Abstract Summary Points: * Co-occurring addictive and other mental disorders AMDs are common, especially in treatment services, so screening for substance use and mental health symptoms should be routine.----- * Low levels of substance use or psychological problems can have a substantial impact if a companion disorder is severe or if functioning is poor. Screening should not exclusively focus on severe disorder.----- * AMDs are often more than dual, involving multiple substances and mental disorders, and complex life problems. Comprehensive management requires a wide-ranging assessment.----- * Symptoms of disorders often overlap, and a confident diagnosis often requires repeated or retrospective assessments.----- * AMDs sometimes occur in primary–secondary relationships, but often are mutually interacting, and their...

WTAE 4 supports Bring Change 2 Mind. Community - WTAE Home. WTAE 4 supports "Bring Change 2 Mind" Published 8:58 AM EDT Jun 22, 2012. Bring Change 2 Mind is a national anti-stigma campaign founded by Glenn Close, The Balanced Mind Foundation, Fountain House, and Garen Shari Staglin of the International Mental Health Research Organization IMHRO, aimed at removing misconceptions about mental illness. The idea was born out of a partnership between Glenn Close and Fountain House, where Glenn volunteered in order to learn more about mental illness, which both her sister, Jessie Close, and nephew, Calen Pick, live with. One of the best ways you can help someone with mental illness is by understanding what it is — and what it isn't. After all, myths about mental illnesses contribute to stigma, which in turn prevents those who are living with one from seeking help. The fact is, a mental illness is a disorder of the brain — your body's most important organ — and 1 in 6 adults lives with a brain-related illness includi...

But words and are just words until they are acted upon and negative feelings can spur positive actions. Defining Goals When Living With A Mental Illness.

In different forms of entertainment, such as movies, television shows, books, magazines, and news, those living with mental illness are sometimes shown to be stereotypically violent and unpredictable, unlike how many of those with mental illnesses truly are. 1 The way that mental illnesses are portrayed in different forms of entertainment can contribute to public stigma. Public or social stigma is the awareness of stereotypes that the public and society holds about people who are living with mental illnesses. 2 In movies this often means portraying characters a physically violent and unpredictable, like in the 1978 movie Halloween, in which the villain is a patient that escaped from a mental institution.

And something similar needs to happen in mental health because, she says, "everything from autism to Alzheimer's is classified in ways that clearly don't work today." Desmond-Hellman adds that she's not criticizing psychiatrists or psychologists for using the DSM. This sort of research has the potential to uncover problems in the brain that will change the way mental disorders are classified, Insel says. "We said that by the time DSM-5 comes out, Alzheimer's will be the first diagnosis that has a laboratory test." That hasn't happened.

Spitzer s assurances about parsing these diagnoses between disorders of psychological and biological origin, psychiatry became focused on biology, and the that sorting, or even any attempts disappeared. The DSM-5 Task Force began its life in 2002 with the explicit goal of matching the findings of biological research with the diagnostic system, completing the transition to a biology based system, but that enterprise failed globally.

*  Your Psychiatric Illness May Be Caused By A Minor Glandular Issue
... Follow Jezebel. Following Jezebel. Jezebel. Your Psychiatric Illness May Be Caused By A Minor Glandular Issue. Margaret Hartmann Filed to: Health. Hypothyroidism. Psychiatric problems. Mental Illness. For some people issues like depression and anxiety may actually be caused by thyroid imbalances so slight that doctors may not even think that they need to be treated. Russell Joffe, a North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System psychiatrist, has concluded that treating patients for subclinical thyroid problems can sometimes make their psychiatric issues disappear. The thyroid gland produces two hormones that regulate various functions in the body, including body temperature, heartbeat, and cognitive functioning. When someone produces way too much of the hormones, a condition known as hyperthyroidism, their metabolism speeds up and they experience symptoms like sweating, weight loss, and anxiety. Is there an underlying thyroid problem that causes psychiatric symptoms, or is it the other way around. Doctors...

