Infographic: How to overcome the stigma of postpartum depression

Last month, actress Hayden Panettiere talked about her struggles with postpartum depression on national television. The 26-year-old appeared on “Live! With Kelly and Michael” and admitted that the birth of her daughter, now a year old, has wreaked emotional havoc on her life.

“It’s something that’s completely uncontrollable. It’s really painful, and it’s really scary, and women need a lot of support,” Panettiere said.

This week, news broke that Panettiere had checked into a treatment center for professional help.

Communicators can use this infographic to educate people about the emotional fragilities that can occur after a woman gives birth. “Baby blues” are a milder form of PPD and can last up to two weeks. Women who have prolonged symptoms should seek professional help.

Signs of postpartum depression include:

  • Insomnia

  • Loss of appetite

  • Intense irritability and anger

  • Decreased libido

  • Feelings of shame or inadequacy

  • Overwhelming fatigue

It’s interesting to note that PPD affects as many as 10 percent of fathers in the first year, too.

Infographic: Confronting suicide as a public health issue

Nearly 110 people commit suicide in the U.S. every day. This self-inflicted violence has gotten the attention of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC is working with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to help people better understand how depression and anxiety may lead to death.

The CDC website deems suicide a public health issue, because it can have detrimental effects on individuals, families and communities. Though its causes are often determined by complex multiple factors, the goal of suicide prevention is simple, says the CDC: to reduce risk factors and increase coping skills that promote resilience.

In September, health professionals promoted Suicide Awareness Month. On Oct. 10, dozens of “Out of the Darkness Walks” organized by the AFSP will be held nationwide. Community and campus walks, along with an overnight excursion, are planned as the group works toward its goal of reducing the annual suicide rate 20 percent by 2025.

Consider these statistics:

  • Men are four times more likely than women to commit suicide.

  • For children ages 10 to 14, suicide is the third-leading cause of death.

  • Nearly 60 percent of men use firearms to kill themselves; 35 percent of women have ended their lives by poisoning.

AFSP’s infographic shows the severity of the problem:

Infographic: Fall season can trigger asthma in nation’s 7 million kids

September and the fall season can cause flare-ups in asthma, especially for the 7 million children afflicted with the respiratory condition.

Dr. Giovanni Piedimonte of Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine says that when school gets underway, physicians see a significant increase in patients suffering asthma attacks. Students are exposed to an increase in germs and are more susceptible to upper respiratory infections, he says. This, in turn, inflames airwaves and can trigger asthma attacks.

Changes in weather are also to blame for a spike in asthma attacks among children and adults. This infographic says 25 million people in the U.S. suffer from asthma. Based on the following stats, communicators can develop some new marketing and messaging for patients:

  • An asthma diagnosis is five times more likely to occur before age 20 than in later years.

  • Lifestyle factors such as obesity, smoking and living in urban areas are linked to asthma.

  • Exercise in cold, dry conditions often cause flare-ups.

Infographic: Fireworks safety tips for the Fourth

The July Fourth holiday and the summer months invite a slew of injuries from misuse of fireworks. Adult men suffer the most harm during this time.

As the U.S. celebrates freedom and patriotism, there’s an increase in emergency room visits around Independence Day.

The most common wounds that health care providers deal with are burns and lacerations.

The Consumer Product Safety Council’s new infographic on fireworks safety says:

  • Nearly 70 percent of fireworks injuries in 2014 occurred in the month surrounding the July Fourth holiday (June 20 through July 20).

  • More than 35 percent of people injure their hands when using explosives.

  • Some 20 percent of people hurt by fireworks suffer head injuries, including damage to their faces and ears.

To best protect adults and kids from injuries this season, law enforcement and health care officials encourage people to view professional fireworks shows, rather than igniting their own fireworks.

For those gathering in their neighborhoods to use bottle rockets, sparklers and firecrackers, communicators can share the CPSC tips. Take a look:

Cavities can develop before a baby’s teeth are actually showing. To ensure proper dental care, parents and caregivers must be educated on the topic.

Communicators can share the information from Mortenson Family Dental with patients. Highlights include:
