02:22:53 kvalerio: A theory that rings true to me is that people with mental disorders are drawn to substance abuse for 2 reasons 1) to self medicate 2) people would rather be labeled an adict - or someone who has the potential to recover - if they stop abusing - rather than be labeled "crazy"
Unknown Speaker
00:00
Do you agree?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
02:25:48 eayoung: What can we do in the meantime, especially for those of us who feel that others have it worse, to help ourselves and people we know given extremely limited resources and lack of understanding among people?
Felecia Chriss
02:28:05
What can you do if you a family member who refuses to seek help?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
02:28:44 eayoung: For example, it's one thing to recommend people go to the Counselling Center, but if they get turned away due to lack of availability and whatnot, then what?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
02:28:48 lovanesian: I believe teachers starting from Pre-K who should be trained in identifying mental illness to someone. I understand you can's always be 100% correct, however, kids spend majority of their time in school. As we see from local news everyone says that they felt something was not right. I believe there should always be a follow up or start a conversation. Do you agree.
Gerry Darden
02:30:08
What are suggestions to find local or community resources to get help for self or family member?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
02:31:12 DMiklowitz: The Florida shooter has been labeled "a crazy person," "a nut job," "lunatic;" and that we have to keep guns out of people-like-his hands. This kind of thinking seems to contribute to stigma- how can we get the word out that mentally ill people are generally not violent, and that violence hinges on whether diagnosis and treatment is available?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
02:31:43 lovanesian: I also believe that our education system needs to change, instead of studying about unnessary subjects, health and psycology should be covered at all levels. As you said, it should start from top-down, how do we do that?
Unknown Speaker

02:32:42 skmevans: UC Davis employees have a great resouce in ASAP ( Academic Staff Assistance Program). They will set appointments to see employees and can also assist for supprt for family members of UC Davis employees. I think that is a great place to start for us fortunate enough to work at UC Davis. That is where I would reccomend starting
Unknown Speaker
00:00
02:33:46 skmevans: If you look up ASAP on the UC Davis Website it will take you to their page that lists their number.
