The Early Career Professionals and Students Special Interest Group is seeking applicants for two open Co-Chair positions to serve for 2018-2019. Serving as a SIG leader is a wonderful opportunity to get more involved in ADAA. The position also affords the opportunity to think of creative ways to engage other early career ADAA members. The Early Career Professionals and Students SIG unites students and early career professionals interested in the clinical treatment and research of anxiety and depression. The group develops ADAA conference activities organized around topics specifically relevant to students and early career professionals, and offers an initial avenue for students and early career professionals to become more involved in ADAA by encouraging new and continuing ADAA membership.
Please review the eligibility requirements and responsibilities and contact the Early Career Professionals and Students SIG Chair Shari Steinman Haxel, PhD by May 11 if you are interested in serving as a Co-Chair. Please include a brief (one paragraph) statement as to why you would like to be a SIG leader.
ADAA's Public Education Committee, in collaboration with the ADAA Child and Adolescent Special Interest Group (SIG), have created two helpful outreach tools to address a need often voiced by ADAA members: How can we inform parents and pediatricians about child anxiety? Why spend hours of your own time trying to create material that effectively and concisely communicates the CBT based services that you offer your clients? Let ADAA do the hard work for you. ADAA members can download and access an ADAA Pediatric Outreach PowerPoint presentation and a customizable brochure (you will need to log-in with your ADAA member id and password) that summarize empirically supported treatment protocols for anxiety and related disorders. These communication tools will assist in facilitating richer working relationships and clinical collaboration with physicians in your community.
ADAA is seeking blog posts on seniors and anxiety/depression and women and anxiety/depression for our public and professional communities. Interested in contributing a post to ADAA? Please contact Lise Bram.

Anxiety sensitivity, commonly referred to as the "fear of fear," may affect treatment outcomes in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder, and treatment preference may influence AS outcomes in patients with post-traumatic stress disorder, new research suggests.
A study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders has shown that healthy adults who stop regular exercise can experience depressive symptoms as a result, with females displaying a stronger tendency toward depressive symptoms than males.
There are no laboratory tests to diagnose migraines, depression, bipolar disorder and many other ailments of the brain. Doctors typically gauge such illnesses based on self-reported symptoms and behavior. Now, a new study shows that a kind of brain scan called functional connectivity MRI — which shows how brain regions interact — can reliably detect fundamental differences in how individual brains are wired.
Heightened inflammation during pregnancy may increase the risk of mental illness or brain development problems in children, according to a new study led by researchers in Portland. The research team discovered a link between inflammation in pregnant women and the way the newborn brain is organized into networks. The findings were published in the journal Nature Neuroscience.
Despite a global decline in childhood infectious diseases, the prevalence of mental illness among youth has remained the same. That makes mental disorders one of the main origins of illness in children aged 4-15 years around the world, according to a new study published in the journal Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health.
A nasal spray mist form of ketamine, which has a history of recreational use, could help alleviate symptoms of major depression and suicide thoughts, according to a new study. Researchers paired an intranasal formulation of esketamine, which is part of the ketamine molecule, with standard treatment for rapid treatment of depression and suicidal symptoms, comparing the outcome to that of standard treatment plus a placebo.
Personality functioning had a significant predictive effect on global functioning for patients in the euthymic phase of bipolar disorder I, according to findings published in Psychiatry Research. Researchers collected demographic and clinical features from 100 patients with bipolar disorder I whose disease was in remission.
More intense dissociative symptoms exhibited during ketamine infusion for severe depression, particularly depersonalization, may be key predictors of treatment response. In addition, new safety and efficacy data for off-label use of the drug are encouraging.
United Kingdom scientists have identified nearly 80 genes associated with depression, a finding that could help explain why some people may be at a higher risk of developing the condition. Experts believe the findings could also help researchers develop drugs to tackle mental disorders. The research appears in the journal Nature Communications.
Predictors of response to mainstream therapies for major depressive disorder range from baseline comorbid anxiety, brain connectivity patterns on neuroimaging, genomic patterns and novel findings of inflammatory system abnormalities, new research suggests.
The hippocampus is an area of the brain commonly linked with memory and dementia. But new research finds that it may also yield important clues about a range of mental health illnesses including addiction, anxiety and depression. The research, authored by a team of neuroscientists, found that a specific part of the hippocampus could play an important role in emotional regulation.

When you think of Michael Phelps, you probably picture him celebrating in the pool after shattering a world record, or standing victorious on top of an Olympic podium holding a gold medal up to the cameras. But it turns out that — in the aftermath of the 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016 Olympics — all those gold medals did little to alleviate the feelings of depression in his life.
The Huffington Post
ocial anxiety disorder is more than a fleeting feeling of shyness. It's a mental illness that can disrupt the regular flow of life, making everyday tasks and responsibilities seem impossible. People with social anxiety often suffer in silence, their behavioral and emotional symptoms not apparent to friends and family.
Some medical experiments are more daunting than others. The one that the neurologist Helen Mayberg came up with to test a model of depression she had developed over about 15 years involved drilling two holes in the top of a patient's skull and sliding two low-voltage electrodes deep into the brain until they reached a region known as Brodmann area 25.
