Eric D. Lawrence and Phoebe Wall Howard and Jamie L. LaReau Detroit Free Press Published 4:30 PM EST Feb 8, 2019 John Dingell was a staunch defender of the auto industry, a statement that perhaps undersells the impact of a man credited with helping save the industry during its darkest days. As the longest-serving member of Congress, Dingell, who died Thursday, had a role in shaping American life through legislative efforts involving health care, the environment and civil rights, but as a bulldog for the auto industry and its workers, the Dearborn Democrat's efforts were both applauded and criticized. Marick Masters, a business professor at Wayne State University and director of The Labor Studies Center, said Dingell was a champion of the auto industry because he was a champion of working people. “He believed the auto industry was essential to building a middle class and a high quality of life for working people in Michigan and across the … [Read more...] about How Michigan’s John Dingell helped save the auto industry

Matthew Usher Photography Ahead of International Men’s Day, writer Cory Varney shares his battle with anxiety and depression and reveals why talking about mental health issues is so vital, particularly if you are struggling. Let’s paint a picture: you’re a man. You’re a man and you have broken your leg. You can’t do your job. You can’t go about your day-to-day life. Not to mention, your leg really, really hurts and the longer it goes without getting sorted, the worse it could potentially get.Despite struggling with a broken leg, you don’t tell anyone, you don’t want to ask for help and you decide that you’re just going to get on with it by yourself.It sounds absurd, doesn’t it?

Kim Kozlowski The Detroit News Published 11:53 PM EST Nov 13, 2018 When Morgan Valley was 16, she started wanting to stay in bed all day. She worried a lot, didn't want to talk to anyone and even had suicidal thoughts. Valley, who thought her struggles were related to bullying or some other experience, went to see a counselor, and realized her depression was linked to the sexual assault she endured during treatment by Larry Nassar, the former Michigan State University doctor convicted of sexually abusing patients.
