    It's what Harvard medical researchers call Trump Derangement Syndrome. "In a 2017 essay for a book co-edited by psychiatrists from Harvard Medical School and the Yale School of Medicine, clinical psychologist Jennifer Panning of Evanston, Ill., called the condition 'Trump Anxiety Disorder,' distinguishing it from a generalized anxiety disorder because 'symptoms were specific to the election of Trump and the resultant unpredictable sociopolitical climate,'" Matt Kwong reported for the CBC. "Though not an official diagnosis, the symptoms include feeling a loss of control and helplessness, and fretting about what's happening in the country and spending excessive time on social media,...
  • Toronto shooter's family says he had 'severe mental health challenges'

    07/24/2018 12:23:35 PM PDT · by BBell · 39 replies
    TORONTO (AP) -- A man whose family said he suffered from psychosis and depression fired a handgun into restaurants and cafes in a lively Toronto neighborhood, killing a 10-year-old girl and an 18-year-old woman and wounding 13 others in an attack that has shaken the confidence of many in the normally safe city. Authorities on Monday evening identified the suspect as Faisal Hussain, 29, of Toronto, who died in an exchange of gunfire with police. It was not immediately clear whether he killed himself or was killed by police. The mass shooting in Toronto's Greektown district Sunday night came just...

    Eating a lot of hot dogs, beef jerky, salami and other processed meats could do more than just add a few extra pounds — it could cause a serious mental condition called mania. That’s according to a new study from scientists at Johns Hopkins Medicine published July 18 (National Hot Dog Day) in the journal Molecular Psychiatry. The study found a link between consumption of nitrates, which are chemicals used to cure and process meat snacks, and episodes of mania, “a serious neuropsychiatric condition associated with significant morbidity and mortality.” Read more here: https://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation-world/national/article215089580.html#storylink=cpy

    When The Naked Farmer came to town looking for people to get their kit off for a good cause, dairy farmer Kerry Wilson was approached to take part. He and his partner Paul Wilson agreed, though Kerry had reservations about not having the right body type. "Gee whiz, I'm 56. Does it matter?" Kerry asked. It didn't. The cause, which raises awareness about the mental health of Australian farmers, hit a personal chord with the couple. Kerry and Paul are fifth-generation farmers who live and work together near Nimbin in the northern rivers of New South Wales. "You carry a...

    The mental health industry isn’t what it used to be, although there are plenty of brilliant and compassionate analysts and counselors who help lots of people. Effective treatment depends a great deal on what is considered healthy and normal. And that keeps changing with the times, sometimes based on demands from identity groups. Not long ago, when a guy gazed in the mirror and saw a girl’s reflection, most analysts would have concluded that he needed help working through his delusion. Now we’re told that anyone who thinks the “girl” in the mirror is still actually a guy is the...

    A Mississippi sheriff testified in court Wednesday that a Stone County man admitted he choked his mother until she passed out, then cut her head off. Sherry Johnson's body was discovered after deputies conducted a welfare check at her home on June 6. Her family became concerned after they had not heard from her for a few days. Terrelle Johnson, who lived with his mother, initially told authorities that his mother was on a cruise when they arrived at the home. When deputies entered the home, they found a bloodstained bedroom and then his mother's body outside, the SunHerald reports.

Several years ago I joined LinkedIn more to try to connect with former Army buddies, not trying to get a job. Got an email from them today that "You appeared in 3 searches this week" The searchers were: Alabama Department of Mental Health and Veterans Evaluation Services Stuff like this causes conspiracy theories and paranoia. Why are the VA and Alabama Mental Health searching LinkedIn? Possible gun control comes to mind. As far as I know I have not initiated any recent...

They want people need to feel much more comfortable with their everyday mental wellbeing and have the practical tools to support...

    Just days after the tragic death of fashion icon Kate Spade, new government research sheds light on a disturbing increase in suicides in the United States. The report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that suicide rates have risen dramatically across most of the country in the past three decades. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. and is one of just three leading causes that are on the rise. The rate of suicide in the U.S. rose nearly 30 percent between 1999 and 2016. In 2016, nearly 45,000 Americans age 10 or...

    Nearly four years before school shooter Nikolas Cruz gunned down 17 students and educators at a Parkland high school, he confided in a therapist that he saw himself in a dream drenched in human blood. A May 3, 2014, notation in a Broward County schools psychiatric file said Cruz “reported [a dream] last week of him killing people and covered in blood. He smiled and told the therapist that sometimes he says things for shock value.” After Cruz’s disclosure to his therapist at the alternative Cross Creek School, administrators developed a “safety plan” to ensure the welfare of Cruz and...

    As this discussion of gun control and mental health continues to evolve, let's keep this quote in mind from one of the Left's domestic terrorist: "I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people and they were dead serious."

    A liberal-created failure that goes entirely ignored is the left's harmful agenda for society's most vulnerable people -- the mentally ill. Eastern State Hospital, built in 1773 in Williamsburg, Virginia, was the first public hospital in America for the care and treatment of the mentally ill. Many more followed. Much of the motivation to build more mental institutions was to provide a remedy for the maltreatment of mentally ill people in our prisons. According to professor William Gronfein at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, by 1955 there were nearly 560,000 patients housed in state mental institutions across the nation. By 1977,...

    Never mind that the FBI failed to heed and follow up on repeated and explicit warnings about Nikolas Cruz before his shooting rampage in Parkland, Florida. Never mind the FBI was too busy chasing phantom Russian collusion to locate a future killer that any nerd living in his parents' basement could have located with ease. According to mental health professional Jimmy Kimmel, Trump made Parkland happen by rescinding Obama administration regulations barring the mentally ill from getting guns:

Every Friday afternoon, she asks her students to take out a piece of paper and write down the names of four children with whom they’d like to sit the following week.

exceptional classroom citizen that week. All ballots are privately submitted to her. And every single Friday afternoon, after the students go home, she takes out those slips of...

    Raley said she’ll “take all the criticism and attacks” for her opinion because, as a teacher with two decades of experience, she has to worry about an active-shooter situation on a daily basis. The middle school teacher said over her almost two decades as an educator that she’s seen an increase in violence and a lack of compassion among students. “Until we, as a country, are willing to get serious and talk about mental health issues, lack of available care for the mental health issues, lack of discipline in the home, horrendous lack of parental support when the schools are...

    President Trump earned a perfect score on a medical test that is used to detect early signs of dementia or Alzheimer's disease. The test, called the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, was conducted during his routine physical on Friday, at the insistence of the president, who wanted to tamp down rumors about his mental abilities that have surfaced from his critics. Dr. Ronny Jackson, the White House doctor who conducted the exam, said that he did not believe it was necessary because he hadn't noticed any issues with Trump's memory after spending the past year with him. The doctor's quarters are in...
