YOU DON’T HAVE A DEMON – YOU NEED HELP!
“We need to take the stigma away from mental health issues in the Black family.”
(San Bernardino, CA) There is a tradition in Black families that says mental health problems are really a “demon” inside the person and all you need is prayer to get better. “You don’t have demon, you need help,” says Cathedral of Praise International Ministries, Bishop Craig W. Johnson last Sunday as he introduced mental health day with the Broken Crayons Still Color Projectcreated by the Healthy Heritage Movement.
Bishop Johnson’s comments introduced one of the nation’s leading clinical psychologists Dr. Gloria Morrow and the Broken Crayons Still Color Project to the Cathedral of Praise congregation in two services discussing the need for professional mental health in the Black Community.
Broken Crayons Still Color Projectis an eight-week program created and presented by the non-profit Healthy Heritage Movement at churches in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. It is taught by Dr. Gloria Morrow and Dr. Candance Walters.
“This program is designed for African American women to learn effective strategies to cope with and identify signs of depression, stress, anxiety, PTSD, substance abuse, and other mental strains,” said Dr. Morrow.
“Broken Crayons Still Color Project is important to implement in the faith community because churches are one of the central institutions for African Americans; and when they are able to integrate spirituality with some of the psychological concepts that are important for them to learn, it really makes a difference,” said Dr. Morrow.
“Our Mission is to decrease health disparities and increase health equity in the African American Community”, said Healthy Heritage Movement founder Phyllis Clark.
“Some people in church don’t just need prayer, they need a pill, or they need therapy, or pastoral guidance. We do our best to distinguish between them,” said Bishop Johnson. “We need to take the stigma away from mental health issues in the Black family.”
Bishop Johnson understands the need for mental health support. Before becoming a pastor, he served as a Peer Group Counselor, Probation Group Counselor, Employment Services Counselor, Social Service Worker, Independent Living Skills Program Coordinator, Service Program Specialist, and Social Services Supervisor.
The Broken Crayons Still Color Projectis made possible by the California Reducing Disparities Project – Office of Health Equity.

(San Bernardino, Calif.) Any company’s success is still often dictated by its portrayal in the traditional media.
“For a company to really take off, it needs to be accessible to members of the press. So, instead of just sending out a press release every week, a company should be ready to reach out for interviews and provide quotes and soundbites to the media,” said Carl M. Dameron founder of Dameron Commercials.
Establishing a face of the company is also a critical step in becoming media friendly. Whether it’s the CEO or an upper-level manager, the person representing the company should know the ins and outs of the industry and much more.
Here are the five tips that everyone needs to follow when appearing on-camera. Most of it is good advice if we have lined up a print media interview for you as well, or even a phone interview.
It might sound shallow, but people generally judge others based on how they look. So, decide how you want your company to be perceived by the audience and dress accordingly.
For men, a suit and tie is the safest route to go. For women, it’s best to avoid vibrant clothing, excessive make up, and bulky jewelry as to not distract the viewers’ attention.
Don’t come in with hair that’s too disheveled and covering your face – to be the face of a company, you need to proudly show off your face.
In general, a clean, professional look should always work in most on-camera interview situations.
Do Your Homework
Once you get an opportunity to appear on camera (or on radio or print), you should portray yourself as an expert in not just your company, but in the industry as well.
We will check to see if you can get the questions ahead of time, or at the least, find out what topics will be covered within the interview. We will submit recommended questions when you have a broadcast interview, but it is up to the interviewer what questions are asked. The more prepared you are, the less likely it is that the words “Uh,” “Um,” and “You know” will make up your diction.
Ignore the Bright Lights and Production Crew
If you’re on TV there will probably be bright lights shining on you throughout the interview and there might even be a production team moving around in your line of vision. However, the cameras don’t pick up all the chaos going on behind the scenes.
If you’re taking part in a one-on-one interview, your eyes and focus should be on the person conducting the interview. Averting your attention away from the interviewer for even a few seconds makes it seem like you’re disinterested, zoning out and lost.
Avoid Industry Jargon
When speaking about your business or industry, it’s best to use terms that everyone can understand, and take the time to explain industry terms in simple language. That way, people who are first learning about your company or industry will have an easier time of knowing what the heck you’re talking about.
Be A Professional
If you’re ever confronted by the interviewer with a question you’re uncomfortable answering, stay collected and take some time to craft a response. Simply saying “no comment” in a calm tone is much better than getting into a potential shouting match with the person in control of the interview. Plus, you don’t want to be on the wrong end of what could become a viral video in this day and age of YouTube.

Inland Empire, Calif.– The heroes of September 11th, 2001 include firefighters and police officers who showed their courage by running into flaming buildings to save those who they could. Private citizens who lead frightened people down dark staircases for dozens of flights. Some went back up those dangerous stars to lead more people to safety and never returned.
“The heroes of 9/11 include the passengers of the hijacked and doomed United Airlines Flight 93 from Newark to San Francisco who refused to be used as weapons against this nation. They sacrificed their lives to protect untold lives in Washington D.C.,” said Carl M. Dameron president of Dameron Communications.
“The men and women who died at the Pentagon and the twin towers in New York City were killed by cowards who used terror to attack this nation. The terrorist attempted to cause fear and division among us,” said Dameron. “Terrorist still don’t understand that Americans come together in crisis. We will not be intimidated by any terrorist.”

Again, our law enforcement and firefighting heroes ran into danger to save people. Again, this nation found the terrorist responsible and brought them to justice,’ said Dameron.
“I celebrate the contribution of our heroes and morn the losses this nation experienced on September 11thand December 2nd. The United States I love, is place where we are not panicked by terror, but we come together to fight terrorist and injustice,’ said Dameron.
“The United States of America is a place that will not be bowed. We rebuilt on the site of the Twin Towers. We reopened the Inland Regional Center,” said Dameron. We work together to make life better an honor those who were murdered in the name of freedom.”
