Announcing the Scudder Intervention Services Foundation, Inc.'s 'SISFI', The Suicide Institute and The Suicide Council's Research Project, The "#EmotionalWellness of NYC #MentalHealth Practitioners" Nov. 24th-Dec. 31st 2019. At the end of the day, we are all human and susceptible to the challenges, pains and stressors of life directly and indirectly and so we want to let practitioners know we hear their cries and are helping to address the challenges citywide with their help. Over 50 practitioners from across NYC has already signed on for the research and we still have room for more. The project is private and confidential and concludes with a report of our findings and recommendations. Participants can engage in person or over the phone.

We will come to you if needed. The report will highlight the number of clinicians and their feedback to the research but not their names and information. We are looking forward to this and learning more about our practitioners and how we, SISFI and The Suicide Council can help to provide effective support in their work, businesses and personal challenges because we know the realities of these things. Feel free to share with your networks and help to connect to more people who can benefit from this. Contact me for more information as needed. Thank You.

Announcing the Scudder Intervention Services Foundation, Inc.'s 'SISFI', The Suicide Institute and The Suicide Council's Research Project, The "#EmotionalWellness of NYC #MentalHealth Practitioners" Nov. 24th-Dec. 31st 2019.

I’m humbled and elated to announce a new research project we started at SISFI and is now making a general public one, the “Emotional Wellness of NYC Mental Health Practitioners” to answer the calls of help from burnout, stress, overworked, underpaid, personal life challenges and overwhelming feelings we have been hearing from many across the city. We have also heard from clients seeking treatment that their sessions were taken over by practitioners expressing their own personal and family dramas and they left the session angry and upset by it. At the end of the day, we are all human and susceptible to the challenges, pains and stressors of life directly and indirectly and so we want to let practitioners know we hear their cries and are helping to address the challenges citywide with their help.

The project is private and confidential and concludes with a report of our findings and recommendations. Participants can engage in person or over the phone. We will come to you if needed. The report will highlight the number of clinicians and their feedback to the research but not their names and information. Some have expressed desire to make known their titles and credentials as they see great values in this effort and want to help validate it. Whoever wants to be named in the report we will honor their request and thank them for supporting the need.

Our sincere gratitude to Ms. Leslie Garcia, CEO of The Counseling Space for offering a space in the Chrysler Building in Manhattan for us to meet on Saturdays for groups of practitioners who want to engage in supporting each other and being part of the research. We are also making groups available during the week in the Bronx and Brooklyn to make it easier and more comfortable for those who want to participate.

We are looking forward to this and learning more about our practitioners and how we, SISFI and The Suicide Council can help to provide effective support in their work, businesses and personal challenges because we know the realities of these things. Feel free to share with your networks and help to connect to more people who can benefit from this.

Thank you very much and have a great day one breath at a time and embrace and enjoy it. We apprecilove your patronage and look forward to serving you with more quality humane, health, psychological and emotional programs, services and resources. One Love.

The Scudder Intervention Services Foundation, Inc. “SISFI” and The Suicide Institute invites you to our "Understanding The Language and Behaviors of #EmotionalPain #Depression and Suicide" on World Suicide Prevention Day September 10th 2019 3-5pm at Community Board 12, 4101 White Plains Road, Bronx, NY, 10466 for Suicide Intervention, Prevention and Postvention facilitated by Mr. Brett A. Scudder, Suicide Attempt Survivor and our Behavioral Health and Crisis Response Director/Trainer. Mr. Scudder attempted suicide as he struggled with emotional pain, addiction, depression, loneliness and giving up on life from the challenges, pain and losses he experienced.

He will be presenting signs of addiction, depression, loneliness, suicide, emotional pain, and subliminal messages of early and late stages of pain that we often hear but never understand what they mean. He will also address the ways emotional pain can affect our lives causing distress, depression, addiction, abuse, health complications, isolation, loneliness, self-harm, reckless behaviors and disabilities, and how to manage, cope, recover and heal when the heart is hurting from the pain, the mind is struggling with the pain, and the body is trying to keep up to manage all that is happening. It can be hard to stay focused and productive in and under distress/duress from emotional pain and depression, so what do you do, who do you turn to, and how to seek help, or not to alleviate it will be critical to saving one’s life and minimizing impacts of the pain. Mr. Scudder has lived through these experiences and know of them quite intimately in how they can impact the overall human experience, life, social status and well-being. Not all trauma has or can cause emotional pain, and so his focus is on the emotional pain that triggers abuse, depression, violence and suicide ideation and the Emotional Pain Informed Care he promotes to address it effectively.

The human experiences of emotional pain and heartbreaks impacts affects everyone in different ways and on different levels that are sometimes overlooked in understanding and diagnosing root cause of physical aches and pains we feel. Too often we expect people to just snap out of their pain and get on with life because it sometimes scares us when seeing how they are affected by it and wanting to “fix’ them. This isn’t as simple as we would like it to be. We can’t “fix” people, nor should we expect them to just snap out of an emotionally painful experience that may have traumatized them leaving them crippled, disabled and feeling helpless without Love and viable support. They can’t express their pain in ways that may be comfortable and articulate, proper, manner able to our comfort and needs. Emotional pain cannot be medicated like physical pain, and so when a person is experiencing it their entire body can hurt from the top of their head to bottom of their feet and taking pain meds still doesn’t ease the inner turmoil they are experiencing. Hurt people hurt people when they don’t understand, can control or don’t care who or why they are hurting others because their pain is more than they can understand or manage. The pain can break and stress you out in disabling ways.

