Ricketts, Ruelas compose mental health memo to Board of Trustees

first_imgEric Richelsen | The Observer Student government compiled its new research and recommendations on mental health in a memo to the University Board of Trustees.Student body president Bryan Ricketts said the memo is an extension of a report on student stress and mental health written by Lauren Vidal and Matthew Devine, last year’s student body president and vice president, as well as Shannon Montague, their chief of staff.“We thought it was a great conversation,” Ricketts said. “Their look at student stress examined how conditions can exacerbate mental illness, or even create it for the first time. Now we’re examining some of the leftover questions, looking more at the actions taken to help students with mental illness.”Dan Sehlhorst, student body chief of staff, said the memo contained a further analysis of mental illness in relation to high-risk groups on campus, as well as information about individual colleges’ responses to student mental health needs.Sehlhorst said student government issued two main recommendations in the memo, suggesting changes to address the climate and procedures related to mental illness on Notre Dame’s campus.Ricketts said student government defined stigma reduction and emphasized the role of community as segments of its recommendation about the climate surrounding mental illness on campus.“Through a combination of academic research, campus research and data analysis we did over the summer, we were able to sit back and decide what we, as a student government, want to accomplish this year,” he said.Sehlhorst said the memo addressed five procedures related to mental illness — parental education, collegiate targeted outreach, high-risk group targeted outreach, faculty education and college referral education.Educating parents about the mental health resources on campus could help them provide support to their children in times of need, Sehlhorst said.“We want to help parents know better how to refer their students if they were identifying signs that they needed some additional help — maybe they’re way too stressed over the phone, maybe they’re really depressed,” he said.Vidal and Devine’s report highlighted freshman students and international Asian students as those with a higher risk of stress-related mental illnesses, Sehlhorst said.“We identified five additional high-risk groups: LGBTQ students, racial and ethnic minorities, students who have a background of high socioeconomic need, men and non-Catholic students,” he said. “Each of those groups face mental health issues in a different way. They often face different types of mental health issues, so they need to all be dealt with in a specific way.”Sehlhorst said different on-campus organizations have close relationships with different demographics, allowing them to serve as a resource for different high-risk groups.The memo also notes the importance of faculty education about the mental health resources on campus, such as the Campus Assessment Response and Education Team (CARE Team), Ricketts said.Sehlhorst said student government suggested broader faculty training programs to teach faculty members about ways to recognize mental illnesses and how to help put students in touch with the resources available to them.“It would start with the actual training … so they know the warning signs and resources available,” he said. “A lot of colleges do this really well already. Basically, what we are identifying is we can still improve even further.”Ricketts said it is important to continue the collaboration between the different colleges at the University, continuously evaluating the best way to help students access the resources they need.“These are all ideas, initiatives that we’re using to frame how we’re dealing with mental health and how we’re engaging with administrators and the colleges on mental health issues,” he said.To address mental illness, student government has also created a department of health and wellness and assisted in the development and promotion of the McDonald Center for Student Well-Being, Ricketts said.Members of the Notre Dame community have vocalized their desires to address mental illness on campus, Ricketts said.“This is an issue that affects students, and we want to make sure we’re continuing that dialogue and continuing student engagement with the issue,” he said.Tags: Board of Trustees, mental illness, Notre Dame, Student Government Memolast_img read more

Lightning Rule.

