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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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)

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

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)

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

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

The National Comorbidity Survey Replication Adolescent Supplement (NCS-A) was designed to estimate the lifetime-to-date and current prevalence, age-of-onset distributions, course, and comorbidity of DSM-IV disorders in the child and adolescent years of life among adolescents in the United States; to identify risk and protective factors for the onset and persistence of these disorders; to describe patterns and correlates of service use for these disorders; and to lay the groundwork for subsequent follow-up studies that can be used to identify early expressions of adult mental disorders. The core NCS-A interview schedule was an adaptation of the World Health Organization Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI). NCS-A also administered the non-verbal subtest (Matrices subtest) of the Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test (K-BIT). In addition to interviewing adolescents, information was collected from a parent or a parent surrogate to obtain an additional perspective on the adolescents mental ...

Interview with Ronald C. Kessler, PhD, author of Severity of 12-Month DSM-IV Disorders in the National Comorbidity Survey Replication Adolescent Supplement
New research by Associate Dean Paul Litton and MU Associate Professor of Philosophy Philip Robbins shows that offenders with genetic mental disorders are judged more negatively than mentally disordered offenders whose criminal behavior is rooted in environmental factors, such as childhood abuse. Additionally, offenders with genetic mental disorders are judged just as negatively as offenders whose mental disorder has no explanation.. Before conducting two surveys with 600 participants, Dean Litton and Professor Robbins hypothesized that offenders with a mental disorder that predisposes them to criminal behavior would be judged more negatively if the disorder was genetic rather than environmental in origin. That hypothesis was confirmed, though they were surprised that genetic explanations did not mitigate judgments of blame compared to cases with no explanation of the offenders disorder.. They also expected to find that different environmental explanations would elicit different judgments. For ...
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.

The NCS-A was carried out under a cooperative agreement sponsored by NIMH to meet a request from Congress to provide national data on the prevalence and correlates of mental disorders among U.S. youth. The NCS-A was a nationally representative, face-to-face survey of 10,123 adolescents aged 13 to 18 years in the continental United States. The survey was based on a dual-frame design that included 904 adolescent residents of the households that participated in the adult U.S. National Comorbidity Survey Replication and 9,244 adolescent students selected from a nationally representative sample of 320 schools. The survey was fielded between February 2001 and January 2004. DSM-IV mental disorders were assessed using a modified version of the fully structured World Health Organization Composite International Diagnostic Interview ...
Mental Health Disorders in Parents: The Affects on Children and Youth IntroductionIt has been reported that 21-23 percent of children have or have had atleast one parent with a mental health disorder. These statistics raise concern about the wellbeing of children with parents who possess a server mental illness and the resources not just for the parent, but the child or children affected. Children require numerous amounts of needs from their caregivers and an issue with parents who carry a severe mental health disorder is that the parents are unable to provide necessary needs due to their disorder and symptoms associated. Parents who possess a mental health disorder may unconsciously put their child at risk if proper attention isnt given to the childs development. Although these risks can be indirectly and unconsciously such as the social stigma attached to mental health disorders, mental effects on the child, genetic predisposition to mental illnesses themselves and the academic affects on ...
Psychiatric disorders are significantly associated with the incidence and prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, mortality, hospital readmissionn. Oral and dental hygiene may play a role in such association. This study aimed to evaluate the controlled direct effect of psychiatric disorders on cardiovascular diseases by controlling the mediating effect of oral and dental hygiene. The data used for this study came from the baseline phase of Ravansar Non-communicable Disease (RaNCD) cohort study. RaNCD cohort study is including a representative sample of 10,065 adults (35-65 years old) living in Ravansar, a city in the west of Iran. The marginal structural model with stabilized inverse probability weights accounted for potential confounders was used to estimate the controlled direct effect of psychiatric disorders on cardiovascular diseases. Three different models using three mediators including oral and dental hygiene behaviors, oral ulcer and lesions, and decayed, missing, and filled tooth, were used.

