Lon Woodbury's insight:

My experience working in an emotional growth school in the 1980s (Forerunner of therapeutic boarding schools) was when students with asthma had a lot of physical exercise and fresh air, and groups designed to lance negative emotions, many of them no longer showed signs of asthma and could throw away their inhalers.  Those are stress reducing activities, so this study makes some sense to me. -Lon

I just thought this was interesting.  I always thought that asthma was tied to allergy based eczema morphing into asthma.  The impact of stress is fascinating.

Ben Smith: 'I felt like I had no feelings, so with self-harm I felt pain'

Ben Smith: 'I felt like I had no feelings, so with self-harm I felt pain' | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Ben Smith started cutting himself when he felt that nobody cared about him.

 

He was 14 and in Year 10 at a West Auckland high school. When he was about 8, he had found out that the man he thought was his dad was not his real father. Suddenly he understood why he was always treated differently from his two younger brothers, who were his father's children.

"However, the highest rates of mental illness are still found in  children from the very poorest families. Luthar has conducted  previous research exploring the “draining, restrictive  effects” of poverty. Income inequality has been found to  cause stress, frustration and family disruption, filtering into  further problems".
