150: Let’s Talk Mental Health

November 28, 2015

Aaron O'Neill founded Let's Talk Mental Health because he had anxiety and depression since early childhood. He had a lot of tough times in life, a lot of loss, hardship, and mental and physical abuse (not sexual). This is not a pleasant story, but it ends well.

What is the group, and how did it come about?

The group is for sufferers of mental distress. I have 4 team members, all whom have been part of the group since the start, they are sufferers themselves, and have come through a lot, and now are able to part their experience with members of the group.

It came about as I was attending a local mental health support group, but the numbers were always low. People were getting as far as the door, then turning around and going home. As much as we’d like to think the stigma is gone, it’s not 100% gone.

I realized that I had a way that I could help others, in a private and secure way. I worked for a conference company, and it used the most secure platform available. I managed to secure a good rate with them, and this allowed me to give out free phone (or toll free) numbers to everyone. I have a host control panel so I can mute lines, dismiss guests if needed, and nobody except me can see who’s on the call. We have guest speakers on the call quite often, who tell us about what they have been through, and some of these people are recognized names and happy to put their name to our group.

We focus on positivity, sure we look at mental health and all that we’ve been through, but we focus on what can come, what you can be, empowering you in the most positive ways to help yourself, to reach out and ask for it. That’s recovery!

This idea was very new to Ireland, but it wasn’t long before we built up 350 group members, and some offline also. We advertised in local papers giving contact details so that I could issue the Thursday call details to people who needed the help, and may not have internet, or may be elderly and they’re not using social media.

We have been involved in a lot of events in Ireland, and worked behind the scenes for events like "The Voice of Ireland", where we had counsellors working with a few of the participants to help them with nerves and anxiety.

To date, we have worked out that we have helped a total of 2,400 people.

You mentioned guest speakers, could you tell us more about them, and also I believe you have some big followers?

Yes we have some regular guest speakers such as Liam Kennedy, who is a fantastic football player, and now works as a motivational speaker, and motivates the group with his talks and also his poetry.

We have Linda Creedon, who’s just qualified as a nurse. She had a rough childhood and was bullied to the extent that she wouldn’t attend her own Debs. She has since gone on to take part in Miss Ireland, and works as a model, as well as being a nurse, and a motivational speaker.

We have Valerie Farragher, who talks about alcohol addiction, and is doing massive work in Ireland to help people with Dual Diagnosis, Depression and Alcohol Addiction.

We also have some big name supporters such as Glen Hansard from the Frames, Elton John, Neville Southall, PJ Gallagher, Pat Shortt (both big name Irish comedians), and several others.

What lies ahead for Let’s Talk Mental Health?

Recently we had to move the group to a new page, simply because we wanted to change the privacy on the group on Facebook from Secret to Closed. We had too many people in the group, and Facebook wouldn’t allow us to do that so we’ve moved to a new page.

We also want to run a poster campaign by getting laminated posters sent out to rural areas in Ireland, letting them know we exist, and to get in touch, there’s no shame in it, and that there is a group out there that really cares about you, genuinely!

As I have said we have touched the lives of 2,400 people, not only in Ireland but in the UK, Spain, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, and the US. Out of everyone we have dealt with, I am proud to say that we have never lost a member.

How is the group funded?

We rely completely on donations to fund the group, we do this by asking those who have it to contribute when they can. We don’t put pressure on people as the whole idea is that the service is free. We run raffles and we are running a Christmas raffle this year on 12th December which will keep the group going for at least another 6 months.

We are going to have a complete overhaul of our website at LetsTalkMentalHealth.com, get our group more in the public domain and continue to help people as best as we can.

149: Terminal illness to love in action - a true story!

November 21, 2015

 

Some weeks ago, we put out a request to our database asking what people needed help with. Many replied with issues such as unemployment, financial difficulties, family problems, relationship issues, manifesting, anger, anxiety, sadness, stuckness and frustration. But several replied with bright, inspiring stories of overcoming disaster, recovering from terminal illness and more. Patti Intoranat was facing a liver transplant that if she didn't receive, she would surely die. Here is her story.