Keywords:Animal model, bipolar disorder, depression, endophenotype, microendophenotype, psychiatric disorder, PTSD, schizophrenia.. Abstract:Psychiatric disorders are caused not only by genetic factors but also by complicated factors such as environmental ones. Moreover, environmental factors are rarely quantitated as biological and biochemical indicators, making it extremely difficult to understand the pathological conditions of psychiatric disorders as well as their underlying pathogenic mechanisms. Additionally, we have actually no other option but to perform biological studies on postmortem human brains that display features of psychiatric disorders, ...
If you have a question about this talk, please contact mho28.. Chair: Prof Jeff Dalley. Abstract:Despite advances in pharmacological and psychological therapies over the past decades, there is still an unmet need for new treatment development for mental health disorders. One such potential treatment is targeting the reconsolidation of maladaptive memories that support mental health disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and drug addiction. Over the past 15 years, we have aimed to exploit the memory reconsolidation process to disrupt both pavlovian and instrumental memories supporting maladaptive behaviours. Using pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches, we have found that reconsolidation-based interventions can persistently reduce maladaptive behaviour in rodent models with relevance to mental health disorders. While challenges remain for the development of reconsolidation-based interventions to treat mental health disorders, we conclude that this approach ultimately ...

By Lita Lee, Ph.D.Mental problems from a nutritional viewDiscusses nutritional causes of mental and emotional problems: poor digestion of protein and sugar, hypothyroidism and a junk food diet. Many people who do not feel well who have normal blood chemistries are told they have emotional and/or mental problems. Many are prescribed drugs for depression. I have never believed that people just go nuts. I believe that mental or emotional problems are a result of abnormal body chemistry, poor nutrition and hormonal imbalances. This article presents a nutritional support program for these problems.
The title tells us accurately what this book is about: mild versions of mental illnesses. The authors state- and I believe them- that a mental disorder is not a discrete box to fit people into; mental disorders exist on a continuum, from almost unnoticeable to full blown psychosis (or, in the case of autism, Kanners syndrome). They examine mild forms of mania, ADHD, depression, OCD, anger, anxiety and autism, and say If mild forms of mental disorders are making you (and those around you) miserable, you should seek treatment and be able to be happy. They also point out that some of these mild disorders can confer advantages as well as problems: a person with hypomania can get a lot of things done; people with mild autism can focus incredibly well. Obviously, not all shadow syndromes have good sides; constantly being sad, lacking emotions, being angry all the time, perpetual worrying and having obsessions are not good things ...
Abstract: The effects of the Brown Creek Correctional Institutes Intermediate Care Social Skills Day Training Program were investigated using a population of forty-three adult male inmates with severe persistent mental illness. Comparisons were made for similar time periods before, during and after in regard to level of care, inpatient hospitalizations, behavioral infractions, and disciplinary segregations. Cost benefits were also investigated. Results indicate that the number and length of hospitalizations, length and number of disciplinary segregations, and number of behavioral infractions were lower for inmates during the program. However, some increases were found in these variables after inmates were transferred to other institutions. This increase could possibly be explained because of transfer to a lower level of care after participating in the Social Skills Day Training Program. Cost benefits were also found as a result of the lower number of hospitalizations, behavioral infractions, ...
At South Coast Counseling, we treat those who are diagnosed with one or more of a number of disorders relating to the use of alcohol or other substances. We also provide treatments for those patients who have such a disorder in addition to a mental health disorder. The latter type of client has what is called a Co-Occurring Disorder (COD).. The term substance use disorder includes drug or alcohol abuse, and also the dependency on these. Those who experience a chemical dependency on alcohol or drugs can also have a mood or anxiety disorder. Occasionally, a client will have a severe mental health disorder, in which episodes and symptoms are long-lasting and negatively affect his or her ability to cope with every day stressors and events. In the past, alcohol and substance use disorders were treated separately from each other.. A diagnosis of Co-Occurring Disorders results when the symptoms of a substance abuse disorder and a mental disorder are established independently of each other. In such ...

Anti-endothelial-cell antibodies are associated with psychiatric manifestations in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).Our primary aim in this study was to seek and characterize molecules that behave as endothelial autoantigens in SLE patients with psychiatric manifestations. By screening a cDNA library from human umbilical artery endothelial cells with serum from an SLE patient with psychosis, we identified one positive strongly reactive clone encoding the C-terminal region (C-ter) of Nedd5, an intracytoplasmatic protein of the septin family. To evaluate anti-Nedd5 serum immunoreactivity, we analyzed by ELISA specific IgG responses in 17 patients with SLE and psychiatric manifestations (group A), 34 patients with SLE without psychiatric manifestations (group B), 20 patients with systemic sclerosis, 20 patients with infectious mononucleosis, and 35 healthy subjects. IgG specific to Nedd5 C-ter was present in 14 (27%) of the 51 SLE patients. The mean optical density value for IgG immunoreactivity ...

