#ADAA2020 Jerilyn Ross Lecture Announced
Resilience in Science and Practice: Pathways to the Future
In this presentation, Dr. Masten will highlight recent advances in theory and research on resilience in human development. Resilience science emerged from research on the origins of mental health problems as researchers and practitioners recognized the extraordinary variation in the adjustment and outcomes of individuals believed to be at risk for psychopathology and the importance of understanding processes of positive adaptation and protection as well as risks and the development of problems in the context of adversity. From the outset, resilience research had translational goals and recognized the power of intervention studies to test evolving hypotheses about the processes that support adapting or recovering in the context of adversity. In contemporary transdisciplinary theory, resilience is defined as the capacity of a system to adapt successfully to challenges that threaten the function, survival, or development of the system. This definition is scalable across levels of analysis and workable across disciplines. Learn more about the Jerilyn Ross Lecture.

Sufferer Band, by Shane Gann
"Sufferer was formed from a desperate need to hear the anxious and depressive voices in my head, separately from within. The thought spurred me to action, the first song fully written as soon as I picked up my guitar. After came an onslaught of ideas, and within a span of a few hours, I had a full song, parts for others, and the two basic concepts…"
Hyper-Ventilate, by Maritza Navarro
"I’ve been struggling with panic disorder for 16 years. I still work every day to tame my incessant worry and paralyzing fears. I created Hyper-Ventilate, an immersive performance, to encourage people to air out their experiences with anxiety and hopefully transform the audience’s understanding of mental health…"

Nearly two-thirds of Canadian patients with chronic pain who had contemplated suicide at some point reported being free from suicidal ideation over the past year, according to a study published in The Journal of Pain.

One key characteristic of clinical depression is anhedonia, the complete lack of pleasure in things and activities that used to be rewarding. A new study in rats has now uncovered an important biological factor that contributes to this state.
Suicide is the nation's 10th-leading cause of death, and suicide rates have increased in almost every state since the turn of the century, according to data reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
McLean Hospital via Medical Xpress
Based on a study by McLean Hospital researchers, individuals with anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions may soon be able to use a smartphone app to deliver on-demand cognitive bias modification for interpretation, a way to change mental habits without visiting a therapist.

A new survey finds more employers are improving access to mental health care, including offering on-site counseling and online programs to address anxiety, depression, sleep and pain.
Among 523 employers surveyed by New York-based human resources consulting firm Mercer, job-related stress and depression or anxiety are the top workforce behavioral health concerns, with more than half of the respondents citing these issues as a concern for their organizations. Nearly two-thirds of the respondents say adequate access to outpatient behavioral health care is lacking in some or all of their locations, but many are seeking to increase employee access to quality behavioral health services instead of waiting for the situation to improve, according to the survey.
Older adults with impaired vision are more likely to have symptoms of anxiety and depression, and older adults with symptoms of anxiety or depression are more likely to develop vision impairment, according to findings from the U.S. National Health and Aging Trends Study.
Medical News Today
Researchers from Germany and Switzerland have recently investigated the possible associations between conditions relating to mental health, such as depression and anxiety, and the presence of different types of allergy. Their findings, they say, should prompt scientists to pay more attention to these links.

Coming from a broken home or suffering abuse can traumatize a child, but new research suggests team sports might be just the medicine these kids need.
Tracking U.S. health data from nearly 10,000 people, researchers found that teens who experienced childhood trauma and played team sports had lower odds of depression and anxiety as young adults.
Despite the efforts of public figures like Lady Gaga, Prince Harry and Katy Perry being more open about their own mental health experiences, still nearly two-thirds of people with a known mental disorder never seek help from a health professional.
Mental health therapist and author, Nancy Jane Smith, says there’s even a condition people may be experiencing that’s more hidden—not realizing they don’t have to feel this way.
Social media researchers are as perplexed as the average parent about the conflicting and often hyperbolic messages being delivered about the effects of Facebook and the like on psychological well-being. It’s easy to find studies showing positive effects (larger networks, more social support and so on) and even easier to find studies showing negative effects (increases in depression or loneliness). Sometimes the contradictory papers are based on the same data set.
