The New York Times (10/4, Brody) focuses on the bidirectionality of anxiety, depression, and “serious physical disease,” including the “the ability to withstand or recover from one.” The Times adds, “What happens inside a person’s head can have damaging effects throughout the body, as well as the other way around” in that “an untreated mental illness can significantly increase the risk of becoming physically ill, and physical disorders may result in behaviors that make mental conditions worse.” (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
