Depressed, anxious, and substance-abusing people can beat themselves up for being defective. And psychiatrists and psychologists routinely validate and intensify their sense of defectiveness by telling them that they have, for example, a chemical-imbalance defect, a genetic defect, or a cognitive-behavioral defect.

But new legislation, The Act Relative to Substance Use Treatment, Education, and Prevention (STEP) currently before the Massachusetts state legislature (H.3944) could expand the scope of involuntary treatment and reduce judicial oversight. This proposal is an ill-considered response to a public health crisis. To be sure, policymakers face an understandable pressure to take decisive action. But this approach fails to balance that imperative for speed and public confidence with sound scientific, legal, and ethical principles.

Mental health peer support is a cost-effective, evidence-based practice in which an individual with a lived experience of mental illness provides guidance and mentorship to another individual with lived experience. By ensuring a smooth transition from county jails to community mental health centers, peer support re-entry programs can close the revolving door for inmates with a mental illness.

The Healthy City will address the question “What does the healthy city look like?” through the image of a wheel, with the hub as “access” and the spokes connecting this hub to three areas: a healthy lifestyle (health care and wellness in all its forms); healthy food and healthy eating habits; and mental health care.

Humans, like all social animals, have a fundamental need for contact with others. This deeply ingrained instinct helps us to survive; it's much easier to find food, shelter, and other necessities with a group than alone.

According to a study done by three members of the Psychiatry Department at Duke University Medical Center, the rate of presidents who lived with mental illness is comparable, or even higher than, the general public.

For some time now negotiation researchers have been telling us we can get ahead by using tactical emotional expressions to manipulate the other party. Show anger to make them worry about threats, or disappointment to nudge them into feeling guilty, and you can increase the chances of getting what you want. But new research in the Journal of Applied Psychology suggests that while these techniques may yield immediate advantage, strategically they can lead to disaster.

With the Presidential campaigns in full swing, it is little surprise that President Barack Obama’s recent proposals on gun access have been met with political spin instead of objective analysis. Both sides are looking to make over generalizations without looking at the practical numbers behind the real issue that should address: our mental health crisis.
 
 
New York Times

There are many issues on which a large majority of experts agree but a small number hold a dissenting view. Is it possible to give voice to experts on both sides — standard journalistic practice — without distorting the public’s perception of the level of disagreement?

"Every show is personal. Every topic, every theme is always personal," Jean-Raymond told Mic on Saturday. "It's not like I'm making something that I don't understand — that I didn't live through. Every time that I am able to talk about something or get it off my chest it's always a freer feeling."

Is there anything wrong with being a euphoric visionary artist? That question cuts to the essence of “Touched With Fire,” Paul Dalio’s extraordinarily sensitive, nonjudgmental exploration of bipolar disorder and creativity. When Marco (Luke Kirby) and Carla (Katie Holmes), poets with the condition also known as manic depression, meet at a group-therapy session in a mental hospital, their emotional combustion undercuts any available treatment.
