Where we live and sometimes "how" we live can negatively impact your health.  This article focuses on Rural Youth Suicide patterns.  That same sense of isolation and loneliness certainly can be present in a City or Suburban environment.

More from ANFA...

Construction on a new National Intrepid Center of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (NICoE) is complete.This 72,000 square foot Department of Defense (DOD) facility located at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland was opened in October 2010.

Currently, the space is being utilized for outpatient diagnostic and treatment services, as well as, research and testing of new protocols for comprehensive training and education to assist patients, providers and families.

Beginning in July 2008, ANFA began conversations with the DOD about sharing its knowledge from research taking place at UCSD Calit2 on navigation using conventional and prototype EEG devices in conjunction with virtual reality.

On separate occasions, DOD representatives have spoken with ANFA Board members Eduardo Macagno and Frederick Marks, along with project scientists Peter Otto and Eve Edelstein, and Scott Makeig, Director of the Swartz Center for Computational Neuroscience.

More on this research to come (from ANFA).

Oh, interesting.... We have shared on this topic before... See article from Provider Magazine and here is an excerpt :

"Functional decline is age-associated, not age-determined, and there is evidence that aging processes can be delayed if older people keep on doing physical exercise and continue challenging their brains. If they stop doing one or the other, functioning in one domain (for example, physical fitness) may decline faster than in others (cognition)"
