Therapist Tip for your #mentalhealth: How to spot a #narcissist We are in a #narcisstic #psychopathic and #sociopathic epidemic. Look for these 🚩🚩1. Mirroring your interests 🚩 2. Love Bombing you at first. Feels like bliss 🚩3. Early obsession. Go too fast in any relationship
Fall in love with you in first week(s). 🚩4. Feels too good to be true 🚩5. They are idealising you & you can do no wrong. You are perfect for them. This is the 'honeymoon' period 🚩6. Them comes drama out of the blue 🚩 7. They come from a position of "how am I?" #psychology
Wanting others attention 🚩They do not care about how you are or how your day was. Do they ever ask you how you are, how was your day, say "that sounds like a tough day for you", show genuine empathy) Watch for 'false' empathy. Does the conversation always go back to them? #narcs

#Thread Being a Trolled Indian Woman on Twitter
1. So you are a thinking being, you also have a strong voice and you like to speak your mind. All good till you aren't a woman who speaks against the grain here. It will begin subtly, and your followers will suddenly grow.+
2. This is their way of monitoring everything you write, see who are your friends, the topics you write about most, the people you engage with, or those who engage with you. This is the surveillance stage. They are creating a profile for their locust swarm.+
3. They will start with random engagement that is confrontational- "you are wrong", " why are you so radical?" "you so biased?" "check your facts" Mind you these are all mindless, faceless people with a few hundred or sometimes even a few dozen followers, no DP or a generic one.+

Therapist Tip 👉🏻The Power of 'NO': the word "no" is a 'boundary'. It is a word that establishes or defines the space between you & someone else. It demands respect & is supposed to be learnt learnt through childhood development. It is a universal cue that people use #boundaries
to let others know that you are not OK about something. Boundaries are designed to keep you safe &/or establish ground rules for the relationship. One of the earliest indicators of #RedFlags in toxic people/relationships is a lack of Respect/empathy for the word "no" #SafetyFirst
This lack of respect is an 'indicator' that someone has a character/personality problem &/or flaw. If a person in your life refuses to listen or respect your "no", you may need help because you now have a 'relational' problem

@GWRHelp please update internal train digital signage with stops and make matching announcements *before* the doors lock instead of after, as you always do, when it's too late to get off.
Coach 5 of 10 is not useful information at this point. Thx
Also, watching minutes of welcomes and security warnings scroll by when I just want to know if I'm on the right train is stressful.
If you want some extra motivation to improve this, perhaps consider what effect this has on people with anxiety. #MentalHealth

The Psychology Of Gaslighting - Gaslighters are master manipulators. People who gaslight play dangerous mind games to gain control over others
Gaslighting is mostly known to be carried out by one person onto another person, commonly in romantic relationships. However, gaslighting can also occur in other areas such as friendships, between family members, at the workplace, or in politics.
People on the receiving end of gaslighting often find it difficult to realize they are experiencing abuse. They may not question the abusive person’s behavior because they feel reliant on them. If any of these scenarios seem familiar, you may be in a gaslighting relationship

Prof Jo Neill (@b_neuro) is about to give evidence to the @CommonsHomeAffs Select Committee, on the health, economic, and research cases for rescheduling #psilocybin for #mentalhealth treatment.

Watch the session here 👇…
@b_neuro @CommonsHomeAffs On whether the UK's current drug regulations are fit for purpose, Prof Neill says "clearly not", as they're not based on evidence, and inhibits research & innovation by throwing up barriers to research.
@b_neuro @CommonsHomeAffs Schedule 1 is reserved for drugs with "no medicinal value and causes a great deal of harm", but the evidence is clear psilocybin *has* medicinal value, and does not cause significant harm, especially when used in clinical settings.

1/10 The market is in turmoil, $LUNA went to zero and $UST has de-pegged, we hope everyone is okay.

Financial health is important, but so is your mental health.

Here's a checklist of things you should do to keep yourself calm. 🧵👇🏻

#mentalhealth #wellness #selfcare
2/10 Money comes and goes, but you can always earn it back.

What's important is our survival. We just need to survive so that we can fight another day!

Let's take it one step at a time.
3/10 Firstly, you want to assess your financial situation.

Do you have 6 months of cash to survive? This includes rent and debt payments.

