Psychiatry Is Still Stuck in Freud ’s Era. Big Data Can Revolutionize How We Care for Patients
I have a problem. I am a psychiatrist in the 21st century and yet I still evaluate patients the way Freud did a century ago: I sit with a patient and, by carefully observing how and what they say, I expect them to tell me what’s wrong. The problem isn’t that I speak with and listen to my patients. Every doctor of every speciality does that. Rather, my problem is that I never measure the data I think are most important to my treatment of psychiatric diseases. Consider how I evaluate a patient for psychosis in the emergency room. When I speak with them, I want to know what their life is like—what’s th...

Methylglyoxal detoxification deficits causes schizophrenia-like behavioral abnormalities
(Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Medical Science) We generated a mouse model for a subgroup of schizophrenia patients by feeding Glo1 knockout mice VB6-deficent diets (KO/VB6(-)). We found that the KO/VB6(-) mice accumulated methylglyoxal (MG) in the brain and showed schizophrenia-like behavioral impairments. Furthermore, we found aberrant gene expression related to mitochondria function in the prefrontal cortex (PFC) of the KO/VB6(-) mice. Finally, we demonstrated abnormal mitochondrial respiratory function and enhanced oxidative stress in the PFC of KO/VB6(-) mice. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

People with severe mental illness have a substantially reduced life expectancy, from 15 –20 years less than those without schizophrenia, bipolar, or major depressive disorders. This grim statistic is, unfortunately, one of the few things that all in the mental health field can agree on—the evidence is too overwhelming to argue otherwise. The primary reasons for this disgraceful dis parity are also well established: our governments and societies are not designed to support people with severe mental illness, leaving them vulnerable to a host of physical health comorbidities associated with unstable housing, unemp...

There is robust evidence that, compared with the general population, individuals with psychoses (such as those with schizophrenia) are more likely to contract COVID-19, have severe symptoms, and die after contracting the infection. Individuals with psychoses already have a shorter life expectancy (approximately 15 years less than the general population) as a consequence of a constellation of interrelated social, economic, and physical health risks, including inequities in employment, income and wealth, housing, and access to health services. These inequities have been further amplified by the pandemic, leaving those with p...
