Study uncovers differences in saliva bacteria of students with recent suicidal thoughts
A new University of Florida study has found that bacteria in the saliva of college students who reported recent thoughts of suicide differed in significant ways from those found in students who had not experienced recent suicidal thinking. While there is a growing body of research on mental health and the human microbiome, this is the first study to look at bacterial differences in the saliva of those with and without recent suicidal thoughts, also called suicidal ideation. Recent suicidal ...

News addiction linked to not only poor mental wellbeing but physical health too, new study shows
People with an obsessive urge to constantly check the news are more likely to suffer from stress, anxiety, as well as physical ill health, finds a new study published in the peer-reviewed journal Health Communication. During the last two years we have lived through a series of worrying global events, from the COVID pandemic to Russia invading Ukraine, large-scale protests, mass shootings and devastating wildfires. For many people, reading bad news can make us feel temporarily ...

Psychedelic drug therapy may help treat alcohol addiction, study finds
Two doses of psilocybin, a compound found in psychedelic mushrooms, reduces heavy drinking by 83% on average among heavy drinkers when combined with psychotherapy, a new study shows. Led by researchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, the investigation involved 93 men and women with alcohol dependence. They were randomly assigned to receive either two doses of psilocybin or an antihistamine placebo. Neither the researchers nor the study participants knew ...

Low job control a risk factor for suicidal behavior
Men working in occupations featuring low demands and low control over their own work situation are at elevated risk for suicide attempts and suicide. In jobs with high demands and high control, the risk is lower. This is shown in a study from the University of Gothenburg. Men generally find it harder than women to seek help for mental ill-health, and suicide at working age is significantly more common in men. However, knowledge of how suicidal behavior is affected by workplace psychosocial ...

Hepatitis C drugs may reduce PTSD symptoms
More than six percent of Americans will develop posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in their lifetime. This potentially chronic condition disrupts lives, and can lead to or exacerbate existing health issues such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and suicidal thoughts. Despite the high prevalence of PTSD, the US Food and Drug Administration has only approved two medications to treat this condition -- sertraline and paroxetine -- and both have shown only limited effectiveness in ...

“Cheat Meals” linked to eating disorders in adolescents and young adults
A new study published in the Journal of Eating Disorders found that, in course of a year, over half of men, women, and transgender or gender non-conforming participants engaged in at least one “cheat meal” — the practice of deviating from one’s established dietary practices to consume “prohibited” calorie dense meals, only to return to previous dietary practices later. Among women, engagement in cheat meals in the previous 12 months was associated with all seven types of eating disorder ...

Vitamin D supplementation seems to alleviate depressive symptoms in adults
An extensive meta-analysis suggests that vitamin D supplementation may alleviate depressive symptoms in adults with depression. Conducted by an international team of researchers, the meta-analysis includes dozens of studies from around the world. Depressive symptoms cause a significant disease burden worldwide. The therapeutic efficacy of current antidepressants is often insufficient, which is why further ways to alleviate the symptoms of depression have been sought, ...

Behavior problems and excessive use of gadgets - cause or effect? It's not the mobile that makes children hyperactive, but the other way round
It's not the mobile that makes children hyperactive, but the other way round: a fidgety child will use a mobile phone more - according to the latest research from the Alpha Generation Lab at the Department of Ethology at Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE). Several studies suggest that early and excessive TV viewing can lead to later attention problems and hyperactivity. The reverse is also true: fidgety, restless children are more likely to use digital devices, and parents are also more ...

Targeting impulsivity early in adolescence could prevent later behavioral disorders: Study supports early intervention to halt cascading chain
Tendencies toward impulsivity in early adolescence are linked with a variety of poor outcomes in later adolescence, including antisocial personality disorder and alcohol use disorder. However, by the time teenagers reach mid-adolescence, it may be too late to target impulsivity to prevent the development of these behavioral disorders. Past research has shown the link between impulsivity and these disorders, but not how it unfolds. Now, a new study based on data tracking ...

After breakups, people feel less in-control – but only at first: Study analyzed changes in sense of control after separation, divorce and death of a partner
A new analysis of people who underwent different types of relationship loss found that these experiences were linked with different patterns of short- and long-term sense of control following the loss. Previous research has shown that a greater perceived sense of personal control over one’s life is associated with better well-being and better health. Romantic relationships are closely linked to perceived control; for instance, evidence suggests a link between perceived control and ...

