http://blogs.psychcentral.com/humor Yes, there is an actual phobia of Friday the 13th! It's called, Friggatriskaidekaphobia, and the etymology is broken down as "Frigga" related to the Norse goddess (Njörun) associated with Friday and the Greek word "triskaídeka" referring to the number 13 (thirteen) and "phobia" meaning fear. Put it all together and you have Friggatriskaidekaphobia = The Fear of Friday the thirteenth (13). Friggatriskaidekaphobia is an anxiety-prone day for some, filled with superstition and the wait for a black cat to cross their path or to step on a crack to break their mother's back. Why is it that there are always ladders around, just waiting for a person to walk under them or a mirror precariously positioned to fall and break when you walk near it?

Recognizing Stress Americans are STRESSED OUT!! Many of us, young and old, are under “extreme” stress. In our household of two parents and four kids, at times the stress level gets pretty high!! A recent article in our local paper said: “the American psychological Association conducted 1, 134 adults ages 18 or older from Aug. 3 to Aug. 27, including 100 adults who were parents of children ages 8 to 17. In addition to the national sample, the association surveyed another 937 adult parents. The report also includes the results of another online survey from Aug. 19 to Aug 24 of 1, 136 young people ages 8 to 17. The survey found that a majority of Americans are living with “moderate” stress, which is a stress level of four to seven on a scale of one to 10.”
Title: Glenn To Close A year ago on October 21, 2009 Glenn and Jessie Close launched the first anti-stigma Public Service Announcement (PSA) from BringChange2Mind. The 30-second PSA that aired on Comcast, Fox Networks, Lifetime, Time Warner Cable and a variety of local affiliates made a great impact on the Mental health Community. Ron Howard at the camera and John Mayer's song "Say" in the background really added to this powerful message.

We need to understand anger issues, this is the example in today's Mental Health Humor Psychology Cartoons. NOT all angry people are "obviously" mad and angry all the time! We my fall into the category of Mild or Serious Anger Issues; where we may struggle not to lose our temper daily, but can go from cold to hot tempered in a flash!
Mental Health Services Consumer: Wow, So, signing these voluntary admission papers will get me a 3 day vacation for FREE?! Psychiatrist: Either you sign them or I’ll give you a 51/50 Mental Health Services Consumer: COOL I can see Van Halen... I’ll take the 51/50! Title: 72 Hour Evaluation, Do You Know Your Rights? 5150 (Involuntary psychiatric hold)
Contesting the holdThe person under a 5150 hold has a limited ability to contest the legality of the hold. While the person has the right of demanding a writ of habeas corpus, the decision of whether to file it lies with the county public defender. Since such a writ may take a day or two to file, the public defender usually chooses not to pursue it, as the hold would expire before the anticipated court date.
