High depressive symptom scores were found to be more common among young pregnant women today than in their mothers' generation, according to a study published online July 13 in JAMA Network Open. Researchers compared the prenatal depressive symptoms in two generations of women.
New research identifies the neural link between depression and sleep problems. The researchers found functional connectivity between the areas of the brain associated with short-term memory, self and negative emotions, which cause sufferers to dwell on bad thoughts and lead to a poor quality of sleep.
The U.S., the U.K., Japan, Northern Europe, Western Europe, China and Mexico are all suffering from abnormally hot and dangerous summer temperatures in 2018. The vast majority of climate scientists agree that climate change is making these extreme temperatures more intense and more frequent, putting global public health at risk. Still, when it comes to mental health, the effects of a red-hot weather map are rarely considered.
Specific aspects of impulsivity, including difficulty concentrating and restlessness, can predict the course of illness in patients with bipolar disorder, according to the findings of a study in the Australian & New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry. The heterogeneous experiences of individuals with bipolar disorder make it difficult to identify reliable predictors of illness severity.
Doctors are paying more attention to depression in new moms — screening for it, identifying it and treating it. But what about dads? A study just published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Pediatrics, dove deeper into this issue. Mothers can be so depressed they are unable to care for their babies, which is why healthcare providers are determined to screen new mothers for depression.

Problem-solving education is effective at preventing depressive symptoms among low-income mothers, according to a study published online June 29 in JAMA Network Open. Researchers conducted serial assessments of potential intervention mediators and depressive symptoms among low-income mothers with depressed mood, anhedonia or depression history seen at one of six Head Start agencies.
U.K. researchers have developed a new therapy approach to manage anxiety among individuals with bipolar disorder. Anxiety associated with bipolar disorder is linked to worse clinical outcomes including increased suicidality. Lancaster University investigators said that despite effective psychological treatments for anxiety, research for treatment of anxiety in bipolar disorder is not well-developed.
The first few weeks after a hospital discharge are the most critical for teens who were admitted for suicidal thoughts. A new study, published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, reveals that participating in an intervention program followed by the use of a personalized app, called BRITE, can significantly reduce suicide attempts in teens after they return home.
A new study makes the case that a supportive manager might help employees with depression miss fewer days on the job. The research, published July 23 in BMJ Open, found that workplaces where managers support and help employees with depression have lower rates of missed days on the job due to depression.
Among adults with Type 2 diabetes, a combination of heavy alcohol consumption and depression increases the risk for coronary artery disease and neuropathy, according to findings published in Diabetes. Researchers analyzed data from 1,413 adults with Type 2 diabetes aged 40 to 76 years participating in five waves of the Evaluation of Diabetes Treatment study, an annual telephone survey conducted in Canada.
You know that feeling you get when you're waiting for someone to text you back — and it's stressing you out? Your stomach is flooded with butterflies (in a bad way), you feel slightly nauseated and your heart flutters in a weird rhythm? Well, for someone with anxiety, that feeling is present a lot. If you're dating someone with anxiety, it can be hard to understand why that feeling doesn't just subside, or why you can't fix it.
The other day, I asked a couple of my friends if it was OK if I sat with them. When one of them replied that I didn't have to ask like I had been doing all semester, I realized the behavior was another portion of the (few) anxieties I have. I am a fairly extroverted person — I love getting to know people, being in areas that people are in (as long as it's on my terms) and just having fun overall.
