Threats of ‘armed protests’ in multiple cities challenge National Guard support for inauguration
"Online about calling for armed demonstrations at state capitals all over the country. And then there's a call for people who were actually involved. In last week's violence to arm up get into cars go back to Washington, despite the fact that there may well be 20,000 National Guard members in addition to thousands of police stations At the inauguration and around Washington next week when Joe Biden takes the oath. Security be damned. These people are our loosely affiliated and loosely organized. It seems and Josh I was struck by something that The FBI bulletin we obtained today revealed that they saw January 6th not as as the end, but as it emboldening act that should sperm or That's that's exactly it. You know if you look at it to the average person, if you're trying to breach a building and take something over and get top of the government, which is what some of these people were actually talking about online. And you don't do it and you get thrown out six hours later and you get arrested. That would seem like a failure. But for the contract, the fact that these people were able to get into the building to get onto the property to get into Speaker. Pelosi's office actually force Congress to stop its business. And to hide for their lives that is now being viewed by by these insurrectionists. As as a success literally a success. So we now have a situation where the FBI and Homeland security are warning launch forcing around the country that these people are emboldened by their level of success if they could do it. Once they could do it better the next time and on top of it. It seems that the oddest of things happened that you had such an amalgam off fringe groups at the Capitol last week with Cuban on followers and white supremacists and the or Nazis and militia followers and oath keepers. The FBI is now saying that these groups found that they could act together, so they're starting to coordinate which, frankly, is terrifying because we know that we live in a country that because of the long history of gun rights. In the United States that there are just a lot of guns. It's a very big country, and there are a lot of people that are very angry right now. And that anger and those guns the FBI fears may be concentrated in in particular states this coming weekend. Right, So they're the warnings that have been put out in the last three days of even over the weekend was basically that law enforcement should be particularly worried about violence on Capitol Hill again and then in state capitals around the country, But there's a reality. First of all, A lot of states don't particularly have very big. Militia movements. We're not talking about tens of thousands of people. We're talking about hundreds of people, Maybe a couple of 1000 in some cases, So what we're now learning is that they are the The FBI and homeland security want law enforcement to be on alert around the country, but they really are are focusing their concern in places where you would expect places that have sizable militia followers. And among those places where there also were overheated post election feelings and and a lot of the fight over the allegedly stolen ballots, which obviously were not stolen. Things like that. So they're looking at places like Michigan Life. Pennsylvania, Wisconsin was another battleground state, Minnesota and so they're looking at, but they the FBI is Telling people even telling law enforcement even in places like saying New York or California, where you might not necessarily expect it that that local law enforcement around those capital cities in Sacramento and Albany, for instance, that they cannot let their guards down.

WNBA players celebrate Warnock's projected win over Loeffler
"Right. Before the insurrection at the capital there was two senate runoff elections that the country had their is on in one of them. The reverend raphael warnock defeated the incumbent. Appointed senator kelly leffler in georgia. Kelly leffler for about ten years has been a partial owner of the atlanta dream of the wnba. She's now the majority owner but she's been around the team for now ten or eleven years and you may have heard her own players and much of the wnba is diametrically opposed to everything that leffler stands force. It was a very interesting situation to see everything develop earlier this week. And then how it works in the team dynamic for more on that. Let's welcome and renee. Montgomery actually a guard for the atlanta dream. She joins us this morning. She's actually rejoining us this morning a second time. She's been on with this. Good morning to you so i guess the first thing i gotta ask you is being a member of the team and understanding everything. That's going on on the floor in off the floor. What's the reaction of you and your teammates to misled losing this election. So i'm just gonna speak for myself and the reaction is. It's not even just her losing. Its rafael worn off. One and i wanna make sure that the messaging stays clear because there's some things that happened on january six is trying to take away from the fact that a black man is going to send it a jewish man from georgia's going to send it and we won the presidential race so i would say for me. It's a sweep. it's a three no sleep. So the the the feeling is happy. Rene speaking of january six. What are your thoughts on everything that occurred that day. Yeah you know. It's kinda like we all felt something was gonna happen. I was worried after november. Third ominously like when when the number started tied and we could see that joe biden. Really my win this thing you know. We all started to get a little nervous even here in georgia the aquarium shutdown coach color. They all boarded up their their buildings because we were all expecting some type of reaction and not a good one so then to see what happened on january six and see the lack of policing that was there it was it was disappointing and most call a spade a spade. It was terrorism. Domestic terrorism is the term that we should use for that renee montgomery innately. Sorry thanksgiving i was going to say what is say about the platform that the wnba has like you guys like even a month before. Colin kaepernick took a knee in two thousand sixteen. The wnba pre-game conference about police brutality. You guys were black. Lives matters t shirts before it was even a thing. Guys always been the leader at the forefront say about the platform that you guys have in the work that you guys have been doing you know. I hope people start to licking because a lot of brands. A lot of sponsors. They don't see the value in in women would say 'cause you know. I think i saw a tweet. From china robinson that said of sponsorship for women athletics how chow especially now knowing the impact that a women's league not just so a player but a whole week and have i don't understand why there's no interest but i do hope that just seeing how things transpired and how everyone to see what's going on. I hope that there is some value added to women now. Renee montgomery of the atlanta dream is joining us. This morning on keyshawn jay williams zubin were presented by progressive. Insurance and rene is with us on the goodyear hotline to robinson by the way. Espn women's college basketball analyst shaina. Yes shoutout. I want to ask you this because people may not want to go back to leffler because i think this is just so fascinating with how clear she's been in how clear you guys have been She used to be for people. That aren't aware that maybe don't follow the dream on everyday basis. She used to be a constant present. at games. a practice you'd be a team functions. He was always be sitting in the front row. She was very active owner. Obviously things have changed when she went to the senate got other responsibilities. I just wonder what your relationship is with her. The team's relationship with her you know even before the senator race i would just fear before the games. We've been to her house. Where team function. But i mean any of the players know you're not usually best friends with owner in general you know you typically would talk more to your g Even when it comes to contracts and stuff so we did see her there and we would wait and she was you know. I know that she released herself. From you. know day to day duties as she became a senator but she was president and the wnba. I know probably the letter was her trying to distance herself. Thing is how she's republican and the wnba. Is you know highly majority. Lgbt in black and brown community. So i can understand why she's trying to distance ourselves but it wasn't the case beforehand. Rene we're kind of personal discussions if any at all have you had. We'll often about social justice nine. I'm you know this was a typical owner-player relationship. So you know. I never talked to my minnesota on her about social justice. And i know that this time is is different but by the time that all of these things try Started to unfold. You know it was already. She was already too far. gone by. then how do you feel now that everything is transpired and she still co owner of the team for me and this is gonna be unpopular to say but for me. I'm sure she's not the only owner. That probably feels the way she feels. And so i hope that the wnba and hope that you know even her you know i. I've already posed the question. I don't know why he would want to own a wnba team. If you have to write a letter to the commissioner opposing. Everything that that team is standing for you know. Our team is the atlanta dream. And i don't know if people know that's from martin. Luther king's dream speech. That's how we got our name so if you oppose everything that we fundamentally stand for. I don't see how you can build a relationship there. I don't know why you'd want to be there
Doses Of Antibody Drugs Remain Unused As They Present Various Challenges
"The federal government says it has delivered more than 300,000 doses of monoclonal antibody drugs to help facilities nationwide. They're designed to treat patients with mild to moderate covert 19. The ideas keep those patients out of the hospital, but Many of those doses are sitting unused, due in no small part to the challenge of administering those drugs. NPR's science correspondent Richard Harris looks at to healthcare systems that have overcome those hurdles and are seeing hopeful results. Monoclonal antibodies present all sorts of challenges. They're given to people who have active infections, but who aren't hospitalized, so it's important to treat them without exposing other patients to risk. The drugs by Regeneron and Eli Lilly are also given by infusion, and that process takes a couple of hours. So when you add all this up, you know it's really a logistical challenge to deliver this therapy to a lot of people. But Dr Howard Long at Houston Methodist Hospital, says they figured out how to do that. They've opened clinics around Houston and doctors affiliated with the hospital are referring eligible patients. That is people who are over 65 or who have health conditions that put them at high risk. So at this point we're doing about 50 to 70 infusions a day, and patients are usually scheduled within a Relatively short period of time. So from the time they call into being infused, it's usually less than two days. The timing is important because these drugs appear to beam or effective early in the course of the disease. Mostly help people who aren't mounting their own strong immune reactions and, well medication sits unused in many locations around the country. That is not the case at his hospital, Hong says. Right now we're constrained more by the drug supply. They use it as fast as they get it. Any doctors nationwide aren't so enthusiastic about these drugs, though treatment guidelines issued by the National Institutes of Health say there's actually not good evidence to know whether they work. That's because the Food and Drug Administration relied on studies of just a few 100 patients to grant these drugs, emergency authorization. So these are very small numbers that under normal conditions nobody would never publish in the journal like New England Journal of Medicine. Yet this is, you know, kind of headline news. Welcome Toko bit time right. But doctors are gaining experience. Houston Methodist is now treated more than 1100 patients, Hong says. We're seeing results that are comparable to what was reported in the clinical trials by Eli Lilly and Regeneron about six or 7% of patients who are treated end up in the hospital or emergency room. He figures that without treatment about 15% of the most high risk patients could end up in the hospital or ER. Doctors affiliated with the Mayo Clinic or also encouraged by their experience. They've dust more than 2000 patients in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Arizona and Florida. Dr. Raymond reasonably has done a preliminary analysis of the 1st 1000 or so patients and finds low hospitalization rates. More importantly, there is some signal that is also reducing death. But again this our preliminary analysis we have to kind of make sure that this are all vetted by pure review. But this is what we're seeing. That's why we're happy. Unlike a clinical trial, this real world experience doesn't have a careful comparison group so doctors can't say for sure that these patients are faring better. Even so, these encouraging findings may be swaying doctors who weren't sure they wanted to refer their patients for treatment. There's nobody says patients are also becoming less skeptical. Initially, there were more declines than accept. But no, we're actually seeing more except than declines, and even though it takes a lot of person power to provide this treatment reasonably and Hong believe they're actually reducing the overall workload. Keeping patients out of the hospital. Richard Harris NPR
2020 Wrap Up: George Floyd
"Hey guys welcome back to say with me saying. This is zack brandon. Once again. say when he saying doing look back on our first season to see if our views change different over. The course of the year for this one will be george. Floyd already looking back at this. Another another tale of police brutality in america with the focus being a black man unarmed to put to death unfortunately this time of need to throw for eight minutes zach. Did you get to look at any information in regards to Just what happens with police officers of that situation. So i know the third degree murder charge was dropped and i think that's chauvin was allowed to live outside of minnesota. But as far as i know. I believe they're still awaiting trial on a echoes the same on. Cnn says it says a judge orders one trial four x cops charging jewish schwab killing keeping case in minneapolis. Derek chauvin towel foul thomas lane and j. They just have the Abbreviation he ruled that a holding a single proceeding for the four officers would ensure the jurist understand. All the evidence and the complete picture of george floyd is still underway within the rounds of the courts right but just looking back on it. What do you. what's your takeaways. I think it's twofold right. I think on the one hand. It was clearly awful and the video. Everyone watched the video or that that traveled across all of social media and all of the mainstream media and it was awful. I think that clearly it was handled horribly and the officers should be held accountable for it. I think it also revealed though the the country or at least a large portion of the country's willingness or i don't wanna say at least willingness to jump to racism as the as the cause right because clearly it was. It was awful. But i still think at this point. At least there isn't much hard evidence that shelving was doing it out of racist intent. And i think that was what sparked a lot of these movements and protests and riots and things because you know the belief was that it was white cop killed a black person because of ring racist intent and because of race so it to clearly i i stand with the people that are standing against xiaobin because he up clearly but yeah. I don't know do you. Do you have any takeaways before we cut this one. I mean listen. Do i think that they some very strong. Black man who was going against the direct orders of the police are even granted mental health component of it. That we get more. Eventually you have to address because there's not really a focus in the united states. But honestly i think and i feel safer to say. The jakab was an idiot. I'd rather see. The cop was an idiot. 'cause i can easily see a what a what gentleman who had mental issues. Put his hand. You know just imagine someone kane from wrestling doing all the stuff that i'd put my neck on came to me just because if i'm an idiot if i don't follow protocol really care about the idea of another human's life. I'm sure he would do the same thing for anyone. He was in fear of his own life with so you know whether whether it was a knee or he shot him. I feel he would've made the same decision and we will definitely have to do episode on cases of police brutality across the board and can shed some light on some of these other cases right because clearly while it does happen a lot to black individuals. Police brutality issue across the board. And it's something that really doesn't get talked about enough and we. We have to say what needs saying about those cases to

