Anorexia stems from body as well as mind – study - BBC News
The origins of the eating disorder anorexia nervosa are in both the mind and the body, according to an international study.

Anorexia is seen as a serious psychiatric disease.

But doctors at King's College London showed changes hardwired into some people's DNA altered the way they processed fats and sugars and may make it easier to starve their bodies.

The eating disorder charity Beat said the findings were groundbreaking.

The researchers looked at 16,992 people with anorexia and 55,525 people without the disease, from 17 countries.

All their DNA - the blueprint for the human body - was analysed to find mutations in genetic instructions that were more common in anorexia patients.

The study, published in Nature Genetics, found some mutations also presented in other psychiatric disorders such obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, and schizophrenia.

But they also found mutations in the instructions that control the body's metabolism, particularly those involving blood sugar levels and body fat.

"There is something in those systems that has gone awry," Prof Janet Treasure, from the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London, told BBC News.

The researchers - at King's and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill - say anorexia should now be considered a "metabo-psychiatric disorder" as it is a disease of mind and body.

50p minimum price per one unit of alcohol, to come into effect March 2018, after years of legal fight against the alc lobby vested interest. (Sugar Tax, ) - - Minimum pricing has been broadly welcomed by health bodies and alcohol awareness groups, who say it will target the kind of drinking that leads to the greatest harm. //
People from the most deprived areas are nearly eight times more likely to need help, according to the NHS. There were 36,235 alcohol-related hospital admissions last year - the equivalent of more than 100 a day. They involved 24,060 individual patients - up from the 35,376 admissions involving 23,656 patients the previous year.

'Grief and anxiety are not mental illnesses' - BBC News
Psychiatric diagnoses are not only scientifically invalid, they are harmful too. The language of illness implies that the roots of such emotional distress lie in abnormalities in our brain and biology, usually known as "chemical imbalances". This leads us to be blind to the social and psychological causes of distress. More importantly, we tend to prescribe medical solutions - anti-depressants and anti-psychotic medication - despite significant side-effects and poor evidence of their effectiveness. This is wrong. We should not be diagnosing many more people with meaningless "mental illnesses", telling them these stem from brain abnormalities, and prescribing medication.

One-fifth of youngsters suffer from 'high anxiety' - BBC News
The study looked at the wellbeing and mental health of 7.5 million young people in the UK aged 16 to 24. [...] The figures also show a rising proportion of young people who felt dissatisfied with their health. [...] The figures from the ONS show a picture of a growing number of young people who are satisfied with their lives - but with a persistent minority reporting unhappiness or suffering from anxiety. [...] Campus anxiety [...] But in terms of anxiety, 18% report high levels of anxiety and almost 16% have "medium" levels of anxiety. In a separate measure, there are almost 21% of young people with "evidence indicating depression or anxiety". And young people's perceptions of their own physical health seemed to be progressively more negative, with more expressing dissatisfaction and fewer feeling satisfied. [F]igures for the wellbeing of younger children which showed about one in eight youngsters between the ages of 10 and 15 reported symptoms of mental ill-health.

Should we treat mental illness the same as physical illness?
I have grown uneasy with the pressure to validate mental illness by analogy with the physical. In a truly compassionate society this would not be necessary. We risk turning suffering into an identity, a foregone conclusion, a test of whether one really, really deserves to get help. We risk asking those suffering to conform to a fantasy version of their disorder, in which happiness is weakness and recovery a sham. I understand why we do it, but we risk making mentally ill people feel they have something to prove. They don’t.

Digitaler Burnout: "Zu viel Smartphone macht unglücklich" - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ portion USE time! 3x1hr? ] Study: Wir beschäftigen uns bis zu drei Stunden am Tag mit dem Smartphone. Der Leiter der Studie zieht daraus bedenkliche Schlüsse - und fordert eine digitale Diät. [...] Der Experte geht davon aus, dass beim Scrollen über den Handyscreen die gleichen Stoffwechselvorgänge im Gehirn aktiviert werden wie bei Drogensüchtigen. Die ständige Kommunikation mit Freunden oder Arbeitskollegen über soziale Medien wie Facebook scheine dabei das größte Suchtpotenzial auszumachen. "Denn dort erhalten wir Aufmerksamkeit und Anerkennung", so te Wildt. [...] "Das Gehirn ist durch den Überfluss an Informationen und Kommunikation komplett überlastet", sagt Markowetz. Im schlimmsten Fall führt das schließlich zum Burnout, wie ihn Miriam Meckel, Chefredakteurin der "Wirtschaftswoche" oder die "Huffington Post"-Gründerin Arianna Huffington erlebt haben. Die beiden Karrierefrauen machten die Kommunikationsüberlastung mitverantwortlich für ihren Zusammenbruch.

