S9E5 - A Crisis Among Men Pt. 2
Send us a Text Message.This is our follow up to last week's episode, and if you listened to the 3nd you are about to hear those topics mentioned. Thank you for all the support. Why Is Men's Mental Health Month Ignored?There are various factors that may contribute to the perception of neglect or lesser attention towards men’s mental health specifically which are listed below:Societal expectations: Traditional gender roles often place an emphasis on men being strong, stoic, and self-reliant, which can discourage men from seeking help or expressing their emotions. This societal expectation may contribute to a lack of awareness or conversation around men’s mental health issues.Stigma surrounding mental health: Mental health issues, in general, have historically carried a significant stigma, and this can affect men as well. Men may face additional challenges due to societal norms that discourage them from seeking help or expressing vulnerability. The stigma surrounding mental health can deter men from seeking support or discussing their struggles openly.Limited awareness and resources: There may be a lack of awareness or understanding regarding the specific mental health challenges that men face. This could result in limited resources, services, and support networks available specifically for men’s mental health. Insufficient resources can contribute to the perception that men’s mental health is being overlooked.This week we would like to highlight Man Therapy if you would like to learn more or donate click here https://mantherapy.org/explore-topics/head-inspectionPlease leave a comment and review our episode and give some feedback on what we can improve on!Thank You All For Listening and DownloadingWe drop an episode every ThursdayFollow us on all of our socialsSupport the Show.The 988 Lifeline988 is now active across the United States.

S9E3 - Downtown Narrative
Send us a Text Message.We hope you like us a whole lot. We go downtown to potential talk to strangers to see what they have to say. We enjoyed the people who were willing to talk with us for a little while. Thank you from Jeremy and McCahill. We would like to share a bit of information about Alabama. Alabama ranks dead last in mental healthcare availability as of Februar  29, 2024.  The most common mental health illnesses are anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorders (WHO Mental Well-Being).According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 41 percent of AL adults sought medical treatment for a mental health issue between 2017-2019. Now we all have the voice to change the way our state and others view mental health. We hope that one day it isn't a stigma to have something mentally wrong with you or someone you love. We need your help and others to spread the word on this. We also would like to plan a day where we go back out and record in public because it was such a fun event for us and we hope you follow our socials to get the scoop to stay in that loop.

Send us a Text Message.Please give a nice warm welcome to India Box, an advocate for raising awareness on narcissistic abuse.  India has recently found the help she needed through therapy, and she wanted to bring awareness to this topic. india works in the television industry and is now happily married to a great guy, but she had to get through this hard period of time to become the strong woman we know her as.  Instagram Handle @theindiaagdThe narcissistic abuse cycle is a vicious and damaging pattern of behavior that is all too common in relationships where one partner is a narcissist.  Understanding the Narcissistic Abuse Cycle is crucial as it provides insight into the patterns of an abusive relationship marked by emotional and psychological abuse. By recognizing these patterns, individuals are better equipped to seek help and navigate their path towards narcissistic abuse recovery. IdealizationIn the idealization phase, the narcissist puts their partner on a pedestal and worships them. They will make them feel like they are the most special and important person in the world. This can be a very intoxicating feeling, and it is often what keeps people in the relationship despite the red flags that may be present.Devaluation  - You're never good enough, You're not pretty/smart/successful enough, You're not doing things the right way, You're not meeting their needsDiscarding -The narcissist will abruptly break up with their partner and leave them without any explanation, The narcissist will cheat on their partner and then blame them for it, The narcissist will ghost their partner and completely disappear from their lifeHoovering-"I'm sorry for everything, I miss you so much. I promise to change, just please come back.", "I know we had some problems but I can't stop thinking about you. I still love you.", "You're the only one who really understands me.

S8E11 - All Natural
Send us a Text Message.Could being outside, playing in soil, taking a hike, and immersing yourself in your surroundings increase your seratonin?When rating gardening benefits, gardeners often note reductions in stress, tension and anxiety. Research proves this is more than a feeling. One study had participants complete a psychologically stressful task and then measured cortisol, Periods of gardening or reading followed. While both groups showed lower levels of cortisol after these activities, the gardening group was significantly lower, indicating greater physical relief from acute stress. They also reported greater improvement in their moods.Nature’s therapeutic power: Spending time in nature has been shown to have a positive influence on mental health. Hiking allows individuals to immerse themselves in the beauty of natural surroundings, providing a sense of calm, peace, and connection with the environment. The sights, sounds, and scents of nature can evoke a soothing effect, reducing stress, anxiety, and depression.Physical activity and endorphin release: Hiking is a form of physical exercise that stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural mood-boosting chemicals. These endorphins promote feelings of happiness, euphoria, and overall well-being. Regular hiking can help alleviate symptoms of depression, enhance mood stability, and increase energy levels.This week we would like to highlight Center for Nature Informed Therapy if you would like to learn more or donate click here https://www.natureinformedtherapy.com/Please leave a comment and review our episode and give some feedback on what we can improve on!Thank You All For Listening and DownloadingWe drop an episode every ThursdayFollow us on all of our socialsSupport the Show.The 988 Lifeline988 is now active across the United States.

