Patient readmission and support utilization following anterior temporal lobectomy. (1/814)

The aim of this study was to examine factors precipitating patient readmission, following anterior temporal lobectomy (ATL) for refractory epilepsy. A second aim was to explore the use of hospital outpatient and community support services ('outpatient services') by this patient population. These aims served the more general goal of identifying patients most likely in need of services additional to those routinely provided by our Seizure Surgery Follow-up and Rehabilitation Programme. The medical records of 100 consecutive ATL patients were retrospectively examined for the incidence and diagnoses precipitating acute readmission, and the utilization of additional outpatient services. Twenty-one patients (21%) required readmission post-ATL, totalling 47 readmissions between them. Psychiatric diagnoses were the most prevalent (53%), including anxiety, depression and/or post-ictal psychosis. Epileptological diagnoses were the other main precipitant (28%). Additional outpatient services were predominantly utilized for ongoing psychological support. Of the 21 patients requiring readmission, 10(10%) also needed additional outpatient services. These patients were predominantly female or unemployed, in contrast to male or employed patients who tended to require readmission only. Seventeen patients (17%) were maintained within the community using additional outpatient services only. Characteristics of these patients included disrupted family dynamics, limited social networks, and/or a psychiatric history. These patients were also more frequently beyond the 24-month follow-up period of the programme. A profile of patients most in need of additional support services can be constructed to assist team planning of proactive management strategies for the rehabilitation phase of ATL.  (+info)

Pathways to care for alcohol use disorders. (3/814)

BACKGROUND: The aim of the present study was to examine access to care for people with alcohol use disorders. METHOD: An alcohol screening questionnaire was completed by 444 respondents in a community survey. During a designated week, 1009 patients presenting in primary care were assessed by their doctor and 773 of these completed the same questionnaire. Over a six month period 223 people with alcohol use disorders were identified using specialist addiction and psychiatric services, of whom 58 were admitted to hospital. One month prevalence rates of alcohol morbidity were determined for people aged between 16 and 64 years at all five levels in the pathways to care model. RESULTS: Around half the people with alcohol morbidity in the community never consulted their general practitioner and of those who did only half had their problem identified. Case recognition was particularly poor for women, young people and Asians. The main filter to people accessing specialist services came at the point of referral from primary care. This was especially marked for young people and for ethnic minorities. CONCLUSIONS: Strategies are required to improve the identification and treatment of alcohol morbidity in primary care. Deficits in access to specialist services for women, young people and ethnic minorities need to be addressed.  (+info)

Assertive community treatment for people with severe mental illness: the effect on hospital use and costs. (4/814)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of the Program for Assertive Community Treatment (PACT) model on psychiatric inpatient service use in a population of non-emergency psychiatric patients with severe chronic mental illness, and to test for variations in this effect with program staffing levels and patient characteristics such as race and age. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Data are taken from a randomized trial of PACT in Charleston, South Carolina for 144 patients recruited from August 1989 through July 1991. STUDY DESIGN: Subjects were randomly assigned either to one of two PACT programs or to usual care at a local mental health center. Effects on hospital use were measured over an 18-month follow-up period via multiple regression analysis. DATA COLLECTION METHODS: Data were obtained from Medicaid claims, chart reviews, subject, case manager, and family interviews; searches of the computerized patient and financial databases of the South Carolina Department of Mental Health and relevant hospitals; and searches of the hard copy and computerized financial databases of the two major local hospitals providing inpatient psychiatric care. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: PACT participants were about 40 percent less likely to be hospitalized during the follow-up period. The effect was stronger for older patients. Lower PACT client/staff ratios also reduced the risk of hospitalization. No evidence of differential race effects was found. Given some hospital use, PACT did not influence the number of days of use. CONCLUSIONS: Controlling for other covariates, PACT significantly reduces hospitalizations but the size of this effect varies with patient and program characteristics. This study shows that previous results on PACT can be applied to non-emergency patients even when the control condition is an up-to-date CMHC office-based case management program.  (+info)

