[Health Channel/Comprehensive Report]Some people’s mental health problems may be related to childhood development. Children with cognitive problems, such as poor concentration, poor memory or lack of inhibition, may experience mental health problems in adolescence and adulthood, new research shows.
The research was led by the University of Birmingham and published in JAMA Network Open. In total, the research team analysed 13,988 children born in the UK between April 1991 and December 1992. Studies have found that problems with concentration, memory or inhibition in children are associated with a number of mental health conditions later in life:

●Borderline personality disorder at age 11 and 12 and depressive symptoms at age 17 and 18 were associated with attention deficit in children at age 8.
●Mental illness at the age of 17 and 18 is related to the inhibition difficulties in childhood at the age of 8.
● Hypomanic symptoms at age 22 and 23 were associated with memory impairment in childhood at age 10.
Isabel Morales-Muñoz, PhD, from the University of Birmingham’s Institute of Mental Health, said the study confirms that cognitive deficits in children do have a large impact on the potential impact on young people’s minds.
Mental disorders pose a significant global burden of disease, with at least 10% of children and adolescents worldwide suffering from mental illness, the team said. And 75% of psychiatric disorders diagnosed in adults develop symptoms during childhood and adolescence.
The research team believes that affective disorders, depressive symptoms and psychosis usually appear in adolescence and persist in adolescence, and these psychological conditions may be related to social, biological or environmental factors, and also contribute to abnormal development in adolescents.
