Mental health care also has a big gap where first responders and preventative care should be. It's basically either highly specialized care or 'talk to your friends'.

But support from a person trained in psychological first aid - paired with support from the community - can make a huge difference in whether a violent event becomes a trauma.

And damn, our friends learned chemistry and algebra in school but not 'mental health 101'. Which is ridiculous.

There are some amazing things out there like the Icarus Project (theicarusproject.net) but so much more is needed and possible.

You can't become a therapist by following a workshop. But you can learn a specific skill (example: support during a panic attack) in a day, and you can learn basic psychological first aid in maybe a week.
We should all have those skills.

Wow, i just heard this really wild conspiracy thing about The Beatles.

Did you know that apparently if you play beatles songs in reverse, that they still sound like shit?

Followed up with the humming of the classic "Wheels on the Bus," what a rousing performance
