September 23, 2011 Reports of mental health disability increase in US September 23, 2011 The prevalence of self-reported mental health disabilities increased in the U.S. among non-elderly adults during the last decade, according to a study by Ramin Mojtabai, MD, PhD, of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. At the same time, the study found the prevalence of disability attributed to other chronic conditions decreased, while the prevalence of significant mental distress remained unchanged. "These findings highlight the need for improved access to mental health services in our communities and for better integration of these services with primary care delivery," said Mojtabai, an associate professor in the Bloomberg School's Department of Mental Health. "While the trend in self-reported mental health disability is clear, the causes of this trend are not well understood." For the study, Mojtabai reviewed data from the U.S. He found that the prevalence of self-reported mental health disability ...

Positive Mental Health Changes Found After Smoking Cessation. There are plenty of health reasons to consider stopping smoking but still it remains a regular habit for many people. Nicotine found in tobacco is an addictive substance that can cause physical symptoms when you first quit and can make quitting more challenging. Fortunately, these withdrawal symptoms fade over time and there are products to help you take the edge off during this time. Many also associate smoking with a stress or anxiety reducer, which makes the idea of quitting stressful and anxiety-filled. Researchers from the United Kingdom, wanted to determine the impact of smoking on mental health factors such as depression or anxiety. The review, published in the British Medical Journal, found that smoking cessation was associated with better mental health sc...

NPR ran a story recently entitled “Don’t Count on Travel Insurance to Cover Mental Health.” The article told the story of a couple whose travel plans needed to be changed, based on recommendations by their adult son’s doctors that he not be left alone as he began a new treatment regimen for mental health problems. But does this family’s story really mean that travel insurance will never cover mental health issues. 1 Travel insurance may cover mental health in the event of hospitalization. According to our experts, some travel insurance providers treat hospitalization for mental health reasons similarly to hospitalization for any other medical problem. If a traveler who’s insured by one of those companies has to cancel his plans because he, or a traveling companion, is hospitalized for mental health care, the same trip cancellation benefits would apply as if he had been in an accident or needed surgery. 2 Pre-Existing Conditions Waivers may apply to mental health.

It is important to know the benefits of prescribed medications, as well as their potential side effects, and to talk to your doctor about any concerns that you may have. Medications only treat symptoms, so if you stop taking them, your symptoms can return. Medications often help the most when they're part of an overall treatment program. Medications differ widely in how quickly they take effect. After a short time on the medication, it's important to share with your doctor or therapist how you are doing with the treatment. It's very important that your providers have all your recent information so they can figure out how best to support your recovery. Even if you don't want help with the decision, people close to you should know that you haven't been feeling well.

Too little mental health care for U.S. The Salt Lake Tribune. Too little mental health care for U.S. boomers Report Institute of Medicine says there is a shortage of trained doctors and nurses. Washington Getting older doesn't just mean a risk for physical ailments like heart disease and bum knees: A new report finds as many as 1 in 5 seniors has a mental health or substance abuse problem. And as the population rapidly ages over the next two decades, millions of baby boomers may have a hard time finding care and services for mental health problems such as depression because the nation is woefully lacking in doctors, nurses and other health workers trained for their special needs, the Institute of Medicine said Tuesday. "The burden of mental illness and substance abuse disorders in older adults in the United States borders on a crisis," wrote Dan Blazer of Duke University, who chaired the Institute of Medicine panel that investigated the issue. "Yet this crisis is largely hidden from the public and many of tho...

Thursday, 14 November 2013 At a local meeting on Saturday, Major Andy Shields from Macon County Sheriff Department spoke regarding the man hours spent on people with severe mental health issues. Since early 2000, funding in all states for mental health facilities has diminished, and there has been a focus to take some severe patients from secure facilities and integrate them into society. Independence Training ensued of some higher functioning patients, with an end goal of rehabilitation and part-time work. It sadly succeeded for a very few, and for several others had tragic consequences.

One of the more startling statistics in the report, which analyzed prescription claims data from 2.5 million insured Americans from 2001 to 2010, is that one in four women is dispensed medication for a mental health condition, compared to just 15 percent of men. Antidepressant use especially is high among women, up 29 percent since 2001, the report showed, and anti-anxiety meds are used by women at almost twice the rate seen among men. In 2010, 11 percent of middle-aged women were on an anti-anxiety medication, while only 5.7 percent of men that age were. There s also a gender shift when it comes to the use of drugs for ADHD in adulthood: although the disorder is thought to afflict primarily young boys, slightly more women use ADHD medications as adults than men.

