Intermountain Healthcare Announces Zero Suicide Initiative

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, July 19, 2018 / — A new initiative, called Zero Suicide, will be helping to reduce suicide losses in Utah — which have been increasing for the past few years. Utah has one of the highest suicide rates in the nation. Several studies released recently by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have shown that suicide rates have increased among all age groups.

"Last year, 45,000 people died by suicide in the United States, 630 of them in Utah," said Mark Foote, MD, senior medical director of Intermountain Healthcare Behavioral Health. "Suicide is not a new problem. The rate has gone up and down over time, but over the last 15 years, the rate has steadily gone up. This is no longer just a behavioral health problem — this is a public health crisis. We need to engage our entire system and our communities in combatting this horrible problem."

Intermountain Healthcare, the State of Utah, and numerous community groups have partnered together to find ways to reduce the deaths. Intermountain will target their suicide prevention efforts in three areas:

• Improving access to behavioral care, in part by adhering to best practices to screen, assess, and develop safety plans.
• Preparing caregivers and community organizations about how to talk about suicide and help those at risk seek help and create safety plans.
• Raising awareness about restricting access to lethal means.

Intermountain has worked for the past decade on mental health integration – bringing mental health best practices into the primary care provider’s offices. A family doctor can screen for depression, anxiety and other mental health concerns – and help get resources for their patients to be treated.

"In the future, none of us should feel at a loss for what we can do to help. As we implement the Zero Suicide framework as a part of our overall commitment to Zero Harm, we'll take a systematic approach to quality improvement that will make it easier for all of us to lead together to achieve Zero Suicide. Zero is the only acceptable number," said Mikelle Moore, Intermountain’s senior vice president of Community Health.

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 22 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with about 2,300 employed physicians and advanced practice clinicians, a health plans group called SelectHealth, and other medical services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare through high quality and sustainable costs. For more information about Intermountain, visit

Youth Take a Stand in Favor of Human Rights Education at the United Nations, Gain International Attention.

More than a 100 young men and women filed into the iconic Economic and Social Council Chamber at the United Nations in New York July 5th and 6th for the International Human Rights Summit

Young activists were selected based on their accomplishments in the field of human rights. They represented their countries at the Summit.

More than 100 young people were selected: youth delegates who represented their countries, and youth ambassadors, former delegates who have continued to serve as human rights activists.

Youth representing 60 nations gathered at the UN to celebrate the 15th Human Rights Summit and 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Always see the situation from a Human Rights perspective, the person goes first. Denounce, never silence against injustice and abuse; and be patient and firm when defending values.”

— Luis Almagro, Secretary-General, Organization of American States

UNITED NATIONS HQ, NEW YORK , USA, July 19, 2018 / — NEW YORK, July 6, 2018 More than a 100 young men and women filed into the iconic Economic and Social Council Chamber at the United Nations in New York July 5th and 6th for the International Human Rights Summit hosted by Youth for Human Rights International. There youth were welcomed by dignitaries and guests with a standing ovation. Through their commitment to raising awareness and understanding of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, they represent the hope for a humane and peaceful future.

Youths at the summit were selected to represent their countries on the basis of their own human rights accomplishments toward making human rights a fact. Among these youth delegates were youth from Washington DC, there to represent the human rights work being done in the Nation’s Capital. They were welcomed by the summit’s sponsor the Permanent Mission to the United Nations of Costa Rica and its co-sponsors the Permanent Missions to the UN of Cyprus, Australia, Morocco and Romania.

Adopted by the UN General Assembly 70 years ago, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) defined for the first time the 30 fundamental rights to which all men, women and children are entitled by their very existence. The preamble to the document asserts the importance of education in bringing about a civilization in which every person is treated with respect and where they may accomplish their own potential in a world at peace.

Perhaps nowhere was this better illustrated than by the presentation of the keynote speaker of the first day of the summit: Brigadier General Alberto Sepúlveda, Commander of the Seventh Division, National Army of Colombia. General Sepúlveda spoke of the way his country has redefined what it means to serve in the military. They have provided education to all soldiers on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights through the educational materials of United for Human Rights and its program for young people Youth for Human Rights International. He presented a slideshow showing the work of the Colombian armed forces to ensure the rights of all through their service in times of disaster and their human rights education initiative. His speech was included in the UN’s broadcast of the first day of the event.

