Collaborative story made in the Memory workshop at CIS with the dice from story cubes, is a game to discover with family or friends. On each turn one player becomes a Narrator. The dice are rolled, and then create a story that begins with "Once upon a time ...", interesting truth?, well there goes the story:

“Fernando was walking through the field, when he suddenly saw an arrow and was very surprised, he followed the arrow and saw some footprints leading to a large cave, when i get to the cave, He took out his wand and suddenly I saw that everyone was sad and I was sad too.

But the sadness soon passed us because we saw a honeycomb and we were able to take some honey and eat it together and keeping an eye on the bees, So I took the cane and hit it harder.

Suddenly in the cave we saw an L-shaped ray of light and from which we saw a huge lake. Suddenly, on the shore of the lake, we took some rods that were abandoned and we began to fish all the fish that were in that lake. Fernando stuck a splinter in the cane and we had to use a magnifying glass to get it out. But since we couldn't get it out, we had to go to the hospital to have the splinter removed. The hospital was abandoned and only one light bulb in one of the rooms worked. Then I saw a star and that star gave light. But the light was not enough and I had to use a wand of stars with which everything was illuminated.

As we were all very overwhelmed at the hospital, we went outside to see trees, then lightning struck the hospital. Seeing this, we realized that we are in a long meadow at midnight where we only had the company of sheep. Seeing the sheep from afar, we approach them and on the ground near the fence, I found a compass that took us to the farthest place in the field and there was a demon that wanted to eat the sheep, they were eating apples while the lightning struck, with the flashes as lights, We woke up and realized that it had all been a dream and we talked to each other and we thought it was a very beautiful dream.”

Suicide is a major public health; World Health Organization (WHO) notes that nearly one million people die each year from this cause in the world, with a mortality rate 16 For each 100.000, representing a death every 40 second, more of 800.000 people annually in the world and in Spain the figure is 10 people a day. Thus, It is necessary suicide prevention plan have sufficient resources to deal with cases of people with suicidal behavior, their families and those people suicide survivors.

Considering the prevention of suicidal behavior within the model of classical preventive health care from public health, all prevention plan suicidal behavior should include the integration of primary prevention for general population, secondary prevention for suicidal risk groups and tertiary prevention to people who have already submitted suicidal behavior. So they are elements that must appear undoubtedly within the shares to develop and carry out.

On these bases, and analyzing the various existing plans seems essential to take into account a number of common elements and key to all of them, when developing a prevention plan. So we can quote:

  • Promoting mental health.
  • Specific training in mental health stakeholders.
  • Programs for vulnerable groups.
  • Programs targeting high-risk groups.
  • Restricting access to lethal means.

It is vital to stress the need for institutional support and government support to carry out initiatives. And the weight of, and magnitude you are having suicidal behavior and benefits of prevention and intervention at all levels.

Training of health professionals and social agents for early identification, evaluation, treatment and monitoring of people at risk of suicidal behavior is an essential element, priority and all necessary prevention plan. It would therefore specific training which should appear in the field of mental health and aimed at both health professionals and non-health professionals but essential in the detection or intervention of suicidal behavior such as educators , police, firefighters…

Create a process or tracking system within the social services system, of those identified as risk population, promotes continuity of care and non-duplication of resources, as well as quality care and greater efficiency in managing the potential risks, minimizing the possibility of suicide behavior resulting accomplished.

In connection with the above idea, the creation of a case management system would be an effective tool for more successful prevention. And referral to specific resources for rehabilitation or treatment of underlying conditions that may exist. Kingdom this idea, creating resources or support services for people affected or survivors of suicidal behavior would be an essential complement to prevention, intervention and postvention of suicidal behavior.

Promote public awareness regarding welfare issues and mental health. that is to say, raising general awareness of the impact, magnitude and consequences of suicidal behavior tackling stress management and effective management of crisis situations. It would be an element that not only reduce the stigma associated, it would facilitate the creation of protocols in different areas aimed at reducing suicide rates.

On the other hand, restrict access to lethal means can not be ignored in any plan, since it is an element of direct intervention in the results. This aspect referring to control toxic, medicines, weapons ... the design of public works to prevent use as lethal means. It has been found that this measure is one of the fastest and most obvious to reduce suicide rates.

Another aspect that should influence the prevention plans suicidal behavior passes to attend the media and treatment of suicidal behavior is done in the same.

Finally note the ideas on the need for investigation as a key and beneficial element that should pick up any plan for the prevention of suicidal behavior. Since the results of research on aspects of epidemiology, Risk and protective factors, neurobiology of suicidal behavior, effective strategies and preventive actions, cultural differences…, It will depend not only targeting prevention plans but the results of these will ensure greater success in reducing suicide rates.