*  Infants' meaning-making and the development of mental health problems.
Infants meaning-making and the development of mental health problems. BioMedSearch. Document Detail. Infants' meaning-making and the development of mental health problems. MedLine Citation:. We argue that infant meaning-making processes are a central mechanism governing both typical and pathological outcomes. Infants, as open dynamic systems, must constantly garner information to increase their complexity and coherence. We focus on the operation of the infant-adult communication system, a dyadic, mutually regulated system that scaffolds infants' engagement with the world of people, things, and themselves, and consequently their meaning-making. We argue that infant mental health problems emerge when the meanings infants make in the moment, which increase their complexity and coherence and may be adaptive in the short run, selectively limit their subsequent engagement with the world and, in turn, the growth of their state of consciousness in the long run. When chronic and iterative, these altered meanings can i...

Health. Health is a state of physical, mental and social well-being. It involves more than just the absence of disease or infirmity. This definition was ratified during the first World Health Assembly and has not been modified since 1948. Physical health :Â Physical fitness is good bodily health, and is the result of regular exercise, proper diet and nutrition, and proper rest for physical recovery. A strong indicator of the health of populations is height, which is generally increased by improving nutrition and health care, and is also influenced by the standard of living and quality of life. Genetics is also a major factor in people’s height. The study of human growth, its regulators, and its implications is known as Auxology. Mental healthMental health refers to a human individual’s emotional and psychological well-being.

Doctor after doctor, seeing that she had a history of anxiety, dismissed her symptoms as being all in her head. This was Danielle's first experience with having her physical symptoms written off because she had once had treatment for a mental health issue. Notice that when doctors wrote off her excruciating pain, they backed Danielle into a corner: She had no choice but to ask for pain medicine, creating a medical history full of prescriptions for narcotics. Seeing her history of anxiety and prescriptions for narcotics, they said things like, "You should up the dose of your anti-anxiety medicine.". After many years, Danielle has finally found several doctors who believe her...

(1/2544) The impact of genetic counselling on risk perception and mental health in women with a family history of breast cancer.

The present study investigated: (1) perception of genetic risk and, (2) the psychological effects of genetic counselling in women with a family history of breast cancer. Using a prospective design, with assessment pre- and post-genetic counselling at clinics and by postal follow-up at 1, 6 and 12 months, attenders at four South London genetic clinics were assessed. Participants included 282 women with a family history of breast cancer. Outcome was measured in terms of mental health, cancer-specific distress and risk perception. High levels of cancer-specific distress were found pre-genetic counselling, with 28% of participants reporting that they worried about breast cancer 'frequently or constantly' and 18% that worry about breast cancer was 'a severe or definite problem'. Following genetic counselling, levels of cancer-specific distress were unchanged. General mental health remained unchanged over time (33% psychiatric cases detected pre-genetic counselling, 27% at 12 months after genetic counselling). Prior to their genetics consultation, participants showed poor knowledge of their lifetime risk of breast cancer since there was no association between their perceived lifetime risk (when they were asked to express this as a 1 in x odds ratio) and their actual risk, when the latter was calculated by the geneticist at the clinic using the CASH model. In contrast, women were more accurate about their risk of breast cancer pre-genetic counselling when this was assessed in broad categorical terms (i.e. very much lower/very much higher than the average woman) with a significant association between this rating and the subsequently calculated CASH risk figure (P = 0.001). Genetic counselling produced a modest shift in the accuracy of perceived lifetime risk, expressed as an odds ratio, which was maintained at 12 months' follow-up. A significant minority failed to benefit from genetic counselling; 77 women continued to over-estimate their risk and maintain high levels of cancer-related worry. Most clinic attenders were inaccurate in their estimates of the population risk of breast cancer with only 24% able to give the correct figure prior to genetic counselling and 36% over-estimating this risk. There was some improvement following genetic counselling with 62% able to give the correct figure, but this information was poorly retained and this figure had dropped to 34% by the 1-year follow-up. The study showed that women attending for genetic counselling are worried about breast cancer, with 34% indicating that they had initiated the referral to the genetic clinic themselves. This anxiety is not alleviated by genetic counselling, although women reported that it was less of a problem at follow-up. Women who continue to over-estimate their risk and worry about breast cancer are likely to go on seeking unnecessary screening if they are not reassured.  (+info)

(2/2544) Sexual harassment and generalized workplace abuse among university employees: prevalence and mental health correlates.

