Podcast Episode: Forced Labour, Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

Podcast Episode: Forced Labour, Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

January 14, 2020

Human trafficking is a crime that forcefully exploits women, men, and children. According to the United Nations, human trafficking affects every country in the world, but it’s not talked about enough. So we’re talking about it.

Trafficking involves transporting someone into a situation of exploitation. This can include forced labor, marriage, prostitution, and organ removal. This kind of exploitation is known by a few different names -- “human trafficking,” “trafficking of persons,” and “modern slavery” are the ones accepted by the US Department of State.

It’s estimated that internationally there are between 20 million and 40 million people in modern slavery today. Assessing the full scope of human trafficking is difficult because so cases so often go undetected, something the United Nations refers to as “the hidden figure of crime.

In today's episode, we joined by John Malcolm and Ron Toft where they discuss in depth trafficking and modern day slavery.

Podcast Episode: Are you thinking about suicide? How to stay safe and find treatment

Podcast Episode: Are you thinking about suicide? How to stay safe and find treatment

November 18, 2019

Many people consider committing suicide at some point in their lives. If you’re having suicidal thoughts, know that you’re not alone. You should also know that feeling suicidal isn’t a character flaw, and it doesn’t mean you’re crazy or weak. It only signifies that you’re experiencing more pain or sadness than you can cope with right now.

There’s no single reason why someone may try to take their own life. However, certain factors can increase the risk. Someone may be more likely to attempt suicide if they have a mental health disorder. In fact, over 90 percent of people who commit suicide have a mental illness at the time of their death. Depression is the top risk factor, but many other mental health disorders can contribute to suicide, including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

In today’s episodes Jake discusses suicidal thoughts. He gives us steps we can handle our emotional waves that occur in our lives when we experience these thoughts.

Remember that problems are temporary, but suicide is permanent. Taking your own life is never the right solution to any challenge you may be facing. Give yourself time for the circumstances to change and for the pain to subside. In the meantime, you should take the following steps when you’re having suicidal thoughts.
