A modified Greco-Arabic medical system flourishing today as unani medicine. It was the product of Arab physicians and scholars captivated by Greek philosophy, science, and medicine. It is practiced today in India and Pakistan, largely as a type of herbal medicine. (From Magner, A History of Medicine, 1992, p136)

A complex body of social, cultural, and religious beliefs and practices evolved in and largely confined to the Indian subcontinent and marked by a caste system, an outlook tending to view all forms and theories as aspects of one eternal being and truth, and the practice of the way of works, the way of knowledge, or the way of devotion as a means of release from the round of rebirths. (From Webster, 3d ed)
Textbooks as Topic
A type of anxiety disorder characterized by unexpected panic attacks that last minutes or, rarely, hours. Panic attacks begin with intense apprehension, fear or terror and, often, a feeling of impending doom. Symptoms experienced during a panic attack include dyspnea or sensations of being smothered; dizziness, loss of balance or faintness; choking sensations; palpitations or accelerated heart rate; shakiness; sweating; nausea or other form of abdominal distress; depersonalization or derealization; paresthesias; hot flashes or chills; chest discomfort or pain; fear of dying and fear of not being in control of oneself or going crazy. Agoraphobia may also develop. Similar to other anxiety disorders, it may be inherited as an autosomal dominant trait.

The impact of genetic counselling on risk perception and mental health in women with a family history of breast cancer. (1/2544)The present study investigated: (1) perception of genetic risk and, (2) the psychological effects of genetic counselling in women with a family history of breast cancer. Using a prospective design, with assessment pre- and post-genetic counselling at clinics and by postal follow-up at 1, 6 and 12 months, attenders at four South London genetic clinics were assessed. Participants included 282 women with a family history of breast cancer. Outcome was measured in terms of mental health, cancer-specific distress and risk perception. High levels of cancer-specific distress were found pre-genetic counselling, with 28% of participants reporting that they worried about breast cancer 'frequently or constantly' and 18% that worry about breast cancer was 'a severe or definite problem'. Following genetic counselling, levels of cancer-specific distress were unchanged. General mental health remained unchanged over time (33% psychiatric cases detected pre-genetic counselling, 27% at 12 months after genetic counselling). Prior to their genetics consultation, participants showed poor knowledge of their lifetime risk of breast cancer since there was no association between their perceived lifetime risk (when they were asked to express this as a 1 in x odds ratio) and their actual risk, when the latter was calculated by the geneticist at the clinic using the CASH model. In contrast, women were more accurate about their risk of breast cancer pre-genetic counselling when this was assessed in broad categorical terms (i.e. very much lower/very much higher than the average woman) with a significant association between this rating and the subsequently calculated CASH risk figure (P = 0.001). Genetic counselling produced a modest shift in the accuracy of perceived lifetime risk, expressed as an odds ratio, which was maintained at 12 months' follow-up. A significant minority failed to benefit from genetic counselling; 77 women continued to over-estimate their risk and maintain high levels of cancer-related worry. Most clinic attenders were inaccurate in their estimates of the population risk of breast cancer with only 24% able to give the correct figure prior to genetic counselling and 36% over-estimating this risk. There was some improvement following genetic counselling with 62% able to give the correct figure, but this information was poorly retained and this figure had dropped to 34% by the 1-year follow-up. The study showed that women attending for genetic counselling are worried about breast cancer, with 34% indicating that they had initiated the referral to the genetic clinic themselves. This anxiety is not alleviated by genetic counselling, although women reported that it was less of a problem at follow-up. Women who continue to over-estimate their risk and worry about breast cancer are likely to go on seeking unnecessary screening if they are not reassured. (+info)
Sexual harassment and generalized workplace abuse among university employees: prevalence and mental health correlates. (2/2544)OBJECTIVES: This study hypothesized that interpersonal workplace stressors involving sexual harassment and generalized workplace abuse are highly prevalent and significantly linked with mental health outcomes including symptomatic distress, the use and abuse of alcohol, and other drug use. METHODS: Employees in 4 university occupational groups (faculty, student, clerical, and service workers; n = 2492) were surveyed by means of a mailed self-report instrument. Cross-tabular and ordinary least squares and logistic regression analyses examined the prevalence of harassment and abuse and their association with mental health status. RESULTS: The data show high rates of harassment and abuse. Among faculty, females were subjected to higher rates; among clerical and service workers, males were subjected to higher rates. Male and female clerical and service workers experienced higher levels of particularly severe mistreatment. Generalized abuse was more prevalent than harassment for all groups. Both harassment and abuse were significantly linked to most mental health outcomes for men and women. CONCLUSIONS: Interpersonally abusive workplace dynamics constitute a significant public health problem that merits increased intervention and prevention strategies. (+info)
Psychological factors associated with recurrent vaginal candidiasis: a preliminary study. (3/2544)OBJECTIVE: To identify psychological factors associated with chronic recurrent vaginal candidiasis. DESIGN: A cross sectional exploratory study of women with chronic, recurrent vaginal candidiasis. PATIENTS: 28 women found culture positive and treated for vaginal candidiasis by a clinic physician at least twice within the past 6 months. All women reported that they had experienced vaginal thrush six or more times within 1 year. A comparison group comprised 16 women with no history of recurrent vaginal candidiasis, of similar age range, and recruited from a women's family planning service. METHODS: Both groups were compared on demographic criteria, sexual health histories, mental health, and psychological health characteristics. A purpose designed structured interview was administered alongside a battery of standardised psychometric instruments measuring mood, satisfaction with life, self esteem, and perceived stress. RESULTS: The two groups showed considerable similarities, with no significant differences in demographic characteristics and most sexual health issues. However, women with recurrent vaginal candidiasis were significantly more likely to suffer clinical depression, to be less satisfied with life, to have poorer self esteem, and to perceive their lives as more stressful. Additionally, women with recurrent vaginal candidiasis reported that their candidiasis seriously interfered with their sexual and emotional relationships. CONCLUSIONS: Overall, this study identified many areas of psychological morbidity associated with chronic vaginal candidiasis, and indicates that development of appropriate psychological treatment initiatives in this area is long overdue.

