Children with Epilepsy More Likely to Have Psychiatric Problems: Children with epilepsy are more likely than other kids to have  psychiatric problems, researchers say. The risk is greater for boys,  they report. In a population-based study, nearly 38 percent of children  with epilepsy had psychiatric symptoms, compared with 17 percent of  those who did not have the condition. Girls with epilepsy were more than  four times as likely as other girls to have such symptoms, while boys  were only twice as likely, researchers reported online in Epilepsia.

Stigma, Culture Delay Recovery of Latinos from Depression:  The  stigma of mental illness, poor communication with physicians and the  underuse of antidepressants all play a major part in delaying the  recovery of Latinos from depression, a new study finds. Researchers  followed the recovery of 220 Latinos who screened positive for  depression at two clinics in Los Angeles County over 30 months.  Reporting in the General Hospital Psychiatry, they found that nearly 70  percent of participants improved, albeit slowly, following a course of  antidepressants and with the benefit of good physician-patient  communication, but stigma remained an important barrier. Most of the  participants were Spanish-speaking with limited education and employment  who had access to health care insurance. (Health Behavior News Service, 3/22/11)

Although infants and very young children can suffer serious mental  health disorders, they are unlikely to receive treatment that could  prevent lasting developmental problems, according to research published  by the American Psychological Association. Researchers say one barrier  is the mistaken impression that young children do not develop mental  health problems and are immune to the effects of early adversity and  trauma. The analysis, reported in the American Psychologist, recommends  improvements in diagnostic criteria, and outlines public policy  opportunities for psychologists and policy makers.
