Meditation programs for psychological stress and well-being: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
Clinicians should be aware that meditation programs can result in small to moderate reductions of multiple negative dimensions of psychological stress. Thus, clinicians should be prepared to talk with their patients about the role that a meditation program could have in addressing psychological stress. Stronger study designs are needed to determine the effects of meditation programs in improving the positive dimensions of mental health and stress-related behavior.

In a stressful, anxious and lonely period. How to cope with it?
Many things have happened in just 7 days. I broke up with my boyfriend, it was a toxic relationship lasted a year. Even tho it was all toxic I miss him, to distract myself I should hang out with people, but honestly.. I'm not good with people. I don't have lots of friends, and they are not even good.. My third year in high school is ending and it's really stressful with last tests. I have 3 more weeks to go but it feels like eternity. I decided that I will study more to get a 3.0 GPA so that I can access to college. But to attend college in America.. I will go there and live by my own. So all these thoughts are making me exhausted. I feel like I want to isolate myself more than I already am. Like, as soon as I finish my school day, I'll head home and try to relax. I don't want to see anyone and talk to anyone. My mother said that it's been too much time since I actually made a real smile, not a fake one. It's just that I have priorities (like college) and I can't seem to mantain friendships because I'm so emotionally beaten down and stressed. I see everyone like an enemy now: I started to dislike everyone for their shitty behavior. Everyone is just so annoying and kinda mean these days. It's also me whom is messed up with emotions and ugh.. how do I just cope with all these emotions and all this stuff?

The Psychosocial Outcomes in Caregivers of Children With Food Allergy
All genders
The purpose of this study is to evaluate use of a mobile application (also commonly referred to as an app) designed to support caregivers of children with newly diagnosed food allergy. This study has 2 phases. In Phase 1, the researchers obtained feedback regarding use of mobile apps from caregivers who have been managing their child's food allergy for one year or more. The researchers then used this feedback to build a mobile app for caregivers of children with newly diagnosed food allergy. In Phase 2, the researchers will evaluate the mobile app during a 4-week evaluation period with a group of caregivers of children newly diagnosed with food allergy. The data obtained from this study will hopefully benefit caregivers of children with newly diagnosed food allergy.

Burnout among U.S. medical students, residents, and early career physicians relative to the general U.S. population.
Training appears to be the peak time for distress among physicians, but differences in the prevalence of burnout, depressive symptoms, and recent suicidal ideation are relatively small. At each stage, burnout is more prevalent among physicians than among their peers in the U.S. population.

Change in mental health after smoking cessation: systematic review and meta-analysis.
Smoking cessation is associated with reduced depression, anxiety, and stress and improved positive mood and quality of life compared with continuing to smoke. The effect size seems as large for those with psychiatric disorders as those without. The effect sizes are equal or larger than those of antidepressant treatment for mood and anxiety disorders.

Effectiveness of Simulation With Nursing Students in the Care of Patients With Sepsis
All genders
Simulation is an active teaching strategy capable of reproducing real situations and allowing practical experiences, in which the student is the protagonist of his own knowledge. Scientific evidence highlights, that exposure to the unknown or new can generate stress to the individual, but when dosed, to a certain extent it can increase the level of knowledge. Not infrequently, the lack of stress control can trigger physiological and subjective changes resulting from the increase in its level, such as situations that include the implementation of simulation scenarios in pedagogical teaching models.

Behavioral problems after early life stress: contributions of the hippocampus and amygdala.
This study suggests ELS may shape the development of brain areas involved with emotion processing and regulation in similar ways. Differences in the amygdala and hippocampus may be a shared diathesis for later negative outcomes related to ELS.

Chemotherapy Use, Performance Status, and Quality of Life at the End of Life.
Although palliative chemotherapy is used to improve QOL for patients with end-stage cancer, its use did not improve QOD for patients with moderate or poor performance status and worsened QOD for patients with good performance status. The QOD in patients with end-stage cancer is not improved, and can be harmed, by chemotherapy use near death, even in patients with good performance status.

Effect of citalopram on agitation in Alzheimer disease: the CitAD randomized clinical trial.
Among patients with probable Alzheimer disease and agitation who were receiving psychosocial intervention, the addition of citalopram compared with placebo significantly reduced agitation and caregiver distress; however, cognitive and cardiac adverse effects of citalopram may limit its practical application at the dosage of 30 mg per day.

Psychological Impact of COVID-19 Outbreak on Caregivers
51 Locations
All genders
Based on the experience of previous pandemics, countries reacted by applying different upgrade strategies to prevent or delay the widespread of the disease. Therefore, measures such as border closure, school closure, restrict social gathering (even shutdown of workplaces), limit population movements, and confinement meaning quarantines at the scale of cities or regions. In public hospitals, several measures have been decided to concentrate the power of care on potential wave of admissions of patients with severe forms of Covid-19. In this purpose, the number of available beds in Intensive Care Units (ICU) has been increased by two-fold and scheduled non-emergency surgical procedure have been cancelled. That means: 1. For the most severe patients, new personals (physician such as anesthesiologists, nurses of other units) have been transferred in ICUs. 2. For the less severe patients, personals of non-busy units have been transferred in busier ones. All these measures lead to major daily-life change sets that could be stressful. In the general population, it has been well documented that quarantine or confinement or isolation could lead to the occurrence of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) syndrome in about 30% overall population. Importantly, high depressive symptoms have been reported in 9% of hospital staff. Numerous symptoms have been reported after quarantine or isolation such as emotional disturbance, depression, stress, low mood, irritability, insomnia, and post-traumatic stress symptoms. In hospital setting, few studies have been performed for assessing the psychological impact of quarantine and isolation. However, two studies reported a high prevalence of burn-out syndrome (BOS) in ICU physician and PTSD syndrome and depression in ICU nurses. As the consequences of all the measures decided and applied during Covid-19 pandemic could be important on caregivers, the present study primarily aims at assessing the prevalence of PTSD syndrome in a large population of caregivers implied or not in Intensive Care Units. The secondary objective were 1) to assess the prevalence of severe depression and anxiety and BOS 2) to isolate potential factors associated with PTSD, severe depression, anxiety or BOS.

Lifetime stress accelerates epigenetic aging in an urban, African American cohort: relevance of glucocorticoid signaling.
Cumulative lifetime stress may accelerate epigenetic aging, an effect that could be driven by glucocorticoid-induced epigenetic changes. These findings contribute to our understanding of mechanisms linking chronic stress with accelerated aging and heightened disease risk.
