A consensus statement developed by scientists, consumers, and advocates addresses the unmet needs in the diagnosis, treatment, and mental health services to older Americans living with mood disorders. Despite substantial advances in the evidence base for treatment, most older Americans still do not receive adequate treatment for depression, resulting in excess disability and suffering, burden on family members, higher health care costs, and high rates of suicide.
In a national population-based nested case-control study using Danish longitudinal register data, Byrne et al investigated the risk for schizophrenia associated with parental age at birth. Adjusting for family psychiatric history and socioeconomic and demographic factors, risk for schizophrenia was associated with paternal age of 50 years or older. The results lend support to the theory that de novo mutations associated with increased paternal age might be responsible for some cases of schizophrenia.
