TDW Show feat: Therapist, Shelly Khaldi, discusses importance of EAP (Employee Assistance Programs) for mental health at work
Tune in (10/26/20) on The Doctor Whisperer Show, at 5:30pm EST, to welcome Therapist, Shelly Khaldi, LMHC, who will discuss with us the importance of EAP (Employee Assistance Programs) for mental health at work. Employee assistance programs (EAPs) provide a range of different services and resources. In general, EAPs provide assessment and services for addressing a range of personal problems and concerns that interfere with employees’ well being and work performance (EASNA, 2009). EAPs may help individuals with emotional and substance use issues, interpersonal relationships, legal problems, and financial difficulties. In addition, EAPs may provide information and resources on health promotion and work/life issues. EAP professionals may also provide training and/or consultation to managers and supervisors on organizational concerns. Furthermore, EAPs may be helpful to employees experiencing serious illness and the associated challenges of staying at work or returning to work (National Business Group on Health, 2013).

He is part of the incredible team at Alternative Psychiatry and brings incredible value to all of his patients. Trauma defined below ...according to Psychology Today ... ‘Traumatic experiences often arouse strong, disturbing feelings that may or may not abate on their own. In the immediate aftermath of a traumatic event, it is common to experience shock or denial. A person may undergo a range of emotional reactions, such as fear, anger, guilt, and shame. Feelings of helplessness and vulnerability are also common. Some may experience flashbacks and other signs of PTSD. Traumatic memories fade naturally with time. Persistence of symptoms is a signal that professional help is needed.’ I love the options provided by Richard Schulman, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist on the show. #mentalhealth #trauma #psychologist #psychology #ptsd

TDW Show feat: Joe Part, Founder of Alltrust Insurance discussing the power of relationships
Joe founded Alltrust in 1994 with an ‘off the wall’ idea to provide unparalleled value and create a company focus entirely on employee benefits. Coming from a family of physicians and previously working for a large regional insurance agency; he understood that healthcare is not just an insurance product. It is a complex, but essential influence in our day to day lives, a support system that, when used properly, can and should give people peace of mind in their most difficult and darkest times. As a result, he believed healthcare and health consumers should be given the same intimacy and support that a physician would have with a patient. And, Alltrust Insurance was born. Alltrust joined Acrisure in 2015 and Joe & his lovely wife Karen have been enjoying the good life ever since. http://www.alltrustinsurance.com/

By making this big life transition of buying or selling a home simpler, his clients gain the freedom of moving forward to pursue the next step in their life’s journey.

TDW Show feat: Kristi Campbell, Owner of two franchises of Home Instead Senior Care (Tampa and Brandon) discusses her business during COVID-19
Every day, all across America, families are struggling to cope.  Many are raising children, working demanding jobs and trying to care for a senior family member.  These Americans are often called the "Sandwich Generation", and they are growing in record numbers.  That's because America is aging in record numbers. By the year 2020, the number of seniors will equal the number of 20 to 35 year olds.  Advances in medicine and healthier lifestyles will help seniors work longer and continue to lead more productive lives.  But the numbers also tell another story.  More and more children need to help care for their parents.  These family caregivers eventually run out of hours in the day, the stress becomes too great and the balance is broken. The Tampa Home Instead Senior Care family has a passionate desire to be your trusted source in helping your family keep your aging mother, father, grandparents or friends in their home as they grow older. It's that simple. This is all we do and because the home care services your loved one or friend needs must come from someone you trust locally, the Tampa Home Instead Senior Care office is passionate about exceeding the needs of the elderly in our community. We're not a giant corporation run from the top down - we're a locally owned community-based, friendly and responsive office right here in Tampa, FL. Whether we are assisting with Alzheimer's care, light housekeeping, meal preparation, safety watch, companionship, personal care or medication reminders, we are an affordable solution to our clients as they remain safe and happy.  No matter where seniors live, in their home, in assisted living facilities or even nursing homes, Home Instead Senior Care is currently providing thousands of hours of senior home care services annually.  Since 2003, we have been your trusted source for comprehensive companionship and home care services for seniors throughout the Tampa area. Services can be arranged for as little as 3 hours, or as many as 24 hours, up to 7 days per week (including holidays).  This one-on-one service is performed by CAREGivers who are bonded and insured after undergoing a stringent background check.  Our compassionate CAREGivers love working with seniors and very special attention is given to matching them with clients to achieve the utmost compatibility. https://www.homeinstead.com/135

TDW Show feat: Tania Welch, Yoga Teacher discusses Wellness during COVID-19
Tania Welch's story "AN UNEXPECTED BEGINNING Hello & Welcome. I am Tania Welch…mama, yoga & wellness teacher, and founder of Indobay Living and Intent Space. My life, as I know it now, began after a great tragedy. In the early hours of September 29th, 2003 I learned that my husband had been killed in a car accident. Life as I once knew and recognized suddenly became unrecognizable and unbearable. I was 32 years old, mama to an 18-month old little boy and I was now a widow. As l limped through my days it became quite clear to me that I had a decision to make...either be defeated or live the life I imagined with courage, intention, and great joy! I CHOSE THE LATTER. How it began. A virtual soul space which I named indobay became an expression of my journey...my journey from grief and uncertainty to resilience, and deep, soul happiness derived from living a creative, intentional and simple life aligned with what mattered most. Living within the spirit of indobay helped me to re-connect with myself, pay exquisite attention to my life and my choices and navigate into the best life for myself and my little man. SO WHAT IS INDOBAY? Indobay is a way of living and a "state of mind" that embraces and passionately advocates internal wellness through the practice of simple, intentional living, yoga, and fierce soul-care. It is a nourishing space for mind, body and soul. What's next? I have rekindled a love affair with my "medicine", my soul's purpose. I had been bringing it all to my family and now I am ready to EXPAND in all directions and bring it to the world. A fire has been lit! In December, 2017, Intent Space, a conscious space to gather, was born. Intent Space exists to support folks in easefully transitioning to a more intentional life. Through simple conscious movement, meditation, self-care practices, inspired events, ritual and ceremony I hope to cultivate experiences that support a true sense of well-being; simply, sincerely and sustainably. In loving service, Tania Welch" https://www.intentspace.com

World Mental Health Day - 970 WFLA
FROM 970 WFLA (WFLA-AM) (Oct. 10th, 2019): Jack Harris hosts.  "Sharon Fekete and Lissette (Campos) joined AM Tampa Bay to discuss that World Mental Health Day is today, October 10th. Sharon shares her story to recovery and talks about her book: "The Broken Road to Mental Health, In Life and in Business.'" ▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎ “World Mental Health Day (10 October) is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma. It was first celebrated in 1992 at the initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health, a global mental health organization with members and contacts in more than 150 countries.” I am showing you SMILING happy faces today. This smile you see today was something I NEVER thought I would see again when I was in a deep dark depression 25 years ago. Family, friends, and a strong support group loved me back to health but it took a LOT of work and trust in others. On this WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY I encourage you to help someone else. That is the secret to success in life and in business. If you are suffering, please ask for help. I did and my life today is ‘beyond my wildest dreams’ and it has absolutely nothing to do with material success. It’s love. Good ole’ fashioned love. Thank you my beautiful friend Lissette Campos -Tampa Bay and AM Tampa Bay for shining a light on mental health today...let’s keep encouraging others that asking for help is a sign of STRENGTH not weakness. If you go to therapy, a psychiatrist, a psychologist, life coach, 12 step recovery group, practice meditation, spend time connecting to spirit and beyond that ACTUALLY MEANS YOU’RE HEALTHY AND MENTALLY STRONG! No. More. Shame.
