Similarly, there are tons of other issues and events in our lives that can take the better off your mind and health, if you let it. It is where the professional therapy can help tremendously. If you feel that the stress you are going through and the thoughts that are crossing your mind are burdening you, and making your life terrible, consulting with a therapist is positively and highly recommended. It would help you get the clinical route to solve the mental health issues you have before it gets worse.

Talkspace is one of the most innovative apps developed for the niche of mental health, and it connects people in need of professional therapy with the licensed therapist. It is not easy for people to open up these days, but researchers say that people who cannot open face to face, find it easier to do so over the call or text. It is this medium that Talkspace uses to help people get the professional therapy they need. It aligns their emotions back in line and helps them reconstruct their lives positively. Talkspace is cheaper and more flexible, and the best part is that it is entirely private, discreet and available round the clock. The users can connect with the therapist couple of times a day, and if needed, a video call can also be arranged.

Talkspace recently informed the press that after the Trump’s win in the Presidential election, it has been getting a lot of members, mostly women, and millennials. The business of Talkspace has been growing exponentially, but Oren Frank said that it is hard to conclude that the surge is due to the election and not the typical rise in anxiety and stress in the lives of people.

 

Insurance Executive Octavio Lazari Is Bradesco’s New CEO According To Chairman Luiz Carlos Trabuco

The wait is over. Seven Bradesco executives were in the running to replace Luiz Carlos Trabuco as CEO of the bank, and Octavio Lazari, the president of Bradesco’s insurance division, Seguros, got the job. Fifty-four-year-old Lazari has forty years of service with Bradesco, so he has a pretty good idea what needs to happen internally as well as externally over the next ten years in order to keep the bank profitable.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco, the former CEO, will still be around to help Lazari deal with the issues that make banking in Brazil so profitable. Lazari is no stranger when it comes to making money. While he was president of Seguros, his division was responsible for more than 30 percent of the bank’s profit.

Lazari is the second Seguros president to fill the bank’s CEO job. Luiz Carlos Trabuco was president of the insurance division from 2003 to 2009. He got the bank’s top job at the end of 2009, and Bradesco is a better bank because of his leadership. Trabuco was a bank trainee in 1969. That’s when retiring Chairman Lázaro de Mello Brandão gave Trabuco a chance to prove himself as a banker. Luiz didn’t have a banking education, so Brandão wasn’t sure Trabuco would cut it as a banker even though Luiz has a post-graduate degree in psychology and philosophy degree from the University of Sao Paulo. Brandão wasn’t disappointed with Trabuco’s banking skills. Trabuco went from trainee to vice-president in record-breaking time, according to some bank employees.

Trabuco is 67 now, so he’s too old to continue as the bank’s CEO. Brandão’s retirement in 2017 gave Trabuco the opportunity to move into the chairman’s office. He took the job knowing the bank is facing several challenges in 2018. Brazil’s economy is getting stronger, but the bank still has to deal with the massive influx of customers using the Internet and their cellphones as banking devices. Bradesco’s IT department is ahead of the market right now, but there is the fear that IT Vice-President Mauricio Machado de Minas will need more help in terms of new programs and more IT people to keep up with the mobile banking demand.

Plus, Bradesco is still dealing with the absorption of HSBC’s Brazilian operation. The HSBC acquisition is generating more profit, but now that the bank has more than 5,300 bank branches there’s fear some of them will drag the bank’s profit down. And the thousands of ATMs across the country need constant attention. Their future viability also needs attention. Lazari recently said the bank will not be in acquisition mode in 2018, but the investor pressure to keep the bank’s stock moving in the right direction may alter those plans.

Even though Mauricio Machado de Minas didn’t get the CEO job, and the other five executives are out of the running too, they still hold important positions. Team building is one of Lazari’s priorities, so investors can expect some internal changes once Lazari gets the approval of the stockholders are the annual meeting on March 12. Lázaro de Mello Brandão, the oldest banker in the history of banking is retiring, but retirement doesn’t mean staying home and watching telenovelas. Mr. Brandão will still have a desk and an opinion. Trabuco welcomes his decision to stay around the bank until all the changes are in place. At 91, Lázaro de Mello Brandão is still as sharp as he was when he took over as chairman when the bank’s founder Amador Aguiar passed away in 1991.

Investors on Wall Street like the new CEO. And they like the fact that Trabuco will still make the tough decisions with him.

TMS Health Solutions – Redefining Psychiatric Health

TMS Health Solutions was created by Dr. Richard Bermudez with the objectives to provide groundbreaking and innovative approaches to patient-centered care. TMS Health Solutions is a team composed of personnel and clinicians who are committed to providing treatment, research, and education for individuals experiencing mental health problems which include all forms of depression, including clinical depression.

