"That teens are heavily influenced by their peers will come as no surprise to any parents listening or to anyone who's been a teen for that matter. Typically it's just a bumpy phase. We all move through. But there are instances where this vulnerability to peer influence can lead to serious even tragic consequences. I'm talking about something called suicide contagion. It's a rare phenomenon but it does impact young people in particular. We know. Young people are much more. Susceptible to imitative behavior than adults. Simply because data that personality is still being formed their brain development is still occurring. Their executive functioning isn't necessarily quite as good as adults so they might not have the repertoire problem solving skills that we have as adults Joe Robinson is the head of suicide prevention at origin. The Youth Mental Health Organization based in Melbourne thankfully suicides generally are relatively rare in the population and suicide. Clusters are even more rare. What we found in a study that we did a few years ago is that we looked at suicide. Clusters over it was kind of a three year period and what we found was the were about five or six suicide clusters of young people over that given period across Australia So suicide clustering really accounted for just over five percent of youth suicides so they're relatively rare but they do cause significant distress understandably to communities when they do occur but they are more common in young people than they are in adult so we definitely found that youth suicides are twice as likely to occur as part of a cluster that adults suicides one. Australian case you may have heard about unfolded in the Victorian communities of Casey and Cardini in two thousand eleven and two thousand twelve. The Community is confronting the Stock Reality of suicide in their midst. The suicide of the US twelve young people died by suicide over that period. The SHOCKING DILEMMA OF YOUTH SUICIDE VICTORIAN CORNER DEEMED. It a suicide cluster. Here's how Joe. Describes THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SUICIDE. Cluster and suicide contagion. Cluster is when we see a number of suicides or as I say a greater number of suicides occurring than we might commonly expect in a particular area will community. When we talk about contagion. We're really thinking that's the mechanism by which cluster Marshall Parades. That one person's behavior is encouraging another person to behave in the same way. After the deaths in Casey Kardinia the Youth Mental Health Foundation head space set up a program to reduce the risk of suicide contagion in schools. It's cold head space school support and Rupert. Saunders worked on it for about a year and a half. He's now a senior clinical advisor at the organization. Yes we were specifically funded to go into a school following a death by suicide. We were primarily providing high level advice and strategy to the leadership within that school so advice on how to talk about suicide safely how to avoid sending the message. That suicide is the solution or how to avoid sending the message. That suicide is something to be ashamed of because we know that those two things increased likelihood of suicide or decreased the likelihood that some of them. We'LL SEE HOW RUPERT SAYS ONE WAY HEAD SPACE CONSIDERS WHO is most vulnerable to suicide. Contagion is by using the circles of vulnerability model. Imagine a ven diagram with three overlapping circles. Each one represents a risk factor. The first is geographical proximity so thinking about people who might witness the death by suicide or people who had recent contact with that young person that died by suicide. The second circle is psychological proximity so this is a concept around cultural association so thinking they might be from the same cultural background has made they might identify his lgbt. Qa Plus and the third circle social proximity looking about relationships here and this could be anything from being on a sporting team. Family member sibling peer in the same year level. Anyone who can be placed at the center of those three circles or risk factors. He's most at risk but we do know is that we can never underestimate how close someone feels to that person so at times it might appear. Someone has no relationship to that person but really. They feel that they've got a very close relationship. Rupert says how a community talks about and reacts to a suicide can also influence behavior. The risk of suicide contagion is probably in the risk for those who might be already sitting with thought suicide It depends on our reaction to a death by suicide so if we think about community the life of someone who has died we setting up memorials or handing out awards or introducing as specific sporting event. In named after that person we may be inadvertedly sending the message that suicide is rewarded in this way and that might increase someone's interest in thoughts of suicide likewise If we react to suicide is something. That is quite shameful or something that we shouldn't be thinking about talking about We're going to shut down the potential for those conversations that might be really vital in supporting help seeking a fee thinking about the cultural and historical connection. We've had to the term of suicide. In the past it's been a crime. Imposs- been perceived as a sin. I think these kind of hangovers in these Stigma can lend us to inadvertedly saying things like you know. They lost their battle to mental health. Three suicide or their pace or they are no longer troubled by those beds. Which I messages. We don't really WANNA be associating with suicide so all of that begs the question. How should we talk about suicide to minimize the risk of contagion? This is Rupert's advice to schools. A my advice was to a perch suicide like any other cause of death so if we're talking about heart disease or cancer or something like that. We can talk about those kind of proactive activities. That can reduce risk of those illnesses. So for our cardio-vascular illness we can be encouraging people to eat healthy exercise reduce their alcohol intake or avoid smoking together But realistically