Happy to be joining @wolfblitzer @CNNSitRoom in 10 minutes. Tonight's announcement about the #SupremeCourtJustice has potential implications for every part of healthcare - from #covid19 to care of our children. Looking forward to our discussion.
Short version:
🔸️#covid19 is a pre- existing condition for 7 million+ Americans- they could all lose insurance
🔸️millions will lose preventive care- & will end up in my ER, too sick to be saved
🔸️the health system will be thrown into chaos in the midst of a pandemic
🔸️millions of women will lose maternity care & access to contraceptives, and will be charged more @janevandis
🔸️millions will lose access to treatment for #mentalhealth & #substanceuse - in the midst of an epidemic of both @drjessigold

(1/8) I’ll take “Shitty Behaviour You (Shouldn’t) Have to Put Up With” for $500

I’m often mistaken for an employee at @CAMHnews, instead of the patient I am. (What does a #mentalhealth patient LOOK like anyways?). I don’t hesitate to correct someone because I’m not ashamed...
(2/8) ME: [standing in the parking lot by my car in-between #rTMS treatments]

MAN: [cutting through #CAMH grounds with walking group of seniors behind me] “...and here we are at the insane asylum, ha ha ha, if we’re lucky we’ll see some of the crazies doing their crazy shit...”
(3/8) If I wasn’t so exhausted (and nauseated), I’d have schooled you. Instead, I’ll wait outside every day in between treatments while I’m here, and maybe one day I’ll be lucky and you’ll walk by. And I’ll invite you to have a conversation. And I’ll share my history with you...

A thread on #MentalHealth, #ToxicStress, and #TraumaAwareness in #HigherEd...

With recognition that our leaders are also experiencing all of these challenges, are they acknowledging these realities?
What I'm hearing from faculty is no. People are drowning. Faculty, staff, and students are numb, traumatized, scared, and barely holding on by a thread. And they do not feel seen and supported by #highered leaders. There are, of course, exceptions. Those don't make rules.
I think sometimes our leaders feel like talking about these issues is not their job. It's the counseling office's job, right? No. Not right. Conversations about scope of practice can help move this conversation forward, perhaps. Image

Today is #WorldAlzheimersDay

#Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of #dementia and may contribute to 60–70% of cases. People with dementia need access to care. Let's ensure the dignity of every person with a #MentalHealth condition is respected

#Dementia is an illness characterized by a deterioration in cognitive function beyond what might be expected from normal ageing.

It is a major cause of disability and dependency among older people 👵👴


Reduce your #dementia risk by:
🏃‍♂️ Exercising regularly
🚭 Not smoking
🍺 Avoiding harmful use of alcohol
⚖️ Controlling your weight
🍐 Eating a healthy diet
✅ Maintaining healthy blood pressure, cholesterol & blood sugar levels

"I would like to start by welcoming the Right Honourable @Jeremy_Hunt, Chair of the @UKParliament’s Health and Social Care Select Committee, and Mr @GuyRyder, Director-General of the @ilo"-@DrTedros #WorldPatientSafetyDay
"For thousands of years, medicine has operated on a simple principle: primum non nocere – first do no harm.

That principle is as true today as in the time of Hippocrates. No one should be harmed while seeking care"-@DrTedros #WorldPatientSafetyDay

Before I leave you all for the night I wanted to talk about something which I already did a thread on last week over at my account @Rhiannon_Kirton and that is #mentalhealth
This is something that I have struggled with recently (see previous thread) and I know many other grad students have also struggled with. So I want to highlight that you are not alone, many of us share this struggle with you
Grad school is HARD, it is even harder when you are first- gen, BIPOC, LGBTQ+ or from another marginalized background. Often we do not have the resources we need and this is even more true for accessing adequate help for mental health.

As much as I appreciate the awareness that The Social Dilemma is building around #mentalhealth and #technology I'd love to highlight some of the initiatives in #techethics that are working toward real change. 👇
The work of @AllTechIsHuman is bringing diverse voices and an inclusive mindset into #techethics—today they just launched a guide to responsible technology!
The IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous & Intelligent Systems, led by @johnchavens engages scholars and industry from all over the world to create a set of standards for ethical technology.

Summarizing #BasicIncome @ $196B/yr
Avg cost $5,214 non-taxable

🆘20 Million Canadians
💰 Min $18,329 floor
🛑Perm Job Losses
🚑 Masks & Preventatives
🚑Essential Workers
⛑️BI Helps #CEWS by 📢#CreatingJobs
♿️#RaiseTheRates for #PWD

RT & #SpreadTheWord Image
How many Employers result in Permenant Job Layoffs because they can't commit to hours...

A #BasicIncome is also a means to protect these workers from loosing Weeks to Months of Income before they qualify for benefits. It's FASTER than EI. It's FASTER than Welfare.
How many mothers need to work 2 or 3 jobs just to pay the rent and bills? Sacrificing #FamilyQualityTime is not helping our society increase benefits of life by not having enough time for family outings, and experiences that can benefit creativity in the workplace.

