Mental HealthGoal of MIAW: Reduce Stigma and Increase Awareness

One in five Canadians will experience a mental health problem or illness in a given year. Many such victims face the reality that misconceptions about mental illness abound. Reducing stigma and increasing awareness of mental illness is the main purpose of Mental Illness Awareness Week (October 1-7, 2017). Check out the videos below for real stories of tragedy and triumph as sufferers (and the professionals who treat them) speak out and share their stories. RRC Library video resources are available to all staff and students at the College.

Stigma (NFB.ca) This film tells the story of a young woman who suffers a mental breakdown, recovers fully in a mental hospital and returns home. Instead of the understanding and support she most needs from her friends and associates, she is virtually ostracized. The film makes a plea for a change in the sort of public thinking that places a stigma upon people who have suffered from an illness of the mind rather than of the body.

OCD: The War Inside (NFB.ca) This feature documentary explores the daily lives of individuals living with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), a misunderstood anxiety disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts, nagging fears and ritualistic behaviour. From the outside, its sufferers have no physical disabilities and have every appearance of being as functional as the next person. But inside, a daily war is waged for survival.

Mental Illness Awareness Week

October 3, 2017 • Written by

Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW) is an annual national public education campaign designed to help open the eyes of Canadians to the reality of mental illness. The week was established in 1992 by the Canadian Psychiatric Association, and is now coordinated by the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH) in cooperation with all its member organizations and many other supporters across Canada.

One of MIAW’s major initiatives is the Faces of Mental Illness campaign, a national outreach campaign featuring the stories of Canadians living in recovery from mental illness. Thousands of pieces of MIAW posters, brochures, and bookmarks featuring the Faces are disseminated to hundreds of organizations across Canada in an effort to raise awareness and end the stigma associated with mental illness.

Living recovery : youth speak out on “owning” mental illness

Living Recovery provides critical information for practitioners and educators in mental health services about the self-described needs of young people diagnosed with mental illness. It portrays the stages of living with mental illness through the recovery model ELAR-emergence, loss, adaptation, and recovery.

Beyond schizophrenia : living and working with a serious mental illness

If someone you know is living and working with schizophrenia, their life is often fraught with challenges and setbacks. Baldwin makes a comprehensive attempt to explain why, in spite of near-miraculous advances in medication and treatment, persons with mental illness fare worse than almost any other disadvantaged group in the labor market. She looks at societal factors that affect employment outcomes for persons with serious mental illness, and then examines workplace factors that affect employment outcomes, including employer mandates in the Americans with Disabilities Act. Baldwin also outlines a set of policy recommendations designed to improve employment outcomes for this population.

I am not sick, I don’t need help! : how to help someone with mental illness accept treatment

Read and learn as have hundreds of thousands of others…to Leap -Listen, Empathize, Agree, and Partner-and help your patients and loved ones accept the treatment they need.

What is mental illness?

According to a major health survey, nearly half of all Americans have been mentally ill at some point in their lives—more than a quarter in the last year. Can this be true? What exactly does it mean, anyway? What’s a disorder, and what’s just a struggle with real life? This lucid and incisive book cuts through both professional jargon and polemical hot air, to describe the intense political and intellectual struggles over what counts as a “real” disorder, and what goes into the “DSM,” the psychiatric bible. Is schizophrenia a disorder? Absolutely. Is homosexuality? It was—until gay rights activists drove it out of the DSM a generation ago. What about new and controversial diagnoses? Is “social anxiety disorder” a way of saying that it’s sick to be shy, or “female sexual arousal disorder” that it’s sick to be tired? An advisor to the DSM, but also a fierce critic of exaggerated overuse, Richard J. McNally defends the careful approach of describing disorders by patterns of symptoms that can be seen, and illustrates how often the system medicalizes everyday emotional life.

Saturday Sept 30th is Orange Shirt Day

September 26, 2017 • Written by

Orange Shirt Day occurs annually on Sept 30th and recognizes the harms done to our Indigenous communities, friends and family by the Residential School System.

Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in the spring of 2013. It grew out of Phyllis’ story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually.

