  • The Savanna-IQ Interaction Hypothesis states “The finding of an association between progressively increasing risk of bipolar disorder and high arithmetic intellectual performance is rather surprising” Tiihonen wrote, explaining the arithmetic test requires not only mathematical skill but rapid information-processing for the purpose of successfully completing the timed exam. High scorers with such rapid processing power may also share a tendency to experience mania, a state of high focus and psycho motor activity. The Savanna-IQ also explains the correlation of people with higher intelligence tending to self medicate with alcohol and drugs more than the average person. https://personal.lse.ac.uk/kanazawa/pdfs/RGP2010.pdf
  • The World Health Organization states that over 800.000 people die every year due to suicide, and that suicide is the second leading cause of death in 15-29-year-olds. There are indications that for each adult who died of suicide there may have been more than 20 others attempting suicide. Early identification and effective management are key to ensuring that people receive the care they need.
