Forum of Experts Envisions Mental Health System Transformation

Forum of Experts Envisions Mental Health System Transformation










Hudson, OH (PRWEB) May 27, 2006

Experts from throughout Northeast Ohio gathered Wednesday, May 3rd to create a roadmap for a transformed regional mental health system. The forum brought together over 60 leaders of state, regional, local and community mental health organizations to discuss the direction of mental health services in Northeast Ohio. The forum concluded with next steps to improve the region’s mental health systems.

“We’ve gathered experts to help identify the first steps in transforming the mental health system in Northeast Ohio,” said Suzanne Morgan, Chairman of the Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation. “Professionals in the mental health field have a real passion for the work they’re doing and we want to tap into that passion.”

The featured speakers were Dr. Michael Hogan, Director of the Ohio Department of Mental Health, and Justice Evelyn Stratton of the Ohio Supreme Court. Dr. Hogan served as the chairman of President Bush’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health. He gave a presentation on the “A New Day” initiative for mental health in Ohio. The New Day initiative is a system of integrated services and collaboration across medical, social and mental health care disciplines, designed to make recovery and resiliency possible for those suffering from mental illness.

“We’ve come so far in the last 25 years in providing treatment, motivation, and support to consumers,” said Dr. Hogan. “Recovery and resiliency are now expected outcomes, but the system is still highly decentralized. We need to build bridges to cooperate and collaborate.”

Justice Stratton described her experiences with the intersecting mental health and criminal justice systems. She has assembled a grassroots organization of over 50 community members, working together to make a difference in the mental health system. She challenged participants to collaborate and cooperate, set aside territory distinctions, assign tasks and deadlines at every meeting, and keep the goal in mind.    

“I’ve been working in the criminal justice system for years, and unfortunately I see the same scenario time after time,” said Justice Stratton. “Someone with an undiagnosed mental illness is sentenced to jail for committing a crime. While serving the sentence, the inmate is diagnosed as schizophrenic. Then years later, they’re released with $ 75 and two weeks’ worth of medication. My group is working to improve the resources they have access to so they won’t end up back in the criminal justice system.”

The Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation hosted the forum as the first step to mental health system transformation. The Foundation was founded in 2001 in Hudson, Ohio as a private, grant-making foundation serving mental health, education, and arts causes in Northeast Ohio.

Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) December 31, 2007

Just in time to allow people to truly succeed in their New Year’s resolutions, Tara Meyer-Robson, author of The Flow: 40 Days to Total Life Transformation and creator of The Flow System, announces the launch of her new 40 Day Transformation Challenge. Designed to help every person finally succeed in their goals for 2008, the Transformation Challenge truly breaks new ground with its revolutionary approach.

Whether an individual desires a better love life, more success and prosperity, better health and wellbeing, improved physical fitness, breaking negative habits, or any other personal goal or dream, the 40 Day Transformation Challenge will allow participants to have everything necessary to finally achieve the life of their dreams.

“There is no reason for anyone to feel like a failure or to not succeed in their personal goals in 2008. The Flow System helps people identify the real reason for their issues – which is always negative thoughts and beliefs – and then takes each person through a comprehensive, totally personalized process that assures that each individual will succeed in achieving their goals – whatever their goals are,” Tara Meyer-Robson says, “The Flow 40 Day Transformation Challenge provides all the tools necessary for anyone to succeed in any New Year’s resolutions they might have.”

As part of the 40 Day Transformation Challenge, participants will be guided by the ground-breaking Flow System, which features two revolutionary tests that will take each participant through the process of creating a completely individualized action plan that works for the way that each person thinks and learns new information. The first test is the ”Flow Factor Test,” which identifies in which of seven areas of life, or ”Stations,” the participant has negative underlying programming that is causing him or her repetitive patterns, difficulty, or disease. Based on the participant’s test results, he or she is directed to specific workbook sections designed to identify which beliefs are causing the issues, understand where they came from, and be given a specific ‘retuning statement’ to retune the participant’s mind and life into the life of his or her dreams.

The second test, called the ”Reality Type Test,” identifies how each participant learns new information in the easiest way. Using these test results coupled with the specific retuning statements chosen by the participant, he or she will choose four ”Reality Type” exercises to do for 40 days (called the ”4 for 40”), thus retuning the individual’s mind into the life that is desired – and breaking the negative habits, patterns, and issues that have been an ongoing problem, possibly for an entire lifetime.

“The 4 for 40 program is the cornerstone of the system because it allows people to custom-design an action plan that is not only suited to their particular issues, it is also designed to use their personal strengths to make life-transformation simple for the individual,” author Tara Meyer-Robson reveals, “After all, your mind doesn’t work the same way as anyone else’s, so shouldn’t your personal improvement program be designed in a way that works just for you?”

The result of this completely personalized system is that each participant will feel like there is a life, success, and wellness coach working with him or her to create a custom-designed program that truly works.

By signing up for the challenge on December 31st or January 1st, participants will be given access to not only the ground-breaking Flow System, but will also be given free online support, e-books, weekly motivational pod casts, and much more, allowing the perfect support environment to keep participants motivated to succeed. Further, the system makes everything so simple, participants will be able to do all of the exercises without disrupting their normal daily routine. Backed by years of research, this challenge and The Flow System is certain to help anyone succeed in making 2008 the life of their dreams!
