CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that people who die by suicide while under the influence of alcohol are more likely to be under acute stress (e.g. separation) and not have earlier psychiatric conditions, except substance use. This highlights the importance of more strict alcohol policies, but also the need to improve substance use treatment. PMID: 31973775 [PubMed - in process]

The first time I felt loss was at the age of ten when my grandfather passed away. I remember it being an awkward situation that no one talked about. Death was not explained to me, nor any feelings that I had associated with the loss of such a kind man in my life. When my mother died, I was in my twenties. I had two children that were quite young. My immediate concern was talking to them about the loss, explaining death, and allowing them an opportunity to explore what they are thinking and feeling in a safe space. I enlisted the help of the book by Hans Wilhelm called Waldo, Tell Me About Dying, in order to trudge through...

Nearly 25% or parents who experience perinatal loss develop long-term adverse psychosocial outcomes resulting from intense grief, such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, posttraumatic stress disorder, and suicidal ideation. The majority of perinatal loss research has focused on miscarriage and stillbirth, necessitating investigation into the impact of lethal congenital anomalies.

Depression is a common pediatric problem affecting approximately 25% of U.S. adolescents and up to 35% of patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Suicide is associated with mood disorders and is a leading cause of death for youth ages 10-25. Despite known risks of depression, up to 75% of depressed youth go unrecognized. Recently published guidelines recommend annual screening for youth 12 and older diagnosed with IBD (Mackner et  al., 2019). We sought to implement these guidelines in a large outpatient pediatric gastroenterology practice.

This Review focuses on transdiagnostic psychological processes, (ie, those of relevance for both c...
