The Scudder Intervention Services Foundation Inc "SISFI" and The #Suicide Institute in association with Senator Luis R. Sepulveda invites you to a workshop on "A Conversation About Managing Pain, Anxiety, Addiction, Depression, Suicide" facilitated by Mr. Brett A. Scudder, painologist, suicideologist and attempt survivor at SISFI and The Suicide Institute on February 19th 2020 at 900 Rogers Place, Bronx, NY, 10459. Mr. Scudder has lived with depression and the experiences and impacts of it and knows quite intimately in how they can impact the overall human experience, life, health, family, relationships, social status and well-being. He will be covering the signs, symptoms and experiences with warning signs, red flags, early and crisis intervention to be able to identify and support someone living with it. Most people think of depression as someone down, weak and unable to function, but there's much more to the condition and how many high functioning people struggle and suffer with it. Sometimes, depression can lead to death by suicide, accidental overdose and other fatalities. So join us, and let's take a closer and deeper look into this health condition and challenge.
Most people truly find satisfaction, happiness and joy in their life and so as they live and breathe it they feel a sense of fulfillment, accomplishment and purpose. Most times we never think of anything going bad or wrong and so the bliss of happiness is what sustains our wellness and sense of purpose, pride, ego and self-worth. Then, unbeknownst to us, one day, a life disruption occurs and the happiness, peace, safety and comfort we had and felt is now being lost as a result of that disruption, and we have no control over it so we start slipping into deep emotional pain, depression, crisis and despair. We also have to factor in preexisting conditions the person is already challenged with such as mental illness, trauma, abuse and some form of affliction that makes coping with this new life disruption even harder.
Depression is an experience of immeasurable emotions that can cause pain, hurt and danger. Every breath the person takes is either easing their pain, or adding to it. We all have parts to play in helping those who are struggling and suffering with/from emotional pain, abuse, addiction, depression, trauma and despair. If one of us is struggling and suffering with it, we should all be empathizing and supporting them nonjudgmentally and compassionately. You don’t have to be a mental health “professional” to help, support, encourage hope and speak life into someone who is experiencing emotional pain and depression. Anyone with empathy and a willing heart in some stages of this process can be the light of hope, peace, Love and sustenance for the person. Focus on being present to allow them to express their pain so their heart and mind can be relieved of it.
Let’s come together to learn, embrace and heal so we are not retraumatizing and revictimizing each other when in pain, but help each other cope, manage it and overcome it. Join us to learn safe tips of living with it and managing the impacts. So many people are living in a state of crisis and distress and don't know how to get out of it or even stay sane through it all. The crisis may pass, or extend for longer periods than imagined, but will you be ok through it all, or will you pass away with/from it.