Since i was a little girl. I have wanted to visit the ice hotel in sweden. It was a long shot. But i figured it was a dream and nothing would come of it.

Learning camp in bemidji minnesota which. I went to every october to better my conversational and writing skills and the swedish language and found the stories fascinating. I asked them to tell me their tales again and again. The older women some of them actually swedes from sweden took liberties with their stories and change them up a bit just for the fun of it every time it was a new adventure one of the stories that might have been up. Made me giddy with excitement and marymount. It was based around christmas time and it seemed so cozy in real. Surely it must be true. I didn't ask though. I imagined myself as being sabine. She'd that was telling the story and having the is hotel experience. Imagine with me arriving from stockholm to the ice hotel and yucca. Crv right on the torn revolver. The torne river is where they get all the ice for the ice hotel. The many designers engineers architects artists and workers start building the hotel from scratch every year. A labor of love.

Playing jazz seasonal selections center to my right or was it to my left and i was greeted at the front reception with champagne and cloud berries something. I don't even think we have an america. The woman behind the ice desk gave me a reindeer skin blanket to put over my shoulders and walked me to an outdoor firepit only steps away on the outside of the building a roaring fire and wonderful ice chairs covered in some more reindeer blankets. My mind was blown away with excitement. What else would i experience. I had just started my four night adventure in this cold winter. Christmas wonderland soon enough. I was handed a mug of coffee with rum. And i knew this was where i wanted to call home forever. More adventurers came to sit by the firepit with the same wide. Eyed wonder and spirited excitement. I smiled but kept my eyes glued to the fire but all the visitors new that the ice and snow wouldn't last long as the ice hotel closed down in april before my trip was over i will have gone across the wilderness in snowshoes. Go on sleigh rides with reindeer. See the northern lights had met the saami people of lapland. I will have eaten swedish. Christmas cuisine and watched the saint lucia event. But for now time stood still as i glazed is over the fire and dreamed later i would be shown to the room. I selected my very own ice room with an actual ice table complete with a mini refrigerator and colored ice sculptures of christmas past and reindeer blankets covering my ice bed and an actual fireplace. I can watch while laying in bed. The time seemed like an endless christmas trip. But also that. If i didn't hurry i'd miss the whole thing in a blink of an eye. I grew sleepy and dreamed of a wonderful time. The one thing i knew was that this wouldn't be my last time here at the ice hotel for christmas yes there would be more visits and perhaps a chance to be a worker in making it all come together for the holiday season later that first night i was given cheese and blog a red wine with rum learning all new things about the swedish way of life hand was going to be a you fork experience for shore

