There has been some hype recently (see here, here, or here) about a helmet that has caused “mystical experiences” among individuals at a Dutch music festival. Sounds pretty cool, and a little unbelievable, that a helmet could cause such a reaction. What makes it even more unbelievable is it was just a skateboard helmet with […]

Mark: Let’s chat about the whacky world of sleep! How was getting to sleep last night, Danielle? Danielle: Last night was actually not too bad! I’ve found if I’m in bed before 11 and can keep in a relatively regular routine of doing that, falling asleep and waking up is ok. It’s when life gets in the way […]

The EHAB team has been hard at work on MBx—a prototype chatbot to help answer your mental health questions. It’s a pretty much a baby right now, but you can ask it some mental health questions and see what happens. Like any baby, it’ll learn from you (even if it just seems to drool a […]

I’m wary to entertain that there is a debate on this or that it’s a “theory”. It’s like debating a theory that the Easter Bunny causes mental illness–if the onus is on me to prove that the Easter Bunny does not, in fact, cause mental illness, I must admit I have no proof she’s not […]
