When I see this tweet, I get a sick feeling I’m the pit of my stomach. The way I read this, is, “Kids are killing themselves in #AISD,” and if Meagan, the counseling coordinator for secondary education is sending up #flares like this in #ATX it must be bad, because she’s polished
Does anyone realize that #Suicides in the schools are not reported in the news? They are very #confidential Why? They are #minors AND school officials are trying to prevent #copycat #suicides.
Yep, when kids hear about #Suicide they think about doing it too. Kids in the #ATX are in trouble. This isn’t Meagan talking. This is me. I know what #mentalhealth crisis means.

Q2 From MJ (@manijadegarcia): It seems uncommon to associate mental health struggles w/ disability. I do see discussions of this during #DEHEM21, which I feel hopeful about.

Academic culture is ULTRA VIOLENT & TOXIC towards people with mental health struggles.


(@manijadegarcia) I am in a #ClinicalPsychology PhD program & have found that clinical psychologists are among the MOST violent & most likely to stigmatize #MentalIllness, mostly due to shame from avoiding confronting their own struggles & training in Western medical models.

(@manijadegarcia) Applicants/trainees in clinical psychology are—as a rule— told NOT to discuss their mental health & are punished for disclosing.

This culture mixes in ugly ways with other core -isms in clinical psychology, like racism.

This was 2 months after high school graduation. My classmate was missing for 7 months. The devastation & grief were immense after the unexpected loss. We were naïve teenagers facing overwhelming sadness. Eventually her death was ruled a #suicide. #ph260720
In 2016, while living with my best friend, I briefly had a #suicidal roommate. The aftermath of my classmate’s death inspired me to study suicide, but I was not prepared to be the caretaker to a loved one in her time of crisis. #ph260720
About me: I choose #suicidology because I have seen the effects of suicide on families & communities. I am a sociological suicidologist turned #publichealth researcher. Learning from #livedexperiences and using #qualitativemethods in #suicideresearch is important to me. #ph260720

For #WorldMentalHealthDay I would like to draw attention to the crisis of incarceration of those with serious mental illnesses. More than 1/4 of men and well over half of women in #prison are diagnosed with some form of mental illness. This represents a huge societal failure. /1
Decades ago, people with #mentalillness whose families couldn't afford adequate treatment were warehoused in institutions in terrible conditions. Litigation forced them to close. They were supposed to be replaced with community based resources so people could get help at home. /2
As is typical in the US, these vital resources never materialized and many thousands of people with serious mental health needs were left with nowhere to turn. Over time, their #mentalillness was criminalized, and prisons became their new warehouses.… /3

Today is #WorldSuicidePreventionDay 

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

There is a lot we can do to prevent suicide
Do you know someone who may be considering #suicide?
Reach out. Offer help.
Let them know you care.


1 in 100 deaths is by #suicide.

Every year, more people die as a result of suicide than HIV, malaria or breast cancer - or war and homicide.

The #American Empire will continue to falter for a few more days. Their effect will continue to decrease day by day. At some point, the countries of the #world will decide to stop using the #dollar as a reserve currency.
And just then, the #United_States will face a severe,
stagnant economic downturn that will force it to immediately reduce the size of its military. In a maximum of one to two decades, the America we know will no longer exist.The U.S. Department of Defense said in a report that the U.S. military is "no longer as invincible,
non-invasive as before" against various state adversaries, and that "the U.S. military is no longer able to maintain a consolidated and sustainable regional military superiority outside its strongholds." Historian Alfred W.McCoy's idea is that

TBH, one of the scariest & hardest parts of my training was getting used to asking people about #suicide. I got a crash course in it by working in a CPEP for a year where you literally have to ask every patient. It was stressful & awkward but now in private practice, it’s cake.
in a psychiatric emergency room & a private office, there is kind of an art to it where you build up the directness of questions over time. You start w “ever thought about death or dying..” “do you want to be dead” “plan?” “How serous are you?” “Reasons for living?” That’s cpep.
The questions stop a lot earlier in a private practice typically. I was surprised at how little reason someone has to give for living to be discharged as safe to go home. But this game ain’t for the faint of heart. People should be free if they can be. /

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.

Blessed Friyay morning to you all, beloved children of God! 🌅☀️❤️
Our focus today will be within 1st John , chapter 3. This chapter deals EXCLUSIVELY with our identities as children of God. We are encouraged to strive to be a people of ethical integrity & to live a life that is reflective of our spiritual identity.
In verse 20, we are reminded of the truth that God is actually GREATER THAN OUR HEART. People of God, this is a quite profound assertion! 🤯🤯🤯

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'm both ecstatic and heartbroken at the same time

So proud of my lab @StanfordMMHIP for publishing our first study on suicide and US Muslims in top tier @JAMANetwork

Yet heartbroken over our findings that suicide attempts in US Muslims are TWICE other faith/non-faith groups Image
Our study was the result of an excellent collab between @StanfordMMHIP Lab @TheISPU and the Institute of Muslim Mental Health

There are very few studies on #Muslims and #suicide. Ours is the FIRST in top tier @JAMAPsych and of the first in the field…
Let me say this loud and clear for the naysayers out there who don't believe that #suicide is a major concern in #Muslim communities:

Stop denying the reality our communities are facing and start being part of the solution instead of part of the problem…

I am perplexed how #RogerChou can not only sit on the #CDCOWG but is a lead author. He recused himself at the #CDC meeting due to #COIs bc of his work as ‘expert witness’ in Purdue litigation but is lead author 🤷🏻‍♀️ @CDCDirector @CDCInjury could you explain how this is ethical? 1/
Listening to the #CDCOWG from perspective of #caregiver & advocate was disheartening. For me @CDCDirector assurances that #patients voices were heard was meaningless. She may say that we’ve been heard but then how are so many feeling as we haven’t been? Why are the #legislation 2
of these guidelines continuing? Why are those who have benefitted from #opioid #pain medications being removed, shamed & stigmatized? Why is care not individualized? It’s very clear our #voices have not been heard. There is nothing that was said that eased my concern for 3/

I feel you on this 💯. The reality is that there actually IS a lot that others can do to help alleviate mental health issues. For one, the societal stigma which surrounds mental health IS NOT the same for cancer. At all. What I’ve found is that a lot of the hopelessness that…
precedes suicide is heavily related to the ways in which society perceives the individual suffering from MH issues. The individual feels like a lost cause, because often times, society TELLS them that they are. They’re told they can’t work again because they’re unstable.
How do they then pay their mortgages, student loans? How do they LIVE????!! CAN’T have kids, because they’ll have kids with neurological disorders which will then be burden to society & the healthcare system. CAN’T adopt kids, because in America, people with MH issues just CAN’T!
