It seems like a lie, but since 12 months, We keep you informed of all our activities and we show our world through social networks. At the same as last year, It is 26 October, We participate in the days of coexistence Inclusiva council, the Fourth Edition, organized by Diputación de Cáceres.

This time we could meet Moraleja, our student interns Sara Mostazo He tells us that: "They had come to the very special welcome and guide through laughter which took us to the area of ​​stands and activities. Although the stands were close together associations, It was an opportunity that allowed us to become better acquainted with other associations ".

Sara M. It was the first time he went with us / as, to like some of the people of our association, for example Pilar Cáceres, Psychologist Occupational Rehabilitation Center (CRL), Who thinks of this experience: "I have only good words of thanks to the organizers. We enjoyed a wonderful day where we could live with more people and share activities, at the same time create new ties. "Certainly for us Inclusiva Council is an event of Coexistence, fun and bonding.

A Coexistence Between more of 500 people from different parts of the province Cáceres, but also among all those who participated from Mental Health FEAFES Cáceres. Because as he explains Gloria Benitez, management team and voluntary: "This experience allows us, especially, meet outside the workplace, enjoy doing activities with them and see how they operate outside their usual environment. Is especially important relationships with other associations, exchanging ideas and sharing experiences, all wonderful, because when you work in the social world the heart makes you a little bigger. "

On the other hand, fun goes hand set of different sports activities mainly (human football, archery ...) but most she liked Juani, Julia and Juanma people ranging from the Social Integration Center (CIS), all agreeing that the best moment of all was the charanga, where they enjoyed dancing and singing. This year wanted to be an active part of this day, and after several days of organization and work of the people who make our association and professional, It was time for the Oca of emotions, in which we could play with the giant since we developed for the occasion. "We adapt the large goose, to make a board game accessible to a sporting event like this, "he tells Fernando Pérez, Occupational Therapist Center Residential Rehabilitation. "La Oca of emotions is a dynamic that we love to perform for emotional education, since we can work our emotional vocabulary and analyze situations and behaviors of each of the emotions ", Gemma explains Gómez, Social educator of the Center for Social Integration.

And the union especially among associations People with disabilities promoting cooperation and networking in the province of Cáceres. This union became more visible in the food where all participants ate together, It is one of the moments of the day most anticipated by some of our users from the residential center.
But nevertheless, Maria Sanchez, CIS instructor and CRL, He points out that we should not forget the importance of these sessions to get feedback from other associations always watching the benefit for users. But without any doubt, It was an enriching experience both personally and professionally.

When finished the day the whole group agreed we were tired because of all the emotions experienced throughout the day. In summary, and words angel Moreno, administration: "Diputación Inclusiva is an event where people of different groups meet with different capacities in a playful atmosphere and a very friendly atmosphere, in which relationships and contacts are created between the different associations and individuals.

From FEAFES-Caceres we are happy to return another year to participate in council sessions Inclusiva V.

It is known that technologies offer us advantages over our daily lives. With a single click we can have thousands of products at our disposal without leaving the site, and we can also be in frequent contact with friends and / or relatives who are far from us. But nevertheless, the problem lies both in time and in use we can make our phones and computers, for example, throughout a day. But where is the limit? At what point do we establish the use liable to abuse? Perhaps it would be advisable to start considering addiction screens as a mental disorder and set diagnostic criteria for detection and subsequent rehabilitation.

However, where we took a smaller pace of life in the house at an early age they learn to manage these devices, and where the limits of their use are fuzzy. The evolutionary development of children is already affected the brain needs to constantly interact with their environment. Deprivation of sensory stimuli can cause deficits socially, emotional and especially delay in acquiring more complex skills like language can be.

On the other hand, and making a leap into adolescence, non limiting the use of mobile It has consequences at the level of self-care (comer, sleep, etc), level of social relations, and psychological level, as is the ability of frustration. Teenagers learn to live in a world where they can make what they want and if they do not like, You can delete and start again (like a game). But real life does not work under these guidelines and we meet people who can not manage the emotions they feel when something does not go as they want.

The consequences of abuse technologies have reached such a level that in the United States opened in 2009 the first rehab, which they offer help to people who want to learn to manage the use of phones and computers. We live in a world where you can get things done very quickly and with little effort thanks, partly, technologies. But this in turn raises a question: How real is this world we have created?