This conversation was recorded may fourteenth two thousand twenty. Thanks so much for being with us today in recording this conversation. Let's. Get started by telling listeners a little bit about your connection with nominee, Minnesota and and your involvement tells more about that. Well I after experiencing a little Liz for about. Thirty five years I was looking to give back to make a difference to. Fight the stigma and I began looking for the right outlet. NAMI was by far the most inclusive, the most wide ranging it had programs were unprecedented. In Minnesota. United suppose nationwide, but I started at. In, your, own voice speaker, and shortly thereafter the speaker's Bureau and joined the Legislative Committee. I also was just so impressed with our executive director. Sue after holden that I N programs coercion the opportunities to make a difference. I was very excited to be a part of the nominee organization. Awesome and had you happen to I don't know if you've. Lived in other states, and had nominee exposure in other states, or is it all been in Minnesota? I have lived in Minnesota my entire life, okay? How did you end up trying CBT? Well actually a years ago. I was in a residential treatment a facility for Anorexia. And it I learned about T.. They had some worksheets, but it was. It was more of a class. It wasn't really. Practicing or implementing that therapy. Years later when I saw a very confident psychiatrist, who also access my therapist. did not. He knew I was very wary of therapy. So he did not actually. Say, that's try see bt, but in a very What would you cut subtle manner? He employed all of the. You know. He employed that sort of the models. Yeah, it's. Andy. Actually see bt without naming it if you will. That's something that have been curious about different people's People's different experiences like do they even know they're receiving that model of therapy, or is it just sort of happening behind the scenes? So That's interesting to hear. Yes. and was it was it focused on Anorexia was it focused on other specific. struggles that you wanNA share, or is it just general? We started with my. Struggle with the disease of Anorexia because at that time I. that's that's all I could think my mind. Twenty four seven was about food, weight shape and thought I was my disease. But, as we you know, and it actually took years for me to change my way of thinking and. You know identify situations be no wasn't given in touch with emotions or feelings so any again. Thinking as I said, but I also experience chronic major depression. And Panic and anxiety, disorder and PTSD. Again needs the same steps in CVT. Help those situations as well. How would you as a person receiving? The therapy. How would you describe it to someone else? Well, I would describe it as. Almost imperative to. Changing the way you think about certain situations that are traveling especially within a mental illness it is. For those who. I was delusional in my thinking. And, so I couldn't even reshape that inaccurate negative. Way, of thinking. And I would highly recommend as a find it. Evidence based, which is very important to me. evidence based care and it would be a big reason. Why would make that referral? At what point? Did you. Realize. The model therapy that that was being used to say it was sort of like behind the scenes being used. Did. When did you come to understand that it was more specifically see bt? Well it that's very good question because What I was introduced to exposure therapy I said you know you're. In a very late, hearted manner I. Said What what's your? What's your mode here? And he did mention cognitive behavioral therapy. And you know I tease him saying you really pulled on me. So. I was really into Authenticity. Let's figure this out by the those are the that's the steps that he did use CVT. So the exposure therapy was sort of down the road in the in within the therapy, and that's when he spoke Monroe CBT. Correctly. and am I correct that exposure therapy is a type of CVT. Has that right? Part of it. And that was it was it was it was part of? It is definitely a guy said after years of. because of the length of I disease. It took years for me to get to that point. Could you say a little bit more about that. In terms of were the obstacles along the way for you. To obstacles along the way was really identifying. My delusional thinking and my. I thought I couldn't. I was so my thoughts were instinctive. There was no. Here's a here's. Be here. See, what do you do about it? It was you know breaking through. Those The inaccurate thinking, even that even convincing me that I was having inaccurate thinking. And it often, we had to work on that work on that Intel I could identify. Any often used you know. What would you tell your friends? Would you ever talk like this to your friend? which was very helpful in reshaping may think he now. That's interesting. Yeah, yeah, and I think we're. We'd probably be nicer to our friends than we are ourselves sometimes. Oh definitely definitely. Like I said earlier it with because. ANOREXIA is.

"Actually just went to play yesterday Paranormal brothers. If you haven't gone to go go to. It's really bad. Yeah so what I'm hearing is that you know self care for you is breaking down to why what what makes you happy happy as opposed to like what's can as opposed to the narrative that's been share which is like pampering yourself and you know that right but I think a lot for are different people. It means different things for example for me it means how do I preserve myself right. How do I make sure that I'm able to put maximum output to my community Marie so that I can make an impact and be able to sustain myself as my former self care? I am for you. It's your former self care is being able to just be happy right and during what would you like to do in order to be happy being with people being with people and being with people I love. I've also found that you know not just you know just because you love someone does mean. They're healthy for you. You know Case in point family honestly Yeah so for me. It's like being being with people that I enjoy being with and Doing things that I enjoy doing lake. I there are lots of things I enjoy doing like going to movies. Movies going to plays You know hanging with friends going out to parties and stuff like that In doing that more you know but not doing it responsibly. Though because I do it there's a fine line you know Yeah I feel like you're also touching base thought the fine line between like. How do you socialize with people in in order to be in the community as opposed artery socialize people in order to distract yourself from your own? Yes right that's a very online to like to be. I want to thank you for like surfacing that because I think oftentimes you know we talked self care while like doing things. Thanks for yourself. But there's things that you do for yourself are healthy and there's things that you'd reach for yourself that may not necessarily be healthy and long terms and things you really like brought auto so other lasting that you want to share before we close out this episode for anyone who is thinking about were wondering about antidepressants.

"Your podcasts and now here's your host Nami Minnesota staff member Caroline ludi welcome to wellness and color. They give much for having me. Thank you our guest. Today is one thousand nine hundred a university student Salyan Bay and again so I thank you so much again for being here Just because before we go into our conversation demand for just introduce you know. I'll go ahead great. Thank you so growing up in South Korea and current aren't Minnesota Sayan Bay says relationship with mental health is both love and hate fear that others would think that she was quote crazy or quote ill. We're always initially present yet. She was never afraid to seek help and sought therapy with the support of her family. Ultimately changes incremental and her views towards mental health have been shaped by her time spent in the US plans to shift opinions of mental health. Not only within herself but also within her culture which drives her to constantly reflect on her Own Journey to knowing but flipping the status quo in order to de stigmatize mental health issues. So a couple of words form who are sponsor is these. He's efforts were supported by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences of the National Institutes of Health Award Number You L. Won t r zero zero zero two four nine four. The content is solely the responsibility of the author's isn't necessarily representative official views of the National Institutes of health. So so so in just a couple of questions here. Initially you tell me a little bit more about yourself. Yeah sure I grew up in South Korea. And it's a very competitive especially like stomach wise and I think got a lot of pressure from the society my family and myself and I think the biggest components that like Triggered me in like thinking about mental health in the first place was the dynamic pressure and the experience of me getting bullied by classmen when I was in school and like a bunch of other stuff having related to Self esteem and lacking love for myself. So I think that's like the initial reason awesome why I started to give up mental health and like I'm not healthy as in like my heart is not healthy and and I was like okay. I should get help because I don't think I can do this by myself. And then I was very lucky enough to like Have a family that I can talk to. And they're very supportive. When I brought up the concept of going going to counseling office or seeking their are free and yeah? That's when I started therapy. I was in sixth grade. I think and then I went to therapy for are two and a half years and then it became like a rotten wound that I couldn't not got got anymore so during tenth grade I went to my school counselor and I asked her like. Oh this these are the the things that I'm feeling at that time. It was kind of different. Because I wasn't experiencing bullying it was fine like a cadet wise but I was more of like. Where do I go with my life? Like what do I WANNA do. Is the school right for me because it went to a special high school foreign language high school. It's where are a lot of competitive students come to go to a very prestigious universities which is which makes the atmosphere even more competitive and Edison South Korea. Yes and it was like very I felt like I was out of place I feel like I was one of the students were like can devoting their lives to go into a great college. Because I wasn't and I didn't think like oh I'm like all right place I felt like I was in. I was taking someone else's place so like there's like someone who can do much better in this school and this environment where I'm just taking their resources into his taking their time and then I went to therapy for a couple of months. I think eight months or six six months and then like okay I I feel better now and I think my meaning in life is to like become a therapist vest myself and try to help people who go through the same thing. I went through so sorry the when did you come to arrive at that. Decision was after the show eight months of therapy that you thought AH therapist. I think it was like the first time that I went to therapist which was like in sixth grade. I was like okay like there's a person who you like helps people through their hardest times in life and I was like okay. That's really cool. Maybe I WANNA be comes therapist but then I was like okay. I Want Congress service but then I have to study a lot like what do I do. It was kind of like a vague idea in my head to become a therapist but then after I think in the process of that my second their therapy I was like okay. I'm sure that I WANNA do those like I'm so sure to this. So that's why I was like okay. I need need to become a therapist to become their pets. Need to study hard and I was like okay. Maybe this is the right school for me because will pressure me to study even harder so so I stayed there. And that's how I ended up in Minnesota and now majoring in psychology. So talking about just going back to when you were growing up you talked about the pressures but then as you were progressing in highschool those academic pressures kinda faded but then in terms for your mental health. How what challenges were present at now at that? Time I think there were a lot of a problems that I didn't address like my first therapy which was like underlying problems with like Relationships with family and how I view myself and what my values are and one of the things that I still struggle with is. How much do I value my parents? Perspectives of. How do I want to like? Meet their expectations of me. I think. Not to generalize. But that's that's like a lot of problems that I know like a lot of Asian cultured people go through because like you have to be respectful to your parents have to listen to what they're saying and I think for some reason I have like a very big pressure that I need to become like a good daughter. You're just a child that I would do whatever my parents want me to do like. I'm not a pushover. Well like I'll try my best to do that. And I learned that I didn't really have a very ideal relationship my family growing up so that was like like a very big part why I was trying to police my parents because they just want it to be accepted and love which I didn't feel as a child and I think after that my parents guide like had very long conversations about leave where we're going and that really helped with like getting to figure out what what I WANNA do in life rather than just thinking about what they want. Appreciate you sharing that because you know I guess the family dynamic in any culture you you know as always kind of so sensitive so fragile and now you're you know you're in your own words. What would you say you were at at that point when you did tell your parents you know this is how I feel but it seems the same time they were there to support you I always felt like I wouldn't be supported if I tell my family about like oh I think I am depressed or I like feel sake of my my head so I was really scared and I didn't tell them because I felt like they would take that. I'm like crazy quote ill so for the longest time I held how did but when I actually like had the courage to tell them something thing they were very supportive and I was amazed by and I think if I didn't have support of wouldn't have been the same with like along the process and everything 'cause like even though I know that it should not be like taboo to go see a counselor search. Seek help in my mind. I had that idea that counseling is for people who are like week or who were not normal normal quote which is not at all true but I just had that sick mutation in myself so if I didn't have like support from outside I wouldn't have been able to let myself think that I'm okay. Hey I seeking help and I'm okay for feelings and things that I was feeling so now now then how would you say your own cultural and racial identity infuses with the own understanding of your mental health challenges and now of course the journey they run. I'm one of the biggest things that I've learned here was people. Were very open about mental health issues. And I don't know if I was like in in a very prestigious or very fortunate group of people that I talked to but I was in a program where people were very considerate about helping other people and who liked to be like Go into medical fields in the future and I think generally just care about health and mental health is like a very big component in health general. Because I think mental as important as physical health and I was just amazed by how people are like. Yeah I have depression. And I'm I'm taking medication to help me get through it and there are so many people people who are actually dealing with their mental health not like trying to shut down and trying to have it and the cells AC- actually seeking help or talking talking about it. It was life changing for me because I know lake. It's changing rapidly in South Korea but still there are a a lot of topics that are voided when people are talking about mental health. So what came here and see just everyone talking about it freely. The and like they're happy about it. I was like okay. This is what she do and I just saw hope in like people's respectively they can change in South Korea. People are changing. I like how you said that you know your treatment on this as any other physical in this of course why we always say here at nahmias nominee as well because that is very true An you talk a little bit more Abo- The language of mental illness because you want to go into advertising as part in psychology background but so specifically now than in South Korea. How is the language of mental illness described versus? Now that you live here Minnesota Minnesota. You talked about here. It's much more open there. It's more taboo. Of course even closed off in the sense but it's it is there is a progression of understanding. But how does that differ as in like when someone says they're dealing with depression or anxiety which are like the one one of the most common illnesses that people go through people. Look at you like look at you with such sadness like they would just. I don't know it makes me feel like they're kind of feeling bad for are you but in like a looking down way so like all your. Your mental is so weak that you're actually going through something that's consider as an illness which is a for me is just kind of bizarre because I think everybody experienced a certain amount of mental illness in their life like nobody is happy. One hundred percent. Ah Time and when someone says they're experiencing a mental illness they look at you with someone like they. Just look at you in a different way so in that sense you you have the support of your parents and so then we're able to you start humanistic Castillon your own as well too. But so.