we're talking about how to have saved conversations that present suicide as a factual phenomena but pairing that with help seeking messages. Always so yes. This is a distressing topic. But this is where you can get help while schools are often the focus when it comes to suicide contagion in young people. The Internet can also play a role which makes sense right given what Dr Schweizer described earlier about social media's ability to spread behaviors and attitudes like moral outrage. Recently a case in Norway showed just how suicide contagion can spread online. Here's Joe Robinson from origin. Again there what we saw was a group of young women who appeared to really only be connected I think perhaps some of them had been linked through a psychiatric unit at some point but mainly this group was operating on social media following through hashtags around self harm and an enclosed forums or conversations and what we then saw was these conversations escalated and what we then so is this cluster of suicides where these young women tragically took their own lives having really only been connected through the social media platforms of social media groups and I think this is a relatively. New Phenomenon was the subject of a documentary that was made in Norway last year I'm not poses a real challenge for the sector because it's hard to know how was professionals. We can intervene with these very closed groups. And if you're wondering about the impact of the Popular Netflix. Show thirteen reasons. Why well it seems. The evidence is still inconclusive. One new study found that in the month following. The show's release in two thousand seventeen. It was associated with a twenty eight point. Nine percent increase in suicide rates among Americans aged ten to seventeen. But both Joe and Rupert say there are still a lot of unknowns particularly here in this country because there's been very little research that's been done Interestingly as people will know the chief protagonist that took their own life in the show was a young female interesting the US study showed an increase in young male. Suicides are not young female suicide. It's very hard to know whether or not we can you know. Correlation doesn't necessarily mean causation. But we do know there's enough of a signal there for us to be concerned. Given the right circumstances anyone could have done this. I do think one of the challenges thirteen reasons why in the way it's filmed in created is that it presents the notion that suicide and the death of the central character Hannah Baker. She's there to actually witness the impact on the community and it kind of sends this message. I feel that death is not permanent whereas we know that death is Pam and if people do die by suicide they are not available to see.
NAMI is bringing awareness to mental health throughout May
"Zip welcome to another special edition of the living, healthy podcast. Presented by L A fitness, as we continue bringing awareness to mental health throughout the month of may. We're working with nam e the National Alliance on mental illness, Naomi works year round to de stigmatize mental illness, and educate the public on ways to seek help. Learn more about mental health and get involved with their movement. Our guest today, is Rachel Robbins, manager of PR and external relations at nanny, she's had a very busy month, but we're thrilled to have her on the phone. So please welcome. Rachel robbins. Thank you guys, so much for having me. We are thrilled to be working with LA fitness this month. So I am so happy that we were able to make time to chat. Yeah, thanks for calling in and speaking with us before we get started. Can you actually share a little bit about your background and maybe how fitness has helped impact your life? Sure. So I actually just moved to Washington DC where I'm calling you guys from today. Day from New York City. So I don't know anybody. And I really used fitness as a way to get out and meet people in the community. So that's kind of the way that I. Get for millions with my brain's on taking a walk going to class on going to the gym. Luckily my apartment building has one so so that's been a great way to meet some neighbors on that just really recently is how fitness has impacted my own life. That's really nice. So he's tells a little bit more about what Namiki is what it stands for sure. So mommy is the national lines mental illness as you guys mentioned. And we are the nation's largest grassroots mental Health Organization and our mission is to provide advocacy education support, and public awareness, so that everyone that's affected by a mental illness whether that's individually or if they're supporting a family. Brand or a loved one can get the support and resources that they need to get better. So a little bit of a sidetrack here. But how do you pronounce it? Is it Nambi? Is it now? It sounds like you're saying NAMI. So where do you guys fall on that? So we pronounce it, NAMI. Now me. Okay. Okay. That's official. That's official now. It's nami. Okay. Yeah. Right. Okay. So can you. Let's talk about mental health in general. What is mental health to NAMI and kind of wise it so important that one you wanted to get involved with them, and then also that the organization exists in general. Sure, so mental health can be defined as the way we think feel and how we relate to others on genetics. The way that my brain functions your brain functions. The environment and lifestyle all player role in our mental health and mental health conditions are sometimes referred to as mental illness, and so they're interchangeable, they are common, and they are treatable approximately one in five people in the US, which is forty six point six million adults. Experience a mental illness mcgibbon year. Wow. That's so I that number is always I feel like gotta be so shocking to someone. That's never like thought about it before. Because you're like one in five like just like walk, walk down the island, your office in, like someone there, probably affected by it. Yeah. Yeah. Well, so kind of. It's important because it affects a lot of people, right? But why do you think in recent years, it's