Outcome of long stay psychiatric patients resettled in the community: prospective cohort study. (5/814)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the outcome of a population of long stay psychiatric patients resettled in the community. DESIGN: Prospective study with 5 year follow up. SETTING: Over 140 residential settings in north London. SUBJECTS: 670 long stay patients from two London hospitals (Friern and Claybury) discharged to the community from 1985 to 1993. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Continuity and quality of residential care, readmission to hospital, mortality, crime, and vagrancy. RESULTS: Of the 523 patients who survived the 5 year follow up period, 469 (89.6%) were living in the community by the end of follow up, 310 (59.2%) in their original community placement. A third (210) of all patients were readmitted at least once. Crime and homelessness presented few problems. Standardised mortality ratios for the group were comparable with those reported for similar populations. CONCLUSIONS: When carefully planned and adequately resourced, community care for long stay psychiatric patients is beneficial to most individuals and has minimal detrimental effects on society.  (+info)

Improving staff nutritional practices in community-based group homes: evaluation, training, and management. (6/814)

We evaluated the effectiveness of a staff training and management package on nutritional practices in two community-based group homes serving adults with developmental disabilities. Food storage, menu development, and meal preparation were trained in a multiple baseline format, followed by supervisor feedback. All staff behaviors increased after training and were maintained for up to 1 year. Biological indices reflected collateral improvements in the health of consumers, and surveys of staff and parents established social validity.  (+info)

Quality of care in mental health: the case of schizophrenia. (7/814)

Scientific evidence supporting the efficacy of a range of treatments for persons with schizophrenia set the stage for the recent development of evidence-based quality-of-care indicators for this disorder. On the heels of these quality indicators, research has found that treatment services for many persons with schizophrenia are inadequate. Because most of these patients receive their care under public auspices (Medicaid, Medicare, and Veterans Affairs), public health policy can exert considerable influence to address these quality-of-care problems. Publicly funded managed care could promote evidence-based care. It also could coordinate specialty and primary care to improve early detection and general medical care for persons with schizophrenia.  (+info)

Managed behavioral health care: a Medicaid carve-out for youth. (8/814)

This DataWatch assesses the impact of a public sector-managed Medicaid mental health carve-out pilot for North Carolina youth. Access to, volume of, and costs of mental health/substance abuse services are reported. We compared a pilot managed care program, with an incentive to shift hospital use and costs to community-based services, with usual fee-for-service Medicaid. Aggregate data from Medicaid claims for youth (from birth to age seventeen) statewide are reported for five years. We found dramatic reductions in use of inpatient care, with a shift to intensive outpatient services, and less growth in mental health costs. These findings demonstrate that public sector-managed care can be viable and more efficient than a fee-for-service model.  (+info)

Persons with schizophrenia and related disorders may be particularly sensitive to a number of determinants of service use, including those related with illness, socio-demographic characteristics and organizational factors. The objective of this study is to identify factors associated with outpatient contacts at community mental health services of patients with schizophrenia or related disorders. This cross-sectional study analyzed 1097 patients. The main outcome measure was the total number of outpatient consultations during one year. Independent variables were related to socio-demographic, clinical and use of service factors. Data were collected from clinical records. The multilevel linear regression model explained 46.35% of the variance. Patients with significantly more contacts with ambulatory services were not working and were receiving welfare benefits (p = 0.02), had no formal education (p = 0.02), had a global level of severity of two or three (four being the most severe) (p < 0.001), with one

Aims and method To compare the cost and quality of a memory-clinic-based service (MCS) with a traditional community mental health team (CMHT) service. Using a retrospective case-note review, we studied two groups, each with 33 participants. Consecutive referrals for diagnostic memory assessments over 4 months were evaluated. Participants were evaluated for up to 6 months.. Results The MCS was less costly than the CMHT service but the difference was not statistically significant (mean cost for MCS was £742, mean cost for CMHT service was £807). The MCS offered more multidisciplinary and comprehensive care, including: pre- and post-diagnostic counselling, more systematic screening of blood for reversible causes of dementia, more use of structured assessment instruments in patients/carers, signposting to the third sector as well as more consistent copying of letters to patients/carers.. Clinical implications An MCS service offered more comprehensive and multidisciplinary service at no extra ...

