Mental Health in Children WHAT WILL THE AUDIENCE LEARN? ‍EPISODE SUMMARY: The Little Saint Nick Foundation (LSNF) was founded in 2004 by Raymond Mohler, Jr. at age six. Ray suffered from Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease (LCPD) a rare childhood hip disorder found mostly in children between the ages of four to six years old that is initiated by the temporary disruption of blood flow to the femur. Feeling fortunate that he did not have a life-threatening nor permanent disease, but rather one that is treatable and fully recoverable, Ray decided he needed to give back to the kids whom he left behind at the hospital who were not as fortunate as he was. Ray’s mission – even at his young age – was to help relieve the fear, anxiety, and isolation experienced by children related to the child hospital visit and recovery. Over the past 18 years, Ray has become a well-respected youth philanthropist. Ray and LSNF have developed many anxiety-relief programs in conjunction with pediatric hospitals and have successfully changed how kids experience their hospital visits, serving over two-million kids.Website: littlestnick.org  Social Media - Facebook: @littlestnickInstagram: @littlestnick LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/little-saint-nick-foundation/?viewAsMember=trueEPISODE QUOTE: “Not only did this one kid help thousands of kids but he inspired these hundreds of kids give back.”Tune in for this sensible conversation at TalkRadio.nyc or watch the Facebook Livestream by Clicking Here.

HEALING WOUNDED VETERANS THROUGH SAILING - IN ALL WEATHER, IN ALL SEASONS WHAT WILL THE AUDIENCE LEARN?How can you get involved with our mission? Special Guests: Sean Duclay & Kilian DuclayEPISODE SUMMARY:Use sailing and the ocean as a therapeutic platform to foster healing in our military community. It can be easy to believe that the only ones impacted by war are those who travel overseas to fight it. In reality, the impact of war touches the lives of everyone around the soldier or veteran as well. This community includes active duty soldiers, retired veterans, and family members or friends of our fellow citizens in green. Through our events, we aim to connect the sailing and military communities, in order to employ the curative powers of sailing and curb the veteran suicide epidemic.   Spread post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and veteran suicide awareness. The first step to solving any problem is to raise awareness of the cause. We do this through our sailing programs and annual events across the country.Honor and remember Our Mates. We are on the front lines of a war for veterans' mental health at home. Our Mates ensure that the memories of those who lost this battle live on. Carrying Our Mates with us also functions as a physical symbol of just how urgent this crisis is. Website: www.sailahead.orgInstagram: Sailahead219Facebook: SailAhead Linkedin: SailAheadEPISODE QUOTE:Tune in for this sensible conversation at TalkRadio.nyc or watch the Facebook Livestream by Clicking Here.