kind of gotten more attention and kind of it seems like in the last few years, all of a sudden now, more athletes, and celebrities and people are talking about mental health than they were before it. Why do you think that is? I think that, that's a huge ry reason what you just brought up about celebrities and athletes, no coming out and telling their stories and more awareness. Definitely plays a role. Specially in the media, the more that our media reports on it. There were more TV shows movies songs, whatever the case may be that deal with mental health. The more people are going to be talking to up talking about it. And this is particularly with regards to depression and anxiety. What we found is that the more people that are open to sharing their stories, the less it becomes. And we know the power of personal stories and our NAMI stories, help us, he'll provide us opportunities to participate, and inspire our communities and really encourage people have hoped which relationship. Right. I think that's so great. Honestly, that more people are talking about it. Because then you don't feel alone. You're like, oh, I'm not the only person feel like that. Yeah. It's, it's great what you guys are doing. And that's that's always important to not feel alone. So, and so you guys are really about trying to help people tell their stories in a sense. Absolutely. And that also goes into what our campaign is this may for mental health month. We're doing why care and it goes that core of that storytelling. Why do you care about mental health because why I care may be different than why you care, and so really getting to that personal connection to the cause of making it feel offensive. How would you say that exercise and fitness, you know, plays a role in helping those with mental health conditions? Yes. So we actually have seen studies that have shown that exercise can reducing variety and the Prussian as well as improve mood, it is. However, I just want to be very clear. It is not a substitute for treatment from a mental healthcare professional, right? It's just an addition. Yeah, yeah. However, but as with other health issues, it is recognized as a complimentary form of treatment of overall health and wellness for all mental health conditions. So what we actually saw from a study by the net National Institute of health found that all takes is thirty minutes a few times a week to produce mental health benefits thirty minutes. Seven that's it? Yeah. It's something when you boil it down like that you're kind of, like, yeah, that's okay. I give up one episode of TV show or something for mental health. And if you're really like in a tough spot that really might be worth that, that, I guess, sacrifice so to speak to do that. Would you see me? You watch TV as you're on the right. Yeah. That's right. You gotta find gotta find a way to say that time. What do you say when we're talking about stigmatism to and de-stigmatising mental illness? So what are some of the most stigmatized thoughts people have in society? Like what do you see as the big hurdles with this kind of movement? Yeah. So I think that we get stuck in them and talapity and that separates and isolates individuals it's their problem. It's not my problem when we can change that. And say us we can really chip away at sigma and make a difference ways that we can change. That is just like what we're doing now is having a conversation that is inclusive aware. Onus education really are the key to keeping this movement going on language that is inclusive verse labelling on the wall. It's like that advice can can go so many like can just be like, crawl across the board, right? Yeah. Smart people, caring about others. How do you how do you kinda help change that? How do you guys go about trying to make it more inclusive language like including the us versus them? And they how do you kinda what do you actually do to try and make that happen? Sure. So we operate year round we have our programs that, you know, you can find on our website from January December, but we really amplify in p periods. One of which is may which were in mental health month, also July is minority mental health month in addition to mental illness awareness week, which is the first full week of October. Right. Yeah. Last week or last year we did a weeklong campaign that was the first time Elliott finished got involved with. Campaign and yeah, it did really well like on social media, especially, like we had a lot of positive feedback from our community about how much exercise has helped them and how much they appreciate it us talking about it. So that one. So there's, there's multiple events throughout the year pretty much that try and draw wariness to this cause, and as we speak about exercise, actually, one of the amazing things that NAMI does is we have a mental health walks per gram, which is the largest one in the country et called NAMI watts. It's an almost hundred cities this year for just at ninety nine so it's phenomenal. The way that this program has grown and this year, more than fifty thousand people will join us and walk together to raise awareness of mental illness, and raise funds for the local NAMI affiliate. Which is absolutely incredible. That's great. We actually did it some people from corporate, mental illness. It was great man. We ours was at a angel stadium. So we actually got to go inside the baseball stadium. Yeah. Yes. He really cool. Yeah. So it is fun. The New York one which is actually this Saturday is across the Brooklyn Bridge. So that would be awesome icon of places in bringing people together you to look up some flights. Andrew. Oppy awesome. I've never been to New York. So that would be cool. I have so Rachel where where can people go exactly for help say, like self help group help therapy? Do you have to be diagnosed? I in order to see a doctor. How does the whole process work? Sure. So I saw NAMI has a help line that I encourage anybody who has questions can definitely utilize the numbers. One eight hundred nine five zero six two six four that's one eight hundred nine five zero six two six four for systens and our health line team, can answer questions, specific to a person situation in also can tailor. Their answer is based on where they live soon NAMI has a variety of different programs. We have classes for not only people that have a mental health condition, but also families, and friends, and we have support groups as well and the these stem from support groups for adults for young adults between the ages of eighteen thirty for children and adults scence for families, and all of these support groups in classes. We. Provide at no cost, and there are available in a location by you. Go far from your house, and you can just visit our website, which is NAMI. And A M I dot org, and you can type in your

