Many of the 500+ SFN Mentor Fathers, who are raising kids with special needs, have said: "I wish there was something like this when we first received our child's diagnosis. I felt so isolated. There was no one within my family, at work, at church or within my friend group who understood or could relate to what I was going through."SFN Mentor Fathers share their experiences with younger dads closer to the beginning of their journey raising a child with the same or similar special needs. The SFN Mentor Fathers do NOT offer legal or medical advice, that is what lawyers and doctors do. They simply share their experiences and how they have made the most of challenging situations.

In this episode, I interview social worker, Valerie Wise, about the correlation between mental illness and incarceration in the Black and Brown communities. Valerie recommends a biographical book by L. C. Bruce on the topic-- https://books.google.com/books/about/Fit_for_Trial.html?id=nJ9kzgEACAAJ (Fit for Trial: Mental Illness, the Law and Family Loss) coming January 17, 2022. We discuss the effects of generational trauma and systemic racism that is still active today. We shine the light on the problem and ask each listener to do what they can around their own moral compass of what is right. Valerie recommends and belongs to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).

Episode #11 of Liv Louder is here! A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be a guest on the Awkward Insurance Podcast hosted by the lovely and talented Dustyne Bryant and Cat Ferris.  I agreed to the interview on one condition: they had to return the favor.  And true to their word, they sat down with me to be "grilled" on my show. Over the course of a couple of conversations, I feel like the three of us have become friends who happen to also be hosting podcasts.  I loved getting an opportunity to dig into life.  This interview goes a lot of different directions as we cover everything from Thanksgiving vs Christmas, how our individual differences create strengths in teams, and what happens when we know and own our value.  You will definitely hear the word "willingness" A LOT (apologies in advance for how much we use it), but believe me when I say we just couldn't escape the critical impact of it! I have truly enjoyed every moment that I've gotten to spend with Dustyne and Cat, getting to know them as insurance professionals, moms, and all the things that make up the wonderful women they are.  I know, without a doubt, they will inspire you to Liv Louder!

Insane asylums evoke images of straight jackets and padded cells.  There, deranged and forgotten souls were doomed to a life of isolation and anguish.  It's no wonder that these structures are steeped in tales of ghostly sightings.  Perhaps some tortured spirits were never discharged.  Many of us claim to have encountered them. The Athens Lunatic Asylum, known today as The Ridges, is a case in point. Come hear the tales of two locals with unique insights and unusual experiences of their own.  One, Mr. Steve “Tebes” Caul spent his childhood living there with his psychiatrist father and family.  The other, Mr. Matt Box, recalled summers working the grounds around the looming structure.  Their personal memories add depth to our understanding of this storied place. Come learn of an effort to identify the names of those former patients who rest in graves adjacent to the property.  Click here to connect with the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI) and their worthy cause to restore and engrave broken headstones: https://namiathensohio.org/get-involved/the-ridges-cemeteries/    If you enjoy this episode, please rate, review and subscribe to Ohio Folklore on your chosen podcast platform.  You can also find Ohio Folklore at:  Ohiofolklore.comFacebook.com/ohiofolklore And as always, keep wondering…

Today I got to chat with Heather Loeb, founder and creator of www.unrulyneurons.com, recent recipient of the Betty Fullenwider Media Award for her inspirational work in normalizing mental health, and my amazing cousin. Heather was also recently named to the leadership team for NAMI of Greater Corpus Christi. NAMI is the National Alliance of Mental Illness, the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by mental illness (www.NAMIGCC.org). You may recall Heather from Episode 14: Finding Hope and Healing in Recovery and Living with Depression and Mental Illness. Today, Heather drops more little nuggets of wisdom as we approach the holidays. Today we dive into how to plan around the holidays, how to deal with those strong, family personalities and those that like to poke the bear. Heather gives us some specific tools to enjoy the holidays, people, and manage our expectations. We talk through and demonstrate some grounding and breathing techniques to override our primal brain that only sees perceived dangers and doom. Lastly, we share some techniques on how to process grief during these times.   You can follow Heather at her newly re-designed and revamped website: www.unrulyneurons.com, her column in The Corpus Christi Caller Times (www.caller.com) and lots of good videos and other golden nuggets on Heather's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/unrulyneurons).

There are more than 35 million unpaid caregivers who provide unpaid services to an adult age 50 or older in the US.  According to the AARP Public Policy Institute, the economic value of unpaid caregiving exceeds $470B.  According to the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP, Family caregivers spend an average of 24.4 hours per week providing care and nearly 1 in 4 caregivers spends 41 hours or more per week providing care.  And 24% of caregivers provide care for more than 5 years.  These numbers are astonishing. The caregiver is the unsung hero who often suffers physically, emotionally and financially while putting others first.  Today we are going to hear from my good friend, Alexandra Drane who is the co-founder and CEO of Archangel.  Alex will tell us about the impact of caregiving on the caregiver and what she and others at Archangel are doing about it.  Show notes: Book Hell's Angels: A Strange and Terrible Saga by Hunter S.

