According to a recently-published interview with John Torous, MD, MBI, Director of the Digital Psychiatry Division at the Department of Psychiatry at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, there are seven great evidenced-based mental health apps you should consider. Evidence-based means they’ve met the minimum requirements by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or have at least one randomized clinical research study that supports their use and effectiveness. The recommendation for these evidence-based mental health apps comes in an interview with Dr. Torous found in the Oct. 2019 issue of The Carlat Psychiatr...

CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that mTBI may disrupt neural circuits regulating sleep among OIF/OEF/OND veterans. Prospective, polysomnographic assessment of muscle tone and behavioral events during REM sleep is needed to characterize the physiology of DEBs in this population.

Abstract Women are at greater risk than men for developing posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after trauma exposure. Sleep, especially rapid-eye-movement sleep (REMS), has been considered a contributing factor to the development of PTSD symptoms through its effects on the processing of emotional memories. However, it remains unknown if sex and sex hormones play a role in the hypothesized impact of sleep on the development of PTSD. Animal models have methodological advantages over human studies in investigating this research question; however, animal models of sleep in PTSD have been tested only with males. C57BL...

Only few studies have investigated pharmacologic treatment for juvenile PTSD. Antiadrenergic agents are an interesting option, because of an autonomic nervous system hyperactivation in PTSD. Prazosin, an α-1 antagonist, has proven its efficacy in an adult population. In the pediatric population, few data support its use for nightmares and sleep disturbances in PTSD. We aim to assess the efficacy and safety of prazosin in a pediatric population.

Sleep disturbance and emotion processing abnormalities are core features of pediatric PTSD (pPTSD), and a wealth of evidence indicates that sleep is crucial for optimal daytime emotional function. Furthermore, sleep not only plays a crucial role in consolidating the content of emotional experience but also in reducing its affective potency. Despite these relationships, the contributions of sleep to emotion processing in pPTSD have received little attention.
