This is an open-label study, in which all participants receives an active treatment with repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) according to clinical protocol. The aim with this pilotstudy is to investigate the feasibility to perform a trial of low-frequency rTMS on treatment-resistant depression in adolescents. The study includes adolescents 13-19 years old, with average to severe depression.
Sleep plays a fundamental role in both mental- and physical-health, with good sleep health including adequate duration and quality, appropriate timing, regularity, and absence of sleep disorders. The purpose of this study is to evaluate sleep in adolescent and if brief behavioral and sleep hygiene education with mindfulness intervention improves, sleep timing, sleep duration, sleep quality, anxiety- and depression symptoms. During adolescence extensive physiological changes happen that make it easier for adolescents to stay up later, that may increase the time it may take them to fall-asleep and developing insomnia symptoms. At the same time psychosocial changes happen, the societal changes in the last decade may even have further amplified late sleep in adolescents, with increase in social media use and evening screen-time. As sleep need is not decreased and with adolescents having to wake up at "socially acceptable times" rather than the endogenous sleep offset time, sleep duration may be shortened causing chronic sleep loss and daytime sleepiness. Insufficient sleep in adolescents may affect their daytime functioning, causing fatigue and memory issues, affect school attendance and academic performance, affect mood, mental- and physical health, cause behavioral dysfunction and has been associated with worse health outcomes, adverse risk behaviors and even increase risk for accidents.This study should advance understanding of sleep in adolescents and if this simple interventions can be effective in improving their sleep and mental health.
Older people in long-term care (LTC) are often less physically active than their community-dwelling peers. Low physical activity level is associated with more symptoms of anxiety and depression as well as with lower physical performance. This weakens coping with daily activities and increases the care costs. Earlier research have found that playing digital games that require physical activity affects positively functioning of older people. Playing can increase physical activity, improve balance and walking speed, lift the mood and create opportunities for social interaction. The effects of digital gaming, especially on objectively measured physical activity and social functioning, are still unclear. The aim of this study is to evaluate effectiveness of digital gaming intervention with Yetitablet to physical, psychological and social functioning and activity of older people in long-term care environment. This study investigates the effectiveness of the Yetitablet in improving the functioning of older people. Yetitablet is an assistive technology device developed for special groups. Yetitablet is a large interactive touchscreen tablet with 55" screen and with Android operating system and it includes numerous applications. Yetitablet has mobile stand on wheels, which allows the screen to be raised and lowered, as well as tilted as needed, all the way to a desk position. Applications can be downloaded to the device from the Google Play Store, and it also has its own game applications, such as darts, table hockey and memory game. These games can be played individually or in group. There is no previous scientific research on the effectiveness of the Yetitablet on the functioning and activity of older people in long-term care settings.
This study is a single-center, cross-sectional, and survey study. Through questionnaire surveys, information about the anxiety and depression status of residents of elderly care institutions in Zhejiang Province is collected. Through multi-factor analysis, the relevant influencing factors that affect their psychological status are clarified. The happy old age society provides reference opinions.
The purpose of the current study is to perform a unified, homogeneous data collection protocol that includes a large cohort of patients undergoing different treatment options for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) as an avenue for investigating optimal biomarkers for depression treatments on an individual patient level.
Depending on the YASAM project which was established to home-visit evaluate community-dwelling older adults (80 years of age and over), we aimed to determine the prevalence (prevalence) of geriatric syndromes (dependence, frailty, malnutrition, depression, dementia, comorbidity burden, polypharmacy) in these individuals and to determine possible changes in the follow-up of the patients during the 2-year follow-up period.

Depression is the most prevalent mental health condition among VHA patients and is strongly associated with poor functioning, negative health outcomes, and suicide. Despite effective and available treatments, engagement in care is poor. This study will analyze VHA electronic medical record data, to identify patient characteristics associated with poor treatment engagement. The study will then develop and formatively evaluate an eHealth intervention to improve and sustain engagement in mental health care through self-monitoring. This is an important step in engaging Veterans who, in part, based on their military training, may have difficulty identifying or accepting depressed affect and the benefits of treatment. The information obtained will inform clinical strategies and operations policy to improve quality, coordination, and efficiency of mental health services.
The goal of this clinical trial is to test the effect of Rehacom on depression and Quality of life in post covid -19 patients. The main question it aims to answer is: • Is a cognitive rehabilitation therapy will improve depression and quality of life in patients with post COVID-19? Researchers will compare Rehacom with exercise therapy to see if rehacom can improve depression and quality of life in patients with post COVID-19 neuropsychological problems.
Background: The COVID-19 pandemic represented a global public health problem that brought considerable consequences to the physical and mental health of the entire population. Objective: To compare the effectiveness of the brief behavioral intervention for insomnia by teleconsultation (BBII-TC) with the brief behavioral intervention for face-to-face insomnia (BBII) on symptoms of insomnia, anxiety, depression, quality of sleep and life in a sample. of patients with long COVID. Methodology: Randomized controlled trial of equivalence with two groups in parallel (1:1) with repeated measures in pretreatment, posttreatment and follow-up at 3 months. The sample will be composed of male or female participants, in an age range of 18 to 40 years. The sample size was calculated, obtaining a total of 52 participants, the expected effect size is .40, with a significance of 0.05 and a probability error of 80%. Participants in the two groups will be assessed with the following instruments: Sleep Diary, Patient Health Questionnaire 9, Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index , Insomnia Severity Index, SF-36 Health Survey and Generalized Anxiety Disorder 7; at the beginning and end of treatment; and in a follow-up at 3 months. TData analysis: The Kolmogrov-Smirnov test will be carried out to determine the normality of the data, in case the distribution is parametric, an ANOVA of repeated measures will be carried out for the comparison of data between the pre, post and monitoring for each of the groups; in the event that the data does not have a normal distribution, the Friedman test will be performed for the comparison of repeated measures. Finally, to avoid bias in the data analysis, an external investigator will be asked to perform the randomization and data processing.
Depression is a serious mental illness, with persistent depression and loss of interest as the main clinical manifestations, and causes varying degrees of cognitive impairment, further leading to impaired social function, and even lead to suicidal behavior. Previous studies on the antidepressant effects of Omega-3 mainly focused on chronic effects, and there was a lack of corresponding rapid response clinical studies. Because of the nature of Omega-3 health products, no clinical adverse effects have been reported. We have previously shown that Omega-3 can produce antidepressant and cognitive improvement effects. This study will carry out different doses (low dose and high dose) and single active ingredient (EPA alone) to observe the antidepressant and cognitive improvement effects of Omega-3 in clinical patients with major depression. The antidepressant effect and cognitive improvement effect of Omega-3 will be further verified to provide evidence for future clinical application.