If you don't, you should try to achieve this asap for peace of mind, even if it means selling at a loss until you have enough cash. #NFA

Final session for Day Two #RANZCP2022 will be a keynote on psychedelic drugs and their putative therapeutic role in psychiatry
What functions does the 5HT-2A receptor (target of psychedelics) engage? It's somewhat synonymous with plasticity. Mostly in the cortex (^ BDNF, tho curiously this is decreased in the hippocampus) #RANZCP2022
Highest expression of 5HT-2A in most recently expanded cortical area --> aversive learning, likely dose-dependent. ^ cognitive and psychological flexibility --> sit with difficult feeling states vs avoidant defensive strategies #RANZCP2022

Last month, I conducted a survey on the well-being of professionals exposed to online extremist and terrorist content.
I will share more detailed results with you next week, but the Buffalo attack compels me to share some of my findings and advice already. 🧵 1/
The first and most important tip is to ask yourself if you truly need to watch the video. (You most likely don't ...) (According to my survey, 10+ hours of weekly exposure significantly increases the likelihood of sleep disturbances, nightmares, cynicism, overprotection, etc.) 2/
I am in the final stages of planning a conference on Gamification, Hate Speech, and Extremism (…
), and I read that the attacker admires the Christchurch shooter, posted a manifesto, and live-streamed the attack. 3/

#MentalHealth of #MedicalStudents
The least we can expect is that medical fraternity does not make a mockery of the individual struggles that a person might be having.
You never know what a person is going through!
The kind of stories I have personally known have been shocking.
Have had medical students tell me that their friends/seniors from other specialities told them to not start Psychiatric medicines & then those same guys prescribe sleeping pills without even informing the patient
The mental health related stigma is much more amongst medicos than general public.
But what gives me hope is that many newer generation doctors are not afraid of seeking help.
The more we do that, the lesser will be the stigma.
It's okay to be labeled weak by your seniors.

#mentalhealth check-in. How y'all doing? Vent here. I care. 🖤
I hope this thread if anything, shows that so many others besides you don't "have it all together"
Once we lose hope, what else do we have? Keep up the good fight. Its ok to not be ok. 🖤
In a world where "Thoughts and Prayers" seem meaningless... I am here to say when they come from a place of sincerity, they are truly appreciated and I accept them all.

Hot off the presses: new data from @CDCgov on firearm injury & #gunviolence.

3 big takeaways:
1. Firearm injury (like #mentalhealth) is not a NEW epidemic
2. It affects all of us -but some are more at risk than others
3. It is not inevitable.
Thread 🧵…
Let's start with the data.

This analysis provides more evidence that firearm homicide increased dramatically in 2020 - close to all-time highs.

Though MOST #gun deaths in this country are suicides - rate of gun suicide (thankfully) was stable in 2020.…
This analysis also shows - once again - that all of us are at risk...

Rates increased for everyone.

And: gun deaths now outnumber car deaths among American kids.…

While the development sector might appear to be the most update-to-date on matters of #Mentalhealth , it is not! And this is true for organisations that work in the development space at the intersection of media, communications, consultancy etc. The 'work about work' is ignored.
Most young dev sector professionals I speak to are experiencing one or more mental health issues, and not all have access or means to approach professionals. For some reason, don't know why, we are forgetting that the way we lived+function has drastically changed since #COVID19.
It is somehow unacceptable when an employee is missing in action, even for a few minutes, between 9-5. But working additional hours before 9 and after 5 is completely fine. How? Weekdays, comp offs, public holidays--what is that?

Today, I was looking for an old file from a past work life. I stumbled upon a #LOR that I wrote for my freshman college roommate in 2013.

A few years afterwards, he called me with a great desperation in his voice. I asked that he give me a least an hour to travel there.
He agreed. Upon arrival, I entered a screened porch and saw an old college professor talking to him. On the table was a sawed-off double barreled #shotgun, #beer, & #cigarettes.

He was sweating profusely & murmuring that he had nothing to live for anymore.
His 7 yr. old son was in a back room. We talked for several hours. He finally agreed to travel with me to seek help. After several more hours in the hospital & watching his son, the physician comes and says to me, “We can’t hold him.”

It was a gut-punch! I knew he was not well.

It is #NationalNursingWeek - the @bcndp will take this opportunity to say they support #nurses.

But the reality in BC is that nurses are being denied PPE.

And staffing shortages are resulting in unacceptable nurse-to-patient ratios - actively endangering patients. /1 #bcpoli
In 2021, the @BCNursesUnion found:

35% of the #nurses they interviewed were more likely to quit in two years as a result of the pandemic.

82% of BCNU members noted a decline in #MentalHealth during the pandemic and 65% noted a decline in physical health. /2 #bcpoli #Health
.@BCNursesUnion President Aman Grewal has stated that nurses “are not allowed to share this reality openly.”

Today I asked the Minister @AdrianDix about this culture of fear preventing #nurses from speaking out and what he is doing to improve the situation. /3 #bcpoli #health