Purpose: Staff well-being is considered to be a potential problem within mental health occupations, and its variability is in need of investigation. Our starting point is to assess the role of demands, control and supportive relationships that are at the core of Karaseks model. The study aims to assess the relationship amongst mental health workers of job demands, control and support (from peers and superiors) with multiple measures of well-being. Method: Data were obtained through a self-completion questionnaire from mental health staff in 100 inpatient wards, 18 crisis resolution/home treatment teams and 18 community mental health teams. The data was analysed using multilevel regression analysis. Results: Job demands (negatively), control (positively) and supportive relationships (positively) are each uniquely associated with the five measures of well-being included in the study: namely intrinsic satisfaction, anxiety, depression, emotional exhaustion and personal accomplishment. Non-linear ...

Background. People with severe mental illnesses such as schizophrenia are three times more likely to smoke than the wider population, contributing to widening health inequalities. Smoking remains the largest modifiable risk factor for this health inequality, but people with severe mental illness have not historically engaged with smoking cessation services. We aimed to test the effectiveness of a combined behavioural and pharmacological smoking cessation intervention targeted specifically at people with severe mental illness.. Methods. In the smoking cessation intervention for severe mental illness (SCIMITAR+) trial, a pragmatic, randomised controlled study, we recruited heavy smokers with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia from 16 primary care and 21 community-based mental health sites in the UK. Participants were eligible if they were aged 18 years or older, and smoked at least five cigarettes per day. Exclusion criteria included substantial comorbid drug or alcohol problems and people who ...
The last 50 years has witnessed a radical change in the care of the severely mentally ill as asylums have closed and care has moved to the community. Two developments have marked this transition. The first is the development of multidisciplinary community mental health teams (CMHTs). The second is an increasing reliance on outreach to engage and support the most seriously ill patients. This book is a guide for those, whatever their professional background, who work in CMHTs. It focuses on the practicalities of the job-what they all need to know, whether coming to it from social work, nursing, or psychology. It is based on our decade of working together in an assertive outreach team and our backgrounds in nursing and psychiatry in a range of CMHTs.The book is in three parts. The first addresses the underlying principles of the practice and its variations. It explores the themes that are common to all outreach work and the specific thinking and practice characterizing different teams and settings. ...
In this study, we compared the effect of an ACT program versus that of a case-management approach on the psychiatric symptoms, global functioning, life satisfaction, and recovery-promoting relationships of patients at the Suwon Mental Health Center.. We hypothesized that patients in the ACT group would exhibit greater psychiatric symptom improvement as shown by BPRS scores than the control group receiving case management. The ACT group showed significant reductions in psychiatric symptoms, but these reductions were not significantly greater than those seen in the control group between baseline and the 15-month follow-up. In a previous study, patients who underwent the ACT program showed no significant change in hospitalization period or in symptoms [8]. Another study revealed that the ACT program for disabled patients with mental illness could significantly improve psychiatric symptoms [22]. An ACT program in Japan showed improvement of depressive symptoms and reduction of hospitalization period ...
Aims and method: A questionnaire survey of all general practices in one health authority plus an assessment of a random sample of referrals were used to evaluate the impact of counsellors in primary care on referrals to mental health services. Results: A total of 91.1% of practices responded to the survey. A counsellor was present in 20.3% of these practices. A random sample of 180 referrals to community mental health teams was reviewed. There was a significantly higher referral rate from practices that employed a counsellor (P=0.003). There was no evidence of a difference in rates of caseness of referrals between practices that employed a counsellor and those that did not. Clinical implications: Practices employing counsellors had significantly higher referral rates to mental health services, with no difference in the level of caseness between the two groups of referrals.
Much is now known about what works in mental health promotion, prevention, care and treatment. The challenge is now to implement this knowledge. Services and practice do not always reflect the knowledge of what works in mental health care and treatment. Many countries have limited community-based mental health services and little specialist help for young or elderly people.. Many people in large mental institutions are subject to neglect and abuse of human rights, reflected in high mortality rates. Stigma and prejudice are widespread and affect every aspect of mental health, including whether people seek and receive help.. ...

