A new study says people with the mental illness ocean mental disorder are less likely to seek help from health-care providers than those without it.
The study, which was published Monday in the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, found the odds of getting help in the ocean were roughly twice as high among people with ocean disorder compared to those without the condition.
People with ocean mental disorders are at a higher risk of having more serious symptoms of depression, anxiety, substance abuse and social isolation, and are more likely to suffer from psychotic symptoms.
The risk increases even further among people who are already in the hospital, according to the study.
The research also found people with marine disorder have a higher rate of suicide attempts and a higher likelihood of having suicidal thoughts.
The researchers found people who have ocean mental distress are more than twice as likely to report that they have tried to commit suicide.
The finding was the result of a survey of more than 1,000 people in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, conducted in 2015.
“The results are striking and confirm what we’ve known for a while: People with ocean disorders are more vulnerable to mental illness than the general population,” said study author Dr. Daniel M. McEwen, a psychiatrist and director of the mental health services program at McMaster University in Hamilton.
“While it’s hard to predict how these differences in outcomes will impact the overall health of the population, we can be sure that these results provide some reassurance to those who experience ocean mental problems.”
McEwen is one of the researchers involved in the study and was not involved in its execution.
The findings have been confirmed by the Canadian Mental Health Association and the American Psychiatric Association.
The findings are consistent with other research that has shown ocean mental conditions may cause depression and anxiety.
The researchers say the increased risk of suicide in people with depression and anxious disorders is also likely due to the increased severity of mental illness.
