CAN WE FORESEE THE NEXT AURORA?


Politicians on both sides express helplessness about avoiding the next
"Colorado." If there is one thing we've learned, regardless of
opinions on law enforcement, nothing is as effective as an educated citizenry. Whether it's AIDS prevention, homeland security, financial whistle-blowing,
teen pregnancy, or neighborhood crime patrols. All of these were
reduced by massive public education campaigns and by educated
journalists.  The same could be said of detecting disturbed potentially
violent offenders. The public's understanding of mental illness, as
well as professionals sorry ability to communicate it, is in the stone
age. In the golden age of the internet, patients often know more than
their doctors.  Not so with mental health.  There are many reasons for
this beyond the scope of this post.  Better public education could have
helped most mentally I'll people to self diagnose and seek help before
it affected the public.  Education could have tipped off a number of
the public to those who fell through thecracks of our mental health
system and prevented the terrible tragedies in Aurora, Columbine,
Arizona, Virginia, and elsewhere.

COLD FEET FOR SUMMER WEDDINGS COULD BE OCD: Part 2
On the flip side, many other ROCD sufferers doubt their own love for their
partner. They set up tests of their attraction and find endless minutiae wrong
with their partner. Some wonder if they are leading their partner on, and feel
guilty they will eventually hurt or cheat on them. They break up repeatedly only
to reunite a few days later.
