Namibia: Mental Health - the Elephant in the Room... Imho!!
[New Era] As usual, in every chance of my inquisition or pursuit of knowledge, before trying to understand other people, I try as much as possible to understand myself first.

How Companies Teach Their Employees First Aid for Mental Health
At Delta Air Lines’ Atlanta headquarters in late January, 24 employees are arguing over which of them has the worst disease. Half of them had been given cards naming a physical or mental health diagnosis and were told to line up, from the least debilitating to the most. The woman holding “gingivitis” quickly takes a place at the far left of the line. But everyone further down to the right—low back pain, moderate depression, paraplegia, severe PTSD—keeps switching spots. “Severe vision loss,” someone says to the man holding the corresponding card, “are you a pilot?” He d...

Extra benefit from epilepsy neurostimulators -- reducing comorbid neuropsychiatric symptoms
(University of Alabama at Birmingham) Researchers report cases of five epilepsy patients who found better treatments for deleterious neuropsychiatric symptoms like anxiety, depression, psychosis and impaired memory using data collected -- while the patients were at home -- from implanted neurostimulators placed in their brains to control their epileptic seizures. This is an extra benefit from the implanted Responsive Neurostimulator Systems, due to the system's ability to record brain electrocorticography data initiated when a patient senses an anxiety or panic attack.

The polyvagal theory was developed by Stephen Porges and presented to the Society for Psychophysiological Research in 1994.

Anxiety occasionally visits us all.

A healthy amount of anxiety prevents us from falling victim to those dangers and risks. Choosing not to go down that dark alley could be a life-saving response. But an excessive amount of anxiety can increase our risk of suffering negative consequences.
