The other day, my (lovely) dentist asked what I did for a living - I said I've been working in environmental science and recently climate stuff a bit.

She said 'Wow - that must be an exciting time for you?'... (1/7)

#climateCrisis #climateAnxiety #climateEmotions #anxiety
No, it's not an exciting time, it's terrifying - we're sleep walking into the end of civilisation as we know it, sat back on our soft sofas, drinking lattes, watching Netflix as the vast majority of the planet's population deals with all the crap we've done to get us here. (2/7)
Even as our lives get harder we can't even imagine how shit things are going to be for the less privileged 90% of the human race. I watch heroes getting arrested for desperately trying to get politicians to wake up and act urgently, whilst middle-aged white men hurl abuse.. (3/7)

It is always concerning, and disappointing, when an elected representative feels that is is acceptable to make unsubstantiated claims about people he neither knows nor has spoken to. @AlynSmith describes #LGBAlliance as "shadowy" 1/4…
& adds that we "have wilfully sought to misrepresent & undermine policy & have been vicious in (our)conduct on social media, claiming victimhood & bemoaning cancel culture." Not a word of this is true. @AlynSmith will you join us on Zoom so we can tell you what we are about? 2/4
Would it be useful for you to watch our last webinar where we lay out the reasons why we formed & our plans for the future. It's easy to watch on…. Now there are 13 LGB Alliances worldwide - it's a truly global issue. #SexNotGender 3/4

This is Cara's Story. **Names have been changed upon request and for protection**

Cara has gone through a lot as a child. Growing up she had difficulties in coping with traumatic experiences that she and her other family members both lived with and went through.
Ever since she was on AISH, Cara and others we have talked to all recognized that all the AISH workers that our daughter and others have had to work with have always reinforced to their clients the lifelong message that many clients were unworthy of support, care & medical care.
Cara and her sister grew up in a home that had a mother with serious mental health diagnoses as well as an alcoholic father who left when Cara was 9 and her sister was 6.

#COVID19 is already having a serious impact on people’s #MentalHealth

The 🌏🌎🌍 needs to urgently increase investment in services for mental health to prevent a massive increase in mental health conditions. 👉
People are more distressed 🤯 due to immediate health impacts of #COVID19, including:

☹️Physical/social isolation
☹️Fear of contagion
🙁Loss of family members

This is what countries can do to safeguard the #MentalHealth of their citizens 👉
Demand from frontline health-care workers 👨‍⚕️🏥👩‍⚕️ for psychological support is high.

Heavy workloads, life-or-death decisions, and risk of infection are sources of stress. #LetsTalk

"1of who knows how many" I started talking about the need to defeat the system the UK had set up to keep us prisoner in 2016. The additional member system ( a variation on D'Hondt) is designed to prevent a majority Government in Holyrood.
"2 of who knows how many" The plan I came up with was to create a Constituency party in West Scotland that would promote the SNP in the constituency, and seek votes only in the regional list. I have flirted with it on and off since then. Those who know me can verify.
"3 of who knows how many" We always play by Westminster rules and we always lose, and then curse our luck. Luck has fuck all to do with it. Playing them at their game, under their rules does not mean we also follow their instruction.

This tweet and the mention of #impostersyndrome has sparked some reflection on my part that I’d like to share. #LetsTalk

Topic: imposter syndrome being used by groups who typically hold power in academic/professional spaces
I’ve always seen imposter syndrome used in spaces of underrepresented minorities which makes complete sense. I’ve also seen the term used by white academics specifically on here and i just don’t know how to feel about it.
everyone to SOME extent can feel like they don’t belong. But how much of that is actually due to your identity vs the space you’re in?

(Photograph is: Mud and barbed wire through which the Canadians advanced during the Battle of Passchendaele. W. Rider-Rider, November 1917, LAC MIKAN 3194807).
Canada's earliest #FWW photographer, Harry Knobel, experienced stress during the first months of the war. He was a member of the 1st Canadian Contingent whose medical records note that he began experiencing “neurasthenia” or “trench fever” as early as November 1915.
