Although depression is one of the leading psychiatric disorders, its cause remains unclear. A recent study found that those affected by depressive disorder have a larger hypothalamus compared to their healthy counterparts. This could explain why many sufferers show increased levels of the stress hormone cortisol and are very often afflicted with periods of tension.
A new survey reveals that while college years may be a time of excitement and optimism they are also often stressful. And, the stress is accompanied by increased mental health diagnoses and the risk of suicide or suicidal thoughts. Brigham and Women's hospital investigators queried more than 67,000 college students from across more than 100 institutions. The study appears online in the journal Depression & Anxiety.
Levels of anxiety and depression seen in people who have a common heart rhythm disorder called atrial fibrillation may be affected by how the heart condition is treated, a new study suggests. Past studies have shown that anxiety, distress and depression are common among people with AFib. The study was published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.
Humans and other mammals react to stressful situations through a series of well-orchestrated evolutionary adaptations. When faced with a predator looking for its next meal, or with worry of losing a job, our bodies release a cascade of stress hormones. Our heart rate spikes, breath quickens, muscles tense up and beads of sweat appear.
Alcoholism and depression often go hand-in-hand. According to studies, alcoholism has risen sharply in the 2000s, to the point that one such study suggests that one in eight people meet the criteria as an alcoholic. elp may be on the way. Purdue University researchers have developed a technology that may treat alcohol use disorder by reducing alcohol intake while also having the potential to treat depression.
Text message reminders could help patients with bipolar I disorder stick with a medication regimen, according to a study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research. In a new trial, researchers studied clinically stable outpatients aged 18 to 65 years who had been diagnosed with BD-I. Criteria for inclusion included individuals who had been on a medication plan for one year or longer and who were able to receive and read text messages.
Primary care physicians rarely package depression assessments with patient screenings for hazardous alcohol use, according to a study. In research published this week in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine, scientists found screenings identify symptoms of depression that doctors may not otherwise notice.
Childhood trauma is tied to impaired social cognition in adults diagnosed with major psychiatric disorders, according to a new Irish study published in the journal European Psychiatry. The study findings show that a traumatic early social environment often leads to social cognitive problems and greater illness severity for people with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, major depressive disorder or PTSD.
Arthritis is common in individuals with varying degrees of depression, according to a new International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry study. In the analysis of National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2011-2014 data on U.S. adults aged 50 years and older, the prevalence of arthritis was 55.0 percent, 62.9 percent and 67.8 percent in participants with minor, moderate and severe depression, respectively.

Elementary, middle and high school students across the state of New York have a new topic on their educational agendas as they head back to class this fall: mental health. On July 1, a new law took effect in New York, which adds a paragraph to the state's Education Law mandating mental health as part of health education in schools.

Children registering for school in Florida this year were asked to reveal some history about their mental health. The new requirement is part of a law rushed through the state legislature after the February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The state's school districts now must ask whether a child has ever been referred for mental health services on registration forms for new students.
Caroline Shannon-Karasik writes: I have generalized anxiety disorder. When I explain it to people, they often say something like, "Well, yeah, I feel anxious sometimes, too" — which, honestly, tells me they don't really get it. Feeling anxious once in a while and having anxiety are two very different things — the former constitutes normal day-to-day worries, while the latter begins with a thought or feeling that you become fixated upon.
