Fountain House Symposium Looks for Answers to Suicide
This year's Fountain House Symposium and Luncheon took on a formidable subject. Titled "Suicide: Looking for Answers," the event recently drew more than 500 attendees to The Pierre in support of the innovative mental health programs of Fountain House, winner of the Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize. In light of recent reports that suicide in the U.S. has surged to the highest levels in nearly 30 years, the symposium's focus was timely. Suicide tragically ends the lives of more than 40,000 Americans each year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people with mental illness account for the overwhel...

What men can gain from therapy
Speaking for my gender, there are two qualities that define most men: we seldom like to ask for help, and we do not like to talk about our feelings. Combining the two — asking for help about our feelings — is the ultimate affront to many men’s masculinity. We like to think of ourselves as strong, problem-solver types. But when it comes to emotional and mental issues, men need to quit trying to bottle up their feelings and tough it out, says Dr. Darshan Mehta, medical director of the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital. “Your mental health is equally...

Mental Health Month: Normal Teen Angst or Adolescent Mental Illness?
May is Mental Health Month. Mental illness is not an adults-only issue. Almost half of all chronic mental illness begins by age 14; three-quarters by age 24. Yet the stigma associated with mental illness prevents many teens from seeking help. The normal drama, moodiness and withdrawal from family of the teen years can blind parents to a teen’s very real distress. To complicate things further, there are sometimes medical or lifestyle issues at the root of emotional and behavioral change. We should never ignore talk of self-harm or suicide. We should never minimize a teen’s very real emotional pain. But it’s important ...

Antidepressants and pregnancy: More research needed
Follow me at @Drmoniquetello For many women, pregnancy and the arrival of a new baby is a joyous time — but not for every woman. Recently, postpartum depression — extreme feelings of sadness and anxiety following the birth of a child — has come out from the shadows. But what about depression during pregnancy? It’s more common than you think: as many as 14% to 23% of pregnant women will experience symptoms of depression. It’s of sufficient public health concern that the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends screening all pregnant women and new moms for depression. However, treating depression during preg...

Why I'm Coming Out as Bipolar
Tales of a Serial Entrepreneur My therapist thinks I'm crazy for writing publicly that I'm bipolar. Well, she thinks I'm crazy in general, but then again, that's why I see her. Everyone, though, is crazy in their own way. In fact, it's perfectly normal to be crazy. The only question is what form your crazy takes. My crazy comes from the fact that I tend to swing between periods of low moods and high ones, with long periods of neutrality in between. At my lowest point, I'm depressed. My life is a catastrophe, I wake up in the middle of the night with racing thoughts, and I hear you, but I can't connect with you. At my hig...

I Was Unfaithful To My Wife While She Fought for Her Life
This isn't an attempt at issuing a way-after-the-fact mea culpa. Those are too easy. This is my attempt to shed light on the devastating impact mental illness takes on the family members of the person suffering. It's taken me six years to realize how close to the breaking point I came. That's also the same amount of time it took for bipolar disorder to strangle the life from my wife. In September of 2006 my wife was locked up in mental institution for her own safety. The preceding year-long manic episode was almost too much to believe. She moved three hours away from me and our babies. She entered rehab and was promptl...

21-Day Recovery Starts With You!
It is easy to say I have spent the majority of my life in therapy. At first it was as a result of my parents' divorce and the toll my relationship with my father was taking on me and my behavior. The therapy eventually progressed as I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The diagnosis in and of itself didn't upset me. In fact, it was freeing in the sense that it explained or validated many of the experiences I was having. The difficult part at that time in my life was separating the symptoms of my illness from my self. I would regularly say that change is impossible because this is how I was born and this is how things wer...

Bell's mom, a nurse, also warned her that people might shame her if she ever decided to take an antidepressant--which is why Bell is so open about being on medication: "You would never deny a diabetic his insuln, ever," she told Jones.

The biological reductionists act like the secret of psychiatric disorders is written in the genetic code. They are "mindless"- dismissing the crucial role of environment in how our brain develops and of psychology and social context in how it functions. The environmental reductionists go to the opposite "brainless" extreme- argueing that a psychiatric disorder is a direct reflection of life stresses and...

Celebrating My Bipolar Diagnosis
Bipolar disorder is simply a series of symptoms that I am fortunate enough to have to manage on a daily basis.

It has forced me to grow as a person and get in touch with who I truly am. Getting up on a daily basis is sometimes truly exhausting.