"Of i've differences in what people go through in general and for me i would say it was also weird to that coming to minnesota. I remember my first few years. I felt very outcasted and i went to go seek advice. Some people advised me to join the chinese cultural club and stuff and that was weird to me because although is perfectly great advice i i never had to seek out a chinese cultural club to feel accepted back at home but then i have to here so it's just it difficult for me to adjust to this place but i've also found great things about minnesota that i can never find in california and and i'm really grateful that i came here because i feel like i've learned about whole different perspective and a whole new side of our country that i can now use in my future when i'm helping my future clients because i know i'm going to be meeting people from all different walks of life and all different areas and it truly differs the culture shock is definitely real and i only hope that people will do more to try to connect and learn about each other's cultures rather than sticking their bubble because i noticed that kind of thing to hear i noticed kind of a bubble of just being being raised and born and raised in the midwest and you kind of just wanna stay here in the midwest. Don't really want to branch out. I noticed that within a lot of my friends here and the mindset in california's quite different so i really just hope that everyone is more accepting and willing to understand other cultures cultures more and in just you said talked a little bit more about <hes> <hes> to cultural makeup of minnesota and california would say for california really the family is a network but it's not you know the the central yeah. It's that's a good way to describe. <hes> versus minnesota is so how is that factored into your support of uh of your your mental illness. I'd not gonna lie when i first came here and started noticing these differences i had a lot of jealousy and and almost slight resentment that <hes> there's such a different type of lifestyle here and i feel like i almost felt like i grew up with the lack of love compared to a lot of the families here in a lot of the typical kohl way children here were raised <hes> and when i went back home over breaks and stuff and discuss this with my friends back in california. They also definitely noticed that difference in general. It's taught me that. I need to be more proactive myself in getting the help i need. I feel like the differences it plays a huge role but <hes> at the end of the day like we are given what we're born into. You can't change anything about that and <hes> seeing the differences princes at i was pretty hard for me and <hes> i took it pretty negatively but then i realized that there are from when you were in california to where you are now minnesota what has been the most than single influential support in your own mental illness journey <hes> i have always kept in touch with my therapist back home. Even though i have a new his here in minnesota <hes> i think that would be one big source of help because he's known me okay since my hospitalization days and so having someone that's been with me for that long <hes> is really helpful full while adjusting to a new place because he's able to give me help like through perspective that is not like a newcomer like therapist purpose here having to start all over again. It's it's pretty tedious. Link just developing that therapeutic relationship it takes time and i am since i already had one back in california. <hes> we agree to stay in touch through skype and i would say that that was something that's helped me a lot through transitioning xinning between the two states to talk about to now they were your perspective has kind of remained has remained constant because of the connection with therapist or has it changed my perspective on on your own understanding of your your mental illness. <hes> definitely i think changed <hes>. I think it's changing the biggest way <hes> through my idea of i always thought mental illness like i knew it was not curable like permanently but i always thought like you know after going to therapy. It should be almost pretty much gone but i think the biggest thing that i realized within these past few years is that it is not something that will ever leave my life. It's more of something that i just have to learn to cope with <hes> and once you learn how to cope with a it's it's totally possible to live a normal daily life with these disorders so i think that was the big shift going from a mindset of like wise this still prevalent in my life to more of i understand it's going to stay in my life and that's totally okay and there are ways to deal with the so so you said now that your mind ship has shifted <hes>. We don't talk about you know the family dynamic. <hes> in your father was with the accepting however just in terms of your cultural racial identity <hes> how is that you know put into perspective again your understanding of the <hes> your own mental health <hes> and just disappoint poor structures now that you have in place yeah definitely different <hes> <hes> i would say even just <hes> <hes> after time has passed and with years doing therapy. It's kind of just become more normalized within my family. Which is why. I think it's so important horton to start somewhere like to start treatment somewhere start talking about it somewhere because as time passes it will become less awkward and less stigmatized stigmatize and i think that's definitely what happened within my family <hes> for example to in terms of medication my first year after being diagnosed i i was suggested to take medications but my parents refused until a year and a half later. They realized i was not getting any better better and they thought okay. We have to try medication. At this point. I know so many people in the asian community that struggle with mental disorders orders but are not accepted by their families or not comfortable discussing it <hes> and i think the more we talk about it within our culture and the more other families realize like oh if your daughter also has this. My son isn't like he doesn't stand out that much then <hes> <hes> or it's not as unique absurd as i thought it was because it's truly not it's such a common thing we i. I think my parents it took them a lot to learn about mental health and and i would say i think that's one way that i feel happy to have been diagnosed. A sounds pretty weird saying in yet but i'm honestly.
"minnesota" Discussed on Mental Health In Minnesota
"Totally fine in and free and then after that they required apparent signature and i remember i brought the form home and my parents refused to sign it so i couldn't receive anymore accouncing after just one session and so that's where things started to kind of go downhill. <hes> i face is a lot of family difficulties. <hes> my family was pretty broken around a two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen <hes> my mother mother left us for about a year and a half so i lived my father and my brother for a while just us three <hes> it it was just a lot going on and <hes> a lot of abuse both physical and emotional and at the same time i was not allowed to get any sort of help <hes> and also in chinese culture there is a huge stigma on like saving face and like like making sure that there is no shame within the family. I'm sure we've all seen that within like milan or something but it's actually very real <hes> so my parents were very adamant about never ever speaking about these problems outside of our household <hes> which i know is it's pretty common in many cultural <hes> families <hes> and i did because i was in a very very bad place to the point where i wasn't allowed to cry at home because my mom saw that as a sign of weakness and just of not being a normal person which is obviously not true at all so i would often cry at school because i had nowhere else to release that pain pain and teachers started noticing and that's kind of how the whole process started of me realizing i do you need to get help and it took years to convince my parents but after years of battling through that <hes> it got ought to a really bad point where i was hospitalized and it was actually after the first time i came out of the hospital that is one my parents finally agreed to start some sort of treatment and so that's when i started <hes> psychotherapy for the first time so he said the counseling session the one in <hes> to place when you're in seventh grade and then after you know you hospitalization then you were able to receive treatment after your parents guests <hes> okay so how new year's thought what was there was about four years between <hes> because i was hospitalized the summer of my junior year of high school aw oh actually no. I'm sorry it was sophomore. Year of high school was about three years in between but since then i've been receiving therapy so since that <hes> i kind of support structure was in place after <hes> you. You said you were hospitalized. How did your parents react in the now. How were your how was your own mental health diagnoses now anyway i guess in terms of how was it being recognised. Yes and how did you feel yeah so my parents found out that i ended up in hospital from the hospital calling them. They didn't bring me. I know that's pretty common. Some parents bring their children to the hospital to keep them safe. I was found by the police after my first suicide attempt so they actually found out i was in the hospital little by coming to the hospital and seemingly there which i sure it was very difficult <hes>. They tried their best supportive. My dad tried very hard to be supportive. My mom kind of freaked out but <hes> which i know is pretty common for parents in-stat are noticing this in their children for the first time it's kind of like out of nowhere and they don't know how to deal with it. They don't know how to help their children but my dad starting from that day on he definitely changed a lot just his mentality and mindset towards towards mental health to he realized like this is something i need to take seriously now for my daughter's own wellbeing and life if anything <hes> so he was onboard pretty much after that my mom it took a a bit more time to convince but <hes> the hospitalization is truly the turning point and so actually when i first entered the hospital i was about fifteen i think sixteen and i was actually diagnosed with major depressive disorder and panic disorder so those reminder original diagnoses back then and those were definitely the disorders that i suffered with at that time i used to have panic attacks daily <hes> i had to stop school and become homeschool because i'd have panic attacks everyday in class so after i was diagnosed with that <hes> the hospital when you get released from there they also set you up with like a plan for the next steps. What are you gonna do now to keep yourself safe and so they kind of forced forced my parents to follow that plan pretty much and that's how i started getting professional help so the next few years were really tough if i i thought things would get better but if anything it definitely went the opposite route <hes> as i said mentioned before i had to leave school become home schooled i ended. I attended a outpatient program at a hospital nearby my home and every day from eight to three i went to the hospital and then at night i would come home and do school <hes> so it was very much not a typical high school school life but i think it was absolutely necessary for me to go through that treatment and go through all of that <hes> and and as the years have progressed <hes> i've gotten so much better with dealing with my panic disorder and they've lessened each year and now i only get one. Maybe once it's every three to three months compared to back then every day so definitely a lot of improvement and once i got to minnesota soda i had to find new treatment so i went into m._c._p. Minnesota center for psychology and i had intake assessment mitt and that's where they re diagnosed me because it has been a few years since i had been diagnosed and here in minnesota is where i received the diagnosis houses of borderline personality disorder p._t._s._d. Which is much more fitting to me now so i also learned that like mental disorders can shift in someone's life and your symptoms can change and honestly my depression has been a lot better i i. It's almost not even there anymore which i'm really thankful <hes> but it's definitely shifted towards different sort of issues that i've been dealing with so the treatment that you received in california now you're of course a student here in minnesota each currently going to <hes> m._c._p. Uh-huh ep can you describe had those two. How is the treatment differed at all yeah <hes>. It's definitely been different. <hes> i've struggle the law trying to transition and adopted minnesota <hes> i i think the biggest reason is because i grew up in such a diverse area coming here was very different. I also notice i mean and it's not there's no blame for anyone. It's not anyone's fault but just because i feel like there is less diversity here in minnesota. It's harder for most people to understand other cultural perspectives. I noticed that things that i wouldn't have to explain explaining california. I'd have to explain here and that became and it became hard to when people do not understand me in the way i was used to being understood and but i do notice that people are very willing to learn and i think that's why it's important and for minorities to speak up and talk about how they feel because it's not that people of caucasian people are not willing to learn. They are it's. It's it's just because for me. I never had to think about these things growing up because i was just naturally exposed. It was just a part of my everyday life. I didn't have to go out of my way to learn about other cultures. It was just around me all the time so coming here. It was extremely difficult. I definitely felt outcasted pasta often even within treatment. I'd say i tend to therapy group and i noticed that things that people talked about in group. I no longer could relate to <hes>. I feel like over here. Family is a lot more. There's a lot of importance in family here and i think i really admire that and that's something that i've always wanted in my life. So i just notice there are different types of issues that people go through between these two states in minnesota family. Structures are quite prevalent and well set. I feel like people here have pretty strong family structures. That's actually not something that i saw common in california so it was almost weird for me to come here and see my friends like being so close to their parents because in california that's actually not common a lot of times. <hes> and i think it has to do with in white families. They really value like being a tight knit family <hes> and in other cultures. It's a little bit more separate. <hes> it's more about focusing on successor yourself in a way <hes> but i just noticed.

