On behalf of the ADAA Board of Directors, I am pleased to share some very exciting news with our membership.
Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin is launching the Institute for Early Life Adversity Research within the Department of Psychiatry as part of the Mulva Clinic for the Neurosciences. Adversity in early life, in the forms of child abuse and neglect, is a major risk factor for developing serious medical and psychiatric disorders that result in both a shortened lifespan for individuals exposed to early life trauma and a marked increase in healthcare utilization.
ADAA's Board of Director's own Charles B. Nemeroff, MD, PhD has been chosen to lead this new initiative as of September 30, 2018. Under his leadership this new institute will bring together experts from a variety of disciplines to develop a multipronged approach to address this major public health problem.
Congratulations Charlie — from all of us at ADAA. They could not have chosen a better leader!
Beth Salcedo, MD
ADAA Board President
Tonic, VICE Media's health and wellness site, is launching a newsletter in the coming weeks called Coping in partnership with ADAA. As a site that strives to bring frank, editorial and video to young people who want to be healthier — and want to learn about the forces that prevent us from doing so — Tonic has identified mental health as a key area of concern and interest for their readers. Coping will focus on anxiety and depression, and through story links, embedded videos, and user-generated content, will take a look at what tools and strategies can help people find relief and support. ADAA member Michelle Lozano, MFT will be working with Tonic to review content prior to publication and to answer readers' mental health questions (email Tonic at firstname.lastname@example.org). Sign up to have Coping arrive in your inbox weekly.

A low dose of ketamine infusion can provide a rapid and sustained antidepressant effect in patients with treatment-resistant depression, according to a study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders. In addition, a subanesthetic dose of ketamine was shown to improve functional impairment traditionally associated with treatment-resistant depression.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved a new magnetic stimulation device that is designed to treat patients with treatment-resistant major depressive disorder in just three minutes. The Express Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation device, from MagVenture, has been approved by the FDA — expediting the treatment session speed set only by the company's preceding TMS device when it was first cleared in 2008.

There may be a genetic link between mood disorders and the body's internal clock, a new study suggests. In this study, researchers analyzed data from 71,500 people in the United Kingdom and identified two areas of the genome — the complete set of human genes — that may contain variants that disrupt the body's natural circadian cycles of activity and rest.
New research suggests that depression in women may affect their children's stress and physical well-being throughout life. For the Depression & Anxiety study, researchers followed 125 children from birth to 10 years. At 10 years, mothers' and children's cortisol and secretory immunoglobulin were measured, mother-child interaction were observed, mothers and children underwent psychiatric diagnoses, and children's externalizing and internalizing symptoms were reported.

A brain stimulation device to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder has received approval for marketing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Transcranial magnetic stimulation uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. The FDA approved it as a treatment for major depression in 2008 and for treating pain associated with certain migraines in 2013.

Veterans with advanced lung cancer face a significantly higher risk of suicide compared to the already high rate among veterans. But this suicide risk is greatly reduced when they receive at least one palliative care visit, according to a new study published in the Annals of the American Thoracic Society.
People with depression who are treated with nerve stimulation experience significant improvements in quality of life, even when their depression symptoms don't completely subside, according to results of a national study led by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The findings were published online Aug. 21 in The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.
Depression and heart disease often overlap. As many as one in five people with heart disease has depression. This common mood disorder is also linked to a higher risk of dying of heart disease. Now, new research lends further support for the protective role of exercise for both conditions. The study was published online June 27 in JAMA Psychiatry.
A new study finds that sleep-deprived people feel lonelier and less inclined to engage with others, avoiding close contact much like those with social anxiety.
Worse still, that alienating vibe makes the sleep-deprived more socially unattractive to others, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Communications. And well-rested people feel lonely after just a brief encounter with a sleep-deprived person.

Systematic screening for anxiety, disability and pain can increase psychological referral rates among pediatric patients with abdominal pain, according to a study published in the August issue of Pediatrics. Researchers implemented a screening process for patient-reported anxiety, functional disability and pain levels in a large gastroenterology division within a major medical center.
The New York Times
Six middle- and high-school students sat around a table on a Monday afternoon, watching a psychologist write three letters on a whiteboard: O-C-D. What does OCD stand for?" the psychologist, Avital Falk, asked the group. "Obsessive-compulsive disorder," answered a timid 12-year-old boy wearing a blue blazer and red tie. "What makes it a disorder?" Falk asked.
National Public Radio
An estimated 12.8 percent of adolescents in the U.S. experience at least one episode of major depression, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. According to previous studies, many of those teens' mental health is linked to depression in their parents. But new research suggests there's a flipside to that parental effect: When teens are treated for depression, their parents' mental health improves, too.