One of the highlights of the event was the presentation by the keynote speaker of the summit’s second day at the UN His Excellency Luis Almagro, Secretary-General, Organization of American States, and former Foreign Minister of Uruguay. An exemplary diplomat, he is an outspoken proponent for the rights of the people of Latin America. He inspired youth with his advice: “Always see the situation from a Human Rights perspective, the person goes first. Denounce, never silence against injustice and abuse; and be patient and firm when defending values.”

Erica Rodgers, National Director of Youth for Human Rights in Washington, DC, highlighted the importance of education saying, "We cannot let our society be ignorant of human rights. We would be denying them their own freedom and potential happiness. It is our responsibility to make human rights known through whatever actions we take – big or small." She discussed the need for education in the basic rights listed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as grounding in today's political climate as well as plans to launch future education initiatives in schools.

During the event the annual Human Rights Hero Awards were presented to three outstanding humanitarians:

David Kritsun and Youth for Human Rights of Israel for uniting diverse ethnic and religious communities in ancient conflict zones. Through their work, they have extended human rights education across 23 regions of Tel Aviv and to nearly 100,000 in Jerusalem, thus building a foundation for peace and common understanding.

Mr. Nfamara Jawneh, founder and executive director of Beekanyang Kafo, a human rights NGO. For 22 years under a dictatorship in the Gambia, he was a leading voice and major force to bring change through his broad human rights awareness and democracy campaign. His grassroots activities reached more than 20,000, directly teaching them human rights. He collaborates with the new democratic national government and non-governmental agencies to build a framework for human rights education.

Despite constant risk and active threat from the Islamic State, Mr. Issa Sufyan Hussein has trained more than 1,000 intelligence, security and police personnel in Kurdistan on human rights. He was one of the first to use and implement the United and Youth for Human Rights curriculum in Kurdish and now trains other educators to carry his activities forward.

Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is the youth component of United for Human Rights (UHR). It is a global nonprofit organization founded in 2001 with the purpose to teach youth about human rights, specifically the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and inspire them to become advocates for tolerance and peace.

YHRI has now grown into a global movement with over 150 chapters and its educational materials, translated into 27 languages, bring the message of human rights to 195 nations. The Youth for Human Rights public service announcements and The Story of Human Rights educational film air on several hundred television stations in dozens of countries each year.

To date, more than 1.4 million students have been empowered with human rights education through the Youth for Human Rights curriculum. Further, partnerships to foster human rights have been forged with nearly 1,500 organizations and government agencies in 92 countries. Through these partnerships, human rights organizations and government bodies have been supported in their mission to improve the well-being of local, regional and national populations.

All told, thousands of organizations and governments have joined forces with Youth for Human Rights, helping to educate tens of millions around the world.
The Church of Scientology and Scientologists support United for Human Rights and make their educational materials available free of charge. For more information, visit the Scientology website or

Just Imagine If We Had Oprah and Her Experts Pushing for Emotional Health(EH) Instead of EI!

Brain and mind are two separate entities and so mind and brain education are different.

The quality of the self-image determines the quality of life for individuals, groups and countries.

Wisdom power is emotional health power.

Emotionally Healthy Brain Generates Emotional Intelligence.

Create your pure self by healing your brain through brain education.

Stop letting your emotional baggage rule your life.

EI is the smoke where emotional health (EH) is the fire, yet our experts keep trying to create the smoke instead of lighting the fire.

Oprah & her experts must wake up to the true nature of EI. EI is a fragrance of an emotionally healthy brain and like all fragrances it cannot be created on its own. The brain has to be healed into EH”

— Sajid Khan

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, July 19, 2018 / — It is amazing that our experts have focused on emotional intelligence, even though it is a secondary entity. It is a fragrance of the brain, which means emotional intelligence cannot be created on its own, just like to improve the fragrance of a flower, the plant has to be improved.

