The duo of Sonny Cumbie and Doug Meacham has brought TCU’s offense up to par, to say the least.The co-offensive coordinators have turned down head coaching offers to remain in Fort Worth and once again guide TCU’s offense.Last year, Cumbie and Meacham revamped the team’s offense to be faster during and between plays, introducing the “air raid” style to a previously dragging tempo.From 2013 to 2014, TCU had the nation’s most improved offense in total yards and scoring. The Frogs doubled their points scored between the two seasons and improved points per game by 21.That offense broke several school records last fall including total points, total offensive yards, and touchdowns in a season.Experience on the LineFour starters on the Frogs’ offensive line are returning, and two of them were All-Big 12 selections last season.Both center Joey Hunt and tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai earned the honor, and they will be leading the line along with guards Brady Foltz and Jamelle Naff.Vaitai will take on the responsibility of left tackle since Tayo Fabuluje graduated.The newcomer to the line will probably be sophomore Joseph Noteboom, who finished spring practice as a first-team right tackle. Noteboom played in all 13 games last year.Austin Schlottman has not started for TCU, but the sophomore will likely get some good playing time this season. He also appeared in every game last season and can play either center or tackle for the Frogs.Key ReturnersTrevone BoykinNot a whistle has been blown, and Trevone Boykin is already on Heisman watch lists.Off the field, the quarterback has recovered from last season’s injury to his non-throwing wrist and has represented the university well in the off-season.On the gridiron, the offense as a whole broke TCU records last year, but Boykin alone set eight new marks for the Frogs.The Big 12 Preseason Offensive Player of the Year broke four of Andy Dalton’s records, including season touchdown passes and total offense in a season.Boykin’s completion rate crept over 61 percent last season, and he threw 10 interceptions in 13 games.The Dallas native also came out as a dual-threat quarterback in 2014, rushing for more than 700 yards and averaging nearly five per carry.Josh DoctsonTwenty Frogs had at least one reception in the 2014 campaign.Josh Doctson had 65.A highlight-worthy one-handed touchdown reception in last year’s victory over Minnesota put Doctson in the national spotlight, but he continued to impress throughout the fall.The senior wide receiver was another record-breaker last season, setting school-high marks for season receiving yards and season touchdown receptions, with 1,018 and 11, respectively.Doctson’s consistency was key in 2014, and his experience should play a large role during his senior season.Who to WatchTrevorris Johnson In his only year of game experience at TCU, Trevorris Johnson ranked fourth on the roster with 302 rushing yards.At 5 feet 11 inches and 221 pounds, Johnson will provide the power needed for short, explosive plays in the red zone.The sophomore tailback entered TCU as the No. 7 running back in Texas, and he averaged 5.7 yards per carry over 12 games last season.Johnson ran for a career-high 105 yards and two touchdowns in the 82-27 blowout over Texas Tech.last_img read more

The petition was filed by sister in law of the deceased seeking anticipatory bail from arrest against the allegations of harassment and abetment to suicide. The petitioner argued that except for the allegations of mere harassment, there was no direct or indirect incitement of the petitioner to the deceased for committing suicide. The petitioner relied on an earlier order dated 17.09.2020 of the division bench of Allahabad High Court in the case of Prem Chandra v. State of UP & Ors. granting interim protection in a similar case.The bench while granting interim relief to the petitioner touched upon the aspect of the scope of anticipatory bail in writ jurisdiction of the High Courts and also dealt with the essential elements in meeting the requirements of Sec. 306 IPC. The Court held that in order to make on offence under Sec. 306 IPC, mere allegation or assertion regarding harassment of the deceased does not suffice. There must be a proof of direct or indirect act of incitement leading to commission of suicide. The Court observed that in the present case, there is no prima facie assertion of any such direct or indirect incitement of the petitioner towards the deceased committing suicide. The observation is in accordance with a similar observation made by the Supreme Court recently in the case of Arnab Manoranjan Goswami v. State of Maharashtra & Ors. (2020) where the Court discussed the essential ingredients of Sec. 306 IPC. On the aspect of the scope of anticipatory bail under writ jurisdiction of High Court, the Court ruled that the scope of writ jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution of India is much larger than the scope of Section 438 Cr.P.C. The Court while granting interim relief to the petitioner directed that there will be no arrest till the next date of hearing in connection with the FIR. Case name: Nasim Bano v.