OBJECTIVES: This study hypothesized that interpersonal workplace stressors involving sexual harassment and generalized workplace abuse are highly prevalent and significantly linked with mental health outcomes including symptomatic distress, the use and abuse of alcohol, and other drug use. METHODS: Employees in 4 university occupational groups (faculty, student, clerical, and service workers; n = 2492) were surveyed by means of a mailed self-report instrument. Cross-tabular and ordinary least squares and logistic regression analyses examined the prevalence of harassment and abuse and their association with mental health status. RESULTS: The data show high rates of harassment and abuse. Among faculty, females were subjected to higher rates; among clerical and service workers, males were subjected to higher rates. Male and female clerical and service workers experienced higher levels of particularly severe mistreatment. Generalized abuse was more prevalent than harassment for all groups. Both harassment and abuse were significantly linked to most mental health outcomes for men and women. CONCLUSIONS: Interpersonally abusive workplace dynamics constitute a significant public health problem that merits increased intervention and prevention strategies.  (+info)

(3/2544) Psychological factors associated with recurrent vaginal candidiasis: a preliminary study.

OBJECTIVE: To identify psychological factors associated with chronic recurrent vaginal candidiasis. DESIGN: A cross sectional exploratory study of women with chronic, recurrent vaginal candidiasis. PATIENTS: 28 women found culture positive and treated for vaginal candidiasis by a clinic physician at least twice within the past 6 months. All women reported that they had experienced vaginal thrush six or more times within 1 year. A comparison group comprised 16 women with no history of recurrent vaginal candidiasis, of similar age range, and recruited from a women's family planning service. METHODS: Both groups were compared on demographic criteria, sexual health histories, mental health, and psychological health characteristics. A purpose designed structured interview was administered alongside a battery of standardised psychometric instruments measuring mood, satisfaction with life, self esteem, and perceived stress. RESULTS: The two groups showed considerable similarities, with no significant differences in demographic characteristics and most sexual health issues. However, women with recurrent vaginal candidiasis were significantly more likely to suffer clinical depression, to be less satisfied with life, to have poorer self esteem, and to perceive their lives as more stressful. Additionally, women with recurrent vaginal candidiasis reported that their candidiasis seriously interfered with their sexual and emotional relationships. CONCLUSIONS: Overall, this study identified many areas of psychological morbidity associated with chronic vaginal candidiasis, and indicates that development of appropriate psychological treatment initiatives in this area is long overdue.  (+info)

(4/2544) Income group differences in relationships among survey measures of physical and mental health.

The present research tested the hypothesis that the experience of health is hierarchically organized such that gratification of physical health needs must precede gratification of mental health needs. It was reasoned that because the nondisadvantaged possess greater resources for the gratification of health needs in general, symptoms of mental illness would be more salient for this group and thus better able to explain variance in both mental and physical illness. On the other hand, it was reasoned that symptoms of physical illness would be more salient and thus better able to explain variance in both mental and physical illness for the disadvantaged. Results of the study indicate income group differences in patterns of relationships among health variables, supporting the hypothesis and suggesting important differences in the validity of health measures across income groups. The results are related to previous findings in medical sociology, and suggestions for future research are made.  (+info)

(5/2544) Epidemiology of job stress and health in Japan: review of current evidence and future direction.

With the increasing concern about job stress, there is a growing body of literature addressing psychosocial job stress and its adverse effects on health in Japan. This paper reviews research findings over the past 15 years concerning the assessment of job stress, the relationship of job stress to mental and physical health, and the effects of worksite stress reduction activities in Japan. Although studies were conducted in the past using ad-hoc job stress questionnaires, well-established job stressor scales have since been translated into Japanese, their psychometric properties tested and these scales extensively used in recent epidemiologic studies. While the impact of overtime and quantitative job overload on mental health seems moderate, job control, skill use and worksite support, as well as qualitative job demands, had greater effects on psychological distress and drinking problems in cross-sectional and prospective studies. These job stressors also indicated a strong association with psychiatric disorders, including major depression, even with a prospective study design. Long working hours were associated with a higher risk of myocardial infarction, diabetes mellitus and hypertension. There is evidence that the job demands-control model, as well as the use of new technology at work, is associated with higher levels of blood pressure and serum lipids among Japanese working populations. Fibrinolytic activity, blood glucose levels, immune functions and medical consultation rates were also affected by job stressors. It is further suggested that Japanese workers tend to suppress expression of positive feelings, which results in apparently higher psychological distress and lower job satisfaction among Japanese workers compared with workers in the U.S. Future epidemiologic studies in Japan should focus more on a prospective study design, theoretical models of job stress, job stress among women, and cultural difference and well-designed intervention studies of various types of worksite stress reduction.  (+info)

(6/2544) Job stressor-mental health associations in a sample of Japanese working adults: artifacts of positive and negative questions?

