Dear Abby

Man’s fondness for porn is a turnoff for partner

DEAR ABBY: I met this man online a year and a half ago. We have been together ever since. There is a serious problem with him watching porn. When we met, I knew he was doing it when I was not with him. He knows I’m not happy about it, and he tried for a while to keep it hidden from me. More recently, he would watch it and then want to come get cozy with me.

New local study provides base for addressing mental health in area youth

A 2021 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that assessed mental health and suicidal behaviors from 2011 to 2021 in high school students across the United States indicated that 13% of high school girls had attempted suicide and 30% had seriously considered it. That jumped to more than 20% for LGBTQIA+ teens, and 45% of queer youth had seriously considered suicide. These numbers are alarming, and the CDC recommends the implementation of programs that support positive youth development to decrease suicidality and other mental health issues in youth. With the increase in mental health crises being experienced by youth and the need for programs to combat it, the Core Four Partnership between the city of San Marcos, Hays County, San Marcos Consolidated Independent School District and Texas State University conducted a Youth/Young Adult Community Needs Assessment in order to assess mental health, belonging and career readiness of local youth and young adults. It was also designed to assess the use of existing services and gaps or opportunities for new services and programs.
