Anxiety tormenting young in Limerick

first_imgEmail Eileen Hanley and Dr Cian Aherne, Jigsaw Limerick.NEW DATA released by the National Centre for Youth Mental Health, Jigsaw, shows that the top issue for more than one-third of young people going to the organisation for support in Limerick is anxiety.34 per cent of young people reporting anxiety as their biggest problem is in line with the national figures which shows that anxiety was the most common mental health difficulty among clients using Jigsaw’s service in 2017.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Other common mental health difficulties for Limerick youths include family problems (18 per cent), low mood (17.6 per cent), anger (13.6 per cent ), other including community/setting (13 per cent), stress (10.6 per cent), isolation/withdrawal (10 per cent), thoughts of self harm (9.6 per cent), parent/youth conflict (9 per cent), and suicidal thoughts/gestures (8.3 per cent).Clinical Coordinator of Jigsaw Limerick, Cian Aherne said, “Since we opened Jigsaw Limerick in June 2017, we’ve seen that the majority of young people come to us seeking help with issues around anxiety.“We spend a huge amount of time validating their feelings because they are happening for very good reason. Many of the factors behind them are not new: parental separation, traumatic experiences, peer pressure, exam stress, but we are also seeing the impact of issues more particular to life in 2018.“There is a deepening sense of uncertainty amongst young people we support in relation to their sense of identity and place in this fast-paced, evolving world. High expectations of self, are one key driver of anxiety which can be compounded by the expectations of parents, teachers and society at large.“However, if there is something positive that can be extracted from the rise in levels of anxiety it’s that young people today are so much more literate in terms of their mental health and wellbeing than they have ever been before.”The research also reveals that nationally a high percentage of 17– 25-year-olds who used the Jigsaw’s early-intervention model service reported a significant reduction in their psychological distress.“We’ve travelled quite a distance to a point where we’re seeing more and more young people who are comfortable articulating their feeling and seeking help. The very real challenge for us in Jigsaw, alongside other mental health services, is to ensure that help is available,” Cian added.Jigsaw is the National Centre for Youth Mental Health which is a charity that delivers a range of prevention and early intervention services to improve the lives of young people (aged 12-25) who are living with mental health issues.

With promising core, Bulls open season eyeing bigger things

first_img“You’re not going to hear (general manager) Gar (Forman) or I talk about wins or anything like that,” executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson said. “But the expectations are to see this team come together. … We feel we’re deep. We’ve got at least two deep at every position.”If Paxson’s message sounds similar to the one he delivered after last season, well, not much has changed since then.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissThough the Bulls hardly appear to be championship contenders, they believe they have the potential to make a jump after going 27-55, their worst finish since 2003-04. They are banking largely on improvement from within to start climbing in the Eastern Conference, starting with the season opener at Philadelphia on Oct. 18.That means Lauri Markkanen building on an impressive rookie season and Zach LaVine showing he really is a franchise cornerstone. It wouldn’t hurt, either, if Jabari Parker stayed healthy after signing with his hometown team in the offseason.

The son of a former NBA player, Parker averaged 15.3 points and 5.5 rebounds in four seasons with Milwaukee. He also tore the ACL in his left knee twice. Parker might be a bit of an odd fit since he figures to play more at small forward than power forward once Markkanen returns. But it’s a low-risk deal with the Bulls holding an option on that second year. Parker starred at Chicago’s Simeon Career Academy — the same school where former No. 1 draft pick and Bulls MVP Derrick Rose played — before going on to Duke and the Bucks.PITCHING INThe Bulls drafted Wendell Carter Jr. with the No. 7 overall pick. And they are banking on big things from the big man. The 6-foot-10 Carter averaged 13.5 points and 9.1 rebounds as a freshman at Duke last season while helping the Blue Devils advance to the Elite Eight. With his ability to hit from the outside and score down low, the Bulls see him as a strong complement to Markkanen.ON THE BENCHHoiberg comes into his fourth season with a 110-136 record and a roster more suited to his pace-and-space style. That’s something he didn’t have early in his tenure. It’s also something that’s changed the past two offseasons. And a younger roster is a better fit for Hoiberg, who had no experience as an NBA head coach when he was hired away from Iowa State in 2015.“The commitment that Fred and the players made this summer to improvement really are creating a culture with these young guys of playing hard, working together,” Forman said.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title LeBron in LA: Superstar begins next chapter with Lakers MOST READ View comments Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award MARKKANEN MENDINGThe Bulls expect Markkanen to miss the first few weeks because of a left elbow sprain. The 7-foot forward from Finland was injured at practice late last month, a blow for a rebuilding team. But the Bulls are expecting bigger things after he finished fourth among rookies at 15.2 points per game and second in rebounding (7.5) because of his work ethic and dedication in the weight room.“On the defensive end is where it will help him most, being able to play more positions comfortably,” coach Fred Hoiberg said.PAYING OFFThe Bulls didn’t wait long to match the $80 million, four-year offer sheet LaVine signed from Sacramento as a restricted free agent in July. Not a huge surprise. After all, the Bulls didn’t get LaVine, along with Kris Dunn and the rights to Markkanen, in the 2017 draft night trade with Minnesota for Jimmy Butler only to let him go after one season. Now, it’s time for the payoff from the two-time slam dunk champion. LaVine missed the first 42 games while recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and sat out the final 14 because of tendinitis in the same knee. He struggled to find his rhythm in between, averaging 16.7 points on about 38-percent shooting in 24 games. A major question is how he’ll fit with Markkanen and Dunn.ADVERTISEMENT In this Sept. 24, 2018 photo Chicago Bulls’ Zach LaVine (8) head coach Fred Hoiberg and Jabari Parker (2) pose for a photo during media day at the NBA basketball team’s facility in Chicago.

Bruce Harley’s Minisplit Tips

This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Start Free Trial Already a member? Log incenter_img Bruce Harley is a Vermont energy consultant and heat-pump specialist. To GBA readers, he is probably best known as the author of the Taunton book, Insulate and Weatherize — one of the best available books on residential energy retrofit work.As the recent Better Buildings By Design conference in Burlington, Vermont, Harley shared a wealth of information on ductless and ducted minisplits. The title of his February 8 presentation was “Real-Life Air Source Heat Pump Performance Testing: Results and Reasons.”Since Harley left his longtime job at Conservation Services Group, he’s been working as an independent consultant. Harley told the audience, “Now 90 percent of my work is related to heat pumps.” Asian manufacturers have developed models for cold climates Until recently, North American homeowners’ opinions of heat pumps were strongly influenced by the unimpressive performance of U.S.-made forced-air units designed for warm climates.Harley explained, “Air-source heat pumps got a lot of bad press in the 1980s. Occupants noticed they cost a lot to run because of the electric-resistance heaters. Back in 2012, when I wanted to install a ductless minisplit at my house in Vermont, a contractor told me, ‘A heat pump won’t heat your house in Vermont. Maybe if you were in Texas in Oklahoma.’”Japanese engineers have revolutionized the market for heat pumps, however, by improving their units’ cold-climate performance. “Ductless split-system heat pumps have been in mass production for 40 years,” Harley noted. “The technology has made steady advances. Now they are optimized for cold weather. It’s a rapidly growing market. Most of these heat pumps do not have an electric-resistance heater. Lots of people are installing one in an existing home with oil heat to offset the high energy bills.” last_img read more