*  Cost of treating seriously mentally ill persons with HIV following highly active retroviral therapy
This current study examines 2003 Medicaid expenditures associated with the treatment of adults with both serious mental illness and HIV, compared to those with HIV and serious mental illness only. In 2003, 788 persons with both SMI and HIV had the highest treatment expenditures at $23,842 per person followed by 2984 persons with HIV-only at $13,183, while the SMI-only group of 19,664 individuals was $11,860 per person. The co-morbidity expenditure ratio in 2003 for the co-morbid population compared to the SMI-only group was 2.0 and 1.8 for the co-morbid population to the HIV-only population. The share of inpatient cost was reduced from 64% of total costs in 1996 to 30% of total cost in 2003. Although the study data suggests that individuals with both HIV and serious mental illness are receiving similar treatment for their HIV disorder as those with HIV alone, a concern that requires further investigation is the finding that HAART treatment is being used by less than 50% of the co-morbid and HIV only study pop...

I was originally researching autism and the different TV characters that seem to portray many of their traits when I stumbled across a post about the different mental disorders each character in the Winnie The Pooh books depict. This isn’t the first time a big part of my childhood has been damaged by the apparent “truth” behind the story but, nevertheless, my curiosity got the better of me and I began to ruin yet another memory….

*  Disease
Medical disorders can be categorized into mental disorder s, physical disorder s, genetic disorder s, emotional and behavioral disorders , and functional disorder s. However, the term ''disorder'' is also used in many other areas of medicine, primarily to identify physical disorders that are not caused by infectious organisms, such as metabolic disorder s. Medical condition A '''medical condition''' is a broad term that includes all diseases, lesion s and disorders. While the term ''medical condition'' generally includes mental illnesses, in some contexts the term is used specifically to denote any illness, injury, or disease except for mental illnesses. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM , the widely used psychiatric manual that defines all mental disorder s, uses the term ''general medical condition'' to refer to all diseases, illnesses, and injuries except for mental disorder s. It is commonly used in contrast with mental disorders. Some diseases, such as most but not all forms o...

Mental illnesses are medical illnesses. The more people know, the better they can help themselves or help their loved ones get the help and support they need. Dear True Friend : Those who abuse substances such as drugs and alcohol may need a family intervention. If any of these are occurring, a family intervention could help the addict to get the treatment that he/she needs. The family and friends who are concerned about their loved one s substance use disorders will gather and plan an intervention. Consequences for the addict if he/she refuses help and treatment on the day of the intervention will be stated by the family and friends. I have a family member that has two serious mental illnesses schizophrenia and Bi-polar disorder. Signs and Symptoms: From the VERY FIRST time someone uses the drug, there are certain physical signs and signals that vary from one person to another.

Most of us would like to feel better. We would like to have more energy and have a better mood. We would like to feel calmer and be able to concentrate better. While as a psychiatrist I focus on the mind, paying attention to your body can help you feel better. Often it can help you feel a lot better. While it is easy to generate a list of things that will help you to be healthier; getting yourself to do them is hard. Many people with serious mental illness also have serious medical problems. Many people are overweight, do not exercise enough, and smoke. Some medications increase the risk of medical problems including obesity and diabetes. Many people with serious mental illness are poor, which adds an entire layer of health risk. And as a result, people with major mental illness dies 25 years younger than the rest of the population. Exercise: Anything that gets your heart rate up for 30 minutes at a time, three or four times a week will help you feel better both emotionally and physically. You can t...

ON MENTAL ILLNESS: Recovery is a Lifelong Endeavor. Friday January 11, 2013. Columns ON MENTAL ILLNESS: Recovery is a Lifelong Endeavor By Jack Bragen Friday January 11, 2013 - 01:52:00 PM. When someone is correctly diagnosed with a major mental illness, the path of life is changed indelibly. The individual is on a path of either recognizing and dealing with his or her psychiatric illness, or being in denial and having a path of repeated disasters. While a person with mental illness is usually better off being medication compliant, some things other than pills that come with the package deal of a diagnosis need not be swallowed. For example, we should not believe people's assertions that we will be permanently disabled and unable to work. Many people with psychiatric conditions are able to work or be self-employed, and only the worst of counselors will advise a person that they can't work. While there are counselors who know a lot, we should keep the thought that we have valuable life experiences. We should n...

(1/7369) Failing firefighters: a survey of causes of death and ill-health retirement in serving firefighters in Strathclyde, Scotland from 1985-94.

