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



Afghanistan 676001056

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’.

Nebraska woman who detransitioned sues doctors who facilitated removal of ‘healthy breasts’ when she was a teen battling mental health

Nebraska woman Luka Hein is suing Nebraska Medicine, the Nebraska Medical Center, and University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) Physicians who facilitated in her gender transition when she was a teenager; Hein has since detransitioned.

Hein, who is being represented by the Center for American Liberty, filed the suit last week, for removal of her healthy breasts when she was a depressed teenager who struggled with mental health.

“Proceeding straight to breast amputation in a depressed, anxiety-ridden, gender-confused adolescent, who was incapable of understanding the lasting consequences of her decision, constitutes negligence for which Defendants are jointly and severally liable,” the lawsuit states.

Fox News reports:

Throughout adolescence, Hein struggled with her mental health and traumatic experiences, including being allegedly groomed and threatened by an adult man. She had serious mental-health struggles at age 13. By 15 she was diagnosed with “gender identity disorder” and put on a fast track to have her breasts removed, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit claims that despite Hein’s history, doctors rushed her into gender transition without considering her psychological comorbidities. It says the defendants used deceptive euphemisms and unscientific terminology to sell gender-transition procedures to Hein.

For instance, their use of the phrase “masculinizing hormone therapy” was misleading as the process does not heal the patient but does “inflict harm that causes malfunctioning and malformation of the teenage body and brain,” according to the lawsuit. Testosterone injections, which Hein received as part of her attempted sex change, can cause many negative side effects including high blood pressure and permanent bodily changes such as the development of an Adam’s apple, deepening of the voice, abnormal hair growth, and male pattern balding of the scalp.

The lawsuit says defendants were also negligent in other ways, such as in their shifting from a standard medical diagnosis to the “affirming care” model, which embraces a person’s gender delusion as fact and discourages questioning.

Allegedly one doctor, Nahia J. Amoura, was prepared to go even further. “About a year after starting Luka on testosterone, Dr. Amoura recommended to Luka that she surgically remove her uterus in a partial hysterectomy as the next step in her ‘transition,’” the lawsuit states. The hysterectomy would have permanently sterilized Hein and created hormonal imbalances that would have required long-term medical follow-ups.
