  1. Thank you Dr. Jen for sharing and being smart about ongoing care for our brains. Not a one and done fix-even with medication. It is about connection.
    I believe some aspects of our mental health system is learning that what we have done for a couple of decades is not working so well.

    The polyvagal theory.
    Remember the brain has neuroplasticty, it is pliable and can change for the better in most cases, just takes some work and focus. Just as if one had diabetes and has to be mindful of the treatment plan.
    Reach out, all who are suffering, as there are many of us out here who would welcome another to walk this often difficult journey.

  2. Please please please ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ everyone everybody look how ” depression ” and ” mental health ” hurting people including rich successful people for example Miss USA the lawyer jumping from Manhattan luxury apartments and today this man. But nobody take it seriously. There are millions of people struggling with mental health and depression. It is an extremely a sad news. It is preventable but no body cares. Rest in peace. May dear God gives his miraculous recovery to all his closest family.

  3. Jennifer, it is not out of the blue when you and him had just been divorced 2 weeks before. Divorce is betrayal. Divorce is a reason many people commit suicide. It is extremely devastating to people who love their spouse and their spouse does not love them back and choose to divorce. Suicide is not the answer, but to say that it was out of the blue is not true. Most people going through divorce or a hard breakups go through some level of suicidal thoughts.

  4. It’s funny how everyone so shocked. Famous or not, life still crazy hard. Sometimes mental health care ain’t enough. You have hourly sessions to treat annual problems. The problem is, there is no cure for depression. In my experience, MH only treats symptoms, they DO NOT fix the problem. When the symptoms become too much, “some” people really only see one way out. In the crazy world we live in, NOT VERY SHOCKING.