Case Notes. Practitioners: Declan Henry, social worker, community mental health team and Rev Malcolm Gerdes-Hansen, mentor and advocate.. Field: Mental health.. Location: Rochester, Kent.. Client: Ian Parker, 58, has had a diagnosis of bipolar affective disorder (previously called "manic depression") for 40 years, although for the first 20 he was incorrectly diagnosed with schizophrenia. He was divorced in 1999 and has two daughters in their twenties. Case History: Parker has a history of hospital admissions, which have mostly been due to elated highs - "mania" - with few relating to depression. He had been well for more than five years and was living successfully in the community in supported accommodation. In April 2006, Declan Henry was appointed as social worker to Parker. "Ian appeared well - was likeable and intellectually interesting," he says. However, by June it was apparent that something had started to go wrong. Unbeknown to others, Parker had started adjusting his medication, which ...
INTRODUCTION: Providing comprehensive services for about 400 patients in the South Herefordshire area, the community mental health team manages cases of varying severity and complexity, ranging from Schizophrenia, to neuroses and disorders of adult personality. Antipsychotic medication remains a mainstay of treatment and management for patients under the team case load; hence a need exists for a detailed look into the prescription patterns of such medications. AIM: The aim of this study was to look into the prescribing patterns of antipsychotics for a sample of 50 patients in the South Herefordshire community team during the year of 2016 (from Jan 2016 to Dec 2016), as well as investigate whether these antipsychotics were licensed to be used for the corresponding diagnoses of these patients ...

This paper aims to identify which lessons learned from the evidence and the experiences accruing from the transformation in mental health services in recent decades may have relevance for the future development of healthcare for people with long-term physical conditions. First, nine principles are discussed which we first identified to guide mental health service organisation, and all of which can be potentially applied to long term care as well (autonomy, continuity, effectiveness, accessibility, comprehensiveness, equity, accountability, co-ordination, and efficiency). Second, we have outlined innovative operational aspects of service user participation, many of which were first initiated and consolidated in the mental health field, and some of which are now also being implemented in long term care (including case management, and crisis plans). We conclude that long term conditions, whether mental or physical, deserve a long-term commitment from the relevant health services, and indeed where
Some people think that there is a critical period - just after people become ill with psychosis - in which the potential exists to intervene and improve the long-term course of the illness. However, there is no evidence that indicates how long early interventions need to be active to prevent a relapse or how long the effects last. A Danish study of 547 patients with first-episode psychosis compared a two-year, intensive, early-intervention treatment made up of assertive community treatment, family involvement and social-skills training to standard treatment. There was an improvement in the early-intervention group after two years but after five years there was no difference between the two group as far as symptoms were concerned. But fewer of the early-intervention group were living in sheltered housing and they had had fewer days in hospital over the 5-year period ...
This Realistic Evaluation was based on retrospective interviews with practitioners and managers involved in developing services within both intervention and control arms of the trial. The interview process and subsequent analysis used the experience of these stakeholders as a lens to reveal and define the key functions of the intervention, and to understand the interactions between the pre-planned components and the local context.. A total of 31 individual and group interviews were completed to create 12 case studies. Sampling was purposeful: nine PHCT-CMHT pairs from the intervention practices, with a range of reported improvements, and three, which had achieved significant service improvements, from the control arm. Respondents included 21 GPs, 8 community mental health workers, 7 practice managers, 4 mental health managers, 3 practice nurses, 2 psychiatrists, a practice counsellor and a facilitator. The participants were sent information about the aims of the study prior to interviews, which ...
Going to stop for a moment and interject: DONT DO THIS WITHOUT YOUR DOCTORS DIRECTION. A lot of things go into whether home challenges are a good idea for your child: how serious the allergen typically is, how far the hospital, how experienced the parents are with recognizing reactions.

In recent decades the community mental health movement has achieved a dramatic reduction in the census of state and county mental hospitals in the United States, and hundreds of federally-funded community mental health centers have been established nationwide. At the same time, national controversy has arisen in response to what in places has seemed the haphazard process of implementing "deinstitutionalization" and the fate of many chronically mentally ill persons who are without needed social services and psychological care. Despite the widespread attention that this contemporary program has received, theoretical analysis of the complex social, scientific, intellectual, and political origins of Americas community mental health policy remains deficient. This article examines the background and development of the Community Mental Health Centers Act of 1963, tracing how an important shift in national policy toward the mentally ill grew out of changing perceptions-among policymakers, professional ...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To determine current practice choices made by nurses when administering an intramuscular injection (IMI) and practice changes that have occurred since 2006. BACKGROUND: The relationship of metabolic syndrome linked to atypical antipsychotic use has raised concerns around the effective delivery of depot medication. Since 2000, there has been increasing debate on defining what is best practice when administering IMIs, particularly in areas such as site selection, needle size and technique. DESIGN: Two cross sectional studies across two time frames: 2006 and 2012 with registered mental health nurses to describe intramuscular injecting practice. METHODS: A questionnaire related to intramuscular injecting practice originally administered in 2006 was repeated in 2012 across seven inpatient and community mental health services in Western Australia. RESULTS Eight significant practice changes were recorded and they related to needle size, site selection and Z tracking. The use of the ...

