Mental illnesses ranging from depression to schizophrenia show a great degree of overlap in the genes that may contribute to them, a large, new study shows. Researchers said the findings should deepen the understanding of how various psychiatric disorders arise. Eventually, they might even change the way the conditions are diagnosed and treated.

While depictions of violence affect many children differently, those with an anxiety disorder are more likely to experience a negative impact. "Children who have a preexisting anxiety disorder are at greater risk for reacting more viscerally to violent or frightening images or stories," said Dr. Victor Fornari, director of child and adolescent psychiatry at Zucker Hillside Hospital in Queens, New York City.
New research suggests an expanded review of pediatric anxiety disorders is necessary as successful treatment of anxiety issues in childhood may not extend to young adulthood. Pediatric anxiety disorders are common psychiatric illnesses, affecting approximately 10 percent of children. Past research discovered that 12 weeks of sertraline and/or CBT were effective in reducing anxiety and improving functioning.
With news of rising suicide rates, there is a growing movement to remove the stigma associated with mental health throughout the nation. That effort includes college campuses, where previous national studies showed that 11 percent of students reported suicidal thoughts but only 24 percent got the treatment they needed and that number has since increased.
Negative experiences on social media are associated with an increase in depressive symptoms, according to research published in Depression and Anxiety. Although researchers also found that positive experiences on social media are associated with decreased depressive symptoms, negative social media experiences were significantly more potent.
Two out of three participants in clinical studies with previously untreatable depression experience a fast and long-lasting end to their depressive symptoms after receiving ketamine intravenously. The effects of ketamine generally last about a week — much longer than would be expected with ketamine's six-hour half-life in the body. But the exact mechanism behind ketamine’s success has remained unclear.
Being smart is a double-edged sword. Intelligent people appear to live longer, but many of the genes behind brilliance can also lead to autism, anxiety and depression, according to two new massive genetic studies. The work also is one of the first to identify the specific cell types and genetic pathways tied to intelligence and mental health.
New research reveals that when using the same evaluative tools, a professional's diagnosis of a personality disorder and an individual's self-evaluation may be relatively similar. In fact, individuals may report more personality disorder pathology than was noted by their therapists. The study suggests concerns about invalid self-reports due to under-reporting have been overstated.
Antipsychotic medication is one of the most common ways of treating people with mental health problems such as schizophrenia. In fact, more than 12.5 million people use antipsychotics in the United States alone. But while these drugs are effective, their use can lead to other health issues and a lower life expectancy, too.

Watching as a video game ensnares their child, many a parent has grumbled about "digital heroin," likening the flashing images to one of the world's most addictive substances. Now, they may have backup: The World Health Organization announced "gaming disorder" as a new mental health condition included in the 11th edition of its International Classification of Diseases, released June 18.

Researchers believe that uncovering the role of a protein that is present in our bodies may revolutionize depression treatments. A study conducted at Hiroshima University in Japan, published in the journal Neuroscience, is based on the behavior of RGS8, a protein that in humans is encoded by the RGS8 gene. This protein controls a hormone receptor called MCHR1, which helps to regulate sleep, feeding and mood.
A simple cognitive task as early as four days after a sports-related concussion activates the region of the brain that improves memory function, and may guard against developing depression or anxiety, according to a new study. While current guidelines call for traumatic brain injury patients to get plenty of rest and avoid physical and cognitive activity until symptoms subside, this new study suggests that is not the best way to recover.
The results of a study published in European Neuropsychopharmacology indicate that patients with type I bipolar disorder experienced significantly more childhood abuse, and had lower white matter integrity overall. Several relationships have been identified between early-life trauma, bipolar disorder and white matter integrity.
Meghan Trainor knows what it's like to feel "trapped" in a deep hole of worry and despair, but she didn't know how to describe the feeling until she heard TODAY anchor Carson Daly open up about his struggle with generalized anxiety disorder. The "All About That Bass" singer revealed earlier this year that a problem with her vocal cords triggered a long battle with depression and anxiety.
