Psychologist proves life is livable for depressed, suicidal patient
using Good News Network

I anticipate this may become the most popular site in the world….close anyway.

I’m a clinical and police psychologist. A 13 year-old boy was depressed and suicidal as he entered my office. He cited TV news as proof that there was no point to living, "Everything is out of control, it’s all bad news, people are killing each other, terrorism, corruption, kids being slaves."

After I let him cry, I explained how TV news worked — that it didn’t reflect reality accurately — and I showed him your site. He started to cheer up. He smiled and gave me a hug. Life was okay again.

Your site is proof of good news in the universe. Thanks.

Respectfully,
