Allagash contracts directly with WellSpace@Work and thus enables its workers to gain fast, confidential access to our staff who are nearby, available and a good match for a given employee’s issue.”

— Lindy Graham, LCSW and founder of WellSpace Maine

PORTLAND, MAINE, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2020 / — Allagash Brewing Company, which ranks among the best companies to work for in Maine, has recently launched a pilot program designed to make mental health counseling services more accessible to its workforce.

The program was announced jointly by Allagash and WellSpace@Work, a newly formed division of WellSpace Maine, a Portland-based mental health counseling practice.

In a statement, Celine Frueh, Allagash’s Human Resources Directory, said, “We are collectively experiencing the most stressful experience of our lives during the COVID pandemic at Allagash and throughout the world,” Our team is our number one priority, and essential to our surviving the pandemic. We wanted to put additional support in place for this fall/winter, ensuring that if anyone on the Allagash team wanted support for stress-related issues, they would be able to access it readily. With respect to mental health counseling, there are two general obstacles: finding a therapist, and affording the cost. By partnering with WellSpace@Work, and Allagash paying 100% of the cost, we were able to remove both of those barriers. What we hope to be a lasting effect of this partnership and increased education about mental health is totally normalizing the need for support on this front and removing stigmas about treating mental health challenges as they arise.”

Lindy Graham, a licensed clinical social worker who has been practicing in Portland since 2007 and who began growing WellSpace Maine in 2010, stated, “Through this program, Allagash contracts directly with WellSpace@Work and thus enables its workers to gain fast, and very importantly, confidential access to our staff who are nearby, available, and, a good match for a given employee’s particular issue due to careful upfront assessment. Our therapists know the Maine culture well—something we have found to be important to the employers currently considering Allagash-type programs with us”.

She explained that WellSpace@Work is paid on a fee-for-service basis for a variable, but finite, number of sessions which are carried out at this time via secure telehealth appointments but, post pandemic, will be offered on an in-person basis.

For Allagash, WellSpace@Work has set up a dedicated client-service unit and phone line to smooth the administrative process. It is also providing virtual mental health educational support through “lunch and learn” programs. Thus far, it has conducted a webinar on seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and managing the demands of work and children’s remote learning needs. Other webinars on substance use, parenting babies and toddlers in the pandemic, mindfulness, and healthy eating are in the offing.


About WellSpace Maine:

WellSpace Maine, which has offices in Portland and Yarmouth, provides counseling services for children, adolescents, families and couples. It also offers custom-designed counseling programs for employers through WellSpace@Work, as well as a professional training program for clinicians interested in deepening their practice.

Children with Autism at High Risk of Death from Epilepsy

Autism Parenting Magazine logo

Autism Parenting Magazine is raising awareness of links between epilepsy and autism

Autism Parenting Magazine is raising awareness of research showing autistic children are more likely to die from epileptic seizures than the general population.

If more autism parents are supported to spot differences in their child’s usual ‘ASD behaviors’ and given access to the right treatment, there is potential for lives to be saved.”

— Mark Blakey

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, November 18, 2020 / — Children with autism are more likely to die from epileptic seizures compared to the general population. Autism Parenting Magazine (APM) is on a mission to raise awareness of this fact following the tragic death of a reader’s son.

Research reveals individuals with ASD (autism spectrum disorder) generally die 18 years younger than people without autism, and people with an intellectual disability in addition to autism die 30 years younger than most, with epilepsy being their main mortality risk.

There is also a higher mortality rate and rate of disease associated with seizures in ASD than in seizures experienced by neurotypical people.

A grieving mom told APM she had “no idea seizures are a leading cause of death for people with autism” and called for more public information about links between epilepsy and ASD. In response, APM has published an article titled Autism and Epilepsy: Are Autistic Children at Higher Risk of Seizures?, which examines the facts and helps parents spot the warning signs.

Mark Blakey, Founder of Autism Parenting Magazine, said: “It’s difficult to spot epilepsy in people with ASD as many symptoms of seizures are similar to typical autism behaviors – this could even be one reason for the higher death rate. If more autism parents are supported to spot differences in their child’s usual ‘ASD behaviors’ and given access to the right treatment, there is potential for lives to be saved.”

Typical autism behaviors which mirror symptoms of seizures include: repetitive purposeless behaviors, cognitive delay, impaired social interactions, aggression, and irritability. Among the tips included in APM’s article are: watching ASD children for staring episodes, stiffening, rhythmic shaking, and loss of attention. You can read the full article here.

