Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Six (6) different episodes aired on the main digital channel of this locally produced show that interviews community leaders. (Two on SUN @ 11:30AM.) The show educates and informs viewers regarding current affairs and encourages viewers to participate. Episode # 635 The Community Affairs programming for NBC 5, Five Talk Street, aired on Sunday, Nov. 20, 2016 at 11:30 a.m. In this program, we featured an Okay to Say Mental Health Awareness Special. We discussed with the director of communications at the Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute about the Okay to Say Campaign. Okay to Say is a community-driven movement initiated by the Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute with support from community partners, like NBC 5, to increase public awareness that most mental illnesses are treatable and to offer messages of hope and recovery to Texans and their families. They are trying to dispel biases and stereotypes, and break down cultural barriers surrounding mental illness in Texas and beyond. The statewide effort launched with Emmitt Smith and Mark Cuban encourages Texans to add their voice through a social media campaign by adding their name to the pledge at okaytosay.org. In addition to the mental health awareness special, we discussed with assistant professor of pediatrics at UT Southwestern Medical Center the importance of intervention and early diagnosis for children. One in five children from age zero to eleven experience a mental disorder in a given year and 50 percent of all mental health conditions begin by age 14. In a 12 month period, more than half a million Texas children and adolescents have severe emotional disturbance that impair function at school and home. Next, we discussed mental health issues involving adults and a new study on how monitoring work productivity provides unique insight into whether a patient will require additional treatments to achieve long term remission. One in every six adults will have a diagnosable major depressive disorder in their lifetime; in a 12 month period nearly seven percent of adults will meet diagnostic criteria for depression. Depression, especially when left untreated, can be a significant drain on the American economy. Afterward, we discussed an overview of the prevalence of post-traumatic stress in the community. Lastly, board member and founding CEO of Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute discusses the Texas Veterans Family Alliance Grant Program. A program that will help improve quality of life for Texas veterans and their families by increasing access to mental health treatment and services. Also, discusses the passing of SB 55 in the 84th legislative session in moving towards increasing access to mental health care in the state of Texas. Episode #636 The Community Affairs programming for NBC 5, Five Talk Street, aired on Sunday, Dec. 4, 2016 at 11:30AM.

The Heard is a private, nonprofit organization that consists of a 289 acre nature preserve and museum. Their mission is to bring nature and people together through educational programs for all ages. We also had a discussion on The Greatest Gift Catalog Ever. The Greatest Gift Catalog Ever is a high quality holiday gift magazine that offers many alternatives to traditional gifts. This year, the catalog featured 25 local nonprofits, each with very specific needs. Donors can either make a straight donation to the organization of their choice, or they can obtain a holiday gift card in any amount for their friends or family to donate to any charity that they choose in the catalog. Next, executive dir3ector for the Soupmobile discusses Home for the Holidays campaign. With partnership from NBC 5 and the Dallas Omni Hotel, viewers are encouraged to five the minimum of $12 to raise enough money to help a homeless family have rent for an apartment, food, utilities for one year. Afterward, Director of Communications for Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute discusses the Okay To Say Campaign, which focuses on taking the stigma out of having mental health issues. Also, discusses the resources that are available for people having mental health issues during the holidays. Lastly, we discussed the 2016 Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl, featuring Louisiana Tech and the U.S. Naval Academy.
