When asking people about their concerns with air pollution, most admit that they have a concern. When asking people about their concern with water pollution, the same applies. However, when I ask people about body pollution, many do not know what I am talking about. What are Inhalants?   Inhalants are chemicals that produce fumes (vapors) usually at roomtemperature and that can produce mind altering effects when inhaled by the body. Some people abuse them for a high, however, some  people just do not realize the dangerous effects of these chemicals.

A synthetic drug is drug with properties and effects similar to a known hallucinogen or narcotic but having a slightly altered chemical structure, especially such a drug created in order to evade restrictions against illegal substances.

Examples of synthetic drugs include bath salts and synthetic marijuana. Bath salts will mimic synthetic hallucinogens while synthetic marijuana will mimic the effects of the chemical properties contained in THC or marijuana.

Non-suicidal self-injury is the act of deliberately harming your own body, such as through cutting on yourself or through burning yourself. It is typically not meant as a suicide attempt. Rather, self-injury is an unhealthy way to cope with emotional pain, intense anger and frustration.

The occasional experience of sadness and depression occurs during the life course of most people and virtually everyone in his or her life has been depressed at one time or another. Depression is a normal response to loss or disappointment. When depression persists and/or becomes so severe that it significantly disrupts a person’s world, depression may become pathological. Normal depression is characterized by a brief period of sadness, grief, or dejection in which disruption of normal functioning is minimal.