Supporting employees with bipolar disorder

first_img What is the experience of OH practitioners when trying to give advice on managing employees with bipolar disorder? And what specific advice is helpful for managers? Jane Downey investigates.In her memoir An Unquiet Mind, the clinical psychologist and leading authority on bipolar disorder (or “manic depression” as it was referred to in the past) Professor Kay Redfield Jamison describes both her professional and personal perspective struggles and triumphs in trying to manage this often misunderstood, maligned and stigmatised condition.Redfield Jamison describes bipolar disorder “as an illness that is biological in its origins, yet one that feels psychological in the experience of it; an illness that is unique in conferring advantage and pleasure, yet one that brings in its wake almost unendurable suffering and, not infrequently, suicide”.The “advantage” that Jamieson refers to could be interpreted as the creative temperament that is often associated with this condition and which no doubt has been fuelled by the number of celebrities across the artistic spectrum whose struggles with this condition have been either openly acknowledged or deduced from historical accounts of their symptoms and behaviours.A few of such luminaries include Sylvia Plath and Ernest Hemingway from the world of literature; musicians Jimi Hendrix and Ian Curtis; maverick artists Caravaggio and Van Gogh, not to mention numerous figures from stage and screen.However, the vast majority of people with this condition are not celebrated artists, and there is a concern from certain quarters that this attitude can “glamorise” the way the condition is perceived.Novelist Matt Haig, when discussing this subject in an article in The Telegraph wrote that as a teenager he had viewed the suicide of Kurt Cobain, Nirvana’s frontman, in this stereotypical way.However, in his mid-twenties Haig himself suffered a serious episode of depression where he states he did consider suicide. Fortunately, with support he recovered and, now nearing 40 and looking back at his youth and at the misconceptions he had about mental illness, he goes on to say that: “Depression is an illness. It is not a ticket to genius… You don’t have to be a creative maverick to have a troubled mind. You just have to be human.”Back in August 2015 a paper published in The British Journal of Psychiatry indicated that there is a possible link between intelligence, creativity and bipolar disorder. As part of the study, referred to as the ALSPAC study (Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children), scientists at the Universities of Glasgow, Bristol, Cardiff and Texas looked at data from children of the 1990s’ birth cohort.They discovered that higher childhood IQ, which was measured in the study at age eight, could indicate a risk of bipolar disorder in adulthood and was particularly associated with verbal IQ (VIQ).Professor Daniel Smith, the study’s main author, was quick to emphasise that it does not indicate that high IQ in childhood is a “clear-cut” risk factor for later development of bipolar disorder in adulthood. As he states, that there are other factors such as: family history of mental illness; childhood adversity; drug misuse and other serious life stressors to take into account.However, he did go on to say that: “Our finding has implications for understanding of how liability to bipolar disorder may have been selected through generations. One possibility is that serious disorders of mood such as bipolar disorder are the price that human beings have had to pay for more adaptive traits such as intelligence, creativity and verbal proficiency.”So, what is the experience of OH practitioners when trying to give advice on managing this particular client group? And what specific advice is helpful for managers when faced with employees who are struggling to manage this condition at work? To get a wider perspective, I spoke to two experienced practitioners from different backgrounds and work cultures.The consultant psychiatrist’s perspectiveDr Stephen Pereira is a consultant psychiatrist, CBT specialist and much sought-after speaker on mental health conditions. He has a varied (mostly London-based) clientele stretching from the arts to the world of finance, for whom he has provided a service since 2000.As such, he has wide experience and knowledge of managing the needs of employees from varied backgrounds. But he has also gained particular expertise in managing the needs of those from the legal and financial sectors. These, of course, are sectors that have a reputation for long working hours and attracting notably “driven” individuals, some of whom can resort to less than holistic methods of managing these demands.Although Dr Pereira states that the causes of a bipolar episode “are often biological” the triggers, especially in this type of environment, can in his experience be as a result of “an employee being perceived as a star trader/employee as when they are hypomanic they will characteristically display excessive energy, so they can often work to the early hours of the morning. Then following a couple of hours of sleep return to repeat the same cycle.”However, he goes on to state that “when they are exhausted and can’t complete and so are perceived by others and themselves as not delivering these perceptions can then often trigger a depressive episode in a vulnerable individual.”This situation Dr Pereira states can then result in some employees relying on illegal drug use to manage their symptoms. For the younger city worker this is likely to be MDMA commonly known as Ecstasy, and for the older one cocaine. The employee is unlikely to have recognised their condition, but they may get referred to him with symptoms of insomnia, high energy, impulsivity, low mood or excessive alcohol use.When asked about the frequency of this condition, Dr Pereira states that “although 2% of the population may fall into the classical bipolar l or bipolar 11 disorder, a further 5-6% of the population are now thought to have what is termed as ‘subthreshold bipolar disorder.” This means that they may have fewer symptoms or