Anxiety 'disorders' in poor mothers likely result from poverty not mental illness

    I wonder if something similar can be said for anxiety and depression with ME/CFS, where "contextual factors and environmental deficits" (and biological factors) are routinely ignored?

    lol. Thanks biophile.

    It's just hilarious how basic some of these observations are... and how they get brushed aside by so many of those who want to build careers managing the minds of others. It's good to see researchers making these points, but my fear and expectation is that it will have little impact. Those working in this area have little motivation that more money should be spent on providing financial aid to those in difficult positions and less on their psychological management.

    It's hard to imagine anything more anxiety inducing than being an impoverished mother. Should be pretty obvious. hopefully this research may actually lead to support services for all kinds of people who need it...

    Sickness, disability, mental disease, unemployment and poverty are all linked and this has been known for decades.
    As politics moves further to the right these links will become firmer.
