There is much research about personality development and childhood. The onset of many mental disorders and illnesses, will occur in early adulthood. Studies are done to link certain childhood personality traits with the manifestation of the illness in adulthood. Conversely, there is much research into the onset of aged onset dementia, Alzheimer's and the like.
With the exception of the Mid Life Crisis, I have not seen much research on the onset of mental disorders or mental illness in adults during midlife, or approx. 35-50 years. What studies are there investigating major personality changes later in a person's life?
An example could be the percentage of new diagnoses of "a particular illness" for 35-50 year old age group.
I am not interested in an ongoing illness that was diagnosed as a younger adult and is still occurring during this age group. I am interested in the first time onset of an illness in an individual during these years.