The elderly population is increasing both in numbers and as a proportion of the overall population. Mental disorders are common among the elderly. Most older people with mental disorders live in the community and attend primary care rather than specialist psychiatric services. Many studies have shown low rates of detection and treatment of mental disorders in the elderly population. There are no published data on the range of mental disorders among the community dwelling elderly in an Irish context. This thesis describes the range of mental disorders among older people in a Dublin community and considers issues which contribute to the detection and treatment of these disorders ...
WEDNESDAY, Feb. 11, 2015 (HealthDay News) -- People with mental health conditions such as depression, chronic anxiety and schizophrenia tend to die at younger ages than their peers without psychiatric disorders, a new research review says.. In fact, the researchers estimated that mental health disorders typically rob people of nearly a decade of life, and account for 8 million deaths worldwide each year.. The findings, published online Feb. 11 in JAMA Psychiatry, come from an analysis of over 200 international studies spanning several decades. Researchers said the studies help put the global toll of mental health disorders into perspective.. Although the study found an association between mental health conditions and earlier death, it wasnt designed to prove that the disorders were a direct cause of the early deaths.. When people think of lives lost to mental illness, they might automatically focus on one cause of death -- namely, suicide, said Dr. Mark Olfson, a professor of clinical ...
Severe mental disorders such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia often co-occur with chronic medical illnesses, especially cardiovascular disease and diabetes. These comorbidities are associated with a more severe course of mental illness, reduced quality of life, and premature mortality. Although the association between mental disorders and physical health complications has long been recognized, medical conditions remain undertreated in clinical psychiatric practice, and the life expectancy for individuals with serious psychiatric disorders is approximately 30% shorter than that of the general US population. Factors that are related to the mental illness (eg, cognitive impairment, reduced ability to function, and a lack of communication skills) as well as factors such as the high cost of medical care may make accessing general health care a difficult task for patients. Even when medical care is received by patients, the quality is often poor, and dangerous illnesses may be undiagnosed and ...
Five of the most common psychiatric disorders share genetic risk factors, an international study published in the Lancet has found. These disorders include; autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), clinical depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.. These disorders that we thought of as quite different may not have such sharp boundaries, said one of the lead researchers, Dr Jordan Smoller of Massachusetts General Hospital, USA.. In the largest genetic study of mental illness to date, researchers compared the genomes of 33,000 people with one of five common psychiatric disorders to nearly 28,000 unaffected controls. All participants were of European ancestry. Genetic variations called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) identified in four regions of the genome were significantly associated with the psychiatric disorders. Two of these regions were involved in regulating the flow of calcium in nerve cells - a process that regulates brain activity. These findings hint at a ...

This study explores the benefits of and strategies to support walking among people with major mental disorders who live in the community
Mental disorder is not easy to define. It is a broad area and there is no single definition in the literature that covers all the situations and medical conditions that characterize a mental disorder. A person can be categorized a having a disorder (physical or mental) on the basis of structural pathology, symptom presentation, deviance from a physiological norm, and etiology.. Different researchers have attempted to define a mental disorder on the basis of concepts such as distress, disability, irritability, inflexibility, irrationality etc. Each of these can indicated a mental disorder, however, a comprehensive definition is still lacking. DSM has attempted to define a mental disorder as:. a clinically significant behavioral or psychological syndrome or pattern that occurs in an individual and that is associated with present distress (e.g., a painful symptom) or disability (i.e., impairment in one or more important areas of functioning) or with a significantly increased risk of suffering ...

The following is a list of mental disorders as defined by the DSM and ICD. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is the American Psychiatric Associations standard reference for psychiatry which includes over 450 different definitions of mental disorders.[1] The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) published by the World Health Organization (WHO) is the international standard system for classifying all medical diseases.[2] It also includes a section on mental and behavioral disorders. The diagnostic criteria and information in the DSM and ICD are revised and updated with each new version. This list contains conditions which are currently recognised as mental disorders as defined by these two systems. There is disagreement in various fields of mental health care, including the field of psychiatry, over the definitions and criteria used to delineate mental disorders. Of concern to some professionals is whether certain mental disorders should be classified as ...

