National Su***de Prevention Month
There are an average of 123 su***des each day in this country. It’s the 10th leading cause of death in America — 2nd leading for ages 25-34, and 3rd leading for ages 15-24.
Su***de is the most preventable death. Understanding that mental health struggles can affect anyone, is essential in shattering the stereotypes and misconceptions surrounding these issues.
By promoting open dialogue, education, and empathy, we can create an environment that supports those in need and offers hope.
In order to create awareness and strengthen the fight against su***de, the entire month of September is Su***de Prevention Month.
If you or someone you know are experiencing suicidal ideations (SI) or self harming behaviors please give us a call at 469.535.8001.

Haven Behavioral Hospital of Frisco Employee Highlight Edition.
Haven's Highlight: Rebecca Ross, LMSW
"My name is Rebecca but I go by Becca. I got both my bachelors and master’s degree in social work at Angelo State University in San Angelo, TX. I chose social work because I have always wanted to help people in a meaningful, impactful way rather than sitting in a cube figuring out numbers! I’ve been at Haven for a little over a year but have worked in behavioral health for about two and half years. I have two dogs, Bella and Brian and I recently got engaged to my fiancé of 10 (on and off) years! On the weekend, I enjoy spending my time with friends and family. I love the work I do and the people I do it with!"

Today is the last day of Black History Month and our Black Pioneers in Mental Health 4 part series has come to an end. We thank you guys for following along with us!
Black Pioneers in Mental Health Part 4: Mamie Phipps Clark, Ph.D. And Kenneth Bancroft Clark, Ph.D
Mamie Phipps Clark was the first African American woman to earn a doctorate degree in psychology from Columbia University. She previously earned both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Howard University. Her experience in college and specifically graduate-level courses helped her realize the shortage of psychological services available to the African American community and other minorities. The Clarks are best known for the famous “Doll Study” in which more than 200 Black children participated. Both Mamie and Kenneth Clark worked on this study, providing invaluable evidence in favor of ending school segregation in the supreme court case Brown vs. The Board of Education, citing that school segregation was psychologically harmful to black children.
Dr. Kenneth Clark was the first-ever black president of the American Psychological Association.
Dr. Mamie Phipps Clark's dedication and passion for adequate mental health services for all prompted Dr. Clark to open her own agency to provide comprehensive psychological services to the poor, blacks, and other minority children and families. In February 1946, Dr. Clark and her husband opened the doors of “The Northside Center for Child Development” for those in the Harlem area. She worked in the center counseling and providing other psychological services from 1946 until 1979 when she retired. Although retired, Dr. Mamie Phipps Clark served on different advisory boards and was still very active within her community.
Happy Monday! This week we continue our Black Pioneers in Mental Health 4 part series as Black History Month and February comes to an end.
Part 3: We highlight Dr. E. Kitch Childs.
In 1969, E. Kitch Childs helped to found the Association for Women in Psychology. She was also a founding member of Chicago's Gay Liberation Front. In addition to being a leader for women in psychology and the LGBTQ+ community, she also owned her own practice in which she provided therapy to LGBTQ+ folks, people living with HIV/AIDS, and other marginalized members of her community. She practiced feminist therapy, and centered her research and work around the experiences of Black women and feminist theory.
Happy Monday! We're continuing our 4 part series to highlight African Americans whose work helped lay the foundation for the field of mental health.
Black Pioneers in Mental Health Part 2:
Dr. Solomon Carter Fuller was a pioneering African American psychiatrist who made significant contributions to the study of Alzheimer's disease. He was born in Liberia, the son of a previously enslaved African who had purchased his freedom and emigrated there. He graduated from Boston University School of Medicine, which as a homeopathic institution, was open to both African American and women students. He spent most of his career practicing at Westborough State Mental Hospital in Westborough, Massachusetts. While there, he performed his ground-breaking research on the physical changes to the brains of Alzheimer's patients. Dr. Fuller was one of the first known Black psychiatrists and worked alongside Dr. Alois Alzheimer, who first discovered the traits of Alzheimer's disease in 1901.
Happy Black History Month !
Haven is proudly celebrating Black History Month by kicking off our 4 part series highlighting Black Americans' contribution to the field of mental health.
Maxie Clarence Maultsby, Jr, M.D.
Dr. Maultsby was the founder of the psycho-therapeutic method, rational behavioral therapy. Through his work and therapeutic method, Dr. Maultsby explored emotional and behavioral self-management. Dr. Maultsby's unique contributions include making emotional self-help a legitimate focus of scientific research and clinical use.
Through rational behavior therapy, he formulated a comprehensive system of cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy and counseling that incorporated, in a clinically useful way, the most recent neuropsychological facts about how the brain works in relation to emotional and behavioral self-control. The technique of cognitive-behavioral therapy and counseling that Dr. Maultsby created is the first comprehensive, yet short-term, culture and drug-free technique of psychotherapy that produces long-term therapeutic results.
In addition to authoring books for health professional therapists and counselors, Dr. Maultsby has written four pioneering books that describe his method of emotional self-help, called rational self-counseling.

Sleet is coming down. ❄️🌨️For those of you leaving work now or later, please keep these tips in mind to stay safe on the road:
❄️ Avoid traveling when sleet, freezing rain, or snow is predicted, and monitor road conditions by visiting Drive Texas (DriveTexas.org) or calling (800) 452-9292.
❄️ If you must drive in inclement weather, allow extra time to reach your destination.
❄️ On icy roads, drive slowly and increase the distance between your vehicle and others, as you may need additional room to stop.

Diagnosing mental illness isn’t a straightforward science. We can’t test for it the same way we can test blood sugar levels for diabetes. Each condition has its own set of unique symptoms, though symptoms often overlap. If you or a loved one is unsure, feel free to take a screening on our website: mhadallas.org/screening-tools
"Addiction sneaks up on you. When someone starts questioning whether they have a problem, I suggest they abstain for 30 days. I say, 'If you can't stop for 30 days, why not?' Then we may need to reevaluate the person's relationship with alcohol."
