A Psychologist Has Created A Photo Series To Help People Talk About Mental Health

“I wanted to visually portray this anguish for those who’ve never suffered with it,” said Douglas Amorim. This post may contain images some may find distressing. Psychologist Douglas Amorim, from Cuiabá, Brazil, has created a photo essay called "Depressive Intimacy" to draw attention to issues of mental illness and suicide. Each photo in the essay depicts a type of emotional manifestation. The photo above is about the feeling of emotional blunting, reflecting the phase of depression in which the person feels unable to do the most trivial things, like getting out of bed or brushing their teeth. Leomax Lester Amorim says that the biggest complaint his patients have is that their friends and family don't understand what they're going through, "I wanted to make people who suffer feel understood, and urge them to seek help," said Amorim to BuzzFeed Brazil. This photo illustrates the feeling of having turned into an object, and the loss of the sense that one's self h..

This Is What Life Is Like When People Think You’re The Child Of A...

When your mother is Asian and your father isn’t, it’s automatically assumed that you’re the daughter of a gold digger. Rebecca Hendin / BuzzFeed I REMEMBER the first time I noticed someone staring at me. I was seven, standing with my parents on the side of a road waiting for the traffic to clear in Lidcombe, the Sydney suburb where I grew up. When I finished looking to my left and right, just like my parents had taught me, I locked eyes with a woman. She was middle-aged and had light skin, just like my father. She stared at me as I held hands with two people of different colour, one Caucasian and the other, not. The other was my mother, who is Filipino. That look told me all I needed to know: in the eyes of some, I am different. That same year, at my school’s end-of-year concert, I discovered that my classmate with a Filipino father and white Australian mother didn’t receive the same looks. Her mother was plump, and light skinned like my father, and her father was short, and mel..

Key Members Of The Intelligence Community Say They Haven’t Been Briefed On The Flynn...

Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who stepped down Monday as US national security advisor. Pool / Getty Images WASHINGTON — Key members of the intelligence community and Congress have been kept in the dark over counterintelligence investigations into Trump’s inner circle, underscoring concern of a disconnect between Trump and his national security apparatus. “I still don’t know who got [those intercepts]” one high-ranking US intelligence official said, referring to reported transcripts of a call between ousted National Security Advisor Mike Flynn and the Russian Ambassador to the US. The official said they weren’t sure whether the intercepted phone call — where Flynn reportedly talked with the ambassador about sanctions — was based on FBI intelligence, NSA intercepts, or whether the call between Flynn and the Russian Ambassador was collected under a FISA warrant. Further, the official said, it was unclear whether the intercepted phone call was picked up as part of a formal counterinte..

The National Security Council Is A Mess And Flynn’s Successor Will Have To Fix...

Deputy National Security Advisor K. T. McFarland, now former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and now-acting NSA Keith Kellogg in the Oval Office Jonathan Ernst / Reuters WASHINGTON — For those in US national security circles, there are three ways the next national security advisor can go: he can sink, he can clash, or he can bring the body he is meant to lead back into the policy fold after three weeks of tumult under outgoing Ret Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. The three leading contenders to replace Flynn, who resigned late Monday after clashing with Vice President Mike Pence over the content of his phone calls with the Russian ambassador, collectively personify those options, some national security observers believe. Ret. Lt Gen. Keith Kellogg, the interim adviser, may find it difficult to keep up with the strong personalities already around President Donald Trump, three US officials told BuzzFeed News. They worry that, should he become the permanent replacement, he could keep th..

The “Myth” Of Factory Jobs Coming Back To America

Pool / Getty Images Donald Trump has made clear that he wants his presidency to be about jobs — more specifically, his "bold plan to create 25 million new American jobs in the next decade" and "bring good-paying jobs to our shores and support American manufacturing, the backbone of our economy." Nobody knows exactly how that will work — and many believe part of it is simply not going to happen. "The idea that somehow there will be this big employment surge in manufacturing is a myth," economist Jeffrey Sachs told BuzzFeed News. The claim that manufacturing is still the backbone of the US economy is wrong, he said — it only employs about 8% of the workforce. Could it employ more Americans? As the Trump administration pushes to bring factories back to the US, many of the manufacturing jobs overseas are currently being replaced by machines — meaning bringing them home won't do much for workers. In his new book Building the New American Economy, Sachs lays out his argument for where..

More Trump Aides Will Leave With Michael Flynn, Source Says

Chris Kleponis / AFP / Getty Images Other members of the National Security Council staff that ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn assembled over the last two months will be following him in his exit from the White House — including his deputy, a Trump administration source told BuzzFeed News. The departure of K.T. McFarland, who was appointed in December to serve as the number-two person on the NSC and chair of the body's deputies committee meetings, was first reported in the New York Times. Joining her are other senior directors, the source said. "Whoever the new national security adviser is should be able to pick his own team," the source told BuzzFeed News. The expectation that Flynn's team will leave with him runs counter to what White House officials told the NSC just this morning. At a meeting on Tuesday, NSC staff was told that no one senior was being asked to leave, according to a second source, including McFarland. "KT is staying," NSC spokesman Michael..

US Allies In Europe Have No Idea “What The Fuck Is Going On” With...

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg Yves Herman / Reuters BRUSSELS — Already concerned by the Trump administration's erratic approach to the trans-Atlantic alliance, European security services have been shaken by the resignation of US National Security Advisor Michael Flynn over allegations he lied about his contacts with Russian diplomats, amid increasing concern that the new US administration is pursuing an uncomfortably close relationship with NATO's foremost rival, Russia. Flynn’s resignation Monday night immediately sent European officials into a frenzy of attempting to determine what the change of the president’s top national security advisor would mean as the Atlantic alliance has already been struggling with understanding how the new president will approach a litany of complex European situations from the expansion of NATO to the war against ISIS to concerns about an expansionist Russia. "I was hoping you could tell me what the fuck is going on over there,” sai..

With Flynn Gone, Where Does Trump Go On Russia?

Win Mcnamee / Getty Images WASHINGTON — As retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn trudges away from the National Security Council, David Cattler’s job gets a lot harder. Cattler, according to two people with knowledge of the NSC, was hand-picked with Flynn’s blessing to manage the Russia portfolio for the NSC, despite a lack of expertise on the Kremlin. With the departure of Flynn — who has made no secret of his affinity for Moscow, and has been thought to be one of the driving forces behind the Trump administration’s approach to the Kremlin — where Trump and the NSC go on Russia is a glaring question mark. Flynn spent the better part of the last month staffing up the NSC with intelligence hands like Cattler, who was announced as an NSC addition early this month. Whether Flynn’s team will stay in place now that he’s gone remains to be seen. Being a “Flynn” person, one former military intelligence analyst said, could mean a whole host of things. “That could mean [Cattler] loves to fight terror..

Flynn’s Resignation Has Officials Across The Middle East Bracing For More Chaos

Carlos Barria / Reuters ISTANBUL — Top US allies in the Middle East said they were concerned about signs of chaos within the Trump administration after the resignation of Michael Flynn from the post of national security adviser less than a month into the job. One Middle East official agreed with the description of the turmoil in Washington as “fitna,” which means sedition in Arabic, a loaded term that refers to the violent struggle that marked the Shia-Sunni split in Islam. But officials were also confident that the US system would quickly stabilize and maintain focus on top priorities, like defeating ISIS and confronting Iran, which Flynn put on notice after a ballistic missile test in one of his first acts as national security adviser. Few if any leaders in the Middle East publicly commented on Flynn’s departure, but American adversaries were likely heartened by the chaos in Washington. A commentator on Iran's state-run Press TV called Flynn's resignation “unfortunate for ..
