Another pandemic challenge for nurses: Sleep problems - Difficulty sleeping due to work stress and scheduling contributes to nurses' anxiety and depression
More than half of nurses had difficulty sleeping during the first six months of the COVID-19 pandemic—and getting less sleep increased their odds of experiencing anxiety and depression, according to a new study led by researchers at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing. “Nurses are already at risk for higher rates of depression and insufficient sleep compared to other professions, thanks to the stress of patient care and the nature of shift work. The pandemic seems to have further ...

Study reveals fourfold range in rates of mental health problems among US children based on relational and social risks
A large multi-year study based on 2016-2019 data found that children facing relational and social risks are more likely to have mental, emotional, or behavioral health problems, but the negative impact of these problems on child resilience, self-regulation and school engagement can be offset by protective factors such as strong caretaker-child connection and family resilience. The study, led by researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, also found that children who were ...

The best way to fix a sad mood: Whatever you think works best: Study finds advantage to believing you’re using your strengths
What's the best way to improve a sad mood? It may be whatever skill you think you're best at, a new study suggests. Think you're good at mindfulness techniques? Then that may work best for you. Or do you believe a more cognitive approach is your strength? Then use that. Researchers found that people who were in a sad mood improved more quickly when they used a mood-improving method that they were told was their strongest skill. These participants improved more quickly than ...

How do the effects of childhood abuse extend into middle age?
Childhood sexual abuse can lead to depression, anxiety, cardiovascular disease and other health problems later in life. Not all abused children experience these problems, however, and researchers are working to understand whose health is affected and why. In a new article in the journal Psychoneuroendocrinology, a team of researchers led by faculty in Penn State’s College of Health and Human Development examined how the production of the stress hormone cortisol differs from childhood to ...

Stress associated with an increased risk of getting Covid-19, study finds
A new study has found that people who experienced increased stress, anxiety and depression at the start of the pandemic, were at greater risk of getting Covid-19. The research, published in Annals of Behavioral Medicine, found that greater psychological distress during the early phase of the pandemic was significantly associated with participants later reporting SARS-CoV-2 infection, a greater number of symptoms and also more severe symptoms.

Could childhood inflammation or infection be a cause of depression and psychosis?
A growing body of research suggests that early-life infection, inflammation, and metabolic changes could contribute to psychiatric disorders – perhaps via effects during critical periods of brain development. New evidence on how "immunometabolic" risk factors in childhood may affect the development of depression and psychotic disorders in adulthood is presented in the January/February special issue of Harvard Review of Psychiatry. If confirmed, this line of research might lead to ...

Scientists may have discovered why severe depression affects women and men differently
A team of Université Laval scientists may have discovered why severe depression affects women and men differently, according to a study published today in Nature Communications. The researchers examined the brains of people with depression at the time of death and discovered alterations located in different parts of the brain for each sex. They also identified a potential depression biomarker in women.

Abnormal thyroid hormone levels during pregnancy may increase the risk of preschool boys’ behavioral problems
Thyroid hormone levels during pregnancy may predict preschool boys' emotional and behavioral problems, according to a study published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. Thyroid hormones are crucial for normal development of a baby's brain and nervous system. During the first trimester -- the first three months of pregnancy -- a baby depends on its mother's supply of thyroid hormone, which comes through the placenta. Levels of maternal thyroid ...

Findings open the way to more precise diagnoses and treatments of Alzheimer’s disease
An international team lead by Case Western Reserve University's School of Medicine has made a significant breakthrough in understanding why Alzheimer's disease progresses so rapidly in some people that they die within three years. The researchers found a link between strains of misshapen and fast-replicating tau protein and accelerated cognitive decline -- a critical result that illuminates the variations in Alzheimer's disease and could help lead to more precise diagnoses ...

Study finds later school start times prevent sleep deprivation for parents of middle and high school students: Bedtimes remained constant while parents of adolescents slept later into the morning
A new study by researchers at National Jewish Health finds that parents of adolescents got more sleep when middle and high schools start about an hour later, while the sleep habits of parents of younger children were unaffected by earlier elementary school start times. The study is the first-ever to examine parent sleep as an outcome for changing school start times.

Clinical trial reveals that omega-3 fish oil supplements do not help prevent depression: Findings help clarify mixed results from previous studies
Results from the largest clinical trial of its kind do not support the use of fish oil supplements—a source of omega-3 fatty acid—to help prevent depression. The findings are published in JAMA by a team led by investigators at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH). Experts have recommended omega-3 supplements for reducing the recurrence of depression in some high-risk patients, but there are no guidelines related to the use of these ...

Stigma surrounding depression drops for first time in US, but increases for other mental illnesses
For the first time since national data have been tracked in the United States, stigma toward people with depression has dropped significantly, according to a study by Indiana University researchers. However, stigma levels for other mental illnesses remained stagnant and, in some cases, have increased. The findings can help shape treatment of those with mental illness and have an impact on anti-stigma programs and policies to help people find support, the researchers said.

1 in 5 parents say their holiday stress level negatively affects their child’s enjoyment of the season
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – happy family gatherings, joyful reactions to gifts under the tree and carrying on cherished traditions. At least that’s the picture many parents imagine creating for their children during the holidays. But for many moms and dads, trying to live up to that ideal may bring stress and anxiety that takes away from the holiday magic for their kids, a new national poll suggests. One in five parents believe their child has unrealistic expectations for the ...

