Boulder Crest Foundation’s ‘Struggle Well’ mantra helps veterans, first responders with mental health

On First Responders Day, Boulder Crest Foundation is pushing the mantra ‘Struggle Well’ in order to help and support all those who serve in uniform and take on the crisis of suicide and stress the community suffers.

For over a decade, Boulder Crest has been working to help our first responders and military overcome and work their way into post traumatic growth. A staggering 90% of our first responders do not utilize agency provided resources
because they are afraid of the stigma, and the potential of losing their job and being seen as unfit to serve.

That’s why non-profits like Boulder Crest matter so much, because it shows our first responders and military a path to an alternative, effective way of managing their stress and experiences.

The organization teaches, among other techniques, self regulation, not self medication, which is an ongoing crisis among these men and women.

When we are in trouble we dial 911, and magically a super hero arrives to protect and save us, but who is there for those first responders when they need help? Boulder Crest has a waiting list of individuals who need to be in these programs now, but they can’t do it without your help.

Boulder Crest is looking to raise awareness and funds to put 1500 heroes, currently on their list, through the program. Donate now, $10 bucks a month, less than a Netflix account, to help our first responders and veterans ‘struggle well’.

FL bans puberty blockers, transgender surgery for minors

Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.

“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.

More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.

National Review reports:

The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.

The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.

Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