"Thanks, mike. I have a question I'm turning thirty this summer and hitting the point in my life where I think that I was taking on more of a cartoon interpretation of reality. Do think thirtieth too late to take on and start a new career love love love this question. Mike, and listen if I could reach through the radio airwaves into your heart and say, listen, no, not even a little bit is thirty two old. My goodness. I changed my entire career round at age thirty eight. I was a tenured. Professor, I got tenure at the university of Nevada in Reno. I had a job for life. And I ran a mental Health Organization. I was the clinical director we had several offices throughout Nevada. And I also co founded the center for people convicted of violent crimes in south Lake Tahoe. So at a really a kind of a just a beautiful blessed career, I was doing a lot of different things. But I was travelling a lot I was gone away from home a lot. And so my wife, and I sat down one day and decided like what is it that we really want to do and we were out west and we're both from Pittsburgh. So we decided look with both like to come back home. And, you know, have our daughter grow up around family. So I kind of gave up everything at age thirty eight dropped everything we moved back home. And I started my career from. Scratch, and you know, what I it was the best possible thing I could have ever done. I'm so grateful. I feel so blessed to be in the career that I have and that never would have happened without risk. So I do not think in any way, shape or form. Thirty is too old. I wanna tell you I had a doctoral student out west who was a retired police officer who was pursuing a second career in his sixties to be a counselor. And he was pursuing his PHD was getting his masters degree. And I talked them into getting his doctor, and what an incredible story. I mean, he had an entire career. He retired from that. And then started a whole different career something that he loves and he does really well. And he's doing that even today and he's thriving in that career. I think that we get so caught up in. I like the way you even phrase getting. Caught up in that cartoon world. And the reason why I love that you phrase, it that way is the cartoon world isn't wrong or bad. This is something we are all in from time to time all of us. We all at times believe this is how the world should be. This is what people should be thinking. This is how people should be reacting. I had the laugh, so I do I do YouTube videos, and my YouTube channel you just go to YouTube and type in Dr Christian Conti N T E and you'll see my channel you'll see the different videos. I put out and when you throw yourself out there in public. It's funny because you're gonna get I've been so many different reactions so may differ reactions and a lot of times I just get like the most humbling incredible feedback. I get some of the most kind comments, I'm so grateful. I've heard from people all over the world sending out just and then so I want to be clear, the vast vast majority of things that I hear from people. Our gratitude, and kindness and compassionate. So they're beautiful beautiful things. But every once in a while, you know, you definitely get any time. You put yourself out there at a bigger scale. You're going to hear the negative and they're almost comical because I had someone was just today. I was looking at some of the comments and someone told me how I should have said the video completely differently. I should have done this. I should've. So basically the person watched a video that was made for free and given them to them for free information. And then decided that it wasn't exactly the way he or she wanted the video to be now, I say he or she because the reality is the most people who comment negatively on YouTube are people who do. So from an anonymous perspective anonymous count and might have eggshell for what they're they're. They're picture is and just have a candidate the numbers for a name or something like that. And people who make videos is really interesting because people who make videos are not very critical of people who make other people who make videos because they understand what goes into it. But people who don't do it. They're not they don't understand what goes into it. They are feel very entitled to live in that cartoon wrote. This is what you should have said this is what you should have done. Now. I deviate and say all of that Mike because I say that we all at times get in our cartoon world, we all demand that people be the way we think they should be. And sometimes we demanded of ourselves I should have already pursued this career. So let's say you're thinking in your own mind, you're thinking, well, I should have done this by now or I should have done that. Well, what I would invite you to do is try to stop that should China stop that train of thought. And instead come back to I'm here for a reason, whatever happened in my life, one thing led to another in the story of my life. And now here I am in this. Moment. And the question is what will I do from this moment forward, so Mike? That's what I'm asking. You. What will you do from this moment forward? Now, shifting gears isn't always easy. And I want to be really clear about that. Because when we align our expectations with the cartoon world when we change a career, we say, it should be really smooth. It should be really easy and often times you'll hear people who have already become successful talk about how yes, I took this risk. And