What Is Usually the Root Cause of Mental Illness? 

 

Is mental illness just an outcome (not sure if that's the right word) of mental and emotional insecurities? originally appeared on Quora, the place to gain and share knowledge, empowering people to learn from others and better understand the world. You can follow Quora on Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus.

There is no one cause of mental illness. Some seem to have a strong genetic component, such as Schizophrenia, and others appear to be the obvious result of an exposure to environmental trauma, such as a soldier’s PTSD, with everything in between these two extremes.

Here are some of the main variables that combine to determine the likelihood that someone will develop a diagnosable mental disorder:

Suicide Rate For Girls Has Been Rising Faster Than For Boys, Study Finds 

 

The number of people dying by suicide in the U.S. has been rising, and a new study shows that the suicide rate among young teenage girls has been increasing faster than it has for boys of the same age.

Boys are still more likely to take their own lives. But the study published Friday in JAMA Network Open finds that girls are steadily narrowing that gap.

Researchers examined more than 85,000 youth suicides that occurred between 1975 and 2016. Donna Ruch, a researcher at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, who worked on the study, tells NPR that a major shift occurred after 2007.

Researchers found the increase was highest for girls ages 10 to 14, rising by nearly 13% since 2007. While for boys of the same age, it rose by 7%.

"That's where we saw the most significant narrowing of the gender gap," Ruch says.

Measles Cases Soar To 839 Amid Worst Outbreak In 25 Years 

 

The number of confirmed measles cases across the U.S. has reached 839, and the country is experiencing its worst outbreak of the disease since 1994.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Monday that the tally for the year had jumped by 75 within a single week as of May 10, and that the outbreak had affected 23 states.

The crisis is hitting New York the hardest; 66 of the new cases have been reported there, according to CNBC. Forty-one of those were reported in New York City, which in April announced mandatory vaccinations in Brooklyn and declared a public health emergency within parts of the borough.

New Study Finds 73% of Independent Musicians Suffer From Symptoms of Mental Illness 

 

Digital distribution platform Record Union, which conducted the survery, has committed to donating $30,000 to projects supporting struggling artists.
Nearly three-quarters of independent musicians have experienced “stress, anxiety and/or depression” in relation to their work, a new study has found.

The results, which were published on April 30, are based on a web survey of nearly 1,500 independent musicians by Swedish-based digital distribution platform Record Union between March 21 and April 2. The survey found 73% of the population had faced negative mental health issues, with anxiety and depression topping the list of symptoms. Among those aged 18-25, the numbers are even worse, with 80% of respondents in that age range having experienced negative mental health effects stemming from their music careers.

London schoolgirl Ella Kissi-Debrah could become first person to have "air pollution" listed as cause of death in the UK 

 

A court ruling could lead to a 9-year-old London girl becoming the first person to have "air pollution" listed as a cause of death in the United Kingdom, her legal team says.

Ella Kissi-Debrah died in 2013 after three years of having severe asthma attacks, her mother Rosamund Kissi-Debrah told CBS News Friday. When Ella died, the cause of her death was determined to be a severe asthma attack that led to respiratory failure. New evidence, her legal team claims, shows her death was caused by pollution in the air she breathed.

"When she was alive, we couldn't get to the bottom of what was triggering her asthma, so I thought I would give it my best shot (to find out), as her mother, although she's no longer here," Kissi-Debrah told CBS News. "I didn't have any plans or any ideas what I was going to find out, all I knew was it was to do with something in the air."

Can Porn Help People Understand Consent? 

 

Imagine this: You're surfing the Internet, looking for some porn to watch (you know why), and after scrolling for what seems like forever, you finally find a video that fits what you're in the mood for. You click play, and after watching the prerequisite awkward intro, you hear one person in the film ask another, "Is it OK if I kiss you?"

Consent between performers may be happening behind the scenes, but much of the porn we see, particularly the free kind young people are likely to find online, doesn't include explicit examples of verbal consent on camera prior to sexual acts. Since sex education laws across the U.S. continue to lag, not providing the country's young people with a solid understanding of sexual interactions, and since we know that may impact the number of young people who understand consent, it begs the question: What if we saw more consent in our porn?

According to a survey from the U.K., 60% of students in the survey had turned to porn to learn more about sex, and 40% of them said porn colored their understanding of what sex is. Young people in the U.S. also report turning to porn when their school sex ed classes don't equip them for the realities of sex.

Social Media Erupts After Boy Is Forced To Color In His Hair With Marker 

 

Social media was on fire after Angela Washington posted photos on her Facebook page of her 12-year-old son, Juelz Trice, with permanent marker colored into his hair. Trice had been told by an administrator at Berry Miller Junior High in Pearland, TX, where he attends 7th grade, that he was in violation of the school district’s dress code, after he arrived with an “M” carved into his hair.

Trice told ABC13 Eyewitness News in Houston, TX, that the administrator told him that he had two options: an in-school suspension, or to color in the fresh shave.

