“Many residents depend on a routine, but since COVID-19, residents are forced to find their new norm. They are no longer able to live a normal life and are forced to self-isolate which has increased suicide watch. Residents are constantly expressing to me how lonely they feel and how they fear for their well-being every day. Nursing school taught me how to administer medication, put in catheters, and many other nursing skills but I was never taught how to handle suicidal residents. Every day I am hearing residents say things like, ‘I want to kill myself’ or ‘there is nothing to live for now’, and I feel this pressure to say the right thing, but what is the right thing to say? I find myself lying awake at night wondering and hoping that I said the right thing. This is a constant fear and the sad thing is that this is only the beginning.” … [Read more...] about COVID-19 Mental Health: Support Workers Struggle to Cope

And in the worst unfairness to men, when women have a deficit, for example, they're "under-represented" in science, we see massive redress despite the two-decade study reported in the New York Times that found that women in academic science fare as well or better than men[xviii]. Yet when men have the ultimate deficit--as mentioned, they live five years shorter--a search of PubMed, which indexes 3,000 medical journals for the last 60 years, on the terms "women's health" and men's health," reveals 43 times(!) as many studies using "women's health." And regarding outreach, there's a sea of pink ribbons but only a trickle for prostate cancer and even less for sudden heart attack, which kills many more men and earlier.
