The volunteer members of the Council will extend the reach of the organization’s programs and priorities and more meaningfully place veterinarians at the forefront of the animal protection movement. A wide range of public attitude surveys reveal that veterinarians are the most trusted sources on matters of animal care and animal welfare policy.

In addition to policy and advocacy work, veterinarians with the Council will, to the extent practicable, help with hands-on and advocacy programs for the Animal Wellness Foundation, putting their professional training and public credibility to advance animal protection goals.

“Veterinarians have the training and practical experience not only to help animals, but also to guide political leaders, corporations, and average citizens to do better when it comes to individual and institutional treatment of animals,” said Dr. Annie Harvilicz, the founder of the Animal Wellness Foundation and a practicing veterinarian in Los Angeles. “Our veterinarians have the experience and ability to push forward our campaigns to combat factory farming, puppy mills, horse abuse, and so many other problems.

Paula B. Johnson of Centered Mind Counseling Services to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

ISSAQUAH, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, November 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Life is full of struggles and hardships. It's so easy to lose sight of what is important to you, what it is that you care about and allow our thoughts and feelings to set the course of our lives.

But if we’re living in a way that matches our values, what might we be doing? With that simple question, we can pull ourselves out of the anxious or depressed thoughts and continue in a direction aligned with who we really are at our core.

Paula B. Johnson, MS, LMHC is a therapist and founder of Centered Mind Counseling Services a group counseling therapy practice with two locations; offering counseling services to adults, couples, families and children to overcome anxiety, depression and life’s struggles.

After spending 26 years in social services and more than 20 years of direct counseling experience, Paula started Centered Mind Counseling Services as part of her over-arching mission to help others.

“Expanding my private therapy practice and starting Centered Mind Counseling Services, has been another way for me to continue my mission towards helping others while reaching more people in our community,” says Paula.

“I truly believe that as human beings we are all trying to do the best that we can do,” says Paula. “Life is full of struggles and hardships. It doesn't matter how good of a person you are or what good you're doing in the world; difficult things happen. No one is immune. It is such an honor for me to help people better cope with what life throws their way so that they can move through and beyond their suffering.”

Paula says as a society we do a terrible job teaching the difference between our emotions, our thoughts and our feelings. Much of Paula’s therapy is providing education around how our minds work, normalizing the chatter in our minds, and helping people to separate out their thoughts from feelings so that they can gain clarity and space around what they are truly feeling.

“I help my clients clarify what is important to them,” Paula says, “Suddenly, you have this space where values and self-awareness guide them. When they start to see that there's another way, even if they don't know how to do it, it's a wonderful place to be. I am honored to do the work that I do. I love being a part of something so positive. I know that psychotherapy works, and is an invaluable tool for growth, healing, new perspectives and change.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Paula B. Johnson, MS, LMHC in an interview with Jim Masters on November 13th at 2pm EDT

It should not be legal for a child to be taken into custody and sent for involuntary psychiatric examination without parental knowledge when the child does not meet the criteria for a Baker Act.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, November 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Attended by hundreds of guests, the 4th Annual Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) Humanitarian Awards Banquet once again honored the many dedicated volunteers and supporters of CCHR for their work help restore rights and dignity to the field of mental health.

The 2019 CCHR Hall of Fame Award, was presented to Dr. Freddie Ulan. One of the original founding members of CCHR, Dr, Ulan began his fight for human rights in 1969 and helped to establish CCHR chapters across the world including the Florida chapter.

Known for her no nonsense attitude when it comes to the letter of the law, this year’s recipient of the prestigious CCHR Humanitarian Award was Orlando attorney Ms. Kendra Parris for her work to protect the rights of Floridians under the Baker Act. Having helped secure the safe release of more than 50 men, women and children who were being held unjustly in psychiatric facilities under the mental health law called the Baker Act, Ms. Parris dedicated to stopping psychiatric abuse.

