Stigma surrounding mental illness is still prevalent

first_imgVANCOUVER – The stigma associated with mental illness has been decreasing but there’s still a long way to go, according to a mental health and addictions expert.“We have noticed stigma, overall, has gone down in the past five-to-10 years, and certainly more so in the past two-to-five years, with increased communication, conversations and normalizing the talk around mental illness,” said Dr. Katy Kamkar, a clinical psychologist with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Vancouver.“That is encouraging people to come forward and seek support and help but, nevertheless, we also know that people continue to suffer in silence and that stigma remains very prevalent.”Dr. Kamkar suggests stigma can come in different forms; from others and from within.“Personal stigma refers to one’s perception of mental illness in general or of others suffering from mental illness. There is also self-stigma, which can be very, very disabling,” she said. “That’s when we start appraising ourselves — our thoughts, our emotions — in relation to mental illness and start internalizing other people’s attitudes toward ourselves.”That can result, Kamkar says, in negative self-talk and self-labelling.Workplace stigma can also be an issue, including whether or not an organization provides the support and resources needed for employees who are struggling.As we mark Mental Health Week, Dr. Kamkar says it is important for everyone to be educated about mental health issues.“It’s about building our own awareness so that, of course, when we recognize the signs and symptoms within ourselves that we seek help and support. But we also want to build understanding in general so that if we know someone is suffering, we are better able to listen, to accept, and to help in any way we can.”As people have become more open about mental illness, Kamkar says young people especially are more apt to have conversations about it.“We have seen that youth mental health is a top priority and we know that youth — especially between the ages of 15 and 24 — report the highest level of mental health problems in addition to addiction.”She points out suicide is the second leading cause of death among youth and adolescents, so it is vital to let people know where to go when they need help.“You need access to care, resources, and expertise. We know that psychological treatment — especially evidence-based cognitive behavioural therapy — has been found to be very effective for anxiety and depression.”But, she adds, help often starts with an empathetic ear.“Of course the context matters, but it is important to know the power of listening. Sometimes we might know what to say or what to do, but just listening and being there for the person is very, very powerful,” Kamkar said.“Leave the door open so the person is able to make a choice, but let them know there is a supportive person there for them.”-With files from Amanda Wawryklast_img read more

Barbara Bush Foundation For Family Literacy Launches Share The Love Campaign

first_imgThe Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy, the nation’s leading advocate for family literacy, announced its newest campaign: “Share the Love of Reading.”This innovative effort encourages visitors to send a personalized card recommending their favorite books to family and friends through the www.helpthemread.org website.“I’m going to share with my mom (former First Lady Barbara Bush), that I’m currently reading Cell by Robin Cook,” said Doro Bush Koch, honorary chairman of the Barbara Bush Foundation. “I’m half-way through the book, and am glad I need the light on to read.”The Pew Research Center reported last year that nearly a quarter of American adults had not read a single book in the past year, which includes paperbacks, online or audiobooks. To encourage reading, the Foundation designed a campaign to promote literacy as an important value that provides a fun way for teachers, parents and bibliophiles to share their love of reading. Individuals can share the books they love via a digital card or a postcard, both offered free through the website.“Sharing the love of reading is something that we don’t always do, even though it may be one of our favorite activities,” said President and CEO Liza McFadden. “We hope everyone, including teachers and parents, will take this opportunity to share their love for a book. It’s a fun way to remind someone that you’re thinking of them, and we appreciate the opportunity to remind everyone about the importance of literacy.”Here’s what others are saying about the Share the Love of Reading campaign:“I have just finished reading I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai with Christina Lamb. This is a must-read book for ages sixth grade and beyond. In the story, we are reminded that one voice can make a difference, and we must not take for granted our education, as there are many who have no access to education.” – Michelle Staubach Grimes.“There are two kinds of reading I love most. The first one is by far the greatest experience – and that is reading with my kids because we are able to experience the story together. The second involves reading non-fiction biographies that tell a story about someone’s adversity and how they overcome obstacles.” – Pamela Shriver, American former tennis professional and ESPN commentator.“I keep a closet full of newly discovered books so I’m never empty-handed when the opportunity arises to learn and to share. As a teacher, parent, and grandparent, books have been the means to explore feelings, learn information, stimulate imagination, and understand the world. A love of reading is one of the greatest gifts we can give each new generation. The curiosity reading cultivates is essential to our forward momentum as a society.” – Barbara Cambridge, Interim Executive Director, National Council of Teachers of English.“I’m currently reading two compelling books, Integrity by Henry Cloud and Zero to One by Peter Theil. These books share riveting insights that are relevant to anyone, and I’ve been sharing them with my family and closest friends. Most avid readers love to share books, so I’m thrilled to support the Share the Love of Reading campaign.” – Errol St. Clair Smith, Executive Director, Academy of Education Arts and Sciences.“I would recommend My First Books by BabyFirst, which offer age appropriate digital books for children up to four years. This virtual library helps develop the love for reading at a very young age and is a fun activity for parents and children.” – Sharon Rechter, Co-Founder and Principal, BabyFirst.Source:BarbaraBush.orglast_img read more

