ABSTRACT Liaison mental health services LMHS developed originally to address the mental health needs of people with physical illnesses in general hospitals and more recently to work also with people with mental health problems presenting at non-mental health services.

While there is an extensive international literature on liaison mental health services, Callaghan et al., in their review of 17 evaluative studies of these services, point out that most investigations examine the structure and process of liaison work, with little attention paid to outcome variables such as compliance with treatment recommendations and patient satisfaction.

... Peers Envisioning and Engaging in Recovery Services. Peers Envisioning and Engaging in Recovery Services. SAMHSA Administrator: Shift focus of national mental health dialogue from blame to social inclusion October 26, 2011 Written by Shannon Eliot. In fact, surveys show that 30 percent of individuals would think less of a person who has an addiction, and 20 percent would think less of a person who is in recovery from an addiction, according to Hyde. Because reality is much more nuanced than those numbers, Hyde said, there is a real need for constant national dialogue about mental health. This blame then leads to misunderstandings about mental health and substance abuse, which are manifested in prejudice, discrimination, and damaging media portrayals of help centers, according to Hyde. “We also hear institutional blame with discussions around welfare systems driven by substance abuse and mental illness issues. "It needs to be based on social inclusion, healthier communities, and healthier people.". By the...

These decisions are being made as counties learn their specific state allocations for mental health programs for fiscal 2012-13 and wait to find out which of them will participate in a new state block grant program for managing human services programs, said Christopher Wysocki speaking on behalf of the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania.

*  Male depression: Understanding the issues - Mayo Clinic
... By Mayo Clinic Staff. These unhealthy coping strategies may be clues that you have male depression. When depression occurs in men, it may be masked by unhealthy coping behavior. But male depression usually gets better with treatment. Depression signs and symptoms can differ in men and women. Men also tend to use different coping skills both healthy and unhealthy than women do. Because these behaviors could be signs of or might overlap with other mental health issues, professional help is the key to an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Resisting mental health treatment. Although women attempt suicide more often than men do, men are more likely to complete suicide. Call a suicide hotline number in the United States, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK 800-273-8255 to reach a trained counselor. Make an appointment with your doctor, other health care provider or mental health provider. If you or someone close to you thinks you may be depressed, talk to your doctor or a m...

*  Feature Story: Being A Man About It: Researcher examines why males underuse mental health services
What we ve found is that traditional notions of masculinity and traditional male gender roles can be quite harmful to men, says Rochlen. Gender studies, as they relate to physical and mental health, are increasingly showing that men and women handle mental and emotional distress very differently and certainly take different approaches to getting help. Although many more men than women commit suicide, for example, says Rochlen, we re still seeing that most patients who are getting mental health services are women. Laura Ebady, a therapist at the campus Counseling and Mental Health Center, can attest to the fact that males often seek professional help with much reluctance and only as a last resort. A lot of these men do not realize they re depressed, says Ebady. Researchers using this tool have found that men with gender role conflict tend to have higher rates of depression and anxiety, lower self-esteem, heightened stress levels, higher rates of substance and alcohol abuse, significant problems with intimacy a...

For a long time, even once I had officially been diagnosed with the disorder, I refused to believe that this monster wasn t my friend, I refused to believe I was underweight and that my health was being detrimentally affected by this awful illness. Whilst at times I saw it as a positive, and would be upset in unintentionally losing it again after only having put a little bit on the week before, there were other times when putting on weight was seen as the worst possible thing I could do, especially if in my mind it had gone up too quickly....

(1/1841) Dilemmas of medical ethics in the Canadian Penitentiary Service.

There is a unique hospital in Canada-and perhaps in the world-because it is built outside prison walls and it exists specifically for the psychiatric treatment of prisoners. It is on the one hand a hospital and on the other a prison. Moreover it has to provide the same quality and standard of care which is expected of a hospital associated with a university. From the time the hospital was established moral dilemmas appeared which were concerned with conflicts between the medical and custodial treatment of prisoners, and also with the attitudes of those having the status of prisoner-patient. Dr Roy describes these dilemmas and attitudes, and in particular a special conference which was convened to discuss them. Not only doctors and prison officials took part in this meeting but also general practitioners, theologians, philosophers, ex-prisoners, judges, lawyers, Members of Parliament and Senators. This must have been a unique occasion and Dr Roy's description may provide the impetus to examine these prison problems in other settings.  (+info)

(2/1841) 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)

(3/1841) 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)

(4/1841) Mental health care in the primary health care setting: a collaborative study in six countries of Central America.