During the decade beginning 1 January 1985, 887 full-time firefighters, all male, left the service of Strathclyde Fire Brigade (SFB). There were 17 deaths--compared to 64.4 expected in the Scottish male population aged 15-54 years--giving a standardized mortality ratio (SMR) of 26, and 488 ill-health retirements (IHR). None of the deaths was attributable to service, the major causes being: myocardial infarction--five, (expected = 17.3; SMR = 29); cancers--three (colon, kidney and lung) (expected = 13.6; SMR = 22); road traffic accidents--two (expected = 4.17; SMR = 48) and suicide--two (expected = 4.9; SMR = 41). Amalgamating the deaths and IHRs showed that the six most common reasons for IHR were musculoskeletal (n = 202, 40%), ocular (n = 61, 12.1%), 'others' (n = 58, 11.5%), injuries (n = 50, 9.9%), heart disease (n = 48, 9.5%) and mental disorders (n = 45, 8.9%). Over 300 IHRs (over 60%) occurred after 20 or more years service. When the IHRs were subdivided into two quinquennia, there were 203 and 302 in each period. Mean length of service during each quinquennium was 19.4 vs. 21.3 years (p = 0.003) and median length was 21 years in both periods; interquartile range was 12-26 years in the first and 17-27 years in the second period (p = 0.002), but when further broken down into diagnostic categories, the differences were not statistically significant, with the exception of means of IHRs attributed to mental disorders (14.5 vs. 19 years, p = 0.03).  (+info)

Two-dimensional SPECT display and three methods for integrated visualization of SPECT and MRI patient data are evaluated in a multiobserver study to determine whether localization of functional data can be improved by adding anatomical information to the display. METHODS: SPECT and MRI data of 30 patients were gathered and presented using four types of display: one of SPECT in isolation, two integrated two-dimensional displays and one integrated three-dimensional display. Cold and hot spots in the peripheral cortex were preselected and indicated on black-and-white hard copies of the image data. Nuclear medicine physicians were asked to assign the corresponding spots in the image data on the computer screen to a lobe and a gyrus and give a confidence rating for both localizations. Interobserver agreement using kappa statistics and average confidence ratings were assessed to interpret the reported observations. RESULTS: Both the interobserver agreement and the confidence of the observers were greater for the integrated two-dimensional displays than for the two-dimensional SPECT display. An additional increase in agreement and confidence was seen with the integrated three-dimensional display. CONCLUSION: Integrated display of SPECT and MR brain images provides better localization of cerebral blood perfusion abnormalities in the peripheral cortex in relation to the anatomy of the brain than single-modality display and increases the confidence of the observer.  (+info)

(3/7369) Investigating fatigue of less than 6 months' duration. Guidelines for family physicians.

OBJECTIVE: To develop an evidence-based systematic approach to assessment of adult patients who present to family physicians complaining of fatigue of less than 6 months' duration. The guidelines present investigative options, making explicit what should be considered in all cases and what should be considered only in specific situations. They aim to provide physicians with an approach that, to the extent possible, is based on evidence so that time and cost are minimized and detection and management of the cause of the fatigue are optimized. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: MEDLINE was searched from 1966 to 1997 using the key words "family practice" and "fatigue." Articles about chronic fatigue syndrome were excluded. Articles with level 3 evidence were found, but no randomized trials, cohort studies, or case-control studies were found. Articles looking specifically at the epidemiology, demographics, investigations, and diagnoses of patients with fatigue were chosen. Articles based on studies at referral and specialty centres were given less weight than those based on studies in family physicians' offices. MAIN MESSAGE: Adherence to these guidelines will decrease the cost of investigating the symptom of fatigue and optimize diagnosis and management. This needs to be proved in practice, however, and with research that produces level 1 and 2 evidence. CONCLUSIONS: Adults presenting with fatigue of less than 6 months' duration should be assessed for psychosocial causes and should have a focused history and physical examination to determine whether further investigations should be done. The guidelines outline investigations to be considered. The elderly require special consideration. These guidelines have group validation, but they need to be tested by more physicians in various locations and types of practices.  (+info)

(4/7369) Some neurobiological aspects of psychotherapy. A review.