Income group differences in relationships among survey measures of physical and mental health. (4/2544)The present research tested the hypothesis that the experience of health is hierarchically organized such that gratification of physical health needs must precede gratification of mental health needs. It was reasoned that because the nondisadvantaged possess greater resources for the gratification of health needs in general, symptoms of mental illness would be more salient for this group and thus better able to explain variance in both mental and physical illness. On the other hand, it was reasoned that symptoms of physical illness would be more salient and thus better able to explain variance in both mental and physical illness for the disadvantaged. Results of the study indicate income group differences in patterns of relationships among health variables, supporting the hypothesis and suggesting important differences in the validity of health measures across income groups. The results are related to previous findings in medical sociology, and suggestions for future research are made. (+info)
Epidemiology of job stress and health in Japan: review of current evidence and future direction. (5/2544)With the increasing concern about job stress, there is a growing body of literature addressing psychosocial job stress and its adverse effects on health in Japan. This paper reviews research findings over the past 15 years concerning the assessment of job stress, the relationship of job stress to mental and physical health, and the effects of worksite stress reduction activities in Japan. Although studies were conducted in the past using ad-hoc job stress questionnaires, well-established job stressor scales have since been translated into Japanese, their psychometric properties tested and these scales extensively used in recent epidemiologic studies. While the impact of overtime and quantitative job overload on mental health seems moderate, job control, skill use and worksite support, as well as qualitative job demands, had greater effects on psychological distress and drinking problems in cross-sectional and prospective studies. These job stressors also indicated a strong association with psychiatric disorders, including major depression, even with a prospective study design. Long working hours were associated with a higher risk of myocardial infarction, diabetes mellitus and hypertension. There is evidence that the job demands-control model, as well as the use of new technology at work, is associated with higher levels of blood pressure and serum lipids among Japanese working populations. Fibrinolytic activity, blood glucose levels, immune functions and medical consultation rates were also affected by job stressors. It is further suggested that Japanese workers tend to suppress expression of positive feelings, which results in apparently higher psychological distress and lower job satisfaction among Japanese workers compared with workers in the U.S. Future epidemiologic studies in Japan should focus more on a prospective study design, theoretical models of job stress, job stress among women, and cultural difference and well-designed intervention studies of various types of worksite stress reduction.

