Running away during adolescence and future homelessness: The amplifying role of mental health.

Running away during adolescence and future homelessness: The amplifying role of mental health. Am J Orthopsychiatry. 2019 Jan 31;: Authors: Williams A, Giano Z, Merten M Abstract Previous research indicates a positive link between youth runaway episodes and the likelihood of homelessness in later adolescence and early adulthood. An adolescent's decision to run away from home often accompanies depressive symptomology compared with stably housed youth. The present study used a large, nationally representative sample of 8,560 youth to identify links among runaway behavior, changes in depressive symptomology during the transition from adolescence to emerging adulthood, and homelessness. Results suggest that running away during adolescence is linked with later homelessness across depressive symptom classes. In fact, even a single runaway episode as a teenager tripled the odds of reporting homelessness by young adulthood. However, the magnitude of the association varies based on depressive symptom trajectories. Adolescents reporting high levels of depressive symptomology that increased over time were 6 times more likely to experience homelessness, compared with youth with consistently low depressive symptoms. Interestingly, among participants who reported never running away, this same high/increasing depressive symptoms group were less likely to report homelessness than were peers with consistently low depressive symptoms. These findings point to a potential re...

ConclusionsThis study shows that a relapse is accompanied by an increase in MS-related fatigue. Moreover, autonomic dysfunctions and introversion, more than depression and apathy, play a major role in the explanation of MS-related fatigue. This finding represents additional evidence for the relationship between inflammation, vagal afferent signalling, autonomic dysfunctions, introversion and the feeling of MS-related fatigue.KeywordsMultiple Sclerosis, fatigue, relapse, autonomic dysfunctions, vagal afferents

The current study examined how restricted and repetitive behaviors or interests (RRBs) may be related to symptoms of depression and anxiety. Participants included 35 children with ASD (29 male, 6 female) between 3 and 14 years. Youth who met clinical cut-off for depression and anxiety demonstrated increased self-injurious be...

Cardiac surgical patients are at particularly high risk of serotonin syndrome due to the prevalence of depression in patients with advanced cardiac disease, many of whom receive multiple serotonergic agents in the perioperative period. Here, we describe a case of postoperative serotonin syndrome following methylen...

ConclusionCRS is associated with an increased incidence of asthma, AMI, stroke, anxiety disorder, and depression. Therefore, we suggest that clinicians should monitor CRS patients carefully, and optimize management as a means to potentially decrease these other associated comorbid conditions.

As it can both be costly and negatively impact care quality, clinician turnover is a concern within community behavioral health settings. When it comes to patient outcomes, though, a 12-monthstudy published inPsychiatric Services in Advance observed mixed, and surprising, results, suggesting that turnover could have different impacts on patients depending on their initial symptoms.Researchers found that turnover was associated with harmful effects for patients who were functioning well at the start of the study, yet, “Curiously, we also found that turnover was associated with no changes or positive changes” in ...

Fatigue has been described in SCA1, SCA3, but has not been objectively investigated in SCA10. Our aim is to investigate the presence and related causal factors of fatigue among SCA10 patients.