To examine whether positive and negative components of mental health were differently related to job stressors and life events, correlational analyses were conducted using data for the GHQ-12 and some scales of the NIOSH Generic Job Stress Questionnaire collected from 765 workers in Japan. Six positive items and six negative items of the GHQ-12 were summed up for positive and negative components of mental health (GHQ-POS, GHQ-NEG). The GHQ-POS was significantly correlated with only positively-oriented job stressors. The GHQ-NEG was significantly correlated with only negatively-oriented job stressors. Most correlations were significantly different between GHQ-POS and GHQ-NEG. This correlation pattern resulted in smaller, but significant, correlations between job stressors and the GHQ-12. These results may reflect "measuring similarity" due to item-wording. Detailed inspection suggested that GHQ-POS and GHQ-NEG, as well as positively- and negatively-oriented job stressors, were not attributable only to positive affectively or negative affectivity, respectively. Work-related events showed higher correlations with all mental health variables than their job stressors' counterparts. For females, mental health variables were seldom correlated with job stressors, but significantly correlated with life events. These results might indicate the superiority of "event-type stress measure" as compared to perceived rating scale in assessing job stressors. Further direction was discussed.  (+info)

(7/2544) Assessment of the SF-36 version 2 in the United Kingdom.

SETTING: The sample was drawn from General Practitioner Records held by the Health Authorities for Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, and Oxfordshire. SAMPLE: The questionnaire was sent to 13,800 randomly selected subjects between the ages of 18-64 inclusive. OUTCOME MEASURES: Scores for the eight dimensions of the UK SF36-II and the PCS and MCS summary scores. RESULTS: The survey achieved a response rate of 64.4% (n = 8889). Internal consistency of the different dimensions of the questionnaire were found to be high. Normative data for the SF-36 are reported, broken down by age and sex, and social class. Factor analysis of the eight domains produced a two factor solution and provided weights for the UK SF36-II. CONCLUSION: The SF36-II domains were shown to have improved reliability over the previous version of the UK SF36. Furthermore, enhancements to wording and response categories reduces the extent of floor and ceiling effects in the role performance dimensions. These advances are likely to lead to better precision as well as greater responsiveness in longitudinal studies.  (+info)

(8/2544) Bullying behaviour and psychosocial health among school students in New South Wales, Australia: cross sectional survey.

OBJECTIVES: To examine the prevalence of bullying behaviours in schoolchildren and the association of bullying with psychological and psychosomatic health. DESIGN: Cross sectional survey. SETTING: Government and non-government schools in New South Wales, Australia. PARTICIPANTS: 3918 schoolchildren attending year 6 (mean age 11.88 years), year 8 (13.96), and year 10 (15.97) classes from 115 schools. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Self reported bullying behaviours and psychological and psychosomatic symptoms. RESULTS: Almost a quarter of students (23.7%) bullied other students, 12.7% were bullied, 21.5% were both bullied and bullied others on one or more occasions in the last term of school, and 42.4% were neither bullied nor bullied others. More boys than girls reported bullying others and being victims of bullying. Bullying behaviour was associated with increased psychosomatic symptoms. Bullies tended to be unhappy with school; students who were bullied tended to like school and to feel alone. Students who both bullied and were bullied had the greatest number of psychological and psychosomatic symptoms. CONCLUSIONS: Being bullied seems to be widespread in schools in New South Wales and is associated with increased psychosomatic symptoms and poor mental health. Health practitioners evaluating students with common psychological and psychosomatic symptoms should consider bullying and the student's school environment as potential causes.  (+info)


What are the difference between these Mental Health Professionals?


What is the difference between a Mental Health Clinical Social Worker, Mental Health Psychologist, and a Mental Health Physician? I know that schooling is probably different. Do any of them have the ability to prescribe? Also, is there a difference between Behavioral health and Mental health? If so what is it so I know what kind of Dr. I should go see. Thank you!!
----------

A social worker has a master's degree. A psychologist has a doctorate in psychology. A physician who specializes in mental health is a psychiatrist and, in addition to medical school, has several years of specialized training.

The prescribing ability depends on the state. In many cases, however, the social worker or psychologist refers the patient to a psychiatrist for prescriptions, if needed, but does therapy themselves. Social workers usually concentrate on how your problems affect your ability to function in society. (It varies a lot though). Generally they do more short term treatment focused on functioning. They are not usually ones to treat very serious mental illnesses. For more serious problems, a psychologist is more appropriate as they also focus on the mental processes. A psychiatrist is best if it's a chemical disorder or the most serious of mental illnesses, such as severe depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia.

Cant' advise you as to which you should see without knowing what problems you think you have.


