Vanity overpowers the darkest, deepest depressions to make sure at least my hair is presentable. Doesn’t that sound superficial? ...

By ARPAN WAGHRAY, MD and BENJAMIN F. MILLER, PsyD Benjamin F. Miller Arpan Waghray If someone we love has a physical ailment, we can list a variety of places for them to seek care: a clinician’s office, a pharmacy, an urgent care clinic, a school health clinic, an emergency department — the list goes on. And, in every case, we would feel confident the clinicians in those places would know how to handle the case — or at least know where to send the patient if they need more intensive or specialized care.

Discussion “[Cannabis] is a genus of flowering plant with three main varieties: sativa, indica and ruderalis.” It has been used for hundreds of years for hemp or fiber and also for psychoactive and medicinal effects.

Hash oil, hashish (or resin) and marijuana (dried leaves) are the common products from strongest to least strongest products. ...

Adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) were nearly twice as likely as other adults to be hospitalized for self-injurious behavior and ideation, according to astudy published yesterday inPsychiatric Services in Advance. In addition, these patients stayed in the hospital two days longer and incurred more costs even after the longer hospitalizations were taken into account.“Adults with ASD might lack access to appropriate health care services, have difficulty communicating their symptoms to their health care providers, be more sensitive to stimuli and stressors, and lack a healthy support network,” wrote Morga...

AbstractAdult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (aADHD) has recently been better recognized and treated in many European countries. In spite of this development, aADHD still features as a “hidden” comorbidity, often not diagnosed even in patients under psychiatric treatment for other psychiatric disorders. The aim of this study was to establish the prevalence rates of unrecognized aADHD in academic centers providing regular psychiatric services in the Czech Republic and Hungary. In a population of psychiatric in-and outpatients, Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale was administered. All positively and about half...
