CONCLUSIONS: Tox Info Suisse recorded an average of 137 cases of agent exposure during pregnancy per year, mostly due to accidents with household products. Suicidal intentions played a role in a considerable number of exposures. Measures are needed to prevent accidental exposure of pregnant women to toxic substances and to support them in this exceptional life period. PMID: 29767826 [PubMed - in process]

This study found that professional chess players had shorter lifespans than those players who had careers outside of chess and argued that this might be due to the mental strain of international chess competition. In the present study, we focused on survival of International Chess Grandmasters (GMs) which represent players, of whom most are professional, at the highest level. In 2010, the overall life expectancy of GMs at the age of 30 years was 53.6 years, which is significantly greater than the overall weighted mean life expectancy of 45.9 years for the general population. In all three regions examined, mean life...

AbstractIn developing countries, up to 20% of maternal deaths during pregnancy are due to suicide, and being HIV-infected confers additional risk. This manuscript sought to identify perinatal correlates of suicidal ideation among women living with HIV (WLHIV) in rural South Africa. Pregnant WLHIV (N  = 681) were recruited and re-assessed at 12-months postpartum. Mean age was 28.3 (SD = 5.7) years and 68% were below the poverty line. Prenatal suicidal ideation was 39%; suicidal ideation continued for 7% at 12 months, 13% experienced incident suicidal ideation, and for 19% suicidal ideat ion ...

In my newpolicy analysis released today, I identify 65 vetting failures where the visa vetting system allowed a foreign-born person to enter the United States as an adult or older teenager when they had already radicalized —80 percent occurred before 9/11. Just 13 vetting failures have occurred since 9/11, and only one—the last one (Tashfeen Malik)—resulted in any deaths in the United States. That’s one vetting failure for every 29 million visa or status approvals, and one deadly failure for every 379 million visa or status approvals from 2002 to 2016.As I note, 9/11 is reasonable point of analysis ...

Today a physician told me she lost three colleagues to suicide in the last two months. Loma Linda Hospital just lost three young doctors to suicide in 6 months. Mount Sinai had 3 docs jump in less than 2 years — from the same building. An anesthesiologist recently told me he lost 8 of his colleagues to suicide. Each suicide should be fully investigated, yet few receive root cause analysis of the specific circumstances leading to their deaths. In January, I reported on my investigation into 757 doctor suicides in The Washington Post. (Now I’ve got nearly 900 suicides on my registry.) Recently, Dr. Oz e...

DiscussionBased on this naturalistic sample, progression of schizophrenia may follow a variety of different trajectories. Poor clinical course is common but not necessary outcome. Our results indicate heterogeneous and still relatively unsatisfactory prognosis of schizophrenia in this sample. Several predictors of outcomes have been found, and especially factors related to illness onset and high lifetime cumulative dose of antipsychotics are of interest. Birth cohort setting offers unique possibility to study long-term prognosis of schizophrenia.

Conclusions: Screening for sexual health concerns is not being documented in the majority of adolescent psychiatry inpatients. Omitting sexual health screening during hospitalizations represents a missed opportunity for investigation and management of sexual health issues in this high-risk group. As many adolescents, particular those struggling with mental illness, do not attend preventative health visits, screening for pregnancy risk and other reproductive health needs is recommended at every adolescent encounter and in all settings.
