Mechanical restraint is the use of straps to tie people to hospital beds or other furniture. It's a violent practice and a serious breach of human rights.

TY @innodim for inviting me to speak! My cognitive PEM wouldn’t let me be great but I appreciate her encouragement & summary! Want to be sure my main points are clear in re to Black Maternal #Mental Health, Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders #PMADs, & disparities.#AIMART #BMHW22
I am no expert, so I'll share what I know. Black mothers are more at risk of #PMADs & are less likely to receive treatment b/c the structural social & economic inequities as a result of #antiBlack #racism & #misogynoir in this white supremacist patriarchal society.#BMHW22
“Close to 40% of Black mothers will suffer from postpartum depression [(PPD)]” OR ‘Systemic racism & sexism harm Black mothers which manifest as PPD for a reported ~40%.’ Addressing these risk factors associated w PMAD is key:
Lack of access to high-quality medical care

I was honored to speak in front of @HouseScience committee yesterday abt the importance of trusted messengers in a crisis— & what we need to do for the next phase of #Covid_19.

Here is my opening statement … 🧵 1x

#Vaccines #VaccinesSaveLives #PrimaryCare
As we inevitably face more C19 waves & variants, I worry abt the ongoing devastation from the virus *and* abt the collateral damage from the mitigations themselves. Mostly I worry abt ppls’ confusion & resulting anxiety abt not knowing who to trust in a global health crisis.2x
I’m here to share with you what I’ve learned firsthand caring for patients almost every day during COVID—real people on the receiving end of often confusing public health guidance & the unfortunate politicization of science. 3x

#Narcissism thread 🧵 15 (more) questions to ask yourself if you are questioning whether someone is a #narcissist
1. Do they devalue, diminish, demonise or harshly judge you or act as the righteous ‘authority’ figure with you regardless of their age, status or employment? 🚩
Are they #superior? For e.g. A non lawyer preaching to a lawyer about law. 2. Are they #defensive? Do they seem only interested in trying to prove that they are right & you are wrong, in a defensive mode? 🚩They are #competitive not co-operative. Co-operation is a must #healthy
3. Do they demand #attention from you? For e.g., insisting on having the conversation when it’s convenient for them only &/or use emotional #manipulation to ensure conversation happens on ‘their’ terms? They may not answer the question, go off topic, deflect, defensive, accuse 🚩

#Digital technologies, which have become one of the important parts of our lives, have numerous benefits in many areas such as #education, #health, #economy, etc. But, and there is a big but?
What are the costs of #digitalization for #children and #young people? How should families treat children on the internet or social media using? What do the figures tell us? Here is the threat on Children & Young People’s Mental Health in the Digital Age by the OECD in 2018. Image
Almost half of the world is connected to the #internet, and in countries that are members of the OECD almost everyone is #online. For children and young people today, being online and using social media have become an integral part of their lives.

The number of children infected with #Covid-19 is less among all other age group in the global population. How about the #psychological, #social impact in on #children? Researches suggests social and psychological impact in this group were mostly severe.
To find some answer and have idea let's take a closer look at the researches and figures provided by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), which shows the magnitude of the pandemic’s #impact on #children. Image
As families lose their sources of #income and home environments are turned upside down due to the socioeconomic impacts of Covid-19, #children find themselves more vulnerable to #poverty and likely to be deprived of their basic needs. Image

The findings show an absence of a systematic and coordinated plot to take over these schools and an absence of any concerted and deliberate plot to promote radicalisation and violent extremism of Muslim children in these schools or elsewhere

#TrojanHorse

tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.108…
language used to talk about the issues of “radicalisation” & “extremism” is itself the subject of considerable debate (Kundnani 2012; Lynch 2013). There is also a difficulty in understanding fully these issues cos there is a lack of an objective or universally accepted definition
As soon as the media took hold of the allegations, there was huge publicity about the promotion of extremism, radicalisation & terrorism.
At the time, the press also expressed many irrational anxieties about these Muslim majority schools (Arthur 2015). Even though, from the

‘The Trojan Horse Scandal and the Problem of Equalities in Britain Today’.