BACKGROUND: C-reactive protein (CRP) is associated with immune, cardiometabolic, and psychiatric traits and diseases. Yet it is inconclusive whether these associations are causal. METHODS AND FINDINGS: We performed Mendelian randomization (MR) analyses using two genetic risk scores (GRSs) as instrumental variables (IVs). The first GRS consisted of four single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the CRP gene (GRSCRP), and the second consisted of 18 SNPs that were significantly associated with CRP levels in the largest genome-wide association study (GWAS) to date (GRSGWAS). To optimize power, we used summary statistics from GWAS consortia and tested the association of these two GRSs with 32 complex somatic and psychiatric outcomes, with up to 123,865 participants per outcome from populations of European ancestry. We performed heterogeneity tests to disentangle the pleiotropic effect of IVs. A Bonferroni-corrected significance level of less than 0.0016 was considered statistically significant. An observed p

Functional imaging is an important step in the diagnostic approach of patients with pheochromocytoma (PCC). Metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scintigraphy (single-photon emission computed tomography) is currently the most widely used functional imaging modality for evaluating a case of PCC. However, it has some limitations and poor sensitivity, especially in cases of malignant PCC (MPCC). Positron emission tomography (PET) scanning with gallium-68 (68Ga)-DOTA-coupled somatostatin analogs is the newer upcoming modality with some superiority over MIBG scan. We present a case of MPCC with unusual invasion and metastasis positive on DOTANOC PET scan along with relevant review of literature. ...
Introduction. Depression Depression is a mental health disorder and invisible illness. It affects everything about the person. Depression involves the body, mood and thoughts. If not treated, it could last for months or even years. In some types of depression, the mental health disorder can run in families. People that are vulnerable to being depressed are often stressed, have low self esteem and often those who suffer from a medical illness such as cancer are also prone. People that are stressed could be stressed because of home life, work or school. If someone is suffering from a long term illness such as cancer or Parkinsons disease, the individual can often become depressed because they might not have the strength and are physically weak to do anything for themselves and ashamed that they need help. Often a change in the persons life can trigger it off. The symptoms of depression can vary on each individual. A manic depressive or otherwise known as Bipolar Disorder. more. ...
The world keeps developing and our ways of thinking keep changing due to exposure to different developments around us. Although the way the society thinks of mental illness has changed, it has not changed as much as it ought to.. One of the major problems that mentally ill patients face, especially in collectivistic societies, is being termed as violent people. Many people still hold on to that misconception that every mentally ill patient is a violent person. The reverse is the case really; being mentally ill does not automatically make one violent. Even those that exhibit violent tendencies act that way not because they want to hurt others, but because it is a form of coping mechanism. Violent behaviours amongst mentally ill people is an externalized expression of symptoms and a way of dealing with conflict, fear, and goal-blockage.. People with mental disorders have a lot going for them, especially those in countries that think being mentally ill is something to be ashamed of. When patients ...

It has been suggested that certain types of work may increase the risk of common mental disorders, but the exact nature of the relationship has been contentious. The aim of this paper is to conduct the first comprehensive systematic meta-review of the evidence linking work to the development of common mental health problems, specifically depression, anxiety and/or work-related stress and to consider how the risk factors identified may relate to each other. MEDLINE, PsychInfo, Embase, the Cochrane Collaboration and grey literature databases were systematically searched for review articles that examined work-based risk factors for common mental health problems. All included reviews were subjected to a quality appraisal. 37 review studies were identified, of which 7 were at least moderate quality. 3 broad categories of work-related factors were identified to explain how work may contribute to the development of depression and/or anxiety: imbalanced job design, occupational uncertainty and lack of ...
Patients requiring bariatric surgery often have mental health disorders according to a newly published study featuring in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The UCLA study provided a review of 68 publications between 1988 and 2015 emphasizing bariatric surgery and prevalence of mental health disorders. The two most common mental health disorders found with bariatric surgery patients are binge eating disorder and depression. However, these findings do not automatically disqualify a person from the surgical weight loss procedure. Previous studies have shown that severely obese patients seeking bariatric surgery are often diagnosed with depression as well. Nonetheless, no study has brought consistent proof that mental health disorders hinder weight loss goals in the postoperative phase.. Patients requiring bariatric surgery often have mental health disorders. While several questions remain unanswered, the newly published study revealed the prevalence of mental health disorders ...

