Supporting a loved one with mental illness presents many challenges. But one of them isn’t blame. It’s important for families “to learn that they didn’t cause [their loved one’s disorder] and they can’t cure it,” according to Harriet Lefley, Ph.D, professor at the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine who’s worked with families for 25 years.

Divorce is never an easy solution for a marriage. By the time a couple gets to the point where they’ve made a decision to pursue dissolving their relationship, communication has broken down, and feelings of fondness give way to harsh criticism, defensiveness, feelings of contempt and eventually stonewalling, once these behaviors begin to play out it can be hard to see a way back to being  emotionally connected and happy. However, there are ways people can rebuild their relationship and explore whether their marriage is worth saving.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month.  One out of every five students report being the victim of bullying.  Bullying is defined as “intentional behavior that hurts, harms or humiliates a student, either physically or emotionally”.  Bullying can happen at school, in the community or online.  Bullying is not about conflict, it is about power and control.  Kids and adults who bully often use their power, such as physical strength, embarrassing information or popularity to control or harm others.
