Associations between school-, shooter-, and gun-level characteristics and the severity of school shootings demonstrates the need for evidence-based solutions to the ongoing school shooting crisis.

Social media-based movements like #BlackLivesMatter and #SayHerName have taken off over the past decade as a response to highly scrutinized police shootings of African-American people. Recordings from body cameras or bystanders are frequently posted online and shared by activists and others as a way to press for police accountability.
But those videos may also have deleterious effects on the mental health of young members of the same racial communities as the victims in those shootings, suggests a new study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health.

Sometimes it's a teen who got injured playing sports. Other times it's a student who banged his head in a seemingly innocuous fall or maybe was in a car crash.
Whatever the cause, the concussion cases that come in front of the Eugene Youth Concussion Management Team represent youths who are not able to completely return to school and their activities. While most youths fully recover from their injury, some have a complicated trajectory and require additional supports.
In addition to caring for their patients and children, about one in six physician moms report caring for a child, spouse, parent, friend or other person with a serious health problem, long-term illness or disability, a new study shows.
And those extra responsibilities are taking a toll on their health and rate of physician burnout.
Santi Ceballos doesn't know how to spell their drag name. They have never written it down. While attending a drag camp hosted by the local Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) last summer, someone suggested Santi go by the name "Sara Tonin." Describing the character as "very outgoing and extra," they decide after some reflection that Sara's first name doesn’t have an "H" at the end.
At first glance, the larger-than-life persona could easily describe Santi's real-life personality. After coming out as non-binary in September 2017, the Tucson middle schooler signed onto a lawsuit challenging a decades-old policy forbidding Arizona schools from discussing LGBTQ people in sexual education courses.
A severely ill Dutch girl widely reported by international media as having been "legally euthanized" in a clinic in the Netherlands died at home, apparently after voluntarily refusing to eat or drink and with no evidence that her death was assisted.

Mike Morrison hardly looks like a revolutionary. He's wearing a dark suit and has short hair. But we're about to enter a world of conformity that hasn't changed in decades — maybe even a century. And in there, his vision seems radical.
"We are about to walk into a room full of 100 scientific posters, where researchers are trying to display their findings on a big poster board," says Morrison, a doctoral student in psychology at Michigan State University.
Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation is expanding its teen mental health program to 20 more high schools around the country.
The program launched in eight U.S. schools last year, including at Valley High School in Las Vegas. The program, which was founded by Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, offers support to teens who are experiencing mental health issues or a crisis, such as suicide. It's a peer-to-peer program.
Momentum is growing for a nationwide movement to raise the legal age of tobacco purchase from 18 to 21. Experts say the widespread and worrisome teen vaping epidemic is a major catalyst—but so is support from e-cigarette and tobacco companies, which has some health groups feeling uneasy.
