Phone Apps May Soon Predict Teen Depression

Phone Apps May Soon Predict Teen Depression
 

Rising rates of depression among American teenagers and young adults have led to a major question: Could the same devices being blamed for causing depression be used to find it?

Studies have linked heavy smartphone use with worsening teen mental health. But as teens spend time on sites like Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube, they also leave digital paths that may offer signs about their mental wellbeing.

Experts say possible warning signs include changes in writing speed, voice quality, word choice and how often a child stays home from school.

There are more than 1,000 smartphone “biomarkers,” said Dr. Thomas Insel. He is former head of the National Institute of Mental Health. He has become a leader in the smartphone psychiatry movement.

Researchers are testing smartphone apps that use artificial intelligence, or AI, to predict depression and possible self-harm.

But there are still issues to address, including privacy issues and making sure children give permission to be closely followed.

Still, app developers say that effective, widely available depression-detecting apps may arrive soon.

Using smartphones as mental health detectors would require permission from users to download an app. They could take back their permission at any time.

Nick Allen is a psychologist at the University of Oregon. He is one of the creators of an app being tested on young people who have attempted suicide.

Allen says the biggest barrier right now is learning what the mental health crisis signals are among all of the information available on people’s phones.

Suicide rates have risen in recent years in the United States. Suicide is now the second leading cause of death for people between the ages of 10 and 34. By 2015, rates among teen girls rose to 5 suicides in every 100,000 people. And, for boys, it is 14 in every 100,000.

A recent study suggested a rise in smartphone use has probably worsened the crisis.

People with mental illness, Insel said, usually get treatment “when they’re in crisis and very late... We want to have a method to identify the earliest signs.”

If smartphones can become effective predictors, app developers say the goal might be to offer automated text messages and links to assistance, or digital messages to parents, doctors and first responders.

Facebook is already doing what it calls “proactive detection.” Last year, after a suicide was broadcast on Facebook Live, the company trained its AI systems to look for words in online posts that could predict possible self-harm. Friends’ comments expressing concern about the user’s wellbeing are part of that detection system.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg announced in November that the site has helped first responders quickly reach around 3,500 people in the past year. But the company did not offer details on what has happened to those people since the incidents.

Ongoing research on the issue includes a Stanford University study of about 200 teens. Many of the teens are at risk for depression because of bullying, family issues or other problems. Teens who have been studied since grade school get an experimental phone app that asks them questions about their mood three times a day for two weeks.

Laurel Foster, who is 15, is one of the teens from the study. She admits she feels stressover school and teen friendship pressures. She says depression is common at her San Francisco high school. She said using the smartphone app felt a little like being spied on. But, she added that so many websites are already following users’ behaviors.

At the University of California, Los Angeles, researchers are offering online counseling and an experimental phone app to students who show signs of at least minor depression on a test. It is part of a larger effort launched in 2017 by the university to battle depression in its students. About 250 UCLA students agreed to use the app during their first year.

Alyssa Lizarraga, who is 19, is among those being studied. She has had depression since high school. Lizarraga has worried about her heavy use of smartphones and social media. She said comparing herself with others online sometimes causes her sadness. But she believes using smartphones to identify mental health problems might help push people to seek early treatment.

At the University of Illinois’ Chicago campus, researchers are using crowdsourcing to test their experimental phone app. Anyone can download the free app, and nearly 2,000 have so far. All agreed to let the researchers follow things such as their typingbehaviors. Dr. Alex Leow, a professor of psychiatry and bioengineering at the university, helped develop the app. The study is for people 18 and up, but Leow said it could also be used for children if successful.

Along with studies at universities, technology companies such as Mindstrong and Verily -- the tech health division of Google -- are testing their own experimental apps.

Turkish President Displease About Slow US Withdrawal from Syria

January 08, 2019

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan speaks to the media in Ankara, Turkey, Jan. 8, 2019.

Turkish President Displeased About Slow US Withdrawal from Syria
 

Turkey’s president has criticized the United States national security advisor for his comments about a planned U.S. troop withdrawal from Syria.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke Tuesday in Ankara. He said U.S. national security advisor John Bolton “made a serious mistake” in setting conditions for Turkey’s military after the U.S. withdrawal. Erdogan also said that Bolton met with Turkish officials in Ankara Tuesday but left Turkey without holding expected talks with the president.

Last month, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw its troops from Syria.

The 2,000 U.S. troops are in Syria to fight the Islamic State militant group. A spokesman for the Defense Department, Commander Sean Robertson, said that they have “an approved framework for withdrawal.” He said commanders are now carrying out the withdrawal. But he added, “That framework is conditions-based.”

Robertson said the Defense Department would not discuss details about the action because of security concerns.

In December, administration officials estimated that the withdrawal would take about 30 days. But diplomatic and military officials have pushed back that time period.

Before his visit, Bolton said that Turkey must plan military action with the U.S. He also said that U.S. troops would not withdraw unless Turkey guaranteed that Kurdish fighters in the area would be safe.

The Kurdish YPG militia are a U.S. ally in the fight against the Islamic State. The group was troubled by the plans for a U.S. withdrawal.

