  • Depression and Suicide In The Aesthetic Industry

    in Health

    Vanity Fair magazine featured an article on the untimely death by suicide of a beloved aesthetic industry icon, Dr. Fredric Brandt. While many have speculated about what caused such a renowned, successful and loved physician to take his own life, the truth will most likely never be known.  One thing we do know is depression among medical professionals is higher than in most other industries, and according to Psychology Today magazine some physicians are even making career changes. Doctors enter the medical profession to treat unhealthy patients, however, whether it’s the long hours, the lack of gratitude, the low pay, or other life traumas including divorce, family stressors or non-existent personal life, many medical professionals are becoming unhealthy themselves. As Dr. Brandt is not the first aesthetic surgeon to commit suicide in recent years, the Aesthetic Insider Show brings you this exclusive interview with Carla Lundblade, MS LPC NCC, a Beverly Hills Licensed Clinical Therapist, in the hopes of shining a spotlight on this very serious issue. Known as the "911 Celebrity Therapist," Carla provides a full spectrum of focused psychology and counseling services. You can learn more at www.carlalundblade.com.

    Suicide: What We Don't Say!

    in Psychology

    Suicide is a serious public health problem that takes an enormous toll on families, friends, classmates, co-workers, and communities, as well as on our military personnel and veterans.


    Uncovering the reason for an individual suicide death is complex and challenging. What we know from research is that 90% of people who die by suicide have a potentially treatable mental disorder at the time of their death—a disorder that often has gone unrecognized and untreated. 


    Join us for a very frank conversation about Suicide.  Host Celeste S. Duckworth, with featured guests, LeAnn Hull, Founder/CEO of Andy Hull's Foundation, Brett A. Scudder, President/Chairman at The Suicide Prevention Institute, Roy Hobbs, News Anchor at WRDE News, Tisa Key, Actor/Writer/Filmmaker, and Jacqui Letran, CEO of Teen Confidence Academy, will share their experiences, what they have learned, breaking myths, and how they are advocating to prevent this tragic event.

    Suicide takes the lives of nearly 40,000 Americans every year. Many who attempt suicide never seek professional care. There are twice as many deaths due to suicide than HIV/AIDS. Between 1952 and 1995, suicide in young adults nearly tripled. Over half of all suicides occur in adult men, ages 25-65.


    For young people 15-24 years old, suicide is the second leading cause of death. Suicide rates among the elderly are highest for those who are divorced or widowed. 80% of people that seek treatment for depression are treated successfully.15% of those who are clinically depressed die by suicide. There are an estimated 8 to 25 attempted suicides to 1 completion. The highest suicide rate is among men over 85 years old: 65 per 100,000 persons.

    Military Monday with John D. Gresham and USNI Press Author Charles Neimeyer

    in History

    The War of 1812, was one of America's "small and forgotten" conflicts, much like the Korea in the 20th century. Ill advised, and really unnecessary for both Great Britain and the young United States of America (which was less than 50 years old at the time), the War of 1912 was a conflict that gained neither side much benefit, and diverted badly needed resources from other endeavors. Nevertheless, there were a number of intriguing and important lessons to be learned from the conflict, none more interesting than those derived from the British Chesapeake Campaign of 1814. A British squadron under command of Adm. Cochrane, raised habit for most of 1814 from the Virginia Tidewater to the waters around Baltimore, doing a surprising amount of damage and raising havoc against the seemingly hapless Americans. The British squadron took and burned Hampton, VA, portions of Washington, DC, and other towns along the bay, eventually only being stopped by the heroic defense of Baltimore and bombardment of Fort McHenry. It is a fascinating story, little known by most Americans, which almost went unnoticed during the recent bicentennial of the War of 1812.


    To learn more about the War of 1812 and the 1814 Chesapeake Campaign, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EDT. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author LCOL. Charles Neimeyer. , USMC (Ret.) to discuss his new book, War in the Chesapeake. His book is a new single-volume history of the campaign, and will prove enlightening for both academics and those new to the story.
