The registered nurses at Premier Personal Care and CNA Institute don’t just tend to the healthcare needs of the sick. They also care for and educate anyone with a new diagnosis and counsel them in the best ways to manage their conditions. That might mean discussing dietary strategies with someone dealing with diabetes or composing a sonnet about proper inhaler usage for someone with asthma. As a group, they take a holistic approach to care, focusing on the overall wellbeing of each patient from disease prevention to disease treatment.
The story of Mental Health America is a story of hope and transformation. In the year 1900, a young man named Clifford W. Beers suffered an acute breakdown brought on by the death of his brother, and after an unsuccessful suicide attempt, was hospitalized in a private Connecticut mental institution. There, he faced degrading and inhumane abuses at the hands of the untrained staff. Over the next decade, Beers was confined in a number of hospitals, all in brutal conditions. Bruised—literally—but unbroken, Beers began to overcome his tribulations in 1908 with the publication of his autobiography, A Mind That Found Itself. The next year, he founded the organization that would become Mental Health America. Perhaps the starkest symbol of Mental Health America's metamorphic character is the Mental Health Bell, a 300-pound carillon forged from the melted-down chains and shackles once commonplace in mental institutions.
Today, Mental Health America consists of a network of 240 affiliates working to address mental health conditions. The organization lives up to its mission of "promoting mental health, preventing mental disorders, and achieving victory over mental illness" through a number of programs, including health-care reform advocacy programs. Mental Health America has been combating mental health conditions and their associated stigmas for more than a century, and will continue to do so.
For more than 15 years, the full-time staff at Heart to Heart Introductions has been playing Cupid with a dating database that now holds upward of 24,000 members. Approximately 85% of that romantic melting pot is made up of busy professionals who don't have the time or patience for typical meeting spots, such as bars, coffee shops, or traffic circles. The team creates each member's personal profile based on phone and in-office interviews and then sends them off to other members that match their personality and preferences. When interests are mutually piqued, the staff sets up dates or provides members with each other's digits, using feedback from how the dates go to instruct future matches. When sparks are absent, the process starts over again, with new profiles and pictures sent every two days. The love luminaries help increase the chances of a successful first date by offering tips on proper duds, suitable conversation, and why pretending you invented soccer is bad.
