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

A Conversation About The Ins and Outs of Foster Care

Picture 1

The foster care system is designed to help children in need, but what about when those children grow up?

Marsialle Arbuckle was only a young child when he was abandoned by his parents and placed in a foster home. For him, the system worked. However, he recognizes how the flaws in the system and how they can negatively impact a person’s future. Now he is dedicated to helping children who are aging out of foster care and are in the difficult process of finding or staying on the right path as young adults.

“Not only did my brothers and I suffer the tragedy of being abandoned, but also of being separated from our sibling – on the same day.” In this episode, Mr. Arbuckle reflects on his childhood in the foster care system and explains how it inspired him to start his own foundation, The Center for Urban Youth & Family Development, dedicated to helping children transition out of foster care and go on to lead happy, productive lives.

“Foster care was created as a formal structure to take care of kids when their legal caregivers can’t. The outcome is ideally to give those caregivers the resources they need, to take those children home and make the family structure better.” Good intentions – and good people – abound within the foster care system. However, as Jennifer DeVivo, LMSW, ACSW Executive Director of Fostering Futures, explains in this episode, it is complicated to help heal families and children’s spirits.
