Effect of supervised group exercise on psychological well ‐being among pregnant women with or at high risk of depression (the EWE Study): A randomized controlled trial

ConclusionsSupervised group exercise did not improve psychological well ‐being for women with or at high risk of depression at 29‐34 weeks of gestation. Eight weeks postpartum the intervention group reported significantly higher psychological well‐being than the control group. Based on our results, supervised exercise in groups is a safe complementary course of t reatment alongside the existing antenatal care.

CONCLUSION: Disability to modulate GABA-A-r expression during pregnancy and restore its previous state after parturition appears to trigger PPD. The GABAergic system is a promising pharmacotherapy target. From preclinical to clinical studies for about twenty years the GABAergic system has been incriminated and targeted in this challenging mental disease.

ConclusionThe research project aims to directly improve identification and support of vulnerable children across selected regions in Austria, and by doing so, improve the health and well-being of future Austrian generations while breaking the cycle of intergenerational transfer of adverse childhood experiences. The described project underwent a rigorous public review process (https://ois.lbg.ac.at/en/methods-projects/crowdsourcing-research-questions-in-science) with different stakeholders as well as people with lived experience and scientific experts of the field having reviewed our proposal (https://ois.lbg.ac.at/en/metho...

Conclusions: Sleep patterns in children and adolescents were related to the psychiatric diagnosis of their parent(s). Future follow-up of these results may clarify the relations between early sleep differences and the risk of developing mood disorders in individuals at high familial risk.IntroductionSleep disturbances are core symptoms of mood disorders including major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder (1). Additionally, sleep problems have been associated with more severe symptoms, greater functional impairment, and increased risk for relapse among individuals with mood disorders (2). Over 40% of children and youth...

Conclusions: The observed associations between BPA, MnBP, and behavior in boys are consistent with previous findings. Further health impact assessment studies based on dose–response functions corrected for exposure misclassification are required to quantify the public health burden possibly entailed by such associations. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1314 Received: 02 November 2016 Revised: 23 May 2017 Accepted: 19 June 2017 Published: 15 September 2017 Address correspondence to C.

By Susan Blumenthal, M.D. and Alexandrea Adams The recent commemoration of National Women’s Health Week provided an important time to mark the progress that has been made in advancing women’s health over the past two decades and to highlight what more needs to be done to achieve women’s health equity in America. Historically, women have experienced discrimination in health care despite making 80 percent of health care decisions for their families, using more medical services than men, and suffering greater disability from chronic disease. Before the mid 1990’s, women were often excluded as subjects ...

GENEVA (Reuters) - More than 4 percent of the world’s population lives with depression, and women, youth and the elderly are the most prone to its disabling effects, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Thursday. An estimated 322 million people suffered depressive disorders in 2015, a rise of 18.4 percent in a decade, as people live longer, the United Nations agency said in a report. Global economic losses exceed $1 trillion a year, it said, referring to lost productivity due to apathy or lack of energy that lead to an inability to function at work or cope with daily life. “Depression is the single large...
