Panic may Lead to Serious Mental Health Problems in Adolescents

For most teenagers a run up the stairs is simply the quickest way to get from one floor to another. For others the resulting breathlessness// and pounding heart triggers anxiety or fear – possibly predicting a future vulnerability to panic symptoms.

Ellen W. Leen-Feldner, a University of Arkansas psychologist, has found that adolescents who tend to respond fearfully to such common bodily reactions can have a tough time during adolescence. As an adolescent grows and the body changes, the adolescent may become more vulnerable to panic symptoms, which can lead to other serious problems.

“Panic might be thought of as a ‘gateway condition’ that can predict the development of an array of mental health problems,” Leen-Feldner said. “We have had little understanding of the risk factors for adolescents.”

To begin to fill the gap, Leen-Feldner and colleagues Laura E. Reardon, Kimberly Babson and Matthew Feldner, all of the University of Arkansas, as well as Laura McKee and Michael J. Zvolensky of the University of Vermont, conducted a study that is the first direct test of the relation between puberty and panic-type responding for both male and female adolescents. They published the results, titled “The Interactive Role of Anxiety Sensitivity and Pubertal Status in Predicting Anxious Responding to Bodily Sensations among Adolescents,” in a recent issue of Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology.

While existing research has suggested that puberty might be a critical period of high risk in terms of the development of mental illnesses, relatively little was known about the link between puberty and vulnerability to panic attacks. Given that puberty is a stage of life marked by significant physical changes, it makes sense that it might be an important phase when teenagers are at risk for developing panic-type problems.

The researchers designed their study to look specifically at one factor in the relationship between puber