Smells experienced in nature evoke positive wellbeing: Smells experienced in nature can make us feel relaxed, joyful, and healthy, according to new research
Smells experienced in nature can make us feel relaxed, joyful, and healthy, according to new research led by the University of Kent’s Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology (DICE). Smells were found to play an important role in delivering wellbeing benefits from interacting with nature, often with a strong link to people’s personal memories, and specific ecological characteristics and processes (e.g. fallen leaves rotting in the winter). Nature is known to play an integral role in ...

Regular enquiry about well-being vs. universal screening recommended to detect depression in pregnancy and after birth
Depression in pregnant and postpartum people is a serious problem. Rather than using a screening tool with a cut-off score to detect depression in every pregnant and postpartum patient, clinicians should ask patients about their well-being as part of usual care, recommends a new guideline from the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal)

A study links long covid-related fatigue to anxiety and depression for the first time
The most common symptoms of the post-COVID-19 condition known as long covid include fatigue, shortness of breath and cognitive dysfunction, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). To be considered symptoms of long COVID, they must be present for at least two months during the three months after the onset of the disease. A recent study in Brain and Behavior showed that the disease had a generalized impact on attention skills, executive functions, learning and ...

No evidence that depression is caused by low serotonin levels, finds comprehensive review
After decades of study, there remains no clear evidence that serotonin levels or serotonin activity are responsible for depression, according to a major review of prior research led by UCL scientists. The new umbrella review – an overview of existing meta-analyses and systematic reviews – published in Molecular Psychiatry, suggests that depression is not likely caused by a chemical imbalance, and calls into question what antidepressants do. Most antidepressants are selective serotonin ...

Depression linked to consuming an inflammatory diet, increasing risk of frailty: Middle-aged and older adults with depression may be more vulnerable to the effects of dietary inflammation on the development of frailty and other health issues
A new study published in The Journal of Gerontology: Medical Sciences found a link between depression, diet, and the development of frailty. Frailty, defined as a recognizable state of increased vulnerability resulting from a decline in function across multiple physiological systems, affects 10-15% older adults and often co-occurs with other health conditions, like depression.Frailty, defined as a recognizable state of increased vulnerability resulting from a decline in function across ...

Scientists pinpoint reason why women may not respond to depression treatments the same as men
Previous analyses within the nucleus accumbens showed that different genes were turned on or off in women, but not in men diagnosed with depression. These changes could have caused symptoms of depression, or alternatively, the experience of being depressed could have changed the brain -- a clue to why anti-depressants had not been successful for some women.

Friends enjoy being reached out to more than we think: The greater the surprise, the greater the appreciation, study says
People consistently underestimate how much others in their social circle might appreciate an unexpected phone call, text or email just to say hello, and the more surprising the connection, the greater the appreciation, according to research published by the American Psychological Association. "People are fundamentally social beings and enjoy connecting with others," said lead author Peggy Liu, PhD, of the University of Pittsburgh. "There is much research showing that maintaining ...

Online art viewing can improve well-being: Effects are similar to those of visits to physical art galleries or even nature experiences
Viewing art while visiting galleries and museums can have powerful effects on an individual's mood, stress and well-being. But does the same hold true for viewing art in digital space? A new study investigated whether engaging with art online also has this effect. Their conclusion: a short three-minute visit to an online art or cultural exhibition also shows significant positive effects on subjective well-being.

Gardening can cultivate better mental health
Many longtime gardeners will tell you that the garden is their happy place. New research suggests that many people may indeed reap mental health benefits from working with plants -- even if they've never gardened before. In a study published in the journal PLOS ONE, University of Florida scientists found that gardening activities lowered stress, anxiety and depression in healthy women who attended twice-weekly gardening classes. None of study participants had gardened before.

Study reveals the job problems contributing to physician suicide: Physical and mental health, substance use, relationships, legal matters and finances all contribute to physician suicide, UC San Diego study shows
Physician burnout and suicide are a growing public health concern, with 1 in 15 physicians experiencing suicidal ideation. Studies consistently show that physicians are more likely than non-physicians to experience work-related stressors prior to suicide. Still, the exact nature of these stressors was unknown. To better understand and characterize the job stressors that contribute to physician suicide, researchers at UC San Diego Health reviewed the death investigation narratives from 200 ...

No more binge eating: Signal pathway in the brain that controls food intake discovered
Researchers have developed a novel approach to treating eating disorders. The scientists showed that a group of nerve cells in the hypothalamus (so-called AgRP, agouti-related peptide neurons) control the release of endogenous lysophospholipids, which in turn control the excitability of nerve cells in the cerebral cortex, which stimulates food intake.

