Do exercise improves mental health?
Everyone knows that exercise is good for the body. But is it effective in dealing with depression, anxiety, stress, and more? It is very common that those People who exercise regularly tend to do so. #MentalHealthAwareness

But that’s not what motivates most people to stay active.
Acc to the research, Regular exercise can have a profoundly positive impact on depression, anxiety and more. It also relieves stress, improves memory,helps you sleep better, and boosts your overall mood & you don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to reap the benefits.

Barangkali beberapa dari kita mencintai dengan alasan. Beberapa yang lain dengan syarat dan ekspektasi.
Mencintai terkadang menjadi hal yang rumit, karena kita menyertakan alasan, syarat, dan ekspektasi di dalamnya. Secara sadar ataupun tidak sadar, terkadang kita menginginkan sesuatu sebagai balasan atas cinta kita.

Read sad story last night about Dr. Bucci, 50 year old Phychology & Brain Sciences Dept. Chairman, at Dartmouth that committed #Suicide 11 months after a lawsuit was filed by graduate #students in his department. He
2/ was NOT accused of sexual misconduct, but named in the suit for knowing about the professors’ inappropriate behavior as the Chair.I share many of the same feelings he expressed to friends and colleagues in his emails before he took his own life like: the case was deeply
3/ personal; reputation had been damaged; physical health diminished; false portrayal of his actions; being blamed unfairly; allegations & process “unfair”; how can they ever undo what they did to me & #wronglyaccused. Similarly, how I had reported the #disability

1/ It’s been 17 years today since I lost my younger brother to #suicide. Since then, so much has changed.
2/ The stigma surrounding #mentalhealth has diminished a little and organisations like @TimetoChange and @heads_together bring a powerful lobby and royal patronage to the topic.
3/ @andysmanclubuk alongside many others has brought safe places for men to talk about their health and mental health across the country. 100s do every week.

It’s #TimeToTalk about people who are employed to use their experience of mental distress in MH charities ie. @MindCharity @TimetoChange. #LivedExperiencePractitioners #Peers experience discrimination, derogatory pay & active blocks to career progression #TimeToListen #TimeToAct
#TimeToTalk Many people don’t realise is that large generically run charities such as @MindCharity are given majority of funding, whilst orgs run by people who live with mental health conditions & grassroots groups are not funded. We are becoming extinct.…
The National Service User Network @NSUN is run by ppl with lived experience of Mental Health condition, but even that has lost its funding - the one org trying to support and keep our SU-led orgs together! #TimeToTalk Why can money go to @TimetoChange but not SU-led national org?

1/So there was lots of talk at @AACNursing #AACNdoc20 re: #Nursing #PhD pipeline, getting folx esp prelicensure students ‘excited’ about #nursingscience & the #BStoPhD

I totally revamped our #nursingresearch & #innovation course @UMassAmherst last fall to do just that

Thread ⬇️
2/ I told the Asst Dean when I took it on that regardless of the learning objectives for the course I had only 1 GOAL:

That by the end of the semester, these students would be EXCITED!-or at very least, just a little bit CURIOUS-about a career in #nursingscience & #innovation
3/ A note about context: This was a course of ~85 Accel BS students, taught in an urban campus that is geographically ~40mins drive from main @UMassAmherst campus, in the . The classroom assigned had no windows. Class ran 8am-1030am Weds, before more courses. I say this b/c....

A marriage invitation arrived on whatsapp today.
Nothing new about it.
Except the story behind it.

1997-99 i was treating psychiatry resident for a young man who had recently been confirmed on job as armed railway police.

He developed Schizophrenia (paranoid type) .
Fortunately, it was detected early and he was referred to govt hospital psychiatry dept (my place of work) by railway doctors.

He had a severe type of difficulty and it took almost 2 months of treatment (including electroconvulsive therapy) to achieve full resolution of symptoms
He was sent on a long medical leave with regular follow up.
Along with his wife, a baby daughter and his uneducated father, he would visit OPD every week.
His father would talk to all other patients waiting there, motivating them to take regular meds.

I tell you what: it's thinking like this that perpetuates the #mentalhealth stigma. It proves, yet again, that our primary obstacle is ignorance. I'm not using that as a pejorative; many people simply do not know much about the topic.
I'm not offended by his comment. I'm intrigued by it and would welcome an opportunity to engage. People without #mentalhealth issues -- or who do not have friends or family who deal with it -- generally can't be expected to understand them.
This isn't their fault. There are many struggles others go through that I can't relate to on anything more than an empathetic level. That is, I can only understand their struggle as best as possible, then put myself in their shoes. It's an imperfect way to relate. #mentalhealth

“The jail is the largest mental health institution in any community,” Sheriff Daron Hall said.