Job stressor-mental health associations in a sample of Japanese working adults: artifacts of positive and negative questions? (6/2544)To examine whether positive and negative components of mental health were differently related to job stressors and life events, correlational analyses were conducted using data for the GHQ-12 and some scales of the NIOSH Generic Job Stress Questionnaire collected from 765 workers in Japan. Six positive items and six negative items of the GHQ-12 were summed up for positive and negative components of mental health (GHQ-POS, GHQ-NEG). The GHQ-POS was significantly correlated with only positively-oriented job stressors. The GHQ-NEG was significantly correlated with only negatively-oriented job stressors. Most correlations were significantly different between GHQ-POS and GHQ-NEG. This correlation pattern resulted in smaller, but significant, correlations between job stressors and the GHQ-12. These results may reflect "measuring similarity" due to item-wording. Detailed inspection suggested that GHQ-POS and GHQ-NEG, as well as positively- and negatively-oriented job stressors, were not attributable only to positive affectively or negative affectivity, respectively. Work-related events showed higher correlations with all mental health variables than their job stressors' counterparts. For females, mental health variables were seldom correlated with job stressors, but significantly correlated with life events. These results might indicate the superiority of "event-type stress measure" as compared to perceived rating scale in assessing job stressors. Further direction was discussed. (+info)
Assessment of the SF-36 version 2 in the United Kingdom. (7/2544)OBJECTIVES: To introduce the UK SF36 Version II (SF36-II), and to (a) gain population norms for the UK SF36-II in a large community sample as well as to explore the instrument's internal consistency reliability and construct validity, and (b) to derive the Physical Component Summary (PCS) and Mental Component Summary (MCS) algorithms for the UK SF36-II. DESIGN: Postal survey using a questionnaire booklet, containing the SF-36-II and questions on demographics and long term illness. SETTING: The sample was drawn from General Practitioner Records held by the Health Authorities for Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, and Oxfordshire. SAMPLE: The questionnaire was sent to 13,800 randomly selected subjects between the ages of 18-64 inclusive. OUTCOME MEASURES: Scores for the eight dimensions of the UK SF36-II and the PCS and MCS summary scores. RESULTS: The survey achieved a response rate of 64.4% (n = 8889). Internal consistency of the different dimensions of the questionnaire were found to be high. Normative data for the SF-36 are reported, broken down by age and sex, and social class. Factor analysis of the eight domains produced a two factor solution and provided weights for the UK SF36-II. CONCLUSION: The SF36-II domains were shown to have improved reliability over the previous version of the UK SF36. Furthermore, enhancements to wording and response categories reduces the extent of floor and ceiling effects in the role performance dimensions. These advances are likely to lead to better precision as well as greater responsiveness in longitudinal studies. (+info)
Bullying behaviour and psychosocial health among school students in New South Wales, Australia: cross sectional survey. (8/2544)OBJECTIVES: To examine the prevalence of bullying behaviours in schoolchildren and the association of bullying with psychological and psychosomatic health. DESIGN: Cross sectional survey. SETTING: Government and non-government schools in New South Wales, Australia. PARTICIPANTS: 3918 schoolchildren attending year 6 (mean age 11.88 years), year 8 (13.96), and year 10 (15.97) classes from 115 schools. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Self reported bullying behaviours and psychological and psychosomatic symptoms. RESULTS: Almost a quarter of students (23.7%) bullied other students, 12.7% were bullied, 21.5% were both bullied and bullied others on one or more occasions in the last term of school, and 42.4% were neither bullied nor bullied others. More boys than girls reported bullying others and being victims of bullying. Bullying behaviour was associated with increased psychosomatic symptoms. Bullies tended to be unhappy with school; students who were bullied tended to like school and to feel alone. Students who both bullied and were bullied had the greatest number of psychological and psychosomatic symptoms. CONCLUSIONS: Being bullied seems to be widespread in schools in New South Wales and is associated with increased psychosomatic symptoms and poor mental health. Health practitioners evaluating students with common psychological and psychosomatic symptoms should consider bullying and the student's school environment as potential causes. (+info)
Promoting youth mental health: priorities for policy from an Australian perspective - Rickwood - 2011 - Early Intervention in...
Aim: This paper considers the priorities for policy to promote youth mental health in Australia. The Ottawa Charter is applied as a conceptual framework to determine current strengths and future priorities across the entire spectrum of interventions for mental health promotion.. Methods: The five platforms of the Ottawa Charter are used to categorize some of the major initiatives that promote youth mental health. Areas of strength and major gaps within each platform are identified.. Results: Australia was shown to be at the forefront of many youth mental health promotion initiatives, particularly in the service reorientation and personal skills platforms of the Ottawa Charter.. Conclusions: While significant progress has been made in some areas of youth mental health promotion, areas of critical need for policy focus were: oversight of all public policies for their impact on youth mental health; more supportive environments for youth and better interconnection with mental health care; community ...
Mental Health Promotion
The goal of mental health promotion is to enhance awareness and understanding of mental health issues, reduce stigma and promote positive mental health to the public. Mental health promotion includes education and training of human resources in the formal mental health/addiction system. The concept of mental health literacy is often used in the context of mental health promotion. Mental health literacy refers to the knowledge, beliefs and abilities that support the recognition, management or prevention of mental illnesses or substance use disorders. A high public level of mental health literacy makes early recognition of and appropriate intervention in mental illnesses and substance use disorders more likely. It is also effective in reducing stigma. Mental health promotion is highly linked to prevention as well and there are three main types. Primary prevention is directed at averting a potential mental health/substance use problem. Secondary prevention is directed at early detection and ...

