Since we are living in a time of extremely high statistical occurrences of childhood anxiety, depression and even suicide (which is happening at even younger ages), we need to look at the causes that are behind these difficult challenges that children, teens and young adults are facing today. Whether it be parental influences, interactions with abusive outsiders, school bullying, or something else, mental illnesses are growing at a rampant rate.  When mental illness is not alleviated, it can create C-PTSD (compound or complex PTSD), so it’s critical to reverse it early. What sometimes keeps the underlying factor...

Conclusion: Students who perceive themselves to have mental health diagnoses are unlikely to disclose their mental health status on state medical board licensing applications when asked to do so. Addressing barriers to disclosure of mental health diagnoses is necessary for building a healthier physician workforce. PMID: 32054420 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: In this study, we found that a high level of resilience was associated with a low incidence of suicidal ideation in Korean workers. Based on these results, we suggest the need to develop and implement interventions to improve resilience in the workplace, thereby protecting workers, especially those with a high level of work stress, from suicidal ideation.

I was a third-year medical student when I discovered my calling to become a psychiatrist. To this day, I remember the gentleman who changed the trajectory of my life.  He was a middle-aged individual who presented to the clinic due to difficulties with depression. As I entered the exam room, I remember feeling uneasy by the magnitude of his suffering. I could not see his eyes as he slumped over his chair resting his head in his hands. He spoke very slowly as he mustered the strength to answer my questions. The interview lagged with noticeable pauses in his answers. His answers were brief, but his suffering was pervasi...

Gabapentinoids are also commonly used to treat nerve pain and anxiety disorders. This revelation is exceptionally worrying when you take into account the fact that...

(CNN) — Science shows moderate to vigorous aerobic exercise is good for us — it improves sleep; lowers blood pressure; protects against heart disease, diabetes and cancer; reduces stress; boosts mood; and fights anxiety and depression. It’s especially important in adolescence, where the first signs of depression often begin, studies show. But unless your child is an athlete, it can be tough to wean them away from social media and the ever-present screen to swim laps or go for a blood-pumping jog. A new study has some good news: even light exercise may help protect children against developing depression. T...

Conclusion Learning how to pay attention to our attention (meta-attention) can be transformative. Using principles from cognitive science, we can create a comprehensive approach (attention capital theory in medicine) to reclaim the meaning and joy that has been depleted from our profession. Increasing the difficulty of our work to match our skill level, delegating low-level tasks to help us focus on critical steps in our physician zone, creating rules to eliminate distractions, and noticing both the wonder and suffering around us may be more important than resilience training or wellness modules. Although well-intention...

Natalie always had a smile on her face, even when discussing painful topics. She was a highly successful, hard worker and an involved, loving mother. In addition to her full-time job as an accountant, Natalie volunteered at her children’s school and in her community. Her house was immaculate. Every item had a place, everything was neatly labeled, and every appliance gleamed. So it was quite a shock to her therapist, Margaret Robinson Rutherford, Ph.D, when she found Natalie lying still in her bed with empty vodka and pill bottles by her side. Rutherford was helping Natalie work through her anxiety over juggling so ma...

Postpartum depression (PPD), characterized by poor mood, increasing anxiety, and even suicidal ideation, may occur at any time during the first year after childbirth for some women (Bell&Andersson, 2016). Maternal PPD affects children's physical and psychological development, resulting in them being underweight, stunting during the first year of life, and increased risk of anxiety and depression during their adolescence period (Farias-Antunez, Xavier,&Santos, 2017; Sanger, Iles, Andrew,&Ramchandani, 2015).
