    Xingbin Du1,2, Jianda Kong3,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.26, No.5, pp. 345-350, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2024.049764

    Abstract As the global elderly population increases, depression within this group has become a significant public health concern. Although exercise has been recognized for its potential to improve depression in the elderly, the benefits, risks, and implementation strategies remain contentious. This review attempts to examine the impact of exercise on depression in older adults, including potential benefits, risks, and suggestions for application. Our analysis highlights the benefits of aerobic and resistance training, which can significantly alleviate depressive symptoms and enhance overall quality of life. Despite these benefits, the review acknowledges the complexity of the exercise-depression interaction More >

    Abstract Sickle Cell Anemia (SCA) is a prevalent genetic condition in Saudi Arabia, particularly in the Jazan region. The study’s purpose was to assess the prevalence of de-pression among individuals with SCA in this area and to identify the factors associated with this condition. The study involved 391 adult participants, all patients in the hematology center of Prince Mohammed bin Nasser Hospital (PMNH). Data was collected through an anonymous interview questionnaire–the Arabic version of the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9)–between March–May 2022. The questionnaire covered socio-demographic information and variables related to the participant’s SCA history, such as… More >

    Quercetin regulates depression-like behavior in CUMS rat models via TLR4/NF-κB signaling


    BIOCELL, Vol.48, No.5, pp. 731-744, 2024, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2024.048820

    Abstract Background: Depression is becoming increasingly prevalent around the world, imposing a substantial burden on individuals, families, as well as society. Quercetin is known to be highly effective in treating depression. However, additional research is needed to dissect the mechanisms of its anti-depressive effects. Methods: For this study, Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were randomized into the control, model, quercetin, or fluoxetine group. The latter three groups were exposed to chronic unpredictable mild stress (CUMS) for 42 d. The first two groups received saline solution daily via oral gavage. Meanwhile, the quercetin group was orally administered a quercetin suspension… More >

    Factor Structure and Longitudinal Invariance of the CES-D across Diverse Residential Backgrounds in Chinese Adolescents

    Yanjing Cao1, Chenchen Xu1,2, Qi Li1, Shan Lu1,2,*, Jing Xiao1,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.26, No.4, pp. 261-269, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2024.043729

    Abstract Background: Valid and reliable measures of depressive symptoms are crucial for understanding risk factors, outcomes, and interventions across rural and urban settings. Despite this need, the longitudinal invariance of these measures over time remains understudied. This research explores the structural components of the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D) and examines its consistency across various living environments and temporal stability in a cohort of Chinese teenagers. Method: In the initial phase, 1,042 adolescents furnished demographic details and undertook the CES-D assessment. After a three-month interval, 967 of these participants repeated the CES-D evaluation. The… More >

    The Influence of Internet Use on Women’s Depression and Its Countermeasures—Empirical Analysis Based on Data from CFPS

    Dengke Xu1, Linlin Shen1, Fangzhong Xu2,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.26, No.3, pp. 229-238, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2024.046023

    Abstract Based on China Family Panel Studies (CFPS) 2018 data, the multiple linear regression model is used to analyze the effects of Internet use on women’s depression, and to test the robustness of the regression results. At the same time, the effects of Internet use on mental health of women with different residence, age, marital status and physical health status are analyzed. Then, we can obtain that Internet use has a significant promoting effect on women’s mental health, while the degree of Internet use has a significant inhibitory effect on women’s mental health. In addition, the… More >

    Relationships among Sedentary Time, Electronic Product Addiction, and Depression in Adolescents during the COVID-19 Epidemic: A Cross-Lagged Study

    Feng Sheng1,*, Chen Kong2, Chao Li3

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.26, No.3, pp. 221-228, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2024.030209

    Abstract Objective: This study was conducted to explore the relationships among sedentary behavior (SB), electronic product addiction (EPA), and depression (D) in adolescents during the COVID-19 epidemic. Methods: A total of 604 adolescents (including 309 girls and 295 boys aged 12–18) were selected from Qufu City, Shandong Province, China for three rounds of investigation. The model was constructed using AMOS 23.0 software, and cross-lagged analysis was conducted. Results: SB at T1 can significantly positively predict SB and EPA at T2 (p < 0.05). EPA at T1 can significantly positively predict SB and D at T2 (p < 0.05). More >

    Depression Intensity Classification from Tweets Using FastText Based Weighted Soft Voting Ensemble

    Muhammad Rizwan1,2, Muhammad Faheem Mushtaq1, Maryam Rafiq2, Arif Mehmood3, Isabel de la Torre Diez4, Monica Gracia Villar5,6,7, Helena Garay5,8,9, Imran Ashraf10,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.2, pp. 2047-2066, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.037347

    Abstract Predicting depression intensity from microblogs and social media posts has numerous benefits and applications, including predicting early psychological disorders and stress in individuals or the general public. A major challenge in predicting depression using social media posts is that the existing studies do not focus on predicting the intensity of depression in social media texts but rather only perform the binary classification of depression and moreover noisy data makes it difficult to predict the true depression in the social media text. This study intends to begin by collecting relevant Tweets and generating a corpus of… More >

    Associations of Domain and Pattern of Sedentary Behaviors with Symptoms of Mental Disorders in Saudi Adults: ‘The Sedentary Behavior Paradox’

    Abdullah B. Alansare*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.26, No.1, pp. 11-20, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.044656

    Abstract Emerging evidence suggests the existence of ‘paradoxical’ relationships between domain-specific sedentary behavior (SB) and health outcomes. This study assessed the associations of total and domain-specific SB, by pattern, with symptoms of mental disorders in Saudi adults. Participants (n = 554) completed a web-based survey between January 18th, 2023 and February 5th, 2023. Total SB was measured by using the Sedentary Behavior Questionnaire. Total SB was then partitioned into leisure, occupational, and commuting SB during weekdays and on weekend days. Symptoms of mental disorders including symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress were evaluated by using the… More >