Because suicide is preventable.

If you need help do not hesitate to call 112, phone against suicide.

Continue our 8 Mental Health Challenges, this October, Day Month Mental Health, in which this year's theme on which awareness is suicide attempts.

The suicide, like any manifestation of violence, It is not exclusive of mental illness. Unlike, are rather frequent acts among people who do not have recognized any mental illness.

Suicide is a very important health issue. It is estimated that there are around one million suicides a year worldwide and that for every completed suicide there are between 15 a 20 unconsummated suicides, which would result from 15 Y 20 million annual suicide attempts. These frightening figures give us an idea of ​​the importance of this phenomenon worldwide.

In all countries of the world suicide it is among the top ten causes of death. In countries where it is most prevalent USA, Canada, Japan, Northern and Eastern Europe is around 11,6 suicides per 100.000 inhabitants and Latin America is the 5,6 per hundred thousand inhabitants.

Men commit suicide three times more than women, but they make three times more tentative than men. The risk of suicide increases with age but in absolute numbers there are more among young.

We could say that risk groups are adolescence, old people, frail or vital periods of crisis, Persons under extreme demand situations, people with mental illness and between people with depression, schizophrenia and people who consume toxic substances. But nevertheless, Suicide is not an act of mental illness but may be present in any person.

Suicide is a radical and disproportionately to escape when these difficulties are experienced with despair and incapacitation or are experienced when generating an intolerable amount of distress, from abroad or of the person. One way or another, It is always present the other (another person), for more individual and loner who present.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder It is one of the psychological disorders that can more hear, but, But nevertheless, there is a huge lack of knowledge, not only about what is, but we myths around it.

On the one hand, we will explain in broad terms consisting. OCD patient has a number of negative thoughts and repetitive They are causing huge discomfort to the patient, These thoughts may focus on different topics, Cleaning, death, sex, They can also be thoughts about yourself or people around us.

On the other hand, the patient may have a series of compulsions, not all patients have. These compulsions have as its theme the same obsessions, for example, If obsessive thinking is cleaning, compulsion may consist handwashing 10 times in a row or take some sort of disinfectant often. Another example may be obsessive thinking security, whose compulsion may be to see if we closed the door 8 Sometimes before we left home. Not only is there a compulsion, but the person may have different rituals you need to do to be quiet.

These compulsions exist as a way for the person to relax and keep away your thoughts.

The fact that as we said, there is much ignorance about the subject, makes people have wrong about being disease and patients suffer ideas.

One of the most widespread myths is that people with hobbies are People with OCD or sure they will suffer in the future.

The truth is that this is not true, There are many people who have certain hobbies or habits, but that's not a compulsive disorder and therefore not have to be treated or removed.

It is also important to bear in mind that people who have these disorders suffer, They are aware that they have a major problem and that their obsessions or compulsions are not "normal" and therefore see the need to end them.

There are also many people who think that there is no treatment, but it is not like that, we currently have very effective treatments both psychological and pharmacological. Best in most cases is to combine both treatments.

What is really important OCD patients, It is to feel understood by their loved ones, because sometimes they feel rejection or the weirdo in your family or group of friends believe.

If you have a relative or friend with OCD you should try to put in place, and it is essential to have adequate information about the disorder and especially to treat the issue naturally, that way you will be his greatest support

In this article we are going to make an introduction to bipolar disorder, that we can basically be defined as a severe mental disorder that requires psychological treatment and drug.

This disorder involves changes in mood, sudden and severe changes.

Let's consider two poles, one of them would the Depression and the other mania, as well, the person would go from one pole to another in a very short period of time.

When the person is in the depressive phase, It is sad, disheartened, not wanting to do anything and with very negative thoughts, whereas when the person is in the manic phase, feel a huge euphoria, overflowing joy and think they are, literally, capable of anything, which is extremely dangerous for them, as outstanding examples say that manic phase the person can spend all your money, having sex with strangers uncontrollably or make sudden employment decisions.

Between cycles the person has a mood considered normal.

This disorder begins to habitually late adolescence or early adulthood and lifelong, although today's treatments help the person get to not having those changes so abrupt and to have a normal life.

As for the causes of this disorder, the truth is that nothing is clear, the different specialists give different versions, but the truth, It is that it could be genetic causes an abnormal structure or brain function, but as we say there is nothing conclusive.

It is essential that we make it clear that bipolar disorder has nothing to do with a split personality, because unfortunately the enormous ignorance makes people feel that there is the same, but there is nothing further from reality, since the person does not change his personality but his mood.

As with all patients psychological illnesses, It is essential to the support of family and friends, support that not only helps them feel better, understood and respected, but also if we have the necessary information we can help with therapy.