first_imgSpring and summer in Georgia means outdoor activities and thunderstorms. In the United States, lightning kills more people than hurricanes or tornadoes. And using a simple “30-30” rule can help keep you safe during thunderstorms.The 30-30 rule for thunderstorm safety is simple: when you hear thunder within 30 seconds of a lightning flash, seek shelter and stay there at least 30 minutes after the last lightning flash.Start counting as soon as you see a lightning flash and keep counting until you hear the thunder associated with the flash.Since sound travels at about 5 seconds per mile, a 30-second count means lightning has struck within 6 miles of you. That’s within the striking distance of lightning.If less than 30 seconds elapses between the lightning flash and the sound of its thunder, seek shelter immediately.The Best ShelterThe best shelter is a sturdy building. A hardtop car is a fair second choice. But small sheds, picnic shelters, baseball dugouts and bleachers don’t offer adequate protection from lightning.Once you’ve found shelter, remain there until the threat of lightning has passed — generally 30 minutes. More than half of all lightning deaths occur after the storm has passed.An important part of lightning safety is to remain aware of weather conditions. While outside, be aware of dark and threatening clouds that may be forming thunderstorms. Being aware will give you more time to seek shelter.Danger Before the StormYou may not hear thunder before the storm is close enough to cause damage. Lightning can exit a thunderstorm cloud directly to the ground, or can strike to the side of the cloud long distances away.Besides the 30-30 rule, there are other lightning safety rules everyone should follow during thunderstorms.If you’re inside, stay away from doors, windows and metal indoor plumbing fixtures and electrical devices.Electricity from lightning can enter a building along telephone or power lines, television cables or water lines. Avoid taking baths or showers, washing clothes or dishes or using wired telephones or electrical devices such as computers, televisions or stereos.If You’re Outside…If you’re outside, avoid water, open high ground and isolated large trees. Lightning often, but not always, strikes the highest point in the area, so don’t let yourself be the highest object around.If caught on the water, get to shore as quickly as you can. If the watercraft can’t make it to shore fast enough, make yourself as low as possible without touching metal.Swimming or wading in the water during a thunderstorm is very dangerous.If caught outside, it’s best not to huddle together in groups. Individuals should squat several feet apart in low places away from trees and other tall objects.Shun Lightning ConductorDon’t stand near a tall and isolated lightning conductor, either, since the lightning current can travel through the ground and through water for some distance. Avoid metal, including tractors, fences, golf clubs, towers and antennas.Don’t lean against metal objects such as fences, cars or bicycles, either.If you see someone hit by lightning, summon emergency aid as soon as possible and go to that person’s help as soon as you can.Help Lightning VictimsMany lightning victims are only stunned or have their hearts temporarily stopped. They can often be saved by the timely application of rescue breathing, CPR or defibrillators. As many as 90 percent of lightning strike victims survive with prompt emergency care.Following simple lightning safety rules can help ensure that your outdoor activities are safe and worry-free.More lightning safety guidelines may be found at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Lightning Safety Web page (www.lightningsafety.noaa.gov/outdoors.htm).A web page for lightning safety for children is at www.azstarnet.com/~anubis/sabintro.htm.

Gerrard expects Suarez backlash

first_img “I think I’d rather back the referee than have a go at him.” While Sturridge, who was only deemed fit enough to start on the bench after playing 90 minutes for England despite having been struggling with a dead leg for several days, was hailed as the late hero, Gerrard singled out youngster Jon Flanagan, starting his first derby in an unfamiliar left-back position, for special praise. The 33-year-old midfielder likened the academy graduate to recently-retired club great Jamie Carragher. “Daniel has obviously been carrying a bit of a niggle of late but the manager said in his team-talk that he could probably come on and be the match winner or play a very important part coming off the bench,” Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo. “But you look at our team and our star man for me was Jon Flanagan by a country mile. “He doesn’t get many headlines but as captain of the team he was the player I am most proud of. I thought he was unbelievable. “He’s been fighting hard in training just to get in the 18, never mind the starting 11, but the manager threw him in at the deep end against a top-class player like Mirallas and I thought he was sensational. “It was one of the best derby performances I have seen for many years. “He reminds me of Carragher in a lot of ways. “I don’t think you would judge Jon in terms of ability or skill, but he is all about heart, desire, determination and fighting for the cause. “He’s a Liverpool fan like myself so I know what it meant to him to come into a derby and finish as our man of the match by a mile. “He was on the front foot, he was aggressive. He did exactly what the manager told him to do before kick off. He was brilliant. “He’s a local lad and you don’t need to tell them what the derby means. He’s known what to expect from an early age. “All of the players gave him a round of applause when he came in the dressing room afterwards. He was sensational.” Suarez scored a brilliant free-kick but was twice denied by Toffees goalkeeper Tim Howard in the second half of the 3-3 draw in which Daniel Sturridge salvaged a point for the Reds with an 89th-minute equaliser. Gerrard knows the Uruguay international will not be thinking about his excellent personal performance – achieved despite a knee-high tackle from Kevin Mirallas which manager Brendan Rodgers branded potentially career-ending and could have resulted in a red card – or a point gained at Goodison Park. Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard believes striker Luis Suarez will have a burning desire to make amends for not winning the 221st Merseyside derby – and that could spell trouble for next week’s opponents Hull. “Luis is a machine. He’s right up there with the best in the world,” said the England captain. “Luis is the type of player who won’t be thinking about his free-kick after the game, he’ll be thinking about the header he missed. “That’s why he’s so good. He’ll be desperate to get back out and make amends for that. “That’s what the best players do, they don’t get big-headed over the good things they do but analyse the mistakes and where it went wrong and how they can improve.” Although Rodgers felt referee Phil Dowd got the Mirallas decision wrong, Gerrard defended the official. “To be fair to the referee when I initially saw the incident I was thinking ‘yellow card’,” he added. “I was probably the same distance away from it as the referee so you have to give him the benefit of the doubt. “Now I have seen it again though it’s a red card, everyone knows that, but it’s very difficult to say that in a split-second and at that distance.