Longitudinal effects on mental health of moving to greener and less green urban areas - IssueLab
Despite growing evidence of public health benefits from urban green space there has been little longitudinal analysis. This study used panel data to explore three different hypotheses about how moving to greener or less green areas may affect mental health over time. The samples were participants in the British Household Panel Survey with mental health data (General Health Questionnaire scores) for five consecutive years, and who relocated to a different residential area between the second and third years (n = 1064; observations = 5320). Fixed-effects analyses controlled for time-invariant individual level heterogeneity and other area and individual level effects. Compared to premove mental health scores, individuals who moved to greener areas (n = 594) had significantly better mental health in all three postmove years (P = .015; P = .016; P = .008), supporting a shifting baseline hypothesis. Individuals who moved to less green areas (n = 470) showed significantly worse mental health in the year

TY - JOUR. T1 - Exploring young peoples expectations of a youth mental health care service. AU - Watsford, Clare. AU - Rickwood, Debra. AU - Vanags, Thea. PY - 2012. Y1 - 2012. N2 - Client expectations about mental health services relate to the clients and the therapists role, the therapeutic process and therapeutic outcomes. Research with adults shows that such expectations affect service engagement and clinical outcomes. Aim: The present study investigated expectations for adolescents and young adults, which have not been adequately investigated and may partly explain the reluctance of young people to seek professional help. Methods: Participants included 20 young people aged 1224 attending their initial session at a youth mental health service, who were interviewed immediately prior to their initial session. Data were analysed using qualitative methods to draw main themes around each of the four expectancy types. Results: Overall, the strongest theme was that young people were unsure of ...

Mental health as a global health priority - IFHHRO
June 8, 2017. Topics: mental health , sdgs , special rapporteur. At the Thirty-fifth session of the Human Rights Council (June 6-23, 2017), the Special Rapporteur on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health presented his latest report, focusing on mental health as a global health priority.. In this report, the Special Rapporteur calls for a paradigm shift in mental health policies, moving away from a strict biomedical approach to an approach in which the social and underlying determinants of mental health are also addressed, among others by the prioritization of mental health promotion and prevention in public policy.. Conclusions (excerpt from the report). Mental health has often been neglected and when it does receive resources, it becomes dominated by ineffective and harmful models, attitudes and imbalances. That has led to the current situation of the grossly unmet need for rights-based mental health promotion and care. People ...

The Publics views of mental health in pregnant and postpartum women: a population-based study | BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth |...
This study provides the first Canadian data related to public views of perinatal mental health and adds to the limited body of evidence on this topic. Only one other study in Australia has described the publics views of perinatal mental health at a population-level . Overall, we found that levels of knowledge of postnatal mental health were high, while knowledge regarding prenatal mental health was significantly lower. Understanding the contributions of past mental health problems and prenatal mental health on the risk of development of depression/anxiety during and after pregnancy was also quite low. The least understood topic was the influence of prenatal mental health on child development, where only one in four participants responded accurately, and over 40% reported that they were unsure or did not know. Finally, our multivariable analyses revealed that the main determinants of both prenatal and postnatal mental health were personal experience with PPD and possessing high levels of ...

Best Practices in Mental Health at Corrections Facilities
Police, court personnel, and correctional staff interact with, stabilize, and treat more persons with mental illness than any other system in America-making criminal justice agencies the largest mental health provider in the United States. Yet a wide gap exists between the training of corrections staff and the enormous responsibility they have for day-to-day management of mental health issues. To narrow this gap in jail and prison settings, the best practices include training programs, screening procedures, communication between staff, and good documentation. Quality mental health services help maintain security by reducing inmate and staff stress levels and helping to facilitate offender participation in rehabilitative programming. They increase the likelihood of successful reintegration of mentally ill offenders into the community by promoting adequate community based mental health care follow-up, thereby contributing to reduced recidivism. By following these best practices, correctional ...

The unknown citizen: epidemiological challenges in child mental health | Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health
Growing concern about the global burden of child mental health disorders has generated an increased interest in population-level efforts to improve child mental health. This in turn has led to a shift in emphasis away from treatment of established disorders and towards prevention and promotion. Prevention efforts are able to draw on a substantial epidemiological literature describing the prevalence and determinants of child mental health disorders. However, there is a striking lack of clearly conceptualised and measurable positive outcomes for child mental health, which may result in missed opportunities to identify optimal policy and intervention strategies. In this paper, we propose an epidemiological approach to child mental health which is in keeping with public health principles and with the WHO definition of health, and which is grounded in current thinking about child development. Constructs such as competence offer the opportunity to develop rigorous outcome measures for epidemiological ...