What makes something a mental health issue as opposed to a regular health issue that involves the brain?


For instance, epilepsy is not considered a "mental health" problem even though it's something that's happening in the brain. Schizophrenia has to do with brain chemicals, but it's a mental health issue.
----------

Most mental illnesses are considered 'brain' issues as they involve irregularities in the functioning of the brain. Hence, the medications and treatments. It has also been recognized that all these conditions also have accompanying behavioral and emotional components hence they are also mental health issues. 
Epilepsy is not considered by itself a mental illness because it involves misfiring in the brain but by itself does not have a direct emotional or social behavioral effect. Having said that dealing with epilepsy can be stressful and cause damage to the brain and psyche some of which are manifest as mental illness. Many persons live successfully as epileptics w/o dealing with mental illness.


Can mental health nurses work in an emergency department?


I am thinking about doing mental health nursing at university, but I would like to work in an emergency department. Would this be okay or should I just do adult nursing instead? If mental health nurses can work in emergency department, what do they do?

Thank you for any answers.
----------

mental health nurses can work in an emergency department in case there is issues regarding mental health only


What is the licensure requirement for mental health counseling in the state of california?


I am really interested in becoming a Mental Health Counselor but I live the state of California. From my understanding, California is the last state to pass this law for licensure the these type of counselors. I wanted to know what are the requirements besides a masters degree? ex. practium hours, internship, what accrediation does the school has to have in order to be able to sit for licensure, what type of classes are needed, thanks! I truly appreciate it-Jessica
----------

Try calling the Mental Health Association.   I'm sure they would know the answer or at least be able to tell you who to get in touch with. 

  Have you tried stopping by a mental health clinic and speaking to one of their therapists.


How do you clear your mental health records?


Can anyone clear his/her mental health records due to miss diagnosis and racial profiling? 

Can it be cleared like a criminal record?
I am asking this question out of boredom. Please no magical cure all pills thank you.
----------

No.

A misdiagnosis can only be disproved. If you get the proper help and they diagnose you correctly, then that will be a way of disproving the former diagnosis.

I don't know how you're going to prove (or find a doctor willing to back you up) that there was racial profiling involved in your mental health care. I've never heard of such a thing and I'm not sure what the context would be.


How does a mental health professional know what they are talking about?


Hwo can a mental health professional know what they r talking about if they just keep asking questions and ask you to keep talking about your life situations with them.  If they knew some really good advice, wouldn't there be no issues to keep you coming back for their services?
----------

One of the most important functions of mental health is to get you talking about your experiences and bringing what is hidden into the open.  This way you become faced with your problems.  Oftentimes you already know the answer and the mental health professional is purely facilitating this process.  The psychologist may be used as a sounding board.

It is not up to the psychologist to purely give advice.  They may bring existing issues into the open and help you see them from a different perspecitve.  Sometimes we get so caught up in our own experiences that we only see them in black and white.  It is the psychologist's duty to help you see things from a different angle and to help you think out of the box.  A psychologist may give advice, but at the end of the day it is up to you to live your life and make your own decisions.  A professional will empower you to be able to make your own decisions.  Pure advice-giving will just make you dependant on someone else.  It is YOUR journey and not the psychologist's.  They will accompany you on that journey but at the end of the day it is YOURS.

There are positive and negative coping mechanisms and many of us have unhealthy ones which make life more difficult instead of easier.  A mental health professional will help you to identify those negative coping patterns and help you to develop healthy ones.


What are some quality mental health websites?


I have been looking for quality mental health websites that provide good detail and explaination of mental disorders so that I can work on some research.  If I had a copy of the DSMV that would be great, but unfortunately I do not.  Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It's a start...


How come instances of mental health issues are becoming more prevalent?


What is it that is causing a larger number of the population to suffer from numerous mental health issues? Or do you think there was always around the same figures but not enough research or medical advancement at the time to realise?
----------

i think it's always been the same number of people who have been afflicted with mental illness.

it's just that now people are starting to come out from the stigma that for so long doomed them to the dark corners of society.  no longer do people have to suffer in silence for fear of being ostracized...society, at least the educated and informed members of society recognize that the brain is another organ of the body and often it gets sick.

and sickness requires treatment, not being relegated to the darkness to hide in shame.

i have no problem telling people i have biploar disorder, or that i got treatment for it.  i am a walking, shouting poster child for mental health awareness and for the fair treatment of those afflicted with illness.  i hope that by being as outspoken as i am, maybe others will see that there is no shame in it and seek treatment.  i see no difference between mental illness and physical illness - i don't honestly understand how anyone else could.
