(Anesth Analg. 2018;126:1598–1605) There is an established association between chronic pain and depression in nonobstetric populations. However, only a few studies in obstetric patients have examined the possible association between labor pain and postpartum depression (PPD), the latter of which places mothers and infants at risk for suicide, infanticide, and developmental/behavioral problems. Consequently, the authors of the present study assess whether or not the use of effective epidural analgesia during labor is associated with reduced PPD symptomatology.

This study tested the integrated model of suicide help-seeking to examine help-seeking behavior as a continuous decision-making process. Data were drawn from the 2011 and 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (N = 1,414). Results from structural equational modeling analyses demonstrated that the integrated model fit reasonably well among the sample. Suicide help-seeking behavior is characterized by an inequitable access, where enabling factors affect throughout the help-seeking pathway. The results provide a foundation for future help-seeking interventions. PMID: 30451101 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

However, “suicide is a public health problem that is twice the s ize of the homicide pro...
