2017 NAMI Michigan Honors

We are proud to announce that
MI Healthy Mind was nominated and recognized as A Hero of Mental Health!

It’s Time To Remove The Stigma: Let’s Talk About It!

MI Healthy Mind is a 30-minute TV talk show with a focus on all things Health and Wellness, particularly in the mental health and behavioral sectors. Seasoned hosts, Elizabeth Atkins and Michael Hunter explore a vast range of subjects (addiction,

depression, bipolar, autism etc) with valuable insights and lively conversation from popular entertainers, experts, athletes, and other newsmakers. But most important, MI Healthy Mind showcases real people, “the heroes” who have

overcome and triumphed over their mental health issues. In the wake of incredible loss, or adversity, these people found a way to turn personal tragedy into hope.

“All the world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming.” — Helen Keller

Studies report that 30 percent of troops returning home from war experienced some type of mental health problem, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, or anxiety.

When it comes to mental health, stigma and lack of awareness continue to be deterrents to seeking help. Some may be ashamed about how they feel and therefore avoid speaking up, especially in communities where mental health is not openly discussed. One such example is in the military.

For those who have served, both on the frontline and back on the homefront, the demands and stresses of military life are unique and widely misunderstood.

We know that those who are exposed to trauma are at an increased risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Our veterans face a number of highly stressful situations, including deployment, combat exposure, and reintegration. Given this, it is really not that surprising that veterans are showing high rates of (PTSD), alcohol/drug use, anger management problems, physical health problems, and suicide. Many do not seek out treatment for these difficulties.

However, some vets are also coming forward to share their experience as a way to decrease the stigma and allow others to speak up about their struggles.