The event examined the scandal from a broad range of perspectives, engaging with debates on #equalities, #liberalism, and #Britishness.

It also provided an opportunity to discuss and generate a dialogue about the significance of the 'Trojan Horse’ scandal and the duty placed on schools after the scandal to promote Fundamental British Values (FBV) in the promotion of #democracy.
Speakers analysed how both are reproducing narratives of racial discrimination & inequalities in a context that is informed by minoritising communities, #problematising specific religious #values, & essentialising the signification of social, religious, & cultural identities.

REFLECTIONS ON FORGIVENESS // FORGIVENESS OF SELF // NO CONDEMNATION IN CHRIST JESUS // ROMANS 8:1

Happy Saturday, beloved family! I hope your weekend has been off to an excellent start! 🌅☀️❤️
Our focus text for today, comes to us from Romans chapter 8, which focuses on life in the Spirit.

In verse 1, we have THE blessed assurance from God, that there is indeed NO CONDEMNATION FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.
To be “in Christ Jesus” means that He dwells within us, & us within Him. We are ONE.
So, by sending His own son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins, God made sure that there is NO CONDEMNATION for us.

I SO respect & appreciate @ZJAyres sharing this today. There is ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY nothing wrong with taking medication to improve your #mentalhealth . I used to be vehemently opposed to taking psychotropic medication…
because of stigma & my Christian upbringing. NOW, based on my own lived experiences & through seeking out EXTENSIVE knowledge in the #mentalhealth space, I have a VERY different view of #mentalhealth & medications than most followers of Christ do.
Here’s the thing. Often times, people NEED medication to bring back the levels of their brain chemicals to where it needs to be. And that’s totally OK. Everyone’s condition is a little bit different.

I have been bothered. I am sure you will be a bit bothered as well. Over the past few years, many people have died. However the trend has been that so many of the deaths are blood pressure related!

What is more sad is the fact that the #male gender is the one mostly affected.

In my interaction with friends and all, I have also seen that high #blood pressure seem to be rampart among the male gender too and with less care sometimes has sent many #men to early graves

1 year ago today, I attended a small dinner where I got COVID & was hospitalized weeks later. Today my mom's coworker told her he's going to see a friend in Florida. She asked him what about ppl who could get COVID from him? Said he doesn't care; the trip is only $150!
First, he told her he doesn't think he can get COVID because he already had it. Plus friend he is visiting already had it so he said they're immune. My mom said that's not necessarily true AND he could be a carrier--said he doesn't care. Wants to take advantage of cheap tickets.
So many ppl I know think like this. My relatives who are doctors & nurses are begging ppl to stop leaving house for social, non-essential reasons. But they don't GAF. I kind of knew society didn't care about high-risk ppl like me. But to see ppl ignore doctors when 3K die daily!

Good Morning!

Continuing our #Dialogue on #Gems and #GemTherapy, today we shall dwell on the next two #GemStones.

#YellowSapphire and #Diamond. (1/13)

#Upayas
2-Yellow Sapphire is D highest quality Gemstone used 4 #Jupiter.

Substitute Gemstones for Yellow Sapphire are Yellow Tourmaline, #Citrine, Yellow #Zircon and #Topaz.

In my view, I have seen that Yellow Sapphire is one of the most widely prescribed Gemstone. (2/13)

#Remedies
3-Being related to #Jupiter it is bound to activate within you – the #Energy of the #Universal #Guru.

Out of the four #Vedic #Purusharthas, of #Dharma, #Artha, #Kama and #Moksha, Yellow Sapphire well and truly stands for #Dharma.

2. The conflation of medical and non-medical users
3. The resulting war on #pain patients and physicians.
4. This leaves people with addiction and #drug dealers untouched. /2
