New APEAL research on comorbid mental disorders and mortality


APEAL lab members Mila Kingsbury, Ewa Sucha, Hugues Sampasa-Kanyinga, and Ian Colman, in collaboration with Jane Murphy, Director of the Stirling County Study, and Stephen Gilman, Director of the Health Behaviour Branch at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, have published a new paper in Epidemiology and Psychiatric Sciences.

The paper uses data from the long-running Stirling County Study, established in 1952 and considered a landmark study in community based psychiatric research. The study found that experiencing more than one common mental disorder over the lifetime is extremely common, and is associated with increased risk of mortality, especially among men
