Mental illness treatment needs massive investment. The case is overwhelming | Richard Layard | Opinion | The Guardian
As is well known, many NHS commissioners, when short of money, cut mental healthcare. Last week Sue Bailey, the retiring president of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, called the situation a "car crash", alluding to the fact that cuts in psychological therapy cause far more problems than they solve.

"Auf ärztliches Anraten" - Roxette sagen geplante Welt-Tournee ab
Bei der 57-Jährigen war 2002 ein Hirntumor diagnostiziert worden, sie galt aber als geheilt. Ob die Absage mit Nachwirkungen der damaligen Erkrankung zusammenhänge, konnte eine Sprecherin auf Anfrage nicht sagen. //&! - she underwent successful surgery to remove the tumor. It was malignant and she endured months of chemotherapy and radiation treatments. She had difficulties reading, writing and counting for a period of time, and is now blind in her right eye. [...] On 18 April 2016 Roxette announced that their 30th anniversary summer tour was cancelled as advised by Fredriksson's doctors. [...] [from FB page] " However, singer Marie Fredriksson has been advised by her doctors to refrain from touring and as a consequence all the summer shows are cancelled.

Can call centre therapy solve the NHS mental health crisis? | Society | The Guardian
Fast-track treatment aims to ease growing problem in the UK, but critics say it is the clinical equivalent to online dating [...] [ mental health - a mental health crisis ] This is no fringe issue in the health of the nation. The NHS believes people with mental health problems die 15 to 20 years earlier than the average, but the system is struggling to cope. Lord Layard, a government adviser on mental health, identified mental health problems as “the biggest causes of misery in Britain today”, with an estimated 6 million people affected. [ needs massive investment, no call centres ] [...] Meanwhile 40% of mental health trusts saw spending cuts over the past two years and fewer than one in eight people who suffered a mental health crisis said they received appropriate care in 2015, according to the Care Quality Commission. The regulator concluded this was “unsafe and inherently unfair”. [ referring complex cases to call centre is neglect and malpractice ]

Gentechnik: Babys wunderbar genormt - Berg-Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Alles, was anders aussieht, was defekt und nicht dem Durchschnitt zu entsprechen scheint, wird abgelehnt. Wir sehen keine Menschen mit Behinderungen im öffentlichen Leben, zu dünne oder dicke Menschen werden offensiv in den wunderbaren sozialen Medien verachtet und gehasst. Deine Nase ist zu groß, dein Kiefer zu sperrig: Mach was, Mensch! Mach dich zum Teil der grauen Masse, der Jogger, der Kieferknochenmahler. Was also spricht gegen wunderbar perfekte Babys, wunderbar genormte Menschen?

How schizophrenia changed the whole course of my life - BBC News
[ Cinderella Service ] The medications helped almost straight away but what I really wanted to do was talk to somebody in therapy sessions. At the time there was a lack of funding for this type of treatment, something which continues to be a problem for people with mental illnesses today. With the medication, I began to make little steps towards recovery. I started talking a bit, and being able to wash and take basic care of myself. Anybody who says that a mental illness isn't disabling is wrong, it affected my whole body. Unfortunately, the medication took a toll on my physical health and by the end of the following year I had gained around ten stone (63.5kg) in weight due to the side effects. [...] It has taken me 20 years to get this far in recovery, and I do still have setbacks. [...] If we can challenge the stigma, get proper investment in mental health services, [...] then people will not be left as long as I was before they are able to make their own steps toward recovery.

Your mental health stories: 'I felt palmed off' - BBC Newsbeat
[ underfunded Cinderella Service ] However, a charity has found mental health services in England are turning away one in five children who are referred to them for treatment. The NSPCC says a lot of the time they did not meet the required "high clinical threshold". This wasn't a surprise to many of you. Nor our journalists who worked on our podcast series, The Story of Izzy Dix. Here is why. [...] They felt depressed and alone, they wanted counselling but instead were prescribed medication. Their stories not only give you an idea of the mental health problems many young people are dealing with on a daily basis, but also the scale of the problem facing the NHS. //&! - Figures from 35 mental health trusts across England show that a total of 186,453 cases were referred by GPs and other professionals for help, but 39,652 children did not receive it. The most common reason was that the child did not meet the clinical threshold for receiving help from CAMHS.

min15 diet slows or speeds up ageing. Intermittent fasting ie once a month +3 days. cheat would be juice fast or broth. but here is the kicker, whole food plant based diet (vegan) does mimic parts of fasting, evidence in seen in certain factors that get activated when you really do fast. slowing down the burn rate of the many reactors (cells) we have. slowing down the cell division & thus keeping telomere's intact for longer. see also epigenetics. stress does age u. stress in many forms. same with methionine restriction - - The low-methionine content of vegan diets may make methionine restriction feasible as a life extension strategy. || min 23:00 chemotherapy does accelerate ageing and shows side effects a decade down the rate. ie higher rate of bone cancer occurrence. // min 41 stem cell therapy, currently used in focused approach vs future of preventative supplementation. ie using own blood plasma injected in face 2 increase collagen production

NHS staff told to stop helping patients get gay conversion therapy - BBC Newsbeat
A survey carried out in 2009 found 16% of therapists in the UK had attempted gay conversion therapy. The treatment isn't offered on the NHS, but it's understood some staff have occasionally put patients in touch with organisations who provide it. Experts say attempting so-called "gay cures" can be "dangerous" and "damaging". Fourteen organisations, including NHS England, have signed an agreement to stop gay conversion therapy being offered to patients. Although in general, referrals to conversion services are rare - there is evidence that GPs, counsellors and psychotherapists have made them.

"The Homosexuals": Mike Wallace's CONTROVERSIAL 1967 CBS Report!!(FULL VIDEO) - YouTube >> "Some parents sensed that it could not have been a choice. When Tommy Lasorda's son came out, Tommy Lasorda publicly stated, "Gays have to have been born that way, because no one WOULD ever choose it!" So there was a certain "sixth sense" among really involved and concerned family members." &! "A very provocative documentary -- in a good way. I like to think that this documentary gives a real glimpse into the horror of being homosexual in the 60s. As usual with issues around civil and human rights, so many organized groups are so committed to scapegoating another group, in this case gay men, who already were taught to be so shameful. As a practicing psychiatrist, it's very humbling to see my profession so horribly misguided, so full of itself, and so non-reflective." &!
