Firefighters With PTSD Likely to Have Relationship Problems: PTSD Interferes with Ability to Regulate Emotions, Causing Relationship Fallout
For firefighters, every day can be an emergency, rushing into flames and disasters as others can only hope to rush out. And make no mistake, it takes a toll. Exposure to such traumatic events throughout their careers places these first responders at heightened risk for the development of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and new research from the University of Houston First Responder Program, indicates that PTSD means trouble for their intimate relationships.

Pandemic drives use of telehealth for mental health care: OHSU researchers expect mental health counseling online will endure beyond the pandemic, call for caution to improve disparities in telehealth access
The COVID-19 pandemic likely permanently increased the delivery of mental health counseling through telehealth, according to new research from Oregon Health & Science University. The retrospective analysis was published today in the April issue of the journal Health Affairs. “Our study suggests that telehealth services for mental health counseling expanded significantly and is likely to stay,” said lead author Jane Zhu, M.D., assistant professor of medicine (general internal medicine ...

Exercise may reduce depression symptoms, boost effects of therapy
Exercising for half an hour may reduce symptoms of depression for at least 75 minutes post-workout and amplify the benefits of therapy, according to two new studies led by researchers at Iowa State University. “A lot of previous research on the effects of exercise on mental health, in general, have used very broad measures of wellbeing. What we were interested in, specifically, is: how does acute exercise – that is, one session of exercise in a day – influence the primary symptoms of ...

Therapy can support medication treatment for opioid use disorder: Counseling may help keep people in treatment
Receiving psychosocial and behavioral therapy alongside medications for opioid use disorder leads to better treatment engagement and continuity, according to Rutgers researchers. To better understand the role of psychosocial and behavioral therapy, the study, published in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment, examined services received by people in the first six months after beginning buprenorphine, a medication used to treat opioid use disorder. Researchers found that ...

One in four women experience domestic violence before age 50, analysis finds
Over one in four women (or 27 per cent) experience intimate partner violence before the age of 50, according to a worldwide analysis led by researchers from McGill University and the World Health Organization. The largest of its kind, the analysis covers 366 studies involving more than 2 million women in 161 countries. "Intimate partner violence against women -- which includes physical and sexual violence by husbands, boyfriends, and other partners -- is highly prevalent globally," says ...

New paper reveals impact of first lockdown on depression and anxiety diagnosis
The first COVID-19 lockdown in the UK, which began two years ago today on 23 March 2020, had a profound effect in increasing the prevalence of anxiety and depression among the general population, according to a new study. A detailed systematic review, conducted by psychologists at the University of Bath and published in the British Journal of Clinical Psychology, suggests that depression and anxiety levels in the UK jumped markedly as a consequence of restrictions and isolation.

Mindfulness alleviates post-gun violence trauma and depression: UC San Diego School of Medicine pilot study finds eight weeks of mindfulness training effective in reducing trauma, depression and stress in individuals grieving from gun violence
Gun violence is an epidemic in the United States, with more than 45,000 firearm fatalities in 2020 alone, a figure that has steadily risen over the past decade. But the impact of these tragic events does not end with the victims’ lives, as those who have lost loved ones to gun violence often suffer with lifelong post-traumatic stress (PTSD), depression and grief. Still, a lack of empirical research on gun violence leaves many unsure of how to effectively heal this psychological consequence.

A psychedelic drug, combined with intense therapy, improves PTSD symptoms
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects millions of people each year, mostly survivors and witnesses of terrifying or shocking events, such as warfare, assaults or disasters. Because existing treatments don’t work for everyone, new therapies are urgently needed. Today, scientists report results and follow-up data from a phase 3 clinical trial of a psychedelic drug, 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), known on the street as “ecstasy” or “molly,” combined with psychotherapy ...

Do 'behavioral psychedelics' help patients make lasting, positive change?
Despite their reputation as illicit drugs, psychedelics may find new, legitimate roles in treatment for anxiety, depression, stress disorders, addiction, and other mental and behavioral health problems. But ensuring they do requires developing rigorous, standardized methods to study and apply the results, according to a new report. In a perspective published in Frontiers in Psychiatry, researchers from UCLA Health and Harvard Medical School coin the term “behavioral psychedelics” ...

