I am 20 years old and I have recently been diagnosed with severe depression.

Brain-zapping implants that change mood and lift depression

I Am Unsure What Kind of Relationship I Should Have with My Parents

I grew up in a upper middle class family. I was given most things I wanted and all the essential things a child would need. I have a brother who is 25, he has borderline personality disorder. He acted out as a child/teenager, was constantly arguing with my parents and soaked up much of my parents attention. I was given attention in a different way, but rejected any emotionally connection because I saw emotions as negative because my brother/parents were arguing because of my brothers intense emo...

I Feel Unable to Go back to Therapy

From a teen in the U.S.: I have been dealing with a lot of different internal issues lately. I can’t go back to my therapist because I am bad at explaining how I feel, and I don’t have the energy to do so. I went to 3 different therapists and left them all because I felt too anxious talking to them. I don’t know what kind of help I need, and I don’t really know what is wrong with me because it feels like many different problems. I have been diagnosed with sensory processing disorder, a form of d...

Stop Your Mind from Broadcasting Fake News

We who experience anxiety, depression and self-hatred know fake news better than anyone. At a recent rally in Washington DC, Catholic students from Kentucky’s Covington High School encountered Native American elder Nathan Phillips. Things occurred. Words were said.

Divergent factions accused each other of bigotry, harassment, violently punishable crimes — and the ultimate modern-day offense: spreading fake news. As now occurs so ...

Self-Esteem Issue

My family has ethnic minority ancestry. Since I was a child, I have many family members who talk against their own ethnicity. They constantly say horrible things like people of this ethnicity are “ugly & lazy & evil” They say that they are ashamed to be of this ethnicity, and they don’t associate with others of the same ethnicity. Family members did not approve of me joining a social group for people of this ethnicity, or even taking an ethnic history class. All of this has greatly lowered my se...

Volunteer – It’s Good for You

The nightly news on TV, posts on Facebook, and articles in our local newspapers give us plenty to feel down about every day. More people are struggling financially and emotionally. The threat of violence has become a constant shadow. Addictions are up. Help for the addicted is down. The general social safety net seems to be getting more tattered by the day. It’s understandable to feel helpless in the face of it all. Compassion fatigue, disconnecting emotionally from so much suffering, can set...

Economics helps explain why suicide is more common among Protestants

Protestantism is good for some people and bad for others. At least that is the conclusion if we are to judge by the stark matters of life, or death, and prosperity. For the majority of the population, Protestantism tends to raise economic prosperity through better education. But for people who are in a suicidal state of mind, the individualistic qualities of Protestantism can tip the balance towards ending their lives. In fact, the two aspects might be related in a 'dark-contrasts paradox': unha...
