BACKGROUND Depressive disorders have been linked to health risk-related behaviours (HRBs) considered separately. Our objective was to study whether depression is associated with the co-occurrence of HRBs in adults. METHODS A sample of 17 355 subjects aged > or =18 years, derived from the 2002-03 cross-sectional Decennial Health Survey; probable depression was assessed with the CES-D scale. A cluster analysis of various HRBs (tobacco use, alcohol use, binge drinking, physical inactivity…

Clustering of health risk behaviours and the relationship with mental disorders.
Depressive Symptoms and Behavior-Related Risk Factors, Italian Population-Based Surveillance System, 2013
TLDR
The contribution of this study to the existing evidence lies not just in confirming the association between depression and behavior-related risk factors in the Italian context but also in suggesting that programs for simultaneously improving people’s mental and physical health should be developed and implemented.
Patterns of multiple lifestyle risk factors and their link to mental health in the German adult population: a cross-sectional study
TLDR
Individuals who were male, at younger age and single as well as individuals with various mental health problems were more likely to show multiple lifestyle risk factors.
The Clustering of Health Behaviours in Older Australians and its Association with Physical and Psychological Status, and Sociodemographic Indicators
TLDR
Health lifestyle cluster membership can be used to identify older adults at greatest risk for physical and psychological health morbidity, including smoking, screening and physical activity levels.
Healthy behaviours and mental health: findings from the German Health Update (GEDA).
TLDR
A higher number of healthy behaviours are associated with a lower prevalence of FMD for both women and men and of self-reported diagnosed depression in women.
Socio-demographic factors, behaviour and personality: associations with psychological distress
TLDR
Examination of the association between psychological distress, risk behaviours and patient demographic characteristics in a sample of general practice patients aged 40–65 years with at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease found psychological distress was not associated with behavioural risk factors for cardiovascular Disease.
Clustering of major behavioral risk factors in the Portuguese population with diabetes and their association with self rated health
TLDR
The general purpose of this paper was to identify indicators of an unhealthy dietary pattern based on self reported information about eating habits from the fourth Portuguese NHIS and to identify subgroups of the population with different dietary patterns.
Lifestyle habits and depressive symptoms in Norwegian adolescents: a national cross-sectional study
TLDR
A healthier lifestyle was associated with lower odds of having depressive symptoms and high consumption of a range of healthy food items and low consumption of unhealthy food and beverages among girls.

TLDR
Findings highlight the importance of designing and evaluating primary care-based screening programs and interventions for multiple RBs among younger and less-educated subjects, those with higher depression scores, and subjects who perceived their health as poor.
Major depression and cigarette smoking: results of a 21-year longitudinal study
TLDR
The results suggest that much of the association between smoking and depression reflects common confounding factors that are associated with both outcomes, and even after control for these factors there is evidence of a possible causal linkage betweensmoking and depression.
Prevalence and co-occurrence of health risk behaviors among high-risk drinkers in a primary care population.
TLDR
Smoking, poor diet, and sedentariness are common among HR drinkers and may increase their already elevated health risks, and implications for interventions integrating multiple RBs into primary care settings are discussed.
[Relationship between determining factors for depressive symptoms and for dietary habits in older adults in Mexico].
TLDR
The results confirm the need to take dietary habits and other parameters into account when studying depression in older adults, and resemble the factors that determine poor dietary habits among older adults.

TLDR
Overall, there is a weak level of evidence supporting the hypothesis that obesity increases the incidence of depression outcomes, and this finding warrants additional high-quality etiological research on this topic.
Associations between smoking and depression in adolescence: an integrative review.
TLDR
It is necessary to further explore the relationship between smoking and depression in adolescence and the need for longitudinal research designs, more accurate measurement of depression, and the control of confounders betweensmoking and depression is considered.
