ADAA is excited to announce a collaborative partnership with the National Council for Behavioral Health.
Mental illness is a growing concern among older adults in our nation. In the past year, about one in six people aged 50 or older had a mental illness, yet only half received mental health services. In addition, resources or information about identifying and responding to mental illness in older adults can be hard for service providers to find.
Join the National Council and ADAA for "Mental Illness Among Older Adults," at 1 p.m. ET on Friday, Aug. 24 to learn how to support the mental health of older adults. There is no charge for this webinar. Please note that this webinar is not CE eligible.
Dr. Brent P. Forester, chief of geriatric psychiatry at McLean Hospital will help attendees:
Register here today.
- Understand general trends of mental health among older adults.
- Explain the impact of depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and other mental illnesses on older adults.
- Understand the nuances of Alzheimer’s and dementia and the impact these brain diseases have on the mental well-being of older adults.

Depression is among the leading causes of disability worldwide, with more than 300 million people suffering from this mental illness, according to the World Health Organization. Despite how common depression is, scientists still have a lot to learn about it. Among what is known is that depression is not a single disease but a variety of feelings and behaviors that may have different underlying causes.
Women fill a large percentage of service industry jobs in the United States, and those who rely on unpredictable tips for much of their compensation often face financial instability that could lead to higher rates of mental health issues, new research suggests. Service workers who count on tips are at greater risk for depression, sleep problems and stress compared with employees who work in nontipped positions.

Remember the days when people would bring photos of celebrities to the plastic surgeon's office and ask for Angelina Jolie's lips or Brad Pitt's jaw line? That's not the case anymore. Now, people want to look like themselves — heavily edited or filtered versions of themselves, that is. Doctors have spotted a trend of people bringing in their own selfies, usually edited with a smartphone application.

We all complain when it gets too hot, whether it means running extra air conditioning, working outdoors during peak sun, or only having indoor fans for cooling off. Now, a new study links climate change’s impact on temperatures to suicide rates. To summarize, "authors predict that approximately 14,000 people in the U.S. — and as many as 26,000 — could die by suicide by the year 2050 if global temperatures continue rising, even after controlling for every other major variable that could affect suicide rates."
Researchers have discovered an inherited brain pathway that increases the risk of anxiety in monkeys, and if the research translates to humans, it could have huge implications for treating overwhelming anxiety. While it's true that anxiety disorders are one of the most pervasive and debilitating mental disorders that we know of, affecting millions of people worldwide, that doesn't mean we fully understand them.
A three-week intensive outpatient therapy program has been found to significantly reduce post-traumatic stress disorder and depression symptoms among military veterans. The intervention adds to the growing evidence that suggests providing several hours of therapy over several consecutive days is an effective method to address the unmet mental health needs of military veterans.

Fearfulness and shyness in babies and toddlers predict features of autism at age 7, according to a new study. But early problems with impulse control and hyperactivity do not augur autism features. The findings suggest that autism and anxiety have similar roots in the brain, but autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder do not, says lead investigator Tony Charman, chair of clinical child psychology at King's College London.
A few months ago, Alan Ferguson decided he was ready to die — for the third time. In 2014, he attempted suicide twice, and the persistent thoughts of "I need to be dead" were echoing in his brain once again. Now 54 years old, Ferguson was diagnosed with clinical depression when he was 18. Since then, he estimates, he's been prescribed more than a dozen medications all to little or no avail.
A new study shows that care and support from peers who have also experienced mental health problems reduces readmission rates for people who have recently left acute mental health care. Published in The Lancet, the trial conducted in England found that fewer people who received this type of support were readmitted to acute care a year after the study began, compared to people who only received a workbook.
In a trend that suggests opioid addicts are turning to new fixes, a government report shows that use of an unapproved antidepressant is becoming more widespread in the United States. Tianeptine is used in some European, Asian and Latin American countries for treatment of depression and anxiety. But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved use of the drug in the United State.
Among individuals with head and neck cancer, those who experienced childhood trauma were more likely to have advanced cancer, to have higher alcohol consumption and to experience symptoms of anxiety and depression. Published early online in CANCER, the findings indicate that childhood trauma history should be considered during treatment for HNC.
Functional connectivities among certain brain regions may mediate the association between sleep quality and depressive symptoms, suggests research published in JAMA Psychiatry. Researchers recruited 1,017 participants from the Human Connectome Project, an existing trial with a study population generally representative of the United States.
Former Panthers and Ravens wide receiver and current NFL Network analyst Steve Smith Sr. acknowledged his battle with depression in a story published to NFL.com last week. Despite playing 16 seasons and catching 1,031 passes for 14,731 yards and scoring 81 touchdowns, Smith said he constantly doubted himself and tried to suppress any public acknowledgement of what he used to see as a weakness.