Fostering New York’s Children During a Global Pandemic

report of the responses generated by the non-profit organization’s 2020 Foster Parents’ Survey.

The Adoptive and Foster Family Coalition of New York (AFFCNY)


Report finds one third of New York’s foster parents struggling with lost jobs/pay cuts due to pandemic.

A significant number of foster families reported not being able to meet their children's needs with current New York State foster care subsidies.”


NEW YORK, NEW YORK , USA, November 18, 2020 / — The Adoptive and Foster Family Coalition of New York (AFFCNY)has published “Fostering New York’s Children During a Global Pandemic” a report of the responses generated by the non-profit organization’s 2020 Foster Parents’ Survey.

Released to the public on November 18, 2020, the report is the result of a months-long effort by the state’s adoptive and foster parent association, AFFCNY, to capture the economic and racial profiles of the foster families caring for the state’s most vulnerable children. The survey also provided a unique window where parents could have their voices heard and share details about the personal challenges facing their families and the children in their care during a global pandemic.

A total of 656 foster parents responded, reporting significant impacts on their economic status as a result of COVID-19 and the current levels of state subsidies. Among other alarming results one third of foster families are struggling with lost jobs and/or pay cuts due to the pandemic, close to one fifth of the respondents statewide reported that one or both foster parents lost jobs due to COVID-19 and over sixteen percent reported that one or both parents had taken a pay cut due to COVID-19. Additionally, racial backgrounds of both foster families and the children they serve were gathered, providing a realistic picture of the states’ extremely diverse foster families.

Funded and designed by the organization, renowned adoption researcher, Madelyn Freundlich, volunteered her time and expertise to author the report. The survey was comprised of closed-ended questions on demographic backgrounds, experience, the economic impact and housing status as well as an open-ended comment. The qualitative data was analyzed through coding commentary into key themes that tell tales of families facing job loss and loss of income, increased expenses, extended court processes, and increased family separations. The report tells tales of families’ frustrations with marked decreases in support services as well as the families’ remarkable degree of resilience.

“We have bonded more as a family and also have been able to work together to address many of the issues…. that have made a resurgence. We’ve had the luxury of time together to address whatever arises and find a solution together,” commented one foster family.

Initially distributed from August 6, 2020 through September 30, 2020, the data collection period was extended until October 10, 2020 to capture additional responses from New York City foster parents. As New York City families were underrepresented in comparison to the rest of the state when the initial results were tabulated, a targeted outreach to New York City foster parents included partnering with the New York City Administration of Children’s Services for survey distribution. In the end, respondents represented all New York State counties with almost one-quarter (23.3%) of the respondents residing in New York City. Statewide, three quarters (75.5%) of respondents reported being active foster parents, with the remaining respondents reporting previously fostering and then adopting children from foster care. Preliminary research indicates that this is the largest statewide survey specifically targeting foster parents.

AFFCNY’s commitment to families caring for the most vulnerable children in New York State has not wavered during the pandemic. After immediately shifting all support services to virtual platforms, Coalition families have been able to consistently find help through AFFCNY affiliated groups, online trainings and the HelpLine as well as the newly created online support community. Data collected in early summer 2020 indicated a definitive shift in the needs of the families served. For the first time ever, respite and advocacy appeared as the most requested services sought by parents through the HelpLine. Given these results, AFFCNY made the decision to survey foster parents to document the experiences of the New Yorkers who continued to volunteer to bring children into their homes and families during a pandemic.

“It is always our mission and intention to use any information we gather to support and advocate for families in NYS, so knowing the direct needs of families and the challenges they face, helps us provide better support services at the Coalition,” states Pat O’Brien, Executive Director.

The published report is available to the public on the Coalition’s website, Foster parents contributed 497 comments that described their experiences in parenting children during the ongoing pandemic and a great majority were open to be contacted for further information and to schedule interviews.

About the Adoptive and Foster Family Coalition of New York
Incorporated in 1975, the Coalition unites foster, adoptive and kinship care families, giving them a voice and providing support, information and advocacy. By fostering communication and collaboration between families, agencies and concerned citizens, we seek to ensure the stability, well-being and permanency of all children. Our vision is that no foster, adoptive or kinship care family in New York State will feel alone or unsupported and that all such families will have the tools, support and community they need to nurture their children and be role models for others.

