Hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) risk factor for serious mental health issues: Linked to major depression, post-traumatic stress, anorexia nervosa, suicide attempts; vigilance required for those affected to ward off psychiatric problems, say researchers
The hyperactivity disorder, usually referred to as ADHD, is an independent risk factor for several common and serious mental health issues, finds research published in the open access journal BMJ Mental Health. It is associated with major depression, post traumatic stress disorder, the eating disorder anorexia nervosa, and suicide attempts, the findings show, prompting the researchers to recommend vigilance by health professionals in a bid to ward off these disorders later on.

Study confirms it: Opposites don't actually attract: A sweeping new analysis including data from millions of couples shows that birds of a feather flock together
Opposites don’t actually attract. That’s the takeaway from a sweeping CU Boulder analysis of more than 130 traits and including millions of couples over more than a century. “Our findings demonstrate that birds of a feather are indeed more likely to flock together,” said first author Tanya Horwitz, a doctoral candidate in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience and the Institute for Behavioral Genetics (IBG). The study, published Aug. 31 in the journal Nature Human Behaviour, confirms ...

Active children are more resilient
The school year has hardly begun and the first exams are already approaching. According to findings by researchers from the University of Basel, school children cope better with the stress if they get plenty of daily exercise. “Get some exercise!” It’s one suggestion adults frequently hear when they complain about stress in their lives. Exercise helps relieve stress. But does this also apply to children? Does exercise help them manage the pressures to achieve at school?

Positive body image linked to better life satisfaction: Largest study of its kind also finds people in rural areas appreciate their bodies more
Having more positive body image is strongly associated with better psychological wellbeing and life satisfaction, according to a new study led by Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) in England. Published in the journal Body Image, the research is one of the largest studies ever conducted on the topic of body image, involving 56,968 participants in 65 nations. The research was focused on ‘body appreciation’, defined as “accepting, holding favourable opinions toward, and respecting the body, ...

Children with higher BMI at increased risk of developing depression
Children between ages 12 and 16 with a higher body mass index (BMI) are at an increased risk of developing depression symptoms, new research has found. Associations between a higher BMI and depression were weaker between ages 16 and 21 indicating ages 12-16 is a sensitive point where preventative methods could be beneficial. The study, published recently in Psychological Medicine by researchers from King’s College London, analysed data from more than 10,000 twins in the ...

Talk therapy with other moms an effective treatment for postpartum depression, McMaster research shows
An innovative model of care that offers new mothers psychotherapy delivered by other mothers who have also experienced post-partum depression (PPD) should be implemented in clinical practice, according to researchers at McMaster University. Researchers worked with nearly 200 mothers over a year and a half, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, and found those receiving treatment from their peers were 11 times more likely to experience remission of their major depressive disorder.

Is digital media use a risk factor for psychosis in young adults? Young adults who have more frequent psychotic experiences also tend to spend more time on digital media, study finds
On average, young adults in Canada spend several hours on their smartphones every day. Many jump from TikTok to Netflix to Instagram, putting their phone down only to pick up a video game controller. A growing body of research is looking into the potential dangers of digital media overuse, as well as potential benefits of moderate digital media use, from a mental health standpoint. A recent McGill University study of 425 Quebecers between the ages of 18 and 25 has found that young adults who ...

Your genes influence whether depression leads to other diseases
Almost one in five Danes experiences depression during their lives. A new study from Aarhus University now shows that the genetic risk of depression can be linked to an increased genetic risk of other psychiatric diagnoses. The study has just been published in Nature Medicine. Through a detailed genetic scan, the researchers studied the genome of 1.3 million people, where more than 370,000 of them suffered from depression. This is the largest genetic study of depression to date, ...

More sleep could reduce impulsive behavior in children: Study finds that improved sleep can reduce environmental stressors’ negative influence on behavior
Sleep is a critical part of a child's overall health, but it can also be an important factor in the way they behave. According to a new study from the Youth Development Institute at University of Georgia, getting enough sleep can help children combat the effects of stressful environments. "Stressful environments are shown to make adolescents seek immediate rewards rather than delayed rewards, but there are also adolescents who are in stressful environments who are not impulsive," ...

Overlooked part of brain could play critical role in addiction recovery
Researchers from Indiana University School of Medicine have discovered a neglected brain region that could play a critical role in how likely a person with drug use disorders is to relapse, even after a long withdrawal period. Their findings were published recently in Biological Psychiatry. “Past studies in the field of addiction research have focused on the medial prefrontal cortex, which is the part of the brain that controls decision making, but no effective prevention or treatment for ...

Social media does not cause depression in children and young people: Yes, kids spend a lot of time on social media. And the prevalence of depression in youths has increased. But there's no evidence of a causal link
“The prevalence of anxiety and depression has increased. As has the use of social media. Many people therefore believe that there has to be a correlation,” says Silje Steinsbekk, a professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology's (NTNU) Department of Psychology. But that is not the case if we are to believe the results of the study “Social media behaviours and symptoms of anxiety and depression. A four-wave cohort study from age 10-16 years”.

