Allahu Akbar is not a terrorist slogan
The Grand Mufti of Australia and New Zealand Dr Ibrahim Abu Mohammed told SBS Arabic24 that there was a need to “end misunderstanding” around the phrase Allahu Akbar, following the Sydney CBD stabbing which left one person dead. https://www.sbs.com.au/language/english/allahu-akbar-is-not-a-terrorist-slogan-calls-for-media-vigilance-over-labelling-of-arabic-phrase?fbclid=IwAR3_fmNunOx0q3CmWi-D-HyJYQ2Exsuo61OOMXnEjwPwh-9xY8ED1r8vdUQ

First Amendment Allows Church to fire Teacher...
Catholic church leaders in Indianapolis are citing the First Amendment as a defense to a lawsuit filed by a teacher who was fired because he’s in a same-sex marriage. The Archdiocese of Indianapolis asked a judge Wednesday to dismiss a lawsuit by Joshua Payne-Elliott, who worked at Cathedral High School for 13 years. The school fired him in June on orders from the archdiocese.https://time.com/5658745/catholic-church-first-amendment-teacher-fired/?xid=time_socialflow_facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=socialflow&fbclid=IwAR1lOz8b5I91ped8Gp7oxLqPZkhv_Pfh9XvKpimx0nUaIrt63B_CoJghtvU

Can chocolate cure depression?
A recent study published in the journal Depression and Anxiety has attracted widespread media attention. Media reports said eating chocolate, in particular, dark chocolate, was linked to reduced symptoms of depression. Unfortunately, we cannot use this type of evidence to promote eating chocolate as a safeguard against depression, a serious, common and sometimes debilitating mental health condition.https://www.sbs.com.au/news/insight/verdict-delivered-can-chocolate-cure-depression?fbclid=IwAR0mavG59XF4UkpmMBPTBBnAA840itoMOcWIgPKHpasApJKA3856GQ8_dUM

Schizophrenia Runs in My Family
On the morning of my 25th birthday, I looked at the wall calendar from my spot in bed, horizontal and snug beneath the covers. And I waited. I knew what turning 25 meant in my family. My mother, who has struggled with mental illness for the better part of her life, started hearing voices around the time she turned 25. Her paternal grandmother was a diagnosed schizophrenic. So was her biological father. My mother is certain that she has schizophrenia, though she has never been formally diagnosed. Partly because she doesn’t “do doctors.” Partly because she doesn’t have medical insurance.https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/01/fashion/psychosis-schizophrenia-family.html

Oregon Students Secure Mental Health Days
Oregon will allow students to take "mental health days" just as they would sick days, thanks to a new law high school students championed across the state. It's not coddling. The students behind the measure say it's meant to change the stigma around mental health in a state that has some of the highest suicide rates in the US. Mental health experts say it is one of the first state laws to explicitly instruct schools to treat mental health and physical health equally, and it comes at a time when educators are increasingly considering the emotional health of students. Utah passed a similar law last yearhttps://www.insider.com/oregon-students-mental-health-days-2019-7
