Mental health and bone quality in Australian women.


The project focuses on evaluating the impact of long?term depression and anxiety on new onset osteoporosis and low?trauma fractures among mid?aged Australian women over 15 years. People with long?term depression and anxiety have been shown to have a higher risk of osteoporosis and low?trauma fractures in epidemiological studies, but the exact association and biological interplay among these factors are long?debated and mostly underexplored. Alongside the ALSWH survey data, this project will be using linked data for better understanding of this relationship.
