Background Anxiety disorders frequently recur in clinical populations, but the risk of recurrence of anxiety disorders is largely unknown in the general population. In this study, recurrence of anxiety and its predictors were studied in a large cohort of the adult general population. Methods Baseline, 3-year and 6-year follow-up data were derived...
Article
Full-text available
Aims Although attenuated psychotic symptoms in the psychosis clinical high-risk state (CHR-P) almost always occur in the context of a non-psychotic disorder (NPD), NPD is considered an undesired ‘comorbidity’ epiphenomenon rather than an integral part of CHR-P itself. Prospective work, however, indicates that much more of the clinical psychosis inc...
Article
Full-text available
Background Increasing age as well as borderline personality pathology are associated with a lower level of health-related quality of life (HR-QoL). Our objective was to investigate whether the presence of borderline personality traits modifies the association between age and HR-QoL in the general population. Methods Cross-sectional data from 5,303...

This study provides insights into the course of anxiety disorders in the general population taking into account transition to residual symptoms and to other diagnostic categories. Methods: Using data from three waves of the Netherlands Mental Health Surve...
Article
Predicting the onset and persistence of psychopathology and limited functioning might enable personalized care. Specific phobia (SP) might serve as a predictor, but this needs further evaluation. Participants of the Netherlands Mental Health Survey and Incidence Study-2 were divided into three groups: no-SP (n = 6094), history of SP (n = 204), and...
Article
There is consistent evidence from cross-sectional studies that smoking is positively associated with mental disorders. The research on the prospective association, however, is inconsistent. In the present study, we aimed to further increase the knowledge of this association by addressing several issues in the body of research. Data used were from a...
Article
Full-text available
Hypotheses about the link between cannabis use and psychosis apply to the within-person level but have been tested mostly at the between-person level. We used a within-person design, in which a person serves as his own control, thus removing the need to consider confounding by any fixed (genetic and nongenetic) characteristic to study the prospecti...

Article
Full-text available
Background Both attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and insomnia have been independently related to poorer quality of life (QoL), productivity loss, and increased health care use, although most previous studies did not take the many possible comorbidities into account. Moreover, ADHD and insomnia often co-occur. Symptoms of ADHD and ins...
Article
Full-text available
The validity and clinical utility of the concept of “clinical high risk” (CHR) for psychosis have so far been investigated only in risk‐enriched samples in clinical settings. In this population‐based prospective study, we aimed – for the first time – to assess the incidence rate of clinical psychosis and es­timate the population attributable fracti...
Article
Full-text available
Background Evidence suggests that the impact of adult stressful life events (SLE) on health depends on an individual’s environmental and genetic predisposition to psychopathology. However, the influence of the genomic and exposomic (the sum of exposures) liabilities for schizophrenia on the association between SLE and health outcomes in the general...
Article
Full-text available
Background Contemporary models of psychosis implicate the importance of affective dysregulation and cognitive factors (e.g. biases and schemas) in the development and maintenance of psychotic symptoms, but studies testing proposed mechanisms remain limited. This study, uniquely using a prospective design, investigated whether the jumping to conclus...
Article
Full-text available
The 12-month and lifetime prevalence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in different country populations has been assessed while using clinical interviews. Because this methodology is relatively time-consuming and resource-intensive, disaster health researchers adopted instruments, like the Trauma Screening Questionnaire (TSQ). This study (1)...

Article
Full-text available
Background Evidence suggests that cannabis use, childhood adversity, and urbanicity, in interaction with proxy measures of genetic risk, may facilitate onset of psychosis in the sense of early affective dysregulation becoming ‘complicated’ by, first, attenuated psychosis and, eventually, full-blown psychotic symptoms. Methods Data were derived fro...
Article
Full-text available
Although earlier trauma exposure is known to predict posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after subsequent traumas, it is unclear whether this association is limited to cases where the earlier trauma led to PTSD. Resolution of this uncertainty has important implications for research on pretrauma vulnerability to PTSD. We examined this issue in the...
Article
Full-text available
Background The jumping to conclusions (JTC) reasoning bias and decreased working memory performance (WMP) are associated with psychosis, but associations with affective disturbances (i.e. depression, anxiety, mania) remain inconclusive.
