Many primate species, including macaques and baboons, form strong, long-lasting social bonds with particular individuals that resemble human friendship. These relationships appear to benefit both males and females: they are associated with higher reproductive success and even longer life.

David Kaczynski’s story would make a very good contemporary realist novel. It has all the important elements: complex family dynamics, suicide, mental illness, famous political violence, and a terrible choice.

Children with mental health issues need various kinds of help to heal — counseling, medication, sometimes hospitalization. One proven method of help is play therapy, which lets kids express their troubles in nonverbal ways. The young patients at the nonprofit Clarity Child Guidance Center just got a big assist in that arena.
 
 
Amarillo Globe-News
February 25, 2016
 
A sample resolution from the Texas Department of State Health Services states recess, as an unstructured play time where children have choices, should not replace PE.

The Cook County Jail, one of the nation’s most crowded, may get relief later this year with the opening of a 24-hour triage center where police can take people experiencing psychiatric or substance-abuse crises.

OPINIONS
 
Austin American-Statesman
February 26, 2016
 
This week is National Eating Disorder Week, and it’s a good time to remember the staggering statistics. Almost 30 million people in the United States suffer from an eating disorder — and eating disorders have higher mortality rates than any other mental illness.
 
 
Dallas Morning News
February 25, 2016
 
I, personally, am not comfortable with the idea that colleagues or students might be walking around “locked and loaded,” whether they are disgruntled and seeking redress or they are on the lookout for potential bad guys.

Huffington Post

Everyone goes through moments of fear, but for those with post-traumatic stress disorder, terror has a way of taking on a life of its own.
 
 
Scientific American