The influence of mobility on mental health status in young people: The role of area-level deprivation -ORCA
Residential mobility during childhood has been previously associated with poor mental health; however, this association could be mediated by several aspects of moving. This paper investigated the impact of mobility across different levels of area deprivation on the individuals mental health status in Northern Ireland. Mobility towards deprived areas was associated with an elevated risk of reporting poor mental health in both house owners and renters. However, the number of residential moves appeared to be moderating the effect of area change on the individuals mental health. Further exploration of this relationship is warranted through the use of more in-depth mental health measures.. ...
Uncategorized - Mental Health Conscious
Despite the profound importance of mental health to our well-being, many people put little thought into it or regard it as a non-reality. Mental health is an invisible life force, and many people do not see the value in focusing on something that they do not experience with their five senses. They do not think that their mental health really has that much effect on their lives. This is common of people who are in good mental health and never had much of a reason to analyze it, or they have just enough mental health to function and otherwise not question their thought and behavioral patterns. The fact of the matter is, everyone has room to improve their mental health. In fact, having a constant goal of improving on ones mental health is a sign of pinnacle mental health. Everyone needs to be aware that their basic quality of life hinges on the state of their mental health.. One badly needs good mental health for coping with hard times, for example. Hard times strike everyone in the form of ...

Self-reported contacts for mental health problems by rural residents: predicted service needs, facilitators and barriers | BMC...
Rural and remote Australians face a range of barriers to mental health care, potentially limiting the extent to which current services and support networks may provide assistance. This paper examines self-reported mental health problems and contacts during the last 12 months, and explores cross-sectional associations between potential facilitators/barriers and professional and non-professional help-seeking, while taking into account expected associations with socio-demographic and health-related factors. During the 3-year follow-up of the Australian Rural Mental Health Study (ARMHS) a self-report survey was completed by adult rural residents (N = 1,231; 61% female; 77% married; 22% remote location; mean age = 59 years), which examined socio-demographic characteristics, current health status factors, predicted service needs, self-reported professional and non-professional contacts for mental health problems in the last 12 months, other aspects of help-seeking, and perceived barriers.

Most recent papers with the keyword Collaborative mental health care | Read by QxMD
The concept of mental health recovery promotes collaborative partnership among consumers, carers and service providers. However views on mental health recovery are less explored among carers and service providers. The aim of this review was to analyse contemporary literature exploring views of mental health consumers, carers and service providers in relation to their understanding of the meaning of mental health recovery and factors influencing mental health recovery. The literature review questions were: How is mental health recovery and factors influencing mental health recovery viewed by consumers, carers and service providers? What are the differences and similarities in those perceptions? How can the outcomes and recommendations inform the Australian mental health practices? A review of the literature used selected electronic databases and specific search terms and supplemented with manual searching ...
Does stopping smoking improve mental health? | Cochrane
Smoking and mental health Some health providers and people who smoke believe that smoking helps reduce stress and other mental health symptoms, like depression and anxiety. They worry that stopping smoking may make mental health symptoms worse. However, studies have shown that smoking may have a negative impact on peoples mental health, and stopping smoking could reduce anxiety and depression. Why we did this Cochrane Review We wanted to find out how stopping smoking affects peoples mental health. If stopping smoking improves mental health symptoms, rather than worsening them, then this may encourage more people to try to quit smoking and more health professionals to help their patients to quit. It may also discourage people from beginning to smoke tobacco in the first place. What did we do? We searched for studies that lasted for at least six weeks that included people who were smoking at the start of the studies. To be included, studies also had to measure whether people did or did not stop ...
The enduring impact of childhood experience on mental health: evidence using instrumented co-twin data
Downloadable! The question of whether there is a lasting effect of childhood experience on mental health has eluded causal measurement. We draw upon identical twin data and econometric instrumentation to provide an unbiased answer. We find that 55% of a one standard deviation change in mental health due to idiosyncratic experience at age 9 will still be present three years later. Extending the analysis, we find such persistence to vary with age at impact, gender, and mental health sub-categories. This investigation allows us to get a grasp on the degree to which childhood events influence health and socio-economic outcomes by way of their lagged effect on subsequent mental health. A better understanding of the evolution of mental health also helps identifying when mental health issues can be most effectively treated.
Intergenerational patterns of mental health problems: the role of childhood peer status position | BMC Psychiatry | Full Text
Past research has established the intergenerational patterning of mental health: children whose parents have mental health problems are more likely to present with similar problems themselves. However, there is limited knowledge about the extent to which factors related to the childs own social context, such as peer relationships, matter for this patterning. The aim of the current study was to examine the role of childhood peer status positions for the association in mental health across two generations. The data were drawn from a prospective cohort study of 14,608 children born in 1953, followed up until 2016, and their parents. Gender-specific logistic regression analysis was applied. Firstly, we examined the associations between parental mental health problems and childhood peer status, respectively, and the childrens mental health problems in adulthood. Secondly, the variation in the intergenerational patterning of mental health according to peer status position was investigated. The results