More patients in Scotland given antidepressants - BBC News
814,181 patients in 2014/15. Since 2009/10, use of antidepressants has increased by 28.5%. Two-thirds of the patients given the drugs were women, with use peaking in the 50-54 age group. The figures indicated antidepressant use was associated with deprivation. They recorded 225,969 patients in the poorest parts of Scotland receiving the drugs, compared with 110,507 in the least deprived areas. The total cost of antidepressants to the NHS in Scotland was £40.8m. The use of lower-cost drugs means this figure has fallen by one-third over the past 10 years.

Antidepressiva Paroxetin Imipramin: Kein Nutzen für Jugendliche - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Auch in Deutschland und Europa gab es für die auch hier zugelassenen Mittel zahlreiche Warnungen. Der wissenschaftliche Ausschuss für Humanarzneimittel (CHMP) attestierte Paroxetin in einem Risikobewertungsverfahren ein erhöhtes Risiko für Nebenwirkungen wie Selbstmordversuch, suizidale Gedanken und Feindseligkeit bei Kindern und Jugendlichen. Die entsprechenden Warnhinweise stehen seit vielen Jahren in der Packungsbeilage. Im Jahr 2012 war GlaxoSmithKline in den USA zu einer Strafzahlung von drei Milliarden Dollar verdonnert worden. Der Hersteller hatte Paroxetin unter dem Handelsnamen Paxil, das die amerikanische Arzneimittelbehörde (FDA) nur für Erwachsene zugelassen hatte, gezielt an Jugendliche weitergegeben und Gratisproben unter Psychiatern verteilt.

"shrinks. the untold story of psychiatry." DSM-3 was first empirical/statistical reliable. Freud - psychodynamic therapy, freudian, several times a week for several months. // With more individuals suffering from mental illness and fewer medical students choosing psychiatry as their specialization, the pressing question is: who is going to treat patients in need? At the same time psychiatry has been going through a wholesale revolution of understanding about the nature of mental illness, moving away from the psychoanalytic model to a more strictly scientific view of the mind. How might the profession change in the next 25 years and how will that affect patients?

BBC News - A Point of View: Why do people relate to fictional characters?
But the people people need are not necessarily flesh and blood. People also need people who manifest all their own torturous confusions - about life, love and the pursuit of happiness - but whose own existence is quite immaterial. People need people who can show them just how difficult it is to maintain the illusion that one's the author of one's own life. [...] the delusion that we too are the authors of our own lives. That we are unable to turn to the last page of the book of our lives then read the fate inscribed there does nothing to counter our suspicion it has already been written - after all, the same is the case for Ethel Nairn and millions of other fictional characters, and as I believe I've already demonstrated, it's precisely this shared predicament which makes them so very worthy of our compassion.

BBC News - Violinist Frances Andrade 'failed' by mental health services
At the inquest, Mr Travers ruled out a verdict of suicide but said he could not be sure if Mrs Andrade intended to kill herself. He said her mental health was initially assessed as being a "red" priority, but it was accidently listed as "amber" in records. The lack of urgency surrounding her care was "quite extraordinary", he said, adding: "There was a real failure to provide Fran with the care that some two months before it was recognised that she needed." Mrs Andrade was on anti-depressants and had overdosed twice before her death, once in December 2012 and the other time in January 2013. Mr Travers said Mrs Andrade had told doctors the overdoses had been triggered by anxiety that came from the court case. "Her reason to overdose was not to kill herself but was a way to cope with the court case," he said.

Alter des Vaters ist ein Risikofaktor für psychische Störungen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Aus medizinischer Sicht kann die insgesamt etwas spätere Familiengründung Risiken bergen, das legten schon mehrere Studien nahe. Experten vermuten, dass die Spermien der Männer mit zunehmendem Alter mehr Mutationen im Erbgut enthalten - darunter eben auch schädliche. Jetzt präsentieren Forscher aus Schweden und den USA im Fachjournal "Jama Psychiatry" eine weitere Studie, die zeigt: Das Risiko für verschiedene psychische Störungen, darunter ADHS, Autismus und Psychosen, nimmt mit steigendem Alter des Vaters zu. [...] Gleichwohl waren die Wissenschaftler über die deutlichen Effekte erstaunt. "Wir waren erschüttert von den Ergebnissen", sagt D'Onofrio. "Die Zusammenhänge mit dem Alter des Vaters waren viel, viel größer als in früheren Studien." Auch wenn natürlich viele Kinder älterer Väter überhaupt nicht mit den beschriebenen Problemen zu kämpfen hätten, sei es doch wichtig, über die möglichen Risiken aufzuklären.
