Segment 1 (4:04): We start the show with local discrimination attorney Lindy Korn. Today we are discussing age discrimination. Lindy starts by talking about how discrimination causes health harm including physical health, mental health, or a flare up of a previous health diagnosis. She explains that that is why she tries to get her clients in and out of the system as quickly as possible to protect their health. And this leads to why the therapeutic community is such an important connection to what she does. Next we talk to Bradley Hamm, founder and therapist of A Peace of My Mind Licensed Clinical Social Work. We discuss how he helps our senior community and how there is a stigma of our generation to not share how they’re feeling. Finally, Bradley tells us the effects chronic stress has on our mental and physical health. To learn more about how Lindy can help you, please call 716-856-KORN or please visit HERE!
