It has been well established that early adversity is a major risk factor for depression and for anxiety disorders in various populations and age groups. Few studies have considered the relative strength of these associations and the possible role of co‐morbid depression/anxiety in understanding them. Using data from a large community sample of Ontario, Canada, we examined the relative strength of the associations between early physical abuse, sexual abuse, and/or parental strain with depression… Expand
Childhood adversities as risk factors for adult mental disorders
TLDR
There are marked sex differences and several diagnosis-related patterns in the associations between reported childhood experiences and environmental circumstances and adulthood mental disorders. Expand
Early Adversity and the Prospective Prediction of Depressive and Anxiety Disorders in Adolescents
TLDR
It is indicated that adolescents with anxiety disorders were more likely than depressed youth to have been exposed to various early stressors, such as maternal prenatal stress, multiple maternal partner changes, and more total adversities, whereas few early childhood variables predicted depressive disorders. Expand
The specificity of childhood adversities and negative life events across the life span to anxiety and depressive disorders.
TLDR
Emotional neglect seems to be differentially related to depression, dysthymia and social phobia, and this knowledge may help to reduce underestimation of the impact of emotional abuse and lead to better recognition and treatment to prevent long-term disorders. Expand
Childhood Adversity and Perceived Need for Mental Health Care: Findings from a Canadian Community Sample
TLDR
Examining the association between a wide range of childhood adversities with self-perceived need for mental health treatment and DSM-III-R diagnosis in a Canadian community sample found that emotional neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, paternal psychopathology, and maternal psychopathology were independently and significantly associated with respondents meeting DSM criteria for a mental disorder and perceived need for treatment.

TLDR
It was found that the greatest disease risk (comorbid depression and chronic pain conditions) was related to the greatest number of childhood risk factors. Expand

TLDR
Pictive effects of CAs on the SDS were particularly pronounced for anxiety disorders and were significant in predicting increased days out of role associated with mood, anxiety and disruptive behavior disorders. Expand
Incidence and risk patterns of anxiety and depressive disorders and categorization of generalized anxiety disorder.

Anxiety and depressive disorders appear to differ with regard to risk constellations and temporal longitudinal patterns, and GAD is a heterogeneous disorder that is, overall, more closely related to other anxiety disorders than to depressive disorders. Expand
Gender differences in depression and anxiety across the adult lifespan: the role of psychosocial mediators
TLDR
Several shared mediators for depression and anxiety across the three age groups including: childhood adversity, mastery, behavioural inhibition, ruminative style, neuroticism, physical health, physical activity, and perceived interpersonal and employment problems are indicated. Expand
Correlates of adverse childhood experiences among adults with severe mood disorders.
TLDR
Increased exposure to childhood adverse experiences was related to high-risk behaviors, diagnosis of a substance use disorder, exposure to trauma in adulthood, psychiatric problems, medical service utilization, and homelessness. Expand
Independent and cumulative impacts of adverse childhood experiences on adolescent subgroups of anxiety and depression
