This is Dr. Cortney Warren's superb attempt of explaining why we should be "Honest liars". We can experience great positive emotional gains with self examination and with the understanding of why we even fool ourselves in the first place. Honest liars -- the psychology of self-deception: Cortney Warren at TEDxUNLV

World Health Organization "WHO" just released the first of it's kind: "First WHO report on suicide prevention".  The amount of suicides worldwide are staggering and more importantly preventable with the right resources. Over 800,000 or 1 person per 40 seconds dies from suicide a year and only 28 countries out of up to 198 countries have clear national prevention strategies. We all must do a better job in getting help to those who need it. http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/releases/2014/suicide-prevention-report/en/
