FRIDAY, Nov. 2, 2018 -- Children face an increased risk for sleep problems if a parent suffers a serious injury, especially if the parent has a brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a new study reveals.
Researchers used U.S. Military Health System records to identify more than 485,000 children of more than 272,000 parents who were seriously injured in combat or daily life.
FRIDAY, Sept. 28, 2018 -- For middle school students, witnessing school violence can be as bad as being bullied, new research suggests.
An international team of researchers found that young witnesses face many of the same challenges later on as those who are direct victims of campus violence. Notably, eighth-grade witnesses are at higher risk for social and academic problems by the time they're high school sophomores.
MONDAY, Sept. 10, 2018 -- College can be so stressful that many students think about killing themselves, and some even try, a new study suggests.
Among more than 67,000 students surveyed, over 20 percent said they experienced stressful events in the last year that were strongly associated with mental health problems, including harming themselves and suicidal thoughts or attempts, researchers found.
