Help Fund Study of Technique Stopping Suicidal Thoughts

Donation protected
Need to Fund Self-Study to Prove Approach of the eclectic smash up of clinical interventions I developed over the pandemic to treat kids with Autism and PTSD does stop Suicidal Thoughts surfacing in the brain in just 2 hours!!!

Hello I am Missy, a.k.a. Melissa Tatar-Pickersgill MS, NCC, LPC, BSP. I have clinical cases in which clients reported to me their Suicidal Thoughts Stopped and continued to do so for at least 6 months plus. Suicidal Ideation surfaces thoughts in the mind to instruct itself to withdraw from others and/or to flash images in the mind to provide visual messages to prime the mind-body connection for what to expect itself to experience during their "attempt to survive" the situation.

I facilitate a clinician directed approach to coach my client how to re-wire their ANS within a Brainspotting framework utilizing EMDR, IFS, Self-Directed Neuroplasticity Mechanics, Direct Suggestion, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Color Therapy, Sound Therapy, and Forensic Questions. The therapy approach provides the client a safe environment and easy to do technique that can't be done wrong to use their mind to direct intentions/messages to their brain to adapt the strategy, because it is "now" safe, thus permission is provided to the body to try another direction (electrical signals in the ANS are bi-directional). Mental Illness is only present in the brain when the mind is set/stuck in a physical state of conciseness called a mindset. Meaning all humans can for any reason during their lifetime experience each of the symptoms listed within the mental health diagnostic manual; however, the difference between mental illness and wellness is that a healthy mind can easily shift with fluidity into or out from all different types of mindsets.

The treatment coaches the client to identify its internal voice to assist the mind to adapt fluidity (movement) within the mindset with a physical state of consciousness habitually selecting the play dead, freeze, response to all threats. The brian is more than cooperative to support the mind's intention to update new strategies, especially if the old strategy is not energy efficient. Survival strategies requires a lot of energy (mental and physical burnout) for the brain to surface thoughts and images. Therefore, to stop an energy hogging ANS strategy that also requires a lot of priming energy just to live/be seen within any environment is a benefit to the mind and body to rewire.

It requires an evidence based therapy for PTSD to rewire the ANS and my life/Brain-Hacks have all of them included, minus neurofeedback, which I hope to add in the future.

Your donation will provide me with the GIFT OF (I can afford it) TIME to write the research study and submit it to the Bucks County Department of Health

Afford the rent to keep open my The Brain-Hack Cafe, by Emotionally Rewired, LLC, which is a fully licensed, insured, and bonded holistic & clinical mental health practice designed to provide clients access to immersion learning therapy and to be a place for the community to be provided easy affordable access to the top trauma-informed mental health interventions, often not accessible to the general public who rely on Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP but I do accept all of these insurances.

I must Hire a part-time business manager to help me comply with paperwork, taxes, etc. I currently hired a virtual assistant but I prefer someone in the cafe with me and with business management experience.

It is my hope that the study will help provide evidence that no-story needed to be retold brain-hacks are safe and effective to be taught to the general population to self-treat emotional stress and prevent emotional shutdowns and dis-regulation that often leads to violence.

I need time to write up also another grant application to receive funds from the PA Opioid Grant

Why? An overactive ANS window of tolerance = addiction (relapse), and an underactive window of tolerance = depression/shutdown states that cause suicidal ideation, freeze responses, withdrawal, etc

As a trauma therapist, my clients who are AA and NA sponsors often seek help because they suffer from vicarious trauma (VT). Worse, sponsors are not informed about VT, its adverse effects on their own mental health, and relapse risks. The grant I plan to write is for this purpose... to educate AA and NA sponsors about VT and what they CAN do about it, as well as receive access to treatment care either at the Brain-Hack Cafe in Morrisville, PA, or at a popup event held somewhere all over the state of PA ( or via virtual events).

But that is not all....
When you donate, you will also be contributing to my mission to get the Brain-Hacks Children's Books I have written, designed to calm the nervous system in children but specifically anyone with Autism/ADHD/ PTSD to be professionally translated into Ukrainian and then sent to the Ukraine to provide emotional regulation self-help support to the kids and parents who also must manage daily sensory intrusion in addition to their war shock.

I am grateful to you for the time you spent today to care to read about how I hope to serve people with the need-to-know tips I call life/brain-hacks that easily achieve self-regulation within the mind-body, at my dream, The Brain-Hack Cafe by Emotionally Rewired, LLC.
