    While the science suggests educators should end virtual schooling, many schools remain closed to millions of young people whose mental health is tanking.Almost a year after COVID-19 reached the United States and government-mandated lockdowns began shutting down nearly every aspect of American life, many schools across the nation have yet to reopen for in-person learning. While the science and data, previously ignored by the virtue-signaling left, suggests that educational leaders should seriously consider ending virtual schooling for the sake of students’ mental health and academic advancement, many school districts remain closed, offering only online classes or virtual learning options to...

    President Trump on Wednesday blasted Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) following a heated meeting at the White House, questioning her mental fitness and commitment to the country. "Nancy Pelosi needs help fast! There is either something wrong with her 'upstairs,' or she just plain doesn’t like our great Country," Trump tweeted. "She had a total meltdown in the White House today," he continued. "It was very sad to watch. Pray for her, she is a very sick person!" Pelosi's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. SNIP

    Through all the divisive issues of 2020, Americans have shared at least one common trait: skyrocketing stress. The American Psychological Association calls it a “national mental health crisis” with potentially “serious health and social consequences for years to come.” Columbia University professor of clinical psychiatry Michael Liebowitz said the pandemic is "a huge added stress factor." This makes the spike in anti-anxiety medications understandable. Prescriptions rose by 34 percent in a matter of months when the pandemic broke out. People have attempted to decrease their stress through entertainment, alcohol, and prescription or recreational drugs. In Oregon, its citizens just voted...

    A brilliant Ryan Long video reminds us that, while we’re facing a well-organized leftist opponent, many of its troops are deeply damaged people. This is my day for reminding conservatives that one of the things that will work in our favor over the long run is the fact that leftists are crazy. In the short term, that makes them dangerous opponents because they have no morals or natural stopping points. In the long term, however, they cannot sustain their impetus. People this insane eventually implode (although the implosions are ugly and can have far-reaching effects). Preliminarily, let me remind you...

    The quality of life here has dwindled, and mental health has taken a hit. I had to start seeing a therapist because every other coping outlet has been eliminated.It’s more than eight months after the March 20, 2020 lockdown orders Gov. Gavin Newson placed on California. Most of the state is in a lockdown again, and we are now subject to a curfew, although no one can explain how that is going to “slow the spread.” Every freedom that I enjoy feels impeded upon, and simple outings can lead to a storm of frustration as I feel like everyone around...
  • Rapid Mental Rejuvenation: Experimental Drug Reverses Age-Related Cognitive Decline Within Days

    Rapid mental rejuvenation in old mice suggests age-related losses may be broadly reversible. Just a few doses of an experimental drug can reverse age-related declines in memory and mental flexibility in mice, according to a new study by UC San Francisco scientists. The drug, called ISRIB, has already been shown in laboratory studies to restore memory function months after traumatic brain injury (TBI), reverse cognitive impairments in Down Syndrome, prevent noise-related hearing loss, fight certain types of prostate cancer, and even enhance cognition in healthy animals. In the new study, published on December 1, 2020, in the open-access journal eLife,...

    MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough said Thursday on “Morning Joe” that people who believe President Donald Trump are in a “cult” and should “get help from mental health providers.” Discussing the coronavirus pandemic, co-anchor Mika Brzezinski said, “The question is why others won’t lead to save the lives of the American people. Here we are at 274,000 deaths, and that is shocking because it is stupid that we’re here. It’s downright stupid.”

    Anti-terror police were today called in after a man stabbed a Marks & Spencer worker and a shopper just hours after all 'non-essential' stores reopened in England. A 57-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following the attack in Burnley at around 9.30am and remains in custody, Lancashire Police said. The two women, a Marks & Spencer employee in her 40s and a shopper in her 60s, were rushed to hospital with serious knife injuries which are not thought to be life threatening. Officers said the stabbing was not being treated as a terrorist incident, although counter-terror detectives...

    New HBO documentary depicts parents propagandizing their children in radical gender theory and robbing them of life in their natural bodies.A new HBO documentary, titled “Transhood,” is pushing the limits of what America understands as the transgender rights movement. Following four so-called transgender children, aged 4, 7, 12, and 15, the documentary’s description says it demonstrates “how the kids are challenged and transformed as they experience the complexity of their identities.” While through the lens of leftist LGBT advocacy this might sound empowering, from a rational point of view, it is far from a positive development.In a scene shared by...

    COVID-19 has been linked to a greater risk of developing mental health disorders, a new study from Britain’s Oxford University states. The report published in The Lancet peer-reviewed medical journal found that 1 in 5 COVID-19 survivors will receive a mental health diagnosis within 90 days of infection. Among the most common are anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, insomnia and dementia. “People have been worried that COVID-19 survivors will be at greater risk of mental health problems, and our findings ... show this to be likely,” Oxford professor of psychiatry Paul Harrison said, according to Reuters. The Oxford study evaluated...