Formerly depressed patients continue to focus on negative: Attending to positives may be as important as minimizing negatives to prevent relapse, study says
People who have recovered from a major depressive episode, when compared with individuals who have never experienced one, tend to spend more time processing negative information and less time processing positive information, putting them at risk for a relapse, according to research published by the American Psychological Association. “Our findings suggest that people who have a history of depression spend more time processing negative information, such as sad faces, than positive ...

Overuse of social media and devices top parent concerns as kids head back to school: Over half of parents worried about mental health issues; children's health concerns greater among parents in low-income households
As children head back to school, two issues have climbed higher on their parents' list of concerns: the role of social media and the internet in kids' lives. Over half of parents also rate mental health issues as leading health concerns for children and teens, according to the University of Michigan Health C.S. Mott Children's Hospital National Poll on Children's Health. Overall, emotional health and technology use dominated this year's top 10 list of parent concerns about health-related ...

Anxious people use less suitable section of brain to control emotions
When choosing their behaviour in socially difficult situations, anxious people use a less suitable section of the forebrain than people who are not anxious. This can be seen in brain scans, as shown by the research of Bob Bramson and Sjoerd Meijer at the Donders Institute of Radboud University. For example, an anxious and a non-anxious person both run into someone whom they've been in love with for quite some time. Both of them find this tense and both would like to ask the person out on ...

Why parental pressures are taking the fun out of children’s play
Modern day parenting pressures and expectations are leading to the death knell for children enjoying spontaneous play, according to a new study from the University of Essex. Whilst parents have always felt some responsibility for their children's development, the heightened intensity of parenting in recent years now means parents are expected to spend more time exhaustively watching, noticing and responding to their children's desires and behaviours. This, the research suggests, is leaving ...

Positive “resilience factors” can help older adults mitigate negative effects of loneliness, study finds: Positive factors include engaging in activities, expanding one’s social network, and using technology
“Resilience factors”, such as engaging in more activities, expanding one’s social network, and increasing the use of technology, can lower the risk of loneliness among the elderly, new research finds.

Social media use interventions alleviate symptoms of depression
Receiving therapy for problematic social media use can be effective in improving the mental wellbeing of people with depression, finds a new study by UCL researchers. The research, published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, found that social media use interventions could help adults for whom social media use has become problematic or interferes with their mental health. Problematic use is when a person’s pre-occupation with social media results in a distraction from their primary ...

Mothers experiencing depression can still thrive as parents: UBC Okanagan researcher explores how external supports offset the risks to children’s health posed by maternal depression
The proverb “It takes a village to raise a child” takes on new significance when a mother of a child is experiencing depression. “Being a mother with depression carries increased risks for a child’s physical and psychological health,” says Dr. Sarah Dow-Fleisner, Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work and Director of the Centre for the Study of Services to Children and Families at UBC Okanagan. “But it’s not fated to be, especially if mothers have external supports.”

Symptoms of the body and the mind are frequent fellow travelers: JAMA Network Open commentary focuses on the relationship of pain, depression and anxiety
Chronic pain is often accompanied by depression and anxiety. In an invited commentary published in JAMA Network Open, Kurt Kroenke, M.D., of Regenstrief Institute and Indiana University School of Medicine, discusses the relationship between pain, the most common symptom for which individuals visit a physician, and depression and anxiety, the two most prevalent mental health conditions worldwide. He highlights the importance of not neglecting psychological symptoms in patients experiencing pain.

Robust analysis challenges theory that depression and anxiety increase cancer risk
Depression and anxiety are thought to increase a person’s risk of developing cancer, but research results have been inconclusive. In an analysis of multiple studies from the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Norway, and Canada, investigators found that depression and anxiety are not linked to higher risks for most types of cancer among this population. The analysis is published by Wiley online in CANCER, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society. Experts have suspected that ...

Better coaching to promote a person's growth: New research suggests more effective approach -- for managers, therapists, teachers and parents
What if there was a more effective way to coach and inspire your employees? Athletes? Students? Even your kids? A new study by a team of researchers from Case Western Reserve University suggests there is. Their newly published work used neuroimaging to peer into the brains of participants as they responded to two different styles of coaching. The researchers wanted to see what happens in the brain that either helps people grow or causes them to resist change.

Childhood trauma may heighten subsequent risk of pregnancy complications: Pregnancy related diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, low birthweight/premature babies more likely
Childhood trauma, such as abuse, emotional neglect, and exposure to domestic violence, may heighten a woman’s subsequent risk of pregnancy complications, and of giving birth to a low birthweight or premature baby, finds a pooled data analysis of the available evidence, published in the open access journal BMJ Open. The risks of pregnancy related diabetes, high blood pressure, depression/anxiety and of giving birth to underweight and or premature babies may all be significantly higher, ...