Men’s hoops hits the road for one game

first_imgMatt Karatsu | Daily TrojanThrow it down · Freshman guard De’Anthony Melton is a spark off the bench for the Trojans and leads the Pac-12 in steals with 18 this year.After three home games last week, USC (6-0) tips-off against the University of San Diego Toreros (2-4) at the Jenny Craig Pavilion in San Diego on Wednesday at 7 p.m.The Trojans are off to their best start since the 2000-01 season (8-0), and their success can be attributed to their depth. Five players are averaging double digits, and freshman guard De’Anthony Melton is scoring 9.7 points per game. At times, Melton has looked like USC’s best player. Despite coming off the bench every game, he has been on the court at the end of every close contest. His crucial steal with 10 seconds to play at Texas A&M sealed the Trojan’s third victory of the young season. Three games later, Melton is the Pac-12 leader in steals with 18 on the season. Additionally, the 6-foot-4 guard is shooting a team-high 56 percent from the floor and 33 percent from three. He is also averaging 5.8 rebounds per game, third on the team, and 3.3 assists per game, second on the team.Other newcomers have stepped up too. Louisville transfer, redshirt sophomore Shaqquan Aaron is second on the team in scoring and fourth in field goal percentage. Freshman Jonah Mathews, albeit streaky at times, has shown glimpses of stellar all-around basketball. He is only shooting 27.8 percent from 3 this far, but he will certainly raise that number as he continues to adjust to the collegiate level. Nonetheless, he is third on the team in assists with 12, and he is second on the team in assists-per-40-minutes with 5.1. Like Matthews, freshman forward Nick Rakocevic is also contributing 5 points per game. He adds 3.7 rebounds per contest and leads the team in rebounds-per-40-minutes with 10.7.Head coach Andy Enfield has been able to play all 13 men on the roster this season, and he has eight in the rotation. No one plays more than captains junior guard Jordan McLaughlin (32.7 mpg) and sophomore forward Bennie Boatwright (30.0 mpg), so everyone should have fresh legs come conference play. Another good sign for the Trojans last week was that their offense came to life. The team had been shooting under 30 percent from behind the arc in their first three games, but USC shot 44 percent from downtown last week, making 37 3s. Boatwright’s return has certainly aided the Trojans. After two rough games versus Texas A&M and New Orleans, Boatwright averaged 19 points versus SMU and UCSB, making nine of 18 3s. In just their second true road game of the season, the Trojans will be targets of another trap game. The Toreros will be prepared for USC after a challenging schedule so far that included match-ups versus UCLA and Samford. The team can stretch the floor very well with three players shooting above 45 percent from 3. Senior forward Brett Bailey leads the Toreros in scoring at 17.5 points per game. In USD’s most recent game, a home loss to New Mexico State, Bailey posted 24 points, nine rebounds and a career-high seven assists. Sophomore guard Olin Carter III is second on the team in scoring at 16.0 points per game. Bailey and Carter have scored roughly 48 percent of their team’s points this season, so if USC can shut them down, they will make winning on the road a whole lot easier.Last year, USC and USD met at the Galen Center in the Trojans home opener. USC won 83-45. Now, they try to sweep the home-and-home series and go 6-0 all-time versus the Toreros and 7-0 on the season.last_img read more
