Clinical characteristics and mental health outcomes for women admitted to an Australian Mother-Baby Unit: a focus on borderline personality disorder and emotional dysregulation?

CONCLUSIONS: Admission to this Mother-Baby Unit on mothers' self-report scales showed improvement in mothers' mental health and the relationship that they have with their infant. Given the high prevalence of borderline personality disorder and emotional dysregulation identified within the population, treatment implications and possible consequences for the infant are discussed for this client group.

CONCLUSIONS: Schema theory proves to be a relevant approach in bipolar disorders, and early maladaptive schemas appear to be important to take into account in clinical practice. Nevertheless, in order to propose schemas therapy appropriately, it is necessary to specify if early maladaptive schemas are activated and to specify therapeutic indications because of clinical heterogeneity. Moreover, data do not yet allow us to understand the disparity of profiles during the inter-episode period. Indeed, a French research perspective is being considered that will prefer a person-oriented approach. PMID: 31767255 [PubMed - as ...

Differentiating the bipolar disorders (BDs) from borderline personality disorder (BPD) can be challenging diagnostically, because certain symptoms and traits, such as depression, aggression, and interpersonal relationships, are common to both conditions. The fact that all individuals diagnosed with BD do not meet BPD criteria suggests that both unique and related facets of the 2 conditions exist. Identifying related and unrelated items between BD and BPD should improve diagnostic accuracy. In addition, assessing for BPD features in youths at high risk for bipolar disorder can be clinically relevant.

CONCLUSION: Mortality is substantially elevated in all SMI patients. The results underline the need to remove barriers to adequate general medical care, both on the patient and the provider side, to reduce excess mortality. PMID: 31366432 [PubMed - in process]

This study involved 714 adult patients with a primary diagnosis of BD per DSM-IV criteria who were admitted to the psychiatric unit at an academic hospital in Houston, TX between July 2013 and July 2018. All patients completed the BPQ within 72 hours of admission. Statistical analysis was used to detect correlations between severity of BD, length of stay (LOS), and scores on the BPQ. A machine learning model was constructed to predict the parameters affecting patients’ readmission rates within 30 days. Results: Analysis revealed that the severity of certain BPD traits at baseline was associated with mood state and...

Impulsivity represents one of the pivotal characteristics of bipolar disorder (BD). Structural magnetic resonance imaging techniques have already demonstrated a relationship between high levels of impulsivity and reduced subcortical and limbic structure volumes in subjects with cocaine abuse, depression, and borderline personality disorder. However, such relationship has not established yet in BP. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between impulsivity and limbic and subcortical volumes in patients with BD.

In this study, using multiple linear regression analysis, we found that decreased emotion coping appraisal of resilience in young adults was explained by an increased tendency to update beliefs about cue–outcome associative probability in a volatile environment and the increase in the parental verbal abuse experienced in early childhood. The total scores of resilience appraisals were also explained in the same manner (see Supplementary Tables 4 and 7). In addition, we did not find any effect of gender on the results both with whole subject (Figure 4) and in the gender-matched subgroup (see Supplementary Figure 3).Not...

ak H Abstract Psychiatric disorders and psychological problems are common in patients with diabetes mellitus. There is a twofold increase in depression which is associated with suboptimal glycemic control and increased morbidity and mortality. Other psychiatric disorders with a higher incidence of diabetes mellitus are cognitive impairment, dementia, disturbed eating behavior, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, bipolar disorders and borderline personality disorder. The coincidence of mental disorders and diabetes mellitus has unfavorable influences on metabolic control and micro- and macroangiopathic comp...

This study provides support for the notion that non-judgmental attention to the present moment facilitates the integration of regions in neural networks that are related to cognition, attention, and sensation. Introduction Originating in Buddhist traditions, mindfulness training has made its way into Western culture as a method to reduce stress, enhance emotional regulation, and reduce symptoms in a variety of mental health disorders (Teasdale et al., 1995; Farb et al., 2012; Cavanagh et al., 2013; Tabak et al., 2015). Indeed, mindfulness has been shown to reduce symptoms of depression (Chiesa et al., 2015), bipol...
