Handling Stress Poorly May Increase Long-Term Risk For Anxiety/Mood Disorders.

USA Today (4/4, Hellmich) reports that handling “stress poorly…may put you at greater risk for anxiety disorders and other mental health issues 10 years later,” according to a study published online in the journal Psychological Science. Researchers from the University of California-Irvine “analyzed data on 711 men and women, ages 25 to 74, who were interviewed two times 10 years apart.” Investigators found that “people who responded to stress with more anxiety and sadness than the average person were much more likely to have self-reported anxiety/mood disorders and psychological distress 10 years later.”