"To help you get better. Thank you for that Kim, you just speak briefly about the design of the device shore. Yeah, we saw the bracelet. If you look on our website, it looks very much just like a an activity tracker. And we we did design this purposefully because you know, I hit it for twenty years. We want to make sure that it's on your terms when you share about your behavior. So we designed it to be discreet and to blend in, but the beauty is that we're seeing more and more people, you know, just as we're talking about mental health today. More and more people talking about mental health more and more people talking about specifically hair pulling disorder skin picking nail biting, and you know, sometimes just leveraging the bracelet as a way to to say to a friend. Oh, you know, it's it's because I have this disorder, and it's helping me take control of it. And just it's been really exciting. When people come back to us and say, oh, I told a friend. They thought it was cool. You know, like the reaction like we're so afraid of what other people think sometimes? And and that's why we hold it back. And that's why we hide it. But sometimes I think we have to recognize it. Everyone's afraid of what of everyone else is thinking about them, like even when I'm sitting in a meeting, and I'm pulling my hair, and I'm thinking, oh are they looking at me. Are they seeing me? The reality is they're also sitting there thinking is my hair. Okay. Is my you know, my notes, right like whatever like everyone's so in their own minds. So hopefully, this helps you build awareness of where your hands are. So you can take control you can hopefully then have enough confidence in yourself to start sharing your own story and releasing the baggage because like I said that baggage just feeds itself and that's our goal. Our goal is really to help people learn to love themselves. Caroline noticed that I end all of my emails with love strength awareness. Love yourself. Be shrug enough to go after what you want and to be aware enough of what's happening around you. So that you can make the right choices. Thank you so much fearing an I agree with that too. Is so important that you know, we he said before big h other up by as while we recognize that everybody is dealing with. No, their own internal strife, so it's appreciated. Yeah. Shared your story.

Thank you. Caroline. Good morning. Thank you so much for being here with us today. Yeah. Good morning. I just wanted to ask you just to get the ball rolling. What does healthy mean to you for me healthy is a balance in your life, which is I know pretty hard to achieve these days. But definitely something when you feel mentally Haley physically healthy and spiritually healthy too. And it's a state where you are happy. And you think that you have control over some of the things that you want to do you can organize your life. And lead a life that you want to sometimes it won't happen. But at least, you know, that you have tried and you don't feel bad about it. And you keep on going. Okay. Thank you for that. And you talked about maintaining this kind of balance in terms of being healthy. How do you go about that? Yeah. Like you said it's not an easy task because every day. There are circumstances that you may not have foreseen. There are things that may happen. Sometimes it's your own physical health that might come in between. Sometimes it's your state of mind, your mental health that might interfere to maintain that balance physically you're should be in a good health. So that is the first thing to do. I would say, but at the same time, you should also pay mentally healthy. You should have. Good state of mind about yourself. You should value yourself, which is pretty important. And when you will you yourself, you know, what you want from your life, and you can make an effort to achieve that. So to maintain that balance. It's really important to know your own self to know, what you want and how you can achieve and once you make an effort towards that side, you know, you can achieve it and you'll make an effort and you'll definitely go towards that. Even if you feel sometimes you would keep on moving because that's your dream. So once you have a dream, you'll definitely move towards that and to maintain that balance. It's more like to take control of your health physically and also to work on your mental health at the same time. And I will also add that spritual health is equally important as far as I'm concerned because once you have. Faith. It helps you and it also helps in your mental state of mind because then you are not afraid of the coming circumstances that you feel that you can do what you want to do. They white beat events. There might be things that might be coming into your way. But definitely you'll keep on

