Aaron Rodgers hit Jimmy Graham in the second quarter for the game's only touchdown as the Packers tripped the Bears, 10-3 in Chicago.

How High Heat Can Impact Mental Health

Sep 4, 2019

Jeanetta Churchill is blasting the air conditioning in her Baltimore row house. A massive heat wave just swept through the city, with temperatures topping 100 degrees. "I don't even want to see what my power bill is this coming month," she says.

Keeping cool in the summer months isn't just a matter of comfort, says Churchill. It helps her manage the symptoms of her bipolar disorder. Churchill says if she doesn't keep her house cool enough to sleep through the night, she can spiral into a manic episode with fits of rapid talking, irrational purchases, or even suicidal thoughts.