symptoms that endure for less time than the classical bipolar types discussed above. Nevertheless, these symptoms can still mean they are suffering from significant psychological symptoms, which could also include suicidal ideation.Dr Pereira states that this type of presentation, in his experience is not uncommon and, sadly, it is often diagnosed later in life when the condition has often “wreaked havoc due to wrecked relationships and unwise career moves.” He goes on to state “if this condition could be picked up earlier, these symptoms could be managed more effectively which would not only impact positively on their personal relationships but also their employability.” However, quite commonly “GPs and even psychiatrists have picked up on their depression but not their hypomania unless the person mentions it as they often see it as part of their personality,” he adds. Dr Pereira goes on to state that people with this condition are at greater risk of suicidal ideation and self-harm than people with unipolar depression.Management of bipolar disorderDr Pereira stresses that early diagnosis is key to managing bipolar disorder effectively so that appropriate treatment can be implemented. This usually requires medication “as this is a biochemical condition and so it needs a biochemical solution”, he argues. Therapy, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can be helpful, particularly “for mild to moderate symptoms of depression, but CBT is less effective for severe symptoms of bipolar disorder due to the difficulties an individual is likely to experience in engaging in therapy,” Dr Pereira states.Dr Pereira also recommends that psychoeducation, in other words the implementation by the individual of good self-management strategies (such as appropriate diet, regular exercise and good sleep hygiene and so on) is also a very important part of their management programme.However, Dr Pereira is also keen to stress the pivotal role organisations can and should play in supporting individuals with bipolar disorder, particularly line-managers. Like many practitioners who are responsible for supporting employees with these type of symptoms, Pereira has seen at first hand the difference a caring, supportive manager can make.As Dr Pereira puts it: “Undertaking mental health training is crucial for a manager not only to de-stigmatise stress (as we all get stressed) but also so that the manager realises the importance of noticing symptoms that may indicate all is not well, so that they are not frightened to ask employees ‘are you ok?’ and ask simple questions about wellbeing such as ‘are you sleeping well etc.?’.”Dr Pereira goes on further to state that a caring, holistic approach to management is essential for all employee wellbeing, or as he articulates it: “good management should promote an attitude of general caring for the individual not just assessing if they are delivering or not.”Dr Pereira also believes that employees with bipolar disorder can be high achieving and of considerable value to an organisation, so long as their talents are channelled appropriately with the right support in place.The OH adviser’s perspectiveMy second interviewee was Frances Harries, OH adviser who has worked in occupational health for more than 30 years. Her experience has predominantly being within local authorities.Like most OHNs over the years she, together with the OH physician, has provided occupational health advice to management on supporting a number of employees with bipolar disorder.There was one case that Harries remembers where the employee was having particular difficulties settling in to a new, fairly demanding role. Although the role was new, the employee had very good transferrable skills but there were certain aspects of the job that appeared to be causing her some anxiety, in the first few months she had raised absence.What really helped “was having a manager that listened to her and carried out a risk assessment so that a couple of tasks that were causing her anxiety were modified slightly without needing to make major changes to the role itself” emphasises Harries.Similarly, she believes that, from the employee’s perspective, what transformed her attendance and performance “was the employee gaining insight about her specific personal triggers which appeared to relate to staying later and later at work which then affected her sleep and would then often result in an episode of depression or hypomania.”Apparently after an initially bumpy start, the above support measures (particularly the supportive and creative approach of the manager) together with the growing insight of the employee regarding what issues triggered and mitigated their symptoms seemed to be what made the difference in managing their condition effectively at work.Over time the employee flourished in her role and, when there was the occasional hiccough, a supportive working environment, regular OH reviews and implementation of the employee’s personal “WRAP” (Wellness Recovery Action Plan) lessened the effect of symptoms and related absence (See table 1).Bipolar disorder as categorised in the past by DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 4th edition published by the American Psychiatric Association) could result in under-diagnosis of the condition. This was not least because a person’s symptoms did not always fall neatly into the defined subgroups arranged in terms of severity, for example bipolar 1; bipolar 11; cyclothymic disorder and so on.This meant that a large proportion of treated patients were classified as NOS (“Not Otherwise Specified”). DSM-5, the 2013 revised edition, although not perfect, is thought by many clinicians to be a more helpful classification system as it now includes, among other previously excluded groups, those who have subthreshold symptoms.However, although knowledge of the symptoms of bipolar disorder is very useful to the OH practitioner, particularly when up to 5-6% of the working population may be struggling at work with subthreshold symptoms, diagnosis per se is obviously not part of the OH remit.Nevertheless, OH does have an important role in giving the best advice to management and