"Welcome to mental health in Minnesota produced by NAMI, Minnesota. The National Alliance on mental illness, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and adults with mental illnesses and their families. Visit NAMI Minnesota online at NAMI M N dot org. Hi, this is Brian Jones with NAMI Minnesota. Here is a short episode with k king nominee, Minnesota staff member discussing programming related to exile in older adults you can contact Kate king via Email at K king at NAMI M, N dot org. So it's her first initial k and then K I N G at NAMI M N dot org or call the office said six five one six four five two nine four eight. Here's K welcome. I'm k- king the older adults program coordinator and community educator for adult programming at NAMI, Minnesota the national lions on mental illness, I have a series of five programs under the umbrella of gray matters. And today, I'm just gonna briefly tell you about one of those five programs what you need to know about aging and anxiety. And this program is particularly it is an hour and a half program. If you take the programmer, if you have the presentation scheduled at your nonprofit, or at your church or at your workplace, and it's an hour and a half. But today, I'm just going to highlight some of the parts of this particular program. I'm exiled disorders is the most common of the mental illnesses. It's three times more common than major depression. But it also has high correlation between having Zaidi disorders and also living with major depression, the correlations about fifty percent. So we're going to talk them about exile symptoms risk factors in older adults in this presentation. You learn some different types of anxiety disorders, you also learn a little bit about treatment management and recovery. Little bit of discussion about suicide, although I hope you'll. Consider taking some of the suicide prevention classes that we offer at NAMI Minnesota a good one, for example to take would be a one and a half hour class called Q PR question persuade refer. It's a gatekeeper class that's taught nationwide, and it's really helpful to learn the basics about suicide prevention, I'm and then also in our anxiety on older adults learn about resources to support older adults set live with anxiety disorder and anxiety disorder. I'm really has an early onset. Actually, the average age of onset is eleven so half the people who are going to develop any signs and symptoms of anxiety disorder in their lifetime develop them by age eleven and then the other half is after h eleven so that's really what brings down, you know, the mental health figures too early age onset, anxiety, really contributes to having that be such a low age on the statistic is at age fourteen fifty percent of people who are going to have signs and symptoms of any mental. Health issue in their lifetime will have those by age fourteen by twenty four if you're going to have any signs of symptoms anytime in your lifetime of an end mental illness, you'll have those by age twenty four and so the exiled disorder average of eleven really does bring down those figures. Now, can you developing Sidey disorders as an older adult for the first time? Sure. But it's not as common someone who perhaps has developed some signs and symptoms earlier. But the beauty of getting older, and there's a beauty to that beauty getting older is that you learn to manage a life managing illness. So, you know, you raise your kids you work. I'm you go to post secondary school. You keep learning. You have a vacation home you live life. And so I'm excited disorders can be mild. They can be moderate they can be really severe and like all illnesses there really are ebbs and flows to mental illnesses. It's really rare for people to be symptomatic all the time. But the same thing is true with other. Illnesses. You know, if you have multiple sclerosis MS, you typically are not symptomatic at a high level all the time you have ebbs and flows to it. If you have lupus you have ebbs and flows to it the Parkinson's disease you have ebbs and flows to it. Well, the same thing is true with the mental illnesses so with anxiety disorders. It's really I will anxiety is natural. It's something that everyone experiences. I would have to say that my experiences at the greatest fear few asked our general population with their greatest fear is they probably say public speaking. And for someone like me, not a problem. But the majority of US citizens don't like doing public speaking does that mean you live with an anxiety disorder? Absolutely not that is normal fear anxiety are essential for our survival. You know, it's built into our DNA. If we see a bear on the superior hiking trail, I think we're gonna turn around and run his fast as we can away from that bear. And we're going to have the palpitation. Heart, and we're going to have the tingling in the sweating and all those sorts of things does that mean that you live with an anxiety disorder? No means that you're normal. So executive though again, if it's over an extended period of time, and it affects your -bility to do your skills of daily living. You know, then it's time perhaps to get into see a doctor and with older adults are with people of any age. It's really important to get in for just a good workup because so many other things in life can look like a mental illness. So, you know, their medications that have anxiety a side effect. So you could be taking medication for something else. And all of a sudden you develop some some things that look like anxiety disorder. You could also have something happen in your life. It could be something traumatic that could happen, and perhaps that triggers what looks like anxiety disorder, but it's really good to have things checked out. So you go to your general practitioner. And then of course, if they suspect that it might be something related to anxiety disorder. Hopefully, then they're going to give you a referral to a mental health professional, and that mental health professional might be, you know, psychiatrist psychologist, it might be a licensed marriage and family counselor. It might be. You know, any or all of those those folks, but it is important that general doctors and nurse practitioners practitioners. Learn a little bit about the mental illnesses because I think that's where most of us start. And that's a good place to start because it's not always mental almost that. We're seeing could be something else. So, you know, going back to my point about you know, that fight or flight that's built into our DNA that doesn't mean you live with a majoring Zaidi disorder. So what makes a diagnosis usually occur is at your reporting your signs and symptoms. And if those symptoms are persistent, if they're excessive if they're life altering, you know, that's when a doctor or the first health professional you see perhaps makes a referral. So what about aging, you know, makes us anxious? Well, there's lots of things I'm a death of spouse's death of friends. What happens is that? We tend to have people our own age as our friends we tend to marry tip. People that are close to us in age. So that means that you're gonna have a fair amount of deaths at the same time. Lots of good friends may die because average age of life expectancy in Minnesota's eighty one. Also, you might be dealing with an illness or a medical condition as you age, you might hear that you have dementia. You might hear that you have macular degeneration losing the center vision of your I I'm your more isolated typically because perhaps you're retired. You don't have something that you do every day for eight hours a day. Like go to work you could have some hearing or vision loss that's pretty common as we age. We could have changing financial resources. You know, I think most of us thought we'd never lived to be our eighties. So we've saved but we haven't been able to save enough. Am I going to have enough money to last until I'm eighty five or ninety or I'm a hundred we also can have a change in physical independence. It could be because of disabilities. But it also could be maybe that we're not driving anymore. And consequently when you live. In greater Minnesota. And there's not public transportation readily available. You can become pretty isolated fact we live in Minnesota where our weather's not always the greatest in the winter, we have ice, and we have snow you could be quite isolated in your single family home because of the weather then also just leaving the home of many years and having to make a transition as we get older some of us end up moving closer to relatives. So we might move across country to be by our kids or we might move from four bedroom. Home of many years where we raised our kids and now move into a high rise one bedroom apartment, and so it's not so much that older adults don't flex with the change. It's that those are a lot of losses in snot just the loss of the physical structure of your house. It's the loss of the neighborhood kids next door. It's a loss of the church. That's just a mile away where you've gone for a long time. You'll find another church you'll meet other people. It's. It's just gets harder as you're older. And it's just a lot of changes at one time. So I'm not gonna talk about signs and symptoms now. 'cause that's why we'd like you to tend the the hour and a half class. But I do you just need to mention that we sometimes overlook late lights symptoms as we don't do it. Maybe this much with young kids or as much with twenty year olds and thirty year olds. But you know, an older adult may not want to share some things that they're experiencing because their fears that their family will see them as incompetent or perhaps a family will say gosh, if you're experiencing this you can't live alone anymore. So by divulging that kind of information, you know, they're fearful that, you know, their kids may cause some change to occur like a move or that their kids are going to see them as not able to be independent anymore. The other thing is that you know, the greatest generation those folks that are from that World War Two era, don't openly talk so much about mental illness. They really believe that they should be able to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps. That's true for all ages. But you particularly get it with the greatest generation, they may view, you know, mental illness or anxiety as evidence of a moral failure. Maybe they didn't pray enough. Maybe it's a physical weakness that they don't think they have or they don't wanna own up to there's so much stigma about mental illness that they may feel shame about it. The fact that they might have an emotional problem. So there really are a lot of resources for people that are struggling with anxiety disorder, and there are some older adults specific resources. So you know, that we have some direct service providers in Minnesota that work directly with the older adult population. And so one chance when you hear presentation on older adults name Sidey is elaborately. Get some tangible places that older adults can get some help for anxiety disorders, perhaps major depression and some other mental health issues that may develop. So you can go to our NAMI website now Minnesota you can put that into a search engine or you can go to NAMI M N dot org. You also can make arrangements for a presentation with NAMI Minnesota. And you can also do that by filling out a request for presentation form on our website.