    March 28 – very early in the pandemic – an article that I felt at the time received far too little attention. “Drugs, Suicide, and Crime: Empirical Estimates of the Human Toll of the Shutdown” by economists Audrey and Thomas Duncan cited empirical literature on the human toll of economic devastation. This article forecasted more than 100,000 excess deaths due to drug overdoses, suicide, alcoholism, homicide, and untreated depression – all a result not of the virus but of policies of mandatory human separation, economic downturn, business and school closures, closed medical services, and general depression that comes with a...

    There were 54.6 million more days of poor mental health among adults in states that voted for Hillary Clinton in December 2016, compared to October 2016, according to a study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine. No such increase in poor mental health following the 2016 US election was observed in states that voted for Donald Trump. The increase in average number of poor mental health days per person in Clinton-voting states largely persisted in the six months after the election. Comparing states in which Trump had received the most votes with states in which Clinton had received...
  • Our Law Enforcement Officers Are Mentally Suffering

    Editor's note: This column was authored by Wesley Shirola. As if being a police officer in the United States weren’t psychologically demanding enough already, officers have faced increasing mental health challenges in the wake of George Floyd's death and the nationwide reckoning on race that’s followed. This newfound emotional harm has been largely ignored by many mainstream media outlets, which instead have focused on stories about the difficulties of being black in America, white privilege, and defunding the police. Admittedly, these discussions are legitimate and worthy, but refusing to acknowledge the mental health burden on our police officers is simply irresponsible...

    "In March we panicked," said Dr. Jay Bhattacharya. "Not just in America, the world panicked and threw out the old plan." Dr. Bhattacharya teaches medicine at Stanford University, where he researches the health and well-being of vulnerable populations. With 135 articles published in top peer-reviewed journals, his credentials are impeccable. "The old plan" relied on the time-tested public health measures that successfully eradicated diseases like polio and smallpox, not the total lockdowns implemented in 2020. In response, Dr. Bhattacharya and colleagues from Harvard and Oxford authored the Great Barrington Declaration, which expresses "grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental...

    The CDC wants Americans to have 'virtual' Thanksgivings, staycation holidays, and gatherings with only your household to avoid spreading COVID-19. But loneliness is a scourge, too. Make this the most joyous holiday season yet. In a nation fatigued by social distancing and dying to escape loneliness, the inimitable Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued recommendations for how to have a “safe” holiday season. Spoiler: A CDC-compliant season will not be “the most wonderful time of the year.”Our national public health experts have steered us confidently through some murky waters. After all, how else would we know that public...

    Dr. John Ioannidis is among a growing number of scientists who believe the current shelter-in-place orders in California continue to impose excessive and potentially harmful measures on most of the population, while failing to adopt strong enough restrictions to adequately protect those who are most vulnerable to the coronavirus. “We can take even more draconian measures to protect people and locations and settings that we know at very high risk,” said Ioannidis, a Harvard-trained doctor of internal medicine, infectious disease specialist and professor of medicine at Stanford University. Ioannidis believes the initial lockdown was the right approach in March, when...

    The 2016 presidential election was linked to considerable mental health declines among Muslim college students, with religious Muslims seeing the largest declines in mental health, according to a University of Michigan researcher. Sara Renee Abelson, a doctoral candidate at the U-M School of Public Health, and colleagues found that the proportion of Muslim students experiencing clinically significant mental health symptoms rose 7 percentage points over the changes experienced by all other students when comparing data from the 14 months post-election to the 14 months prior. Before the election, 22% of Muslim students screened positive for depression, anxiety or an eating...

    Blanca Briceno ... called the police one day in March to help her son, who was in the midst of a mental health crisis. But by the end, he’d been beaten and Tasered to death. At one point, she said, deputies grabbed her phone when she tried to film what was happening. [C]coroner’s officials concluded that Briceno, 39, died of cardiopulmonary arrest, resulting from neck compression and restraint with a Taser. The death was ruled a homicide, although the designation doesn’t mean it was intentional or a crime. The Briceno family last month filed a wrongful death claim, precursor to...

    LANCASTER, Pa. — Lancaster police Chief Jarrad Berkihiser said an officer who shot and killed a man armed with a knife was in imminent danger of losing his life and acted appropriately. The police shooting death of 27-year-old Ricardo Munoz on Sunday was captured on an officer's body cam. Looking at that body cam video, Berkihiser said his officer's actions were justified. "There's been some question about, you know, where was the officer's backup? And should the officer have waited for backup? And that's a good question, and we can't always wait for backup," he said. Berkihiser said the officer...
