AbstractEvidence suggests that HIV-related stigma is a contributing factor to mental health and substance use problems among people living with HIV (PLWH). Limited research, however, has examined the differential effects that multiple stigma constructs, specifically, anticipated, enacted, and internalized stigma may have on mental health and alcohol use disorders among PLWH. Furthermore, no studies have examined this relationship within the larger context of urban life stressors. The purpose of this study was to examine associations of an overall HIV-related stigma measure and four HIV stigma subscales on depression, anxie...

The majority of veterans reported knowing about Vet Centers (72%), the Veterans Crisis Line (65%), and t he VA Center for Suicide Prevention (54%). However, only 5% had attended a community event related to veteran suicide and 2% had used VA’s Virtual Hope Box.

Abstract Few longitudinal studies have explored to date whether minority status in disadvantaged neighborhoods conveys risk for negative mental health outcomes, and the mechanisms possibly leading to such risk. We investigated how minority status influences four developmental mental health outcomes in an ethnically homogeneous sample of Puerto Rican youth. We tested models of risk for major depressive disorder (MDD) and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), depressive and anxiety symptoms (DAS), and psychological distress, as Puerto Rican youth (aged 5-13 years) transitioned to early adulthood (15-29 years) in two s...

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is one of the most common anxiety disorders. Interoception, particularly heartbeat perception, plays an important role in the pathophysiology of anxiety disorders. However, the neural mechanisms underlying abnormal heartbeat perception in GAD remain insufficiently understood. In the present study, patients with GAD and healthy control subjects underwent an eye-close (EC) resting state (interoceptive) and eye-open (EO) resting state (exteroceptive) without paying conscious attention to heartbeat. Electrocardiography (ECG) and electroencephalography (EEG) signals were recorded at the same t...
