Mental health and miracle watch
Lots of relevant stories have made the news in the week leading up to World Mental Health day, which takes place on 10 October.
The BBC reports a warning from psychiatrists that students' mental health is 'at risk'. The Guardian draws our attention to research by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development , revealing that stress is now the most common cause of long term sick leave in the UK.
And also in The Guardian, we meet Kim Noble, who has multiple personality disorder.
Remember last time I drew your attention to some of the headlines claiming disability cures? Well miracle watch continues. This week we read about 'human cloning' to make embryonic stem sells on the BBC, the world's first autistic mice in an attempt to shed light on the condition in the Daily Mail and The Sun introduced us to the viral video which shows a deaf mum's reaction on hearing her own voice for the first time.
