A mental breakdown occurs when there is so much emotional and physical stress than the body can handle. A mental breakdown shows signs of undiagnosed mental health; such as depression; anxiety, bipolar, PTSD and more. A person experiencing a mental break down is not able to function day to day as before. Some of the signs include but not limited to: losing excessive amount of weight, loss of interest in activities they usually enjoy, suicidal thoughts, feeling hopeless/worthless and more. In severe cases, someone can experience hallucinations, paranoia and mood swings. Each of these cases suggest disorders such as schizophrenia, psychosis and bipolar( personality disorder) to name a few. The best remedy for someone expierencing these symptoms is therapy. You can call 311 to get assistance for a friend or family member and figure out what are the best steps to take. Another option for people is medication to help them regulate the symptoms; everyone may not need to go this route. Make sure you continue to offer support and remind them they are not alone!
“Twenty-six people have now died from #Ebola in #Congo, as the deadly outbreak reaches the city.
The #government of the Democratic Republic of Congo has increased funding to fight the outbreak, and #doctors are working on an experimental #vaccine, AP reports. The Congo President’s Cabinet endorsed the policy of giving free health care to those in affected areas.
While the #WorldHealthOrganization has not declared a global health emergency in response to the outbreak, the threat level is “very high,” and nine countries near Congo are “at high risk of spread.” Three of the 45 documented cases of Ebola infection were in #healthcareworkers. Congo has contained outbreaks of Ebola before, but those were in #rural areas. This recent outbreak has twice reached the city of #Kinshasa, which has 10 million people. Notably, one infamous Ebola outbreak in #WestAfrica between 2014 and 2016 caused 11,325 deaths.
Luckily, a vaccine may help. In response to that deadly outbreak, a Canadian research lab developed a preventative vaccine, currently in an experimental phase. However, early tests on thousands of people showed promising, as no one in a vaccinated group contracted the disease after 10 days, Fortune reports. Sixteen of those in the control group did.
While there isn’t yet certain, conclusive evidence that the vaccine is effective and safe, the World Health Organization has said that the vaccine is being delivered to the capital city, and that it’s promising. In a press statement, the WHO said there should be no restrictions on #internationaltrade or #travel at this time, but there should be increased security, deployment of mobile labs, and other interventions. They say that with a vigorous response, there is hope for controlling this outbreak.” #africa#bksamirah#hiphop#cardib#socialjusticeactivist

Let’s have the unspoken conversation regarding these school shootings. Parents across the nation should be demanding metal detectors to immediately discourage many students from bringing any weapon into school. Metal detectors do not eliminate the threat of there ever being a weapon in school but they help to bring the chances down AND also help to contain the area a weapon could possibly be at in school if security properly checks each and every student. I honestly believe that the reason most white parents and towns aren’t calling for the metal detectors is because it reminds them of the criminalization of #youth and #theschooltoprisonpipeline they have no problem witnessing #children of color funneled daily throughout the nation. Don’t get me started this morning on #guncontrol because many won’t like it. Don’t tell my community shit about gun control when the one who has used the gun to obtain #land#power and #global#wealth is the European white man who while even here on stolen land in America is still the main reason behind almost every crime in the FBI stats. When older white folks try to engage me with bs conversation on “black on black crime” aka #crimesofproximity I love to flip it back on them by simply saying ok wonderful now let’s chat about the sins of your grandfather. It works like a charm each and every time. #ididntcometoplay - @bksamirah #dontpolicemyspeech#armybrat#consultant#minister#whitesupremacy#justice#criminaljustice#hiphop#educators#wheresthelie#bksamirah#socialjusticeactivist#2ndamendment
