Although it has taken many years, society has finally acknowledged that mental illness has a physical connection, often in both cause and effect. In an article published in the Deseret News, Greg Bell reports that two of the most common types of mental illness, depression and anxiety,  are cloaked in problematic names. The numbers are stunning: Anxiety disorders affect 40 million American adults every year, about 18 percent of all adults. In the U.S., depressive disorders afflict nearly 10 million adults (over 4 percent) and almost 3 million adolescents. Anxiety and depression rob people of stability, positive relationships, happiness and even basic well-being.  The fortunate who have health insurance can usually get significant relief through medical and psychological treatment. But those without insurance or other coverage, especially the indigent, have far less access to treatment. For many thousands of indigent Utahns, treatment is hard to find. Utah’s counties are charged with providing mental health services to the public. Utah has over 60,000 people in the poverty gap who don’t qualify for Medicaid. Thus, the demand for services by people without Medicaid far outstrips what counties and charity care by hospitals and doctors can provide. Irrespective of traditional funding channels, our community must pull together to meet this scourge that afflicts hundreds of thousands of Utahns and develop funding sources to finance treatment of the poor and those of modest means for mental illness. Our elected officials must lead out on this. Each of us must demand of them that we address this problem.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