SCIE opinion: Mental health and employment in the social care sector (10 October 2011)
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. They say that, among the working age population, nearly one in six people will be experiencing mental health problems such depression or anxiety. There are many figures I could dazzle you with, but heres another that is high up in our briefing: Only between 10% and 20% of people with severe mental health problems are estimated to be in paid ...
How to Diagnose a Mental Health Disorder | Sunrise House
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 ...

Module SXH-3063: Mental Health & Society, Bangor University
This module will introduce students to the main sociological and psychiatric perspectives on mental health and illness. The role of the mental health professions and the changing role of psychiatry will be studied, alongside other associated mental health professions and practitioners. Students will also study the social patterning of mental health and illness, and consider variations according to age, gender, social class and ethnicity. Attention will also be paid to those experiencing mental illness, and the role and influence of representative user groups on mental health policy and legislation will be critically appraised. The module aims to show how our knowledge and understanding of mental illness have changed over time, as well as indicate the problematic nature of the definition of mental illness. This module will also compare formative models of treatment and recovery in the UK with other historical and geographical approaches to mental health and illness, in order to provide a ...

Ottawa pressures provinces on mental health - National Network for Mental Health
thespec.com. December 22, 2016. OTTAWA - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is making a public plea to the provinces to take Ottawa up on its offer to spend more on mental health - even as federal officials were burning up the phone lines behind the scenes to negotiate health funding deals with individual provinces.. In Calgary to talk to business people Wednesday, Trudeau urged mental health advocates to pressure their provincial governments to work with Ottawa on mental health.. He said his government wants to pour billions of dollars into improving mental health services and treatment - money that is desperately needed not just to help those struggling with mental illness but to boost employee productivity in work places across the country.. This is something that we are very, very serious about moving forward on. Weve put historic amounts of money on the table. And we certainly hope that the provinces are going to realize that its time to invest, Trudeau said.. On Monday, provinces and ...
Unhealthy behavior clustering and mental health status in United States college students
Objective: Examine the association of health risk behavior clusters with mental health status among US college students. Participants: 105,781 US college students who completed the Spring 2011 National College Health Assessment. Methods: We utilized the latent class analysis to determine clustering of health risk behaviors (alcohol binge drinking, cigarette/marijuana use, insufficient physical activity, and fruit/vegetable consumption), and chi-square and ANOVA analyses to examine associations between the class membership and mental health (mental health diagnoses, psychological symptoms, and self-injurious thoughts/behaviors). Results: Three classes were identified with differing rates of binge drinking, substance use, and insufficient physical activity but similar rates of insufficient fruit/vegetable consumption. Students classified with the highest rates of binge drinking and cigarette/marijuana use had the highest rates across all mental health variables compared to other classes. ...
Just Policy Blog: Lets Give Kids Better Mental Health
I was struck by the fact that these kids know they are not getting the help they need. They are discerning of what their problems are and what they need to begin recovery. What lingered in my mind was …maybe even invest in psychologists. Sadness pervades their words: they can be helped but it seems to be too much trouble. These youth are not demanding what they need - they seem to hardly believe they deserve it. But, they do. They deserve an investment in psychologists. They deserve a system that understands the challenges theyve faced. They deserve a community that cares and will provide the support they need to recover and thrive. Mental health problems are treatable. Whatever the challenges youth have faced that have resulted in poor mental health, they can still be helped into becoming citizens of pride and productivity ...

Mmegi Online :: BONMEH advocates workplace mental health policies
That is why Botswana Network for Mental Health (BONMEH) has called on the business community in Botswana to have comprehensive mental health policies.. According to BONMEH spokesperson, Charity Kennedy, these mental health problems have a direct impact on workplaces through increased absenteeism, reduced productivity, and increased costs.. She said this at a media briefing on Mental Health at the Workplace, which was held in Gaborone recently.. She said that mental health problems were the result of a complex interplay between biological, psychological, social and environmental factors.. Kennedy added that there was increasing evidence that both the content and context of work can play a role in the development of mental health problems in the workplace.. I emphasise that it is important for every company to have comprehensive mental health policies.. I believe that as much as we do have physical first aid, let there be allowance for counselling for employees. If possible, let workplaces have ...