Small measures can be a big help for children of mothers with depression
Several new studies among Syrian refugee families in Turkey and families with infants in Sweden and Bhutan show that children of mothers in poor mental health risk falling behind in their cognitive development. However, very small changes can suffice to break this correlation and enable the children to return to their normal developmental level. Having plenty of people around them and an available community are two of the most important factors for helping children, in all three countries.

Prescribe fewer antidepressants, and for shorter periods, doctors advised: Trial data don’t often assess outcomes that matter most to patients
Doctors should prescribe fewer antidepressants and for shorter periods of time, because of the ongoing uncertainties about their effectiveness and the potential severity and durability of the withdrawal symptoms associated with them, suggests a review of the evidence on antidepressant use, published online in the Drug and Therapeutics Bulletin. The use of antidepressants is also associated with a range of side effects, while the clinical trial data mostly don’t assess the outcomes that ...

Virtually guided exposure therapy improves outcomes in patients with post-traumatic stress disorder, preliminary study finds
Virtually guided prolonged exposure therapy reduced post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms more effectively than prolonged exposure alone in a pilot study of 40 civilians and veterans. The study was conducted at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and in partnership with the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center. Given that up to 8% of the U.S. population and 20% of veterans are affected by PTSD, this study’s findings are important in expanding the reach of therapy for PTSD.

Dog ownership was associated with fewer negative psychological impacts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a US survey
Major life events, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, affect psychological and physiological health. Social support, or the lack thereof, can modulate these effects. The context of the COVID-19 pandemic offered a unique opportunity to better understand how dogs may provide social support for their owners and buffer heightened symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression and contribute to happiness during a major global crisis.

Digital therapy for prenatal insomnia may prevent postpartum depression
A digital version of cognitive behavioral therapy, or dCBT, that previously had been shown to reduce insomnia during pregnancy may also prevent postpartum depression and reduce insomnia and anxiety in women up to six months after they give birth, according to a new study by researchers at UC San Francisco. The study, which appears in the current issue of the journal Sleep, is unique in showing that non-depressed women who received dCBT for insomnia during pregnancy also slept ...

Researchers identify brain signals associated with OCD symptoms, paving way for adaptive treatment
In an effort to improve treatment for obsessive compulsive disorder, a team of researchers has for the first time recorded electrical signals in the human brain associated with ebbs and flows in OCD symptoms over an extended period in their homes as they went about daily living. The research could be an important step in making an emerging therapy called deep brain stimulation responsive to everyday changes in OCD symptoms.

Stress makes life’s clock tick faster. Chilling out slows it down
Scientists in recent years have developed ways to measure biological age by tracking chemical changes in DNA that occur naturally as people age but occur at different times in different people. These so-called “epigenetic clocks” have proved to be better predictors of lifespan and health than chronological age. In a new study, Yale researchers used one such clock, appropriately named “GrimAge,” to ask two questions: How much does chronic stress accelerate that biological clock?

Minimal Effort Required: A Ten-Minute Run Can Boost Brain Processing
Running may be a useful activity to undertake for better mental health. University of Tsukuba researchers have found that only ten minutes of moderate-intensity running increases local blood flow to the various loci in the bilateral prefrontal cortex—the part of the brain that plays an important role in controlling mood and executive functions. These findings may contribute to the development of a wider range of treatment recommendations to benefit mental health.

CBT: A way to reshape your negative thinking and reduce stress
Wouldn't you like to stop your stressful, anxious thinking in its tracks? Turns out you can, and while you're at it, you can make yourself feel and act better too. That's the basis of cognitive behavioral therapy, which burst onto the psychological scene in the 1960s and has been gathering accolades ever since. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, CBT, as is it called, is designed to "uncover unhealthy patterns of thought and how they may be causing self-destructive ...

Sitting more linked to increased feelings of depression, anxiety
As people adhered to stay-at-home orders or self-isolated during the early months of the COVID-19 outbreak, daily commutes turned into shuffles between the bedroom and the living room. Clicking Zoom links erased time spent walking to meeting rooms, and Netflix spilled into time otherwise dedicated to the gym. In short, a lot of people suddenly became more sedentary during the onset of the pandemic. Recently published research found people who continued to spend a higher amount ...

Despite understanding the concept of mindfulness, people are applying it incorrectly, research finds
Mindful awareness is about both accepting and engaging with life’s challenges, and that’s what popularized concepts of mindfulness tend to miss, new research has found. Studying popular concepts of mindfulness, the researchers found most laypeople are confusing the practice with passive acceptance of problems—a misconception scientists say ignores the important work of engaging with them. Originating in Buddhist religious practice, much of the mindfulness movement’s popularity grew ...

Just a game? Study shows no evidence that violent video games lead to real-life violence
Mass media and general public often link violent video games to real-life violence, although there is limited evidence to support the link. Debate on the topic generally intensifies after mass public shootings, with some commentators linking these violent acts to the perpetrators’ interests in violent video games. However, others have pointed out that different factors, such as mental health issues and/or easy access to guns, are more likely explanations.

Depression, anxiety may be linked to c-section risk among pregnant women
Depression and anxiety in pregnant women may be connected to the type of delivery they have, new research suggests. Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders have already been associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes like low birth weight and preterm birth. And now, a new Michigan Medicine study finds that they may also be linked to significantly higher rates of first time cesarean deliveries among women who were otherwise at low risk of having one.
