Youth suicide: More early detection, better coordination are needed
Although progress has been made in recent years, the matter of youth suicide in Quebec still needs to be more effectively addressed. In fact, a new study shows that more lives could be saved through early detection and increased public awareness and information sharing among professionals.

Obesity and Depression Often Twin Ills, Study Finds: Nature of connection isn't clear, but both conditions can be treated, experts say
Depression and obesity tend to go hand in hand, U.S. health officials reported Thursday. The combination was so common that 43 percent of depressed adults were also obese, according to the report. That association was even more prevalent among those taking antidepressants: 55 percent of those patients were also obese.

More Evidence That Exercise May Help Fight Depression: But low mood can be a barrier to physical activity, study finds
Physically active people are less likely to show signs of depression, a new study finds. And exercise can help improve mood in people who already feel depressed, but there's a catch: Depressive symptoms appear to be a barrier to physical activity, the British researchers said. The findings, based on 11,000 adults ages 23 to 50, correlate with previous research suggesting that exercise can have a powerful effect on depression, although it's far from a cure-all.

Testing parents' patience, while treating kids' problem behavior
Humans have a focus on the short term. We are more interested in a potential benefit if we can get it now. The ability to delay gratification has been studied in children with the “marshmallow experiment”: a child can have one treat now, or two if he or she can wait a few minutes without gobbling the first treat. Psychologists and economists have shown that similar trends can be observed and measured in many spheres of life. They call the tendency for the perceived value ...

In-home visits reduce drug use, depression in pregnant teens
Intensive parenting and health education provided in homes of pregnant American Indian teens reduced the mothers’ illegal drug use, depression and behavior problems, and set their young children on track to meet behavioral and emotional milestones they may have otherwise missed.

Teenage Girls Are Exposed to More Stressors that Increase Depression Risk
Adolescence is often a turbulent time, and it is marked by substantially increased rates of depressive symptoms, especially among girls. New research indicates that this gender difference may be the result of girls’ greater exposure to stressful interpersonal events, making them more likely to ruminate, and contributing to their risk of depression.

Childhood psychological abuse as harmful as sexual or physical abuse
Children who are emotionally abused and neglected face similar and sometimes worse mental health problems as children who are physically or sexually abused, yet psychological abuse is rarely addressed in prevention programs or in treating victims, according to a new study.

Gay and Bisexual Youth Can Thrive With Positive Family Relationships
Gay and bisexual youth who are supported by their family and feel comfortable talking to them about their lives are less likely to become involved in high-risk sexual behaviors, according to a recent Rutgers study. “Youth had limited engagement in unsafe sex when the families were able to have open, reciprocal discussions that were low in disagreement. Close family connections seemed to provide a context for safety,” says Michael LaSala, associate professor and ...

Researchers at the University of Montreal and its affiliated CHU Sainte-Justine children's hospital are warning parents that difficult eaters could have underlying psychological issues, as they have found that restrictive behaviors can appear before puberty.

Why do women struggling with low sexual desire not seek treatment?
Low sexual desire is common among both pre- and post-menopausal women. It can cause personal distress, harm relationships, and have a negative impact on body image and self confidence. Yet few women seek medical care for this condition, and the reasons are explored in a timely article in Journal of Women's Health, a peer-reviewed publication from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers.

Majorities of these groups also believed that children’s aggressive behavior can be ...

Weight-Loss Surgery May Not Always Help With Depression: About 4 percent of obese patients report negative mood changes months after procedure, study finds
While most severely obese people get a mood boost after weight-loss surgery, some may have a recurrence of depression symptoms months after they have the procedure, a new study finds. The study included 94 women and 13 men who were asked about their mood before having weight-loss surgery, and again six and 12 months after the procedure.

Sense of invalidation uniquely risky for troubled teens
A study of 99 teens hospitalized out of concern about suicide risk found that a high perception of family invalidation – or lack of acceptance – predicted future suicide events among boys, and peer invalidation predicted future self harm, such as cutting, among the teens in general.

Mini-Strokes May Lead to PTSD, Study Finds: Fear, depression and anxiety might follow a transient ischemic attack, researchers say
A mini-stroke may not cause lasting physical damage, but it could increase your risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a small, new study suggests. Almost one-third of patients who suffered a mini-stroke -- known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA) -- developed symptoms of PTSD, including depression, anxiety and reduced quality of life, the researchers said.

Strong working memory puts brakes on problematic drug use: University of Oregon-led team finds that impulsive adolescents who lack focus are more likely to face substance-abuse issues
Adolescents with strong working memory are better equipped to escape early drug experimentation without progressing into substance abuse issues, says a University of Oregon researcher. Most important in the picture is executive attention, a component of working memory that involves a person's ability to focus on a task and ignore distractions while processing relevant goal-oriented information, says Atika Khurana, a professor in the Department of Counseling ...

