Capitalism is making sure you aren't struggling too much with your mental health so you can keep working in the same conditions that are causing you to struggle with your mental health.
This #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth the @Surgeon_General and I would love to know: since we refuse to support Medicare for All, who do you turn to when you’re struggling with your #MentalHealth—and does that person accept insurance or only patients who can pay cash?
As the @Surgeon_General's friend's friend reminded him, it’s OK to not be OK, so long as you can go to work and keep your healthcare benefits.

As we mourn the horrific murder of Jordan Neely and join his community in rage, we are compelled to share some stories from our work that show the routine brutalization and criminalization of people with mental illness. 🧵
We hope these stories will radicalize you as they have moved our communities to question the current paradigms of public safety.

Most of these stories are deeply troubling. Almost all are clear examples where harm could have been prevented.

Please take care with the content.
When we began this work in 2006, we knew almost nothing about the intersection of mental health and the punishment system.

As time passed, we heard more and more from families whose loved ones were being arrested in mental health crises.

🚀New Publication📚We examined the effect of telehealth expansion on counseling service-seeking intention via DiD analysis, providing support for #telehealth. We also highlighted worsened racial disparities in mental health. #TherapistTwitter…
thread (1/8) Image
Results from DiD show the shift to telehealth wasn't associated with a change in counseling service-seeking intentions among clients, both for racial/ethnic minorities and White individuals. (2/8) #MentalHealthServices #Access Image
Implication 1: no evidence suggests declines in counseling service-seeking intentions after the universal shift to telehealth around March 15, 2020. Current policies tied to telehealth should continue beyond the pandemic. @CounselingViews @ACA_CTOnline #TelehealthPolicy (3/8)

The mind/mana is denoted by the Moon. The inherent nature of the Mind is to desire and needs an anchor for guidance for fulfillment. The planets that give Gati or direction to the mana are the ones in 2/12 and/or/ planet(s) conjoining and/or Kendras to it (Moon). #JyotishKatti Image
The absence of ALL the above can denote a mind that has no fixed desire. Is this good? For spirituality, this can be a plus. However, for mundane matters, this can be a -ve. This is called Kemadruma Yoga. Is there any remedy for this?
Before I get to the remedy we need to take a deep dive. What is this all about? It is for a very important reason, that the maharishis have given importance to Chandra Lagna. The chart viewed from Moon as Lagna shows our emotional makeup. The quality of various responses.

Today marks the end of #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth, and we'd like to say a word on mental health in #tech.

51% of tech workers have been diagnosed with a mental health condition. By contrast, 19.1% of U.S. adults experience mental illness.

How can we change that? THREAD 🧵
Above all, we've got to open up about our struggles.

In this thread, 3 of our #founders talk openly about their mental health and tools that help them maintain it - tackling issues such as burnout, work-life balance and fear of failure.

Let's see what they have to say.
Founder & CEO of @KairnApp, @patbsci, recommends writing something down when it bothers you, daily.

"If it consistently bothers me 7 days in a row, then it means it’s not going away", she says. "Do something to change it, don’t let it eat away your energy."

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
