Researchers investigated the value of the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9) as a screening tool for suicide risk as well as major depressive disorder for adolescents.
Researchers investigated whether people with behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia and schizophrenia have similar neurobiological patterns.
Researchers investigated whether d-methylphenidate and guanfacine show promise as a combination treatment for ADHD in children.
Researchers investigated whether nontobacco nicotine products such as flavored nicotine gum, lozenges, tablets, and gummies are prevalent nicotine products used by adolescents.
Researchers investigated whether high-potency cannabis may be associated with a higher risk of psychosis and cannabis use disorder compared with lower-potency products.
A group of researchers explored whether individuals who experienced ongoing discrimination had a higher risk for depression.
Researchers investigated whether preteens who don’t get 9 hours of sleep per night are more likely to experience depression, thought problems, and other neurocognitive issues.
Study authors investigated whether adults with both cannabis and alcohol use disorders have a higher mortality risk than those with cannabis use disorder alone.
While several studies have examined the impact of social support on anxiety levels during the pandemic, the researchers took this 1 step further, examining living arrangements and how support from family, friends, and significant others affect mental health.
Although previous studies have examined the association between e-cigarettes and cannabis use among teenagers, the researchers wanted more recent data given the growing popularity of vaping.
Researchers conducted a study of adults with dual diagnoses of psychiatric and substance use disorders which was published in Psychiatry Research.
Previous studies have connected high brain iron levels with Alzheimer disease, thus researchers examined if there is an association with brain iron levels and heavy alcohol use.
Researchers analyzed the associations between categorical and continuous and harmonized measures of depression and global functioning in older adults with bipolar disorder.
To learn more about the impact of depression therapy on anxiety symptoms, researchers conducted a randomized controlled clinical trial with teenagers to compare the results of personalized depression therapy to a program that does not match their risk factors.
An earlier study identified several modifiable risk factors for dementia. As the number of people living with dementia has grown, researchers decided an updated analysis was needed regarding the connection between these risk factors and dementia.
Investigators searched PubMed, Cochrane Library, Medline, Embase, CNKI, Weipu, and Wanfang databases for eligible studies through March 2022.
While doctors usually screen for risky alcohol use behavior, they only ask about frequency and quantity, not about the social context. To get more clarity on the topic, the researchers surveyed 12th grade high school students and collected follow-up data at ages 23, 24 and 35.
To explore mortality rates, the researchers who conducted the current study compared the mortality rate in US Medicare patients diagnosed with Parkinson disease who used either Pimavanserin or atypical antipsychotics.
Suicide rates among teens increased by over 50% in the past decade, and mood disorders are one of the primary risk factors. To better understand suicide rates among teens, a group of researchers consulted the literature.
While traditional cardiac rehabilitation offers numerous benefits, including lower risk for complications and mood improvements, the researchers wanted to compare its results with a Tai Chi-specific protocol.
Only about 60% of patients respond well to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and medication treatments for anxiety disorders. With anxiety disorders on the rise, the need for alternatives for patients who don’t respond to first-line treatments or who have residual symptoms is imperative.

The Eating Recovery Center, a national, multisite treatment facility for patients with eating disorders, outlines strategies for using family-based treatment practices with adolescents who are receiving inpatient care for an eating disorder.
Researchers explored the neurobiology related to reward-based reinforcement learning and psychomotor retardation in patients in remission from MDD.
Researchers sought to find mechanisms of impaired impulsivity control in patients with BD responding to emotion and compare them to patients with schizophrenia.
To better identify and categorize symptoms, researchers developed a machine learning model to “redraw boundaries” within early psychosis.
The researchers recruited 96 overweight or obese individuals between the ages of 25 and 50 with no history of type 1 or type 2 diabetes and no clinical depression diagnosis.
The researchers conducted secondary analysis of a multi-site CET trial using 86 individuals recently diagnosed with a schizophrenia spectrum disorder.
