This #VeteransDay, MHA honors all those who serve and have served in the US Armed Forces.⠀

Approximately 18.5% of service members returning from Iraq or Afghanistan have post-traumatic stress disorder (#PTSD) or depression. Approximately 50% of returning service members who need treatment for #mentalhealth conditions seek it, but only slightly more than half who receive treatment receive adequate care.⠀

Veterans and their loved ones can call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1 or send a text to 838-255 to receive confidential support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

On Veterans Day, thank those who have served while recognizing struggles they face

When asked how to honor a Veteran on #VeteransDay, Christy Chatham, Army Veteran and Director of Veterans Behavioral Health Program at MHAGH said: “We never get tired of hearing the words 'thank you.' We may be a little awkward in receiving that. It's a little difficult to respond. Telling them 'thank you' really goes a long way, because we feel seen when we are told that."

For those who have served, they are two very different days. Knowing the meaning behind both is one simple way to truly honor their sacrifice.

For their love of country and dedication to duty, America’s veterans have endured incredible sacrifices. Many sustained life-altering physical injuries and disabilities; others bear the burden of emotional scars for the remainder of their lives. The mental health and welfare of our veterans is of critical importance, and addressing this issue has been a top priority for MHA of GH. Thank you to all who submitted their service photo!

Educators worried about learning loss Texas students experiencing during pandemic

In August, 63% of the youth in Harris and Fort Bend counties and the city of Houston screened at risk for emotional and behavioral difficulties. And 50% of parents showed similar results.
“Caregivers, educators and advocates must collaborate to ensure the mental health needs of our youth are met. We encourage parents to understand the signs and symptoms of mental health conditions,” said Dr. Jamie Freeny, Director of the Center for School Behavioral Health at MHA Houston. Thank you KPRC2 / Click2Houston!

Talking About Mental Health with Your Employees — Without Overstepping

It’s been called a “second pandemic” — the mental health implications of the global health crisis, political unrest, economic uncertainty, rising unemployment, social isolation, remote work, home schooling, and so much more. You may have checked in with your employees back in April when the crisis was acute, but you need to keep doing it. This article from Harvard Business Review outlines how: https://hbr.org/2020/11/talking-about-mental-health-with-your-employees-without-overstepping

Concerned your child is having emotional, attentional, or behavioral difficulties? Take our online Parent Test (bit.ly/35A5gCq) to determine whether your child is experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition. You are encouraged to share your results with your child's physician or healthcare provider.

A positive score on the PSC suggests the need for further evaluation by a qualified health (M.D., R.N.) or mental health (Ph.D., Psy.D., LCSW) professional. Scores in the AT RISK range might warrant further evaluation or ongoing attention but do not fall in the range of major problems at this time.

"Friends and relatives of those who experience stifling anxiety can feel powerless to help, themselves experiencing stress and worry in the process. But there are some – relatively simple – ways to help and a little friendship can go an awful long way, even if it’s not always obvious." https://bit.ly/3m4p5s6

10/21/2020

More Great News! The Federal Communications Commission is requiring all phone service providers to direct all 988 calls to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline crisis center by July 16, 2022.

The bill, which formally establishes 988 as the three-digit code for emergency mental health services, will allow people in emotional or mental distress to speak with a trained professional over the phone quickly, instead of dialing the 1-800-273-8255 number that people often cannot remember during a crisis.

S. 2661 passed the U.S. Senate in May followed by the U.S. House of Representatives in September. It was clear that votes were scheduled in both chambers only because advocates like you directed pressure toward House and Senate members through your emails, phone calls, and social media messages. You may also be very excited to know that the Federal Communications Commission voted in July to move forward with necessary technical changes to ensure 988 is available from any U.S. location within two years. In addition to its designation of 988, the law authorized states to assess small user fees on phone bills for investment in the Lifeline network and additional crisis services to meet expected growth in demand. During the next two years, we will be working to inform everyone about its impending launch.

We are beyond excited that you weighed in with congressional leadership about the astounding unmet needs of people experiencing thoughts of suicide or self-harm -- including essential and health care workers on the frontline of the global pandemic.

And, because you decided to speak up about this critical issue -- we all won.

Thank you for your tremendous work!

The pursuit and attainment of better mental health is highly important!
Click here: http://www.gofundme.com/ML4Lyfe-Foundation Dear all..... a time has come for me to put everything aside and ask for your assistance. I am starting all over again for the next Fundraising round of crowdfunding. It is STILL a passion of mine to one day open up a Rehabilitation Center dedicated to the Mentally Challenged et al as listed on the GoFundMe page. Please I know everyone hates Fundraising. Especially if you're from Africa due to the lack of transparency, accountability and relevance. So all I ask from you is to join me simply as an "Advocate". The donations are tied to 2 products, my recent movie where I was featured NOT as an actress, but as a Panel Expert in the Self-Help industry; and the 2nd product will be my book. So, in essence, you will not feel like you're giving away empty dollars. The two-pronged approach will touch you enough for you to want to make a difference or simply just buy a DVD or a book! 🤗🤝🤸‍♀ And as for online Fundraising platforms, individual contributions and/or purchases are always documented for posterity sake too. One day after all the crowdfunding initiatives, maybe this dream of mine will come to pass in my lyfetime. Be a part of my vision if you can, and understand that this long journey will include your "footprint" along a less "traveled" road. So let's sojourn.... and let's put aside our idiosyncrasies as it relates to every instance of "giving" because sometimes, at very rare instances, the reason to be a hearty "giver" far outweighs the nuanced notions of past efforts to raise money. I am not ashamed to ask my brothers and sisters on WhatsApp for funds, because I am a very supportive person; and I always do the same for most. Especially when the purpose resonates with me. So give unto this project; and I am available 24/7 to answer questions and address qualms and doubts and concerns. The First Lady of Ghana is now my Patron and my biggest supporter as you will see above. But I showcase this NOT because of who she is, but because of the kind heart that she has; as well as the stoicism and grace with which she maneuvers all difficult stances in an admirable way. So thank you in advance. I look forward to a far away future where Rehabilitation of all supposed "handicaps" or challenges will be handled, accepted and understood by my people of Ghana. Take care and reach out to me soon before I do... SMILE.🤔🤗🤭 Hugs, Respectfully, Akora ML 🤗🤗🤗🎹