S8E9 - In My Control
Send us a Text Message.The Circle of Concern, Influence, and ControlThe concept of the circle of control is often associated with Stephen Covey. The circle of control is the innermost circle, representing the things that we have direct control over. These are the things that we can change or influence directly, such as our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Covey suggests that highly effective people focus their time and energy on the things within their circle of control rather than trying to control things outside of their sphere of influence.The circle of concern, influence, and control is a model that helps to clarify the different areas of responsibility and levels of control we have in our lives.The outer first circle represents the things within our circle of concern. We care about or impact us in some way, but we don't have direct control over these things. Examples might include global events like a pandemic, other people's actions, or natural disasters.The middle circle represents the things within our circle of influence. We can impact or change these things through our actions, but outside factors may still influence them. Examples might include our relationships, work, or personal habits and behaviors.The inner smaller circle represents the things that are within our circle of control. These are the things that we have the power to change or influence directly. Examples of things like our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.This can help you to feel more in control of your circumstances and more empowered to create the outcomes you want.This week we would like to highlight  National Minority Health Month  and The OrganizIf you would like to learn more or donate click here https://www.marchofdimes.org/ways-to-give/donatePlease leave a comment and review our episode and give some feedback on what we can improve on!Thank You All For Listening and DownloadingWe drop an episode every ThursdayFollow us on all of our socialsSupport the Show.The 988 Lifeline988 is now active across the United States.

S8E8 - A Simple Secret
Send us a Text Message.Do you ever feel like your secret is weighing on you? Are you the secret safe in someone's life? Do people come to you because they can trust you? We all have secrets – parts of ourselves or our past that we keep hidden. At first, a secret may feel like a form of protection, but ultimately the anxiety, fear, shame, regret and guilt take a toll on our body and mind.Secrets come in many forms such as trauma, unhealthy behavior or even negative beliefs about oneself. It’s easy to internalize them without realizing how harmful they are to our health.We find out alot about who why and where these secrets come from.

S8E6 - Planning and The Blame
Send us a Text Message.Do you get blamed for a lot of things, even the ones that aren’t your fault? There are many factors as to why family members would treat you this way. Personality disorders, racial discrimination, gender discrimination, and past trauma are just some. Being in a dysfunctional environment such as this can certainly take a toll on your physical and mental health. That’s why if you find that you’re currently stuck in this situation, please don’t hesitate to ask for help.Keep in touch with supportive friends, distant relatives, or even professional workers and let them know how you’re doing. It’s not good to keep everything inside as well as harboring grudges either. Have forgiveness in your heart and know that there is always a way out of it.Have you ever had a family member badmouth you in front of friends or guests? It certainly doesn’t feel great, and chances are, the words still ring clear in your head until now. This situation usually happens when you’re raised by narcissistic parents. Because they want to appear perfect to other people, they would distance themselves from things that would possibly disrupt that illusion, even if it’s through badmouthing their own relatives.Have you ever had a family member yell at you for an error they personally made? They don’t know how to cope with the sudden burst of their energy. They might yell or lash out at you for something that you are in no way related to just because they can. Put some distance between you two and be careful not to engage with them in their state. You are not the problem here. First, accept that what they’re saying about you isn’t true. You are a wonderful person. Next, understand that every person faces battles of their own. After you’ve learned to accept yourself, it’s likely time to accept that your family members are flawed people, too. It’s never about you.