7. Defendant cites the Departments Declaratory Ruling in Howard Center for Human Services, Inc. v. Commerce and Industry Insurance Co. and AIG (undated opinion) as establishing a precedent against finding statutory employer status in situations similar to the current claim. In Howard Center, the Department concluded that a community mental health center was not the statutory employer of the developmental home providers with whom it arranged placements for developmentally disabled adults. Upon careful reading of the Commissioners Ruling, I find that the facts at play in the current claim differ significantly from those underlying the Howard Center ruling. To be sure, the community mental health center under scrutiny in that ruling took an interest in ensuring that the adults it placed were appropriately cared for at home. Beyond addressing basic safety issues, however, it did not dictate the home environment. Nor did it supervise the home providers directly or impose rigorous requirements as to ...

PURPOSE: The Program for Assertive Community Treatment is a multidisciplinary team which utilizes the strengths of individual team members in assigning tasks, with the philosophy that staff members, regardless of qualifications are somewhat interchangeable around team task fulfillment. The Psychiatric Nurse is responsible for conducting psychiatric assessments; assessing physical health needs; making appropriate referrals to community physicians; providing management and administration of medication in conjunction with the psychiatrist; providing a range of treatment, rehabilitation, and support services; and sharing shift management responsibility with other staff. It is an expectation that the PACT Team Psychiatric Nurse will provide most services in community-based settings. RESPONSIBILITIES AND DUTIES: May be asked to provide treatment coordination services for an assigned group of clients, including coordinating and monitoring the activities of the individual treatment team (ITT).

Crisis resolution and home treatment (CRHT) is one of the more recent modes of delivering acute mental health care in the community. The objective of the study was to describe the standardizations and variations in the CRHT teams in Norway in order to gain knowledge regarding the structures and processes of CRHT teams. A longitudinal survey of five CRHT teams in Norway was carried out for a period of 18 months with two sets of questionnaires-one for CRHT team profiles for a bi-yearly survey and the other for services and practices of CRHT teams for a monthly survey. The five CRHT teams were configured by a set of common basic characteristics in their operations, while at the same time were variant in several areas of the teams structures and processes. Significant differences among the teams were evident in terms of the structural aspects such as service locality, staffing and team make-up, caseload, service hours, and travel time, and the process aspects such as the number of referrals received,

Findings of excess cardiometabolic morbidity and mortality in persons with severe mental illness (SMI) have led to a growing interest by Community Mental Health Centers (CMHCs) in improving the medical care of the populations they treat. However, these organizations face a number of financial and organizational barriers to implementing and sustaining such programs. In previous and ongoing work, the study team has documented the promise of team-based models in improving health and health care in this population. This study will test a novel approach for improving mental health consumers based on a partnership model between a CMHC and a Community Health Center (CHC). This partnership will capitalize on collocation of services, the primary care expertise of the CHC, and favorable reimbursement conditions, to develop a program that is both clinically robust and financially and organizationally sustainable A total of 300 CMHC clients with a severe mental illness and one or more active cardiometabolic ...
As a non-clinician sociologist I am not licensed to provide direct clinical care, but I have had a significant impact on clinical care provision and planning at the CMHC and at additional Community Service Network (CSN) agencies. From 1993-2000 I was Project Director of CMHCs mental health outreach team to people who are homeless. The team integrated street-based clinical care with vocational, housing, and medical care from local social service agency partners. I was Principal Investigator of the 2000-2002 DMHAS-funded statewide Peer Engagement Specialist Study for engaging persons at risk of violence against self or others into treatment (with the CMHC Assertive Community Treatment Team as one of four study sites). In this capacity I also coordinated training for Peer Specialists prior to their deployment. Building on my citizenship research and practice, I am a leader in the new field of research and training on "forensic peer support" for persons with mental illness and criminal charges. In ...
We investigated whether the quality of the therapeutic relationship (TR) between patient and clinician predicts rehospitalization in patients in assertive outreach treatment. Analyses were conducted on 332 established (equal to in care for | or =3 months) and 150 new (equal to in care for |3 months) patients with severe mental illness sampled from 24 assertive outreach teams in London, England. TR was assessed at baseline using the clinician version of the Helping Alliance Scale. Rehospitalization was assessed over a 9-month follow-up period. Controlling for other predictors, a more positive TR was found to predict fewer hospitalizations in new patients but not in established ones.

