Ted Talks
Depression: For every 20 suicide attempts, 19 of these attempts are unsuccessful. Fortunately, Jack Park is one of these 19. In this talk, he shares his story of living with a mental disorder and revisits ways he found love and hope. He shows us the world of mental illness in a new light, so we can begin addressing issues associated with suicide, depression, and other preventable mental disorders. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ur8TZf6HWSs
Hunter Kent, a senior at Cape Elizabeth High School, spent many of her teen years battling depression, a devastating condition that is often easy to hide and difficult to acknowledge. She courageously shares her profound journey from despair to peace, and how she now uses her past suffering to connect and empathize with her fellow students in need of encouragement and hope. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rv9SwZWVkOs

TedTalk
Anxiety is one of most prevalent mental health disorders, with 1 out of 14 people around the world being likely affected. Leading up to conditions such as depression, increased risk for suicide, disability and requirement of high health services, very few people who often need treatment actually receive it. In her talk “How to cope with anxiety”, Olivia Remes of the University of Cambridge will share her vision on anxiety and will unravel ways to treat and manage this health disorder. Arguing that treatments such as psychotherapy and medication exist and often result in poor outcome and high rates of relapses, she will emphasise the importance of harnessing strength in ourselves as we modify our problem-coping mechanisms. Olivia will stress that by allowing ourselves to believe that what happens in life is comprehensive, meaningful, and manageable, one can significantly improve their risk of developing anxiety disorders.

TedTalk
What makes you, you? Psychologists like to talk about our traits, or defined characteristics that make us who we are. But Brian Little is more interested in moments when we transcend those traits — sometimes because our culture demands it of us, and sometimes because we demand it of ourselves. Join Little as he dissects the surprising differences between introverts and extroverts and explains why your personality may be more malleable than you think. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYvXk_bqlBk
