Abstract Children's perceptions are important to understanding family environment in the bipolar disorder (BD) high-risk context. Our objectives were to empirically derive patterns of offspring-perceived family environment, and to test the association of family environment with maternal or paternal BD accounting for offspring BD and demographic characteristics. Participants aged 12–21 years (266 offspring of a parent with BD, 175 offspring of a parent with no psychiatric history) were recruited ...

Abstract Background We previously demonstrated the specificity of familial transmission of the atypical subtype of depression, primarily characterized by overeating and oversleeping. However, the specific components of this subtype that are familial have not been established. The aim of this paper is to examine whether the familial specificity of atypical depression can be attributed to the association between Body Mass Index (BMI) and overweight/obesity with mood disorders. Methods The sample i...
