INTRODUCTION: In patients with schizophrenia, social and functional outcome is determined by the cognitive impairment. Assessment of visuo-spatial working memory (VSWM) which can simulate the day-to-day activities by simultaneous involvement of various elements of working memory may reflect disorganized thinking and fragmentation of thoughts in schizophrenia. METHODS: Thirty-six patients with schizophrenia, 29 first-degree relatives of patients, and 25 healthy controls performed a VSWM task with three memory loads (comprising three pairs, six pairs, and eight pairs of abstract pictures)...

INTRODUCTION: Assembly-line migrant workers (AMWs), as a major workforce in China, may be at particularly high risk of depression due to their relative low social economic status and particular job characteristics. However, little is known about the frequency and characteristics of depression among Chinese AMWs. This study investigated the prevalence and correlates of depressive symptoms in Chinese AMWs. METHODS: In this cross-sectional survey, 915 Chinese AMWs from two shoe-making factories completed a standardized questionnaire to report their socio-demographics, physical health, migration, and work...

Findings in this study should inform the development of teacher training programs, and more broadly, assist in the success of a strategic plan addressing mental health in classrooms. This study aims to assess mental health literacy among teachers with focus on their knowledge of depression. METHODS: The study was a cross-sectional descriptive survey conducted among teachers in five secondary schools (high school) in southeast Nigeria...

INTRODUCTION: We aimed to investigate the risk factors associated with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children and adolescents using a nationally representative sample of the Korean population. METHODS: Data from children and adolescents aged less than 18 years (n = 23 561) were obtained from the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2005 to 2014.

INTRODUCTION: Data regarding the association between depression and dietary factors in Korean adults are limited. We hypothesized that Korean men and women with depression would have poorer nutritional intakes and different dietary habits than those without depression. METHODS: This study was based on data from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey conducted during 2012 to 2014. Overall, 10 591 subjects (4308 men, 6529 women) aged 19 to 64 years were selected and categorized according to current depression status...

PURPOSE: To examine (1) if the use of benzodiazepines and antidepressants during pregnancy may increase the risk of preterm birth and/or low birth weight (LBW), and, if yes, (2) which types of benzodiazepines or antidepressants have stronger influences. METHODS: A case-control study was performed using a large claims database in Japan. Cases were mothers who had given birth to preterm and/or LBW infants between 2005 and 2014 (737 with preterm births and 1615 with LBW)...

INTRODUCTION: Major natural disasters have a significant impact on the mental health of survivors in affected communities. Although it has been speculated that the number of survivors requiring admission to psychiatric hospital increases immediately after a major disaster, few studies have examined the issue. METHODS: On March 11, 2011, the Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent tsunami devastated the relatively isolated city of Kesennuma. We therefore compared the weekly number of patients admitted to 2 psychiatric hospitals in Kesennuma in the 4 weeks immediately after the earthquake with those in the 4 weeks immediately preceding the earthquake...

INTRODUCTION: Family caregivers of cancer patients experience many negative effects due to the heavy responsibility involved. Although various psychosocial interventions have been found to improve caregivers' quality of life (QOL), the sustainability of the benefits of these interventions over time has been less consistently investigated and hence less clearly established. Extending previous research on the immediate post-intervention effects, this study aims to examine the trajectories of change in caregivers QOL over an 8-week follow-up period...