Jose Morinho Says He Will Not Leave Chelsea

Rabat – FC Chelsea manager, Jose Morinho, denied reports that his days at Stamford Bridge are numbered, saying he has no intention to quit the club under ‘any circumstance’ despite what he describes as the worst start a team of his has ever had to a season.Despite his club’s stuttering beginning of the Premier League – one win in four matches -, Morniho is adamnt he is in for long haul at Stamford Bridge, according to the Daily Star.“I don’t want to leave the club, in any circumstances. And the club doesn’t want me to leave, ” Morinho said. “The club is not going to sack me. Full stop.”Multiple British media reports claimed that Morinho’s relationship with Chelsea’s hierarchy has deteriorated after the coach’s row with medical staff and his dissatisfaction with Chelsea board’s efforts during the summer transfer window.British media even speculated that the Blues boss could repeat his 2007 departure from Chelsea after a disagreement with the Stamford Bridge hierarchy.Meanwhile, Morniho put an end to these speculations, emphasizing that this time around things are different than in 2007.“Why is it different from 2007? Do people think, if myself and Mr. Abramovich collided, I would be back three years later?,” Morinho said.“Just because I left it does not mean we collided. Right now we have one problem. We are not getting the results we expect to get.”“I have never had a start like this – four matches and just four points. I’m not happy – and I’m happy that I’m not happy,” Morinho concluded. read more

Man sentenced to four months for child luring

A Brantford man who quickly confessed to trying to lure a Norfolk child into sexual behaviour over the internet caught several breaks when his case was heard in Simcoe’s Ontario Court recently.Matthew J. Monahan, 23, admitted he engaged in four days of sexual conversations with a 14-year-old, including sending her a video of him masturbating and encouraging her to send him nude photos.And, to the concern of Justice Colette Good, Monahan repeatedly pushed to meet the girl so they could “kiss, cuddle and date”, which the judge characterized as “grooming” behaviour.But several circumstances stopped Good from imposing a much longer sentence than the four months of jail Monahan finally was ordered to serve.Good noted that Monahan was immediately cooperative with police when he was arrested, gave a full confession and later wrote a letter of apology to his victim.For a full year before his sentencing, Monahan did his utmost to get the matter dealt with but – due to illnesses, a death in someone’s family and various discussions between the lawyers – his matter faced another eight court appearances where he and his family turned up, uncertain about whether Monahan would be taken into custody.“I’m sure each time he presented himself to the court has been significantly stressful to him,” said Good, noting that Monahan would have served his time and put the matter behind him if he had been allowed to proceed immediately as he wished.“He’s never been to jail before and will be going in as a sexual predator.” said Good, “and his time in jail is not going to be pleasant. He’s going to be at the bottom of the food chain as far as other offenders are concerned”In addition, while the government has called for stiffer sentences on child luring, the Ontario Court of Appeal recently struck down a one-year mandatory minimum sentence for a first offence.“Sentencing ranges are only a portrait and not a straightjacket that binds the court,” said Good. “I have to weigh the features of each case.”Along with Monahan’s swift acceptance of responsibility, Good noted that he was heavily abusing drugs at the time of the incident and said that behaviour never would have happened if he had been sober.She also noted that Monahan didn’t grow up learning about healthy and consensual relationship boundaries and said he was willing to take sex offender treatment.On the other hand, Good said, Monahan was dealing with a real victim, even though she was a willing participant in the conversations.“He was 21 and she was 14. He knew she was 14 and nonetheless persisted.”Good said Monahan sent a picture of his penis to the girl and pushed her to send photos to him. She eventually sent a picture of herself wearing only a bra.The conversations stopped when the girl’s mother discovered what was going on and phoned the police.Assistant Crown attorney Gracie Romano asked Good to consider four to six months of jail time for Monahan and his defence lawyer, Shawn Swarts, who hoped for a conditional sentence until realizing it wasn’t allowed by law, asked the judge for leniency.Good agreed, saying she normally would have imposed a six-month sentence but, due to it being Monahan’s first offence and the fact that there was a significant delay not of his making, opted for four months.When released, Monahan will have a three-year probation and be under a 10-year order where he can’t use a computer to communicate with anyone under 16.“If you breach this order, you’ll almost certainly go to jail for a long time,” warned Good.Monahan will be on the sexual offenders list for the rest of his life.SGamble@postmedia.com read more

Notch indefintely shelves Mojangs space game 0x10c

first_imgAfter releasing over four years ago in 2009,  Minecraft continues to be an enormous success. The popularity of the game propelled its creator, Markus Persson, into the gaming limelight. The profit generated from the game allowed Persson, perhaps more famously known as Notch, to bolster his game development studio, Mojang, into more than a one-person job. Now, the studio has another successful game in open beta, Scrolls, a digital TCG played on a grid. Notch, though, didn’t work much on Scrolls, as he was focused more on a game titled 0x10c, a space game that may have MMO elements. We haven’t gotten to see much of the game, and now it looks like we may never see anything else, as Notch has shelved the game indefinitely.Redditor Nouht was speaking to Notch in a Team Fortress 2 livestream, when the Minecraft creator said that he has no future aspirations for 0x10c, and that he will instead continue working on smaller games for the rest of his life. He did say that if someone else at the Mojang office wanted to pick up where he left off, that would be fine.Back in April, Notch did say that the game was “on ice” until he could bypass some creative blocks. He cited the main problem as it not being very fun to play — certainly an important aspect of a game. With Notch’s comments in the livestream, though, it would seem the development on the game has moved from “on ice” to “canceled.”The game might live life in the hands of the community, though, as 0x10c subreddit users have banded together in order to keep development trucking along. They’d be building the engine from scratch, and Notch didn’t really shed too many details about the game, so the subreddit subscribers would more or less be developing their own space game. Notch’s vision of 0x10c will likely never come to pass.last_img read more

