The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) published a report titled “Out-of-Network, Out-of-Pocket, Out-of-Options: The Unfulfilled Promise of Parity.” This report refutes the promises of 2008’s Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAE) that, purportedly, made it law that benefits for mental health should be equal to benefits for physical illnesses, including surgeries. According […]

  Last August, the U.S. Marshals Service seized a sizeable quantity of products containing kratom from a California company. The company, Nature Therapeutics, marketed the product as a salve for diarrhea and a host of other ailments. Officers acting under orders from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seized the product and shut down the […]

Orlando: 50 dead. Virginia Tech: 32 dead. Sandy Hook: 27 dead. Mass casualty incidents (MCIs) involve everyone in some way. Fortunately, most of us experience them via the 24-hour news cycle of cable news or the internet. We’re spared the horror of actually being present for a mass shooting or a bombing. However, the trauma […]

Gene variations, or slight differences in a person’s genetic makeup, are responsible for all traits and characteristics that make individuals unique (e.g., hair or eye color, height, etc.). At the same time, some variations in genes increase a person’s vulnerability for developing certain types of mental illnesses, including depressive disorders, attention problems and schizophrenia. In […]

Chaplain Archie, a longtime prison chaplain, used to start his messages to the inmates this way: “An accident is when you trip on stairs or when you stain your shirt drinking coffee. A mistake is putting your full name on the ‘first name’ portion of a form. You didn’t accidentally do drugs or mistakenly drive […]

enabling behaviors

Human beings adapt to survive. We harnessed fire to avoid freezing to death. But not all adaptations are as positive as that. We also adapt by enabling others. Individuals living with an addict suffer the pangs of addiction without ingesting substances. In order to spare themselves emotional upheaval, they consciously or subconsciously choose to enable […]

Adam and Keith share their stories in a powerful video series that illustrates the deep emotional impact rape has on victims. This survivor series was funded by a Getty Images Creative Grant as part of a recent awareness campaign by the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network to show that rape can happen to anyone […]

Alcohol ads lead to teenage drinking
06-06-16 Category: Advocacy

Television commercials, radio ads and internet popups are ubiquitous in our society. There are commercials for toys, politicians, food, soda and alcohol. The majority of the food and drinks advertised are processed and loaded with sugar. When was the last time we viewed a commercial about small businesses that focus on a healthier lifestyle and […]

Fuel Eating Disorders

No one with an actual eating disorder wants to be ill, suffer or die but, sadly, too many do. Websites are in a position to support and guide those who are in danger to get the help they need, but not all websites are that helpful. “Pro-ana” sites are pro-anorexia, and “pro-mia” sites are pro-bulimia. […]

marijuana awareness campaigns
05-25-16 Category: Advocacy, Research, Substance Abuse

Marijuana is mainstream, more or less. Websites like The Cannabist review particular strains of pot along with recipes for various foods with marijuana as an ingredient. It’s fully legalized for recreational use in four states – and legal for medical purposes in another 20. Part of marijuana’s mainstreaming has been the realization it may be […]