Clinically speaking, depression is a medical health condition that happens when mood-regulating parts of the brain do not function properly. People with depression show feelings of intense sadness and isolation. This is linked to loss of interest in doing activities that promote please, trouble in sleeping and loss of appetite, which often leads self-destruction.

Self-destructive symptoms include: constant anxiety, having trouble with concentration when doing daily activities, persistent anxiety, feeling hopeless or worthless, contemplating death, and hurting oneself. When someone experiences the said symptoms for more than two weeks then there is a great possibility that the person has depression.

Clinical depression, on the other hand, is a more severe case of depression that occurs when somebody is overly stressed or/and has natural deviations in biochemistry. Mild to severe cases of clinical depression may ultimately lead to hospitalization. Comparing to feelings of being sad which eventually goes away, depression persists, and without medical intervention could be quite self-destructive.

People with depression hardly recognize that they have the condition and are suffering from it. This makes it difficult for them to admit that they need help. And since depression is considered disgraceful and still unaccepted by a majority within the society – the provision of treatment is inhibited.

Although obtaining the correct treatment does take time relief can be found with the emergence of effective and new therapy treatment options, which are being carried out by the TMS Health Solutions and TMS therapy Parnassus clinical team.

The teams at TMS therapy Parnassus and TMS Health Solutions are dedicated professionals who continuously help patients by giving them the best care practice that is possible. They also foster respect and life-long collaboration internally and externally making their therapeutic services and practices more efficient. This allows flexibility in schedule and lowers the demands for administrative /managerial functions.

As such, clinical practitioners are able to deliver a highly personalized approach, contribute to the company’s expansion, and have a better and more balanced work-life state of affairs.

TMS Health Solutions have the main office in Union Square, San Francisco, California and offices at Sacramento, Roseville, Oakland, and UCSF.

Betsy DeVos

In 1958, Elisabeth was born into the wealthy Prince family. Her family long held conservative political views. Her name changed from Elisabeth Prince to DeVos after her marriage to Amway heir Dick DeVos. The couple went on to parent four children and continued work on their political and business endeavors, working to find solutions to social issues through innovation. For over 30 years, Betsy has participated in politics, beginning with her days at Calvin College. There she gained an interest in campus politics. She has worked tirelessly for the advancement of education reform. Overtime, she has made efforts to expand the charter school system. DeVos has also been an advocate for the use of vouchers, which allows for public funding for private and religious based school education. In addition to education, Mrs. DeVos has prominent roles on local board committees, helps to foster advancements in technology and is the current chairman of her family’s foundation. She was recently interviewed by Philanthrophy regarding her work on school choice and educational reform.

 

When asked about how she felt about the current progress of school choice, DeVos expressed optimism about the accelerated growth of the program. There are a quarter of a million students, from 17 out of 50 states, that participate in 33 private school choice programs. In 2012, new programs were added from states like Pennsylvania and Mississippi. Recent polling showed the popularity of educational choice. Mrs. DeVos also explained how people are paying more attention to how public schools are no longer as successful. She discusses how vouchers and educational tax credits can greatly benefit students seeking a better route for their education.

 

Philanthrophy also inquired about what sparked Betsy’s interest in educational reform. She explained how it was a culmination of multiple experiences. She noticed how parents worked tirelessly and made financial sacrifices to send their children to schools that fostered safe, learning, loving and challenging environments. Mrs. DeVos understood how many parents did not have the same resources as she did to make the best school choice decision for their children. This led to her and her family supporting students at Potter’s House Christian School, helping to start scholarships for low income families. In turn this helped her to see the bigger picture of education reform for all students. Learn more: http://www.betsydevos.com/policy-involvement/

 

Using her political platform, Mrs. DeVos has worked tirelessly so that all students can know they matter. She has had both successes and failures during this quest. One major success happened in Florida where the Tax Credit Scholarship Program is offered to students. Over 50,000 students in Florida have the option to attend a school that their family is able to choose. DeVos wishes for both Democrats and Republicans to work together to do what is right for the nations children, and says that education needs to be non-partisan.

 

She has also discussed how there are certain education reform strategies that seems promising for students. Digital and blended learning is being implemented in the majority of schools. Parents are also opting for homeschooling and charter schools as a way to take more charge over their kids academically rigorous educations. Whatever Mrs. DeVos does, she works hard, spending her time to offer methods to help improve the American Education System. She firmly believes that each and every parent should have every opportunity available. This will help their children achieve their full potential by being better able to choose the best equipped education setting.
