(I recommend long social media breaks for everyone. It gives you more clarity, focus and perspective. It’s like walking out of a Slipknot concert, onto a beach.)

More importantly, I’m getting back to writing my next book now. To get the focus & headspace to write to the best of my abilities, I take 6 months a year off social media (in chunks). So I’ll be back on Twitter in June. See you all then!

Depressed & anxious people should never have been expected to solve the problem of depression and anxiety alone, or just with their families & doctors. This is a social crisis - that's why it has increased so much - and it requires a society-wide response.

A society of lonely people, taught to think life is about money, left to scream at each other through screens, will have a depression and anxiety crisis. If they are then told their pain is just due to a chemical malfunction in their skulls, that crisis cannot be comprehended.

We need to talk about the relationship between neoliberalism and depression. Ways of living that don't meet our underlying human needs increase depression - whether it's communism or neoliberalism. I've written about it here

It's appalling that most cannabis in the UK is now super-skunk, as reported by the BBC today - and this is entirely because of the fact we have banned this drug. I explained why in the Los Angeles Times:

Stigmatizing depression, addiction & anxiety makes them worse. It piles pain onto pain. I discussed this - & the way out of stigma - on NPR:

I know ppl who are censoring themselves b/c they don't want to be criticised on social media. I keep telling them - everything worth saying attracts criticism. If there's no opposition, it didn't need to be said. I gave a little talk about this in 2011:

I spent time in Rio & São Paulo favelas, for something I am writing, last year. I was stunned by the state repression and violence - now being stepped up.
