Depression rates high among Mumbai residents

first_imgDepression rates high among Mumbai residents Related Posts Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals releases first “Comprehensive Textbook of COVID-19” Read Article Add Comment Sandra Adam 2 years Phoenix Business Consulting invests in telehealth platform Healpha MaxiVision Eye Hospitals launches “Mucormycosis Early Detection Centre” Comments (1) By EH News Bureau on April 11, 2019 Depression treatment becomes a necessity when you have been feeling low for longer than 2 weeks. It is advisable to seek help from a professional depression counselor before the situation worsens. 40 per cent of Mumbai’s youth aged between 20-30 admit to being depressedA growing number of people in India’s financial capital are finding themselves in the grip of depression with lack of social support, unhealthy lifestyles and prevalence of chronic illnesses exacerbating mental health problem.Doctors say while rates of depression have increased in recent years due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors, the stigma surrounding the subject is preventing a majority of people from getting timely treatment and help.“Depression is more than just a low mood. It’s a serious mental health condition that has an impact on both physical and mental health. The burden of depression cannot be ignored because it can lead to serious complications. There is increasing stress in every aspect of our lives today and lack of social support makes it more difficult for a person to fight against it. The prevalence of depression increases with age and is more common in middle and elderly age group. However, in recent years young people in their 20s and 30s are also reporting prevalence of depression and image issues. Unhealthy lifestyles and highly stressful work environments are factors that contribute to the increasing burden. People suffering from chronic illnesses who struggle with long term implications of disease and continuous intake of medication also feel depressed,” says Dr Sagar Karia, Secretary, Bombay Psychiatric Society.Doctors describe depression as a state of mind in which people experience bad mood, grief, loss of interest in activities they once enjoyed and even suicidal thoughts. Doctors say the risk of depression gets exacerbated by certain life events such as the death of a loved one, relationship issues, physical illness and other problems caused by alcohol and drug use.According to mental health experts, in India mental health disorders like depression and anxiety do not get the attention they need and majority of people stay untreated for long periods.Increased stress, poor environmental conditions and prevalence of unhealthy lifestyles, have greatly contributed to a surge in the number of non-communicable diseases. Mental and neurological conditions and substance abuse are also included under the broader rubric of non communicable diseases and are increasingly being recognised as major public health problems.“Improving lifestyle, maintaining work-life balance, and adopting healthy food habits can help in combating depression. A patient must also take help of Psychotherapy, also known cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to treat the condition. It is necessary to take food rich in folic acid, Vitamin B-12 and Vitamin D along with anti-depressants to treat depression symptoms. If you find any colleague or individual displaying symptoms of depression, encourage them to see a doctor immediately,” added Dr Karia.According to a 2018 survey by Podar Institute of Education, around 40 per cent of Mumbai’s youth aged between 20 and 30 have admitted to being depressed. But a small number of them took any step to address this condition.Disturbed sleep, loss of appetite, constant feeling of fatigue, poor concentration and anxiety disorders should be considered as symptoms of depression.Experts say it is difficult to find exact causes of the depression as it is a complex combination of factors that includes genetics. Environmental, psychological and social factors are interrelated to each other when it comes to mental health. To resolve the problem of depression it is important to seek the help of a health professional and further ensure an accurate diagnosis is done for an effective treatment.A WHO report says almost 80 per cent people diagnosed with mental illness sickness do not seek any of treatment. The report further says there are 150 million people in India who need access to treatment.

Solicitor, 28, who fabricated court letters is struck off

first_imgThe SRA charged Holloway, who was two years’ post-qualification, with four allegations, including dishonestly fabricating court letters and misleading her employer.She did not appear at today’s hearing despite four separate attempts to notify her of the proceedings.Andrew Bullock, representing the SRA, said: ‘She was deliberately concealing from her employer the fact that the claim had been struck out and she had failed to rectify the situation.‘Even as a young and comparatively inexperienced solicitor working in the no doubt pressured environment of the real estate litigation team of a major law firm, she must have realised that doing that was wrong. If she did not appreciate it was wrong you could legitimately expect some explanation to have been forthcoming at some stage.’Holloway, from Sheffield, was struck off the roll of solicitors and ordered to pay £5,900 costs. She has 21 days to appeal. A young solicitor at an international firm was today struck off at the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal for fabricating court documents to cover up the fact that a case had been struck out at the county court.While an associate solicitor in the real estate litigation team at DLA Piper, Laura Catherine Holloway created two letters and a reinstatement application after failing to tell her firm or the client that the claim had been halted due to an unpaid fee.Today’s tribunal heard that Holloway, 28, had been called into a meeting at the firm’s Sheffield office in October 2013 with her supervising solicitor and an HR director, following a contact from the client.She assured them the application to reinstate the case was made, with letters sent to Croydon County Court (pictured). After a 15-minute break to locate the documents, she presented them at the meeting.But a subsequent internal investigation found the court had received no such documents. Holloway admitted at her next disciplinary hearing she had ‘reproduced’ the letters and application. She admitted to her bosses that she had been dishonest but said there were mitigating factors.She was dismissed immediately and her subsequent appeal failed. The case was then referred to the Solicitors Regulation Authority.last_img read more