Erdogan has said he would deal with the YPG in the same way as he would the Islamic State. He told the ruling AK Party in parliament: “If they are terrorists, we will do what is necessary no matter where they come from.”

Turkey considers the YPG to be part of the Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK, which is banned in the country.

Erdogan said Turkey had reached a clear understanding with Trump.

Reuters reports that a high level Turkish official said Bolton had asked to see Erdogan and that his earlier comments may have influenced the meeting’s cancellation.

Since Trump’s announcement, U.S. and coalition warplanes have bombed some of the last remaining Islamic State positions in Syria.

Officials said the bombing campaign has reduced the group’s communications abilities by almost half.

Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces have also taken the towns of Hajin, Abu Hassam and Kashmah from the Islamic State.

However, the Kurdish YPG fighters continue to be the subject of tensions between Turkey and the U.S.

Turkey also opposes the U.S. giving its bases to Kurdish fighters when the withdrawal takes place.

During his visit, Bolton was joined by the top U.S. military officer General Joseph Dunford and other officials.

When should parents not allow screen use by children?

Transcript

Young people today grow up surrounded by digital entertainment and information on multiple screens, whether via computer, smartphone or television.

In its guidance to parents, the Royal College says the popular view that time in front of a screen is toxic to health has essentially no evidence to support it.

Professor Russell Viner, President, Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health
Many things are harmful to us. Crossing the road is harmful. Even reading, which we think of as a really important thing, actually is a bit of a sedentary occupation that can keep you up at night. So we think that there's a balance to be struck. There are harms from screens. But actually, screens bring us great opportunities and we have to balance those.

The guidance says parents with healthy, active children should not worry greatly about computer and smartphone use, although it recommends no screens for an hour before bed, in part because the light can slow the release of the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin.

The Royal College says families should negotiate screen time limits with their children, based on individual needs and how much they impact on sleep, physical and social activities.

Did you get it?
When should parents not allow screen use by children?

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health's recommendation is that parents don't allow the use of screens for an hour before children's bedtime.

Did you know?
University of Manchester researchers say higher levels of cyan – a colour between green and blue - keep people awake. The researchers want to produce devices for computer screens that allow users to control cyan levels.

Child dies as malaria outbreak hits Maniq tribal people

national January 10, 2019 12:15

By Thanyawee Chansuksri 
The Nation

A child has died and at least five others are bed-ridden following an outbreak of malaria that has hit a group of Maniq or Mani tribal people in the forest in Phatthalung's Pa Bon district over the past two months.

The group, known as the "Rak Pa Bon" Maniq people, have had more frequent visitors from the outside world since they changed from their tradition of relocating every 20 to 30 days to once every six to seven  months. They have also adopted some aspects of a city-dwelling lifestyle and diet. 

There are concerns the outbreak could become chronic as their longer stay in one place can result in an accumulation of garbage and lack of hygiene.

Maniq people - commonly known as Sakai and are among the world’s last hunter-gatherer societies - dwell in Banthat Mountain Range's forest areas of Yala, Narathiwat, Phatthalung, Trang and Satun. 

 

The population of 500 is the only Negrito ethnic group in Thailand who cannot speak Thai. 

In the past, the Maniq would treat illnesses by themselves as per the tribal wisdom and familiarity with herbs but herbal plants have been diminishing  due to the shrinking forestland.

The tribe now needs help from the outside world to tackle ailments. 

The Interior Ministry's Provincial Administration Department and the National Health Security Office (NHSO) last year began to assist Maniq people for Thai nationality applications based on bloodline, to help them access healthcare and welfare. 

As of August, 2018, a total of 312 Maniq people had obtained Thai ID cards and thus registered with the NHSO healthcare scheme.

A man from Chiang Mai, in northern Thailand, has shared his story of online blackmail in a Channel 7 TV News report. He says it’s a warning for Thai men to beware of attractive foreign women.

The man, a dance teacher from Chang Khan sub-district, says he was befriended by an attractive foreign woman on Facebook. The woman initiated the contact by sending him a friend request, to which 29 year old Thanadon Patthong was happy to accept.

The pair chatted about dancing, and soon they had exchanged Line application ID’s and continued their conversation.

Screenshots of their Line conversations show the girl being upfront asking the victim “do you like sexy girls?” to which he simply replied “every man likes sexy girl”.

It was here that things got a little more heated. The woman decided to take of all her clothes and masturbate.

She then tried to persuade Thanadon to masturbate too but claims that he didn’t do it and ended the call.

Shortly after the dance teacher was contacted again by the woman who revealed she had made a recording of his face and was going to blackmail him.

The femme fatale wanted 50,000 baht in exchange for not sharing the video with friends and family and having to deal with the shame.

Thanadon decided not to pay and instead went public to help warn others.

During the conversation the woman indicated that she was in Macau, and eventually clarified what was happening by saying that she was ‘not a girl’ but a ‘professional scammer’.

The story on Facebook has gained plenty of responses from other men about similar encounters, apparently falling victim to their carnal needs without their Bullshit Detector functioning properly.
