As part of a new Illinois birth certificate access law approved in May, a new Web site, , is now available to help more than 200000 Illinois adopted adults with helpful information to secure their original birth certificates. The law, signed by Governor Pat Quinn on May 21, 2010, allows adopted adults born before 1946 to apply immediately for a copy of their birth certificate and other adults in November 2011.

Most health centers miss the cues because they don't screen for depression... a problem ***s say is not just on college campuses. According to the most recent CDC high school Youth Risk Behavior Survey, 6.3 percent -- almost 15000 high school students -- attempted suicide in the 12 months before the survey. It is the third leading cause of death among young people. How can parents, teachers and even fellow students help... before bad things happen?