In accepting the award, Kendra said, “We have an unconscionable problem in Florida. It is the routine and cavalier way in which individuals are being subjected to baseless, inhumane psychiatric examinations. There is a profit motive built into this scheme, which leads to systemic violations of patients’ rights; forced and unwarranted drugging; manipulation of statutory legal protections for the financial gain of the facilities; and often outright fraud.”

Citing the abusive use of the mental health law, Parris vowed to continue working with CCHR to help create effective legislative changes that hold psychiatrists and facilities accountable for rights violations.

Originally intended to protect patient rights, the Baker Act has now become a source of human rights abuse with involuntary psychiatric examinations more than doubling in the past 16 years. According to the Baker Act Reporting Center, 36,078 Baker Acts were initiated during 2017-2018 which equates to one Baker Act every 15 minutes. Even more disturbing is that the mental health law allows for a child to be Baker Acted without parental knowledge. [1]

Launching a campaign to put an end to this violation of rights in 2016, the Florida chapter of CCHR, a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the protection of children, has educated almost 220,000 families on their rights under the law in addition to calling upon Florida lawmakers to eliminate the unjust Baker Acting of children.

“We must restore and secure basic freedoms and rights, especially and most importantly, for our next generation… our leaders of tomorrow… mankind’s future,” said Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida. “It should not be legal for a child to be taken into custody and sent for involuntary psychiatric examination without parental knowledge when the child does not meet the criteria for a Baker Act.”

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.

Small Cap Company Jetblack Corp JTBK Plans To Finish Formulation Of Its Unique Wellness Product

Jetblack Corp (OTCMKTS:JTBK)

Capital to work for a good cause”

— Jetblack Corp

CHICAGO, IL, USA , November 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jetblack Corp (OTC: JTBK) “Jetblack” “the company” “JTBK” announced today it has worked through some its issues with shareholder deposits. JTBK is hopeful this will continue in the future, so that shareholders will not have the same struggles they have had in the past. JTBK can now begin to seek out different means of financing to finish formulation, begin packaging, bottling and distributing its unique wellness product. The company is keeping the details of the product confidential because it believes a speedy time to market is essential. The “wellness” product is a non-cannabinoid product which will not have the complex regulations that surround marijuana products. Although the company plans to market it towards marijuana users, the company believes it may benefit non-marijuana users as well. “We believe it is truly a unique product and may benefit people in a variety of ways. I am not aware of another product like it on the market,” explained CEO Daniel A. Goldin. JTBK will begin to release more details about the non-cannabis wellness product in the coming weeks.

JTBK has a new company website which can be found at JetblackCorp.com. The site details the companies overall vision for creating unique products that may benefit society and/or the environment. The company plans to spend small amounts of capital developing and distributing multiple products across a variety of sectors, which will distribute the risk of capital investment across multiple product lines. “Being that the focus is on products that benefit people or the planet, we feel it gives investors the opportunity to put their capital to work for a good cause and hopefully be rewarded with upside,” explained the CEO.

In addition, JTBK is still in the process of transferring ownership and locations of a marijuana production license to its leased space in Hillsboro, Oregon. The company plans to contact OLCC in the coming days to get an update on the transfer process. “We are not sure if will continue with the transfer of the license for many reasons, but we plan to update shareholders as soon as developments occur. We are going to focus on our first wellness product because we feel this will be the quickest way to begin to achieve revenues and profitability,” Daniel A. Goldin explained.

Any forward-looking statement reflects the Company's current views with respect to future events and is subject to these and other risks, uncertainties and assumptions relating to operations, results of operations, growth strategy and liquidity. The Company assumes no obligation to publicly update or revise these forward-looking statements for any reason, or to update the reasons actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements, even if new information becomes available in the future. The loss of key employees would be detrimental to the company success. Currently the company is considered a penny stock, which means the spreads can be very far apart, sometimes illiquid, and investors may not be able to sell when they want or for the price paid. In some circumstances the investor may lose all their investment.
