Depression is common in old age balloons


World Mental Health Day: Depression
I blog for World Mental Health DayEvery year on the 10th of October,* The World Health Organization joins in celebrating World Mental Health Day.  Here at Psych Central we are (as a network) participating our 3rd Annual World Mental Health Day .  This year World Mental Health Day: Mental Health and Older Adults.

Mental Health Humor Cartoon by Chato StewartProjection Therapy

Peer Dressed like Charlie Brown: My therapist was big on ME reenacting “HIS”childhood counterpart.
Peer looks Like Captain Hook:  Mine too, but you’re Lucky, MY Therapist was fixated on “HIS” peter Pan Fantasy.Caption: The not so rare Projection Therapy

This is a VERY special day. It’s not my fault if you don’t know what it is and how special it is and why you should take a second out of your shopping or work day to reflect on today’s uniqueness (no it not  Projection Therapy!).

Today: December 12, 2012 will be the last time this century there will be the same digits in sequence – 12/12/12.  The past 12 years we had the following sequenced dates:

  • January 1, 2001 as 01/01/01
  • February 2, 2002 as 02/02/02
  • March 3, 2003 as 03/03/03
  • April 4, 2004 as 04/04/04
  • May 5, 2005 as 05/05/05
  • June 6, 2006 as 06/06/06
  • July 7, 2007 as 07/07/07
  • August 8, 2008 as 08/08/08
  • September 9, 2009 as 09/09/09
  • October 10, 201o as 10/10/10
  • November 11, 2011 as 11/11/11
  • Today December 12, 2012 as 12/12/12

The next time this will happen won’t be for another 998 years on January 1, 3001 (01/01/01)!

Now about the cartoons. There are 2 different perspectives/views in the cartoons, that of a clinician and that of a client. I wrote it that way so, it can be used in your doctor’s office or on your fridge at home. :)
