Hello! We discovered your site http://passiveechoes.com/the_blow_off/ and your link to https://www.psychologytoday.com/experts/carl-e-pickhardt-phd during our research of available online information on mental health geared toward non-professionals. I thought that you may be interested in an additional quality resource, one which addresses the strong and very important relationship between substance abuse, addiction, and mental health disorders. According to the AMA, approximately 50% of individuals with a ‘serious’ mental illness have problems with substance abuse. A significantly greater percentage of individuals with substance dependency have reported a ‘co-occurring disorder’ of some severity - most commonly depression and anxiety. As many treatment professionals know, treatment must address this strong relationship of ailments in order to be effective. Information for non-professionals, however, is severely lacking on the web. Many websites leave out critical or new research, fail to make information comprehensible and even refer to co-occurring disorders as ‘Dual Diagnosis’ – terminology from an outdated version of the DSM. This is why I’m reaching out to recommend a new resource that is a comprehensive aggregation of current research in an easy-to-follow format. I believe you will find these two pages to be the best available on the web for their topics: http://americanaddictioncenters.org/co-occurring-disorders/ http://americanaddictioncenters.org/treating-depression-substance-abuse/ I hope that you will consider these additions for placement somewhere on your site - and thank you so much for your time. If you have the chance, please let me know what we could do to help reach people with key resources such as these. I found your e-mail through passiveechoes.com, but if you are not responsible for modifications to this page, would not like to be contacted or are not the correct contact, I would greatly appreciate it if you could let me know and point me in the right direction. Thank you, Ashley Knowles Outreach Manager AdvocatesForHealth.org outreach@advocatesforhealth.org PO Box 3204 - Santa Monica, CA 90408
I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz respond as I'm looking to construct my own blog and would like to know where u got this from. thank you eekfaagedkkk
Dear Marcia, I just found you on the net. We knew each other back in 1969 at NCSA when we were both studying with Geraldine Cate. Back then my name was Sonja Burnam. Originally, I was a violin major studying with Vartan Manoogian, but, I minored in voice. Then I took a year off, went back to Hickory, and came back to NCSA as a voice major in 1971, finishing high school there in 1972. I am glad to find you, and I hope that you are doing well. Those days were very special and will stay in my heart forever. We were breaking new ground back then. It was fun reading some of the info on your website. It brought back fond memories. All the best, Sonja
Marcia, I could listen to you sing all day long. I'm so glad I found your website, now I can hear Marcia whenever I want!! I miss you!! Angie
Marcia - This week is Teacher Appreciation Week and, through my work, we are celebrating the teachers in our district, but I have been thinking about all of the amazing teachers in my life. I hope that I am reaching you to tell you that your father was one of my earliest (formal) and greatest teachers and easily one of the most influential. I remember being pushed into music at about 5 years old by my aunt (with whom he had boarded for a while on Rochelle Boulevard). I remember him telling her that my little-girl hands reached a full octave - and so, I could begin lessons. She bought me a piano at her house because she wanted me to be able to sight read and play for the church choirs like one of her favorite local church accompanists. That never materialized - I wasn't motivated - but Mr. Epps gave me a love and appreciation for music that has been a precious gift in my life. He influenced so many kids from Kinston, but I always thought (mostly wrong) I had a special connection because he was my personal piano teacher. He took me to performances and competitions in cities across North Carolina, and I was always a basket of nerves. I wasn't ever his best student, but good enough - and he certainly always pushed me to do my very best! His training taught me that practice makes perfect, dedication to one's craft bears rewards, and exposure to nearly every musical genre, including classical, jazz, gospel and R&B gives a girl what I like to call "range!" I tell anyone who asks me about my path out of Kinston that I had an idyllic childhood, with incredibly supportive family - and really amazing educators. Your father, in particular, poured so much into me - and so many other folks' children. In part because of him, I knew I would someday attend a great university, travel to many places, and have a richly blessed life. To this day, I cannot turn on a classical station - or groove to a 70's funk classic without thinking of Mr. Epps. He was small in stature, but a giant personality...indeed, a "Chief" as many called him. I looked you up online to let you know that your father's influence on my life has been immeasurable. Thank you for sharing him - such a great teacher and, in my eyes, such a great man - with me and so many others who must be as grateful as I am to have been taught by him.