PURPOSE: Epidemiological research has consistently shown an association between mental disorders and marital dissolution. However, this research mostly examined the association of divorce as a risk factor for mental illness. This study prospectively examined the associations of mood, anxiety, and substance use disorders with future marital dissolution and new marriages in a representative population sample. METHODS: The study used data from the National Comorbidity Survey panel study-a two-wave community epidemiological survey of 5001 participants interviewed in 1990-1992 and re-interviewed in 2001-2003. Mental disorders were ascertained with the Composite International Diagnostic Interview, a fully structured instrument. Associations of baseline lifetime disorders and disorders with onset after the baseline with subsequent divorce and marriage/remarriage were examined using discrete-time survival analysis models. RESULTS: Mental disorders at baseline or with onset after baseline were associated ...

A mental disorder or mental illness is a psychological or behavioral pattern generally associated with subjective distress or disability that occurs in an individual, and which is not a part of normal development or culture. Such a disorder may consist of a combination of affective, behavioural, cognitive and perceptual components. The recognition and understanding of mental health conditions have changed over time and across cultures, and there are still variations in the definition, assessment, and classification of mental disorders, although standard guideline criteria are widely accepted. A few mental disorders are diagnosed based on the harm to others, regardless of the subjects perception of distress. Over a third of people in most countries report meeting criteria for the major categories at some point in their lives. The causes are often explained in terms of a diathesis-stress model or biopsychosocial model. In biological psychiatry, mental disorders are conceptualized as disorders of ...
Mental illness tends to run in families. This is true not only within types of disorders - such as families with multiple members who tend toward alcoholism - but across types as well. People whose family members struggle with one type of mental illness have a higher risk of having any kind of mental health disorder. In particular, a person who grew up with a parent who had a mental illness is more likely to develop mental illness, according to the American Society for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. When both parents have a mental illness, the childs risk is even greater.. Nevertheless, having a family member with a mental health disorder does not guarantee that an individual will develop one. There are other factors that come into account. For example, a child whose parent has a mental health disorder may be less likely to develop mental illness if there are certain protective factors, such as if the child:. ...

Saúde Pública [online]. 2007, vol.23, n.7, pp.1633-1639. ISSN 0102-311X. This study investigates the association between history of asthma and common mental disorders among employees at a public university in the State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Phase 1 cross-sectional data from a cohort study (the Pró-Saúde Study) were collected from 4,030 employees. Asthma was ascertained by self-reported medical diagnosis, and the occurrence of common mental disorders was based on the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12). Generalized linear models were used to calculate prevalence rates. Asthma prevalence was 11% (444), of whom 39.7% (176) presented common mental disorders. History of asthma was associated with higher ...

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 ...
Mental disorders during Cocainum use. Narcomaniacs usually smell cocainum, it is easily soaked up in a blood through a nasal mucosa. At intravenous injection the influence of a narcotic is stronger. Cocainum causes revaluation of the opportunities, often there are crazy ideas, hallucinations as a result of which socially dangerous acts are performed.. Cocainic intoxication is characterized as similar to maniacal, with well expressed euphoria. Having taken cocainum, the person feels extraordinary self-confident, capable for everything, own thoughts seem him very deep, full of mysterious sense. Also cocainum causes sexual exaltation.. At cocainum overdosage convulsive attacks, syncopes happen.. Other mental disorders are also frequent:. - Cocainic delirium. The patient sees bright visual, auditory and tactile hallucinations which he confuses with real life.. - Cocainic oneiroid. The patient passively watches similar to stage performance pictures.. - Cocainic paranoid. The patient unexpectedly has ...
Perinatal mental disorders are associated with increased risk of psychological and developmental disturbances in children. However, these disturbances are not inevitable. In this Series paper, we summarise evidence for associations between parental disorders and offspring outcomes from fetal development to adolescence in high-income, middle-income, and low-income countries. We assess evidence for mechanisms underlying transmission of disturbance, the role of mediating variables (underlying links between parent psychopathology and offspring outcomes) and possible moderators (which change the strength of any association), and focus on factors that are potentially modifiable, including parenting quality, social (including partner) and material support, and duration of the parental disorder. We review research of interventions, which are mostly about maternal depression, and emphasise the need to both treat the parents disorder and help with associated caregiving difficulties. We conclude with policy

