HI everyone, here is the latest video that I did with Tania Rose, about my SEMPI Social Communication Model. I talk here in depth about some of my views on how we, as a community can change stigma around mental health, and then we go through and check in with each other, by asking, 'How is Your SEMPI?' This exercise enabled us to gain a deeper perspective of how we were feeling holistically, right in that moment.
Thanks for watching, Alyse.
HUGE THANKS to Tom Hubbard, aka @kcwarthog for talking to me today on SEMPI Real Conversations, Instagram Live. Tom is an American Airforce Veteran, formerly of A-10 Warthog, and was the Crew Chief. Tom is also a creative director, a graphic designer, an amazing family man, mental health advocate, warrior, and an amazing artist! Today we talked about how PTSD is seen as a silent disease, even though it is in epidemic proportions among our returning soldiers, as well as ways to work through to better management of the symptoms, stigma reduction, and then we go through 'How's Your SEMPI' together.
