Hope and Grief with Dr. Fatima Ali Haider

In this very special conversation, Dr. Fatima Ali Haider shares about her personal tragedy and how it led her to start an organization to create a space for women and mothers to grieve in Pakistan. The toll of terrorism in clear and the impact of trauma cuts across cultures. This heartwarming conversation is further proof that the worldwide need for understanding trauma and creating access to mental health services is necessary. Listening to this brave and incredible woman will leave you inspired.

Fatima Ali Haider, a medical doctor and EMDR therapist by training, lost her husband and son in an incident of sectarian terrorism in 2013. Her personal experience and journey after the tragedy made her aware of those suffering in similar situations. Therefore, she co-founded an initiative in 2015 called ‘The Grief Directory’ that was intended to be a bridge of compassion between victims of terrorism in Pakistan who require support and individuals willing to offer it. Through this platform, she has reached out to countless victims of terrorism and their families across the boundaries of religion, sect or ethnicity, providing assistance in areas of health, education and emotional support. Other than directly working with the victims, Dr. Fatima has been conducting youth internship programmes from The Grief Directory’s platform for the last five years, training young college students on empathy, tolerance, acceptance, and resilience through in person meetings with victims and diversity tours. The programme has been well attended by young students, many of them women. In an effort towards countering terrorism and violent extremism in Pakistan, she regularly advocates for the rights of victims of terrorism in Pakistan including establishment of institutionalized mechanisms of support and state ownership on various platforms.
Dr. Fatima recently completed her master’s in Peace and Conflict from the University of Ulster, Northern Ireland, and is now undertaking her Ph.D. there. She hopes to bring valuable lessons home to support those who have been marginalized due to religion, sect, and acts of violence.

Ken Falke and WP72 Alum Erika Emmons talk 2020 lessons learned

Don’t miss this deep dive into the power of Warrior PATHH and how it can benefit you in any situation. Join Ken Falke as he sits down and chats with Erika Emmons, WP72 Alumni, about her life before and after the program, as well as how it helped her prepare to care for her mother in her final moments of 2020. Erika Emmons is a 6-year Army National Guard combat veteran. She deployed with the 36th Infantry Division to Iraq from 2010-2011 as an imagery analyst before getting out in 2012. She currently lives in Cary, NC for her job with BAE Systems, Inc where she works as a software trainer, technical support, and a Jane of all trades in the GEOINT (Geospatial Intelligence) community.

Erika attended the Warrior PATHH program at Boulder Crest Virginia in October of 2019 and is a proud member of WP class 072 (Valkyrie). She actually put off attending the program for over a year & a half because she felt there were other vets who needed it more than her, but thanks to the gentle persistence of Joe Wood, she relented. Today she readily admits that she needed the program more than she realized & that self-care is NOT selfish, but necessary.

Erika’s biggest personal accomplishment this year was being able to be her mother’s primary caregiver in her last chapter of life. Throughout the year Erika shared her journey through public posts on Instagram & Facebook in hopes of reaching people who are either in similar situations or may be in the future. Her goal was to help just one person, but now she has expanded that goal to reach as many as possible. She is working on a YouTube series about being a primary caregiver & is also in the very early stages of writing a book on the same topic.

Listen in to Dr. Denise McDermott to obtain your needed prescription of empowerment by helping to find your own multi-dimensional approach to mental wellness. Dr. Denise is here to help change the way people think, talk, and act about mental health with mind, body, and soul discussions.

“I honor and respect that each of us has our own unique way of processing and perceiving the world, or ‘neuro-style,’ a phrase I have coined that is a non-stigmatizing way to discuss your inner world or mindset. It is all-encompassing and includes the biological, psychological, social, cultural, and spiritual aspects.”  – Dr. Denise McDermott

About Dr. Denise & Ascension Media

Dr. Denise McDermott, M.D. has been in private practice since 2001. As a medical doctor with board certifications in both Adult and Child Psychiatry, she treats children, adolescents, and adults. Her goal is to empower all to live the best life possible. Her approach is to encourage people to believe in wellness, not illness, and to lead a balanced healthy lifestyle. As an integrative adult and child psychiatrist, Dr. Denise bridges Eastern and Western modalities of healing in order to help others go from ‘crisis’ to being able to thrive and reach their goals.

Learning a non-shaming way of handling difficult life situations while growing up, primarily through her father’s journey of sobriety, her parents nicknamed her their “little Ann Landers,” as she was always the go-to person for advice within her circle throughout her life. Dr. Denise realized during her 3rd-year medical school rotations that mental wellness was key for optimum health which brought her into the psychiatric field. Dr. Denise adopted her son at birth and his neuro-style challenges and intuitive giftedness keep her day to day life hopping!  His exuberance keeps her young and connected to “Mission: Mental Wellness.”  To stay fit, creative, and sane she swims six to seven days a week as her own “mind medicine.” Check out her website here: www.drdenisemd.com.

Ascension Media is a multimedia company and a labor of love that is engaging minds and igniting opportunities.  Just this month, Dr. Denise, the company’s CEO, launched her new entity and her continued journey to be able to reach as many people and help them with their own journeys.  The company’s goal is to “Elevate the Human Spirit through Media.” The Dr. Denise Show is just a part of her path.  Dr. Denise refers to Ascension Media fondly as, “an Ascension energy space,”  and as a collaborative effort between Dr. Denise and several others that wish to help in maintaining this ‘energy space.’  Check out her website for more information http://www.ascension.love.