Licensed psychiatrists and psychologists can both diagnose mental health disorders. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in mental health. A psychologist also specializes in mental health but does not hold a medical degree. Psychiatrists can prescribe medication; psychologists cannot. Specialized education and practical experience are needed to be licensed in both professions.. Mental health professionals typically begin an evaluation by having a conversation about current symptoms. Often, mental health disorders can be diagnosed through informal conversations with a therapist. Sometimes, the therapist will administer a more structured psychological evaluation in order to better determine the correct diagnosis. These evaluations come in many forms, depending on the specific diagnosis in question. Oftentimes, the therapist will assess the clients answers to the particular tests questions to determine which diagnosis is most appropriate.. Most psychiatrists and psychologists use ...

Cochrane Common Mental Disorders works in partnership with the Mental Health Foundation. This partnership helps Cochrane to produce evidence that is relevant to people with everyday lived experience of common mental disorders. Our work with the Mental Health Foundation enables us to better understand what matters to people and to improve the ways we involve people with lived experience in what we are doing. Together we aim to put trusted evidence at the heart of health care decisions for people with common mental disorders.. In June 2019 this partnership was officially launched by hosting an afternoon of debate and discussion at the British Library. Watch a short video about this day below:. ...
Findings-Intent-2005 c 504: The legislature finds that persons with mental disorders, chemical dependency disorders, or co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are disproportionately more likely to be confined in a correctional institution, become homeless, become involved with child protective services or involved in a dependency proceeding, or lose those state and federal benefits to which they may be entitled as a result of their disorders. The legislature finds that prior state policy of addressing mental health and chemical dependency in isolation from each other has not been cost-effective and has often resulted in longer-term, more costly treatment that may be less effective over time. The legislature finds that a substantial number of persons have co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders and that identification and integrated treatment of co-occurring disorders is critical to successful outcomes and recovery. Consequently, the legislature intends, to the extent of ...
Background & Aims: In developed countries mental disorders are recognized by screening questionnaires and clinical interviews. Since there is a limited number of epidemiological studies about mental disorders in Iranian population, the present study was performed to find the prevalence and type of mental disorders among Kerman residents older than 15 years old. Method: At the first step, GHQ - 28 was completed door - side for 1527 residents selected through stratified cluster sampling. The cut off point of 6 was considered as disorder presence. At the second step, 490 ones who had obtained the cut off point participated in DSM - IV clinical interview. Results: In whole, 32.1% (34.5% female and 27.1% male) were diagnosed as psychiatrically ill. The frequency of mental disorders was 35.1% among those over 65 years, 35.3% among 45 - 64 years subjects, 100% in divorced, 45.8% in widows, 40.2% in illiterates, 36.9% in students, 34.7% in housewives and 34.8% in low socioeconomic class.

