Mental health is important to everyone. No one wants to be unable to control his or her thoughts or to be a burden to others. Although many people with mental disorders have been given the opportunity to lead more normal lives through counseling, psychotherapy, and medical treatment, the search for permanent healing of mental illness continues. In this issue, the Sentinel points the way to this much-desired goal.

The author of "Transformed mental health" tells of depression and hallucinations overcome. "The right arrangement of one's thoughts" provides practical tools for dealing with mental disorders. "Fighting forgetfulness," this week's editorial, brings out the importance of resisting the belief that forgetfulness is a natural part of growing older or is inescapable for other reasons.

Also this week, teens—and others—who are dealing with cliques will find helpful ideas in "Who am I?" And under the healing "Media Watch," you'll find "The media and 'the advancing spiritual era,'" which provides some specific ways to avoid just being a "media spectator." The author also discusses how the media, rightly used, can improve our world.
