After a rather lengthy break for relocating, regrouping, & re-certifying (your PodHostess is a NY Certified Peer Specialist in mental health, where continuing education is an ongoing requirement), your WisdomWithin Podcast is back on the airwaves to begin our second season, with Episode 1, “Coping When Life Doesn’t Go To Plan.” A rather timely piece, what, with all of us working our way out of a year of pandemic and isolation and loss. This is about how we move forward, despite such losses. We hope you will tune in and share us with anyone who might need some encouragement.
Our WisdomWithin Podcast has just published its newest episode – first of our Lived Experience series – it’s “The Teens & Tough Stuff & Project Semi-colon” Episode. This discussion tackles some tough topics, including the increasing prevalence of youth suicide, but also a very life affirming message, including from “Project;”, and from studies showing that the very nature of the problem itself, has led today’s young people to be more open and willing to seek mental health help than their own parents may have been brought up to be.

Delighted, as Academy of Peer Services student/alum, to have our new podcast project featured by their Virtual Learning Community! The VLC is a project of the Academy of Peer Services, intended to create a bridge from knowledge (learned in APS courses) and applied skills, to practice in peer support and supervision in the workforce.
The Academy of Peer Services is a venture of the New York Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services (NYAPRS) and Rutgers University School of Health Professions (SHP) with funding from the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH). The Academy of Peer Services is separate from, but works in collaboration with, the New York Peer Specialist Certification Board to ensure quality education, training, and professional development of the peer support workforce in New York State.
Catching up on delayed production with our release of Episode #14, the “What in the Heck is Mindfulness?” episode, now available across your favorite listening platforms! Well, we obviously keep mentioning it, but exactly what is it? What does the science say? Does it really help? And what if I only have a minute or two, here and there, to give it a try? All this and more, with your podhostess and peer support human, Kathy Surline, & our support dogs, Bella & Biggs, snoring along in the background.
We got a bit behind this last week, but are happily back to the airwaves with our newest installment of the WisdomWithin podcast, focusing on calming our noisy minds! Thanks for the great feedback to date! We look forward to your continuing comments, constructive criticism and suggestions!
WisdomWithin’s newest podcast episode is ready for drop-in visitors! It’s been a great start – we are about one month in, and air about three episodes per week so far! We appreciate your time with us and all your helpful feedback! Please know, we remain a dedicated work in progress. Our newest release is Episode #12: the “How to Get Through a Panic Attack” episode, with a positive, honest look at real tools to use (or at least to consider), in the moment, that may help you (or help someone you care about), in working through panic symptoms. These tips can help folks who live with such symptoms as part of a chronic, ongoing health condition. As always, we always encourage anyone in urgent need to seek support from health professionals