While some people thought it wasn’t an issue, and that the pre-teen needs to “follow the dress code,” most people who saw the Facebook post from the boy’s mother were as disgusted and outraged as she was. They were not here for the clap backs that supported the administrator’s decision, and took to social media to voice their outrage:

9 Reasons Hookup Culture Isn't All That It's Cracked Up To Be 

 

A lot of people enjoy hookup culture, but that doesn't mean it's for everyone. Personally, I participated in hookup culture in college, and I had mixed feelings. While I definitely enjoyed frequenting the 24-hour froyo place (self-serve, my sometimes nemesis) with my "friend for the evening", I missed being in a stable relationship. Even though hookup culture is perfectly healthy, as long as everyone is being respectful of everyone else, there's nothing wrong with not liking it. There are be reasons hookup culture isn't all that, and it's totally normal if it's not your favorite.

Hookup culture comes with its fair share of downsides. Sure, if you're watching Riverdale, you may think it seems fun, but if you're watching Grey's Anatomy, you might think "get out of the on-call room and stitch those people up, their terminal illness aren't going to magically cure themselves before the commercial break!" Not everyone enjoys hookup culture, and if you've never wanted to partake in it, that's totally normal. Any sort of sexual activity needs to be something you truly want to do and consensual, and if you don't like to engage in casual hookups, you're not alone.

YOUNG PEOPLE ARE CHOOSING TO LIVE IN “PODS” INSTEAD OF APARTMENTS 

 

Young people have long chosen to rent coworking spaces and take rideshares instead of buying cars.

Now, some are pushing the sharing economy to its logical conclusion: NPR reports that young people in Los Angeles — and other cities around the country — are choosing to rent small pods instead of an apartment.

Through a service called PodShare, young people are giving up the comfort of a private home for a bunk bed with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities.

Adult children are eating into parents’ retirement savings: Study 

 

If you thought the Bank of Mom and Dad closed its doors after the kids have grown up, think again.

The average cost of raising a child to age 18 is estimated to be $233,610, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The expenses continue long after your child has entered adulthood.

Half of parents participating in a recent Bankrate.com survey said that they’ve sacrificed their own retirement savings in order to help their grown children with their finances.

Top health official issues new warning on rare polio-like disease 
 

One morning last fall, 4-year-old Joey Wilcox woke up with the left side of his face drooping. It was the first sign of an unfolding nightmare.

Three days later, Joey was in a hospital intensive care unit, unable to move his arms or legs or sit up. Spinal taps and other tests failed to find a cause. Doctors worried he was about to lose the ability to breathe.

"It's devastating," said his father, Jeremy Wilcox, of Herndon, Virginia. "Your healthy child can catch a cold — and then become paralyzed."

Psychologist who played a key role in opposing LGBT lessons in schools is to be investigated over links to material calling for gay people to be 'lashed and killed' 

 

A psychologist, who has continuously opposed LGBT lessons in schools, is to be investigated over her opposition to homosexuality.

Dr Kate Godfrey-Faussett, who is a lead figure in the Stop RSE campaign and converted to Islam 25 years ago, is now under investigation by the Health and Care Professions Council over her views, The Guardian has reported.

An investigation carried by the Observer earlier this year found that the National Secular Society (NSS) had written to the Health and Care Professions Council, the governing body for Godfrey-Faussett's profession, over whether her role is compatible with the ethical standards of her professional body.

In a letter seen by the paper, dated on February 18, the NSS warned that the campaign group had 'promoted material which says the punishment for homosexuality is death.'

More than one in ten boys at primary school are being labelled as suffering from a mental disorder, amid growing concerns about their classroom behaviour, research suggests. 
 

More than one in ten boys at primary school are being labelled as suffering from a mental disorder, amid growing concerns about their classroom behaviour, research suggests.

The NHS report, which examines the factors which may increase the risk of mental illness, found young boys were twice as likely as girls the same age to suffer such problems.

Experts said “difficult” behaviour in young children could be a sign of emotional distress that they struggled to talk about.

The figures from NHS Digital show 12.2 per cent of boys aged between five and 10 were found to be likely to be suffering from a mental disorder, along with 6.6 per cent of girls.

Parkland Students Share Mental Health Resources to Support Each Other 

 

After two Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students died by apparent suicides in the span of just a week, current and former students at the school are calling on the Parkland community to support its young people with mental health services. On social media, survivors are reminding us of the supports available when you're having a hard time.

Anti-gun violence activist David Hogg, who graduated from Stoneman Douglas in 2018, took to Twitter in the wake of his classmates' deaths, saying that the trauma endured after a mass shooting doesn't fade quickly.

"Stop saying you’ll get over it,'" he wrote. "You don’t get over something that never should have happened because those that die from gun violence are stolen from us not naturally lost. Trauma and loss don’t just go away, you have to learn to live with it through getting support."
