    Study details which exercises fight depression
    American Medical News
    In the past decade, research has shown the benefits that exercise has for patients with major depressive disorder. A new study helps physicians prescribe the right dose. In addition to enhancing one's mood, exercise helps depressed patients lose weight and lower their cholesterol, said Madhukar H. Trivedi, M.D., a co-author of the study that appeared in the May Journal of Psychiatric Practice.

    Military service member offspring at higher risk of mental issues
    Science World Report
    A new study from the American Academy of Pediatrics states that children from military families are at a higher risk of emotional, social and behavioral problems. The risk is even higher if there are pre-existing psychological issues in the family. In the study, researchers noticed that 1 in 4 kids who belonged to active-duty service members underwent symptoms of depression, 1 in 3 faced excessive worry and 1 in 2 kids had problem sleeping.

    No link seen between child stimulant use and later drug abuse
    The New York Times
    An analysis published by the American Medical Association said children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder who take stimulant medication do not have a lower risk over all for later substance abuse, contradicting the longstanding and influential message that such medicines tend to deter those with the disorder from abusing other substances.

    New hope to treat schizophrenia with therapist-controlled avatars
    Press Association via the Guardian
    Scientists are examining whether computer-generated avatars can help patients with schizophrenia. The avatars are designed by patients to give a form to voices they may be hearing, then controlled by therapists who encourage patients to oppose the voices and gradually teach them to take control of any hallucination.

    Global influence gives boost to counseling profession
    Counseling Today
    To American Counseling Association President Bradley T. Erford, the globalization of counseling is not about creating a mirror image of the profession as it is practiced here at home. In fact, Erford thinks counseling's global spread offers valuable opportunities for professional counselors in the United States to absorb new techniques and new ways of thinking about counseling from every corner of the earth.

    The Denver Post
    For most people, stress just comes with the job. For a growing number of workers, however, that stress is becoming a health problem keeping them from work.

    HealthDay News
    Various forms of "talk therapy" can help people with depression, but no single type stands out as better than the rest, according to a new analysis.

    Bridging generation gaps in the workplace
    Finance & Commerce
    It may be unusual for three generations of one family to work for the same organization, but companies these days have up to four generations of unrelated people working together.

    Addressing mental health issues in HIV care can improve outcomes
    PLOS Medicine via Medical News Today
    The integration of mental health interventions into HIV prevention and treatment platforms can reduce the opportunity costs of care and improve treatment outcomes, argues a new Policy Forum article published in PLOS Medicine. Syvia Kaaya from the School of Medicine at the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and her international colleagues say that effective interventions exist for recognition and treatment of co-morbid mental disorders and can be implemented successfully by trained non-specialized providers in HIV care.
