    Mental Illness and the Stigma of it All

    in Family

     


                When it comes to medical assistance, public attention and resources, mental illness has been put on the back shelf around the globe for centuries now.  How mental illness has been perceived and dis [AB1] shuffled, and what has kept it from getting its past due recognition, is stemmed from a long list of factors.  Some such as ignorance, isolation, discrimination, and prejudice; has have negatively impacted the labeling theory, which is attributed and linked to stigma associated with mental disorders; and such stigma can be eliminated, if we can all recognize that the mentally ill can be productive members of society. Social stigma has been, and still is, the utmost contributor to the distant silence that has inhumanely sustained mental illness in asylums, and along with family secrets, such as “differences" never to be shared with neighboring people or friends of employment, in fear of judgment or loss of job.   There isn't anyone who isn't affected by mental illness.  It affects someone's family member, to in all different ethnic groups, from the young to the old, to your community, schools or place of employment, or even maybe yourself. Mental illness is a costly, debilitating disease, and it comes in many different forms.  Unfortunately, it gets more recognition through stigma than public awareness and education; therefore, we must make an effort, and all learn what it means to live with mental illness and how society can work together to break down the barriers from stigma associated with it. Please join me this Friday night Feb 28th at 7pm CT as I discuss this delicate topic that so many are affected by.

    Live:Your Health In Your Hands...Mental Health Stigma- help with essential oils

    in Music

    This is a very personal subject for me. My sister suffered with Bipolar disorder and Schizophrenia for most of her life. My family and I recognized her struggles when she was in junior high school. Her mood swings were severe and she was almost impossible to relate to or communicate with in a rational way. I became very distanced from her. I was the bubbly, outgoing type and I just couldn’t understand her depression and sadness. And sometimes she could be very mean, and that shook me because she was really a very kind person at heart. During this time it never occurred to my parents to take her to a doctor for a diagnosis of a mental illness. They just thought it was a phase and she’d outgrow it. Things escalated in her high school years and finally, when she was a senior, she was diagnosed with the 2 mental illnesses I spoke of above. Problem was, she was 18 and she wouldn’t go on the medication. She was sure it would harm her. So she spent her life in and out of depression and unfathomable agony. Her life seemed joyless and this affected me greatly. This story ends sadly; last year my sister passed away. Her paranoia kept her from ever going to a doctor and her body just wore itself out from untold sickness that was never diagnosed. – I have so much knowledge now about Essential Oils and how many ways they can heal our bodies and minds. It’s a true shame that I was never able to reach her with all of this. I can, however, tell you about some oils that can work alongside medications to help with people’s symptoms http://www.buyessentialoilshere.com/more-success-stories/bipolar-disorder-and-essential-oils/

    Jack Mackenroth (Project Runway) Talks HIV Anti Stigma

    in Lifestyle

    Mandy Goodhandy and Todd Klinck will talk with Jack Mackenroth (of Project Runway fame) about a new initiative he is working on called "HIV Equal" HIV Equal is a national multimedia campaign that aims to end HIV stigma and promote HIV testing by creating a social art movement which reignites the national dialogue about HIV/AIDS. The concept of HIV Equal was created by Jack Mackenroth, a long-time HIV activist and Project Runway alumnus, and celebrity photographer Thomas Evans. The campaign photos include people from all walks of life who support the concept that regardless of one’s HIV status, we are all equally valuable. To help promote HIV testing, every person who takes part in the campaign will also be tested for HIV. As the campaign grows, this will help take the fear out of HIV testing. And as young people see their role models in the photos, they will want to become a part of the HIV Equal movement, as well. www.HIVequal.org Jack Mackenroth (born April 29, 1969) is an American swimmer, model, and fashion designer who competed in the fourth season of American reality show Project Runway. Mackenroth was the first openly HIV-positive contestant in the show's history.  Twitter:   @HIVequal   @jackmackenroth Instagram  @HIVequal www.facebook.com/jackmackenroth www.facebook.com/jackmackenrothfanpage www.facebook.com/HIVequal
