Health Is Vital

Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out. Our county health and crisis line is 1-855-278-4204.

**Are Mental Health Disorders Inherited?
Interesting article which reenforces what I learned in school 30 years ago.  We can inherit a predisposition to a mental disorder.  However the predisposition is triggered by environmental issues--stress or a traumatic event.  Most mental illness manifests later in life.  So the answer to the above question is yes, there is a genetic component, but that is not everything.
