For many people experiencing mental health difficulties, fear of the stigma associated with conditions can affect how they relate to others. At work, the potential reactions of both colleagues and employers may make those struggling with a mental health condition feel unable to be open about their experiences. Mental health discrimination initiative Time to Change has formulated an employer pledge, through which companies can demonstrate their “commitment to change how we think and act about mental health in the workplace, and make sure that employees who are facing these problems feel supported”.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a lifelong autoimmune condition that affects the brain and the spinal cord, resulting in a wide range of symptoms that vary from person-to-person. Joan Didion, Jack Osbourne and Selma Blair, who was diagnosed in August, are among those in the public eye who live with MS. MS inhibits how well a person’s central nervous system functions, subsequently interrupting the process whereby the brain sends signals to the rest of the body to enable you to do simple things like move, eat and see.
Long gone are the days when employees would sidle out of the office at 12 noon for a lunchtime meeting only to trundle back three hours later, two courses and a bottle of Chardonnay down.

Breast cancer is more commonly associated with women than with men, affecting approximately one in eight women in their lifetimes. While boys do not develop breasts like girls do during puberty, they still have a small amount of breast tissue behind the nipples where breast cancer can develop, Macmillan Cancer Support explains. “Until puberty, breast tissue in boys and girls is the same.
The struggle with anxiety has no name, age or race, but each of these factors plays a role in the way it is perceived in society. Abacus Canada conducted a study of 1,500 Canadians to weigh opinions on anxiety, and one of the standout findings revealed a pattern among those who practice particular religions. Individuals who identified as Muslim, Sikh, Jewish and Hindu faiths widely agreed – an average of 70 per cent of the time – that anxiety was curable. ...
People who are selfish tend to have fewer children and lower salaries than those who are not, a new study reveals. Researchers from the University of Stockholm are suggesting the concept that selfish people accrue more money thanks to their thrifty ways is nonsense after it found that people who engage in selfless behaviour are in fact more likely to receive a higher income and have larger families. Published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the study “Generosity pays: Selfish people have fewer children and earn less money“ focuses on selfishness from an economical and evolutionary perspective.
