  • This Veterans Day :: U-M Psychiatry and Depression Center Newsroom
    we had to endure These and many others are still imprinted in my mind down to the last detail Paul Clement receiving a commendation I stayed with my Airborne Infantry unit until I was wounded in 1968 After spending three months in a hospital recovering from my wounds I was stationed at Fort Polk Louisiana As a Sergeant E 5 I took over Headquarters 3rd Detachment Company After 13 months of hard work I was able to turn the company around When we had an important inspection by the Inspector General we were the only Headquarters Company to pass it I was very proud of my company and received a letter of commendation for that I got married to a wonderful woman in 1969 A year later after three intense years with the Army I got out of the military At that time veterans had no one to help us or guide us in real life It was a confusing time for me As individuals we had to find out everything for ourselves as opposed to the highly structured military ways Civilians were not very kind to veterans back then which made the transition much harder The only good that came from that rough transition time was that the country learned from the way they treated Vietnam veterans what had to be done to help new veterans returning from their deployments and getting out of the military That s why giving back to my fellow veterans on Veterans Day or any other day is very important to me I know what it is like not to have the support when making that transition During my adult life I have helped fellow veterans dealing with PTSD and assisted them on how to get help I am a member of the Chippewa County Veteran Board that helps choose the county s service officers I also serve as the Treasurer for my local DAV chapter and am a life member of the VFW and American Legion Now as a Volunteer Veteran with the Buddy to Buddy Volunteer Veteran Program I also support service members at the Sault Ste Marie Michigan Army National Guard armory and veterans in my local community Volunteer Veteran Paul Clement One of my proudest moments was serving with my Army Airborne Infantry unit Because we spent so much time training and fighting together we were and still are a very tight group We stay in touch and have reunions every year If someone is in trouble we do whatever is needed to help them With Buddy to Buddy we extend that sentiment beyond being there for my just former unit members As a Volunteer Veteran once I earn a young soldier s trust they share things about their personal life they may not feel comfortable telling their squad leader or platoon leader I take that very seriously In the program we have many resources available to help the service members making the transition from military to civilian life and

  • Stem cell research offers new hope for unlocking the secrets of bipolar disorder :: U-M Psychiatry and Depression Center Newsroom
    far five lines have been created The goal O Shea says is to develop 30 cell lines 20 from people with bipolar disorder and 10 control subjects Creating each line is a painstaking and expensive process We often think of stems cells being used in therapies to treat disease but this is a great example of stem cells usefulness for studying the mechanisms of disease O Shea says The iPS cells renew themselves so they re an unlimited source of material and offer hope to individuals with bipolar disorder Still the researchers caution new treatments spurred by this work could be a decade or more away Bipolar disorder formerly known as manic depression affects 5 7 million adults in the United States It is caused by chemical imbalances in the brain and marked by significant changes in mood thoughts energy and behavior Because bipolar disorder runs in families research at U M has focused on studying disease genes There is no single gene that causes someone to become bipolar but the disease has its roots in genetic vulnerabilities The Prechter Bipolar Genetic Repository already houses more than 1 500 genetic samples from people with bipolar disorder and healthy controls from studies at U M along with collaborating sites Johns Hopkins Stanford Cornell and Penn State It is the first independently funded bipolar genetics repository in the nation In addition to sharing the knowledge between the different universities confidential coded DNA repository samples and clinical information will be made available to scientists worldwide to accelerate and share clinical breakthroughs in evaluating and treating bipolar disorder The Prechter longitudinal study has already collected more than five years worth of data I m really proud that over the last 10 years my husband s legacy has grown to include the strides we re making to understand bipolar disorder and find new treatments Wally Prechter says Bipolar is like any other illness cancer diabetes heart disease and deserves the same urgency That lack of effective treatment is a big reason for the high risk of suicide or suicide attempts among people with bipolar disorder says McInnis Anywhere from 5 percent to 15 percent of bipolar patients will attempt or commit suicide sometime in their lives Depression caused by Heinz Prechter s bipolar disorder affected his whole being Wally Prechter says He was extremely exuberant and happy and very very optimistic to the point that I thought Wow I ve never met anyone like that But when he was depressed it was to the point that he would stay home and just sit in a chair and look out at the river she says The memory of how her brilliant husband was reduced to such a low unable to tell anyone what he was going through is part of what continues to drive her today U M Health System CEO and Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs Ora Hirsch Pescovitz M D points to the research as a great example of the strides that can
