The Team Around PACT (Program for Assertive Community Treatment): Ellenhorn.com

Zoi Andalcio and Lisa Copolla, part of the counseling team discuss with our host, Kristin Sunanta Walker, the impact that working with and for Ellenhorn.com’s mental health community has made in their lives. Prakash Ellenhorn has changed it’s name to “Ellenhorn”. This change has absolutely no impact on the level of care that we provide or how we work with our clients – it is simply just a change in the name itself.

LISTEN TO THE INTERVIEW!

Earlier this year, Dr. Ross Ellenhorn purchased the company from his business partner, Dr. Madhavi Prakash, on very good terms. Since then, our team has been spending time thinking about a new name, and decided on Ellenhorn. Prakash Ellenhorn is widely recognized and held in high regard within the mental health community and with many business partners – and we did not want to lose the name recognition entirely.

With the launch of our new name comes a significant branding transformation. We have a fresh new look that emphasizes our philosophy at Ellenhorn: rebuilding purposeful lives through compassionate care. Having spent years in Arlington, getting to know the specific historical culture of our town, we have also decided to revisit our residence’s old roots and re-name it “The Brackett House,” as this better represents the house itself.  Please visit our brand new website – www.ellenhorn.

It Ain’t Weak to Speak: Catching Up with Sam Webb of LIVIN

0000000000000000001

Sam Webb Cofounder of LIVIN on Why #ItAintWeaktoSpeak

He may hail from Sydney, Australia, but Sam Webb has traveled the globe to further a cause that he’s keenly passionate about: mental health and suicide prevention. Sam has fought his own mental health challenges, as almost anyone can relate, but it’s the act of a dear friend, Dwayne Lally, taking his own life three years ago that spurred Sam to action.

Enjoy Sam’s interviews on Mental Health News Radio HERE!

To fight back against the all-too-common (and pervasive) stigma of mental health, in 2013 Sam cofounded the charity LIVIN (www.livin.org.au), an organization that promotes the mantra “it ain’t weak to speak.” Whether it’s through international presentations to schools or sporting organizations or via LIVIN’s innovative fashion line, Sam’s efforts focus on making mental health an approachable, even cool, subject to broach for all—those who are experiencing a mental health challenge firsthand as well as those who are concerned for friends or family. Mental health isn’t a silo meant to shut anyone away from the world, and Sam is traveling the globe to spread the message that it ain’t weak to speak—to speak up about your own struggles and to speak out against mental health’s stigma.

Meet the Faces of Mental Health News Radio: Melissa Richards, Counselor and Guest on Empowered Empaths

big-laugh-no-sweater-copyAfter earning a master’s degree in professional counseling from Liberty University in Virginia, Melissa Richards moved to Tampa, Florida, where she encountered a variety of populations and concerns in her many hours of training to become a licensed mental health counselor. Coincidentally, Tampa is also the birthplace of her first foray into private practice: otherwise known as Restoration Counseling Center.While she continues to practice today (though now based in Miami), Melissa enjoys any opportunity she’s offered that allows her to expand her counseling reach and notes the honor and joy she receives from “walking alongside so many hurting people.” That includes writing articles and speaking to larger audiences through various conferences or podcasts—and as of this summer, it also includes joining the Mental Health News Radio team.


The Art of Empathy: An Interview with Karla McLaren

emotion-dynamics-330-x-132How can we create a healthy workplace for health and healing professionals?

Study after study confirms that health and healing professionals who demonstrate empathy provide better care with higher patient/client satisfaction. However, empathic burnout and compassion fatigue are a constant presence in the working lives of health professionals.

Nutrition and Mental Health: What is the Connection? Christina Veselak, LMFT, CN

Human Mind series. Background design of brain human outlines and fractal elements on the subject of technology science education and human mind

Join our host Kristin Walker as she learns about focusing on Mental Health and Nutrition with Christina Veselak MA, LMFT, CN. Christina’s experience and training as a Mental Health Nutritionist has led her to see how our personal biochemistry affects our mood and behavior. By practicing Mental Health Nutrition she is able to help her clients identify nutritionally based issues such as protein intake, blood sugar balance & hypoglycemia, food intolerance’s and genetic issues in order to reduce depression, anxiety, insomnia, relapse, and even some psychotic symptoms. Most complex disorders have both emotional and biochemical components to them, therefore, we need to address both at the same time.