The results of a naturalistic epidemiological study conducted in 6 Central American countries in collaboration with the WHO/PAHO Regional Office are reported, aimed at describing the patients with mental distress presenting to the primary health care setting, the interventions enacted and the evolution of the patients over the 6 months following recruitment. A total of 812 patients were recruited by the personnel of 11 primary health care centres. A high degree of heterogeneity was observed with respect to the patients' characteristics and the patterns of care provided. The factors potentially contributing to the heterogeneity, identified through multivariate analyses, are discussed in detail against the specific background differences between countries and between areas within each country. Interestingly albeit expectedly, besides the differences in health care provision and availability, social needs appear to influence both interventions and outcomes.  (+info)

(5/1841) Looking beyond the formulary budget in cost-benefit analysis.

With the introduction of newer, more expensive psychotropic medications, healthcare providers and managed care administrators must consider whether these drugs offer "value for the money." A true picture of the benefits of these drugs emerges only when all the costs of treatment are considered. Focusing exclusively on the acquisition cost of the drug can result in a misleading impression of the drug's worth. Although the medication costs associated with treating a patient with a newer drug increase, use of these agents may actually result in an overall decrease in healthcare costs, through reductions in hospitalization and length of stay, use of mental health services, and prescriptions for adjunctive drugs. In one study of the newer antipsychotic agent risperidone, the overall annual costs of treating a patient with schizophrenia were reduced by nearly $8,000 (Canadian dollars), even though medication costs increased by approximately $1,200 (Canadian dollars). Retrospective and prospective pharmacoeconomic studies can provide valuable data on the cost effectiveness of treatment with newer psychotropic medications.  (+info)

(6/1841) Behavioral health services: carved out and managed.

This article highlights the financial pressures that led to an examination of how mental healthcare was provided and paid for, and discusses the rise, characteristics, and functioning of carved-out behavioral healthcare. The typical characteristics of managed behavioral health carve outs (MBHCOs), including contracts, payment arrangements, provider networks, and data collection are discussed and illustrated using the example of United Behavioral Health. The article details the function of the MBHCO on cost and utilization, access, quality, and the relationship of behavioral health services to general medical care and other human services, but cautions that further research is needed to evaluate the qualitative aspects of care.  (+info)

(7/1841) Mental disorders in the primary care sector: a potential role for managed care.

This activity is designed for leaders and managers of managed care organizations and for primary care physicians involved in evaluating, treating, and caring for patients with mental disorders. GOAL: To provide a better understanding of primary care patients' needs for mental health services and how managed care companies might best address these needs. OBJECTIVES: 1. Describe problems in detection of mental disorders 2. Discuss the specific ways in which treatments can be improved for mental disorders under managed care systems.  (+info)

(8/1841) A conflict of strategies: Medicaid managed care and Medicaid maximization.

OBJECTIVE: To examine the influence of state strategies aimed at increasing federal Medicaid matching dollars on the design of states' Medicaid managed care programs. STUDY DESIGN: Data obtained from the 1996-1997 case studies of 13 states to examine how states have adapted the design of their Medicaid managed care programs in part because of maximization strategies, to accommodate the many roles and responsibilities that Medicaid has assumed over the years. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Our study showed that as states made the shift to managed care, some found that the responsibilities undertaken in part through maximization strategies proved to be in conflict with their Medicaid managed care initiatives. Among other things, the study revealed that most states included provisions that preserved the health care safety net, such as adapting the managed care benefit package and promoting the participation of safety net providers in managed care programs. In addition, most of the study states continued to pay special subsidies to safety net providers, including hospitals and clinics. CONCLUSIONS: States have made real progress in moving a large number of Medicaid beneficiaries into managed care. At the same time, many states have specially crafted their managed care programs to accommodate safety net providers and existing funding mechanisms. By making these adaptations states, in the long run, may compromise the central goals of managed care: controlling costs and improving Medicaid beneficiaries' access to and quality of care.  (+info)


What mental health services could you benefit from?


