A line of showers and storms wcbi new at ten stinger three sexually transmitted diseases are at all time high nationwide.

Mississippi has the highest cases of gonorrhea and the third highest of chlamydia and syphilis.

Courtney ann jackson explains how one organization is working to decrease those numbers.

Sexually transmitted diseases---stds--they're part of the hush-hush conversations in many parts of mississippi.

"anything that has anything to do with sex is associated with stigma.

But unfortunately the data shows that stigmatizing it doesn't make it go away."

Director of organizational development at my brother's keeper and open arms healthcare deja abdul-haqq says that's got to change.

"i don't think we need to wait on the nation to come up with a national solution.

I believe n the state of mississippi we have a situation that's of epidemic proportion."

Access is a complicating factor when it comes down to preventive testing and treatment that could follow.

Most clinics don't offer a free screening for all stds.

But open arms healthcare center in jackson is trying to change that.

"we're living in an area where these types of rates are becoming the norm.

We have to change the norms with standard of care.

So, the becoming a healthier u program is changing the norm and creating an answer or solution."

They encourage those who are sexually active to get tested every six months.

As far as treatment if you test positive?

"chlamydia, syphilis and gonorrhea are treatable with antibiotics and pencilin.

And that's the saving grace.

It's not something you have to live with.

But hiv is transmitted the same way those stis are and right now there is no cure."

But even before that---abdul- haqq believes the state should have a better sex education standard and teach young people early about the importance of protected sex.

Courtney ann jackson, wcbi news centered place monitor with quentin centered place monitor with quentin there's a new psychiatrist now walking the halls at baptist memorial hospital..

In august... doctor jayce mis-kul was introduced as the newest member on staff... our quentin smith catches up with the doctor.... quentin..

It wasn't easy for the hospital to fill this position?

It wasn't scott..... the hospital had been searching for three years trying to find another psychiatrist because they were under- staffed... with this new addition, hospital leaders say they can now expand and offer more services to its patients... with his name now on display outside his office, dr. jayce miskel walks into his a new position at baptist memorial hospital focused and ready to make a difference in peoples lives.

"i am mostly doing inpatient work.

People that come into the er that are having thoughts of hurting themselves, thoughts of thoughts of hurting others, and any psychotic type of features which is basically like hallucinations.

Whenever they come into the unit i'm the one that helps see them, evaluate them, get them on medicine, and try to get them set to where they are stable to be able to go back to outpatient.."

The psychiatrist says mental health issues are things people deal with daily, and admits, often times there's a stigma attached to it.... " there's no vital signs that shows exactly what somebody's depression level is, sometimes some people i think that it's all in their hed and they are worried about going to check out.

I really think that's where the stigma comes from."

Miskel says it's his goal to meet each patient where they're at, find out what works for them ..

And get them the help they need... " what i really like, especially on the inpatient side is just seeing people come in in a crisis, and in 3 to 5 days, sometimes more sometimes less, you seem to turn around and it's a big difference and you really see the difference you made in peoples lives and that's what i enjoy about it."

The hospital has been longing to add another psychiatrist to its staff.

" we have been attempting to find a second psychiatrist for almost 3 years.

Psychiatry is a very limited field as far as people who are qualified and want to come to this area.@ with the hiring of miskel, hospital leaders say this helps provide better services to patients.

Hopefully that's not an allergy trigger for you// here's more in our health talk with baptist// in addition to ragweed, what are some other triggers for fall allergies?

The fall can be especially difficult for people who are sensitive to mold and ragweed pollen.

These seasonal elements aren't the only triggers that can make symptoms worse at this time of year.

Unseasonably warm temperatures can prolong hay fever symptoms. while ragweed is the most common trigger, in some parts of the country goldenrod english plantain, lamb's quarters pigweed and others can all trigger fall allergies.

Mold is another fall trigger.

You may think of mold growing in your basement, bathroom or damp areas of your house, but mold spores love wet spots outside.

Piles of damp leaves, compost piles and damp soil are ideal breeding grounds for mold.

Mold spores are light, very small and easily inhaled.

Raking leaves agitates pollen and mold spores.

Don't forget dust mites.

While they're common in the summer months, they can get stirred in the air the first time you turn on the heater in the fall months.

Dust mites can trigger sneezing, wheezing and runny noses.

Join us next time for health talk with baptist when we will discuss how to protect yourself against fall allergies.
