The Dr. Phil show provides the most comprehensive forum on mental health issues in the history of television. For over a decade, Dr. McGraw has used the show’s platform to make psychology accessible and understandable to the general public by addressing important personal and social issues. Using his top-rated show as a teaching tool, he takes aim at the critical issues of our time, including the “silent epidemics” of bullying, drug abuse, domestic violence, depression, child abuse, suicide and various forms of severe mental illness.
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-19 year-old girls. It is the third leading cause of death among 15-19 year-old boys. However, suicides are preventable. A mother from Switzerland explains how she coped when her teenage daughter told her that she was thinking about suicide. During the testimony, we hear how the family sought help and the support that helped them get through this difficult time.

We both grew up listening to Linkin Park and it was one of Patrick’s favourite bands. We were so saddened to hear of Chester Bennington’s passing and really wanted to pay tribute to him with a cover. We both love this song, and it has been on our list of songs to cover for a long time.

Brooklyn Duo Bio:
Founded in 2014, Brooklyn Duo has quickly established itself as one of today’s most successful classical crossover ensembles. Through its creative arrangements and live video performances, the piano and cello duo has garnered a huge following, with over 450,000 YouTube subscribers, and over 150 million streams annually on platforms such as Spotify and Pandora Radio.
Members Marnie and Patrick Laird met while attending the Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival in Maine in 2006 and were married in 2012. Both worked as professional musicians after graduating from the Eastman and Juilliard schools of music, respectively; Patrick as a founding member of popular cello rock band, Break of Reality, and Marnie as principal pianist of the New World Symphony in Miami. In 2014, on a whim, the couple arranged and recorded two pop covers (Shakira’s “Empire” and John Legend’s “All of Me”) and released them on YouTube. Shakira noticed the duo’s cover of Empire and promoted it to her 130 million-plus fan base, saying: “We’re loving Brooklyn Duo’s piano/cello cover of #Empire! Great work guys.” The boost that resulted from that exposure and the positive response they were getting on YouTube encouraged the couple to continue creating videos.
Since then, Marnie and Patrick have released over 65 videos on their Brooklyn Duo YouTube channel and 7 albums of covers, spanning artists from The Beatles to Metallica to Taylor Swift (who also tweeted about them, saying their cover of her song “Blank Space” sounded “like a song people should walk down the aisle to”). In 2016, the couple started a second YouTube channel, Brooklyn Classical, with the goal of introducing classical music to a larger audience. With this new channel, Marnie and Patrick aim to showcase high quality, live performances of classical music. Brooklyn Classical often hosts high-profile guest artists, including the world-renowned Dover and Escher string quartets and percussionist Ivan Trevino.
In 2017, Marnie and Patrick partnered with Carnegie Hall and Ensemble Connect, a collective of some of the best young musicians in the U.S., to produce a cover of a-ha’s “Take On Me”. The video went viral and garnered millions of views in just a few months. Popular classical music stations Classic FM and WQXR regularly share Brooklyn Duo’s music on their social media pages, with Classic FM calling the duo “masters of the artfully planned pop cover.” One of their covers was also recently featured in an episode of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy.

Big Think and the Mental Health Channel are proud to launch Big Thinkers on Mental Health, a new series dedicated to open discussion of anxiety, depression, and the many other psychological disorders that affect millions worldwide.
Transcript – You know, it wasn’t until 1973 that the American Psychiatric Association, after a fairly lengthy period of debate, discussion, and advocacy, voted to remove homosexuality as a mental disorder. Discrimination, you know, comes in many forms. And the psychological and the social implications of those are, you know, they’re not insignificant. So if you do surveys of physicians and health care providers about their attitudes towards LGBT people, 20 to 30 percent say, you know, “I’m really not comfortable providing this kind of care.” Does one come out on an application to college or to medical school or to law school or, you name it. These are questions that people struggle with even to this very day. 90 percent or so of LGBT kids definitely say that they’ve experienced this kind of thing on, kind of on a daily basis. Whether it’s being told or being called “faggot” or whatever, made to feel badly because they’re different. These kinds of things over time, sort of add up.
Discrimination, actual and perceived, then this expectation that develops for those events, results in lower self-esteem, difficulty with relationships, difficulty with one’s own, feeling happy about one’s own life. There is probably a two and a half or so times likelihood of mental health disorders or problems among LGBT folks. Depression, anxiety, substance abuse in particular. In particular for women actually, about three and a half times rate of substance use disorders among lesbians and bisexual women. There are higher rates of, certainly attempted suicide among LGBT communities. Exactly how many of those are completed is harder to know. But I could certainly say just from our clinical work over the years, it’s certainly not an uncommon kind of scenario, unfortunately. There’s just no question that today is just 180 degrees different than the way it was when I was growing up in small towns in the Midwest. As a middle-aged man, suddenly I was able to fight in the armed services when DOMA went down in the 90s. Now, today, I can actually be married in all fifty states. The fact that that has happened over this period of, what, fifty years or so is really quite remarkable. As those negative attitudes lessen, I can’t help but think that there’s going to be lesser mental health problems among LGBT folks.