…and psychiatrists, despite being a common theme in our daily work, we know. A social level is the ghost death ... do not open headers deaths in the news, or newspaper headlines… anonymous deaths on which we tiptoed, deaths without sensitizing campaigns, without discussion in political forums… where family are stigmatized and a halo of silence is created around. Fortunately something has begun to change, not only health status, but socially .., because suicide is an issue that concerns us all as a society, as a cultural group.

Until a few years ago, he looked the other way when someone in your town, in your city, in their social environment took off his life… Families were identified and became the second victim. It was time they started addressing clearly a public health problem that leaves much pain and so many collateral victims.

I will not talk about statistics, I will not give data that we all know and repeated endlessly in the media and forums mental health. I would like to raise this article from the point of view of prevention.

One suicide is already a social failure, but the reality sheds shocking figures. When someone decides to commit suicide it is because the political-social-health network has failed. Fortunately healthcare professionals, outside the environment of mental health, They are starting to become sensitized and consider talking with patients, not only clinical issues, but also emotional issues. We must address the issue of suicide with the same ease with which we talk about flu, psoriasis or heart disease.

The Suicide Observatory dismantles myths:
-"Whoever kills himself wants to kill". False. Who takes his own life just she wants to stop suffering.
-"Whoever does not say it and who says what he does". False. Many suicides are preceded by warning signs that any health or educator has the duty and obligation to detect.

In any faculty of medicine or psychology suicide is the main subject of study, It is not studied at the University, no state campaigns about, there are no specific health programs, not to educate the population, in general, and adolescents in particular, on the psychological and emotional well-being .... .. We are talking about 10 lives daily in our country!

Spain remains a prevention plan, no state or regional campaigns encompassing health areas, educational and social. Programs involving family, educators, health and social agents. Disseminate information necessary to reduce the stigma associated with suicide and the importance of psychological and emotional wellbeing. Shy programs have begun to appear in some regions, where the health sector is involved as a priority, but.. And the political?, And the social?

If in Spain suicide deaths are twice those killed in traffic accidents, Why is there no funding for such a serious public health issue? and WHO He points out as a health problem of the first order and it recommends that it should be a priority mundial.¿ Why the Ministry of Health of our country does not include a prevention-oriented program? Why Mental Health professionals think our health system should give more importance to mental illness? Why is there no specific funding in state and regional health policies for the prevention of suicide when we know that is the leading cause of unnatural death in Spain for more than 12 years, and it has increased alarmingly among the population between 15 Y 29 years?

The Depression It is not a state of sadness, It is a disease, and as such, treatable. Hopelessness experienced by patients who take their own lives is temporary, although at certain times you do not feel well. And finally note that we have a public health system in which there are professionals prepared to address suicidal ideation, restore function and patient experiencing hopelessness is ephemeral.

Many years ago, an unknown problem would come into my life to destabilize completely. I did not know what it was that happened to me, but an unknown and excessive collection of symptoms that accompany me in this, no one had sought, but I just found face to face anxiety.

It would cost me time, sweat and tears, accept. And the process would be hard not only to live with her but above all for overcoming ...

But that stage, of that struggle to overcome the duel that life had put before me, discover lessons and tools that would make me a much stronger person and conscious. I had become someone who knew much better, understood recognize known weaknesses, but also the strengths, and especially use everything was on me to get to make my life, that I have always liked to live.

In this way, after overcoming anxiety that first and complicated, I would become someone able to pursue their dreams. Some of these already knew and soon get to realize, others would create on the fly, and among them would bear a book, a manual that would have helped me recognize this problem before buzzed my life, a book which was called to anxiety, trying to help many people to recognize that everything they need to overcome anxiety, I have always had within themselves.

Time has passed, time in which to anxiety has become a reference in which many people find support and comfort, and especially some light, to this complicated disorder is anxiety.

This article will try to summarize some of the answers to the most common questions among those who suffer or have suffered anxiety, obtaining these needs through my own social networks, in which more than 50000 people together to share their own experiences and find support, comfort, and many more people who can help them understand how anxiety, and hateful symptoms, They are much more common than, all those who suffer, We can think.

we started:

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is, basically, defense system that all humans have, a mechanism that has helped the human species has survived.

It happens when, before a real danger or a life situation, our body reacts to prepare for fight or flight, actions that keep us safe or get to perform that task or action we feel indispensable to our existence.

