    Body Positivity: Mental Health and Matt Joseph Diaz

    The team at Mental Health News Radio and everythingEHR has been following Matt Joseph Diaz for some time. We’ve been amazed at his journey around body positivity and acceptance.

    When Linda Rosenberg, the CEO and President of The National Council for Behavioral Health joined us for a discussion about the “uncomfortable conversations” that must be had, we decided to create a show for our listeners that delved even deeper into the mental health field. We couldn’t think of anyone other than Matt to help us launch our first “after dark” show.

    Make no mistake – this is the no holds barred version of Mental Health News Radio. Want to hear the conversations that need to be had in order to heal our collective wounds around body issues? Tune in to this show.

  • Practical Steps for Changing the World with Dr. Jennifer Prince

    Practical Steps for Changing the World with Dr. Jennifer Prince

    Our world has always had problems. There has always been racism, terrorism, hatred, and other horrible wrongdoings toward human beings. However, we don’t have to sit back and just accept life like this.

    You can change the world. I can change the world. And it starts with Self.

    This is where our power lies: With Self. Because we can’t control other people. We can only control ourselves. And that’s empowering.

    We have more power than we think. Isn’t that good news?! Since everything starts with Self, then this is absolutely good news!

  • Sexual Abuse and the Catholic Church: In the Spotlight

    Sexual Abuse and the Catholic Church: In the Spotlight

    Phil Saviano is a victim of child sexual abuse by a Massachusetts Catholic priest in the 1960s. In 1992, at the age of 40, he went public about his abuse, generating national headlines. Through the pursuit of a civil suit, he gained evidence that least 7 bishops in four states had known that his abuser, Fr. David Holley, was a child molester. After settling his lawsuit with no confidentiality restrictions, he established the New England Chapter of SNAP, the national support network. Through SNAP, he formalized his outreach to other victims of child clergy abuse and assumed a role of expert and media spokesperson on the issue. Phil’s year 2001 contributions to the Boston Globe’s landmark investigation of clergy abuse in the Archdiocese of Boston, MA are portrayed in the movie “Spotlight,” the Academy Award Winning Best Film of 2016.

    Mike Rezendes is a member of the Boston Globe Spotlight Team and shared a 2003 Pulitzer Prize for revealing the cover-up of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. In more than two decades with the Globe, he has investigated a wide array of additional subjects, including the September 11 attacks, health care costs, and prison suicides. While working with the Spotlight Team, Mike was also a Pulitzer Prize finalist twice, once in 2007 for an investigation of the debt collection industry, and again in 2017 for an exposé of the mental health care system in Massachusetts.

  • From The Gridiron to Addiction Recovery With Randy Grimes

    From The Gridiron to Addiction Recovery With Randy Grimes

    We had the pleasure of meeting Randy and Lydia Grimes at the Navigating the World of Addiction conference in Littleton Colorado. Randy and Lydia were there with the treatment center they passionately serve Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches. Sharing the stage to discuss their story as a family was inspiring for all of us.  Randy made sure to invite Lydia to join him to share her part of the journey as well.  Addiction is a family disease and hearing from both husband and wife was powerful. Randy was an American football player who played center for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1983 to 1992. He also played for Baylor University during the early 1980’s and was part of the 1980 Southwest Conference Champion Bears. He is now an interventionist, speaker, and part of the team at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches.

    Our podcast is known for Keeping it Real and that is exactly what you get with Randy. This was very personal for the entire team at Mental Health News Radio and many of our listeners. A healing took place for all of us since meeting Randy and especially for our host Kristin Walker during this intimate and poignant interview. Our heartfelt thanks go out to him, his wife Lydia, his family and the staff of Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches.

    Randy and Lydia continue to share their experience with addiction and recovery using their knowledge to help not only athletes but any family struggling with their road to recovery. We are honored to take part in working with Randy sharing the stories of the many lives saved because of USING YOUR VOICE.

  • Fifty Shades of Narcissism By Dr. Jennifer L. Prince

    Fifty Shades of Narcissism By Dr. Jennifer L. Prince

    I recently saw Fifty Shades of Grey for the first time and am elated to write about the protagonist, Christian Grey. What intrigued me most about this movie was Mr. Grey’s blatant narcissism. Though this movie has an erotic storyline, that’s not my focus. The aim of this article is to underscore the qualities typically seen in narcissists, so that you can reduce your risk of being ensnared by these emotional vampires.

  • How Academic Institutions Benefit from Adopting Behavioral Health EHRs

    How Academic Institutions Benefit from Adopting Behavioral Health EHRs

    Tools for tomorrow’s workplace today

    Academic institutions that offer programs for psychiatry and psychology students need to invest in behavioral health EHR software.  They want to offer their students the best software tools as well as the opportunity to step into the workforce ahead of their peers.  With training in sophisticated software applications these future leaders in behavioral health are better equipped to focus on patient care because they can capitalize on the growing trend to incorporate electronic health records (EHR) into clinical operations.

Whether it’s by effecting federal change by pushing through much-needed policies on the Hill or stifling mental health stigma with science or social media, the National Council is a best friend to behavioral health providers and vendors alike—even if they don’t know it (you likely do).
