As your children age into adults, their health insurance coverage will eventually run out

Opinion | Kids’ Mental Health Is a ‘National Emergency.’ Therapists Are in Short Supply.

“Though it is not the same as good psychotherapy, don’t underestimate the power of the basics,” she told me. “Making sure your young person is getting enough sleep, they’re getting enough physical activity, they’re eating a balanced diet. If possible, keep them busy with purposeful activities. These things go further than we sometimes expect.”

There are resources you can use at home, books and online programs, that can help your family. The online resources that come most recommended are often rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)which “usually involves efforts to change thinking patterns,” according to the APA Patricia Frazier, a distinguished professor of psychology at the University of Minnesota, has, along with colleagues, studied the effects of internet-delivered CBT programs (ICBT) on university students and found that they were “feasible, acceptable and effective.”

From healthy eating to ayahuasca trips: do Amazonian tribes have lessons for the West?

Deep in the Peruvian and Brazilian Amazon there are indigenous communities who, research suggests, suffer far lower rates of the diseases that are the biggest killers in the West. Dementia and heart disease occur much less frequently – with a University of Southern California study released earlier this year finding the lowest rates of dementia in the world.

It is this supposed anomaly, and the conclusions he has drawn from it, which form part of a new book, The Wisdom Wheel, published by Dr Alberto Villoldo, an anthropologist who specializes in tribal communities around the world.

More specifically, Dr Villoldo has spent 25 years researching societies where the primary medical caretaker is a shaman – and he believes Western society has much to learn about good health from better understanding the mystic traditions these communities follow.

“As soon as the Amazonian peoples began to eat like us, live like

King County, Seattle form coalition to boost mental health facilities and workforce

The Mental Health Project is a Seattle Times initiative focused on covering mental and behavioral health issues. It is funded by Ballmer Group, a national organization focused on economic mobility for children and families. The Seattle Times maintains editorial control over work produced by this team.

King County has lost nearly a third of its residential mental health beds since 2018, and residents wait an average of 44 days for such treatment, county and city officials announced Thursday.

The data points to the severely under-resourced state of the county’s behavioral health system. It was announced as part of the formation of a new coalition of King County and Seattle government leaders, state representatives and health care workers who plan to rebuild and add more resources to the region’s depleted mental health workforce.

America could have a vitamin D supplement problem

As a supplement, vitamin D has been a common staple on drugstore shelves for years — and its popularity is only growing.

In the US, its market value is projected to hit $1.3 billion by 2025. Studies show a large jump in vitamin D deficiency diagnoses over the past two decades, and the over-the-counter supplement claims to bolster your bone health, muscle function and immune system.

The supplement took on new life last year, when people started taking vitamin D pills as a preventive measure against Covid. Today, medical experts generally agree: Vitamin D doesn’t prevent you from getting the virus. And while scientists are still trying to determine if it can lessen the severity of infections, due to its immune-bolstering benefits, it’s certainly no replacement for getting vaccinated.

But Covid concerns aside, doctors have mixed opinions on the supplement. Some say that when taken in moderation, it’s a

Health care regulatory board faces pivotal budget season with no leader

With the start of Vermont’s hospital budget season 10 days away, Gov. Phil Scott has not yet been appointed a new chair of the Green Mountain Care Board.

The five-member board regulates hospital growth in Vermont. Its outgoing chair, Kevin Mullin, often casts the deciding vote between the board’s conservative and liberal camps. Mullin’s departure could thrust the board into gridlock as health care costs continue to spiral upward.

Mullin announced his departure in April but said at the time that he would stick around for budget season should Gov. Phil Scott needs more time to pick a successor. Last month, Scott’s press secretary, Jason Maulucci, said the governor intended to appoint a new chair by the end of July.

But at Wednesday’s Green Mountain Care Board Meeting, Mullin announced he was immediately vacating the seat after the governor appointed member