Sally was a long time nurse practitioner for a large, rural community mental health center. She worked for the Center her entire career over 20 years. Her performance evaluations were uniformly glowing. Her supervisors described her as a "self starter" who frequently did more than was asked of her. She was responsible for directing the Centers in patient crisis stabilization unit. Her co-workers liked and respected her and she had formed many long friendships with them. The Centers management had changed during the last 3 years of her tenure following the CEOs departure to different employment. Unfortunately Sally became ill with leukemia at about the ...

Individuals with mild intellectual disabilities (MID) or borderline intellectual functioning (BIF) and mental health problems or challenging behavior are difficult to reach by mainstream healthcare facilities and support organizations and frequently avoid the care they need. To improve the care for this client group in the Netherlands, the (Flexible) Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model - originally developed for people with severe mental illness - was adapted and implemented by five organizations specialized in the care for people with MID/BIF and mental health problems or challenging behavior. After an introduction of the original ACT model and a description of the international state of the art of ACT for people with (M)ID/BIF, this paper describes the (Flexible) ACT-MID/BIF model as developed and implemented in the Netherlands. Professionals and clients experiences with this new type of care are reported as well. Implications for clinical practice, policy and research are discussed ...

This course involves a careful examination of the etiology (biological, psychological, and social), clinical diagnosis, and treatment of severe and persistent mental illness (i.e., schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, severe character pathology, dual diagnosis) in a community mental health setting. A comprehensive, integrative, and contemporary theoretical framework through which to understand and treat severe and persistent mental illness across the lifespan will be introduced. Students will become adept at differential diagnosis, and the application of effective, evidenced-based treatments found in community mental health settings. Included will be consideration of issues related to the early onset of psychosis; the inclusion of family members in treatment; and the application of recovery and wellness principles in the treatment of severe mental illness.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) - GAD is characterized by persistent, excessive and unrealistic worry about everyday things. An individual with GAD experiences chronic and excessive worry about health, family, money or work issues. Physical symptoms of GAD may include muscle tension, fatigue, restlessness, difficulty sleeping and edginess. The individuals ability to do his job, go to school or enjoy activities is severely compromised. Approximately 6.8 million American adults have GAD in a given year.. Panic Disorder - Individuals with panic disorder experience spontaneous panic attacks. During a panic attack an individual suffers from an abrupt onset of intense fear that reaches its peak within a few minutes. Physical symptoms of a panic attack mimic those of illnesses such as heart disease, thyroid problems, and breathing disorders. Individuals experiencing panic attacks may make repeated trips to their doctors office or the emergency room. Approximately 6 million American adults have ...
Individuals living with mental illness are at far greater risk of arrest than the general population. "Building Alliances between the Mental Health and Criminal Justice Systems to Prevent Unnecessary Arrests," a report commissioned by NAMI Mass and the Association for Behavioral Health (ABH), illustrates the high prevalence of adults and children who are arrested and incarcerated as a result of behaviors that reflect symptoms of their mental illness rather than criminal behavior. Prisons and jails have become de-facto holding areas for people with mental illness, resulting in a wide range of debilitating consequences in individuals lives. There is an urgent need to develop and expand a continuum of responsive community-based mental health services as an alternative to arrest and detention.. A number of police departments have already developed training initiatives or created relationships with local mental health providers in order to better serve their communities, in many cases with support ...
Our second and third hypotheses related to predictors for 12-month mental health service utilisation in patients with depressive symptoms. We hypothesised that a positive intention to seek help from a healthcare professional and severity of depression could predict subsequent 12-month mental health service use. From our findings, however, a positive intention to seek help from a mental health professional and a higher severity of depression had no effect on subsequent mental health service use. Using Ajzens theory of planned behaviour,6 an individuals behaviour may be influenced by their own personal beliefs (patients own attitudes), subjective norms (the social norms) and control beliefs (perceived practical barriers).6 ,21 In our study population, it appears that the patients intentions regarding help-seeking was an insignificant contributor to subsequent mental health service utilisation. Conversely, identification of depression by a doctor was a very strong predictor for subsequent ...
If approved, the settlement will provide those individuals with mental illness residing in twenty-three New York City adult homes the option of transferring to community-based supported housing. Those opting for the transfers would have access to flexible support services and community-based mental health care suited to their individual needs. According to the settlement, approximately 4000 individuals would be eligible for these transfers. The State would initially provide funding for 950 such housing units scattered throughout the Bronx and Staten Island. 1050 more units would be located in and funded by Queens County and Kings County. Additional units would be made available by the State if the number of individuals opting for transfers were to exceed the initial number of residences provided. Individuals with certain symptoms such as significant dementia and those who would, for instance, present a danger to themselves or others would not be eligible for supported housing.