Anxiety as a disorder, or the anxiety that my book and many other concerns, it is considered that state of anxiety in which our body remains altered considering that there is a threat that does not exist, a false alarm that is maintained over time and conditions as ordinary aspects and little dangerous as can be, go out, get a lift, or entering a crowded place.

How can recognize the anxiety and rule out other diseases?

Anxiety or rather, Anxiety Disorder, It presupposes the existence of a large set of demonstrations, so varied that they can be grouped into different groups. physical symptoms (sweating, tachycardia, hyperventilation, etc…), psychological (restlessness, sense of threat, rumination of thoughts, fear of death ...), of conduct (hypervigilance, locks, clumsiness, etc…) , social (irritability, ensimismamiento, excessive fear of conflict, etc…) and intellectual or cognitive (focus or concentration difficulties, susceptibility, etc…).

The best way I know to recognize it is to admit that there is no other disease that encompasses so many varied symptoms like those listed here and we feel, understand that the problem is intensified if we focus on your symptoms and accept that in any other pathology (or mental or physical), Fear warns us about it.

Anxiety and its symptoms will keep you alert and worried, or by trying to trick you grow your hypochondria. Many times you believe to be suffering from something else, but all this will be just another sign of the only reality: not suffer nothing but anxiety.

What types of anxiety disorders exist?

There are several types of anxiety disorders, many of which, for its difficulty (not to be confused with danger), it may be more convenient to seek professional help.

Specific phobias (to the death, disease, objects, animals, etc…) is the most common type of anxiety. There is also a generalized anxiety disorder, OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), social phobia, Panic Disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder and agoraphobia.

Do anxiolytics can eliminate anxiety?

Anxiolytics can reduce some of your symptoms and make living easier, but beware, They never solve the problem themselves.

They should be used for both prescription and dosage for consumption, and generating dependence and tolerance (the same dose increasingly less effects) and it is advisable not to leave them drastically to avoid suffering complications or panic attacks .

What would be the first step to combat?

Accept and learn to live with it.

If you do not accept we are flying blind and every step we take we will not give in the right direction, adding to both the problem and its solution.

Once accepted will touch us to take responsibility not only for ourselves but also for our improvement, and there is no better way to start our own therapy, learning to live with the symptoms of anxiety (which not disappear overnight), and trying to regulate, thereby manage how we react to all situations that cause us anxiety.

Is recommended counseling and medication?

In many cases, especially depending on the type of anxiety and time to relocate living with her, yes, fully advisable.

If we suffer from OCD, agoraphobia or panic frequent crises, It is easy to understand that our head keeps limiting or obsessive ideas that are not easy to treat or reduce, That is why in all these cases where anxiety greatly limits our life, there is no better help to seek help, making the road a much easier and enjoyable, leaving advised by people who best understand not only the disorder but also the most appropriate methods for our case.

In many of these cases, psychological therapy is often accompanied by medication, either anxiolytics to reduce some of the symptoms and panic attacks, as antidepressants very suitable for treating phobias or obsessive.

And out of one of the book's advice to anxiety What does it mean that everything I need is within me?

I think anyone who has faced and overcome an anxiety disorder, you can be with me that one of the great lessons you get out of this complicated period with anxiety, is that both therapy and the tools that really make us get out of this complicated disorder, start from within each person.

Nothing will change if you do not change, a truth that shows us that we touch any way to go, you must from our own feet.

Anxiety is one of these paths, a disorder that leaves no room for a different answer to our own action. Nothing will inflate to pills or postpone the need for change, so the sooner we get to work much sooner overcome the problem and get better live with the problem.

And during that personal work that will get get a better version of ourselves, we learn to live with these horrible symptoms that accompany us on the road, making seek physical and mental improvement, that not only make us feel physically stronger, but especially mentally, changing the way we see the problem, and thus beginning to see some light to this darkness.

As I never tire of repeating both the book and to anyone seeking support or advice to combat anxiety. There will come a time when you must decide responsibility for your life and your happiness, a moment that can start right now, why smiles and begins to feel the change, It is time that passes to action.

No one can or should blame the health system such as anxiety problems have now become a real epidemic.

It would be totally impossible to attend as due to each of the persons suffering from a mental disorder, thus, more important than a professional to devote to each of those with anxiety, would prescribe more books and fewer drugs.

Give more and better information for people to understand what anxiety is and how it works, helping them understand that it is within themselves where they can find their best medicine.

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