Ever since the idea was accepted that memory is associated with alterations in synaptic strength, studies on the cellular and molecular mechanisms responsible for the plastic changes in neurons have attracted wide interest in the scientific community. This article explores the process of memory consolidation leading to persistent modifications in synaptic plasticity as a mechanism by which psychotherapy facilitates changes in the permanent storage of information acquired throughout the individual's life. The psychobiological interrelationships of affect, attachment, and memory offer a perspective regarding the etiology and treatment of clinical disturbances of affect. Analogies between brain physiology and modes of psychotherapy provide the foundation for a review of psychiatric disorders involving the inability to control fear, obsessions, compulsions, and delusions, all of which respond to psychotherapeutic interventions.  (+info)

(5/7369) A critical approach to stress-related disorders in African Americans.

This article outlines an integrative, dynamic approach to stress and is, in part, a response to emergent debates within social science research and practice that suggest that African Americans are currently experiencing the reverberating psychological effects of slavery and oppression. It is the product of the work of an African-American mental health think tank situated at the Community Mental Health Council, Chicago, Illinois. We suggest the need to attend to biopsychosocial, environmental, and cultural factors that inform both exposure and responses to stress. Finally, consideration is given to matters of resiliency.  (+info)

(6/7369) Behavioral health benefits in employer-sponsored health plans, 1997.

Data for 1997 show that three-quarters or more of employer-sponsored health plans continue to place greater restrictions on behavioral health coverage than on general medical coverage. The nature of these restrictions varies by plan type. Some improvement in the treatment of mental health/substance abuse (MH/SA) benefits in employer plans may be occurring, however. Comparisons with data from 1996 show that the proportion of plans with benefits for "alternative" types of MH/SA services, such as nonhospital residential care, has increased. Further, the proportion with special limitations on these benefits shows a modest decrease.  (+info)

(7/7369) Mental health/medical care cost offsets: opportunities for managed care.

Health services researchers have long observed that outpatient mental health treatment sometimes leads to a reduction in unnecessary or excessive general medical care expenditures. Such reductions, or cost offsets, have been found following mental health treatment of distressed elderly medical inpatients, some patients as they develop major medical illnesses, primary care outpatients with multiple unexplained somatic complaints, and nonelderly adults with alcoholism. In this paper we argue that managed care has an opportunity to capture these medical care cost savings by training utilization managers to make mental health services more accessible to patients whose excessive use of medical care is related to psychological factors. For financial reasons, such policies are most likely to develop within health care plans that integrate the financing and management of mental health and medical/surgical benefits.  (+info)

(8/7369) An integrated map of chromosome 18 CAG trinucleotide repeat loci.

Expansions of trinucleotide CAG repeats have been demonstrated in at least eight neurodegenerative disorders, and suggested to occur in several others, including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Chromosome 18 loci have been implicated in bipolar disorder pedigrees by linkage analysis. To address this putative link between chromosome 18 CAG trinucleotide repeats and neuropsychiatric illness, we have screened a chromosome 18 cosmid library (LL18NCO2" AD") and identified 14 novel candidate loci. Characterisation of these loci involved repeat flank sequencing, estimation of polymorphism frequency and mapping using FISH as well as radiation hybrid panels. These mapped trinucleotide loci will be useful in the investigation of chromosome 18 in neurodegenerative or psychiatric conditions, and will serve to integrate physical and radiation hybrid maps of chromosome 18.  (+info)


Mental disorders?


what mental disorders existed in the 1940-1950's
----------

All disorders were there.  Do you mean ones they classified or made treatment for?

Here are some helpful links I read:

Mental Disorders.......?


The government should not have to spend taxpayer money to provide services for people with mental disorders.  It is up to the families of these individuals to care for them.  Do you agree or disagree with this statement? and why?
----------

disagree~people have not chosen these illnesses for themselves~and fyi the family does try to care for them to the best of their ability~for as long as they can~walk in those shoes for a week or 2 & see if you feel different♦


mental disorders?


there is a child whose mother is sick and dies.  while she is sick he finds a girl who has the same name as his mother.  after his mother dies he acts depressed, but its not her death that bothers him its the fact that this girl who he thinks is the one doesnt know he is alive.  could the child be seeking out someone to take his mothers place since she is dead?  is there a mental disorder that could explain his behavior?  like depression or anxiety?
----------

This child doesn't happen to have a first name of Norman, does he?