A new study published in the journal Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics describes the first randomized controlled trial of a new therapeutic approach that seeks to build empathic imagination for caregivers. Currently support groups are the most widely used psychotherapy intervention for family caregivers. “Although ...

Music combined with auditory beat stimulation may reduce anxiety for some: Combined treatments appear to help people with moderate trait anxiety better than music alone
Treatments integrating music and auditory beat stimulation are effective in reducing state anxiety in some patients, according to a new study published this week in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Adiel Mallik and Frank Russo of the Ryerson University, Canada. Anxiety has been steadily increasing, particularly in the adolescent and young adult populations, over recent decades. Studies have previously shown that listening to music can reduce anxiety, perhaps even more ...

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy benefits people with depression through promoting self-kindness
New research shows that Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) can help promote self-kindness in people with a history of depression, thereby putting their bodies in a state of safety and relaxation. The research, led by the University of Exeter with collaboration from the universities of Oxford and Magdeburg, indicates that MBCT may help break the cycle of highly critical thoughts and feelings of worthlessness, which often lead people with depression to relapse.

Pregnant women have lingering depression despite antidepressant treatment: First study to show pregnant and postpartum women experience depression, anxiety even with medication
Despite using antidepressants (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), many pregnant women had lingering depression and anxiety symptoms throughout their pregnancy and postpartum, reports a new Northwestern Medicine study. The study also found anxiety symptoms are common in treated depressed women, with symptoms worsening over time in some women. This is the first study to measure the different trajectories of depression and anxiety in pregnant and postpartum women.

Exposure to great outdoors boosted mental health during pandemic: Study finds those who spent more time in green spaces reported less depression, anxiety
People exposed to more green space during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic reported significantly less depression and anxiety, according to new University of Colorado Boulder research published March 2 in the journal PLOS One. The study also found that, at a time when mental health problems soared due to financial woes, supply shortages and nonstop news coverage of the virus, people sought solace in the great outdoors, with one-third spending more time there than ...

Connecting stress, weight, and social anxiety in early adolescence
Between the end of childhood and the beginning of adolescence, there is a critical window of time referred to as “peripuberty”. This transitional period involves developmental changes in both fat tissue and in the brain in which both can be re-programmed by exposure to stress which can cause long-lasting changes in the size of fat cells (adipocytes) size and composition, as well as social behavior. In a new study, scientists led by Professor Carmen Sandi at EPFL, have found that stress ...

Results from a new clinical trial demonstrate that an eight-week mindfulness-based therapy -- Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement (MORE) -- decreased opioid use and misuse while reducing chronic pain symptoms, with effects lasting as long as nine months. This is the first large-scale clinical trial to demonstrate that a psychological intervention can simultaneously reduce opioid misuse and chronic pain among people who were prescribed opioid pain relievers.

Do pets have a positive effect on your brain health? Study shows long-term pet ownership linked to slower decline in cognition over time
Owning a pet, like a dog or cat, especially for five years or longer, may be linked to slower cognitive decline in older adults, according to a preliminary study released today, February 23, 2022. "Prior studies have suggested that the human-animal bond may have health benefits like decreasing blood pressure and stress," said study author Tiffany Braley, MD, MS, of the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor and a member of the American Academy of Neurology.

One in three young people say their mental health and wellbeing improved during COVID-19 lockdown measures, with potential contributing factors including feeling less lonely, avoiding bullying and getting more sleep and exercise
As the COVID-19 pandemic swept the world, many countries imposed strict lockdown measures, with workplaces and businesses closing and people forced to remain at home. Measures also included school closures, with exceptions for young people whose parents were classified as essential workers and those considered ‘vulnerable’, for example children under the care of social services and those in families or social situations deemed by schools to be of concern. Several studies have ...

Where mental health help is scarce, telehealth makes a big difference
When the nearest psychiatrist’s office is dozens or even hundreds of miles away, a virtual connection may be enough to help people living with serious mental health conditions get effective care through their local primary care clinic, a new study shows. The randomized study of just over 1,000 people with post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder or both conditions shows that most patients engaged with either of two types of telehealth. The study also gives insights into which ...

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 ...

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.