The prevalence of mental illness across the globe and in the United States has become a heavy public health burden. Studies have shown that people with mental illness are at high risk of mortality and morbidities. Understanding the magnitude of premature mortality and underlying risk factors among patients with mental disease has important implications for decreasing the burden of mental disease.. To quantify the social and economic impact of mortality caused by mental disease in a society, researchers and health policymakers need an index that is easy to understand for most people. One of the most commonly used methods measuring premature mortality is years of potential life lost (YPLL). YPLL is an estimate of the years a person would have lived if he or she had not died. Despite its nice interpretation, the estimate of YPLL is a biased estimate because censored data are not included. Another method to measure the risk of premature death is Cox proportional hazard model. But the estimated risk ...
Causes of Mental Disorders, 978-613-5-63794-6, Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The causes of mental disorders are complex, and interact and vary according to the particular disorder and individual. Genetics, early development, drugs, a loss of a family member, disease or injury, neurocognitive and psychological mechanisms, and life experiences, society and culture, can all contribute to the development or progression of different mental disorders. Family-linkage and twin studies have indicated that genetic factors often play an important role in the development of mental disorders. The reliable identification of specific genetic susceptibility to particular disorders, through linkage or association studies, has proven difficult. This has been reported to be likely due to the complexity of interactions between genes, environmental events, and early development or to the need for new research strategies.
Recently, an intriguing article was published in the The New York Times about virtual reality as a relatively new tool for use in psychological therapy. This new treatment has the potential to fundamentally change the way psychologists treat many mental health disorders and make quality mental health care more accessible. Results from a number of clinical trial studies dating as far back as the 1990s have successfully demonstrated that using virtual reality as a tool in psychological or exposure therapy can effectively treat mental health disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder and a variety of phobias among other conditions.. There are only a few psychologists currently using virtual reality technology to treat their patients-among them is Dr. Dawn Jewell in Colorado, US. Dr. Jewell uses the technology created by the start-up company Limbix. Limbix has revolutionized exposure therapy by incorporating virtual reality and a Google headset named Daydream View which works alongside a ...
Objective: Scientific knowledge about symptoms of common mental disorders in elite sports is scarce. Consequently, the objectives of the study were to (i) establish the 12-month incidence of symptoms of common mental disorders (CMD; distress, anxiety/depression, sleep disturbance, adverse alcohol use, eating disorders) among Dutch elite athletes and (ii) explore their potential association with several stressors (being injured, recent life events, career dissatisfaction).Methods: A prospective cohort study with a 12-month follow-up period was conducted. The study used validated questionnaires to assess symptoms of common mental disorders (thus not clinically diagnosed) as well as several stressors; an electronic questionnaire was set up and repeatedly distributed.Results: A total of 203 elite athletes gave their written informed consent to participate in the study, from which 143 completed the 12-month follow-up period (follow-up rate of 70%). Incidence of symptoms of CMD ranged from 6% for ...

This study evaluates the association between Internal Addiction (IA) and psychiatric co-morbidity in the literature. Meta-analyses were conducted on cross-sectional, case-control and cohort studies which examined the relationship between IA and psychiatric co-morbidity. Selected studies were extracted from major online databases. The inclusion criteria are as follows: 1) studies conducted on human subjects; 2) IA and psychiatric co-morbidity were assessed by standardised questionnaires; and 3) availability of adequate information to calculate the effect size. Random-effects models were used to calculate the aggregate prevalence and the pooled odds ratios (OR). Eight studies comprising 1641 patients suffering from IA and 11210 controls were included. Our analyses demonstrated a significant and positive association between IA and alcohol abuse (OR = 3.05, 95% CI = 2.14-4.37, z = 6.12, P | 0.001), attention deficit and hyperactivity (OR = 2.85, 95% CI = 2.15-3.77, z = 7.27, P | 0.001), depression (OR = 2
Researchers generally agree that mental disorder represents a burden to the family. The present study concerns the subjective burden of living with a person with mental disorder, more specifically the association between mental disorder in the index person and subjective well-being and symptoms of anxiety and depression in the spouse. Data were obtained from questionnaires administered to the adult population of Nord-Trøndelag County, Norway during the period 1995-1997. The present study is based on a subsample where 9,740 couples were identified. Subjective burden in spouses of persons with mental disorder was compared with subjective burden in spouses of persons without mental disorder, using analysis of variance (ANOVA). All analyses were stratified by sex. Adjusting for several covariates, spouses of persons with mental disorder scored significantly lower on subjective well-being and significantly higher on symptoms of anxiety and depression compared to spouses of index persons without mental
Recovery-oriented services are a goal for policy and practice in the Australian mental health service system. Evidence-based reform requires an instrument to measure knowledge of recovery concepts. The Recovery Knowledge Inventory (RKI) was designed for this purpose, however, its suitability and validity for student health professionals has not been evaluated. The purpose of the current article is to report the psychometric features of the RKI for measuring nursing students views on recovery. The RKI, a self-report measure, consists of four scales: (I) Roles and Responsibilities, (II) Non-Linearity of the Recovery Process, (III) Roles of Self-Definition and Peers, and (IV) Expectations Regarding Recovery. Confirmatory and exploratory factor analyses of the baseline data (n = 167) were applied to assess validity and reliability. Exploratory factor analyses generally replicated the item structure suggested by the three main scales, however more stringent analyses (confirmatory factor analysis) did ...
Mental illnesses are among the greatest challenges to understanding ourselves as human beings.. These are the words of William V. Harris, the William R. Shepherd Professor of History,and director of the Columbia Center for the Ancient Mediterranean, who is performing a groundbreaking research exploring the description of madness and other mental disorders in Classical Litterature.. Back in 2008, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation granded Prof. Harris a three-year grant of $1.5 million for distinguished lifetime achievement. The Professor decided to use the grant to promote research on the history of mental disorders in the classical world, and also on some other, not closely related, aspects of the classical world.. The examples are many. All three great tragedians, Sophocles, Aeschylus and Euripides, staged scenes of madness, with the most detailed being Sophocles Ajax, who slaughters sheep and cattle believing them to be Greek generals who disgraced him and he later commits suicide.

