Depression is a big problem in women during and after pregnancy, but it's also a concern throughout the reproductive years. Now, new research reports that nearly 5 percent of women between the ages of 20 and 44 have struggled with major depression. And another 4 percent of women in that age group have experienced minor depression. But neither group is getting adequate care for the condition.
A special form of brain imaging can identify whether depressed people will improve, according to a new study. Using single photon emission computed tomography, called SPECT, researchers at Amen Clinics were able to categorize patients by measuring blood flow and activity patterns in their brains, according to research published March 20 in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.
Depression can raise your risk of developing an irregular heart rhythm that's been linked to stroke and heart failure, a new study suggests. A person's risk of atrial fibrillation increased by about a third if they either reported symptoms of depression or had been prescribed antidepressants, the investigators found.
Could there be a correlation between high altitudes and mental health problems? New research published in the journal Harvard Review of Psychiatry suggests that when a person's residence is located in high-altitude areas, they may face an increased risk of suicide and major depressive disorder.

Could it be time for younger girls to cut back on their use of social media? Perhaps, suggests a new study that reports that pre-teen and young teen girls who spend too much time on Facebook, Instagram and other social media might wind up feeling worse about themselves. The findings were published March 19 in the journal BMC Public Health.
Adolescents with preexisting mental health conditions and treatments are substantially more likely than adolescents without such conditions to transition from opioid initiation to long-term opioid therapy according to the results of a study published in JAMA Pediatrics. In 2015, more than a quarter of a million adolescents were current users of nonmedical prescribed opioids and more than 33,000 Americans died of an opioid overdose.
Implementing mental health services early on in pediatric oncology patients has significant benefits, as managing such distress before symptom severity worsens creates better short- and long-term outcomes, according to research presented at the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners' 39th National Conference on Pediatric Health Care.
People with obsessive-compulsive disorder tend to fall back on maladaptive coping strategies such as rumination and thought suppression, according to new research; this even though adaptive coping skills such as acceptance and problem-solving could improve their quality of life. Unfortunately, many OCD patients tend to lack those adaptive coping skills while in the throes of the disorder, according to a new German study.

Stopping exercise can result in increased depressive symptoms, according to new mental health research from the University of Adelaide. PhD student Julie Morgan from the University of Adelaide has reviewed the results of earlier studies that examined the effects of stopping exercise in regularly active adults. The results of her review are now published online in the Journal of Affective Disorders.
New research finds that a particular type of antidepressant medication is more effective for treatment of anxiety among children and teens. Currently, two primary classes of antidepressants are prescribed for childhood and adolescent anxiety: selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and selective serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs).
Standardized postpartum depression screening and use of a referral algorithm can be effective in the ambulatory pediatric setting, according to research presented at the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners' 39th National Conference on Pediatric Health Care.
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) delivery systems differ from one another in design, action and results. One of them has recently been shown to be significantly better than sham treatment for bipolar depression. But don't go buy it yet. This approach may help in the short run, but its value as a maintenance treatment has yet to be established.
Many studies have shown ketamine to be a promising treatment for those suffering from severe depression, but figuring out how to safely administer the drug has been a challenge for researchers. One hopeful delivery method was a nasal spray device because of its ease-of-use and the fact that it is less invasive than other methods such as injection.
Do you find that food deeply affects your mood? Science is beginning to back up such gut feelings. The link between poor diet and mood disorders has been long known, but what has been less clear is the direction of causality. When we're depressed, we tend to reach for lower-quality comfort foods, but can more comfort foods contribute to depression? And if we're depressed, can improving our diets improve our symptoms?
