Mental Health Reform vs. Gun ControlDr. Jonathan JacksonDirector, Center for Psychological ServicesDirector, Clinical TrainingDerner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies Adelphi University"A new survey conducted by Wakefield Research for Adelphi University's Center for Health Innovation asked 100 mental health professionals across the country about what is really needed to prevent gun violence, avoid mental health stigmas and help communities prepare for the worst. The poll found a majority (62 percent) of psychologists, psychiatrists and clinical social workers believe gun-law reforms are more likely to help prevent gun violence than reforming the mental healthcare system. While much can be done to help an individual who may become violent, there are no clear-cut solutions -- but almost all surveyed feel comfortable with their responsibility to notify an official when they believe a patient is likely to harm themselves or others. When it comes to disasters, mental health treatment is often disrupted, but 41 percent of respondents feel their community's mental health system is unprepared."Dr. Jackson holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, and certificates in psychoanalysis and cognitive behavior therapy. The Center for Psychological Services, which he leads, offers a range of specialized treatment programs for children, adolescents, and adults. He is based in Garden City, N.Y.Website: http://chi.adelphi.eduMedia Contact: Kali Chan,

Nurse Faculty and Clinical Leaders Must Be Trained in Mental Health Care Darlene CurleyExecutive DirectorJonas Center for Nursing Excellence"Alarming trends in our mental health care system, especially as they relate to veterans, are projected to continue and even worsen. Society needs to prepare for the long-term fallout, the magnitude of which cannot be fully projected at this time. Nurses are the first line of defense and an indispensable, underutilized resource for reversing woeful inadequacies in our strained health care system."Curley is executive director of The Jonas Center for Nursing Excellence, which just announced a $25 million philanthropic commitment specifically for nursing faculty and clinical leader training.Website: http://www.jonascenter.orgMedia Contact: Olivia Goodman,

Mediterranean Diet Making Its Way Into American Lifestyle Rachel Phillips-LutherVice President of Marketing Zoes Kitchen"Whether to reap the health and wellness benefits of the Mediterranean diet or through growth in sales of Mediterranean food staples, it's clear that Mediterranean is making its way into the mainstream American lifestyle."A recent study by The New England Journal of Medicine has confirmed the benefits of the Mediterranean diet, a lifestyle choice already practiced by millions of Americans. The study revealed that approximately 30 percent of heart attacks, strokes and deaths from heart disease can be prevented for those at high risk by embracing a diet rich in olive oil, fruits, vegetables, fish and beans.Phillips-Luther is vice president of marketing for Zoes Kitchen, a rapidly expanding Mediterranean-inspired fast-casual concept. She is available to provide commentary on the growing trend of Mediterranean moving mainstream in the U.S., as well as how it's shaking up the fast-casual space.Media Contact: Laura Schlecht,

2013 Trends in Home Automation Dion PerssonVice President of Business and StrategyNexia Home Intelligence"The home automation space is growing rapidly. In just two years, the industry will surge to $2.5 billion, which is a 30 percent growth in the number of homes featuring home automation systems. It is also predicted as one of the hottest trends of 2013 as consumers and home builders alike continue to look for smarter ways to remotely access and control their homes."Persson, an expert on home automation, is available to discuss what home automation actually means and how today's options are working harder to allow consumers to control lights, locks, thermostats, cameras and more, while also coordinating energy savings from their smartphone or tablet device regardless of location.Media Contact: Aimee Nicholls,