Hi, I'm conducting an informal survey for mental health services, my question is, if you were to receive counseling or assistance from a mental health services provider, what would you want?  For example if you are depressed, what kind of attention/care would you hope to get?  I appreciate your time.  Thanks!
----------

I am already on medication for both BiPolar and anxiety, so I suppose that talk therapy about the causes of my episodes would be helpful, too.


How are the adult mental health services compared to child and adolescent mental health services in the UK?


I've been in mental health services since i was 11. I'm 17 now n 18 later this year. I've found child and adolescent mental health services useless up to this point.

So i guess i'm just wondering if there's better care provided by the adult team?
----------

Child and adolescent services in the UK are so **** I was in CAHMS since I was 10 and they never helped one bit but adult services aren't so great either. I'm 18 now and I have only just been taken seriously after being hospitalized and finally I have a diagnosis but they do not listen, the UK are hopeless in health care because its free. I hope you get the help you need, good luck x


Are there any free mental health services available?


I'm majorly bipolar and have no insurance nor do I make enough money to afford treatment. Are there any types of mental health services available for low income families? I've got to do something before this illness takes a turn for the worse.
----------

It completely depends on where you live, but most major counties and cities within the United States have mental health facilities funded by the local governments that will see people either for free or at a highly reduced rate.  Often times they will also provide any medication you may need as part of your treatment.  These do tend to be a little difficult to get into sometimes do to the overwhelming need for these services, and you may be placed on a waiting list, but some even have referral suggestions to other free services in your area while you wait to move up on the list.  Try searching the name of your town on the net and add the terms county mental health offices to your search.




Who are the institutions here in Columbus, Texas that provide mental health services?


I don't want to think that I am schizophrenic or I suffer from bipolar disorder but I don't understand myself. Sometimes I feel so happy and then after a while, I feel so depressed. I know my situation isn't common but I think I need medication. Although people may laugh at me or something, I believe I have to be honest about my condition. I hope my depression isn't serious... Please tell me the the institutions here in Columbus that give mental health services. Thank you very much.
----------

Don't feel so bad about it. The fact that you recognize that you have a problem means that you're sane! It's okay to consult an expert to know what is happening to you. Below are the sources that I think can help you find a good institution. You can also browse the yellow pages or ask for the help of your friends to make your burden lighter. Good luck.


Where can i read stories of young people's experiences of mental health services?


Is there anywhere where i can read about the experiences of young people who have been involved with the mental health services? 

Specifically i am looking for the experiences of 17 year old males involved with CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services), but experiances outside of this criteria will be helpful too. 

I am looking to put their feedback into part of a presentation on the problems young people with mental health problems face.
----------

Have you tried Youngminds.org.uk

It might have something - there are experiences of children - not sure how old.


how much does the UK spend on mental health services each year?


What are the total annual expenditures of the UK on mental health services? Per-capita expenditures?
----------

A totally bonkers amount.


I need free mental health services in Dallas at Parkland Hospital?


I need mental health services but I am completely broke and do not have a job. They said I could qualify for state funded insurance but I couldn't find out if I qualify unless I go to the hospital which is quite far from me. Does anyone know how you qualify for this? I am 24 years old and have middle class parents.
----------

Can't tell you for certain, but here's a link to some government resources for low/no cost mental health.


rules about being discharged from mental health services in the UK ?


Could someone please tell me the rules and considerations of being discharged from mental health services in the uk. I'm 30 years old and suffer from borderline personality disorder, anxiety and depression. I also self harm. I'm scared my psychiatrist and CPN will discharge me before i'm ready. I'm currently on an enhanced CPA and i take trazodone and olanzapine.What rules/considerations come into my  being discharged. Can a psychiatrist discharge me without my care coordinator's permission ?. Please can someone just give me some infomation on this subject ?
