Suicide Prevention App (SPA)

Suicide Prevention App (SPA)

This App is a tool to guide you through a risk assessment and response for any individual you may think is experiencing a mental health crisis.

The App is a support system to help you ask the right questions in a step-by-step process, and respond accordingly to the results based on the accuracy and truthfulness of the answers provided.

The App produces results from a compilation of currently validated measures and best practice modalities used in the mental health field.

The App does not provide a clinical diagnosis, nor does it justify the means to secure an involuntary psychiatric hospitalization.

The App is designed to bridge the gap between people in need of mental health services and the service providers already in place.

NEA.BPD works with families and persons in recovery, raises public awareness, provides education to professionals, promotes research, and works with Congress to enhance the quality of life for those affected by this serious but treatable mental illness.

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a serious psychological and psychosocial disorder where people have extreme difficulties regulating their emotions. Problems include intense and volatile emotions (such as shame, anger, sadness or anxiety), chaotic relationships, impulsivity, unstable sense of self, suicide attempts, self-harm, fears of abandonment, and chronic feelings of emptiness.With effective treatment and support, data show that most people with BPD can make great progress, with important gains even in one year across a variety of problem areas. Many will no longer meet criteria for BPD. Similarly, data show that with help, family members also report big reductions in grief and feelings of burden, as well as an increased sense of mastery and family satisfaction. Over time, 80% of BPD sufferers reduce their symptoms.

Bully Online

Bully Online

One of BullyOnLine’s main benefits has always been felt by people who were suffering very unfair, often underhand and devious treatment at work, by revealing to them that their experience had a name and was predictable, and they were not to blame for it. Similarly, it has taught people who were beset by unprecedented psychological conditions that they could not explain, about the relationship between bullying, stress, anxiety, depression and other illnesses. The website has enlightened, validated and empowered bullied people for almost two decades. As well as describing bullying in considerable detail, Tim Field studied the characteristics of the people behind the bullying, and it was his settled belief that many displayed character traits in common with classic psychopaths.