Different from the normal ups and downs that everyone goes through, the symptoms of bipolar disorder are severe. Untreated bipolar disorder can result in poor job or school performance, damaged relationships, and even suicide. Here is good news: bipolar disorder is very treatable, and people with this illness can lead full and productive lives.About 5.7 million American adults, or about 2.6 percent of the population, age 18 and older in any given year, have bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder typically develops in late adolescence or early adulthood. However, some people have their first symptoms during childhood, and some develop them late in life. It is often not recognized as an illness, and people may suffer for years before it is properly diagnosed and treated. Like diabetes or heart disease, bipolar disorder is a long-term illness that must be carefully managed throughout a person’s life.We hope you enjoy this and consider helping out!Please leave a comment and review our episode and give some feedback on what we can improve on!Thank You All For Listening and DownloadingWe drop an episode every ThursdayFollow us on all of our socialsSupport the Show.The 988 Lifeline988 is now active across the United States.

S8E3 - Self Control and an Empath
Send us a Text Message.Self-control or the ability to manage one's impulses, emotions, and behaviors to achieve long-term goal is what separates humans from the rest of the animal kingdom. Self-control is primarily rooted in the prefrontal cortex the planning, problem-solving, and decision making center of the brain which is significantly larger in humans than in other mammals.The richness of nerve connections in the prefrontal cortex enables people to plan, evaluate alternative actions, and ideally avoid doing things they'll later regret, rather than immediately respond to every impulse as it arises.What is an empath? A person who is highly attuned to the energies and emotions of those around them may be considered an empath. Empaths are said to feel what others are feeling so deeply that they “absorb” or “take on” the emotions themselves, often at the expense of their own emotional well-being.Empathy depends on your ability to overcome your own perspective, appreciate someone else's, and step into their shoes. Self-control is essentially the same skill, except that those other shoes belong to your future self—a removed and hypothetical entity who might as well be a different person.We hope you enjoy this and consider helping out!Please leave a comment and review our episode and give some feedback on what we can improve on!Thank You All For Listening and DownloadingWe drop an episode every ThursdayFollow us on all of our socialsSupport the Show.The 988 Lifeline988 is now active across the United States.

S8E2 - TDVAM
Send us a Text Message.National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month (TDVAM).  This is an issue that impacts everyone – not just teens – but their parents, teachers, friends and communities as well.  Together, we can raise the nation’s awareness about teen dating violence and promote safe, healthy relationships.Nationwide, youth age 12 to 19 experience the highest rates of rape and sexual assault.  Studies show that approximately 10% of adolescents report being the victim of physical violence at the hands of an intimate partner during the previous year.  Girls are particularly vulnerable to experiencing violence in their relationships and are more likely to suffer long-term behavioral and health consequences, including suicide attempts, eating disorders, and drug use.Everyone can make a difference by reaching out to young people in simple ways. Discussing the warning signs of dating abuse (all kinds, not just physical abuse). Creating a positive connection to the issue – talk about the characteristics of healthy teen relationships, not just abusive ones – and use statistics sparingly.Talking about how the media portrays healthy and unhealthy relationships.  For example, many popular movies, TV shows, commercials, books, and magazines portray stalking as romantic or harmless when it is actually very dangerous. If you know of a teen or parent that could benefit from speaking to a caring, well-trained peer advocate, please connect them with the National Dating Abuse Helpline, a project of the National Domestic Violence Hotline, at 1-866-331-9474 (TTY: 1-866-331-8453), by texting "loveis" to 77054, or through live chat at loveisrespect.org.We hope you enjoy this and consider helping out!Please leave a comment and review our episode and give some feedback on what we can improve on!Thank You All For Listening and DownloadingWe drop an episode every ThursdayFollow us on all of our socialsSupport the Show.The 988 Lifeline988 is now active across the United States.

S7E12 - Tough Love (Being Blunt)
Send us a Text Message.What does tough love mean in parenting?"tough love" combined empathy to send a message that essentially says, "I know you don't like the rules, but I'm going to enforce them anyway because it's good for you, and I love you."What is tough love in an adult to an adult form?It doesn't mean you accept maltreatment or abuse but that you love the person. It can also mean being supportive and doing what you can to guide them in a positive direction. Tough love is about maintaining distance and setting boundaries with an individual who is not respecting your boundaries or abilities.Here’s the truth: Tough love isn’t a formula or quick fix to the heartache you face. But it’s the right thing to do in some situations — and the only healthy choice — even if change doesn’t look exactly like you had hoped.To end on a positive everyone is faking it until they make it. Emotions are important in all of your relationships no matter the status, and love is always free to give. We hope you enjoy this and consider helping out!Please leave a comment and review our episode and give some feedback on what we can improve on!Thank You All For Listening and DownloadingWe drop an episode every ThursdayFollow us on all of our socialsSupport the Show.The 988 Lifeline988 is now active across the United States.