Soybean Farmers Support Farm Bill Conference Report Urge House and Senate to

first_imgThe farmers of the American Soybean Association (ASA) congratulated conferees from the House and Senate as the final version of the much-anticipated farm bill was filed with the House clerk tonight and awaits action on the floor as soon as Wednesday.ASA supports the bill, which provides for multiple soybean farmer priorities, most notably a flexible farm safety net that includes a choice between price-based and revenue-based risk management tools and maintains the decoupling of payments under both programs from current planted acreage.“This has been a trying process to be sure, but we think that through it all, the conferees and their leadership have produced a framework that will serve the best interests of soybean farmers,” said Ray Gaesser, ASA President and farmer from Corning, Iowa. “Chairwoman Stabenow, Chairman Lucas and Ranking Members Cochran and Peterson deserve great credit and our sincere thanks for pushing this bill to the finish line. We are grateful for that hard work and perseverance, and we call on the House and the Senate to vote “yes” and bring the process to a conclusion.”The bill includes a choice between an ASA-supported revenue program that covers both price and yield losses with county and farm level options, and a price support program which allows the optional purchase of insurance coverage under a Supplemental Coverage Option (SCO). The bill also eliminates controversial Direct Payments while maintaining decoupled farm support programs that will minimize the possibility of planting and production distortions that could trigger new WTO challenges. The language in Title 1 allows producers to choose between maintaining existing crop acreage base or reallocating their current base acreage to reflect average acres planted to covered commodities in 2009-2012.“The bill establishes practical risk management programs that will protect us in difficult times. That’s been our top priority from day one,” said Gaesser. “But beyond that, we support this bill because it strengthens crop insurance; includes a streamlining and optimizing of conservation programs; funds critical energy and agricultural research initiatives; and invests in the trade development programs that are so critical to the soybean industry.”On crop insurance, the bill makes enterprise units permanent, allows growers to purchase enterprise unit coverage for both irrigated and dryland crops, authorizes a new Supplemental Coverage Option (SCO), and will help to strengthen the next generation of agriculture by providing a 10 percent increase in premium support to beginning farmers and ranchers.“Make no mistake, this bill represents a reform to the farm program,” added Gaesser. “It will make the programs on which we depend more relevant and more defensible, but it will also prevent those programs from distorting planting decisions and potentially impacting the marketplace.”The bill also secures several other ASA priorities, including agricultural research programs like the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) and the new Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR); the export promotion work done by the Foreign Market Development (FMD) and Market Access Program (MAP) on which soybeans depend as the nation’s top farm export; and key energy programs, including the Biodiesel Education Program and a strengthened Biobased Markets Program. Additionally, the bill consolidates 23 previous conservation programs into 13, while focusing conservation efforts on working lands.“In addition to the bill’s victories for soybean farmers, it is important to note what the bill does for the country as a whole,” said Gaesser. “The bill still provides for those in need of food assistance by preserving the decades-old balance and partnership between farm and nutrition programs that has seen farm legislation through in years past. The bill also addresses our nation’s budgetary issues by cutting $24 billion over ten years, making agriculture the only industry sector that has come together despite its differences and contributed to deficit reduction.“The bill is a compromise,” Gaesser added. “It ensures the continued success of American agriculture, and we encourage both the House and the Senate to pass it quickly.”The bill now awaits action by the full House, which could come as soon as Wednesday.last_img read more

Library district braces for new cutbacks

first_imgAs Southwest Washington property values continue to tank, Fort Vancouver Regional Library District leaders are poised to adopt $1.25 million in spending cutbacks in the system’s 2012-13 budget.District officials are preparing to lay off employees at library branches and the district headquarters, scale back professional services and capital improvements and permanently retire the Clark County Bookmobile.What they won’t do: Trim library branch service days or hours, just months after they were restored with aid of a property tax levy lid lift approved by voters last year.That tax measure followed a round of service reductions made in early 2009.Anticipated property tax revenue in the four-county district — which supplies about 95 percent of library funding — is just shy of $21 million for the 2011-12 budget cycle.For the 2012-13 cycle, estimated property tax revenue is $19.1 million: a decline of about 9 percent.Falling property values have pushed the library tax rate to its maximum 50 cents per $1,000 limit allowed by Washington state law.Any further drop in total assessed property directly slices FVRL’s property tax funding (unlike locally approved school operating levies, where tax rates are not capped).last_img read more
