We are passionate about factual news delivered in an interesting and open-minded way. Our journalists bring you the latest in Health, Psychology, and Social Issues. Where applicable, we take a solutions journalism approach, which means we avoid "doom and gloom" stories that are focused solely on reporting problems. We believe that journalism should inform, inspire, and empower.
