Kids With Autism Are More Likely To Have Gastrointestinal Problems
By: Rachael Rettner Published: 03/30/2015 02:00 PM EDT on LiveScience Children with autism may be more likely to have gastrointestinal problems early in life, compared with children who don't have the condition, a new study suggests. Researchers analyzed information from children in Norway whose mothers had answered questions about their child's health during infancy and early childhood. The study included 195 children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD); 4,636 children who had other types of developmental delays; and more than 40,000 children with typical development (who did not have autism). Many of the children with...

Don't Give Up On the Difficult Patient
Forty years ago, I had my most angry professional moment. It happened at a weekly meeting that included all our faculty, staff, and trainees- about two hundred people. A young and arrogant, not very bright, third year psychiatry resident rose to complain bitterly about the 'crappy patients' he and his fellow other residents were being assigned for psychotherapy. Feeling surprisingly furious at his insulting tone, I replied: "Never once in my life have I ever met a 'crappy' patient, but certainly I have come across some crappy doctors who didn't appreciate them." Most therapists prefer 'easy' patients who don't make waves...

The Cross of Mental Illness
The life-size wooden cross in middle of the sanctuary at Broadway United Methodist Church in Indianapolis is draped in purple and beneath it sits a bucket of nails. For the 40 days of Lent the cross represents both a reminder of God's activity in the world and an invitation to realign our lives if we have gone astray. In the week leading to Easter, a time where the life, death on a cross (a tool of state execution), and resurrection of Jesus will be remembered, millions of Christians will gather together to celebrate that nothing can separate us from the love of God, not even death. Central to the theological theatrics o...

No, 'Suicidal Tendencies' Are Not an Indication of Violence
As the world still works to make sense of last week's horrific Germanwings tragedy, reports are continuing to surface about co-pilot Andreas Lubitz's mental state. Prosecutors claim Lubitz may have been suffering from a mental health disorder, and now new information alleges that he also displayed suicidal tendencies in the past. It's human nature to rationalize tragedies and other traumas that we can't fully comprehend, but let us be here to offer one gentle reminder as we continue the discussion: Suicidal is not synonymous with homicidal. It's a huge misgiving to solely place blame on "suicidal tendencies" during horre...

Psychiatric Experts Weigh In On What Could Have Motivated Germanwings Co-Pilot
LONDON (AP) — A disgruntled worker shoots up a workplace. A student opens fire at a high school. A pilot crashes a planeload of people into a mountainside. There may never be a convincing explanation for such devastating acts of violence, but experts say certain personality disorders such as extreme narcissism can help push people who want to take their own lives to take those of others at the same time. But as German prosecutors search for what might have motivated co-pilot Andreas Lubitz to deliberately smash the Germanwings plane carrying 149 other people into the French Alps, many experts caution against speculatin...

(Oregon State University) A new analysis reported in JAMA Psychiatry raises serious questions about the increasingly common use of second-generation antidepressant drugs to treat anxiety disorders. It concludes that studies supporting the value of these medications for that purpose have been distorted by publication bias, outcome reporting bias and 'spin.'

OCD and Distraction
I’ve previously written about my son’s stay at a world-renowned residential treatment program for obsessive-compulsive disorder. After being there for nine weeks, we felt it was time for Dan to come home and prepare to go back to college. He was reluctant to leave the program as well as the staff with whom he’d grown so close, and they encouraged him to stay. Dan kept saying to us, “If I go back to school, I won’t have time to concentrate on my OCD!” Even back then, this rationale made no sense to me. No time to concentrate on your OCD? Wouldn’t that be a good thing? While he was m...

The Way We Talk About Mental Illness After Tragedies Like Germanwings Needs To Change
Media reports erupted today with news that Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz may have been suffering from depression or another mental illness when he crashed the aircraft in the French Alps, most likely killing 150 people, including himself. While headlines like U.K. tabloid The Sun's "Madman In Cockpit" are hardly surprising, such sensational links between mental illness and horrific tragedies can have an undesired outcome when it comes to stigma. Here are five ways to have a more productive conversation about the complex interplay between mental health, violence and tragedies such as this one. 1. Depression doesn...

My name is Nicole and I am a 37-year-old mother, blogger, mental health awareness advocate, and caregiver who also happens to live with bipolar disorder. I am very happy to report that I have been healthy and well for the past three years, with few cycles into mania and depression. Those cycles that have occurred can be traced to certain medications, SAD, historical time of year for me, and even a lightbox.
