The Outcome of Treatments Available
I wanted to highlight a recent government report which supports the value of psychological therapy, while alerting us to the deeply depressing news on its availability.
Anxiety, depression, and other such disorders are now the greatest social problem in the UK, affecting unemployment considerably.
Lord Layard advised the government on financial issues as Professor Economic Performance of the London School of Economics, stating that anxiety and related disorders affects around 15%, of the population and if you have one of these often crippling conditions you are unlikely to get any specialist help at all. You can see your GP, but are only likely to be prescribed medication, which is unlikely to work.
Medication for disorders, depression or anxiety is more likely to prevent you from working than the anxiety or disorder itself, while internet intervention is more likely to help.

Maximise Your Growth Potential
spinner writes "A question that I have seen asked many times on this site is ‘How can I make my hair grow faster?’ The simple answer to this is that you can’t. Your hair is genetically programmed to grow a maximum of 6 inches per year and no magic pill or potion is going to change what mother nature has intended. You can, however maximise your growth potential by nurturing and nourishing your hair. "
