Testimony of a concerned carer

A healthcare assistant working in a challenging behaviour unit, and with clients suffering from dementia, recently sent us a report highlighting what has become of care-homes during the COVID lockdown crisis.

Religion and Depression in Adolescence

A recently-published study led by university professors from Britain and the U.S.A. proves scientifically that lack of religious faith and practice plays a big part in depression.

The robust study, Religion and Depression in Adolescence, found that the more religious a young person is, the less risk there is of developing clinical depression and mental health problems. Conversely it shows that the less religious a person, the greater risk there is of an increasing severity of depression.

The study also found that when there is a strong increase in religiosity (for example, someone who doesn’t normally go to Mass or confession starts to go regularly) the risks of severe or moderate depression decrease by eleven percentage points.

“Perhaps the most surprising finding is that the effects were stronger, almost two-thirds stronger, in individuals with the most severe symptoms of depression, the most difficult to treat,” the researchers explain.

One-in-four women surveyed admit the contraceptive pill causes them mental health problems.

The Independent newspaper reports “……. countless studies have identified strong links between taking the pill and poor mental health, and a new BBC Two documentary sheds light on the severity of the problem, revealing how it’s left some women suffering from depression and experiencing suicidal thoughts.
