Getting Up To Speed with Oursociety911 (10/26/18)

Quick News, Concerning America, Current Events and Mental Health


“Basically, there are two kinds of stereotypes out there in the world about America. There’s America the Goliath – the big, powerful, bullying country that pushes its way around the world and gets its ways, pursues its own interests nakedly, irrespective of what others want. And the other stereotype is America, the land of opportunity, where everyone can go and do anything, be anything, make any dreams come true.”

–Shashi Tharoor


Here’s what else you need to know to Get Up to Speed

Big shout out to NFL players like Everson Griffen, Joe Barksdale, Steve Smith Sr. and Brian Dawkins. Tough, powerful NFL players who recently open up about their battles with depression and mental health. Our brains are just like any other part of our body. Once injured, there are steps that you can take to bring you back to a healthy state of mind and body or close to it 🙂

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 or will experience 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.