"Substance use issues, we can get at that. The other thing is that, you know, as you age, you know, you develop many disorders, and so I think that makes it hard to see one practitioner who understands all of the parts of aging person. We don't have enough geriatricians which are people who've had internships and residencies in older adults specific we have very limited geriatric psychiatrists. You know, a psychiatrist already has an internship in a residency in psychiatry, and then they would have an additional residency or internship injury attracts, and so you know, as you get older with your mental illness. Ideally. You be seeing geriatric psychiatrist. But you know, we have so few of them. The other thing is that, you know, we do have resources not as many as we'd like, but there is an older adult version of mental health first-aid. It's an eight hour class that can be taken by people who work with older adults an older adult themselves can certainly take class volunteers at work with older adults can take the eight hour class. Also, NAMI offers a series of classes in general called gray matters of which the substance use disorder classes part of there. Also are geriatric inpatient units in Minnesota. And so again, if someone has acute symptoms, they can go mental health issues. They can go to geriatric impatient unit where they will have people that understand the aging body, you know, as well as mental health issues for substance use disorders, you know, much of the treatment for older adults is done is day treatment or is done as outpatient treatment. There really is only. One impatient. Specific for seniors. And that's Florida. However, there are impatient. Treatment programs for substance use disorder that have all adult ages and soldier adults would be mixed in a in a impatient. Setting with eighteen and older. There are a couple of programs in the twin cities though that do very specifically work on an outpatient basis with older adults that are struggling with substance use disorder. And so, you know, we'll talk about those if you take the class. So I encourage those folks that are managing a substance use disorder. They may have been managing it for many years in may increase, you know, as they are now older in the same token, it may actually improve as people get older, but it is never too never too late to get help for a mental health issue a substance use disorder. No matter what your age. So if you want more information, you know, about the gray matter series at NAMI, Minnesota, you would go to our. Now, knee Minnesota website and there you'll find the information under our older adults section. Visit NAMI Minnesota online at NAMI M N dot org.
"minnesota" Discussed on Mental Health In Minnesota
"Improper use or overuse of these substances. And then talk about some age related changes that can elevate an older adults sensitivity to their facts. And we're gonna learn about, you know, co-occuring disorders, meaning a mental health condition co-occuring with a substance use disorder, and then again, some older adult resources in Minnesota that people can tap if they're concerned about a family member or concerned about themselves or a friend another program and the final program in the five part series. I have under gray matters is understanding bipolar disorder schizophrenia, and borderline personality disorder in older adults and that's a two hour program. We'll talk about risk factors and the warning signs of those three disorders again, BI polar disorder schizophrenia, and borderline personality disorder in older. Adults participants in the class will learn about treatment management recovery. Learn some strategies for working with someone who has these acute symptoms or maybe they have emerging symptoms and learn about suicide prevention and other resources that are specific told her adults. Now, those are the five programs that are under the gray matter series. In addition, there's a national course called mental health first aid. It's taught nationwide in every state. They're in different versions of that mental health first aid class. It's actually an eight hour certification class, and I've taught adult mental health for stayed for many years. But there is. An older adult version of mental health first-aid it uses some of the same core course material from mental health first-aid for adults, but the examples and the work groups and the statistics and things are related to older adults. So that class a suitable for senior workers, I'll give you some examples people that could take older adult mental health first aid could be working in nursing homes. They could be people that work in assisted living. They could be people that work in senior housing, independent housing. Maybe it's housing services. That's fifty five. Plus, they could be people that are volunteers with churches. Sometimes they're bef- render programs at churches that of gear their outreach to older adults. It could be oral care staff. You know, were they have folks that their synagogue and mosque and church that are older adults, and it could be part of their visitation program. It could be people that are meals on wheels. Volunteers, you know, not all meals on wheels are delivered two. Older adults, but the majority are so be volunteers at work in a meals on wheels program, it could be people that work in a senior center. You know, some of the cities and counties have senior centers it could be staff that works in a social security office. Where many of the people that are coming to that office are there to sign up for benefits and things like that? It could be people that work in a health clinic. Again, if the clinic has a large population of seniors as their patients, you know, it could be someone who works at the front desk. So just a wide range of people that are senior workers. So that's the audience for older adult mental health first aid. Is it NAMI Minnesota online at NAMI M N dot org.

This short episode was recorded in July two thousand eighteen with NAMI, Minnesota staff member k king discussing briefly an overview of the older adults programming offered by NAMI Minnesota. There will be two other episodes coming up soon. Also short one about substance abuse in older adults and another about anxiety and older adults and those will both be with cake king also an entire about the related programming. You can contact K king either via Email that k king at NAMI N dot org. So it's just the letter K and then K I N G at Phnom EM in dot org or call the office six five one six four five two nine four eight. Here is K. Hi, this is Kay king and the older adults program coordinator and community educator for NAMI. Minnesota my background with Nahmias I've been with NAMI for nine years. I previously managed a large retirement community with independent and assisted living and also managed a home healthcare agency at NAMI, besides I'm doing programming for professionals on topics that relate to older adults and mental illness. I also do adult education I have a series for professionals that work with older adults. Sometimes we call folks senior workers that has five programs that fall under a category called gray matters the first in the series of gray matters is understanding depression in older adults and it's about one and a half hour program again for professionals it suitable also for older adults themselves, and it's also. Suitable for family members of an older adult, but primarily written for professionals, and you know, feelings of sadness loneliness and grief, they're really normal. However, when the sadnesses intense if it's felt for a long period of time their fears with our ability to get along with others or to carry out, the activities of everyday life. Then it could be depression. So in my presentation, we talk about risk factors for depression warning signs, some stigma treatment recovery and some resources for depression in older adults and suicide prevention resources are also discussed although we also at NAMI, Minnesota have a wide range of suicide prevention classes, depression is not a normal part of aging. A second part of the gray matter series is understanding anxiety and older adults. And that's also a one and a half hour program. And we talk about anxiety. Orders and older adults. You know, it's primarily a disorder that starts young the average age of onset, Franks -iety disorders is eleven and so typically older adults may manage it throughout their lives. So again, learn symptoms and risk factors of anxiety disorders of which there are quite a few different types of anxiety disorders, which is one of the things that you learn also treatment management recovery, and then again resources specific to supporting older adults at live with anxiety the third program in the series. And these are not successful though. I do suggest that the depression one be the first in the series. If you're going to have someone from NAMI, speak more than one time. We also have a program that's called mental illnesses co-occuring with dementia, and that's about a two and a half hour program. And I do that with an educator from the Alzheimer's Association, we do jointly, and I want you to know that, unfortunately, those people that have severe mental. On this is not mild not moderate, but I'm really severe are at much greater risk as they age of developing dementia than the general population. So together, an also Alzheimer's Association educator and myself, we together talk about those as co occurring disorders. Another program under the umbrella of gray matters is understanding substance use disorder in older adults and quite frankly, substance use disorder. Also is sometimes something that you age with. And you know, we're gonna talk a little bit about the abuse of alcohol abuse of prescription drugs and the abuse of street drugs among older adults. And unfortunately, it's one of the fastest growing health problems in the US, we're going to talk about, you know, the negative consequences of the improper

