The first time Jessica Calise can remember her nine-year-old son Joseph's anxiety spiking was about a year ago, when he had to perform at a school concert. He said his stomach hurt and he might throw up. "We spent the whole performance in the bathroom," she recalls. Jessica decided to enroll in an experimental program, one that was very different from other therapy for childhood anxiety that she knew about. It wasn't Joseph who would be seeing a therapist every week — it would be her.
The program was part of a Yale University study that treated children's anxiety by teaching their parents new ways of responding to it.

Suicide attempts and talk about suicide are rising alarmingly among America's kids, with emergency departments seeing a near doubling of cases over less than a decade, a new study reveals.
Among children ages five to 18, suicidal thoughts and attempts led to more than 1.1 million ER visits in 2015 — up from about 580,000 in 2007, according to an analysis of U.S. data.

A new paper published in Nature Reviews Neurology suggests that recent advances in deep brain stimulation for Parkinson's disease could lead to treatments for conditions such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, Gilles de la Tourette syndrome and depression.
Last fall, a person addicted to cocaine arrived at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. There, he or she watched a video of people using cocaine and was shown a small bag of what appeared to be either crack or powder cocaine, along with other drug-related paraphernalia. These cues were specifically designed to evoke memories of previous cocaine use and trigger intense craving. Shortly afterward, the individual was given a powerful pharmaceutical called propranolol that interferes with the brain’s ability to form memories. All of this may sound like a bad idea, but it’s actually a new and promising experimental treatment for addiction.
Lawson Health Research Institute via EurekAlert!
In a series of studies from Lawson Health Research Institute, Western University and ICES, researchers examined the impact of Canada's only early intervention program for youth with mood and anxiety disorders. Results suggest that treatment at the First Episode Mood and Anxiety Program at London Health Sciences Centre leads to improvements in patients' symptoms and functioning, access to psychiatric care in the most appropriate settings and fewer visits to the emergency department.
Cognitive behavioral therapy delivered through most methods was effective and well-tolerated for treating depression, a network meta-analysis found.
Patients undergoing individual, group, telephone, and guided self-help therapies showed reduced depressive symptoms compared with patients in usual care, although unguided self-help CBT was ranked lower than the other delivery formats, and was not more effective than normal care, reported Pim Cuijpers, PhD, of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in the Netherlands, and colleagues.
History of childhood trauma was linked to functional dysconnectivity in the brains of adults with major depressive disorder, even though brain imaging took place decades after trauma occurrence, according to results of a study with a large, multisite functional MRI dataset.
Nearly half of American youths struggle with a mental illness before turning 18, while 12 percent have experienced a bout of depression. But even though playing sports on a regular basis can boost physical and mental health, for some serious high-school athletes — many of whom train year-round and might need an athletic scholarship to afford college tuition — sports can be a key contributor to depression and anxiety.
University of California - Berkeley via Medical Xpress
The number of 18- to 26-year-old students who report suffering from anxiety disorder has doubled since 2008, perhaps as a result of rising financial stress and increased time spent on digital devices, according to preliminary findings released April 18 by a team of UC Berkeley researchers.
Parkinson's News Today
Yoga focused on mindfulness — a mental exercise focused on accepting oneself in the present — could lower anxiety and depression as well as motor impairment in people with mild to moderate Parkinson’s disease, a study says.
The study, “Effects of Mindfulness Yoga vs Stretching and Resistance Trainiang Exercises on Anxiety and Depression for People With Parkinson Disease: A Randomized Clinical Trial,” was published in the journal JAMA Neurology.
