Feb 18th - Village Talk - Youth & Suicide - What Every Parent Should Know

Youth & Suicide


AAMHI is excited about 2017 and the many “Village Talks” that we've planned, to continue the “conversation” concerning Mental Health.

We ended 2016 with a beautiful Mental Health Christmas Gala that featured several dynamic speakers which represented a broad sector of our Community. I want to thank Pastor Virgil Jones, Jr. (Philippian Community Church); Dr. Jacqueline Conley (EWC), Bishop Trey and First Lady Cynthia Wright (Zion Hope Community Church); Officer Greg Burton (JSO); and Mrs. Selena Webster-Bass (CEO Lead Innovator), who all spoke from their hearts and brought words of inspiration, wisdom, knowledge and HOPE.

One of the topics presented at the Gala dealt with our Youth, Depression and Suicide. We were given some very startling statistics regarding the rate of suicide amongst our Youth. We were also informed of ways to identify the early warning signs of depression and what we as parents or caregivers must be cognizant of when interacting with our children. Because of the tremendous response that we received from those in attendance to shed more light on this subject; AAMHI decided to start the year off focusing on our “Youth & Suicide – What Every Parent Should Know”.

In this day and time, children have so much to contend with in Society, (ie school, homework, cell phones, social media, peer pressure, bullying, self-image, gangs, the need for acceptance etc.); and yet, the one thing that is STILL lacking is COMMUNICATION. Many are truly “suffering in silence” and don't know how to verbalize what they are feeling or thinking; and afraid to talk to anyone for fear of being judged. WE MUST begin to BRIDGE THE GAP!!!!!! Many warning signs are being missed or overlooked by parents, loved ones and caregivers.

It is for this reason that AAMHI is so excited to have Jim Whited as our keynote speaker for this month's Village Talk, to be held on Sat. Feb. 18th. Not only is Jim a Nurse Practitioner, he is a Board Certified Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner specializing in Emergency, Family and Mental Health Medicines. Jim currently works with both adults and children in the arenas of mental health at Dr. Carlos Torrellas's Office, PSI and Community Rehabilitation Center.

I've had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Jim speak, and I feel that he is one who truly has a “pulse” on what our children are dealing with; and how we as parents and caregivers can best guide them through “turbulent” waters.

Again, AAMHI looks forward to seeing you on Feb 18th. Please bring a friend or family member; they'll thank you for the invitation.

God Bless, and don't forget to AIM-HIGH in all you do!!!!

JUDGE GLENDA A. HATCHETT, THE HATCHETT FIRM, PC JOINS LAKIN ROBINSON DURHAM KANE KURPIERS, P.A. ON VERNELL BING JR. CASE

- BING JR. V. TYLER L. LANDREVILLE AND MIKE WILLIAMS
Case No.3:16- CV-1140-J-34JRK -


WHAT: (JACKSONVILLE, FL) Attorney Glenda A. Hatchett, Founder of The Hatchett Firm, PC, announces that she has joined Attorneys John F. Lakin, Ronald J. Kurpiers, II, and Bryce V. Durham of Lakin Robinson Durham Kane Kurpiers, P.A. on the case of 22-year old Vernell Bing, Jr. She will hold a press conference at Liberty Park on Friday, January 13, 2017. Bing was fatally shot in the head by Deputy Tyler Landerville, a seven-year veteran of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. The attorneys are representing Vernell Bing Sr. as the father and personal representative of the estate of his son.

WHEN: Friday, January 13, 2017

WHERE: Liberty Park
1938 Liberty Street
Jacksonville, FL 32206

TIME: 3:00pm ET / 2:00pm CT

MEDIA CONTACT: Na’eema Rashad
(678) 591-7425
nr@thehatchettfirm.com

On May 22, 2016, Bing was shot on the left side of his head and due to critical injuries and a loss of brain function, he died on May 23, 2016 at the University of Florida Health Jacksonville Hospital. Bing was described to be unarmed and defenseless.

The federal lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court Middle District of Florida, Jacksonville Division, against Deputy Sherriff Landerville, and, Sherriff Mike Williams, Sherriff of the consolidated city of Jacksonville, on three counts of wrongful death, municipal liability, and a violation of civil rights.

The Hatchett Firm, PC is a national law firm that specializes in catastrophic injury, wrongful death, and police misconduct cases. Attorney Hatchett is passionate about pursuing justice for those who have experienced significant losses from the negligence of others.

As the family attorney for Philando Castile, Hatchett will continue to advocate for meaningful systemic reform. On July 6, 2016, Castile was shot and killed by the St. Anthony Police Department Officer Jeronimo Yanez at a routine traffic stop in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. Hatchett is working diligently on shifting the overwhelming pattern of law enforcement shootings involving young black men in the United States. The Bing family’s dynamic legal team is dedicated to seeking justice on behalf of Vernell Bing Jr. and his family.

“There is no justification as to why this young man should have died,” says Glenda Hatchett, “My heart goes out to the Bing family, and we will do everything in our power to make sure that they get the justice they deserve.”
