Associations between interpersonal violence, psychological distress, and suicidal ideation among formerly incarcerated men and women - Newman M, Fedina L, Nam B, DeVylder J, Alleyne-Green B.

Survivors of interpersonal violence are at increased risk of negative mental health outcomes; however, scant research has explored the relationship between violence exposure and mental health symptoms among formerly incarcerated individuals. This cross-sec...

(Natural News) Antidepressants are easily one of the most commonly prescribed pharmaceuticals available on the market today — even though they are known to cause a litany of harmful side effects, ranging from increasing the risk of diabetes to suicide. Newly published research has discovered a suicide biomarker in the brains of people with PTSD....

Could the advancement of machine and deep learning algorithms be harnessed meaningfully in the area of mental health? Could depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or any other mental disorder be quantified so that technology could somehow add positively to their diagnostics or treatment? We tried to explore the uses of artificial intelligence in mental health care, and stumbled upon smart algorithms that support clinicians with early detection and diagnostics of mental health issues, with the flagging of suicide risks, and other ones that help patients manage their condition through counselling and constantly being t...

Recent evidence implicates dysregulation of metabotropic glutamatergic receptor 5 (mGluR5) in pathophysiology of PTSD and suicidality. Using positron emission tomography and [18F]FPEB, we quantified mGluR5 availability in vivo in individuals with PTSD (n = 29) and MDD (n = 29) as a function of suicidal ideation (SI) to compare with...

Conclusions: Higher mGluR5 availability as a function of current SI was observed in the PTSD group only, implicating mGluR5 dysregulation as a possible state marker of SI specific to individuals with PTSD. Further, it appears individuals with PTSD may have higher mGluR5 availability as compared to the MDD group. These preliminary findings point to mGluR5 as a potential treatment target for PTSD, and to reduce SI in PTSD specifically.

MONDAY, May 13, 2019 -- Imagine if brain scans could show whether someone with PTSD is on the verge of suicide. Sound too far-fetched to be true? Now, a small, new study suggests it's possible simply by tracking the way a common brain chemical is...

NET formation is characterized by marked morphological cell changes, in particular within the nucleus. Lytic NET formation can ...

ConclusionSpirituality underlies many of the experiences of MI, including changes in identity, meaning making, social supports, and MI symptoms. The findings of this mini-review highlight the need to consider a person’s spiritual fitness and health throughout military service and during treatment of MI and examine how spirituality can be fostered to help build resilience and reduce the risk of MI (17). While acknowledging the limited quality of evidence, encouraging military members and veterans to draw on S/R resources and practices may be a salve to psychospiritual distress. Integration of spirituality as a bona fi...

In this study, a link between mitochondrial changes and infant temperament has also been suggested. Maternal psychosocial stress and lifetime trauma have been associated with decreased mitochondrial DNA copy number in the placenta (115, 116).IndividualityChronic stress links changes in the epigenetic landscape with health conditions (117). Different cell types are characterized by distinct patterns of gene expression due to developmental, environmental, physiological, and pathological reasons (117). Epigenetic mechanisms affect gene function in a dynamic way as a result of different environmental exposures during fetal dev...
