    A New Strategy for Suicide Prevention

    in Health

    Drs. Barbara Stanley and J. John Mann will be speaking


    Every year, there are more than 30,000 suicides and ten times as many suicide attempts in the United States.  Better prevention is urgently required. That requires improving our knowledge of the causes of suicidal behavior.  We know psychiatric disorders, most commonly major depression, are associated with suicide. But most people with a psychiatric disorder never attempt suicide. The group at higher risk of suicide have a predisposition to suicidal behavior. Learning about how genes and childhood experiences affect how we deal with stress, depression and make decisions, and how those functions are in turn related to brain functioning are key to understanding why people die by suicide.  The Conte Center for Translational Neuroscience at Columbia University and the New York State Psychiatric Institute, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, has been at the forefront of this research. 


    Differences in brain circuitry in suicide attempters are linked to the predisposition to suicidal behavior and are the result of a combination of genes and childhood adversity. Evaluating brain circuitry of family members of those who have suicided or made serious nonlethal suicide attempts may identify a higher risk group.  The Conte Center for Suicide Prevention uses two brain imaging modalities, positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), along with several biobehavioral measures to study risk and resilience factors for suicide in patients with major depression. 


    In this radio program, we will describe how we seek to prevent suicide by studying the brain biology and abnormalities in stress coping and mood regulation that increase risk of suicidal behavior, and then seeking ways to reverse these effects.

    MadU: with hosts Sarah Knutson and Lauren Tenney: An Evening with Pat Risser

    in Current Events

    Tonight on Mad U – 9-11 PM EASTERN. An Evening with Pat Risser. Pat Risser has been a psych rights activist and advocate for nearly 3 decades. His journey from childhood trauma/ abuse to mental health system trauma/ abuse to peer-supported recovery, healing and wholeness is powerful and compelling. In this episode, Pat will take us on a tour of his life, his work, his writing and his webpage. He’ll share his experience of what helped, what didn’t, where we’ve come as a movement, what needs to change, and how we can go about getting there.


    From Pat: "I had been brainwashed by the psychiatric system to be hopeless, helpless and overly dependent. So now I've dedicated the greater part of my life to try and reach people who are currently affected by the system and deprogram them from the cult of psychiatry."


    About Pat: Pat is a semi-retired, award-winning Mental Health Consultant who provides training and workshops for consumers/survivors throughout the country. Pat has extensive experience as an author trainer, facilitator, presenter and consultant. He’s been a human rights activist, mental health advocate and trauma champion for over twenty-five years. Pat has built and directed a statewide consumer network, directed a patients' rights program and developed countless self-help, peer support groups. Pat entered the mental health system at age 21. He survived over 20 hospitalizations for a raft of purported diagnosis entitling him to a boatload of pyschiatric drugs, none of which helped. He brings perspectives as a consumer/survivor, professional provider, administrator and family member.

    FATE, Foundation Aiding The Elderly with Carole Herman

    in Family

    Guest: Carole Herman


    After a three-year uphill battle with apathetic officials, files that mysteriously disappeared, several closures of her Aunt’s case with no action, and a pattern of stonewalling by state agencies created to protect patients from abuse and poor care, two things happened: The district administrator of the agency that licensed and monitored nursing homes was fired and Carole Herman, who fought the system for three years, founded FATE, Foundation Aiding The Elderly.


    Carole protects the weak, fights the powerful, demands government do its job and doctor's to fulfill the Hippocratic Oath.


    In October 2001 Carole was a Volunteer Spirit Award winner receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award for her work with FATE on behalf of the elderly and in February 2002 Carole was presented with a Resolution from the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors for "her dedication and care for the elderly of our community."


    Today, FATE has affiliated organizations and colleagues fighting elderly patient's rights in Texas, Kansas, Ohio, Tennessee, Illinois, Nebraska, Oklahoma and South Carolina. FATE has helped families all over the country. Civil actions have been filed on behalf of patients and their families. And the movement to illuminate and reverse the all-too-common incidents of abuse such as neglect, psychiatric drugging and criminal assaults of the elderly is growing.


    FATE fulfills a vital and increasing need of providing direct action advocacy and education that will ensure that care is received with the dignity that everyone deserves.

    Healing Hands

    in Spirituality

    TPN Radio Presents the Healing Hands Show with Leslie Dolan.


    Leslie's best gift is being an empath and is able to feel others easily whether it be from Tarot Readings or from one on one interactions with basically anyone.


    She has always been an empath but developed the gift over the last 21 years with her nursing career. She has had to communicate with her patients that more often than not in a state where they cannot speak due to heath issues. She worked mostly in ICU and in hospice. Often these patients were not able to speak. Leslie learned very quickly how to meet their needs and make them comfortable.


    She is trained in a healing art called SAFA which was developed by Dr. Beth John of Farmingdale, New York. This healing art combines the Hawaiian's perspectives on healing with quantum physics. This is done by scanning a person's body and redirecting their own energy to heal what ails them.  Very often psychic impressions come to Leslie through scanning a person's body which she will communicate to them. This art can be done in person or from a distance.