Bob has learned to live well with Bipolar (Type I) Disorder and has been teaching caregivers how to support their mentally ill loved one for several years now. His secret? Education is the secret weapon against this illness. He's found that the more he knew about his illness, the better he got. So, he poured himself into dozens of books and hundreds of research papers to learn everything he could about it. For all that this illness ripped from his grasp – a 24-year marriage, an intact family, a successful career, financial security, and many friends – it has given him a potent way to help others. For this, he is deeply grateful. It is his hope that the pain he's experienced will become someone else's gain, and that his hard-fought discoveries can become others through the work that he does together. Bob holds a national certification from the Copeland Center to teach their Wellness Recovery Action Plan Course in the United States. He is a popular speaker through the National Alliance on Mental Illness's (NAMI) “In Our Own Voice Program” and is a Washington State Certified Trainer for the same. He serves on the Board of Directors for NAMI's Eastside chapter.

As medical research continues to confirm that many natural remedies to common and sometimes catastrophic illnesses are safe and effective, many physicians find themselves in an untenable dilemma. While their Hippocratic Oath demands that they do no harm and are required to treat the patient in front of them regardless of the circumstances, they are prevented by law from recommending alternative natural therapies that may well help and even save many patients' lives. The cause is a series of restrictions placed on them, and promoted vigorously by pharmaceutical companies who stand to lose millions if patients are guided toward non-pharmaceutical cures, according to Dr. Mary Zennett, author of Health For Us All: The Transformation of U.S. Healthcare. She believes that we need to break the stranglehold placed on physicians, so that they can be true to their oath and help those patients for whom pharmaceuticals are not a solution.

As medical research continues to confirm that many natural remedies to common and sometimes catastrophic illnesses are safe and effective, many physicians find themselves in an untenable dilemma. While their Hippocratic Oath demands that they do no harm and are required to treat the patient in front of them regardless of the circumstances, they are prevented by law from recommending alternative natural therapies that may well help and even save many patients' lives. The cause is a series of restrictions placed on them, and promoted vigorously by pharmaceutical companies who stand to lose millions if patients are guided toward non-pharmaceutical cures, according to Dr. Mary Zennett, author of Health For Us All: The Transformation of U.S. Healthcare. She believes that we need to break the stranglehold placed on physicians, so that they can be true to their oath and help those patients for whom pharmaceuticals are not a solution.

With staff shortages and the rationing of care, who gets an inpatient bed and who doesn't?Today, as never before, mental stress is the new norm. And with the pandemic pandemonium comes the annual National Mental Health Awareness Week, sponsored by the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI). At this intersection is the tragic reality that millions of Americans are living with some form of mental health condition.Reporting on mental health during the next edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays will be Dr. H. Steven Moffic, an award-winning author who is considered by many to be among America's most prominent psychiatrists.The live broadcast will also feature these other segments:The Coding Report: In keeping with the broadcast's theme, Laurie Johnson will report on the new psychiatric codes for fiscal year 2022.Tuesday Focus: Author and consultant Ellen Fink-Samnick will return to the broadcast to report on workplace trauma, noting how trauma has gripped the national workforce, with an intense collective induced stress felt by professionals, patients, and then experienced by frontline practitioners.RegWatch: Stanley Nachimson, former Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) career professional-turned-well-known healthcare IT authority, will report on the latest regulatory news coming out of Washington, D.C.News Desk: Timothy Powell, compliance expert and ICD10monitor national correspondent, will anchor the Talk Ten Tuesdays News Desk.TalkBack: Erica Remer, MD, founder and president of Erica Remer, MD, Inc., and Talk Ten Tuesdays co-host, will report on a subject that has caught her attention during her popular segment.

I had such a great discussion with Mari Marquez for this episode. It was so much fun talking to Mari twice over the course of a few days – once for her show, and once for mine. It really was lovely to connect with her and hear all about her experiences, and also her blog, podcast, and children's book, all of which bring badly-needed resources to widowed parents. And, importantly, she was very honest in our discussion about how very hard it was for her right after her husband died, and how much she struggled. This can be a real issue, and I'm grateful Mari was willing to talk about it. Some topics Mari and I discuss include: Losing her husband, Alex, in a terrible burn accident when their daughter was just 13 months old; Feeling lost in the following months, and almost ending her own life; Realizing that she needed to seek support; Wondering how she would explain to her baby that her dad had died; Finding resources from the National Alliance for Children's Grief; Starting her blog, embracingwidowhood.com, in order to help other young widows find resources; Her thoughts on the difference between solo parenting and single parenting; Learning that she can't ignore her daughter's grief, even though sometimes people think it won't  affect her because she is so young; and Why she wrote a children's picture book about grief.