Dr Vidhya on escaping lockdown limbo and resetting your mental thermostat

Dr Vidhya – London


Dr Vidhya Kumaranayakam

LONDON, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, November 10, 2020 / — The coronavirus pandemic has shaken up all of our lives, and particularly those of the most vulnerable amongst us. Dr Vidhya Kumaranayakam, a GP and High Performance Success Coach, knows this more than most, working as she does with victims of domestic violence and those struggling with their mental health. With Covid-19 cases once again on the rise, our situation as it stands looks to be the start of a new normal. But Dr Vidhya doesn’t want those who are overwhelmed to feel there’s no end in sight to their distress. Her work looks to transform the mindsets of her clients, giving them unshakeable confidence that will help them to thrive no matter the circumstances. Her Diamond Success Mindset courses exist to serve everyone from young mothers to seven-figure CEOs, and use manifestation, subconscious mind reprogramming and neuroscience to help them reset their mental thermostats.

Unshakeable confidence stems from a bulletproof mindset, and Dr Vidhya has seen what these two things can do for people. It keeps them safe while they work on strengthening their mental, physical, spiritual and financial foundations, ready for the new world that is emerging. With lockdown restrictions keeping us all in limbo, such a foundation is necessary for those who want to power through the coming months, no matter what comes their way. Helping her clients to reflect on the pillars of their lives, Dr Vidhya then uses her proven H.E.A.R.T. system (which stands for Healing, Empowerment, Awakening and Awareness, Rising, and Thriving) to help them correct their course in life, rebuild after trauma, and manifest the life they want to live, in spite of the ongoing pandemic and recession.

She employs a range of techniques drawn from her backgrounds in medicine, coaching, entrepreneurship and parenting, in order to best help each individual. These include chakra and aura healing, affirmations and visualisations, as well as law of attraction and success coaching, which she learned under the tutelage of renowned speaker and coach Bob Proctor. All these things combined offer her clients the best chance possible of blasting through their fears and anxieties. They can even help people beat the “nocebo effect”, which is what happens when a person’s physical health suffers due to negative thinking adversely affecting their mind-body-spirit connection. Dr Vidhya has seen such cases on the rise in recent months, but her work will help to prevent it from becoming a pandemic in its own right. She says: “the power is within you and it’s time to take it back. Let me show you how.”

This is the truth about Trump.

Wisdom Education is Brain Health Education; Where Wisdom Land is a Start...

Our Education System Has Cutting Edge Mind Education While Brain Education Is Under the radar Screen.

Emotional health is the panacea for a wise America.

Emotional intelligence comes from emotional health.

We must define & act on the main problem, we talk of health and yet ignore emotional health, the very foundation of health, happiness, education, & prosperity.

Biden-Harris team pl., prove my plan wrong or show a better plan, otherwise, please adopt my plan to transform America from being an emotionally challenged country into an emotional health superpower.”

— Sajid Khan

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, November 7, 2020 / — Dear Biden-Harris Team: I need a big favor please review my formula to improve education, health, society, prosperity, relationships, etc. Please prove me wrong, or show me a better plan or use my plan as your own. Please get in touch with me.

Our social standards are only getting worse. It is all because we have cutting-edge mind education and as a result civilization in terms of infrastructure is improving. Brain education that ensures emotional health is ignored and messed up and as a result, our emotional health and thus our social health is messed up.

The Biden-Harris team is very great at fishing out problems and providing solutions but even they are missing the fundamental cause of our social and emotional mess and thus missing the one silver bullet solution that will solve America's mother of all problems.

Before America got away with lots of economic blunders but now we are running on printing unsupported dollars and so our decline will only hasten. There is still time to come out with a thriving America if we focus on emotional health.

Here is my formula:

Here is my hypothesis:

My silver bullet solution is all about upbringing through wise parenting:…/how-we-figured-out-wisdom...

I have simple tricks to solve our many problems.

Here is a banner I displayed for four days at the earlier Cleveland Republican convention.

The reason why I have published hundreds of blogs, comments and articles from day one of Trump announcing the run for the White House is to explain that Trump is unfit to be president. Thankfully we have made sure Trump is not voted in once again. Trump is emotionally challenged and just as I had predicted he has made a mess of everything especially the handling of the corona response. It is estimated that his rallies alone have caused the spread of the virus to over 70,000 people and has caused 700 deaths.

We have paid a heavy price by putting insanity in the White House. But the storm is over and the calm dawn has come. The experiencing of Trump's insanity on full display should and must still be a priceless lesson, that will transform America from an emotionally challenged country into a thriving emotional health superpower. Our leaders and experts must wake up to the fact that Trump is the symbol in chief of America being an emotionally challenged country by far. This #1 problem of the neglect of emotional health is under the radar screen of our leaders and experts. Our experts are to blame. They misdefine emotional health as mental health when these are two separate though overlapping entities.