Bullying, suicidal thoughts linked to more frequent headaches in teens
Teens who have been bullied by their peers, or who have considered or attempted suicide, may be more likely to have more frequent headaches than teens who have not experienced any of these problems, according to a study published in the August 2, 2023, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. The study does not prove that bullying or thoughts of suicide cause headaches; it only shows an association. “Headaches are a common problem for ...

Unhappy family or trauma in youth leads to poor health in old age
Adverse childhood experiences have impacts deep into old age, especially for those who experienced violence, and include both physical and cognitive impairments. It’s known that a difficult childhood can lead to a host of health issues as a young or midlife adult, but now, for the first time, researchers at UC San Franciso have linked adverse experiences early in life to lifelong health consequences. They found that older U.S. adults with a history of stressful or traumatic experiences as ...

Where Black adolescents live affects their mental health
It’s easy to imagine that growing up in a neighborhood with safe and clean parks, little to no discrimination, and where people are not struggling financially makes for a lower-stress childhood. In contrast, neighborhoods with few community spaces, violence, and poverty create a higher-stress environment for a child to live in. Unfortunately, systemic and structural issues such as wealth inequality, residential segregation, barriers to home ownership, and environmental injustice in ...

Women and men react differently to strain and stress
Does anyone still remember the initial phase of the Corona pandemic in 2020? When shops, restaurants, cinemas, and theatres remained closed. When meetings with friends and relatives were prohibited. When school lessons had to take place at home in the children’s rooms. When there was no question of traveling. Presently, most people seem to have long forgotten these times. Yet, the various corona measures taken by politicians are likely to have caused enormous stress for many.

Brain single-cell study reveals genes that may be involved in post-traumatic stress and major depressive disorders
An international team led by investigators at McLean Hospital analyzed the genes expressed in approximately 575,000 individual cells from the brains of people with and without post-traumatic stress and major depressive disorders (PTSD and MDD), revealing new insights into the mechanisms behind the brain’s stress response in these conditions. The findings, which are published in The American Journal of Psychiatry, could lead to novel markers of PTSD and MDD and well as new therapeutic targets.

Association of early-, middle-, and late-life depression with incident dementia
The results of this study of more than 1.4 million adult Danish citizens followed up from 1977 to 2018 suggest that the risk of dementia was more than doubled for both men and women with diagnosed depression. The persistent association between dementia and depression diagnosed in early and middle life suggests that depression may increase dementia risk.

Fathers’ psychiatric diagnosis increases risk of preterm birth: New analysis of Swedish birth records suggests it’s not only mothers’ mental health that’s important
Fathers’ as well as mothers’ psychiatric history is associated with preterm birth, according to a study published July 20th in the open access journal PLOS Medicine. The research shows for the first time that the risk of preterm birth is higher in infants whose fathers or mothers have psychiatric diagnoses, compared with those who do not, and where both parents have diagnoses, the risk is increased again. Preterm birth is associated with negative health consequences for infants. Women with ...

Espresso can prevent Alzheimer's protein clumping in lab tests
Whether enjoyed on its own or mixed into a latte, Americano or even a martini, espresso provides an ultra-concentrated jolt of caffeine to coffee lovers. But it might do more than just wake you up. Research now published in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry shows that, in preliminary in vitro laboratory tests, espresso compounds can inhibit tau protein aggregation — a process that is believed to be involved in the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Roughly half of all Americans ...

Men who previously used antidepressants significantly more likely to need them after having a child
New fathers are over 30 times more likely to take antidepressants in the first year after having a child, if they have a recent history of the treatment, finds a new study by UCL researchers. The research, published in JAMA Network Open, analysed information from over 500,000 primary care electronic health records from the IQVIA Medical Research Database, from January 2007 to December 2016. These included 90,736 men who had had a child in the previous year and 453,632 men who ...

High-quality sleep promotes resilience to depression and anxiety
Research has shown quality sleep can help bolster resilience to depression and anxiety. The study, led by researchers at the University of York, highlights that chronic stress is a major risk factor for a number of mental health disorders, including depression and pathological anxiety, but high-quality sleep and coping strategies -- such as the ability to reframe a situation to see the positive side -- can help to prevent poor mental health when faced with negative or stressful experiences.

Memories of childhood abuse and neglect has greater impact on mental health than the experience itself
New research from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King's College London and City University New York, published today (Wednesday 5 July) in JAMA Psychiatry, has found that the way childhood abuse and/or neglect is remembered and processed has a greater impact on later mental health than the experience itself. The authors suggest that, even in the absence of documented evidence, clinicians can use patients' self-reported experiences of abuse and ...
