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


Imagine being accustomed to seeing the world in all its bright, technicolor beauty. And then…you can’t. You’re blind. It’s a loss that goes far beyond the loss of your vision—being plunged into a world of physical and emotional darkness, where you can’t find your way out.

We meet Jeff Hawkins who talks about his slow, progressive descent into blindness, and his initial reaction to losing his sight. While terrifying and debilitating at first, Jeff shares insights he gained about these new challenges and what allowed him to move forward in life.

MI Healthy Mind sheds some light on the mental and emotional effects of acquired blindness, and how Leader Dogs For The Blind can help lead you or someone you love out of darkness.

Margo Siegel, LMSW, PLLC discusses the definition of legally blind, how people are coping with the psychological impact of vision loss, as well as how psychotherapy can lead to solutions for anxiety, depression and grief.

Watch this week as Mi Healthy Mind delves into Jeff’s world as he overcame his fears, pursed his dreams and found joy in his life again. And how he ultimately came into the light…with a little help from his friend, Gracie.
This is truly a story of the Triumph of the Human Spirit!