The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year. It also gives teachers time to plan events that will include children, as we want to ensure that we are passing the story and learning on to the next generations.

Orange Shirt Day is also an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.

Connecting to RRCWireless

August 24, 2017 • Written by

Wireless at RRCThe Red River College Library continues to receive inquiries about the wireless network.  As usual we try to answer all our patron’s questions, though it must be said that we do not control or manage the wireless networks here at RRC.  At the Library we are wireless users, just like you!

At RRC, the Information Technology Solutions department manages the wireless networks. Even though we do not control the system, the Library is always here to provide tips as to the best way to use the wireless system.

We are always ready to guide you:
library.rrc.ca/wireless 

 

Lesson #1: Always use RRCWireless. Don’t use RRCGuest!

Staff and students should connect through the Wireless Network named RRCWireless. Do not connect to RRCGUEST.

The network you need to connect to is named RRCWireless.

A common problem that occurs is users try to connect to the network named “RRCGuest”.  This network is for guests to the college and is not meant to be used by students and/or staff.

Connections to “RRCGuest” require a special username and a password that must be obtained  in advance, by making a CASELOG request to Information Technology Solutions.  The Library does not know any of the usernames and/or passwords and we cannot issue you with one.

Lesson #2: Make sure you use your correct username and password

The RRCWireless network does not operate like an open wireless, such as the wireless at “Starbucks” or “McDonald’s”. A user needs to enter their username and password to obtain a connection. When challenged, use your normal RRC network username and password to login.

After you enter your username and password, you may be asked whether you “trust” the network you must say “yes” and “accept” the connection to the network.

Lesson #3: Are you a Returning Student? Forget this Network!

forget

If you are a returning student, you were likely required to reset your password over the summer. When you return to the college, you have to make sure that any of your devices, such as cell phones or tablets, also have your new password in their settings.

Q: How do you do update your wireless password?
A: Forget this network!

Just ask your device to “Forget this Network” and then setup the network fresh.

Lesson #4: Lockouts

If your device was set with an old password, keep in mind that it was actively connect to the wireless with an incorrect password. This would have caused the college’s wireless system to lock out your device. Unfortunately, when you attempt to reconnect with your username and a correct password you may still be locked out!

Wait 30 minutes after you “Forget this Network” for your locked-out device to be re-allowed to connect to RRCWireless.

Getting Support

Please note, those staff and students that have College-issued laptops and devices, should submit a Caselog if they have troubles connecting to the Wireless network

However, the RRC IT Department will  not normally support those that have personal devices.  If you have a personal device and you can’t seem to get it connected to the RRCWireless, you are welcome to visit one of the Library Helpdesks for face-to-face support:

  • Roblin Centre Lower Learning Commons:  Weekdays 8:00AM to 4:00 PM
  • Notre Dame Campus Library Computer Lab:  Weekdays 8:00AM to 4:00 PM

Library Helpdesk staff are great at helping students diagnose wireless issues!

Remember, we are always ready to guide you!

Summer Reading

June 14, 2017 • Written by

It’s summer and it’s time for a vacation! During your summer holidays, why not take some time for yourself and read one of the many excellent books available in Red River College’s Library.

We have placed a selection of books in the Notre Dame Campus window display. Check it out or view a complete list of all books in our display. If you see something you like, just come to the Notre Dame Campus Library and inquire at the Circulation Desk.

Here is a small sample of some of the recommended titles we have on display.

 

All that man is / David Szalay

Nine men. Each of them at a different stage in life, each of them away from home, and each of them striving–in the suburbs of Prague, in an overdeveloped Alpine village, beside a Belgian motorway, in a dingy Cyprus hotel–to understand what it means to be alive, here and now. Tracing a dramatic arc from the spring of youth to the winter of old age, the ostensibly separate narratives of All That Man Is aggregate into a picture of a single shared existence, a picture that interrogates the state of modern manhood while bringing to life, unforgettably, the physical and emotional terrain of an increasingly globalized Europe. And so these nine lives form an ingenious and new kind of novel, in which David Szalay expertly plots a dark predicament for the twenty-first-century man.

