I read an article recently by one of my favourite writers, Brian Bethune. He talked about the importance of friendship.

I believe, at least in the last 20 years, therapists have been asking themselves a lot about just how much, and to what degree we support the growing trend to question whether "to medicate or not to medicate."

At the turn of the century (2000), one in 10 American women was taking antidepressants. Six percent of children who saw a doctor were prescribed an antidepressant.

Professionally, I have been dealing with many more angry people recently, so here is a bit on anger.

Anger

-Of those people who suffered the greatest damage in childhood, most    were harmed by repeated exposure to anger. Majority of chronically angry people were also damaged by anger as children.

-People struggling with chronic anger suffer long-term consequences involving work and personal relationships. They tend to feel more alone, more disappointed by life, and less nourished by their relationships.

Depression

     Everyone feels down at one time or another. Loss of a loved one, a poor
career choice, or a failed relationship – all can invite a person to feel down.
Grief and sadness are normal reactions to life's stressful invitations.
However time heals and we return to normal.
