Author and mental health counselor Nina Bingham discusses Suicide Prevention. She educates not only from her academic knowledge, but shares from her own hard-won life experience in a new and profound way. In private practice since 2003, she has treated individuals and couples with a wide variety of mental health issues. Her fifth book, “Once The Storm Is Over: From Grieving to Healing After The Suicide of My Daughter,” is due out in early 2015. It’s the autobiographical confession of a counselor who lost her teen daughter to suicide. What she learned about love and forgiveness changed her life forever.
Topics discussed on our show are listed below. The full blog article and how to contact Nina can be found here:

What are some factors that have helped you overcome the grief, and were key to your healing?
If a mental healthcare professional is experiencing symptoms, or one of their family members is, what is your advice for them?
How has coming out of the mental health closet changed your life?
What can be done to address the stigma that has accompanied mental illness in the past?
If our listeners have a friend or family member who is struggling with mental illness, or if they are, what should they do?

During a visit to Florence Italy we met with a local psychotherapist, Dr. Paolo Molino. It was very interesting to get his views on mental health and the stigma surrounding seeking treatment in Italy.
We discussed his use of Gestalt Psychology, EMDR, emotional clearing for him in between client visits, and how mental illness is viewed in Italy. Paolo is fluent in English, French, and Italian which allows him to work with travelers, expats, and students.

This segment will be the beginning of a series, where we explore why Pres. George Implemented his New Freedom Initiative. This was in response to the consumers having unfair treatment limitations and financial requirements for mental health benefits,using a fragmented mental health system and fighting the stigmatism surrounding mental health issues.
Are you having issues dealing with the world around you today? Have you sought professional support and walked away not helped or satisfied with the process? Are drugs the only answer for your mental health issues? Is life just throwing curve balls at you and dealing with life is getting harder each day?
My guest is Dr. Amelia Kemp, psychotherapist and author of From Psychotherapy to Sacretherapy: Alternative Holistic Descriptions and Healing Process for 170 Mental and Emotional Diagnoses Worldwide. The process of getting help for our mental and emotional being is often over looked in the healthcare arena and the stigma of needing help is a barrier to seeking treatment or support. No longer are we denying the connection between all areas of our body, mind and spirit as our wellbeing. We are not pieces to be fixed but rather a unit of life that needs to be nurtured and listened to as symptoms arise. Help is available, exercises are included and solutions outlined in this book by Dr. Kemp.

Christ Actualization is Self Transcendence = PART TWO
ARE YOU LIVING UP TO YOUR FULL SPIRITUAL POTENTIAL?
We continue with part 2; Person; Place; POSITION
Galatians 5:19 - 23 - Fruit of the Spirit is Christ Actualization
Self-transcendence: 1. The act or condition of going/being beyond ego or egoity, usually as a result of love, service, non-egoic discipline, or undivided attention for another. 2. An evolutive practice or technique which involves moving beyond prior conceptual, presumptive, or behavioral limitations. 3. A state or condition in which spiritual ecstasy is experienced by virtue of the release of a spirit-being from the confines of ego and egocentrism. 4. Any experience or process through which the spirit-being comes to know itself as it is, i.e., spirit and not ego or lower mind.
WHAT IS CHRIST ACTUALIZATION?
In John 14:12 more or less at the beginning of his long Farewell Speech, Jesus issues a startling pledge to his disciples: "Amen, amen, I say to you, the one who believes into me will do the works that I do, and greater than these she or he will do because I am going to the Father." Throughout most of the history of the Christian movement, such a promise of fabulous possibilities has tended to be regarded as unimaginable and unfulfillable.
