Forgot the review, how about their is a show out about actually having a mental illness. I think it’s only in the Uk, but bravo UK! I’ll wait until it comes on Netflix 🙂
Yes! Finally Some recognition from the White House!
Don’t you think this is just a little too late coming??
Oh well! At least some wheels are rolling
Please check out this great article about the first class of Mental Health First Aid program!
GOOOO HONG KONG! Fight for your voice!
If they can learn to speak up for their voice, Mental Illness advocates and sufferers should too.
Spread the message today of hope.
Get out of the house, and help someone.
Blog your feelings, don’t let them inside.
Someone else might stumble across then.
Get Mentally involved in the News! Thinking about others and finding solutions is what we need. Not another black rain cloud
I couldn’t help myself..
So glad that people in the public are trying to help out mental illness patients, but I think we may need someone who has a little more IT factor for it to be listened to…
How about Oprah?
Thanks Anderson for bringing more light on such a dark subject!
“The suspect in the Thursday shootings at Seattle Pacific University has been treated in recent years for a “long-standing mental illness,” which his attorney said might have prompted the deadly assault inside an engineering building at the small Christian campus.”
Oh really… you don’t say.
It seems like our brethren doesn’t know how to yell out for help. Or maybe the people around them are denying them help. I don’t know what’s going on but I know that there needs to be a way for them to yell out before hurting someone…
or maybe they have been yelling for help, but no one is listening…
Are you left brained or right? Well if you don’t know find out HERE. For me, I use both sides of my brain equally. I googled left or right brained tests and every one I finished said that I use both sides equally, which surprised me because I KNOW I’m not left brained. I’m also not that right brained either…
The brain is a deep deep place. Enjoy the test, the photos, and YOUR BRAIN!!
Godism gave me a great idea to talk about BRAIN FREEZES for BRAIN AWARENESS WEEK. Here is an kid’s webpage (I thought it was cute!) that talks all about brain freezes. I never knew anything about brain freezes before this post other than they are chilling! (get it! Ha!)
Another great reason our brains are too COOL for mental illness. Literally 🙂
I don’t much about anything military, so but I quote this from the article:
“One reason for the rise in these figures may have been the rush to fill ranks during the Afghanistan and Iraq war years, with recruiters telling enlistees to not volunteer that they had mental health afflictions.”
Are these recruiters getting money with every person enlisted through them? If so, WE NEED TO CUT THAT. How many mentally illed people UN-VOLUNTARILY were there too? If you can’t tell the people around you sometimes that you have a mental illness, then how are you going to tell a recruiter that is waving money and benefits at you.
I wanted to join the military. I stood crying in my living room to my husband about how I might think that the military was the only thing left for me. My life was shit. I was going to amount to nothing.. I was also in the not medicated, drinking, smoking, losing it, mind running, really really angry, happy one minute, bad thoughts zone, but thought about enlisting. I didn’t.
I didn’t want to put someone’s else life in my hands at times, when I couldn’t hold my own.
So, here I am..
“Rock Forever21, but she just turned thirty”
– Kayne West
p.s. I’m not 30. not yet anyways 🙂
I don’t know why I looked this book up. On the news, they said that once this tour was over, Mötley Crüe was going to end it. Then someone said that Nikki Sixx actually died (which I didn’t know), and then I looked him up and found out that he wrote a book based on his diary he kept in the 80s. I got intrigued.
So, I looked online for the PDF and found it:
I found that it’s actually really good, and it dives right into his addiction and pain. It made me feel the same way I did when I was smoking. I wanted to stop, but couldn’t because I felt like I needed it. I felt like nothing without it. It also talks about VANITY, and I loved some vanity…(now she doesn’t go by vanity, and turned into an Evangelist)
If you need a good read about the effects of drugs, read this.
If you’re trying to stop doing drugs, read this.
If your thinking about starting drugs, read this.
Now, Nikki Sixx is clean, but just think what would have happened if he didn’t stop. This book would not be here, and a tour would have been looong gone.
I hope this helps someone.
When you have a mental illness, it seems that all your Positivity is sucked up by it.
Trapped by It. Here are some ways to PRACTICE positivity, because for people like us, we are going to need plenty of practice.
Grow the roses of success
So, wait a dog on minute!
A coach from a BAZILLION dollar sports industry kind of agreed with medicinal marijuana? Really?
So, when is it going to be really MEDICINAL everywhere? Because it’s popping up ALOT!
The NFL is a huge company and arena around the world, and for one of their own to talk about marijuana in a way such as this makes me feel like a revolution is coming.
Next, lets test strains, find out which ones really helps and not make you addicted and lazy, and start putting it into the world for mental illness patients, because does millionaires who play a sport really need marijuana? really??
When are you going to wake up world, and realize, the enemy is in our minds.
Took this MINDFULNESS quiz and the results that stood out for me were:
“Also, you struggle to focus your awareness on the situation at hand; instead, you’re preoccupied with the past or worried about the future. This may make you feel less open and inquisitive toward new experiences and can prevent you from feeling in-the-moment.”
This is so true! I am always thinking about tomorrow or yesterday. It takes so much out of my to pretend-predict what is to come…
I think I my need to practice mindfulness a little more..
My therapist told me this already…I need to listen to her more..
“The Affordable Care Act requires insurers to cover mental health care just as they do physical care, but a new study shows only half of psychiatrists accept insurance”
What? Are you kidding me? Just kick us while were heading down. I thought that Obamacare was suppose to help us…now doctor’s aren’t even accepting it!?
What a crock of shit.
Who are these people making these decisions? Are they even consulting mental illness patients?
