Impact of emotion dysregulation on depression and anxiety in multiple sclerosis

Takeaway

  • People with multiple sclerosis (MS) experience higher levels of depression than those without, and this difference is mediated by higher emotion dysregulation in this population.

Why this matters

    Psychiatric health is an important consideration in integrative care models of MS owing to the negative impact of depression on prognosis, and emotion regulation could be an important target for intervention in this population.
