Morning Blend 19 February, 2014


The school bullying issue has once again been propelled into the spotlight following the death of a teenager who was allegedly accidentally stabbed while seeking advice on how best to deal with bullies. We talk with Dr. Cyprian Strachan about the complex issue, and the overly aggressive attitudes that appear to be commonplace in not just our schools, but throughout our society.
Callers also share their or their children’s disturbing school bullying experiences.

We also discuss recognizing mental health problems in a loved one. Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre Nursing Officer Joyann Curry gives us the warning signs and behaviors, as well as suggestions on how best to get assistance on this matter.
And Sandilands Public Relations Manager Betsy Duvalier tells us about their “Volunteer Programme”, which is desperately looking for volunteers to help in a number of areas at the centre, including assistance on the wards, office/clerical work, and recreational or occupational therapy. To volunteer call 364-9618.

And “In The News”, the government signs an amended heads of agreement for a $140 million expansion of the Albany development in southwest New Providence. PM Perry Christie says the project will create 1,000 jobs in the construction phase and about 300 permanent jobs, and will transform the development into the Monaco of the Caribbean.
Listeners have mixed views on the issue.
