Meditating twice a day for 20 mins cut PTSD symptoms in older adults 14.1.2018 General News
Just 20 minutes of meditation twice a day may reduce symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in older adults, suggests a recent study.According to researchers from Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, veterans of the war in Vietnam, the Gulf War, Somalia, Iraq and Afghanistan suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) found significant relief from their symptoms as a result of practising the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique.Transcendental Meditation is a technique for detaching oneself from anxiety and promoting harmony and self-realization by meditation, repetition of a mantra and other yogic practices."It's remarkable that after just one month we would see such a pronounced decrease in symptoms, with four out of five veterans no longer considered to have a serious problem with PTSD," said lead author Robert Herron."Transcendental Meditation is very easy to do and results come quickly," said another researcher James Grant.The research has

These early symptoms can predict bipolar disorder 14.1.2018 General News
A study has recently found that early anxiety and disorders of attention or behaviour are two patterns of psychiatric symptoms that may help to identify young people at increased risk of developing bipolar disorder (BD).According to researchers, early signs of BD can fall into a relatively characteristic "homotypic" pattern, consisting mainly of symptoms or other features associated with mood disorders; or a "heterotypic" pattern of other symptoms including anxiety and disruptive behaviour.Environmental risk factors and exposures can also contribute to BD risk.The team analysed data from 39 studies of prodromal symptoms and risk factors for later development of BD.BD is commonly preceded by early depression or other symptoms of mental illness, sometimes years before BD develops, as indicated by onset of mania or hypomania.The authors noted, "The prodromal phase of BD remains incompletely characterized, limiting early detection of BD and delaying interventions that might limit future ..

Court dismisses octogenarian's plea for treatment of son 14.1.2018 General News
A court here has dismissed the plea of an octogenarian man to direct Delhi Police to take his 39-year-old son to a government hospital for treatment of his mental illness. Metropolitan Magistrate Anjani Mahajan rejected the application of Prabhu Dayal, seeking assistance of the police to admit his son to the psychiatric ward of Delhi government's Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences (IHBAS). In his plea, filed through advocate Gaurav Kumar Bansal, Dayal said his son was mentally disturbed and his health was worsening day by day. The court rejected the plea as there were no medical certificates to prove the case, Bansal said, claiming that the son had destroyed the reports after suffering a mental attack. "There is a probability that if not given proper treatment and medical facilities, my son may harm himself or any other person in the family," the applicant said. He said that his son was under medication from 2011 to 2013 and his health was ...

Hormone therapy helps treat eating disorders in transgenders 13.1.2018 General News
Hormone therapy may help reduce the feelings of body dissatisfaction associated with eating disorders including anorexia and bulimia in transgenders, a study has found. Eating disorders including anorexia, bingeing, self- induced vomiting and the misuse of diet pills and laxatives have been linked to people's deep-seated unhappiness with their body, fuelled by Western society's obsession with an idealised image of beauty. For some transgender people, striving to achieve a masculine or feminine body shape can influence their eating behaviours. While in the case of transgender males (assigned female at birth but who identify as male) who are not on hormone treatment some may even restrict what they eat as a way of stopping menstruation. "Young transgender people may restrict their food as a way to control their puberty, stop their period or reduce the development of breasts," said Jon Arcelus, from the University of Nottingham in the UK. "Eating disorder professionals ...

Finding links between childhood abuse and depression in later life 10.1.2018 General News
A recent study provides insights on links between childhood abuse and depression in later life.The research suggests that smaller social networks and feelings of loneliness might be important risk factors for late-life depression in older adults with a history of childhood abuse as well as with an earlier onset of depression.The findings highlight the importance of detecting the presence of childhood abuse in adults with depression and possibly to integrate this into treatment."Apart from the presence of childhood abuse, also the age at depression onset is important to consider in older adults and might give some clues as to which factors are important in treatment," said Ilse Wielaard, of the VU University Medical Centre, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.The study has been published in the journal International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.

Exposure to trees, the sky and birdsong in cities is beneficial for the mental wellbeing of people, a study suggests.Researchers at King's College London found that (i) being outdoors, seeing trees, hearing birdsong, seeing the sky, and feeling in contact with nature were associated with higher levels of mental wellbeing, and that (ii) the beneficial effects of nature were especially evident in those individuals with greater levels of impulsivity who are at greater risk of mental health issues.The researchers developed a smartphone-based app to examine how exposure to natural features in cities affects a person's mental wellbeing.The app monitored 108 individuals who collectively completed 3,013 assessments over a one-week period.In each assessment, participants answered several questions about their current environment and momentary mental wellbeing.

Singing may help tackle post-natal depression: study 9.1.2018 General News
Mothers who sing in groups with their babies may overcome the symptoms of post-natal depression more quickly, a study suggests. Researchers worked with 134 mothers to see if singing could help them reduce the symptoms of post-natal depression for 40 weeks after they gave birth. Singing workshops saw the mothers learning lullabies and songs from around the world with their babies and creating new songs together about motherhood. Those with moderate to severe symptoms of post-natal depression reported a much faster improvement than mothers in the usual care and play groups. In the first six weeks, the singing group had already reported an average 35 per cent decrease in depressive symptoms, 'BBC News' reported. "These results are really exciting as they suggest that something as simple as referring mothers to community activities could support their recovery," said Daisy Fancourt, from University College London in the UK.
