The Film Nuts was tragically passed over at the Acadamy Awards, but the reasons I shall not discuss right here--still the movie illuminated so many aspects of the Mental Health field, mostly negative which is why competent well trained professionals are so important. The trailer and a small video collage follow here:

The performances in this movie are amazing by incredible actors. The psychological effects of people who are mentally ill are far-reaching. This movies deals with child abuse, power-hungry unethical professionals, mysogynistic and violent persons that are allowed to walk amongst us making life that much more difficult. We see the effects of women who sacrifice their children for the sake of financial security. Being difficult or using foul or lascivious language doesn't make a person mentally ill. The only way for society to truly understand mental health issues is to talk about them and support the use of our professional services so we relief and recovery can take place in all our lives. We all know someone dealing with mental health issues even if we choose to deny it. Join us for a strong look at mental health in society and let's discuss way to make this world better for all of us, because we all need someone to talk to, even therapists!
Seeking Help, especially mental health professional help is one way to show how much you love yourself as well as the people in your life. Sometimes it is not clear to us or we choose to deny we might be severely out of focus, but this is one why seeking help is so important. Sure you could inquire with your friends and family as to whether you might be out of balance, but often times they do not look at you with detached balanced eyes. Essentially they are not professionally trained and their feelings for you may get in the way of giving you a clear answer. Our loved ones are usually too invested in how they want us to be instead of what is best for us; usually they operate from what they believe is best for us and that may not always match what is truly best.
As psychologists or mental health professionals, our investment in clients should always be for what is best for a better quality of life, not necessarily what is convenient for our loved ones. The other thing to consider is that seeking therapeutic help does not make one "crazy" or "insane." In fact people who seek mental health assistance are often the most healthy thinking individuals, because they realize that at times they just need to release troubling thoughts and feelings. People that keep all that bottled up inside are like to become so pressured that they may end up harming themselves or someone they love, or complete strangers.
Listen, everyone needs to talk things out without judgement or compromise, including therapists. Someday the benefits of therapeutic release will be valued and we'll all have low cost to free access to a therapist at least 6-8 sessions a year. At least that is my hope for the future as a budding mental health professional
Mental health is a serious problem in both the USA and Canada? It is time we bring this to the forefront of everyones minds. We at the Essense of Success Radio Network are devoting the entire week on this issue.
You should never be ashamed of seeking the help that you or someone you know needs. How can we change things? Do we start with ourselves or our governments?
Do you know where to go for help for you or someone else? Is that help readily available?
We will also be talking about the difference between Canada and the US as far as mental health is concerned.

Carolyn Rodriguez, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Columbia University Department of Psychiatry; NIMH Research Fellow, Center for OCD and Related Disorders at Columbia Psychiatry
In this talk, Dr. Rodriguez will emphasize that although the causes of OCD are not fully understood, researchers have important clues for the brain basis of this disorder. Brain regions thought to be affected in OCD use chemical messengers to communicate and hold a key to understanding the brain basis of OCD. Finally, Dr. Rodriguez will describe how glutamate, the main chemical messenger involved in the communication between nerve cells in the brain, plays a role in OCD

Did you know that every time we have an emotional reaction, a chemical reaction is taking place in our brains that creates that emotion? Tune in to my conversation with Dr. Candace Pert to learn about the body/mind/spirit connection and how science and spirituality are two sides of the same coin. We'll be discussing ways that you can move from pain (emotional and physical) to pleasure through changing your neuroreceptor mapping (those chemical reactions in your brain).
Dr. Candace Pert is an internationally recognized pharmacologist who has published over 250 scientific articles. Dr. Pert appeared in the feature film What the Bleep Do We Know!?? and Bill Moyer’s TV program Healing and the Mind. She is the author of the book Molecules of Emotion: The Scientific Basis Behind Mind-Body Medicine (Scribner, 1997), Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d (Hay House, 2006), and the musical guided imagery CD Psychosomatic Wellness: Healing your Body-Mind.

The study of wisdom has continued to elude the efforts of researchers for years. Not only is the concept of wisdom complex and difficult to define, the process of teasing it out from other overlapping qualities has proved formidable. Recently, some fascinating and brand-new research about wisdom has appeared in the news. University of Michigan professor of psychology and researcher, Ethan Kross, in a recently published article co-authored with doctoral student Igor Grossman, has found some promising ways that people can actually teach themselves to be wiser. They have conducted several experiments that demonstrate that consciously adopting a particular perspective can change the way we respond to certain circumstances, and guide us to make wiser decisions and choose wiser actions. Our honored guest tonight is Dr. Ethan Kross. Columbia educated, an esteemed researcher and the Director of the University of Michigan's Emotion and Self-Control Laboratory, his work has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), among others. It has been published in leading scientific journals, and disseminated to the public at large through such media outlets as: the CBS Evening News, the New York Times, CNN, Time, Newsweek and Oprah Magazine. Join us tonight as executive coach and leadership development expert, Lisa Pasbjerg, explores with Dr. Kross what his research can teach us about "cultivating wisdom", and how we might implement this knowledge in our own lives.
