How do I know if I’m depressed

    It’s important to know how to spot the symptoms if you are struggling to cope, and how to distinguish depression from other mental-health issues. Here’s a guide to how to tell if you are suffering from depression and how to get the help you need. I feel down at the moment, am I depressed? Most of us feel down from time to time, but mental health experts say you may be depressed if you feel low for more than two weeks. Head of information at mental health charity Mind, Stephen Buckley, told the M.E.N: If you’re feeling low for a couple of weeks or more without much change in mood, or such feelings return over and over again, this could be a sign of depression. Depression is a low mood that lasts for a long time, and affects your everyday life. What are typical symptoms of d...

NHS 111 put suicidal callers on hold until they hung up

    The Sun placed a reporter at the NHS 111 call centre at St Charles Hospital in Ladbroke Grove, west London, which provides 24-hour support for callers from 11 boroughs in north, west and central London. A Department of Health spokesman said: The NHS is now urgently investigating and if any wrongdoing whatsoever is found, including criminal actions, we will want to see the police and relevant NHS regulators alerted as necessary.

After North Korea attacks: An ominous Asian future imagined

    With the world's collective gaze and most certainly U.S. surveillance satellites fixed on North Korea's next potential nuclear test, it is past time to consider the horror that the so-called hermit kingdom could inflict on its neighbors if it actually went to war. Thanks to one of the largest standing armies on the planet with over 1.2 million men under arms and another 7.7 million in reserve and with chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons carried by over 1,000 missiles, Pyongyang has the capability to kill millions of people and start a conflict that could quickly escalate into the next global catastrophe. How might such a war begin? The likely spark would involve some sort of unexpected crisis. For example, let's say in the not-too-distant future a North Korean missil...

Three wanted over asylum seeker attack

    Police have released images of three people they want to speak to after a teenage asylum seeker was beaten and left unconscious. The two men and a woman are being sought in connection with the attack on a Kurdish Iranian in Croydon, southeast London.

The boy was left with a fractured skull and a blood clot on his brain. He remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition. His two friends managed to escape with minor injuries. Detectives investigating the assau...