Hey @RajanJSaw, care to explain this:

Credit: Kathleen Ganley

“The UCP is planning to change the eligibility criteria for AISH. The issues manager for the Premier tweeted that Albertans with mental or psychological disabilities aren’t “really” disabled.
... I truly believed that as a society we were past the point where we have to hide mental health problems, or listen to people people say they aren’t “real” health issues. The UCP taking us back in time again.”

Bei Gründung der #PsychologistsForFuture hatten wir eine Idee:

Die Idee, dass Psychologie und Psychotherapie einen Beitrag zur Bewältigung der Klimakrise leisten könne.

Wir dachten an Abwehr, Verdrängung, etwas später auch an #MentalHealth für Aktivisti.
Inzwischen haben wir dazugelernt: Es geht nicht nur um einen Beitrag.

Die #Klimakrise zieht sich durch jeden Winkel unserer Profession - kein Bereich, der nicht von ihr betroffen wäre oder in dem unser Wissen - generell das Wissen eines jeden Menschens - nicht nützlich sein kann
Deswegen wird es niemals ausreichend sein, dass sich einige Kolleg*innen bei den Psy4F dieses Themas annehmen und andere sich zurückhalten.

Wir brauchen ohne jegliche Übertreibung jede*n Einzelne*n.

Today is #WorldSuicidePreventionDay.

#Suicide is a global public health issue.
All ages, sexes, and regions of the 🌎🌍🌏 are affected.

Lives are lost, while suicides are preventable.

Do you know someone who is feeling suicidal?
Don’t miss the opportunity to let them know you care!

Feeling suicidal often passes with the right support


For many young people, the teenage years are a time of exploring opportunities & freedoms, but they can also be a time of anxiety about academic performance, relationships & the future.

This is what 👩‍🏫👨‍🏫 can do to help prevent #suicide among teenagers.

I spent the day largely off @Twitter because, well, WORK happened.

And omg i of course miss the bombshell that proves what we knew all along: Trump just didn't care that we would be in danger from #covid19. His lack of planning was a conscious choice.…
On behalf of #healthcare workers, the elderly, those with chronic diseases: I'm livid and sad.

We could have had PPE. Testing. Adequate contact tracing. All of it.

We could have had almost 200,000 lives, and innumerable illnesses, and an economy, and our #mentalhealth.
I have no illusions about what happens next. It will continue to be the burden of healthcare workers, families, and grassroots groups to pick up the pieces of our failed national response.

It's up to *us* to create change.

This is one of my favorite weeks.

Earlier this week was the bday of @darakass, the originator of rafts of bitches.

Yesterday was the inimitable @choo_ek, who lifts & inspires us all with humor and wisdom. We all bow down, my friend.
Today is the bday of the brilliant @NicoleNugentPhD, one of my fave collaborators & people-in-general. If you care about teen #mentalhealth, stress & trauma, or being a great mentor, you need to know her.

And tomorrow? My son's bday, & the anniversary of my meeting my hubby!
A reminder that there are sweet moments to appreciate, always.

Recently, due to the lockdown, i experienced mental saturation🧠and an urge to procrastinate⏭️ even for things i was highly passionate about.

Observing individuals around me, i learnt that everybody is experiencing the same feeling.

[ A Thread ]

So for every problem, an individual comes up with his own organic solution.

Here, is my organic solution to Mental Saturation🧠 & Procrastination ⏭️.

Solution 1 - Take a day off🤹‍♂️

Everything has a saturation point Even the things you enjoy.

Leave each every thing which bothers you and start enjoying, do anything that makes you happy.

There comes a point when you get saturated even while having fun.

Start working again

An astonishing number of people believe "we" have good to excellent healthcare in the United States.

Let's talk about (and look at) lots of ways this isn't true.

And hopefully, after some of this, you'll be more motivated to support improvements to our #healthcare
Analysis of a 2015 report from the Commonwealth Fund:

"In sum, the U.S. health care system is the most expensive in the world, but Americans continue to live relatively unhealthier and shorter lives than peers in other high-income countries."…
Report Highlight:
"The U.S. spends more on health care as a share of the economy — nearly twice as much as the average OECD country — yet has the lowest life expectancy and highest suicide rates among the 11 nations."

This is what a 26-year-old looks like! 🙌

Meinen diesjährigen #Geburtstag verbringe ich erst mal im kleinen Kreis, mit meinen Eltern und meiner Schwester. Dabei trage ich ein paar neue, hoffnungsvoll bunte Sachen. Es ist auch ein Statement an mich selbst.

1/3 Ich, zwinkernd und grinsend...Ich, zwinkernd und grinsend...
In letzter Zeit war ich oft nachdenklich wegen dem, was weltweit passiert, habe viel über mich und meine Rolle in dieser schwierigen Zeit nachgedacht.

Diesmal habe ich einige Vorsätze für das neue Lebensjahr. Mehr Schlaf, mehr Ertüchtigung & Achtung für meinen Körper, mehr

Wertschätzung für meine wahren Freunde & Allies. Eine wichtige Erkenntnis war, auch für meine #MentalHealth, dass es ebenfalls zum Widerstand gehört, trotz allem glücklich zu sein.

In diesem Sinne: Auf die Zukunft. Ich kann es nicht abwarten, sie mit euch zu gestalten! 😘
