Insomnia in midlife may manifest as cognitive problems in retirement age
The Helsinki Health Study at the University of Helsinki investigated the development of insomnia symptoms in midlife and their effects on memory, learning ability and concentration after retirement. The follow-up period was 15-17 years. According to the study, long-term insomnia symptoms and later poorer cognitive functioning have a clear connection. "The findings indicate that severe insomnia symptoms were associated with worse cognitive function among those who were on ...

Diet plays key role in ADHD symptoms in children: Study finds more fruits and veggies means less inattention
Here’s a good reason for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to eat their fruits and vegetables: It may help reduce inattention issues, a new study suggests. As part of a larger study, researchers asked parents of 134 kids with ADHD symptoms to complete a detailed questionnaire about the typical foods the children ate, including portion sizes, over a 90-day period. Another questionnaire asked parents to rate symptoms of inattention – a hallmark of ADHD – in their ...

Early days of COVID-19 pandemic brought increased anxiety for some cancer survivors: In recently published research, Joanna Arch, PhD, found that previous therapy interventions did not spare cancer survivors the stresses of the pandemic
Among the many lessons collectively learned during the initial months of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic was this: The experience was uncharted psychological and emotional terrain. It wasn’t uncommon for people across the globe to express uncertainty about how to navigate new stresses and new emotions. For University of Colorado Cancer Center member Joanna Arch, PhD, an associate professor of psychology and neuroscience at CU Boulder, the early days of the pandemic ...

Kids can show anxiety symptoms early on. Here’s how to spot them
Your child doesn’t want to go to the playground to play with other kids. Or she doesn’t want to attend a friend’s birthday party or the class pool party. How do you know whether she’s just having a bad day or if it’s a sign of ongoing anxiety she might be experiencing? Anxiety disorders are marked by persistent and excessive worries. While someone with generalized anxiety might worry about various everyday things, someone with social anxiety typically has “intense or persisting fears ...

Six lithium dose predictors for patients with bipolar disorder
Six predictors could help determine the amount of lithium needed to treat patients with bipolar disorder, according to a large study led by researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden. The study, published in the journal The Lancet Psychiatry, also pinpoints genetic markers that seem to influence how quickly the body eliminates lithium from its system. “Our model could already now be used to predict how much lithium a patient with bipolar disorder will need. This could cut valuable time ...

A better diet helps beat depression in young men
Young men with a poor diet saw a significant improvement in their symptoms of depression when they switched to a healthy Mediterranean diet, a new study shows. Depression is a common mental health condition that affects approximately 1 million Australians each year. It is a significant risk factor for suicide, the leading cause of death in young adults. The 12-week randomised control trial, conducted by researchers from the University of Technology Sydney, was recently ...

Social media break improves mental health, study suggests
Asking people to stop using social media for just one week could lead to significant improvements in their wellbeing, depression and anxiety and could, in the future, be recommended as a way to help people manage their mental health say the authors of a new study. The study, carried out by a team of researchers at the University of Bath (UK), studied the mental health effects of a week-long social media break. For some participants in the study, this meant freeing-up around nine hours ...

Study finds deep divide on mental health impact of COVID-19: Research uses mobile technology to compare emotional well-being of college students before and during the pandemic
COVID-19 is revealing a deep divide in the mental health of college students, with some having much more difficulty with their emotional well-being during the pandemic than others, according to a new Dartmouth study. The multiyear study comparing the first full year of COVD-19 against the year immediately prior shows how the mental health and behavior of college students has changed in response to the public health crisis. The study is the first to use mobile technology to compare ...

Stress, anxiety and depression during pregnancy may hinder toddler's cognitive development
Women's elevated anxiety, depression and stress during pregnancy altered key features of the fetal brain, which subsequently decreased their offspring's cognitive development at 18 months. These changes also increased internalizing and dysregulation behaviors, according to a new study. Researchers followed a cohort of 97 pregnant women and their babies. The findings further suggest that persistent psychological distress after the baby is born may influence the parent-child interaction ...

New studies show special mental health risks for certain groups of new doctors: Surgeons-in-training, and first-year residents who identify as LGBTQ+, experience more new signs of depression than peers
The first year of medical training after medical school brings intense stress, long work hours, irregular sleep schedules, and a risk of new or worsened symptoms of depression. But two studies identify two groups of first-year residents, also called interns, who may be especially at risk of developing mental health concerns: those who are training to be surgeons, and those who are members of sexual minorities. The studies, both published this week by teams from the University of Michigan, ...

OHIO researcher looks into little known ‘purging disorder’
Though purging is often a condition associated with bulimia nervosa, new research at Ohio University suggests that a different kind of eating disorder could also be responsible. The study, published in the International Journal of Eating Disorders, sought to differentiate the little understood “purging disorder” from the more well-documented bulimia nervosa, with which it is often confused. The research was led by K. Jean Forney, an assistant professor of psychology in the College of Arts ...

Study: Economic burden of PTSD `staggering’ -- U.S. civilian, military populations combine for more than $230 billion in annual costs
A new study finds that the national economic burden of PTSD goes beyond direct health care expenses and exceeds the costs of other common mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression. The researchers estimated the cost of PTSD at $232.2 billion for 2018, the latest year for which data were available at the time of the study. They called for increased awareness of PTSD, more effective therapies, and the expansion of evidence-based strategies to “reduce the large clinical and ...

Scientists discover mechanism behind chemically induced suppression of fearful memories
Fearful events negatively impact the brain. For instance, war veterans often go through post-traumatic stress disorder months after the cessation of the triggering event. Now, the precise mechanism of suppression of such fearful memories has been uncovered. Using a mouse model, the researchers identified the associated biochemical pathways, thus paving the way for the development and clinical evaluation of therapeutic compounds such as KNT-127.

Service dogs change lives of veterans with PTSD for the better
Veterans can develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after stressful or traumatic events. Utrecht University researcher Emmy van Houtert studied the influence of service dogs on the symptoms of PTSD. She also looked at the effect of the service work on the dogs. Service dogs appear to change the lives of people with PTSD for the better. The dogs themselves do not seem to experience any stress from their work.

Antidepressants are not associated with improved quality of life in the long run, study finds
Over time, using antidepressants is not associated with significantly better health-related quality of life, compared to people with depression who do not take the drugs. These are the findings of a new study published this week in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Omar Almohammed of King Saud University, Saudi Arabia, and colleagues. It is generally well known that depression disorder has a significant impact on the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of patients. While studies ...

Poor sleep patterns associated with anxiety, depression symptoms during the pandemic
Levels of adverse mental and health symptoms and substance use have increased dramatically among U.S. adults during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Witnessing parental domestic violence in childhood linked to mental illness in adulthood
A new study from the University of Toronto found that one-fifth (22.5%) of adults who were exposed to chronic parental domestic violence during childhood developed a major depressive disorder at some point in their life. This was much higher than the 9.1% of those without a history of parental domestic violence. "Our findings underline the risk of long-term negative outcomes of chronic domestic violence for children, even when the children themselves are not abused,” says author ...

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.

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.

Giving gender-affirming care: ‘gender dysphoria’ diagnosis should not be required
As people around the world come to acknowledge that gender is something defined along a spectrum rather than a binary concept, the necessity of a “gender dysphoria” diagnosis needs to be revisited.

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.
