Does ’13 Reasons Why’ Increase Suicide Rates?

Conflicting research released last month gave us a very unclear answer about whether simply watching or being exposed to a television show about teen suicide — Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why (13RW) — results in an increase in actual teen suicide in real life. One study found a correlation (not a causal relationship) between the two, while another study found declines in suicidal thoughts and self-harm behaviors. So what’s the real story? 13 Reasons Why is a Netflix television series that explores t...

Mental Health within Athletics: The Invisible Competition

Imagine a common scenario, two athletes on the bench. One struggling with depression, and one recovering from surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon. Which seems more severe?

What you do serves as a template for your kids’ behavior, and they often emulate it. This goes for anything from how to cope with emotions, de...

OCD Treatment: More Important Than School or Outside Activities?

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an often misunderstood and complicated illness. It can latch on to anything that is important to us, and has the potential to totally devastate lives. Still, so many people believe it is nothing more than excessive hand washing and the desire to keep things tidy. This could not be further from the truth.
