International Video Artist Sylvia Toy Publishes Her First e-Book Writing While Manic Based on Her Blog Artist’s Life 101 (Formerly, Do You Want to Buy to Buy My Brain)
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
Sylvia Toy St. Louis began the blog “Do You Want To Buy My Brain” in 2007 as a form of bipolar peer activism because she believes “it’s important for bipolar people to write about ourselves.” WRITING WHILE MANIC (available in the Amazon Kindle Department at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ERVHZME), is a compilation of posts from her blog “Do You Want To Buy My Brain” (2008-2013), which was renamed “Artist’s Life 101″ in 2013 (http://artistslife101.blogspot.com/). Sylvia Toy St. Louis has been an independent peer presenter, using theater (her plays “Do You Want To Buy My Brain,” “JUMP,” and “Jill: Anatomy of A Suicide,” autobiographical solo performance plays about growing up/living bipolar). In 2005, she founded Jump! Theatre Company, which develops and produces professional theater about personal experiences of mental illness. Her experiences showed her that hearing or reading or watching on stage personal accounts of surviving mental illness helps other mentally ill people believe in themselves because of the validation of the experience and survival of mental illness. Sylvia Toy St. Louis also produces the bipolar vlog, Writing While Manic on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCh1GrgcPGCmvlsnMMVam3pw).
Sylvia Toy St. Louis is an actor and videographer. Her portfolio is https://vimeo.com/sylviatoystlouis. She is a YouTube Partner, http://www.youtube.com/user/SylviaToyStLouis. She makes video art and experimental movies composed of scenes that are improvised on camera, mostly in front of a green screen. Her movies range in length from 1 to over 60 minutes and have been screened all over Europe, including Sky Arte HD Television in Italy and in galleries in Paris. She is the sole proprietor of Sylviatoyindustries/Kitchen Scenes Studio in San Francisco. Sylvia Toy St. Louis also was a professional sculptor for many years and her mostly life-sized, handcarved mixed media wooden figures are in collections all over the United States. Sylvia Toy St. Louis’ hobbies are mentoring other artists in social networking/self-promotion and making video documentation of graffiti.

Cloth diapers are a great alternative to disposable diapers. Many people view these diapers and gross, off white, and dangerous because of the pins. Though, they are no longer the stereotypical diapers that people remember from way back when. Many companies have made them into easy, convenient, and baby friendly diapers. There is no more pins. The pins have been replaced with Velcro and snaps, to ensure your child does not get harmed when getting their clothdiapers on. They also now have liners bands around the legs, making it less likely to have leakage from the diaper. These new diapers can have any color, pattern, or print on them. There is such a wide variety. You are able to diaper your child and them look cute in it. Clothdiapers may be something from the past, but they are coming back full force into the homes of new and old mothers alike.
Omaha, NE (PRWEB) September 09, 2013
The 39th annual National Suicide Prevention week is September 8th-14th. Founder of Fresh Hope, Pastor Brad Hoefs, says that this is the perfect time to kick off their national campaign against the hopelessness that all too often accompanies mental disorders and illnesses. Part of this national campaign is the announcement that Mrs. Diana Waggoner will serve as the National Program Director for Fresh Hope.
Mrs. Waggoner will be responsible for developing group and training resources, facilitator training and the ongoing development of Fresh Hope as a national organization.
Diana comes to Fresh Hope from the Kim Foundation. She was the Executive Director of the Kim Foundation for the past 12 years. While at the Kim Foundation, Diana was also the voice of the foundations seven-year radio program, Not Alone. In 2012 Diana received the Recovery Is Real Media Award. She has served for 5 years on the Mental Health Advisory Committee to the Governor for the State of Nebraska.
Fresh Hope groups have begun in other communities in Nebraska and in other states. Weekly, we have contacts from around the nation from individuals and ministries wanting to start Fresh Hope groups in their communities. Recently, we had a request from South Africa. Having Diana on staff full time will enable us to meet those requests as Fresh Hope organically develops on a national level, says Brad Hoefs, Founder and Executive Director of Fresh Hope. Diana comes to us with the very experience needed in developing both group leaders and materials. Her knowledge of the mental health field is incredible. Plus, her people skills are exceptional.
Working with Fresh Hope is exciting and challenging. People experiencing mental health difficulties are courageous people; many are seeking the unique hope and healing opportunities that faith-based peer support offers. Fresh Hope truly is a fresh perspective on mood disorders, and an invitation for families and individuals to be strengthened by faith in their Creator and to encourage one another as they seek a life of wellness,” says Mrs. Waggoner.
According to Hoefs, When we started Fresh Hope four years ago, we envisioned it as a single faith-based support group for those who had mood disorders and their loved ones. Now here we are, four years later, with numerous groups in various states and requests to start groups in more states. It confirms the need for faith-based support groups for those who face mental health challenges. There is really nothing else out there like Fresh Hope. People are looking for hope. Hope keeps us going when facing mental health challenges.
Hoefs says that the addition of Diana Waggoner to the Fresh Hope staff is the beginning of Fresh Hope’s national campaign to stomp out the hopelessness that all too often accompanies mental health challenges. Hoefs says that part of this campaign will include short videos that he calls “Stigma Busters” scheduled to be released in early 2014.
Recently the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, each noted the new CDC statistics regarding suicide. The number of suicides in a year rose 31% to 38,364 in 2010 from 29,181 in 1999, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Also, that compares with 33,687 motor vehicle deaths in the same year.” (Wall Street Journal, 5/2/2013).
Our research shows that 86% of the Fresh Hope participants who were suicidal prior to attending Fresh Hope have not been suicidal since their participation in Fresh Hope.
In March of 2013 Hoefs released a book entitled, Fresh Hope: Living Well In Spite of a Mental Health Diagnosis. It is a wellness workbook which is based upon the six wellness principles of Fresh Hope. Hoefs believes that it is possible to do more than simply cope with a mental illness. In 1995 Hoefs was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder as a result of a painful and public major manic episode. Based upon his own experience with a mental illness Hoefs strongly believes that it is possible to live a full and faith-filled life in spite of having a mental health challenge.
The mission of Fresh Hope is to empower individuals to live a full and rich faith-filled life in spite of a mental health diagnosis. Started in 2009, Fresh Hope is a peer-to-peer Christ-centered wellness approach to mental health recovery based upon six tenets that empower people to connect both their faith and recovery principles.
