National Suicide Prevention Week is this week and PRG is working with mental health professionals to help provide support and combat the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. You heard me, the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. I don’t know about you but I find that statistic staggering. Mental health professionals such as psychiatrists, psychologists, and even counselors dedicate their lives to helping individuals cope with mental health issues i.e., depression and anxiety. So why are so many people committing suicide? Is it the lack of accessibility to health care providers? Is it the fact that mental health issues can be a taboo topic in today’s society?
Many parents look forward to welcoming a new baby into their lives. But for the many mothers who suffer the effects of Post-Partum Depression, or PPD, that process can be less than easy. Physicians Research Group (PRG) hopes that a new clinical trial will make things easier for future mothers.
Post-Partum Depression symptoms include, but are not limited to, impaired sleep and appetite, profound irritability, and difficulty bonding with baby. Severity of symptoms varies amongst PPD sufferers. The condition usually commences just before or after the birth of a child, and can improve within a few months when treated properly.
Currently, treatment for PPD patients includes counselling, antidepressants and hormone therapies. Researchers are working hard to find a single therapy that can help everyone who is experiencing moderate to severe effects of PPD.
If you suffer from rosacea, you have something in common with the late Princess Diana, Bill Clinton, and over 16 million other Americans.
Rosacea is a common skin condition that creates redness in the face and may produce small, red bumps. It mainly occurs in middle-aged women with fair skin, but as we see with Bill Clinton, it can occur in anyone. Rosacea can worsen over time, and signs and symptoms may flare up for weeks to months before subsiding.
