My journey within the field of spirituality and mental health has been an
interesting one. It began 30-odd years ago on the day that I wandered into
my first psychiatric ward, a student psychiatric nurse with not much of a clue
about anything. In this strange land of madness, medication and control,
spiritualitywas not a priority and the idea of spiritual care as a discrete aspect
of nursing was not really on the agenda either in terms of education or practice.
It’s not so much that it was avoided, it simply wasn’t an issue....
Prevalence of severe mental distress and its correlates in a population-based study in rural south-west Uganda
Eugene Kinyanda1*, Laban Waswa1, Kathy Baisley2 and Dermot Maher1,2
Background: The problem of severe mental distress (SMD) in sub-Saharan Africa is difficult to investigate given that a substantial proportion of patients with SMD never access formal health care. This study set out to investigate SMD and it’s associated factors in a rural population-based cohort in south-west Uganda.
Since the late 1990s, the volume of research on gender issues in mental
health has grown significantly. One important point that the gender literature
has demonstrated, in addition to clarifying how women’s health
differs from that of men’s, is how little we actually know about men’s
mental health concerns. Although the great body of research in mental
health has historically been based on men, until recently the research has
largely failed to address how male gender integrally influences the clinical
presentation and treatment of various disorders.
This volume brings together five chapters from Disease
Control Priorities in Developing Countries, 2nd edition (DCP2
Jamison and others 2006). These chapters cover mental disorders,
neurological disorders, learning and developmental
disabilities, and alcohol and illicit opiate abuse. The purpose
of this special package is similar to the overall objective of the
parent volume - to provide information on cost-effectiveness
of interventions for these specific groups of disorders.
While he’s best known as the voice of reason and the most level-headed cast member on MTV’s Jersey Shore, what most people don’t know about Vinny Guadagnino is that he suffers from general anxiety disorder, a mental condition he shares with more than 40 million adults in the United States alone, and one he’s battled for most o...more
Over the last decade or two, however, there has been increasing awareness on the impact of
emotional distress during pregnancy—growing recognition that the incidence of depression
during pregnancy is at least as high as it is postnatally (Faisal-Cury & Menezes, 2007;
Marcus, 2009), that the majority of cases of postnatal depression begin during pregnancy

THE Universe is governed by Law - one great Law. Its manifestations are multiform, but viewed from the Ultimate there is but one Law. We are familiar with some of its manifestations, but are almost totally ignorant of certain
others. Still we are learning a little more every day - the veil is being gradually lifted.
We speak learnedly of the Law of Gravitation, but ignore that equally wonderful manifestation, THE LAW OF
ATTRACTION IN THE THOUGHT WORLD.
The acknowledged expert in the psychology of change, Anthony Robbins provides a step-by-step program teaching the fundamental lessons of self-mastery that will enable you to discover your true purpose, take control of your life, and harness the forces that shape your destiny.
Demographic and epidemiological transitions and changes in lifestyle are leading to the
emergence of cancer and other chronic diseases as public health problems in India. Cancer
pattern in India reveals the predominance of tobacco related cancers, which are amenable
to primary prevention. Cancer Registries in different parts of the country reveal that majority
of cancer cases present in an advanced stage and makes treatment options prolonged and
We know the interventions that can save most women’s lives. If every
woman had access to essential maternal care, 74% of maternal deaths could
be prevented4. If all women had access to self–controlled means of HIV/
AIDS protection and were in a position within society to use these methods,
millions of HIV/AIDS deaths could be prevented. Thus, we do not so much
need new technology, as we need to ensure universal access, utilization and equity.
But ensuring universal access, utilization and equity means that our health
services cannot continue to function as “business as usual.
The lessons which compose this volume, originally appeared in the shape of monthly lessons, the first of
which was issued in October, 1905, and the twelfth in September, 1906. These lessons met with a hearty and
generous response from the public, and the present volume is issued in response to the demand for the lessons
in a permanent and durable form. There have been no changes made in the text.
They exhibit the profile characteristic of being credit constrained
with spending out of current income, while simultaneously choosing a “flat” profile for
credit card spending over the pay period. This behavior suggests of the use of a mental
account rule, and thus provides some indication that households in our sample are
sophisticated, and able to use internal commitments to limit overspending.
In summary, the two main stylized facts generated by this paper are difficult to
explain in the standard economic framework.
Understanding of the neuroendocrine system provides an insight into a wide range of bodily and mental processes. Neuroendocrinology and Behavior brings its readers a concise guide to up-to-date knowledge on the function of the endocrine glands and organs in association with neurotransmitters, neuropeptides, and behavioral manifestations. Various forms of stress response, e.g. anxiety and cognitive changes, have been intrinsic to both ourselves and other species.

Chinese artists once valued above perfection.
Together with the numerous individual sculptures that have
emerged from Noguchi’s various studios throughout his long and
distinguished career, the artist has been involved in major environ-
mental projects, especially since the early 1950s.
Technology can be most broadly defined as the entities, both material and immaterial, created by the application of mental and physical effort in order to achieve some value. In this usage, technology refers to tools and machines that may be used to solve real-world problems. It is a far-reaching term that may include simple tools, such as a crowbar or wooden spoon, or more complex machines, such as a space station or particle accelerator. Tools and machines need not be material; virtual technology, such as computer software and business methods, fall under this definition of technology.

Abnormality means behavior, thinking processes, or feelings deemed undesirable
and therefore subject to control or change. Differing points of view about theoretical
orientation, tolerance for deviance, where to draw the line between normal and
abnormal, and the use of labeling lead to differences in the criteria used for
definitions. Important criteria include subjective discomfort, disability or inefficiency,
and deviance, especially bizarre or reality-distorting deviance.
