How Young Refugees’ Traumatic Pasts Shape Their Mental Health


From Nature: “The latest study is the first to try to quantify how these events affect psychiatric problems — and it finds that the risk of developing mental-health problems, and their severity, rises significantly with each accumulated trauma a person has experienced.”

  1. Interesting.
    Best then, to heap more trauma and oppression onto them.
    And tell them about how depression is an “illness”.
    Ohh of course, people caught on, so psychiatry is trying to, AGAIN,
    undo their lies from 5 years ago. It’s no longer serotonin lol.
    Just as they did so many times.

    Next year, it will no longer be, something else.
    Best to scrap it all and concoct a paradigm that no one can escape from,
    although then it will be one that affects everyone, or no one.

    Above all, make people believe that suffering emotionally is an illness.
    And that suffering in this manner, from the mind or brain, deserves for some
    bizzare reason, less healthcare, enforced treatment, jailing, and NO legal rights.

    It is the only “illness” that receives this kindly “care”.
