How AP and the WI press does damage control for Governor Drunken Sailor

Yet again I get the impression that Associated Press does whatever it can to protect and/or repair Scott Walker’s image.   Compare the headlines and stories on Walker’s recent FEC filing: From Washington Post (author – Jenna Johnson): How Scott Walker spent $90,000 a day to lose an election   From U.S. News and World Report more »

Everybody didn’t have access to the Democratic Party debate

The editor of Buzzflash at Truthout recently wrote that, “By offering the debates on television only to paid subscribers of television packages that included CNN and Fox News, the most important political interaction between candidates for president of the United States was, essentially, privatized.” If you’re living with a net-enabled digital device seemingly glued to your more »

A CLOSER LOOK AT ALZHEIMER AND AUTISM

Are You Losing Your Mind? The Depths of Autism and Alzheimer

Al Letson,

Arbus Magazine, March/April 2015

Today, I learned a good friend of mine passed away. He’d struggled

with depression for a long time, and I guess it became too much to bear.

He committed suicide yesterday, and his family and friends are devastated.

Normally I wouldn’t post this sort of thing here: It’s personal. But mental

health is a huge problem that we as a country have yet to deal with.

If you are hurting, please, please reach out.

I know its hard, but reach out. If you know someone who is hurting, as

hard as it is, get them help.

Please. It’s a matter of life or death.

A CLOSER LOOK AT ALZHEIMER AND AUTISM MENTAL

HEALTH INITIATIVE SYMPOSIUM

Taking a closer look at mental health issues that society is dealing with

and medical science has a clinical definition and diverse treatment options.

Autism and Alzheimer affects the most sensitive and important part of the

human body……………. The Brain. The center of what is ultimately each of US.

AAMHI will be hosting their next Symposium on Saturday, October 17th at

the Community Rehabilitation Center (CRC) in Jacksonville, Florida at 10:00am.

The topics will focus on Alzheimer and Autism. While Alzheimer’s is not

considered a mental illness; a person can still experience some of the symptoms;

(ie depression, agitation, hallucinations, etc.). The AAMHI wants to shed a very

“bright” light on Autism; which is affecting so many of our children! These children

are attending schools that are public, private and charter. Their services are

unique just as each individual child is unique individual.

Parents are concerned that their child(ren) are receiving them best educational,

clinical and medical services available so these young people have an equal

opportunity to services and a productive life as others.

There will be Testimonials and Speakers who will be sharing valuable insight and

information. Answering questions and sharing resources.

Professional Speakers that will be present are:

Sherri Peterson Walker

Alzheimer Ambassador for the State of Florida

Shelia Christie

Autism Advocate Medical Professionals

Doris Chance

Physician Assistant

Dr. Mia R. Wilson, Ed.D. LMHC, NCC, MAC, CAP

Owner — Private Practice Sankofa Behavioral

Health Services – http://drmiawilson.vpweb.com/

We literally need to adopt a “VILLAGE” mentality to help heal TROUBLED

minds in our homes and communities; neighbor helping neighbor, people helping

people; being, in essence – “Our Brother’s KEEPER”!