Three aspects of mobility were considered: (a) number of house moves from birth to ,2years, 2 to ,5years and 5 to 9years; (b) lifetime number of house moves; and (c) moves associated with different housing trajectories characterized by changes in housing tenure. The primary outcomes were ...

Department of Health | 2.2 Mental health promotion
Successful mental health promotion ideally combines an approach that involves many different government agencies and community organisations to deliver coordinated programs at the individual, community and system levels. Much of the effort in mental health promotion needs to occur beyond the healthcare system, in sectors that impact on the daily lives of individuals and communities to support the development of resilience and maintenance of mental well being. These include housing, education, employment, welfare and justice. In the health sector, mental health promotion should be incorporated into the activities of general health promotion units. Mental health services should also adopt a recovery-oriented approach and deliver services in a respectful and non-judgemental manner ...
Mental health in young Australians: a longitudinal study
This article discusses patterns in mental health of young Australians from age 19 through 25 and explores changes in mental health over these years. Data are derived from five waves of the Australian Life Patterns longitudinal study. The outcome variable in focus was self-reported mental health. Analyses were conducted in two steps using linear mixed models with both fixed and random effects. The analysis shows a negative linear trend in mental health status. The mental health of women was worse than that of men though a negative trend was found in both men and women. Though high socio-economic status (SES) individuals reported best mental health compared to their mid and low-SES peers, a negative trend was identified for them as well as for mid-SES participants. There is weak support for a negative trend among those of low-SES backgrounds. The study adds to evidence that there is a negative trend in mental health in young Australians but that this trend is not uniform across all young people. ...
Experience of mental health diagnosis and perceived misdiagnosis in autistic, possibly autistic and non-autistic adults -...
|jats:p| Previous research shows that autistic people have high levels of co-occurring mental health conditions. Yet, a number of case reports have revealed that mental health conditions are often misdiagnosed in autistic individuals. A total of 420 adults who identified as autistic, possibly autistic or non-autistic completed an online survey consisting of questions regarding mental health diagnoses they received, whether they agreed with those diagnoses and if not why. Autistic and possibly autistic participants were more likely to report receiving mental health diagnoses compared to non-autistic participants, but were less likely to agree with those diagnoses. Thematic analysis revealed the participants main reasons for disagreement were that (1) they felt their autism characteristics were being confused with mental health conditions by healthcare professionals and (2) they perceived their own mental health difficulties to be resultant of ASC. Participants attributed these to the clinical barriers
Mental Health Disorders in Parents: The Affects on Children and Youth Essay - Free Summaries Examples
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 ...
Is temporary employment a cause or consequence of poor mental health?
Downloadable! Mental health status often has a strong association with labour market outcomes. If people in temporary employment have poorer mental health than those in permanent employment then it is consistent with two mutually inclusive possibilities: temporary employment generates adverse mental health effects and/or individuals with poorer mental health select into temporary from permanent employment. We reveal that permanent workers with poor mental health appear to select into temporary employment thus signalling that prior cross sectional studies may overestimate the influence of employment type on mental health. We also reveal that this selection effect is significantly mitigated by job satisfaction.
Mental Health Week & World Mental Health Day | MS Australia
Mental health issues are common for people living with MS. In fact, around half of people diagnosed will experience a depressive episode (which is three times higher than for the general population).. On the occasion of National Mental Health Week and World Mental Health Day, its timely to highlight such a vital issue for the MS community.. Organisations and governments in Australia mark Mental Health Week (Sunday 8th to Saturday 14th October) in different ways with diverse themes, events and tips, so check whats on in your local area and see how you can take part. For example Mental Health Foundation Australia (Victoria)s theme is Mental Health in the Workplace and SANE Australias focus is on men and mental health..