supporting an employee to function as effectively as possible should they present with related issues at pre-placement, whilst in employment, or following a period of related absence is very much part of our role.Bipolar disorder is a complex condition and, like other mental health disorders, an individual’s symptoms may not always fall neatly into the various categorisations. Its fluctuating and cyclical nature can mean that employees can often go for many years without a major episode. But much of this will depend on the particular type of bipolar disorder they have and whether they adhere to their specific treatment plan and self-management strategies as advised by their psychiatrist and mental health practitioners.However, from an employment perspective, as pointed out by Dr Pereira and Harries, what can be just as crucially important is whether the employee feels they can discuss their condition with their line manager. This can allow them to be properly supported by appropriate adjustments, some of which may often only need to be temporary.Ignorance about mental health issues is often at the root of poor management and, consequently, poor outcomes. Training, adherence to good mental health policies and an open, flexible approach are all key to enabling a manager to support an employee appropriately. However, as OH practitioners, we can and should be playing a major role in enabling this to take place.What the organisation can doProvide and encourage a culture that destigmatises mental health issues and places an importance on having good mental healthEnsure mental wellbeing policies and procedures are in place and implementedProvide training to managers and employees on mental health awarenessPut in place training and procedures in place for managers to combat workplace stressEnsure managers actively encourage dialogue with the individual and understand the importance of early interventionIf sickness absence occurs, ensure action planning is implemented early to support a positive return to workHave good OH support in place to advise and assist on the implementation of the above.What the line manager can doUndertake mental health trainingImplement good management – take an interest in the person as an individual not just their outputWhen a person is experiencing the early symptoms of a possible episode, discuss with them what temporary adjustments may assist them through a difficult period (flexibility and a little creative thinking can have a very positive impact on outcome)Refer to occupational health for advice on managing difficulties at work or related absence and liaise with HR so the employee receives optimal support.What the employee can doMaintain medication as advised by psychiatrist and ensuring attendance at reviews and blood tests etcPsychoeducation (ensure they are finding out more about bipolar disorder)Mood monitoring – to elicit when mood is swinging (apps can now be used to assist with this)Mood strategies – to help prevent mood swinging into a full blown manic or depressive episodeDevelop general coping skillsCognitive behavioural therapy(CBT) for depressionAim to maintain a good work/life balance, so have time for work, leisure and relationshipsReferencesRedfield Jamison, K,  ‘An Unquiet Mind’ .

It’s a complex illness. People don’t always know when they’re becoming unwell. It needs to be understood. Up to 10% of people with bipolar take their own lives. Around 1:100 people have bipolar. People with bipolar need support. Working itself is essential to wellbeing.

OCHS Girls’ Lacrosse Team Suffers Setback

first_imgOcean City’s Danielle Donoghue, in white uniform, on the draw against a Garnet Valley player. By Lesley GrahamThe Ocean City High School girls’ lacrosse team lost to Garnet Valley, Pa., Tuesday evening, 19-7.Danielle Donoghue led Ocean City with three goals and two assists. Maddie McKee led Garnet Valley with nine goals. The loss dropped the Red Raiders to 7-2 overall, with both defeats coming to non-conference opponents this season. Eighth-ranked Ocean City jumped up in the state rankings after a big win over Eastern High School last Saturday. Ocean City’s Emily DiMarino (24) looks toward the goal for a scoring opportunity.Ocean City Coach Alyssa Morrison made it a point to let her team know she was proud of them. “You have nothing to lose, you have proven yourselves this season and that’s what you should take with you,” Morrison said. “The team fought hard, never giving up, even after they got up quick on us to start the game. That’s something to be proud of,” she added. Ocean City fell into a 4-0 hole during the first five minutes of the game. The Red Raiders then started to find their groove and chip away at the lead, with Donoghue adding the first goal and assisting on the second. Garnet Valley then added five more goals in the next five minutes to bolster its lead to 9-2. Ocean City struggled to get the ball out of the defensive third of the field, allowing the Jaguars of Garnet Valley second opportunities at the cage. Abbey Fenton made some fantastic saves in net for Ocean City throughout the game, but the offensive firepower was too much for the team to handle. The Red Raiders chipped in two more goals with a beautiful feed and finish from Donoghue to Emily DiMarino low off the crease to cut the lead to 9-4. Ocean City goalie Abbey Fenton (82) keeps an eye on the ball behind the cage.With under five minutes remaining in the first half, the Jaguars tallied four more goals, expanding their lead to 13-4 to enter halftime. As the second half got underway, Ocean City attempted to mount a comeback, coming out strong early on. Both teams traded goals in the middle of the second half before Garnet Valley added the final three of the game to seal the victory. In assessing her team’s performance, Morrison said, “This was a highly competitive game that will help the girls prepare for states in the upcoming weeks and we can learn from our mistakes going forward in the season.”Ocean City is back in action Wednesday to face conference foe Lower Cape May with a 5:30 p.m. start at Carey Stadium.The ball is fed inside to a waiting attacker for a shot.last_img read more