Many Kids With ADHD May Be Missing Out on Talk Therapy: Study finds just one in four taking medication gets additional treatment
Only one of four American children who has health insurance and has been prescribed medication to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) also receives some form of talk therapy, according to a new study. The findings raise concerns that doctors may just be prescribing pills for behavior problems, rather than targeting kids' specific difficulties through judicious use of medication and therapy, said lead author Dr. Walid Gellad, an adjunct scientist at ...

Special Therapy May Help Relieve 'Complicated Grief': Standard depression treatment is less successful after a loved one dies, study finds
For people mired in grief after a loved one's death, a specially designed therapy may work better than a standard treatment for depression, a new study finds. The debilitating condition, known as complicated grief, is often mistaken for depression, but is a different problem altogether, researchers say. Sufferers from complicated grief have intense yearning and longing for the person who died that doesn't lessen over time.

How physical exercise protects the brain from stress-induced depression
Physical exercise has many beneficial effects on human health, including the protection from stress-induced depression. However, until now the mechanisms that mediate this protective effect have been unknown. In a new study in mice, researchers show that exercise training induces changes in skeletal muscle that can purge the blood of a substance that accumulates during stress, and is harmful to the brain.

Perfectionism is a bigger than perceived risk factor in suicide: Psychology expert
Experts are calling for closer attention to perfectionism's potential destructiveness, adding that clinical guidelines should include perfectionism as a separate factor for suicide risk assessment and intervention. 'There is an urgent need for looking at perfectionism with a person-centered approach as an individual and societal risk factor, when formulating clinical guidelines for suicide risk assessment and intervention, as well as public health approaches to ...

Walking off depression and beating stress outdoors? Nature group walks linked to improved mental health
They are common suggestions to remedy stress: You just need a breath of fresh air. Walk it off. Get out and see people.

Group nature walks are linked with significantly lower depression, less perceived stress and enhanced mental health and well-being, according to the study conducted by the University of Michigan, with partners from ...

Sibling bullying linked to later depression, self-harm
A new study has found that children who revealed they had been bullied by their brothers or sisters several times a week or more during early adolescence were twice as likely to report being clinically depressed as young adults. They were also twice as likely to say they had self-harmed within the previous year compared with those who had not been bullied.

Domestic violence likely more frequent for same-sex couples: Extra stress in same-sex couples may raise risk of domestic abuse
Domestic violence occurs at least as frequently, and likely even more so, between same-sex couples compared to opposite-sex couples, according to a new review of research. Abuse is underreported in same-sex couples due to the stigma of sexual orientation, researchers note.

One Dose of Antidepressant Changes Brain Connections, Study Says: Researchers eventually hope to predict who will respond to a drug and who won't
Just a single dose of a common antidepressant can quickly alter the way brain cells communicate with one another, early research suggests. The findings, reported online Sept. 18 in Current Biology, are a step toward better understanding the brain's response to widely prescribed antidepressants. Experts said the hope is to eventually be able to predict which people with depression are likely to benefit from a drug -- and which people would fare better with a different option.

A Wife’s Happiness is More Crucial than Her Husband’s in Keeping Marriage on Track, Rutgers Study Finds
When it comes to a happy marriage, a new Rutgers study finds that the more content the wife is with the long-term union, the happier the husband is with his life no matter how he feels about their nuptials. “I think it comes down to the fact that when a wife is satisfied with the marriage she tends to do a lot more for her husband, which has a positive effect on his life,” said Deborah Carr, a professor in the Department of Sociology, School of Arts and Science

Sunny Skies Tied to Suicide Rates: Austrian researchers find short-term sunshine increases risk, longer-term lowers it
Sunny days may be linked to suicide rates, but in a complicated way, new research suggests. In a study of more than 69,000 suicides spanning 40 years, Austrian researchers found two distinct correlations between sun-filled days and suicide rates. In the short term, sunny days were linked with an increase in suicide, but after two weeks of sunshine, the number of suicides dropped.

Parents' separation found to boost children's behavior problems, but only in high-income families
Before they reach young adulthood, most children in the United States will experience their parents separating, divorcing, finding another partner, or getting remarried. Research tells us that children have more behavior problems (such as aggression and defiance) when families change structure. Now a new study has found that behavior problems in children increased in families in which parents separated only in higher-income families, and that children's age also ...

Stigma as a Barrier to Mental Health Care
Despite the availability of effective evidence-based treatment, about 40 percent of individuals with serious mental illness do not receive care and many who begin an intervention fail to complete it.

Reacting to personal setbacks: Do you bounce back or give up? Rutgers researchers find the ability to persist may depend on how the news is delivered
Sometimes when people get upsetting news – such as a failing exam grade or a negative job review – they decide instantly to do better the next time. In other situations that are equally disappointing, the same people may feel inclined to just give up. How can similar setbacks produce such different reactions? It may come down to how much control we feel we have over what happened, according to new research from Rutgers University-Newark.

The yin and yang of overcoming cocaine addiction
Biology, by nature, has a yin and a yang -- a push and a pull. Addiction, particularly relapse, researchers find, is no exception. A new paper is the first to establish the existence of a brain circuitry that resists a relapse of cocaine use through a naturally occurring neural remodeling with "silent synapses."
