Mood or Anxiety disorders not associated to Birth

Parent Interventions

A study done by Julia Jaekel, Asst. prof. of child and family studies at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and Dieter Wolke, professor of psychology at the University of Warwick puts light to the question on whether mood or anxiety disorder is related to the birth.  The study was done with Half of the participants had been born before 32 weeks gestation or at a very low birth weight and the rest had been born at term and normal birth weight. The study selected the participants of 6,8 and 26 years of age.

The study on the participants found that kids of age 6 were not having any anxiety or mood issues, whereas age 8 group kids have joined school and showed a small portion of anxiety issues, and age 26 age group was having a high probability of mood and anxiety issues.

When there is a romantic partner who supports a person he/she has the chances of having a good mental health which helps in preventing anxiety and mental disorders. Even if a person does not have a romantic partner a strong social support will also prevent anxiety and mood disorder.
