People with a medical illness or condition are more likely to suffer from depression. The reverse is also true. However, don't dismiss depression as a normal part of having a chronic illness. People with depression have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke, and Alzheimer’s disease, for example. Learn more in our new brochure: http://1.usa.gov/1XlMeUT

NIMH scientists led the International Consortium on Lithium Genetics, which discovered genes that are associated with responsiveness to the mood-stabilizing medication lithium among patients with bipolar disorder. While the finding won’t have an immediate clinical application, it is a groundbreaking demonstration of the potential for identifying genetic information that can be used to inform personalized treatment decisions.

Researchers find that a team-based treatment for first episode ‪‎psychosis‬ is a better value than typical community care. The treatment method is called Coordinated Specialty Care. While coordinated specialty care costs more than typical care, it produces better clinical and quality of life outcomes, making it more cost-effective. Learn more: http://1.usa.gov/1QEBFth

NIH-funded scientists have cracked the mystery of the strongest known genetic risk for ‪#‎schizophrenia‬. “This study marks a crucial turning point in the fight against mental illness. It changes the game,” said acting NIMH Director Dr. Bruce Cuthbert. “Thanks to this genetic breakthrough, we can finally see the potential for clinical tests, early detection, new treatments and even prevention.” Read more: http://1.usa.gov/1UrbEyv

NIH-funded scientists were surprised to find that a compound developed to protect the nervous system from HIV increased the effectiveness of an investigational antiretroviral drug beyond anything expected. The potency of the combination treatment, tested so far in mice, suggests that it would be possible to rid the body of HIV for months, reducing the frequency with which patients must take these medications from daily to several times a year: http://1.usa.gov/1Pi3aM2