Study shows link between cyberbullying and suicidality in early adolescence
Young adolescents who are targets of cyberbullying are more likely to report suicidal thoughts and attempts, an association that goes above and beyond the link between suicidality and traditional offline bullying, according to new research from the Lifespan Brain Institute (LiBI) of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the University of Pennsylvania. The findings were published today in JAMA Network Open. “At a time when young adolescents are spending more time online ...

Feelings of detachment predict worse mental health outcomes after trauma: Patients who experience this symptom may benefit from early interventions
Results from the largest prospective study of its kind indicate that for individuals who experience trauma, the presence of dissociation -- a profound feeling of detachment from one's sense of self or surroundings -- may indicate a high risk of later developing severe post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, physical pain, and social impairment. The research, which was led by investigators at McLean Hospital, is published in the American Journal of Psychiatry.

Losing a grandmother may trigger rise in depression for some of her survivors: The study found adolescent boys experienced a 50% increase in depressive symptoms
Losing a beloved family member is never easy, but a new study suggests the loss of a grandmother in particular may have repercussions for the loved ones she leaves behind. The researchers found that for up to seven years after the death of their grandmother, adolescent boys had a 50% increase in depression symptoms compared to peers who were not grieving. Additionally, this loss also was associated with a higher chance of both adolescent boys' and girls' mothers also becoming depressed.

Suicide rates didn't increase during pandemic, study finds
Many people, including mental health experts, anticipated a dramatic increase in suicide rates following the outbreak of Covid-19. But in fact, this has not been the case and most of the research published in scientific journals points to either no change or a decrease in rates of suicide following the pandemic. This is according to a new international study on the impact of Covid-19 on rates of suicide and self-harm in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Led by Dr Duleeka Knipe from ...

Pre-school play with friends lowers risk of mental health problems later: Children who learn to play well with others at pre-school age tend to enjoy better mental health as they get older, new research shows
Children who learn to play well with others at pre-school age tend to enjoy better mental health as they get older, new research shows. The findings provide the first clear evidence that 'peer play ability', the capacity to play successfully with other children, has a protective effect on mental health. Researchers at the University of Cambridge analysed data from almost 1,700 children, collected when they were aged three and seven. Those with better peer play ability at age three ...

Changing the channel: Study sheds new light on a promising antidepressant
Ketamine, a well-known anesthetic used in smaller doses as a party drug, was hailed as a "new hope for depression" in a Time magazine cover story in 2017. Two years later, the arrival of the first ketamine-based antidepressant -- the nasal spray esketamine, made by Johnson & Johnson -- was applauded as the most exciting development in the treatment of mood disorders in decades. Yet the U.S. Food and Drug Administration still limits the spray's use. It is mainly given to depressed patients ...

Team sports linked to fewer mental health difficulties for kids: However, kids who exclusively play individual sports more likely to face mental health challenges
A large-scale study of U.S. children and adolescents has found that participation in a team sport is associated with fewer mental health difficulties, but that kids who are exclusively involved in an individual sport—such as tennis or wrestling—may face greater mental health difficulties than kids who do no sports at all. Matt Hoffmann of California State University, U.S.A., and colleagues present these findings in the open-access journal PLOS ONE on June 1, 2022.

Large multi-hospital study: Adolescent females were especially vulnerable to mental health impact of pandemic-related school closings
Data from 44 hospitals in 26 states show that suicide or self-injury and depressive disorders were the primary mental health reasons children received emergency department (ED) or hospital inpatient care after statewide school closures were enacted during the first part of the COVID-19 pandemic. A study published in the May 25 issue of the journal Psychiatric Services validates findings from earlier public health surveillance data suggesting a disproportionate rise in ED visits for ...

Pandemic-related stressors in pregnant women may impact their babies before they’re born
Prolonged levels of stress and depression during the COVID-19 pandemic contributed to altering key features of fetal brain development — even if the mother was not infected by the virus.

Children who play adventurously have better mental health, research finds: Children who spend more time playing adventurously have lower symptoms of anxiety and depression, and were happier over the first Covid-19 lockdown, according to new research
Children who spend more time playing adventurously have lower symptoms of anxiety and depression, and were happier over the first Covid-19 lockdown, according to new research. A study led by the University of Exeter asked parents how often their children engaged in play that was “thrilling and exciting”, where they might experience some fear and uncertainty. The study, published in Child Psychiatry and Human Development, comes at a time when today’s children have fewer ...
