Nick Gordon Admits He Needs To Go To Rehab During His Dr. Phil Intervention Interview!

Your Reaction?

The first step is admitting you have a problem…

And that's exactly what Nick Gordon did on Wednesday's tell-all episode of Dr. Phil!

Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend and his mother Michelle chatted with the talk show host about the scandal on Friday, but this is the first we're getting to see of it.

While part one of the interview-turned-intervention was strange, to say the least, part two at least gave Nick a chance to take some responsibility for his actions.

In fact, he even went as far as saying that he knows he needs to be rehabilitated!

We guess that's some sort of a silver lining, right?

Ch-ch-check out the continuation of Nick's bizarre behavior (above)!!!

It's amazing how sometimes all it takes is one person to bring about real change!

It also usually helps to start an online petition.

That's how some body positivity folks got Facebook to remove their "feeling fat" option from its status drop down box.

Catherine Weingarten and the group Endangered Bodies started campaigning online, sending out a petition through Change.org, trying to get Facebook to remove the option.

The petition read:

Ryan Phillippe Reveals His Depression

no title

Ryan Phillippe has played many tortured characters in his career, but it turns out that he can be one himself.

In a revealing interview for Elle posted last Friday, the 40-year-old opens up about his history of depression.

The Secrets And Lies star admits:

"You know, depression has been a huge obstacle for me ever since I was a child. As you get older I think it decreases some, but I'm just innately kind of a sad person. I'm empathetic, and I take on the feelings of others and transpose myself into the position of others."

However, the hunk acknowledges that his internal sadness contributes to his unique sense of humor:

"I'm way funnier than people know me to be. And it's a dark humor, like a gallows humor. I think that's where, if you do carry any of that sadness or depression, your humor does tend to be a little darker than most people. And the greatest comedians do—trust me. I know so many of them. And they're depressed and they're dark and they have this incredible gift of humor to offer others and also, probably, therapeutically themselves."

We applaud Ryan for opening up about such a personal issue, and we hope it encourages others to share their stories!

This is fantastic and necessary.

Facebook has begun to roll out an update to its servers with a tool that they hope will be a big suicide prevention aid.

The new tool will allow users to flag content that seems concerning to them and if the posts by a certain user seem like they may be thinking about harming themselves, Facebook will contact the concerned party with three options.

It will offer to allow them to contact the friend, contact another friend for help, or contact a suicide prevention hotline.

But this option will only happen after

Filed under: Kate MiddletonMental Health

no title

Children's mental health should be every parent's number one priority.

As a mother herself, Kate Middleton totally understands how important it is for all kids to have a healthy childhood!

A healthy childhood means less of a chance for a youngster to grow up with mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression.

The Duchess of Cambridge teamed up with Place2Be, a charity who's mission is to help make a difference in school for children, for this powerful PSA in honor of the UK's first Children's Mental Health Week.

There's some sort of stigma that comes with these mental health disorders and the Duchess is urging parents to put their fears away and simply ask for help.

Woman Divorces Husband After He Refused To Send Their Newborn Son With Down Syndrome To An Orphanage

no title

This is one amazing dad.

Samuel Forrest recently experienced one of the greatest pleasures when he witnessed the birth of his son Leo in a hospital in Armenia.

However, the son was immediately diagnosed with Down Syndrome and it turned out that his wife and her family were NOT going to keep the child and instead were almost immediately going to place him in an orphanage. They made the decision while Samuel was waiting outside of the room to see his son for the first time.

But when Samuel finally held his son, he knew he couldn't do what his wife wanted. So she gave him an ultimatum.

Seriously.

Here's how Samuel explained it:
