Maybe you’re ruminating about a bad performance review. Maybe you’re ruminating about an injury that’s really been bothering you. “We are evolutionarily wired to obsess,” according to psychiatrist Britton Arey, M.D. We are wired to se...

ConclusionsThis pilot study demonstrated the feasibility and potential utility of an mHealth platform to assist clinicians, within a men's health clinic, in detecting sleep disturbances. Disrupted sleep was revealed in well over half of this sample of patients. As a result of the growing evidence linking poor sleep and sleep disorders (eg, OSA) to the conditions relevant to men's health (eg, erectile dysfunction, hypogonadism and BPH), further efforts beyond this pilot study are necessary to identify the aetiological processes underlying the association between specific disrupted sleep disorders and urological conditions.

Abstract Auditory hallucinations (AH) are often considered a sign of a psychotic disorder. This is promoted by the DSM-5 category of Other Specified Schizophrenia Spectrum And Other Psychotic Disorder (OSSSOPD), the diagnostic criteria for which are fulfilled with the sole presence of persistent AH, in the absence of any other psychotic symptoms. And yet, persistent AH are not synonymous with having a psychotic disorder, and should therefore not be uncritically treated as such. Many people who seek treatment for persistent AH have no other psychotic symptoms, have preserved reality-testing capacities, and will nev...
