According to a recent study, experiencing a mental-health issues in midlife might accelerate your aging. The study observed 1.037 participants born in 1972-73 in New Zealand. The investigated health issues were anxiety, depression, substance abuse and schizophrenia.

The researchers found that at age 45, people who experienced the most mental-health problems, were aging approximately 5.3 years faster between ages 26 and 45, compared to participants with the fewest problems.

Another finding was a difference in other signs of aging. At age 45, participants with more mental-health problems performed worse on tests of hearing, vision, balance and cognition, and on motor tests, like walking speed. Moreover, young people with mental-health problems turned to look older their age.

These findings were very similar across all investigated mental-health problems.