Thanks for listening again to the podcast in joy this episode. Gonna shift gears here a little bit. So I would like to introduce Arvin from the meditation center as so he's going to be talking to us a little bit today about meditation. So give him a big round. We'll pause. How's everybody doing? Terrible. Hopefully, you'll feel better that was a great conversation. And thank you, Dr grant. Grant. Yes, I learned a lot as well. And it was very educating. So we'll continue the the process of learning. I'm an engineer, by the way, I'm not a doctor, and I have a history of mental health then concerns in my own family. And so I felt very connected to this mission off NAMI. So thank you for giving me the opportunity and recently, my son who's a teenager is seventeen year old he organized, a mental health symposium to school high school. And that was a even I was myself like could you do it? And he said, yeah, I'm doing it. So that he waited a couple of senators and he invited the professor from the university. And I was it was very hard to see that the young kids of today, they can do so much. They already thinking about what I never thought it, and he's h so, and that's how I met NAMI the organization. And I came to know about them talked to wonderfully about the mental health and everyone of us needs to be healthy physically mentally emotionally in. Also, I'm going to talk a little bit spiritually. So mindfulness meditation is is very very powerful tool to be completely healthy to be to be completed holistically healthy Jonah, just physically mentally, and what can meditation do I think many of you already probably meditate selected? No. But before I do that. Let me tell you a small story about how meditation is impacting what makes me do this. Because you must be wondering. If you're an engineer, why are you teaching meditation, and I've been practicing meditation for last fifteen years, and before that I had no idea what this is in whether exist or what is do. I knew that some people like to close their eyes and set for a few minutes or hours, and I had no idea what why they do it. But but then they came to know about it. I'm fascinated that such a such a great tool exist out there for all of us to practice. So how it impacted Cerise? Bentley me, and my wife, she is she teaches meditation to children, and we go to this shelter home. There's a big shelter homegirl like bunch of families. Stay and she teaches two children and one of the moms came to her just yesterday and said, Hugh don't know how much difference you're making our life. And she said my daughter who's who's probably ten or eleven year old is is suffering from severe depression. And she was worried about her daughter and her daughter quietly started coming to meditation in the shelter, and then all of us and the doctor commented what happened to her? She's all of a sudden looks happy. She's getting better. What are you doing differently says the only thing I remember doing is she is going to this meditation class, and she really likes to go there and enjoys it. I don't know what that is. And so in doctor, you should find out, and maybe even you go and find out what's what's happening to the daughter. So she came to the class yesterday, and she was a Mesa. She wanted to meet my my wife. And she said thank you for providing meditation to my daughter. It has made a whole lot of difference to her. So and we do this free because we we have armed profession edition teaching is not our profession, but we have been benefitted tremendously is transforming. So we thought we share as much as we can. That's all I go to laboratories reestablishing last ten fifteen years meditation center. Now, we got about hundreds of people come I reworked meditate, the center free, no charge. And we were able to do that. Because some people who are benefited where able to contribute enough to to make this running, but we provide free of charge to everyone. So I'm here to tell you what is meditation and people have different understanding of meditation and holiday, do it. Do I have to say or do I have to stand on Cedeno beach and a certain posture and really one of the benefits I'm here to deal. Defy some of the the technique, and we'll actually practice at how that okay, we'll practice meditation. So you go home some practice done. So before I go into the details. I also want to tell you one more thing is that I come from a science background. So the meditation can be seen as mobile as practice for health holistic hell for focus for the benefits for the for the mind for the emotions, and it's also can be practiced. Religiously some people practice as part of the religion. And I'm here only to cover the science aspect of it. I'm not here to cover the religion or fate. Although I welcome you to explore that in your own own ways and found mazing that meditation has been practiced by pretty much every religion. So it is a universal. So universal tool. It's not like only east. I know that some of some people think, oh, it must be Buddhist people meditate, but that's not true. Thank you look into the history of mankind. Meditation has been there throughout the war is just that it prospered on one place more than the others. Okay. So let's let's go to the bottom question. How many people here already? Actes meditation want two three four five six seven about half the class already practiced. But addition commercialisation straight now, how many people this is the first time, you're meditating. One two three. Okay. So that's kind of ratio. I see they're they're more and more people are aware what meditation as you may not have been practicing. Some people have heard about it might have been tried a couple times. And this will be a good introduction. To those your first time you're in for a ride putting grind? So. All right. So first thing we need to do is everybody. Okay. Be ready for the next light. Relax. Why are you relax because it's all learning in a relaxed way. This is a way to relax ourselves to relax in the sense of not just physically take a deep breath. Just let go of any pressure, or what am I going to learn gonna learn is going to be useful? Don't worry just enjoy the conversation, and whatever comes to your mind, you'll filter ask anytime, we'll hope that when you walk out of this room. You have learned something on a mcelwee. And when you relax your ability. Learn is higher true. Except for Dr grant, I'm just saying because he has to remember memorize those pharmacy names. I can't even remember my own for medicine. I don't know how you remember all of them. So well, but meditation does improve your memory. So we'll talk about that. Okay. So how many people have to list? Many of you have to list while we just talked about one to list medication, and that's an important one. What we have thousands of other things right along to the list.

"Amazing. What would you say it is meant free personally been involved with the work of NAMI? Can you ask such in depth question? What does it matter to me? Personally, it how many different ways could you answer? How many different ways it has just? Gave me like I said, it gave me hope gave me an it was like an anchor when I felt like I was. Adrift? It helped me stay. I guess it just helped me stay period and not just give up and it. It helped me put one foot in front of the other take one day at a time realize there is always steps forward. Try not anticipate be too afraid of the steps back it so. That's what it helped me. Do. It just helped me to stay into not completely fall apart. And it helped me I think. To always be there for him. You know, no matter what. And, you know, even when there was a time not a year or so to after he had been diagnosed, and he he was his behavior was was ruining our family just just ruining it. And so finally, my husband, and I said you have three months either get your act together or get out. Because you're taking the rest of us stone with you. And that can't happen. You know, we will never not love you. We will never not be here for you. But you can't live here. If you don't get your act somehow together, you know, or at least start. And. He didn't. And so he did have to leave. And there were times. I didn't know where he was not a lot. I mean, we never lost complete touch. But as he started to heal. He would look back on that. And said that was probably the best thing you could have done not to to just say, you know. Yes. I know you have a problem. And I love you in all always speak here for you. But no, you can't take us down with you. That's just. So I think it gave me the ability to help me find the strength to do that. And to always always be there for him. Because there is a hopeless hope, and it wasn't his fault. I mean, it wasn't like he was he didn't like it either. Right. Right. Right. Yeah. Yeah. So I thank you for coming in.

"Welcome to mental health and Minnesota produced by NAMI, Minnesota, the national lights mental illness, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and adults with mental illnesses and their families. Visit NAMI Minnesota online at NAMI helps dot org. Thanks for listening. Everybody. This is Brian Jones to be your host for this episode. We have a longtime, NAMI volunteer and supporter sandy with us recording. We're gonna hear Sandy's personal journey with with NAMI. And this is this is another story to help celebrate NAMI Minnesota's fortieth anniversary sandy can we get started by sharing what brought you to NAMI? What brought me to NAMI was a. Was fear. I think actually I. It's been a couple of decades ago. My son was a senior in high school. He had been having some issues where he wasn't. Orcas behavior was unusual. But I have to say I think I'm the Queen of being able to bury my head in the sand and deny what I saw and passed it off to the fact that our family was going through a rough patch, and you know, that can be that bad because we were all seen a therapist to kind of work through this rough patch. However when during the spring early spring of his senior year in high school, he had a complete psychotic break. And there was just no. Even I couldn't deny that something was drastically wrong. He was hospitalized. And didn't I can't remember the details of those those years that he was so sick. I call the dark years, and, you know, thank goodness. They are now light years, which is something. I will I can get to in a in a bit. But the the dark years when he was so terribly sick. We're we're just so frightening for me. I just. It's not like I didn't know about mental illness because I'm a registered nurse. I I know some but after say when I was in nursing school. Which of course was eighteen years twenty years before he got sick. I didn't like my mental health rotation. It just kinda. It's scared me. It made me sad. It twist like we really don't have much treatment here. How long was that rotation three months, and we were at a state hospital? And this was now back in the late sixties? Let different a whole lot different. Just a whole lot of it. And it shows. It was it was really a hard rotation for me for whatever reason. And one thing I really didn't like so what's the one crisis health crisis in my life. You know, if it's if a health crisis is going to hit your family when it hits your child. It's devastating. It's just so I think fear brought me to NAMI fear and. I was so afraid of losing him. And I felt like I did lose him. So how did you actually hear them? I can't remember is that the oddest I get that. I I have an idea of how I was introduced to NAMI. But I'm not confident that it's it was like, I don't know. Exactly who told me. I I think what happened was when we were visiting him in the hospital. I must have seen something some wear that. Because I'd never heard an army never heard of it. And they offered what they now. Call family family, right? And they at the time it was called journey of hope. And I I like that myself, and we had greeted Lancaster that remember which guest we had on the episode. That was talking a lot about journey of hope when it was called that. When you know and for listeners right now, we're talking about journey of hope becoming family to family, and that's the class that is pure led by two family members. And it's so the whole classes people who have loved ones with mental illnesses twelve weeks. And it's phenomenal. It is it. So it's one of it's a class that NAMI Minnesota offers family. I I can't there just aren't words for how helpful that was for me because I felt so alone. You know, I felt like nobody had I didn't know anybody who ever gone through this, and it's different from physical illness. When people know that someone you love and care about especially when it's your child has a significant mental illness. It's different, you know, did you so for your family member living with a mental illness after you took family to family who is there a difference in how you interact with your loved one. I you know, I can't really say that with any certainty, but there was a difference in how I perceived. What was happening to us? I had perceived it as hopeless. You know, he he was lost to us and. In. I just I had such a terrible time coping with it. And I didn't really feel like I hit anybody. I could talk to that would get it. Sure would really get it until we found the journey of hope and that was just a. A lifesaver too. I've heard sue Hansen describe it as she felt like arms were just in folding her when she was at that class. And and I just felt like you know, I was offered to. A new chance or something. You know that all was not lost. There is always always hope. Yeah. My parents went through the family to family class because I live with a mental on this end. And it was amazing for them. And and I can remember them telling me that one of the last classes where person came in and told their personal recovery story that that that's that was the first time they thought things might be okay. For me, you know, hearing that. And I'm trying to look up that episode that that were it was really disgust about journey of hope and famine of family try to find that. We'll keep talking. Okay. So.