The second and even more essential reason is to make our experts and leaders take action on the fact that Trump is just the symbol in chief of America's #1 problem; America is an emotionally challenged country by far. Our society is a mess because our emotional health is a mess as there is no focus on emotional health. Emotional health is misdefined as mental health; even when these are separate entities. The Social Progress Institute that has several Nobel Prize winners is now asking for similar action. They are even saying that our social decline has accelerated due to Trump's incompetence.

I have worked for the Democratic ticket by publishing hundreds of comments in the NY Times, and social media exposing Trump's insanity. I have made bumper stickers, hats, and t-shirts. I have even produced songs for the Biden-Harris Team. I have mailed samples to your Philadelphia headquarters and handed some samples to several of your offices.

There are over 40,000 books on wisdom and yet one makes us wise. I have explained wisdom in one 3 minute song: I made this song for you to play at your rallies.

I have demonstrated at Trump Tower and at Trump rallies with banners. I have even tried to sue Trump's doctor for giving him a clean bill of health.

I have published several press releases supporting Biden-Harris that were each published in thousands of places. Here is the press release distribution report for the one published on election day:

I am an activist for emotional health and I want to see America transformed from the current emotionally challenged country into an emotional health superpower.

Please take my plan as your own.

Natalie Whatcott and Sarah Sanders of Utah Behavior Services to be Featured on Close Up Radio

Natalie Whatcott

Rachal Green

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, UNITED STATES, November 6, 2020 / — Family is the cornerstone of society where we acquire a wonderful sense of belonging, acceptance, and our deepest connections. Research suggests that children who are valued members of a family unit develop a healthier sense of well-being creating positive impact on their social behaviors and success later in life. But even the healthiest families go through tough times that can affect the entire family structure. Whether conflicts result from behavioral or mental health concerns when families are in crisis there is a way to work through it. Quality therapy can make all the difference in the world.

Natalie Whatcott and Sarah Sanders are top notch behavioral health professionals and owners of Utah Behavior Services.

“Our principal philosophy is primarily focused not only on treating individuals but designed to address what impacts families as a whole,” says Sarah. “Whether it’s the children or the adults that are conflicted with emotional or social difficulties we seek to improve communication, and work to resolve behavioral difficulties while offering constructive strategies and the proper tools to help them navigate their lives and strengthen their family relationships.”

Providing a safe, supportive environment and with genuine compassion, the team at Utah Behavior services assist clients in developing coping skills that will help them handle challenges and provide lasting change.

“What distinguishes us the most is recognizing that in a family crisis the entire unit is affected not just one person,” says Natalie. “As a solution focused practice, we thoroughly assess every situation, identify conflict, and then provide the family with the most effective tools and tried and true methods to help improve a wide range of issues the families may be struggling with.”

According to Sarah and Natalie, family therapy and proper parenting is especially critical for children to help work out their problems or any behavioral issues and find solutions.

“In a changing technologically advanced world we have to parent differently,” says Sarah. “Particularly when the kids are struggling it won’t be effective to solely treat the child, everyone in that family has to learn how to do things differently so the change can be long term.”

Family members are encouraged to express thoughts and emotions, understand and respect each other’s point of view, appreciate each other’s individuality, while acquiring an enhanced sense of connection.

“Recognizing our children’s strengths and understanding their weaknesses is absolutely critical,” says Natalie.

In these times of COVID-19 and stay at home orders, Natalie and Sarah say more time together can prove beneficial for families. It’s about taking the opportunity to communicate more openly and learn how to make compromises. It’s all about choice.

“Our clients are the are the heroes of their stories, it’s not about us,” says Sarah. “By learning and applying the skills we provide families acquire a different perspective and then we know we have done our job well.”

The reason Sarah and Natalie are so passionate about their work is their belief that supporting families as a whole is the key to achieving lasting change for any child or individual.

“It’s uplifting to know that in these challenging moments our family is our most vital resource,” says Natalie. “By embracing one another’s differences, diversity helps us bond and respect each other and resolve conflicts.”

By seeing strengths in each other and learning the right skills what develops are healthier happier family members and what we need in order to have a well- functioning family.

“Remember who you are, stick by your values, and most of all be kind to one another and you can never go wrong.” says Natalie.

Close Up Radio will feature Sarah Sanders and Natalie Whatcott in an interview with Jim Masters on Thursday July 23rd at 3 p.m. with Jim Masters