Do not say we have nothing : a novel

An extraordinary novel set in China before, during and after the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989–the breakout book we’ve been waiting for from a bestselling, Amazon.ca First Novel Award winner. Madeleine Thien’s new novel is breathtaking in scope and ambition even as it is hauntingly intimate. With the ease and skill of a master storyteller, Thien takes us inside an extended family in China, showing us the lives of two successive generations–those who lived through Mao’s Cultural Revolution in the mid-twentieth century; and the children of the survivors, who became the students protesting in Tiananmen Square in 1989, in one of the most important political moments of the past century. With exquisite writing sharpened by a surprising vein of wit and sly humour, Thien has crafted unforgettable characters who are by turns flinty and headstrong, dreamy and tender, foolish and wise. At the centre of this epic tale, as capacious and mysterious as life itself, are enigmatic Sparrow, a genius composer who wishes desperately to create music yet can find truth only in silence; his mother and aunt, Big Mother Knife and Swirl, survivors with captivating singing voices and an unbreakable bond; Sparrow’s ethereal cousin Zhuli, daughter of Swirl and storyteller Wen the Dreamer, who as a child witnesses the denunciation of her parents and as a young woman becomes the target of denunciations herself; and headstrong, talented Kai, best friend of Sparrow and Zhuli, and a determinedly successful musician who is a virtuoso at masking his true self until the day he can hide no longer. Here, too, is Kai’s daughter, the ever-questioning mathematician Marie, who pieces together the tale of her fractured family in present-day Vancouver, seeking a fragile meaning in the layers of their collective story. With maturity and sophistication, humour and beauty, a huge heart and impressive understanding, Thien has crafted a novel that is at once beautifully intimate and grandly political, rooted in the details of daily life inside China, yet transcendent in its universality.

Hot milk / Deborah Levy

“I have been sleuthing my mother’s symptoms for as long as I can remember. If I see myself as an unwilling detective with a desire for justice, is her illness an unsolved crime? If so, who is the villain and who is the victim? Sofia, a young anthropologist, has spent much of her life trying to solve the mystery of her mother’s unexplainable illness. She is frustrated with Rose and her constant complaints, but utterly relieved to be called to abandon her own disappointing fledgling adult life. She and her mother travel to the searing, arid coast of southern Spain to see a famous consultant– their very last chance– in the hope that he might cure her unpredictable limb paralysis. But Dr. Gomez has strange methods that seem to have little to do with physical medicine, and as the treatment progresses, Sofia’s mother’s illness becomes increasingly baffling. Sophia’s role as detective– tracking her mother’s symptoms in an attempt to find the secret motivation for her pain– deepens as she discovers her own desires in this transient desert community. Hot Milk is a profound exploration of the sting of sexuality, of unspoken female rage, of myth and modernity, the lure of hypochondria and big pharma, and, above all, the value of experimenting with life; of being curious, bewildered, and vitally alive to the world”–

http://icarus.rrc.ca/vwebv/holdingsInfo?bibId=128498

 

The wonder / Emma Donoghue

An English nurse is brought to a small Irish village to observe what appears to be a miracle-a girl said to have survived without food for months-soon finds herself fighting to save the child’s life. Tourists flock to the cabin of eleven-year-old Anna O’Donnell, who believes herself to be living off manna from heaven, and a journalist is sent to cover the sensation. Lib Wright, a veteran of Florence Nightingale’s Crimean campaign, is hired to keep watch over the girl. Written with all the propulsive tension that made Room a huge bestseller, THE WONDER works beautifully on many levels–a tale of two strangers who transform each other’s lives, a powerful psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil.

The girl who drank the moon / Kelly Barnhill

Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this enmagicked girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. To keep young Luna safe from her own unwieldy power, Xan locks her magic deep inside her. When Luna approaches her thirteenth birthday, her magic begins to emerge on schedule — but Xan is far away. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Soon, it is up to Luna to protect those who have protected her — even if it means the end of the loving, safe world she’s always known.