We have tens of thousands of books explaining and defining emotional intelligence as an independent stand-alone entity. So our experts continue to try to teach emotional intelligence directly as if it is a subject like math or science! Emotional intelligence is a sport where it is the brain that has to be trained to generate healthy biochemicals.

Oprah and her experts continue to try to find better and better ways to teach emotional intelligence. It is like trying to find better and better ways to create smoke without lighting the fire. Just imagine how easy it will be to create smoke by lighting the fire. The fire, in this case, is emotional health (EH).

Just Imagine if we had Oprah and Her Experts Pushing for Emotional Health(EH) instead of EI!

Oprah has done immortal work in taking up emotional intelligence and helping it become center stage. However, her accomplishments will remain half-baked as long as she does not help define the true nature of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence springs from emotional health so her focus must shift to creating emotional health.

Look at the consequences of not figuring out the true nature of EH!

Ei is the smoke where EH is the fire. If only Oprah and our experts would focus on creating EH instead of EI, the mess in society and in education will melt away.

For decades Oprah and her experts have marketed EI and now when I am pointing out to her that she needs to correct this blunder and if she still continues to push for EI, and not push EH instead; then she leaves me no choice but to challenge her and her experts to prove me wrong.

Terri Mays of Tapping With Terri to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

LODI, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 19, 2018 / — Modern schools are now highly pressurized environments. Administrators pressure teacher to deliver, Teachers pressure students to succeed. Add that to the now pervasive fear of school shootings and you can see why more and more students are struggling with anxiety.

Terri Mays is the founder of Tapping With Terri, where she specializes in a unique healing modality called emotional freedom technique (EFT), otherwise known as Tapping. Mays is dedicated to improving the classroom experience by teaching Tapping in schools to both students as well as teachers and administrators.

“What I have to offer is an incredible technique that is very empowering” says Mays. “Students can use it anytime they feel a little nervous, scared or angry. I am introducing a new paradigm engaging directly with the students in their classroom collectively processing their fears or anxieties.”

Tapping has its origins in helping people suffering from PTSD. Gold standard studies have proven how EFT Tapping reduces stress and anxiety. Tapping with your fingertips on acupressure points on your body lowers cortisol, allowing students to feel less anxious, more focused and more engaged.

“The students do think it’s a little weird at first, because you literally Tap on pressure point on your face and upper body but easily jump right into it,” says Mays. “Because they can immediately feel a sense of calmness after only tapping five or ten minutes they readily embrace it. We tap together using their words and it promotes a unified positive connection.”

Mays had been teaching EFT for many years as a coach when she was inspired to bring EFT into schools after recent school shootings. Mays works with students of all ages but specializes in middle and high school. She says that’s typically when students’ hope and imagination turn into believing they’re not good enough and they retreat and feel they need armor to protect themselves.

“We all tap as a class together kids really want to do well” says Mays. After tapping, students feel more confident, calmer and have improved self-esteem.”

A recent Harvard Medical School study showed kids who tapped before their exams scored up to 20 percent higher.

CUTV News Radio will feature Terri Mays in an interview with Jim Masters on July 23rd at 1pm EDT.

Brenda Reiss Forgiveness Coaching to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

REDMOND, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, July 19, 2018 / — The author Marianne Williamson once said, “Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.”

Brenda Reiss is a forgiveness coach, specializing in Radical Forgiveness, a revolutionary five-stage process to heal relationships, let go of anger and blame, and find peace in any situation.

“The secret is that all forgiveness is self-forgiveness,” says Brenda, “but we can't always jump into ourselves first. There's too much shame and guilt. Before jumping into the lion's den—ourselves—let's start outside of ourselves, so we can begin to see what our patterns are.”

Brenda was introduced to Radical Forgiveness following a very challenging divorce.

“I didn't know who I was without this person,” she recalls. “I could not get to that point of forgiveness using the traditional method. I thought you were supposed to forgive and move on. It doesn't work that way.”

It was at this time Brenda found an advertisement for a "forgiveness coach” who showed Brenda the patterns she’d never been shown before, even after years of talk therapy.

“Forgiveness to me is a spiritual and emotional feeling (change to experience),” says Brenda. Radical forgiveness gives us a framework. It gives your mind something to do so your heart can heal. It's a very tangible process because when emotions are too out of control, you can't really do much of anything. We can’t forgive until we’re ready to take responsibility.”