This project aims to produce a preference-based measure for common mental health problems derived from the CORE-OM. The project develops methodology that can be used to derive a preference-based measure where some of the dimensions are highly correlated and are therefore not independent.. The CORE-OM is a 34-item measure monitoring clinical outcomes of people with common mental health problems. CORE-OM is characterised by high correlation across its domains. The project used Rasch analysis to reduce the number of items and response levels in order to produce a set of unidimensionally-behaving items. Rasch analysis was subsequently used to generate a credible set of health states corresponding to different levels of symptom severity using the Rasch item threshold map.. The proposed methodology resulted in the development of CORE-6D, a 2-dimensional health state description system consisting of a unidimensionally-behaving 5-item emotional component and a physical symptom item. Inspection of the ...

Pete Fleischmann. Whats it like to have mental health issues and be in a job? As someone who has experienced mental health issues, and a manager, I have thought a great deal about the issue of employment and mental health. Im one of the lucky ones. Thats because my work has been all about involving service users in the design and delivery of services and my experience of using services is seen as an asset. Also Ive been reasonably stable for a long time as I do a lot to look after my well being. However, I know that my experiences arent always the norm. At SCIE, we have a new At a glance briefing, Research Briefing and Digital Report on these issues.

Psychiatric Disorders: Eight to 15 percent of prisoners have a serious and persistent mental illness,12,18 and the proportion is even higher in maximum-security prisons.1 Many prisoners have multiple psychiatric disorders with co-morbid substance abuse.37,38 Using the NIMH Diagnostic Interview Schedule (DIS) III-R, Teplin et al.39 studied a randomly selected stratified sample of 1272 female arrestees in Cook County and found that 80 percent had one or more lifetime psychiatric disorders. Using similar methodology, Daniel et al.40 found that 90 percent of consecutively admitted female prisoners had an Axis I disorder and 67 percent had more than one disorder. As far as the prevalence of psychiatric disorders among suicidal inmates is concerned, studies show a wide range from 33 to 95 percent.3,22,28-30,41,42. Although mood,3,43 psychotic,29 and personality disorders dominate diagnoses30 among mentally ill prisoners, depressive disorders are more often linked to suicide than is any other ...
Perhaps, Alzheimers Disease is amongst the most incapacitating mental conditions known to man. The enhancing frequency of the condition has actually caused alarm system since present drugs just assist ease the signs and symptoms and not actually deal with the problem. Typically identified throughout the latter years of an individual, Alzheimers could take an enormous toll on ones life as well as partnerships. As a debilitating problem, it swiftly takes away the patients confidence and capacity to physically operate in a normal means. In contrast to other mental health problems, Alzheimers is reasonably easy to find if the person is properly educated. Nevertheless, as previously mentioned, the condition is difficult to treat with any kind of degree of certainty. Counseling is recognized to have very little impacts even the mildest of cases. There is still no psychedelic medication that has shown significant impacts other than delaying the inevitable ...
After a long exhausting research about mental disorders in my favorite search engine ( I stumbled upon an article about a girl named Annaliese Michel.

People who have been dually diagnosed with a severe mental illness and a substance abuse disorder are at an elevated risk for contracting blood-borne infections, such as HIV, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C virus (HCV). Prevention, early detection, and treatment for these diseases are essential for this particular population. Research has shown that rates of HCV infection are 11 times higher in people with mental illnesses than in the general population. People with mental health illnesses and those with dual diagnoses should receive basic CDC-recommended services for risk screening and testing of HIV infection, AIDS, and hepatitis. They should also receive hepatitis A and B immunizations, risk reduction counseling, and referrals for medical care. However, most people with severe mental illnesses and substance abuse disorders do not receive the care they need. The STIRR (screen, test, immunize, reduce risk, and refer) intervention will provide necessary prevention and treatment services to an ...