now, I became successful. But you don't often hear about it. When people are in the midst of their struggles. But please to be accurate in the real world. There are struggles when you shift what you're doing. And that's okay struggles make us stronger. Look conflict is necessary for growth, and we'll come back. To the most basic analogy of a butterfly coming out of that cocoon, they need to break free of that. And they need to struggle because if you just rip that open for them now, they don't have the strength in those wings, and that might seem like an overplayed analogy, but it's so true. And that's probably why it's overplayed we need to go through conflict we need to go through conflict. And you know, let's think about this in terms of your thirty right now. So let's say you whatever your path is it's going to take you back to school. Let's even say it's a four year degree that you're going to go back for now in four years, you're going to be thirty four. So the question is when you're thirty four will you like where you are? If you haven't changed what you're doing. Or would you like it better? If you would have completed let's say a four year degree because those four years will inevitably come those are absolutely common knows for years. So the. The question is for you. What will you do those four years now, not just for Mike for all of you out there for all of you out there? Think about this today is Monday tomorrow is Tuesday tomorrow will be here. The sun will come up tomorrow. Now, what will you do today that will put you in the position you wanna be in tomorrow and the same is true for a year from now what will you do? Look, I spent the last several months writing this book that I'm so excited for it to come out later on this year. It's my it's my legacy book. It's on yield theory. It's called walking through anger. I can't wait for it to come out. But because I spent so much time writing I put on some weight. And now, I'm in the process of saying, I gotta get back in shape and one of the great things. My wife says to me all the time is let's not look at it. As you have to lose whatever way you wanna lose today. Just think about it over time today, you just wanna take care of today. But. It'll be mindful that the future is coming. So the way you eat the way you exercise is planning ahead for your future, self, Mike. I believe at thirty. You can absolutely do anything you want with your life. I was inspired. My dad actually was an English professor English literature professor and he switched his career up after fourteen or fifteen years being an English professor and then taught science for the rest of his career forty some forty years being a professor so being able to see that role model that things can change that late of a date, and you can have a beautiful career. Like, I said, it's absolutely possible. Mike love your question. Appreciate it so much. Appreciate your comments about the show. I think you can do whatever you want does make the goals. Super crystal clear, if you want to be a part of the show the.

True of anticipation, intimacy by sharing that asking retold no some powerful in acknowledging its existence and just standing behind it. Well, I also saw that something I was doing research interview in isolated someone was worked up about you saying that there's no such thing as sexual addiction is that. It is accurate people. Get mad like you're saying, you don't believe in that. And they're mad about it. Is that right? This is this is one of the topics that tends to burn the out the most like because it's the one that creates the biggest battle. There's so many sides to it, and I guess to down it's just clinically. I was raised doing sex addiction works so spent four years getting trained under the forefathers field in the big names that they four who still run a treatment centers and write the books, and so I'm very familiar with who they are Jerry where all these things came from a very wide than doing. This work is important, and I'm not denying people struggled sexuality, Mike. God. I am all about hilly. Killing people. It's just the model we use as problematic because when we use that word sex addiction, which is not appropriate were used for sexuality because you can't be digits a sex just like you can't be dicta to breathing. It's something as point out early. That's always operating on us, the model treatment becomes quite sexually animal sick, and really really really doesn't problematic things in it also chains of sex. So I get burnt out because I've written so many professional articles about it. I tell people I'm not going to sit here in Twitter and explain what you published go. Go read my articles, but you You know, know, bigger. bigger than that was in them, you know, trucks, alcohol, which are true addiction. People can't stop and they'll show up to work to parties. Today's my office drunk or. Hi, we have never seen someone in Starbucks masturbating because they can't stop. We've never I've never gone this my waiting room. There's someone having sex on the couch. They're waiting because they can't stop. It's just hard to stop. But we do. That's what you don't see it happening out the world. It's very difficult. It's compulsive. And so I with that I work with that that come into my office. It's it's truly the model treatment that attacking right? And yet you dared till I have nuance about your understanding admit desperately inconvenient. They wanted to be black white. Right. Totally. And again, you know, the people who are making money off this treatment don't wanna lose that they're very expensive treatment centers. And I always point out also just in closing up, this topic that every single every single mental Health Organization has rejected it and it's just so bold. Patronizing these random people to go up against the research of the diagnostic manual, the insurance companies can psychological association, the sex therapy certification like all day days. We've done the work. It's not the right word to use an people that are like y'all know better just decided on my drive here pulled it out of my ass. I just don't even like, you know, do the work..

