  • TITLE: Mental and Cardiovascular Health of Portuguese Subjects in a Situation of Economic Insufficiency

    AUTHORS: Eduardo Gonçalves, Emanuel Marco Moniz, Saul Neves de Jesus

    KEYWORDS: Poverty, Stress, Affects, Depression, Heart Rate Variability, Social Support, Resilience, Economic Behavior

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Psychiatry, Vol.5 No.4, October 19, 2015

    ABSTRACT: Economic insufficiency causes stress and negative affects. Poverty is self-perpetuated, also due to a particular pattern of economic behaviors induced by negative affects and stress. Often, loneliness occurs together with economic insufficiency. For this study, it has been selected a sample of convenience. A positive correlation between anxiety/depression and negative affects is presented. Dispositional optimism and social support, factors which contribute to health, serve as buffers, in negative correlation, of the negative impact of negative affects, due to financial restraint, on health. Financial management is negatively correlated with the lack of cardiovascular health, and cardiovascular dysfunction correlates positively with loneliness, in this study. Positive affects correlate positively with resilience skills, which correlate negatively with depression. Within this context, psychobiological therapeutic interventions and psychotherapy, which also target psychological dysfunction related to economic behavior of persons in a situation of poverty, would be beneficial.
