Fighting Stigma with Education
By Joshualin Dean, MS, NCC, NAMI

As I reflect on my journey with mental health, both personally and professionally, I am reminded how stigma pervades casual conversation and language — and just how damaging this stigma can be. For as long as I can remember, I have heard people use mental health diagnoses to describe everyday scenarios, like temperature changes or when an individual expresses organic emotions that do not need to be defined or clinically labeled. These casual mentions of “bipolar weather” or “crazy individuals” are not just momentarily offensive; they have wide-reaching consequences that deeply impact the lived experience of people with mental illness.

Congratulations Derek!!!

Derek has been with the Center since June 2019 in the Great Falls Outpatient Department. Since his start he has been one of the most professional, consistent, even mannered employees we have the pleasure of employing. He is client centered in his practice and goes the extra mile to keep Center clients engaged in their services while also holding them accountable. Derek has also been a calm mentoring presence since his start with us and his naturally skilled demeanor and clinical expertise has earned the respect of his co-workers and leaders from the beginning. In September 2021 Derek made it more formal and was a natural fit in becoming the Outpatient Team Lead in Great Falls. He has gone above and beyond in this role and daily demonstrates every single one of our Center values as that is just who Derek is. He is one to fade into the background and go about his work; however, when the important things come up, he will speak up and be supportive to doing it right for everyone. Derek is very deserving of this recognition! Thank you, Derek, for all you do.

Research shows people who are having thoughts of suicide feel relief when someone asks after them in a caring way. Findings suggest acknowledging and talking about suicide may reduce rather than increase suicidal ideation.

Event Timing: September 27. 2022 3-6 pm
Event Address: Holiday Village Mall 1753 US HWY 2
Contact us at (406) 265-4383 or [email protected]

Registration can be paid by cash, check, or credit card (3% fee for cc transactions) at the registration table the day of the job fair. Checks payable to the Havre Chamber of Commerce.

In an effort to keep the event simple, we are eliminating resumes and specialized job applications. Instead, we’re using a generic job application from Havre Job Service, and encouraging on-the-spot interviews. The interview allows you to tailor your questions to determine if applicants are a good fit for you, and your business! Tables will be separated with adequate distance to provide privacy for interviewing.
Job seekers are instructed to, “dress to impress, arrive with multiple copies of a completed generic job application, and be prepared for on-the-spot interviews”.

"What’s It Like to Attend 12-Step Meetings? 3 People in Recovery Weigh In" - Shatterproof

12-step programs can be an invaluable resource for people in recovery, especially when combined with other treatment services like medications and professional counseling. When people willingly attend meetings with groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, or SMART Recovery, studies show that these programs can have a positive impact on recovering from substance use disorders.

What’s it like to participate in these programs? We asked three Shatterproof Ambassadors to share their experiences.

Ten Questions to Ask Your Psychotherapist, NAMI
At some point in our lives, many of us will try psychotherapy and then decide whether to continue to engage in a full course of treatment with that provider (which may last for weeks, months or years). This decision is, typically, based on a judgment of whether the benefits of a course of psychotherapy with a given provider are worth the cost in terms of finances, time and effort.
