiliar with and lack proper understanding due to the stigma associated with fear of the unknown and being ostracized in society. 


                According to the World Health Organization, mental health is defined as “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community,” (Mental Wellness/Your Health/UNC).


                “Psychological health refers to an individual’s overall state of mental well-being, incorporating emotions, stress, mental illness, sense of belonging, connectedness and life satisfaction,”(Psychological Health: Safety, Health and Wellbeing).


    PRODUCED: TARALYN 


    HOST: Soul Kitten & Taralyn

    Jill Scott – The Light of the Sun on My Back

    Tell the Truth Tuesday: Best Regards

    in Entertainment

    Tonights show is about leaving things in 2015 that didnt suit you. Due to my health I was unable to do the show last night. I have been really low energy and in pain for a couple of weeks now. Of course its time to see a doctor, but not until everything I need to do is done. It got me to thinking that health REALLY is WEALTH. I can go conquer the world when I feel 100. When I feel less than 100 I cant do anything.

    Experiencing Bipolar from a Child's View: Eunice Brownlee's Story

    in Health

    Oftentimes we focus so much on the individual suffering with mental illness, we tend to overlook the impact it has on our families. Family deals with stigma, suffering, and pain as well and often feels helpless with their loved one and within the system. Their voices are JUST as important as the individual stories of triumph over mental illness.


    Today, Eunice Brownlee will join me and talk about what it is like to have a father who lives with bipolar disorder. She has not only become HIS advocate, but a powerful voice in the advocacy movement for mental health.


    Please join me as I talk to Eunice about how she defines her role as a child of someone with bipolar but has to play the role of an authority figure in his life to get what he needs in the system.


    Much thanks to Eunice and all she does in our movement.

    The Fascinating Journey of Regal Fro: Laqwanda's Story

    in Health

    Talking with Regal Fro, editor of The Emotional Detox Life about her incredible journey through psychosis and her resulting path to advocacy.


    I was mesmerized by Laqwanda's story-telling, how open she is about her experience, and her passion and drive to help others feel not so alone. It is so incredible to listen to someone fully disclose experiences with mental illness with compassion for themselves at the time with a touch of humor. There is no better way to race toward recovery than to be able to see yourself in your mental illness and find the ability to laugh! This was my kind of interview!


    Tune in to hear her fascinating story, and I hope she will come back on sometime and share more!


    You can find more about her and her advocacy on youtube.com at onementalvlogger
