MENTAL HEALTH CHAT-(U.S. suicide rates surges to a 30-year high)
Special shout out to the Beer deliveryman who prevents suicide on a bridge by offering a cold one and channeling Denzel Washington (Podcast)!!!
Many research shows that mental health condition isn’t the result of one event. It suggests multiple linking causes. Lifestyle, genetics and your environment can influence whether someone develops a mental condition. A stressful home life, stressful job or stressful school environment makes some people more susceptible, as do traumatic life events like being the victim of a crime. Basic brain structure, biochemical processes and circuits may play a role too.
Remember that you important and loved by many. Why? Because you are a living soul and you matter to us. So, if you are having suicidal thoughts, PLEASE CALL 800-273-8255.
|Senate Judiciary Committee votes in favor of Kavanaugh’s confirmation|
|The Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday voted 11-10 along party lines to recommend Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. On Thursday, the committee heard testimony from Christine Blasey Ford, who alleges Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the 1980s, and from Kavanaugh himself, who strongly denies the claim. The vote was delayed roughly 20 minutes for last-minute dealmaking. Swing vote Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who is not seeking re-election, called for a maximum one-week delay on the full floor vote until the FBI can conduct an investigation of the allegations against Kavanaugh.