After surviving serious illness from an autoimmune disease triggered by stress, Patti was determined to search for a long term and permanent solution. Her journey led her to master several healing techniques such as: Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy, Traditional Hypnosis, Pure Bioenergy Healing Therapy, Reiki, Qi-gong, Vipassana Meditation and Silva Ultra Mind and she now has a thriving holistic practice in Maryland.

Learn how all of these have one simple framework - the basic understanding of how to embrace oneness with the higher self. It is not only about finding who we are, but self-love, and that drives us to who we are capable to be at our best.

Discover why all suffering, illness, and unhappiness are cries from your soul and subconscious mind asking you to fulfill your life’s purpose, realize your greatest potential, and ultimately, love, honor, and value yourself in every moment, situation, and relationship.

Patti inspires us to get up again when life knocks us down. She is a living example of love in action, and is our inspiration to never give up hope.

148: You Were Not Born To Suffer

November 14, 2015

 

At what point do we finally declare that we have suffered enough? When do we finally proclaim enough misery, enough sickness, and enough settling for less than we are worthy, deserving, and capable of?

Must we face a life-threatening illness, financial ruin, the destruction of our relationships, or the deep depression, anxiety, and insecurity that result from living in denial or fear? Must we constantly numb ourselves with alcohol, antidepressants, drugs, food, and material possessions?

What is it that defines the moment when a person wholeheartedly asserts that he or she deserves the best in life and thus will not accept anything less? When is enough truly enough? And if not now, then when?

Discover why all suffering, illness, and unhappiness are cries from your soul and subconscious mind asking you to fulfill your life’s purpose, realize your greatest potential, and ultimately, love, honor, and value yourself in every moment, situation, and relationship.

You Are Not Born To Suffer is a special book by Australian Blake D. Bauer. Born out of his personal healing and spiritual journey, as well as his professional counseling, coaching, and healing success with thousands of people internationally, You Were Not Born to Suffer offers a unique combination of deep insight and practical guidance that will empower you to transform your suffering in the present and move forward immediately in creating what you want and need most in your life right now.

Written in heart-centered, easy-to-read language, You Were Not Born to Suffer will guide you through the most challenging obstacles and lessons you’ll face in your quest for healing, purpose, success, and overall freedom. Above all else, this book will enable you to relate to yourself with unconditional love, kindness, and compassion so you can transform the core psychological, emotional, and physical blocks that are sabotaging your health, happiness, and overall wellbeing.

You Were Not Born to Suffer offers a refreshing integration of ancient and timeless wisdom, synthesized from various spiritual and medical traditions, that goes straight to the heart of our deepest wounds, needs, desires, and dreams as human beings. Once there, it inspires unconditional love, respect, acceptance, and forgiveness in the places that are universally the most difficult for us to embrace. At the same time, it also clarifies how to effectively direct your thoughts, words, and actions toward creating the “best” in every aspect of your personal and professional life.

If you are serious about healing yourself, fulfilling your life’s purpose, and awakening spiritually, then this book will support you to take your life, your power, and your destiny back into your own hands so you can live your life to the fullest — without regret.

147: Get Your Life Back

November 7, 2015

Get Your Life Back is a 12-week Journey To Overcome Stress, Anxiety and Depression. Mary Heath’s book is designed and structured in such a way that it leads you through a selection of therapies, skills and techniques from an eclectic mix of disciplines. Mary has based her unique and ground breaking book on her successes throughout her career.

Writing, designing and delivering many hundreds of classes, courses and workshops for countless patients and clients suffering the ill effects of stress, anxiety and depression Mary discovered what were the most effective and beneficial therapies and techniques to bring about a full recovery. When working on a one-to-one basis Mary also found that just one technique or skill or therapy alone was not as effective as combining several different coping strategies chosen and tailored to suit individual needs.

Here, in her innovative book, the reader will discover what works best for them with a pick & mix approach. The contents are varied and wide ranging. One day you will be learning how to control anxiety, the next discovering a new method of relaxation, and on another drawing up an effective plan to organize your day.

Get Your Life Back is meant to be read one day at a time, putting into practice the advice for that particular day. However, readers can obviously take as much time as they like, working through the course at their own pace and according to their own particular needs and circumstances.