Andrew Luck makes the decision of his life, for his life

Priyanka Chopra Jonas joining Amazon’s spy series ‘Citadel’ But Luck is at peace with himself, and in the end that is all that really matters.“All I feel is love for this game and love for my teammates,” he said. “It’s the greatest game in the world.”Parting words from a player smart enough to know when his time was up.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck speaks during a news conference following the team’s NFL preseason football game against the Chicago Bears, Saturday, Aug. 24, 2019, in Indianapolis. The oft-injured star is retiring at age 29. (AP Photo/AJ Mast)The timing was bad, but even worse was the reaction of the fans who took it upon themselves to boo Andrew Luck the last time he walked off a football field in an Indianapolis Colts uniform.He made the only decision he could for his health and happiness. They responded by robbing him of what he so richly deserved for putting his body on the line for the Colts — one final moment to savor the game he still loves despite all the pain it has cost him.ADVERTISEMENT 2019 US Open: Williams-Osaka reverberations felt a year later “I’d be lying if I didn’t say I heard the reaction,” Luck said after it was all finally over for good Saturday night in Indianapolis. “Yeah, it hurt. I’ll be honest, it hurt.”Fans will be fans, of course, especially after a night spent drinking their way through yet another miserable preseason game. To be fair, the alcohol kicked in long before word started circulating at Lucas Oil Stadium that the Colts quarterback of the future was now the quarterback of the past and the realization began to sink in that there would be no Super Bowl this season.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSAllen Durham chews out Meralco: Everybody played like sh*tSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSThirdy Ravena gets‍‍‍ offers from Asia, Australian ball clubsOne moment Luck was on the sideline chatting and joking with teammates. The next he was trying to avoid choking up as he stood before reporters to officially tell the football world he was done.Done with taking vicious hits that rattled his bones and shook his brain. Done with trying to come back from the injuries that kept coming faster than any opposing linebacker. WATCH: Robredo repacks relief goods with ‘mocha’ behind her Mandatory evacuation enforced in Lemery Dutch YouTube star Nikkie de Jager says she is transgender “I know I am unable to put my heart and soul into this position,” Luck said. “It’s sad, but I also have a lot of clarity in this.”Luck leaves without the Hall of Fame career he was on the path toward. He leaves without the Super Bowl title Colts fans thought their team had a good shot at this year.But he leaves with a chance to heal before grandchildren are sitting on his knee. He leaves with money in his pocket, his brain still intact and with fond memories of his teammates and time on the field.He is newly married, with his first child on the way. Unable to play this preseason because of injuries, he had a lot of time to reflect on his life and concluded his life would be worse if he played on.Boo if you want, but who can really blame him for that?Luck’s absence will hurt in Indianapolis, of course. He was drafted to replace the great Peyton Manning and did so admirably, leading the Colts to the playoffs four of his six years, including the conference championship game in 2014, and an overall record of 61-41.But football is nothing if not a cruel game, as anyone who has played it knows. There’s always an injury waiting to happen, and another player waiting for his chance.“There’s a saying in football that everyone knows and everybody lives by,” Colts coach Frank Reich said. “It’s next man up and even though this situation is unique, no one is exempt.”No, fans shouldn’t have booed Luck. They do, however, have a right to be gloomy over a season that now seems lost before it has even begun.They needed Luck this year more than he needed football.

It’s taken my joy of this game away.”If it was shocking, it was only because it doesn’t happen more often. Tom Brady may be playing in his 40s, seemingly impervious to injury, but the sad reality of the NFL is that it’s a brutal game that plays no favorites.Barry Sanders understood that toll, walking away while still on top. So did Jim Brown in a different time, before the cost of football on a player had been fully explored. Even Rob Gronkowski got out after seeming to realize that his body couldnt take the constant pounding for another season.Yes, Luck might have walked away from a ring or two, and he’s OK with that. He might have made a few hundred million more dollars had he continued playing, and he’s OK with that, too.The price he was paying was simply too much. At the age of 29, the Stanford product was smart enough to know he was done.ADVERTISEMENT Malakanyang bilib sa Phivolcs | Chona Yu PLAY LIST 03:05Malakanyang bilib sa Phivolcs | Chona Yu01:26Homes destroyed after Taal Volcano eruption02:48ABS-CBN franchise has ‘natural deadline,’ no need for quo warranto — Gatchalian03:06Tahimik, Mapanganib | Jong Manlapaz00:49Sweet!
