Hello there 👋🏽 I hope you’re having a lovely Thursday.

Today I thought I should pop in and just to share with you how having a stress ball helped me through academic stress and how that experience became the motivation behind us selling stress balls.
Also still keeping in mind that mental health is still a pressing issue in our community and we here at NeuroBloom Psychology practice are working on raising awareness through our mental health campaign shop. However we can’t do it without you, so we are urging you to check out
the shop. Not only will you be getting yourself an item from our store but 10% of the profit share is donate to Moreson Special School situated in Khomasdal and caters for about 150 learners with cognitive and intellectual impairments from across the country.

How do we know that our Inner Child is present?
When you are truly feeling your feelings, you are allowing your inner child to be. Your inner child is active when you are being playful, spontaneous, creative, intuitive and surrendering to the spiritual self. When you experience
joy, sadness, anger, fear or affection your child within is coming out.

When the inner child is wounded.
Almost all of us have some inner child healing to do. It is hard for us to be whole and happy adults without bringing the inner child into our lives and thereby healing it.
When we meet our inner child, we often discover that some of our ove, guidance, respect, trust and safety. The lack of these basic needs may have brought about a state of chronic anxiety, fear, shame, anger and despair in our inner child.

1/ As if the #opioid crisis and the pending #ONhealth ED collapse weren’t enough, @OntariosDoctors section on Addiction Medicine warning OAT clinics across Ontario could see service disruptions as of Dec 1, 2022 (ironically #internationalaids day)
2/ At issue is the implementation of the new virtual care codes which will slash fees for video consultations with new patients— patients in rural or remote areas without access to specialists are likely to be most impacted. #onpoli #onhealth
3/The irony is that #mentalhealth in #ontario was pioneering in establishing the virtual care capacity that got us through #covid. Many community-based #buprenorphine programs in rural and remote areas operated virtually prior to the pandemic, increasing #accessibility to OAT.

Preprint alert! TL;DR We find that a common genetic mechanism underlies Substance Use Disorder behaviors, and remains when controlling for genetics of substance use. Suggesting an #addictions genetic mechanism, what we call the a(g)-Factor, a thread! 1/8…
Polysubstance use or substitution behaviors are the norm among cases. With more lifetime SUDs comorbidity we often see more severe presentations of Substance Use Disorders (SUDs). Our current nosologies are defined by the drug, but there are efforts to find deeper mechanisms. 2/8
