Here, we present data on illness in the spouse and the parents of patients with bipolar disorder as they affect illness in the offspring. A history of psychiatric illness (depression, bipolar disorder, suicide attempt, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, and "other" illness) was elicited for the parents, spouse, and the offspring of 968 patients with bipolar disorder (540 of whom had children) who gave informed consent for partic...

A history of psychiatric illness (depression, bipolar disorder, suicide attempt, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, and “other” illness) was elicited for the parents, spouse, and the offspring of 968 patients with bipolar disorder (540 of whom had children) who gave informed consent for participation in a treatment outcome network. Assortative mating for a mood disorder in the spouse and parents in those f...

Tamnes, Erik Söderman, Ingrid AgartzAbstractThe hippocampus is a complex structure consisting of subregions with specialized cytoarchitecture and functions. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies in psychotic disorders show hippocampal subfield abnormalities, but affected regions differ between studies. We here present an overview of hippocampal anatomy and function relevant to psychosis, and the first systematic review and meta-analysis of MRI studies of hippocampal subfield morphology in s...

Statistics show that 65% of bipolar disorder (BD) patients have one psychiatric comorbidity, 42% have two and 24% - three or more (McElroy et al., 2001). What is more, 45% of BD patients have co-morbid alcohol abuse/dependence (AAD) (Farren et al., 2012). Co-transmission of AAD in families has been reported for both disorders (BD and AAD) (Maier and Merikangas, 1996). Adoption studies revealed that substance abuse and BD was more common in biological relatives than in adoptive relatives, what confirms the genetic contribution (Ingraham and Wender, 1992).

Abstract Exposure to ethanol in utero leads to several brain development disorders including retinal abnormalities whose underlying cellular pathogenesis remains elusive. We recently reported that fetal alcohol exposure (FAE) in vervet monkeys induces anomalies of full-field electroretinogram (ERG) waveforms that suggest premature aging of the retina. The goal of this study is to characterize the anatomo-functional mechanisms underlying the retinal changes observed in fetal alcohol exposed (FAE) monkeys, and age- and sex-matched normals. First, we examined in vivo the fundus of the eyes, measured intraocular press...

Conclusion: SUD is highly prevalent among Canadian adolescents with BP and is associated with anxiety disorders, behavioural disorders, and trait impulsivity. Targeting these clinical characteristics may help guide preventative and treatment strategies for this population. PMID: 30038653 [PubMed]

ConclusionPhysical pain was highly reported in homeless patients with severe mental illness with insufficient care. Physical pain should be systematically explored and treated in this population. Bipolar disorders, antidepressant consumption and female gender may be targeted in priority. Age and psychotic symptomatology were found to influence self-reported pain in a marginal way.

The use of substances, such as alcohol, is common among people living with bipolar disorder (BD). Data from the Epidemiologic Catchment Area (ECA) study showed that 43.6% and 33.6% of adults with BD had experience a comorbid alcohol or drug use disorder respectively during their lifetime, a prevalence estimate that is 5 to 8 times greater than for people without a mental disorder (Regier  et al., 1990). Subsequent studies have confirmed the association between the use of substances and BD,(Hunt et al., 2016) which is concerning because this association increases health morbidity and mortality (Whiteford...

CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of mental illness was raised in people withpsoriasis and this may lead to a greater risk of self-harm. Nevertheless, having psoriasis does not appear to be associated with an increased risk of suicide. Healthcare professionals caring for patients with psoriasis should continue to monitor and tackle effectively the psychological needs of these individuals. This article is protected by copyright.

Suicide rates are high and have only been increasing over the years. Over 800,000 people die all over the world by suicide each year. A proportion of the suicides are murder suicides resulting in additional loss of life. Attempts at suicide occur more frequently and we have about one million suicide attempts occurring each year. Suicide is a heart-breaking problem that is growing and needs to be addressed in as many ways as is possible. Understanding the risk factors, knowing the warning signs and what to do about them, is a crucial step. The more the awareness the greater the impact on suicide prevention. Risk Factors f...