Through this five-stage process, Brenda guides her clients as they explore their feelings, their sadness, their anger, validating the part of us that has been wounded and hurt, and clearing the beliefs about ourselves we associate with this experience.

Then comes the final step: radical forgiveness, where you look at your experience from a different perspective.

“Forgiveness doesn’t mean we condone the behavior,” says Brenda. By being willing to shift our perception about the stories in our lives, we can become curious and ask ourselves questions like: “What can we learn from this? What if this happened for my individual growth and purpose? What if life isn’t happening to me. but happening for me? It opens up this whole world. We no longer have to be the victim, but more importantly, we no longer have to be the judge.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Brenda Reiss in an interview with Jim Masters on July 23rd at 12pm EDT and with Doug Llewelyn on July 30th at 12pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

Work doesn’t end at the office for Mr. Kulpa. In addition to this scholarship, he also generously pledged $20,000 to the San Diego Special Olympics in 2018, and he serves on the boards of the San Diego Humane Society and the San Diego Police Foundation. Communities can be created anywhere, and Mr. Kulpa tries to strengthen them at every turn.

Requirements: Applicants must submit a short, 500-word essay on the Jason Kulpa Community Scholarship website answering the following question: “How has your community involvement made you think differently about yourself, others, and the world around us?”

Deadline: Jason Kulpa Community Scholarship Committee will review all completed applications once the application period closes on August 15th, 2018. Once a winner has been selected, the winner will be contacted in September 2018. If the winner does not respond after two weeks, a new winner will be chosen.

Bui Simon former MISS UNIVERSE to give 30 students college scholarships

I want to pay it forward by providing a gift to these well deserving Thai students who otherwise would not have the ability to soar to their potential.”

— Porntip Bui Simon former Miss Universe

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, July 19, 2018 / —
For Immediate Release CONTACT: NEAL PUBLIC RELATIONS 323-366-2796


LOS ANGELES, CA July 5, 2018 –  30 years ago this June, Porntip Bui Simon, had her life changed forever as she was crowned Miss Universe 1988.  On this milestone Anniversary, Porntip Bui Simon, President of Angels Wings Foundation will be awarding 30 Thai students academic scholarships to further their education. Building on the success of the Angels Wings Thai Scholarship Program's inaugural year, which saw over 24 students of Thai ancestry receive educational support, Simon has expanded the 2018 Scholarship search beyond Los Angeles to the entire state of California.

“On the eve of my 30th anniversary of being crowned Miss Universe I was reminded of the virtue of investing and believing in others. In honor of those who believed in me when I was crowned Miss Universe at merely 19 years old, I will be awarding 30 AWF Thai Scholarships this year to an inspiring group of Thai students who I believe will go on to do great things,” said Porntip Bui Simon.

The Angels Wings Thai Scholarship program is dedicated to advancing the education of exceptionally promising Thai-American students who have demonstrated academic excellence, involvement in their Thai community, and the desire to continue their education. The 2018 recipients selected for the AWF Scholarship will receive $5,000 if attending city/community colleges and $10,000 for those attending 4-year colleges or universities. This year’s students have been accepted to Pasadena City College, Chapman University, Stanford, UCLA, UCSB, USC and UC Berkley to name a few.

Angels Wings Foundation will be hosting a celebration and awards ceremony in honor of these talented young scholars in Los Angeles on Saturday, August 4th, 2018 at the Montage Hotel located at 225 North Canon Drive, in Beverly Hills at 12:00pm.

“Angels Wings Thai Scholarship was created to offer more opportunity to ambitious Thai students with dreams of pursuing a higher education, but lack financial support. I experienced first hand what it was like as an immigrant child surviving in Los Angeles with well intended parents who barely spoke English. Education was my pathway to finding my place in the world. I want to pay it forward by providing a gift to these hardworking Thai families and an opportunity to well deserving Thai students who otherwise would not have the ability to soar to their potential.”
Angels Wings Foundation founder, Porntip Bui Simon

The 2019 Angels Wings Thai Scholarship program will begin at the first of the year.
