HMONG GRANT: Eau Claire Healthy Communities is the recipient of a $10,000 minigrant from Security Health Plan of Wisconsin. The award will focus on mental health needs in the Hmong community.

The Mental Health Action Team of Eau Claire Healthy Communities is partnering with Eau Claire Area Hmong Mutual Assistance Association to provide educational sessions and trainings to members of the Hmong community and health care providers about how to approach conversations about mental health in the Hmong community.

Recent community events have indicated the need for education on this issue. Earlier this year, Wisconsin United Coalition of Mutual Assistance Associations hosted a legislative dialogue about the current status of Hmong health in the Eau Claire community. Mental health emerged as the top health focus area of concern for the Hmong community.

Wisconsin holds the nations third largest Hmong population, with a very high concentration residing in the western region of the state.

Wisconsin Hmong have previously indicated that their biggest barriers to receiving any type of health care treatment were language and low literacy.

Mental health providers in the Eau Claire area report low number of Hmong that receive mental health services. Services are sought out only when individuals are in crisis.

A 2008 assessment of mental health needs in the Eau Claire Hmong Community indicated a low level of mental health literacy and that education is needed to understand mental health/mental wellness.

Meditation Proven to Reduce Anxiety and Depression

Posted: at 4:45 pm


Malibu, CA (PRWEB) January 22, 2014

A new study that examined the effectiveness of using meditation to improve stress-related medical outcomes was published January 6th in JAMA Internal Medicine. The research showed that although the benefits were moderate, psychological stress across multiple categories including anxiety, depression, and pain was diminished through the use of meditation.

The type that appeared to provide the greatest benefit mindful meditation highlights the importance of accepting thoughts and feelings without judgment, as well as relaxing ones body and mind. The concluding remarks of the study recommended that physicians prepare themselves to talk with their patients about the role that a meditation program could have in addressing psychological stress.

The study included 47 trials across a diverse range of clinical populations, including more than 3,500 participants. The evidence was graded using four criteria including risk of bias, precision, directness, and consistency.

At Passages, our holistic treatment professionals have offered mindfulness meditation as a part of our treatment program since we first began working with clients in 2001, said Pax Prentiss, CEO of Passages Addiction Treatment Centers. For many years, weve seen the benefits of progressive therapeutic options, in addition to the more traditional practices like chemical dependency counseling and psychotherapy.

At Passages Malibu - Addiction Ends Here

About Passages Malibu & Passages Ventura:

Father and son team Chris and Pax Prentiss founded Passages Malibu in 2001. Its second location, Passages Ventura, first opened its doors in 2009. The two drug & alcohol abuse treatment centers offer an alternative to the 12 step/AA model of addiction treatment by utilizing a holistic program that focuses on the underlying issues of substance dependency, rather than attributing addiction to an incurable disease.

Both Passages Malibu and Passages Ventura accept insurance and each have earned the coveted Joint Commission (JCAHO) accreditation, which has only been given to 6% of the nations behavioral health treatment programs.

Passages Malibu was named the #1 treatment center in the world by Healthcare Global, one of the "Most Luxurious Places to Dry Out" by Forbes magazine, and the Huffington Post recently acknowledged Passages as a center that caters to a high-end crowd, with many CEOs, entrepreneurs and high-powered professionals among its clients.

Province’s longevity title lies ahead

The toughest thing about becoming the oldest person ever born in Manitoba? You keep losing good bridge partners.

That's what Lorna Best -- who has called Victoria, B.C., home for more than 30 years but was born and lived the first eight decades of her life in Gilbert Plains -- said on Tuesday as she talked about the highs and lows of her more than 110 years of life.

Best will be tied on Jan. 30 with the official oldest person ever to be born in Manitoba, Mary Ann Scoles, who died on July 23, 2007, at the age of 110 years and 210 days.

The next day, Best, who was born on July 4, 1903, will take over the title as the oldest person ever born here.

"I didn't know that," said Best during a telephone interview from the personal-care home she lives in now.

"It's news to me."

Best said at her age it's birthday celebrations and other family occasions that are the most memorable days, not where she ranks on the longevity list.

Best was the first child born to Charles and Edra Warren in the family home in Gilbert Plains. She was later joined by four brothers and two sisters. Her father had moved from England to become a farmer, but after a few unsuccessful attempts, he decided to become the village's secretary-treasurer in 1921.

The real health care crisis

Posted: at 4:44 pm


PARIS, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- At Davos in the Swiss Alps this week, the bankers and thinkers and business leaders who constitute the Amen Corner of globalization will be addressing the implications of longevity and demographics.

One leading issue, already alarming politicians and officials in countries, is what this means for health costs. There are 32 countries in the world where life expectancy has risen to more than 80 years. By the end of this decade, more than 50 counties expect to face a similar tidal wave of elderly people.

The conventional wisdom is that longevity will be so expensive that it threatens to bankrupt public spending and private savings. Good recent data from Canada suggest that average health costs per age group break down as follows:

Age 1-64 $4,050

Age 75-79 $11,200

Age 80+ $17,600

Data from the United Kingdom are particularly useful because the single-payer system of the National Health Service covers everybody. The latest figures suggests that over-65s in the United Kingdom visit their doctor seven times a year, on average, while those aged 16-44 do so four times a year. The over-65s account for two-thirds of general and acute hospital bed use, even though they are only 16 percent of the population.

In the United States, spending on over-65s was more than three times the figure for those of working age. Almost universally, spending per head on health grows slowly until age of 55 when it escalates rapidly, frequently tripling by the age of 80.

But to take this at face value and conclude that the elderly are the problem would be to make a mistake. The data also reveal that the problem is that the nature of medical care is changing. Traditionally, medicine dealt with acute problems, like a broken limb or a sudden illness, fixed the ailment and the patient usually returned to normal life.

Increasingly, however, medicine is dealing with chronic problems that go on for years. Illnesses are more and more being managed rather than cured.

Mugabe Attributes Longevity To The Grace Of God

Posted: at 4:44 pm


ZVIMBA, Zimbabwe, Jan 22 (BERNAMA-NNN-NEW ZIANA) -- Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe says he does not know the secret to long life and his longevity is the grace of God.

Following his continued absence from the public glare, the rumour mill had again started treading that President Mugabe, who is still on his annual leave, was seriously ill while others went as far as claiming that he had died.

Mugabe was last seen in public in late December last year.

"Do not ask, how come you have lived this long yet you are older? I do not know how I have lived this long, it is all in God's hands," he said.

Mugabe, who has outlived his five siblings who have all passed on, turns 90 next month.

In a speech that lasted over an hour and focused mainly on his family's life his first major speech this year following the death of his sister, Bridget, Mugabe told mourners how his father had settled in Zvimba, nearly 100 kilometres west of the capital, Harare.

He threw in some jokes during the speech which saw mourners bursting into laughter.

Mugabe described his late sister as an academic. "Sabina (his late elder sister) was self-reliant and Bridget was less self-reliant," he said.

He applauded local doctors for doing their very best to take care of his sister until she breathed her last.

Mugabe also thanked his party, Zanu PF, for declaring Bridget a liberation war heroine.
