"Between a stimulus and response, there is a space. 

In that space is our power to choose our response. 

In our response lie our growth and our freedom."

As U.S. suicides rates rise, Hispanics show relative immunity

NBC News

Maria Fabrizio

In California, the suicide rate for whites was 19 per 100,000 people in 2016, and the rate for Hispanics was 5.5 per 100,000, according to the state Department of Public Health. (Hispanics can be of any race.) The overall suicide rate in California in 2016 was 10.9 per 100,000.

Across the country, suicides have increased nearly 30 percent since the turn of the century.

Experts attribute the relatively low suicide rate among Latinos to the culture’s strong family and community support systems, which appear to bolster emotional resilience.

Using a Transgender Person's Name Can Decrease Their Risk of Depression and Suicide

TeenVogue

De Elizabeth

A new study from The University of Texas at Austin has shed light on the importance of name usage for transgender youth. The study, which was published in the Journal of Adolescent Health in preparation for the annual Transgender Day of Visibility, concluded that when young transgender people are able to use their names in areas of everyday life, their risk of suicide and depression decreases.

Study author Stephen T. Russell further explained his findings. "Many kids who are transgender have chosen a name that is different than the one that they were given at birth," he told UT News. "We showed that the more contexts or settings where they were able to use their...name, the stronger their mental health was." (It’s important to note that just as someone’s pronouns may not be the ones ascribed to most people via a gender binary, a person’s name isn’t preferred; it just is.)

Racial Discrimination Can Take A Heavy Toll on Latino and Asian Teens

Psych Central

Traci Pedersen

Latino and Asian adolescents who face racial or ethnic discrimination are more likely to experience depression, poor self-esteem, lower academic achievement, substance use and risky sexual behavior, according to a new meta-analysis published in the journal American Psychologist.

“The consistent relations we identified are of particular concern, given the long-term linkages between depression, anxiety, substance use, aggression, hostility, and poor academic performance and engagement with an individual’s risk of illness or early death,” said Benner, who is an associate professor of human development and family sciences and a faculty research associate at the Population Research Center at The University of Texas at Austin.

"Is there anything about another human being that deserves respect or right of place? Or are they all; a waste of the creator's precious time and divine genius?  In which case; Iam the only one who deserves to be here, and who deserves to live in peace and self-respect. The  honest answers to these questions should heal my self-aggrandizing delusions, preserve a healthy sense of reality testing, guide my own behavior towards others, and above all; help me see the goodness in the six billion other temporary inhabitants of the earth; other than myself."   Samuel Inimbom Samuel MD