Objectives. The aims of this research were to generate a set of time-variant measures of continuity of outpatient care using administrative data, and to evaluate the validity of these measures for persons in the community with serious mental illness (SMI) who use public mental health services.. Data Sources. Individuals with SMI were identified using multistage random sampling from shelters, streets, and public mental health clinics in Houston, Texas.. Study Design. The study design was observational, cross-sectional, and retrospective. Based on a review of the literature, five distinct conceptual dimensions of continuity of care were defined: timeliness, intensity, comprehensiveness, stability, and coordination. Repeated measures of continuity were generated for each day of the year. Construct validity was assessed by comparing continuity for housed persons and homeless persons based on the assumption that homelessness is a risk factor for low continuity of outpatient care.. Data Collection. ...

NHS funding for childrens mental health services dropped by more than 6% in real-terms over four years, official figures show.. Data released by NHS England in response to a parliamentary question shows that spending on the services fell by the equivalent of £50m between 2009-10 and 2012-13 once inflation is factored in.. The figures show that in 2009-10, the NHS invested the equivalent of £766m (in 2013-14 prices) in childrens mental health services. By 2012-13, this investment had fallen to the equivalent of £717m, a drop of 6.4%.. A government taskforce is currently reviewing childrens mental health services and ministers have committed to £7m in extra funding for psychiatric beds for children, following evidence of significant strain on inpatient units.. Last year, investigations by Community Care and BBC News revealed how problems accessing beds for young people in crisis had led to acutely unwell children being admitted to adult mental health units or sent hundreds of miles for ...
Services for people with Intellectual Disability (ID) and coexisting mental health problems remain undeveloped; research into their effectiveness has been lacking. Three linked recent studies in the UK have provided evidence on essential service provision from staff, service users and carers. Interfaces with mainstream mental health services were seen as problematic: the area of crisis response was seen as a particular problem. Further services research is needed, focusing on service components rather than whole service configurations. There was not support for establishing more intensive mental health services for people with ID only. The way forward is in developing new ways of co-working with staff in
In 1963, President John F. Kennedy delivered an historic speech on mental illness and retardation. He described sweeping new programs to replace the shabby treatment of the many millions of the mentally disabled in custodial institutions with treatment in community mental health centers. This movement, later referred to as deinstitutionalization, continues to impact mental health care.
Prisoners have high rates of mental illness and the transition from prison to the community is a problematic time for the provision of mental health services and a range of negative outcomes have been identified in this period. A systematic review was conducted to identify interventions for prisoners with diagnosed mental health conditions that targeted this transition period. Fourteen papers from 13 research studies were included. The interventions identified in this review were targeted at different stages of release from prison and their content differed, ranging from Medicaid enrolment schemes to assertive community treatment. It was found that insurance coverage, and contact with mental health and other services can be improved by interventions in this period but the impact on reoffending and reincarceration is complex and interventions may lead to increased return to prison. There is a developing evidence base that suggests targeting this period can improve contact with community mental ...

