Overcoming the Stigma of Depression Lets Talk

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#Depressionletstalk Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppPort of Spain, April 7, 2017 – Trinidad and Tobago – Depression, one of the leading causes of disability, affects nearly 50 million people in Latin America and the Caribbean.  This disease is treatable, yet six out of every ten people who have depression do not seek or do not receive the treatment they need.   “This disease is a major public health problem that affects us all.  It does not discriminate.  It impacts people of all ages, from all walks of life,” stated Executive Director, CARPHA, Dr. C. James Hospedales in observance of World Health Day.   The CARPHA Director went on to say “despite being so common and because of the stigma attached, people affected may hide it, not seek treatment or not talk about it.”“Depression: let’s talk.” is the theme chosen for this year for World Health Day.  It calls attention to this serious public health concern and advocates for recognising and addressing the disease.  The goal is for more people with depression, everywhere in the world, to both seek and get help.Strong links between depression and other non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and obesity have been identified. Mental and neurological disorders in the elderly, such as Alzheimer’s disease, other dementias, and depression, contribute to the burden of NCDs.  Mental disorders can also contribute to unintentional and intentional injury.   Patients who are depressed are less likely to take their medicines, and persons with chronic NCDs and disability are more likely to be depressed.Dr. Hospedales said “Depression is an important risk factor for suicide, which claims the lives of many Caribbean people, including our young ones every year.  There are effective strategies and treatments for preventing depression, and ways to alleviate the suffering it causes. This includes talking therapies or antidepressant medication or a combination of both. Addressing stigma and discrimination are also important strategies in programs for mental health and depression.”Health professionals are reminded of their duty of care to all persons, whether they have physical and/or mental issues.  To persons who may be experiencing depression, remember with the right help you can get better.  CARPHA urges you to talk with someone you trust about your feelings or seek professional help.World Health Day, celebrated on 7 April every year to mark the anniversary of the founding of the World Health Organization (WHO), provides a unique opportunity to mobilize action around a specific health topic of concern to people all over the world.Press Release: CARPHA#Depressionletstalklast_img read more

Review Roma – Real Madrid

first_imgCengiz Under’s miss at the end of one and Roma’s brutal defensive mistake at the beginning of the other half were the defining moments in Real Madrid’s 2-0 win in Rome.Roma starting lineup: Robin Olsen, Alessandro Florenzi, Kostas Manolas, Federico Fazio, Aleksandar Kolarov, Steven N’Zonzi, Bryan Cristante, Nicolo Zaniolo, Cengiz Under, Stephan El Shaarawy, Patrick Schick Real Madrid starting lineup: Thibaut Courtois, Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Dani Carvajal, Marcos Llorente, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Lucas Vazquez, Karim BenzemaThe first 20 minutes of the match were a tactical battle in which neither team was able to distance itself from the opponent and force it into its own half for a prolonged period of time. In the 22nd minute, Stephan El Shaarawy, who complained of an injury moments earlier, was fouled by Luka Modric. The Italian forward couldn’t continue, so Eusebio Di Francesco was forced to make his first change, which was the young Dutchman Justin Kluivert. The home team did get some pressure after the 30th minute, when a couple of Cengiz Under corner kicks ended in a triple scoring opportunity. Patrick Schick had the best of them, while Aleksandar Kolarov’s long-range effort whiskered by the post.Then, in stoppage time, we witnessed one of the misses of the season. Dani Carvajal played an unnecessary backheel pass near the corner flag and fooled his teammate Raphael Varane. The ball came to Schick, who immediately crossed it to a wide open Cengiz Under. All the Turkish international had to do was tap the ball into the net from two meters out, yet he somehow managed to send it over the bar. Disbelief enveloped the stadium. What a miss! The half-time score remained 0-0.An awful mistake led to Real Madrid’s opening goal at the beginning of the second period. Robin Olsen’s poor kick put Fazio in an uncomfortable position, but that doesn’t justify his gift to Gareth Bale. The Welshman didn’t hesitate, setting himself up and punishing Roma’s defense.⚽️ Gareth Bale’s record in this competition :2⃣0⃣ GOALS5⃣8⃣ GAMES#UCL pic.twitter.com/4psWGRSz3aPlayers who made it public that they weren’t happy in their club Jozef Fabian – September 12, 2019 Football is about so much more than what happens on the pitch.— UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) November 27, 2018A lightning quick counter attack by Real Madrid nearly led to a second goal just a couple of minutes later. Gareth Bale sprinted towards goal, but his weak attempt was easily saved by Olsen. In the 59th minute, Los Blancos made it 2-0 through Lucas Vazquez. Karim Benzema’s header was the one that set him up, while Gareth Bale was the one who sent the initial cross.Full time! AS Roma 0-2 Real Madrid. Goals by Bale and Lucas Vazquez! Ending first place in the group. Onto the next round in The Champions League! #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/HNb2EIrL54— Rey (@ReyLaMadrid) November 27, 2018The goals definitely shook Roma, who went all-in and left acres of space behind for counter attacks. Di Francesco’s second substitution was Ante Coric for Steven N’Zonzi. A visibly exhausted Nicolo Zanioli departed the pitch in the 69th minute, making way for Rick Karsdorp. Roma wanted to take the game to Real Madrid, but simply couldn’t. The goals deflated the Italians, who struggled to maintain control of the ball. Later on, Solari made his first substitutions, replacing Benzema with Mariano Diaz and Modric with Federico Valverde. The clock was ticking away, as Giallorossi were unable to create scoring opportunities. Eventually, it was all over. It might not have been pretty, it might not have been deserved either, but Real Madrid got the victory and secured first place in Group G, at least for the time being.last_img read more
