If someone if your life seems especially depressed or anxious lately, Morin says there are different questions you can ask to show that you care about them and offer help if they need anything.
Ask if they've been eating and sleeping well — some people are nervous to talk about their emotions, so it may be easier for them to open up starting with a more tangible topic.
Offer to do something for them, anything from giving emotional support to picking up groceries. A gesture like this can go a long way in showing your friend that you appreciate and care about them.

It can be hard for some people to know whether their unhappy emotions and feelings of anxiety or depression are normal, or something more serious, says Morin.
If your change in mood has lasted longer than two weeks, is causing you to struggle keeping up at work, or is leading you to unhealthy coping skills, it may be a good idea to seek professional help.
Remember that seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness — everyone needs a support system to be there through difficult times.

- Guardian 12:30August 3, 2020Lili Taylor: 'I knew Harvey Weinstein was a pig. I didn't know he was a rapist'The much-loved star of Mystic Pizza, Say Anything and I Shot Andy Warhol discusses acting, alcoholism, friendship and the SCUM manifestoLili Taylor is one of those rare actors who makes whatever project she is in feel classier, no matter how small her part. (The few other actors who manage that, since you ask, are Parker Posey, Alfre Woodard, Kathryn Hahn and Chris Cooper.) She would always rather take an interesting minor role over a bland major one, and she then plays it with such punch and personality that she nearly steals the show. In 1989’s Say Anything, she took what could have been a thankless side role – John Cusack’s platonic best friend – and made it the joyful moral centre of the film. In Six Feet Under she darkened the mood yet further when she turned up in the second series as the fretful and furtive Lisa. Only occasionally has a starring role good enough to deserve her come along, such as her extraordinary turn as Valerie Solanas in 1996’s I Shot Andy Warhol, a biopic of the woman who wrote the infamous SCUM (Society for Cutting Up Men) manifesto and very nearly killed Warhol in 1968.“Solanas was only [mentioned] in two books, no one could handle her. So [director] Mary Harron did all this research, and that was really cool, from a feminist perspective and from a historical perspective. We may not like this woman, but we need to look at this woman,” Taylor says. “That was one of my favourite [jobs], but it was also hard because it set the bar so high. I had to realise that it wasn’t personal when that kind of role didn’t come around again.” Continue reading...

He explains that due to a mental bias called the availability bias, it's unwise to make long-term decisions during moments of crisis, like the pandemic.
This bias refers to the idea that our worldview is shaped by easily available information, events, and experiences, which during a crisis can be distorted to seem extremely negative.
If you're feeling down during the pandemic, do something uplifting like talking to a mentor, and avoid news or media that will make you feel unhappy.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Psychologists say the worst time to make a long-term decision is in the middle of a dramatic crisis like the pandemic because a powerful mental bias called the availability bias makes it very difficult to step outside of the moment.

Burton writes that rapper Kanye West, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at age 39, has recently attracted both intense attention and criticism for his behavior.
The movement to destigmatize mental health should, in theory, encompass all mental health conditions, but those like West's are still widely misunderstood.
"Black people like myself and Kanye are rarely given the opportunity to have their mental illnesses viewed with compassion and understanding," she writes.
Burton says that true destigmatization would mean recognizing more severe illnesses, and how they can sometimes manifest in hurting those around you.

In recent years, iconic rapper Kanye West, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the age of 39, has attracted a lot of attention and fierce criticism for his erratic behavior — particularly his abrupt shift towards conservative politics, including embracing Donald Trump (although he no longer supports the current occupant of the White House).
Some of West's offensive statements — like "slavery was a choice" — were made during what appeared to be severe manic episodes. However, criticism of Kanye has often been fierce and unforgiving, claiming that he is nothing more than a bigot or that his manic episodes are mere marketing ploys.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Leslie Odom, Jr.'s $500,000 gamble that led to a starring role in 'Hamilton'See Also:10 expert-backed tips for navigating virtual career fairs and making sure you stand out to hiring managersThe personal essay that helped a student get into the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern, one of the top business schools in the USHow to get onto the partner track at McKinsey and make millions, according to management-consulting headhunters and a former McKinsey HR managerSEE ALSO: Public discussions about Kanye West have largely ignored his mental health — that's a mistake

- Business Insider 14:09July 23, 2020Trump keeps boasting he 'aced' a 'very hard' cognitive test: Here's one like it you can take — see if you can match himPresident Donald Trump has been boasting about his results in a "very hard" cognitive test, saying he "aced" it and claimed that Democratic challenger Joe Biden could not do the same.
But medical experts say any adult without cognitive issues should get a high score, and that Trump's reaction implies he misunderstands what the test is for.
The test Trump took is likely the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA), which asks people to identify animals based on drawings, draw a clock showing a certain time, and read sentences out loud.
The test's creator said it is "not meant to measure IQ or intellectual skill in any way," but instead to find possible cognitive problems, like memory issues.

But medical experts are cautioning that Trump's high performance on a test where any adult who doesn't suffer cognitive issues is expected to pass is not an impressive feat, and that bragging about it misrepresents mental health issues.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Inside London during COVID-19 lockdownSee Also:John Yoo, the lawyer who wrote Bush's 'torture memos,' confirms he's helping the Trump administration find ways to skirt Congress and impose his own policiesAtlanta's mayor slammed Georgia's Republican governor for trying to stop her mandatory mask order and 'restrain' her from talking about itFox News host Chris Wallace says the cognitive test Trump claims to have 'aced' is 'not the hardest test'

- Business Insider 18:22July 21, 2020I'm pregnant and a mental health counselor. I've been meeting my clients in person during the pandemic despite the health risks — here's whyKylie Chaffin Kylie Chaffin is a 29-year-old licensed mental health counselor who lives in Spokane, Washington and is expecting a baby.
Despite the rising numbers of coronavirus cases in her area, Chaffin has been meeting with clients in person at her private practice since late April because she says it's necessary for the type of therapy she offers, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
Chaffin has a high-risk pregnancy with gestational diabetes, which has added to her stress of meeting clients face to face, but she takes steps to sanitize her office and prioritize safety.
"A lot of my EMDR clients are hesitant to wear face masks because they want to see my facial expression and I want to see theirs. EMDR is a very emotional process because you're reprocessing trauma," she says.
Here's her story as told to Liesl Hammer, a freelance writer.

When I go to my office on the third floor, I have to pass by medical assistants who take temperatures and ask questions about my health. I call them the 'hall monitors.' Once I get past them, I can go to my office.
Usually I offer tea or snacks to clients, but I can't offer them anymore. Instead, I have to wipe down all the handles and make sure everything is clean and sanitized. I have to make sure the sanitizing agent is out, along with masks I offer people in the waiting room.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: 7 secrets about Washington, DC landmarks you probably didn't knowSee Also:What to say to your boss if you're struggling emotionally while working during the pandemic6 ways to develop devoted customers and strengthen brand loyalty for your small businessIf you want to improve employee retention, teach your entry-level workers how they can get promoted — here's howSEE ALSO: 5 things your therapist wants you to stop freaking out about, according to a psychotherapist