"Store, and he's calling for Google and Amazon to do the same my colleague, Alex Richardson campaign away in Beijing. What the problem was? I think that this app is dangerous number one they're targeting LGBT use and they're saying horrible things about LGBT people. And we know this leads dire consequences for young people who are gay or lesbian bisexual or transgender. I mean, this will you say horrible things they say th- there saying the things which thousands of years of biblical ministry. Telomeres is the truth. Don't like it. But they say it's all right thousands of years of the bible and the way people have interpreted led to all kinds of horrible consequences, including slavery, anti-semitism and homophobia as well as sexism. I don't think that's an excuse for demeaning and dehumanizing LGBT people in two thousand eighteen what they're doing is rejected by every medical mental Health Organization in the world. Okay. Whether you agree with their viewpoint on art in a new clearly don't they still have a right to make that point and actually to try and stop the making their point by banning their up. Does does feel a bit like censorship while they don't have a right absolutely zero right to practice therapy when they're not qualified to do. So and if you read on their app what they were doing is. They are and again unqualified to do so are using therapeutic techniques and talking about healing people. And they're not doctor so actually there they don't have a right to do that. And repair to therapy is banned in fifteen states in the u. US and the district of Columbia because it's recognized to be so harmful. Dr caitlin. Ryan who has studied this extensively is written about it said that LGBT jeans who experience negative feedback or eight times, we're likely to attempt suicide and six times is horrible to severe depression, three times more likely use drugs, but I keep going back to you disagree with it. But but other people have found what they contact that. They put four other people have found it useful. You look at their website there people who say that they used to have lives that were blighted by things that they didn't like that. They were oppressed by their sexuality they found this that they were better. Who are you to say that they shouldn't they should talk to people? Well, I'll tell you who I am on the person who has photographed many of these people who said they've changed enga- bars. I'm the person who is out of Dan, when I'm telling you based on facts that those who have said they have changed you're only doing so because of persecution and they've been stigmatized and the pressured into saying they have chain. But my my point I come back to it is that you don't agree with what they say. But in the end isn't this about people be able to go out and make up their own minds because the alternative is that apple and Google and Amazon are going to be required. If what you say is corrected took to go through every every app that someone wants to put up go through it and decide whether or not someone might be offended by it. And then take it down surely people in the real world can make up their own mud's, apple and Google and the rest of their should take more responsibility. You know, we have seen the internet turned into a cesspool with Russia. Interference. We've seen fake ads and fake news. That have come down. We have seen the all kinds of hate groups organizing, and you know, what? No it shouldn't be debated. Whether LGBT people have a right to exist. These major companies should not provide platforms for hate. And when somebody's white to exist and the very existence is questioned whether it's Jews whether it's women, whether it's gays whether it's racial minorities. No that is nothing. We should be debating anymore as an executive director of truth wins out talking to Newsday's, Alex Ritz. And that's it for today. Back tomorrow. Kony.

There's no way you can understand the internal trauma. That it wreaks on the individuals that are suffering suffering from the gun violence, and then even the people that love them and the people that are in their communities and their families. There are not enough organizations in the country that are dealing with the mental crisis of gun violence. You know, we have organizations for alcoholics anonymous, we have organizations for breast cancer awareness. We have organizations for people that are suffering PTSD, you know, because are victims of war having gone to war. But we don't have any viable means for people that need self care with the internal mental physical traumas that they suffer from with gun violence. I would call upon the mental health community to really take apart in creating safer spaces for people to get healing because that's just not being offered right now.