Greenby Mental Health Center BSHS/462 January 21, 2013 Kimberly Eaton Greenby Mental Health Center The Greenby Community Mental Health (Greenby) has a Center Consultation and Education Department (C and E Department), and it is about to lose its funding, and needs to show the board of directors that its program is indeed useful. The C and E department is useful to many individuals, and helps the other programs gain clients, but the C and E Department needs to show proof to the board that there is a connection by showing evidence of this. C and E department needs to utilize a process evaluation and an outcome evaluation, which will show that the programs it has, does generate clients for the other programs within Greenby. The paper will show one process evaluation measure, and one outcome evaluation measure that will show the efficiency and effectiveness of Greenbys C and E Department. The paper will also discuss challenges and issues of these measures. Process Evaluation According to Lewis, ...

Gaining experience in clinical mental health settings is central to the education of health practitioners. To facilitate the ongoing development of knowledge and practice in this area, we performed a review of the literature on clinical placements in mental health settings. Searches in Academic Search Complete, CINAHL, Medline and PsycINFO databases returned 244 records, of which 36 met the selection criteria for this review. Five additional papers were obtained through scanning the reference lists of those papers included from the initial search. The evidence suggests that clinical placements may have multiple benefits (e.g. improving students skills, knowledge, attitudes towards people with mental health issues and confidence, as well as reducing their fears and anxieties about working in mental health). The location and structure of placements may affect outcomes, with mental health placements in non-mental health settings appearing to have minimal impact on key outcomes. The availability of ...

UnityPoint Health - Des Moines provides outpatient mental health services to those struggling with mental illness and emotional or behavioral problems.
Services for mental disorders offer treatments, support or advocacy to people judged to have mental disorders (mental illnesses). Family practice (general practice) centers in communities are commonly the first line for assessment of mental health conditions, and may prescribe psychiatric drugs and sometimes provide basic counseling or therapy for "common mental disorders". Secondary medical services may include psychiatric hospitals, although since deinstitutionalization these have been restricted in favor of wards within general hospitals, and community mental health services based more locally. Such services may be provided on an inpatient or, more commonly, outpatient basis. They may offer a range of treatments, usually centered around psychiatric drugs, and be provided by a range of mental health professionals, notably psychiatrists and psychiatric and mental health nurses. Non-medical professionals may also be involved, such as clinical psychologists, social workers and various kinds of ...

Purpose of review: Adolescents with mental health problems often require transition of care from child and adolescent to adult mental health services. This review is a synthesis of current research and policy literature on transition to describe the barriers at the interface between child and adolescent mental health services and adult mental health services and outcomes of poor transition.. Recent findings: Adolescence is a risk period for emergence of serious mental disorders. Child and adolescent mental health services and adult mental health services use rigid age cut-offs to delineate service boundaries, creating discontinuities in provision of care. Adolescent mental health services are patchy across the world. Several recent studies have confirmed that problems occur during transition in diverse settings across several countries. In physical health, there are emerging models of practice to improve the process and outcomes of transition, but there is very little comparable literature in ...
Nurses are known for their hard work and ability to care for others. Mental health nurses have special skills that allow them to care for patients who are suffering from mental health conditions. Mental health nursing is an interesting career option where you help patients in a personal way. With mental health issues on the rise, mental health nursing care is a field that is almost certain to continue growing in the future. If you are considering pursuing a career in mental health nursing, check out the following to learn more about the duties of a mental health nurse and how to get into the field.. Mental health is a growing concern. Some studies show that mental health conditions in the US are increasing. Mental health professionals sometimes believe that this might be due to an increase in people recognizing that they are experiencing mental health difficulties or they are perceiving the effects more now. Factors that might contribute to this include high rates of unemployment, generational ...
As the social and economic costs associated with mental disorders continue to rise, policymakers and mental health administrators are faced with dwindling budgets and the need for expanded and improved services. This ambitious new work offers a thorough examination of these difficult policy issues, together with studies of the population groups affected and the programs and facilities designed to serve them. Written by twenty-nine specialists in the field, it provides analyses of recent empirical findings and a thoughtful review of the challenges that lie ahead. The first two chapters examine central policy concerns and the elements that make up the mental health service system. Epidemiological analyses focus on problem populations such as the chronically mentally ill, the elderly, children, minorities, and substance abusers. Mental health policy development is next explored. Specific topics covered include the deinstitutionalization of the mentally ill, the creation of community mental health ...
