PTSD: It’s Not Just for Veterans

Despite popular belief, regular, everyday people—not just our nation’s veterans—can develop post traumatic stress disorder, PTSD. While it’s understandable that a wartime experience could cause trauma, there are also plenty of other experiences—experiences that happen in everyday life—that could also cause an equally dramatic psychiatric response. However, while the specifics of a traumatic event are important, the key is that the event must fundamentally conflict with our understanding of ourselves or of our environment: that is what causes...

The Many Faces of Anxiety: 3 Little-Known Anxiety Disorders

Few of us are lucky enough to live anxiety-free. In fact, we’d wager that not a single person has lived a life untouched by a tightness in the stomach, tense muscles, a racing heart, or any other one of anxiety’s myriad of symptoms. This is because anxiety is a normal, even necessary part of life. It is the body’s alarm system, alerting us to potential dangers. Without it, what’s to stop us from wandering down life’s many dark alleys, literal or figurative? All too often, anxiety can get out of control, though. Those who suffer from chronic...

Spotting the Signs of Adolescent Depression

33 percent of parents claim that they are confident in their ability to spot the signs of depression in their teenaged child. While your instinct may be to applaud these parents in their confidence, it’s important to understand that teen depression is very difficult to distinguish from the normal ups-and-downs of adolescence. Overconfidence in your ability to identify the signs of depression in your teen may, at best, result in misdiagnosis, and, at worst, result in missing the signs of a potentially debilitating mental health disorder....

Spravato (Esketamine): What Is It, And How Could It Save Lives?

Did you know that there are about 14 million people in the United States who struggle with a major depressive disorder at some point in their lives? Shocking, right?

Spravato for Suicidal Patients

Suicide claimed more than 47,000 lives in the United States in 2017. This frightening number represents the people who have lost all hope in themselves, and in their environments.

Lacking an effective treatment to lift their spirits, many have unfortunately—and unecessarily— lost their lives. The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) recent approval of the depression drug Spravato (esketamine), marks the first new drug to be approved for the...
