for her mental health:

    English actress Daisy Ridley said she is not returning to social media for her mental health, citing statistics that link social media to anxiety, which she says is “terrifying.” “I have managed to separate my personal life well from my professional life, partly probably because I’m not on social media,” the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker actress told the Spanish magazine S Moda. “The statistics that link them [social media sites] to anxiety are terrifying. I have friends completely addicted to their phone who have suffered with this problem,” she said, admitting that she sometimes considers logging back on but has refrained. “I don’t want to go back, but sometimes I think about it. But the truth is that no, I won’t be returning,” she continued.

    After years of frustration with a criminal justice system that seemed to favor incarceration over treatment of mentally ill defendants, Mark Gale said he found an ally in Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey. Gale, whose son suffers from schizophrenia and had been arrested at least twice in the 2000s, says Lacey deserves credit for helping to conceive many of the programs that offer services to mentally ill defendants in L.A. County today. A task force convened by Lacey led the Board of Supervisors to pump $120 million into housing and resources for the mentally ill, part of a broader attempt to divert such defendants from the jail system that includes the creation of a countywide Office of Diversion & Re-Entry. The district attorney’s office under Lacey has also launched or broadened a number of alternative sentencing courts that have benefited mentally ill defendants and trained thousands of...

    Monica Lewinsky has revealed that a group of armed men tried to carjack her in 2011, sending her into an emotional crisis that required years of therapy.   Lewinsky, who became a household name in the 90s after her affair with Bill Clinton almost cost him his presidency, opened up about the traumatic experience in a personal essay for Vanity Fair on Thursday. Nine years later, the 47-year-old said she's come to see The Gun Incident, as she calls it, as a metaphor for the coronavirus pandemic because Americans have spent months 'threatened with death and disruption'.  Lewinsky said that she never would have made it through that dark period in her life without counseling - and she doesn't believe that people will make it through the current health crisis without access to help as well.   She is now calling for the federal government to establish a 'mental health czar' on the...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Almost exactly 20 years before an Minneapolis police officer knelt on George Floyd’s neck, a tragedy involving the same department led to a similar tone of outrage from the communities it affected.