Did his mother own a motel outside of Los Angeles, named the Bates Motel?

What kind of mental disorders do men that rape young girls have?


I am writing a poem for my English class about rape. As an aspiring writer I want to get to know then subject a little better before writing about it. So I would like to know the condition of the men's mental health. Do they have mental disorders? Are they just attracted to younger girls? Is it sometimes because of things that have happened in their past? Tell me as much information as you know, Thank you.
----------

Rapists dont have to be crazy or psychopathic to rape someone. The same as psychopaths aren't rapists. 

I was raped when i was 15-years-old by a school friend. He wasn't much older than me, about six months. He was really popular at school and all the girls fancies him, and i wasn't really... i was shy and a bookworm. I was on my own at a party and he started flirting with me. He had been flirting with me at school too, and i have low self-esteem so of course i liked him instantly.
We went into a bedroom and started making out. But then he pushed me down and held me by the neck so i couldn't scream. He was saying things like "your going to love it" and "this is what you wanted you prude"..
Anyway, i just kind of took it, because i was scared he would hurt me even more if i fought back. I told my friends who told the police, but he only got two years on the sex offenders register.

The police told me that he did it because i was an easy target. Rape is about power, not sex.
i hope my story has helped you xxx


What mental disorders are strictly genetic?


I have to do a research paper for school and i wanted to know what mental disorders are strictly genetic.  I was going to do something like schizophrenia or bipolar.  However as some of you may know, these disorders are highly debated whether they are genetic or acquired.
----------

none that are 100% proven to be genetic, although there can be some genetic factors. Honestly, it's a mix of lots of things. Think about it: if evolution and natural selection did happen what would be the benefit in a genetic mental disorder?

here are some that are thought to have some genetic factors:
Depression 
Postpartum depression
Schizophrenia 
Dysthymia
Delusional disorder


What are some interesting and unusual mental disorders?


What are some interesting and unusual mental disorders?
I'm really interested in rare interesting mental disorders such as Trichotillomania (the urge to pull out your own hair) and Body Integrity Identity Disorder (The desire to amputate your own limbs). Can anyone give me a list of other really interesting and crazy mental/psychological disorders?
----------

In east Asia there is one called (IIRC) koro, which is the belief of a man that his penis is shrinking.

Previous commenter mentioned pica - if they mean the compulsion to eat normally inedible things such as dirt and chalk, this is actually more biological, it is the body telling you you're lacking nutrients and craving things that might give them. Similar to food cravings in pregnancy.

http://www.cas.appstate.edu/~kms/classes/psy3202/Latah/latah.htm is an article about regional-specific mental illnesses.


What jobs involve research for mental disorders?


I find mental disorders quite interesting, and I think researching and trying to help find cures and such would make a good occupation.  Is there one like this? If so what is it? How much do they make? Thank you! <3 Please don't give me cocky or jerky comments, thanks again.
----------

You may want to work in the Clinical Trials area of a psychiatric hospital.  It would involve documenting procedures that are used, therapy/medications .  Best Wishes for your future.


What should we do for a mental health/eating disorders awareness week?


My friends and I are in charge of organizing a mental health and eating disorders awareness week at our high school. We are trying to come up with ideas to get students interested and educated on the stuff we're focusing on (EDs, self harm, suicide, self-esteem, etc.)

Do you have any suggestions? We are going to have things like petitions and a No-Diet Day, as well as information on resources, but I'm looking for interactive ways to get the school engaged. Thanks!
----------

I would have available on display,  the definitions of what is depression? What is ED's? Etc.  Also get questionnaires that say, for example, do I have depression?  Its great that you will have resources too. But let people know, maybe by percentage wise. How many people do suffer from mental Illness and that they are not alone. That mental illness doesn't
discriminate. It can happen at any age. That it also can be hereditary.  Mention that fact that name calling does hurt.
And sometimes the people who are made fun of, it can have a long term negative effect. Let people know that if they think someone may hurt themselfs or threaten suicide that it is OK to go to a peer. Maybe they may not think the person is serious, or maybe its a cry for help. Teach that we all need to get involved. That Mental Illness is real. And to the suffer it can be very devastating.  That it is OK, to seek help. That seeking help is not a failure, but a step in the right direction.