There are many high functioning depressed people who are very good at their jobs and the work they do, but at the end of the day goes home to suffer and struggle with/in their emotional pain and distress with no Love, support and care. They deny being depressed because of fear of what people will think, say and feel about them. They deny being depressed because they don’t understand what depression and the associated moods and conditions really are. They deny being depressed because they think it’s ok to live and feel like that. The stigmas about mental health and mental illness forces many people into denial and hiding because they can’t or don’t want to face the truth about their conditions. This is not a healthy way for anyone to live and shouldn’t be afraid of their truth. They say, the truth shall set you free, but, in the case of mental and emotional pain, can be very paralyzing and disabling to one’s ability to live with it if you don’t know how to.

Let’s come together to learn, embrace and heal so we are not retraumatizing and revictimizing each other when in pain, but help them cope and overcome it. Join us to learn safe tips to help our loved ones and ourselves cope with life during crisis and distress. So many people are existing 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.

At the end of the day, the person in pain is living an experience of discomfort on many levels and often times their actions are to ease the pain or cope with it. So before we judge people for what we see them do or are doing, let's take a step back, take a deep breath, and ask, how are you.
No one should ever have to suffer alone or in silence from/with Emotional Pain. Find out more about Emotional Pain Informed Care at emotionalpaininformedcare.com.

YOU Are Not Alone Unless YOU Want To Be. Feel free to share as needed. Attendees must RSVP at sisfi.eventbrite.com. Please share with your networks and join in the educational empowerment of the effort.

Thank you very much and have a great day one breath at a time and embrace and enjoy it. We apprecilove your patronage and look forward to serving you with more quality humane, health, psychological and emotional programs, services and resources. One Love.

The Scudder Intervention Services Foundation, Inc. 'SISFI', The Suicide Institute, Bronx Suicide Network, NYC Suicide Council and our Partners invites you to our annual Bronx boroughwide “A Mind Free Of/From Suicide Day” on June 8th 2019 to collectively unify in normalizing the conversation and experiences of addiction, depression, loneliness, trauma and suicide for all Bronxites as well as promote mental health services for the conditions. For the past five years we have seen a significant increase in suicide cases here in The Bronx than other boroughs and we attribute that to a number of life challenges, cultural factors and social economics. We are asking everyone to join in the effort wherever they are, at home, school, work, church and in the general public to let this day be known as a safe day of humanizing the experiences of people who are struggling, suffering, hurting and hiding because of it without judgment, labels or prejudice.

We have created attached promo posters to help spread the unified message so people can use them in their environments as needed and not have to worry about creating something. If you want to create your own posters with the message that’s fine as long as it sticks to the theme. More posters will be available leading up to the day. We are gathering on the Event Lawn located on Crotona Avenue and Claremont Parkway from 10am-3pm for those who want to come out and join us in the public’s eye for the effort. We are inviting providers, agencies and community based-orgs to table and promote support services and resources so people can walk away with tangible solutions and resources.

Please RSVP at sisfi.eventbrite.com to confirm your attendance and support. We are seeking donation of 500 bottled water and juices for the event so please contact us at 917.651.1889 if interested in donating them.

Last year over 200 organizations participated in the NYC Mind Free Of/From Suicide Day and this year we’re doing one specifically for The Bronx due to having the highest cases in all five boroughs. This year’s NYC Day will be July 20th again and we look forward to having you with us in support of the efforts. Please share and help promote it.

Thank you very much and have a great day one breath at a time and embrace and enjoy it. We apprecilove your patronage and look forward to serving you with more quality humane, health, psychological and emotional programs, services and resources. One Love.

Technology and social media taking over our hearts/minds/lives with terrifying realities. A mom found videos on YouTube Kids that gave children instructions for #suicide. Let's make this viral so more people can know of/about it and safeguard our children from all angles. This is a hard reality that we overlook too often to realize the real impacts and effects. Thank You. #IAmBrettless #Suicideologist #Emotionologist #TheSuicideNetwork #OneLove

A mom found videos on YouTube Kids that gave children instructions for #suicide. Most parents feel pretty safe letting their children watch YouTube Kids, the child-friendly version of the video platform. But disturbing videos recently found by some moms show the social media site may not be safe for kids at all. A Florida mother said she has found clips on YouTube and YouTube Kids that gave children instructions on how to kill themselves.

Free Hess said the first time she saw such a video was back in July when another mom alerted her to it after she and her son were watching cartoon videos on YouTube Kids. Spliced in the middle of one of the videos was footage of a man in sunglasses telling children how to slit their wrists.

But this month she saw the video again, this time on YouTube. Once again, after the video was flagged by her and others, it took a couple of days for YouTube to pull it, said Hess, who has been writing about the issue on her parenting blog.

"It makes me angry and sad and frustrated," Hess told CNN. "I'm a pediatrician, and I'm seeing more and more kids coming in with self harm and suicide attempts. I don't doubt that social media and things such as this is contributing."

But that's not all she said she found. When Hess went to YouTube Kids and started exploring the site, what she saw there shocked her. She said she found videos glorifying not only suicide but sexual exploitation and abuse, human trafficking, gun violence and domestic violence. One video, inspired by the popular "Minecraft" video game, even depicted a school shooting.

Heads up people. Let's make this viral. It is very serious.

Thank You,

~Brett A. Scudder
