Me da consquillas

Antes que nada quiero agradecer sus preguntas y preocupaciones para el tema de vacunación de niños y cuál es mi sentir de este tema. Se VALE tener miedo y TENER preguntas. Soy padre de familia y comparto este proceso con ustedes.

Como padre y familiares tenemos muchos sentimientos encontrados, pero sabemos que queremos proteger con todo lo que tenemos a nuestros hijos e hijas.

No voy a platicar en este post sobre los datos científicos, la información es clara que estar protegido con la vacuna es la mejor opción en este momento (chequen loa videos pasados que hice).

En este video les comparto una ventana a mi seres queridos. El tema de la vacunación puede ser un tema que nuestros hijos puedan y deban de ser partícipes.

Cual es la mejor opción y que opino: te lo demuestro con este video.

Quería esperar un par de días para compartirlo contigo ustedes para darles una respuesta completa de todo el evento de la vacunación de mis hijos.

La realidad que el efecto más grande que tuve durante este proceso es el siguiente:


Checa el video. Vas a poder observar y escuchar un frase muy simpática:

🌟“It tickles” / “Hace cosquillas” 🌟

Mamás y papás:
Por favor aquí estoy para preguntas, abro las puertas completamente para poder ir virtualmente a sus grupos de padres de familia, religiosos o lo que usted considere para platicar sobre el tema.

Les comparto el link del video

Mientras: por favor lean la información de @vacunateya @aap @ninabrain @epstein @unbais @kff @andalequeesperas @thisiourshot @lcac.News

Before anything I do want to thank your questions and concerns about the issue of vaccination about children and what is my feeling on this issue.

It is OK to be afraid and HAVE questions. I am a parent and I share this feelings with you. As parents and relatives we have many mixed feelings, but we know that we want to protect our sons and daughters with everything we have.

I am not going to talk in this post about scientific data, the information is clear that being protected with the vaccine is the best option at this time (check out the past videos I made).

In this video I share a window of my loved ones.

The conversation of vaccines can be an issue that our children can and should participate in.

Which is the best option and what do I think:

Simply watch this video.

I wanted to wait a couple of days to share it with you to give you a complete answer about the entire event of the vaccination of my children.

The reality was that the biggest side effect they I had during this process was the following:


Check out the video. You will be able to observe and listen to a very nice phrase:

Moms and dads: Please, here I am for questions and concerns, I open the doors completely to be able to go virtually to your of parents, school, companies, unions, religious or whatever you need to talk about this subject.

🌟 “It tickles” / “It tickles” 🌟

What would happened if mental health problems would be seen equal as medical problems: I think more lives would be saved

My Name is Ilan Shapiro, I was born in a small city, called México City, a father, pediatrician and Medical Director for Health Education and Wellness at AltaMed.

I’m extremely humbled to have a great team Veronica O. and Sandy N. that in synergy we share education and wellness with our community. Also, with #Pantaleon and #LionsGate por abrir una conversación tan difícil con nuestra comunidad por medio de #LasPildorasdeMiNovio

Since the times of my Abuelita, mental health carried a big burden on the person affected and their family. This movie opens that conversation in the community of how none of us can separate our bodies from our minds.

My Abuelita tried to cure a lot of things with vick vapor rub and te de manzanilla (and sometimes a touch of violeta valenciana), but mental health does not respond to that. 

Mental health is not a taboo subject. We must, as a community, come together and have an open conversation about mental health and its impact on a person, on families and our society at-large.

When a patient comes to me has a pulled muscle, and I send them to Physical therapy with the recommendation on certain medications, there is no doubt on what to do.

Why is it so different when there is a chemical imbalance in the brain causing a big shift in mental health and I recommended medication and therapy, why is it so hard to have that conversation?

The stigma against mental illness is real. If you have any doubt, consider there is a median delay of 10 years between the onset of mental health symptoms and receiving healthcare. One reason for this delay is that people try to hide their mental illness due to the fear of being judged.

Each one of us needs to play a role to eliminate the stigma of mental illness. Here are three ways to make an impact. 

1.    Education- In 2017, there were an estimated 46.6 million adults in the United States with mental illness. This number represents about 1 in 5 adults.

2.    Empathy- Refrain from judgement. Suffering from mental illness can become so unbearable that it affects one’s ability to function. One may even experience suicidal thoughts in an effort to escape the suffering.

3.    Advocacy- Be an advocate for raising mental health awareness. Support groups that advocate, educate and care for individuals and families affected by mental illness. 

Putting this in context Almost 18% of the US is Latino, 15% have a diagnosable mental illness, that is 8.9 million people, MORE THAN the population of NY City

 • U.S.-born Hispanics report higher rates for most psychiatric disorders than Hispanic immigrants.

• Studies have shown that older Hispanic adults and Hispanic youth are especially vulnerable to psychological stresses associated with immigration and acculturation

• Approximately 1 in 10 Hispanics with a mental disorder use mental health services from a primary care physician, while only 1 in 20 receive such services from a mental health specialist.

Several studies have found that bilingual patients are evaluated differently when interviewed in English as opposed to Spanish and that Hispanics are more frequently undertreated.

At AltaMed Health Services is the nation’s largest federally qualified community health centers in the nation. We have 52 sites across Los Angeles and Orange counties serving more than 300,000.

Understanding the need, nearly a decade ago, AltaMed began integrating behavioral health services into the primary care, because we recognized that mental health affects every aspect of a person’s well-being. This type of model in vulnerable communities can help start the healing process, and we’ve had the opportunity to provide services to thousands of underserved patients in the past years under the leadership of Dr. Sandra Pisano.

We all can miss the symptoms that are happening to our loved ones or even to us; some of these mental health challenges do not present as an obvious rash, a fever or a cough. We do not have a straightforward blood lab test for a diagnosis– but we do have a lot of people who can help identify the symptoms. It starts with you– we can all make a difference. We can help ourselves and help our loved ones by letting them know we care and there’s access to help. 

We are amazingly well versed in chisme language; let’s spread the word that is ok to feel different, the same way that people have migraines, people can be depressed, have adhd/add or anxiety. Do be afraid to ask if someone is acting differently, maybe, just maybe, because you showed that you cared, you are saving a life.
