    Promoting Economic Empowerment & Recovery through Peer Support

    in Health

    Oscar Jimenez-Solomon, MPH, Research Scientist & Research Coordinator, NYS Center of Excellence for Cultural Competence, NYS Psychiatric Institute

    Peggy Swarbrick, PhD, FAOTA, Wellness Institute Director, Collaborative Support Programs of NJ, Associate Professor, Rutgers University

    Poverty and dependency are barriers to the recovery and rehabilitation of people seeking mental health recovery. Clinicians, peer providers, consumers, families, and community services must work together to help individuals achieve financial stability and wellness.

    This talk presents lessons of the Collaborative Support Programs of NJ (CSP-NJ) in providing financial services for people in mental health recovery and examples of asset-building services available in many communities. It also describes key components of a peer-facilitated economic empowerment intervention being developed by the NYSPI Center of Excellence for Cultural Competence in partnership with the Wellness Institute at CSP-NJ, the Mental Health Peer Connection (Buffalo, NY), Baltic Street (Brooklyn, NY) and other organizations providing peer and asset-building services, such as the New York Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services (NYAPRS), the United Way of Buffalo and Western NY, and the National Disability Institute.

    For more information about the Peer Supported Economic Empowerment (PSEE) project, please contact Oscar Jimenez-Solomon at: jsolomo@nyspi.columbia.edu.

    .Changes to Peer Support Line on Recovery Now with Kim Justus..And Suicide Hurts

    in Self Help

    Two part show tonight! The Science Of Happiness, host Lori Faitel will be joining me to tell us details about the changes to our Peer Support Line. I encourage the audience and our hosts to listen. Lori will be in the road, so we'll keep her as long as we can and also hear more about her show and the new earlier platform. Open mics, new Indy's and breaking out the first few holiday tunes. I talked to Alice Cooper. :)

    Suicide Hurts was added to the back half of this show. You matter. Get help. People do care.

    This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and guests share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.

    More will be revealed! This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we discover the new "me."

    We focus on the four A's of Recovery...Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers.  :)

    Some nights we will have a featured guest, others we will introduce a topic of recovery, encouraging callers to join us in the discussion. The second part of the show is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire.

    Host is Kim Justus, author of In a Flash: Miracles Here and Beyond found at www.inaflash.org

    The Impact of Negative Emotions on your Health w/ Host Michael Idell

    in Education

    How We Feel Has an Impact on How We Heal, Grow, Recouperate, and Live

    Easier said than done right? We all have struggles in life. This is part of life but we decide what affects us, what has an impact, and the things that bother us and don't.

    A positive attitude keeps us moving forward. Peer support, family, friends and counseling services help build those things to keep a positive outloook working together. It is medical fact that what used to be thought as mentally debilitating and irreversable with brain injuries are treatable and can be overcome by keeping a hopeful perspective and positive approach in the right environment. This is what we do! 

    Join  us on this conference about enhancing your life regardless to the position, if any, in the brain injury community.

    Please call in (424) 243-9540 or use this link to listen in.

    The Empowerment Zone with Les Paul Morgan

    in Education

    I’m a certified peer support specialist for people with disabilties and a multiple brain injury and aneurysm survivor as well as a survivor of several related operations and procedures. Together, I hope we can bridge the gap to inclusion for everyone with all types of disabilities and that you will be willing to call in and share your stories and ideas on The Empowerment Zone with Les Paul!

    I work for a Center for Independent Living which are community-based, cross-disability, non-profit organizations that is designed and operated by people with disabilities. CILs are unique in that they operate according to a strict philosophy of consumer control, wherein people with all types of disabilities directly govern and staff the organization. Centers for Independent Living Provide:

    Peer Support
    Information and Referral
    Individual and Systems Advocacy
    Independent Living Skills Training

    The Empowerment Zone is a place for all people with any type of disability to come and learn and find common ground and solutions to help empower people with disabilities to find their inner strengths.

    This is a positive show based on the IL philosophy which is independent living for all people wishing to better their lives by learning to take charge of their destiny and living their dreams through the independent living movement. Two years ago I came up with the concept for the Empowerment Zone after also hosting on the brain injury radio network show Dream Catchers for over three years now as well.

    Not only is the independent living movement very cool, but it’s a way of thinking differently with a disability with bold ideas and a brave new future using the core services of Iindependent Living. If you would like to call in and talk dial 424-243-9540 and press one if you’d like to speak because that shows me your hand is up!

    Diabetes Peer Support Through Social Media

    in Health

    Receiving a diagnosis of diabetes can be scary and leave you feeling alone.  This was the case for today's guest Cherise Shockley, CEO and founder of Diabetes Community Advocacy Foundation.
    Cherise was diagnosed at the age of 23 with LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of Adults) as a newlywed while her husband was stationed in Iraq.  Knowing no one with diabetes she took to the internet for answers, however there was not much information to be found about LADA,  A few years after diagnosis she became insulin dependent and came across tudiabetes.org and realized she wasn't alone and began blogging.
    Cherise soon created DSMA with a weekly twitter chat to bring the diabetes online community together to talk openly about all things diabetes.
    Join me in conversation with Cherise as we learn more about the Diabetes Online Community, LADA and initiatives such as Blue Friday's.
