Seattle , USA Volunteers (Medical Assistants) willing to help - Directions Needed

--- From a blog reader---

My name is Ken Johnston. I am writing to you from Seattle Washington, United States.
I'm an Medical Assistant very concerned about the disaster in SE Asian. I have been trying to find out how our group can get over to SE Asia and help with the Tsunami disaster.

There are many other people wanting to volunteer. But this is my problem: I and a number of other people don't really know how to go about finding an organization we can join without months of waiting for applications to be completed.

We are asking anyone in SE Asia who might give us information for volunteers coming over there to help.

We are sending some people to Bankok in a week to establish an office to give us more information. But we feel that going to help in Sri Lanka might be needed more. But we are not sure.

We are concerned as well about the understandable disorganization around sending too many people and supplies to one place and not enough to many other places.

What we need are some solid contacts who can inform us as to what needs we can help with as far as sending volunteers.

I would be eternally grateful.

We want to help!

Thoughts? Ideas? Help? let me (us) know, please.

Sincerely,
Ken Johnston

NMHA News Release February 15, 2002

NMHA Warns Public, Scientologists Not Qualified to Provide Mental Healthcare

Statement by Michael M. Faenza, President and CEO of the National Mental Health Association

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (February 15, 2002) Today NMHA warns people in need of mental health support to beware of Church of Scientology representatives claiming to provide mental healthcare. Almost six months after the Sept. 11 tragedy, with the economy in recession and the war on terrorism continuing, the Church of Scientology is using this time of uncertainty to recruit new members.

The Church of Scientology has announced a campaign to offer free assistance to those still troubled by the attacks of Sept. 11, with billboards publicizing their toll-free number and the message “Something Can Be Done About It,” in New York, Washington D.C., and other select cities across the country.

For a Church of Scientology volunteer to be certified as a minister, he or she is required only to read The Scientology Handbook and pass a short examination in a Scientology church or mission.

A qualified mental health provider has years of education and post-education training, a degree from an accredited program, and is usually required to be licensed by the state in which they work. NMHA advises people seeking mental health treatment to check their providers’ credentials and affiliations.

This isn’t the first time we at NMHA have urged the Church of Scientology to stay out of mental health. In the wake of September’s attacks, Fox News broadcast a toll-free help-line for “National Mental Health Assistance,” unaware that the number connected callers to the Scientologist’s headquarters in Los Angeles. Scientologists also sent 450 counselors to ground zero under the guise of providing mental health assistance.

Claiming to provide quality mental health support to people in emotional crisis for dubious reasons is unethical and can be harmful to those needing real assistance.

The National Mental Health Association is the country's oldest and largest nonprofit organization addressing all aspects of mental health and mental illness. With more than 340 affiliates nationwide, NMHA works to improve the mental health of all Americans through advocacy, education, research and service.

NMHA provides mental health assistance to American communities through its local affiliates. For mental health information and referrals contact us at 800-969-NMHA (6642) or www.nmha.org.

The chances of contracting erectile dysfunction goes up substantially with age, increasing significantly above the age of sixty-five-which is rapidly approaching for the baby boomers. Although erectile dysfunction becomes more likely with advancing age, there is certainly no age cutoff for a sexually fulfilling life. Some men enjoy sexual activity even in their eighties and nineties. www.buy-viagra-with-us.com

Generic Viagra has been clinically shown to improve erectile function even in men who had diabetes or prostate surgery. The pill contains this component that helps increase blood flow to the penis and may help men with ED get and keep an erection satisfactory for sexual activity.

Generic Cialis is used to increase blood flow to certain areas of the body, as a muscle relaxant and as a male impotence or erectile dysfunction treatment.

Generic Cialis is slightly different from the other erectile drugs available in the market as it may work up to 36 hrs after dosing. Generic Levitra orks along with sexual stimulation to help achieve an erection when taken 30 to 60 minutes before sexual activity.

Generic Viagra improves erections for most men no matter how long they have had erectile dysfunction, taken approximately 30 minutes before your plan of sexual activity and works on stimulation for around 4 hours.
