#ADAA2020 Keynote Speaker Announced
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.

Most U.S. adults with mental health disorders have not received treatment for their conditions in the last year, and treatment rates were especially low for substance use disorders, according to 2012 to 2013 data from the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions-III.

Based on WHO data, researchers estimated that roughly one in five people in post-conflict settings had depression, anxiety disorder, PTSD, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia.
“Epidemiological studies in conflict settings typically present varying results, making their interpretation difficult and their statistical heterogeneity is extremely high,” Fiona Charlson, PhD, from the Queensland Centre for Mental Health Research, Australia, and colleagues wrote.
A combination of clinical and molecular biomarkers may be used to predict which patients are more likely to experience increased suicidal ideation during antidepressant treatment, according to study results published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.
Researchers of a study published in CHEST found that moderate to severe depressive symptoms after a stay in an intensive care unit are associated with decreased income, lower education, and higher functional dependence. Moreover, age correlates curvilinearly with symptom severity.
Research tells us suicide most often occurs when mental health conditions and stress come together to make someone feel a sense of hopelessness. It is estimated that 90 percent of people who die from suicide have a diagnosable mental health condition—most commonly depression—at the time of their death. People with serious health problems, prolonged stress or who have experienced childhood abuse or neglect are all more likely to die from suicide.
Researchers are looking more closely at the early stages of life to see if specific conditions that occur in-utero and birth are associated with increased risk of suicide later. This evidence is presented in a new systematic review in the journal Lancet Psychiatry.
While many people can pick up on signs of postpartum depression in new mothers, the same signs are often mistaken for something else or missed entirely in fathers, a British study suggests.
There needs to be greater awareness that the mental health disorder can occur in either parent for up to a year after the birth of a child, researchers say.
College students who didn't get enough sleep had more depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues, a researcher reported at SLEEP 2019, the annual meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies.
In adjusted models, a dose-response relationship was seen between lack of sleep and all mental health variables examined in an analysis of data from the National College Health Assessment, according to Thea Ramsey, a research assistant at the UA Sleep & Health Research Program at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

Weak physical performance on tests of the upper and lower body is associated with depressive and anxiety symptoms in midlife women, according to a study published online June 3 in Menopause.
Tests, after-school activities and problems at home can increase stress for students. But research now suggests that smartphones and social media are some of the main reasons for the rising anxiety levels.
Jean Twenge is a psychology professor at San Diego State University in California. Twenge said it is not a coincidence that youth mental health issues have risen with the number of phones. “What a lot of teens told me is that social media and their phones feel mandatory,” she said. This use of phones has led to a loss of sleep and face-to-face interactions necessary for their mental well-being.

Everyone experiences anxious moments now and then. But for those with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, the worry is frequent and overwhelming, often interfering with everyday activities.
Now, a small study suggests that these burdensome feelings can be quelled with a little heart-pumping activity.
Although stress serves a purpose and can help us react in dangerous situations, too much anxiety can impact our brain in unexpected ways. When the brain thinks you are in danger, it triggers the release of hormones, which include adrenaline and cortisol.
Dr. Alex Anastasiou, a psychiatrist specializing in anxiety treatment, says that cortisol in particular can affect everything from decision-making to memory.