The #OpioidCrisis has thrust the most pressing issue facing jails around the country to the forefront: #MentalIllness. (Thread👇)…
On any given day, there are about 750,000 people in jails across America.

Drug addiction and mental health-related issues are often coexisting and it’s difficult to parse out which is driving which.
Hall said the deinstitutionalization of #MentalHealth hospitals that started in the 1960s hasn’t worked and instead has sparked today’s problem.

“The reality is we didn’t really deinstitutionalize it, we just re-institutionalized it into jails and prisons,” he said.

@WHOAFRO @WHOUganda A guided self-help approach that provides strategies for managing distress is safe, and resulted in improvements in psychological distress among female refugees living in a settlement in #Uganda, according to a study published in @LancetGH.

1/ Before I start getting bombarded by feminist groups for promoting Title IX Attorney’s wouldn’t you like to know my views or opinion before you rush to judgment about what I believe? For the conspiracy feminist’s the answer is NO I have never been accused of anything

I had a follower DM me asking why I was excited and “Celebrating” having the Elite Title IX attorney’s following my story. Not wanting to get in an argument, I thanked her and said I would spend some time thinking about her question & send a message out in the group sharing my
perspective. My reasons are fairly simple! First, this group of attorneys, accused student warriors and their supportive family members following my #twitterfeed are amazing. This group together BLAZED a TRAIL & SHINED a LIGHT on #Colleges & #Universities denial of #DueProcess &
#UnFairHearings. #HigherEd Schools have been denying students #fundamentalfairness for years. So without these attorney’s, brave student warriors & supportive families determined to prove their #innocence there would be very little protections for me now as I take the next step

Any political endorsement from from me is not easy to get and must be earned. Those that know me well that in the upcoming 2020 Presidential Election my original endorsement was:


I am firm believer everyone has right to their own opinion, how they choose to
live their life is their business, not my place or role to judge other choices, and I am not always right needing seeking to understand. Regarding supporting Trump I just do NOT UNDERSTAND. I have some good friends that really respect and believe are so smart that are on the
Trump Bandwagon. Thru all my questions and conversations I have come to conclusion they do not support Trump as a President it is more about the message, things they believe need to change, and ideals of the conservative party. I may not agree, but at least I can at least

There are limited data on how such anomalies affect deaths from injuries.

Akin to dropping malware laced USB sticks in the parking lots of IRS buildings or mailing K-Pop demo CDs to select people? Start with analog dispersal at a Trump rally and include some very sketchy and obscure #fakenews site like Whatfinger. #disinfo
Handing out fake newspapers from the Larouche PAC suggesting Trump should align himself with Putin & China is bizarre. Getting a card saying u should avoid traditional news & go to Whatfinger[.]com is a new low. cc @UShadrons @file411 @LuluLemew @leesgirl9
Whatfinger is interesting. The dot com site is of course protected with a privacy guard but is hosted at Godaddy using their WIX website builder feature I believe. SSL certs & past DNS show this. The dot com was first registered on 09-26-2016. #disinfo #fakenews

Jan is #HumanTrafficking awareness month. I am a violence prevention professional, have been a crisis advocate for decades, am a sexual health educator, & also happen to be a former sex worker. Some of my SW was consensual, some out of circumstance, some coerced/trafficked.
I don’t publicly “share my story,” as I find that whole concept to be othering, exploitative, sensationalizing, & inherently/recklessly keeping people stuck in their trauma. I do provide professional feedback & guidance that blends my professional expertise & lived experience.
So I don’t share details of my experience in a linear narrative publicly for other people’s education, edification, or mobilization, bc I think that’s a gross thing to ask a survivor of exploitation to do. I do sometimes weave bits of my experience into my public work as relevant

Welcome to #SchizoChat, the biweekly forum where I ask questions, take questions, and post facts about some #schizophrenia-related topic every ~5 minutes for two hours! Today’s topic: "So, you've just been diagnosed with schizophrenia, now what?"
I’m not an expert on these topics—I’m merely an individual with schizoaffective disorder hoping to get a conversation going and #EndTheStigma. Please correct me if you notice I’m saying something incorrectly, and please share! #SchizoChat
This topic, like most, can get really personal, so please respect each other’s opinions! Or their right to have an opinion at least. #SchizoChat