Multiple births and maternal mental health from pregnancy to 5 years after birth: a longitudinal population-based cohort study
Background: There is a lack of population-based studies on multiple births and maternal mental health. Having a high-risk pregnancy by bearing two or more children is a stressful life event, and the challenges of parenting two or more children probably also lead to a high level of parental stress. There are a few results on multiple births and maternal mental health from studies on in vitro fertilization samples. The only previous cohort study on multiple birth and maternal mental health included a single measure of depressive symptoms at 9 months postpartum. We aim to estimate the relative risk for depression and anxiety after multiple birth in a population-based prospective cohort study while adjusting for factors prior and subsequent to fertilization. Methods: We used data from 87,807 pregnancies included in the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort study. Information on multiple birth was retrieved from the Norwegian Medical Birth Registry, and maternal mental health was assessed at 17th and ...
Dr. Jason DeCaro publishes Household-level Predictors of Maternal Mental Health and Systemic Inflammation among Infants in...
Objectives: Household conditions and culturally/socially variable childcare practices influence priming of the inflammatory response during infancy. Maternal mental health may partially mediate that effect. Among mother- infant dyads in Mwanza, Tanzania, we hypothesized that poorer maternal mental health would be associated with adverse household ecology, lower social capital, and greater inflammation among infants under the age of one; and that mental health would mediate any effects of household ecology/social capital on inflammation. Methods: We collected dried blood spots from mother-infant dyads (N588) at health centers near Mwanza, Tanzania. To assess household ecology and social capital, we conducted interviews with mothers using the Household Food Insecurity Access Scale, the MacArthur Subjective Social Status Scale, and a household wealth inventory. We employed the Hopkins Symptom Checklist to assess maternal mental health. A high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (CRP) assay was used to ...
Mental health payment by results tariff stalled | Community Care
Creating an NHS payment by results tariff for mental health services remains a challenge which mental health trusts and service commissioners have failed to address, according to the NHS Confederation.. A survey published today by the NHS Confederations mental health network found that half of all mental health trusts have not yet begun to devise a tariff for mental health. The report predicts that it is unlikely the Department of Health deadline to run all mental health services on payment by results from the beginning of 2012-13 will be met.. At more than £11bn pounds per year, more NHS money is spent on mental health than any other single group of conditions and illnesses.. DH guidance issued earlier this year said trusts should be able to categorise their adult mental health services into 21 clusters by 31 December. This is intended to be the basis for agreeing local prices for 2012-13.. What do you think? Join the debate on CareSpace Keep up to date with the latest developments in ...
Businesses must increase focus on mental health issues - Personnel Today
Large employers need to prioritise mental health as a boardroom issue, putting it on a par with physical health, according to a report by mental health charity Mind.. The Taking care of business study, published in September, was the result of a summit held in May, attended by a range of leading employers and co-hosted by health provider AXA ICAS.. Key recommendations include ensuring staff mental wellbeing is being monitored and reported back to the board. Employers, too, need to be creating an open, supportive workplace and introducing employee assistance programmes (EAPs), with smaller businesses being encouraged to explore pooling resources locally to share the costs.. The report also urged the Government to retain the tax-exempt status of EAPs as welfare counselling and explore other financial incentives to encourage employers to prioritise mental health at work.. Ministers, it argued, also needed to explore how to improve the way GPs used fit notes, including examining how to increase ...

Concerns raised after mental health funding cut by £20million in past five years | The Leamington Observer
CONCERNS have been raised after it was revealed local mental health funding has been cut by nearly £20million.. The Royal College of Psyciatrists says Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust (CWPT) is one of nine mental health trusts across the UK to suffer a year-on-year decline in its income. In the past five years the trust has seen its income fall by nearly £20million. This leaves the sector with £200million to spend on mental health services each year.. Warwick and Leamington MP Matt Western is now calling for better funding for mental health services in the area.. He said: I want people to be able to get the best possible mental health treatment when they need it, and where they need it. I am calling on government to fund our mental health services properly.. For our local mental health trust to have had their funding cut every year for five years goes completely against governments plans to properly fund mental health services. This news comes as demand for services soars, ...
Association of work-related stress with mental health problems in a special police force unit | BMJ Open
This study investigated the association between a condition of job distress and the presence of self-reported mental health symptoms, in a special police force unit while controlling for sociodemographical, occupational and personality variables. Results from multiple regression analyses showed that sociodemographical and occupational variables accounted for a negligible proportion of variance of mental health problems, although, consistently with a previous study on the same cohort35 higher length of employment, lower rank, being barracked and not having children were significant predictors of higher symptomatology. Emotional stability was a significant predictor for all the measures of mental health problems, which was expected given the large body of research that has shown that this trait is associated with several mental disorders and physical health problems, and that this is not an artefact of the overlapping of some symptoms with questionnaire items.52 Lower levels of agreeableness (eg, ...
Experts raise alarm on rising global mental health disorders. - DailyCast-NG
We treat 36, 000 cases yearly, says Ogun Psychiatric Hospital. Experts have raised fresh alarm over the rise in mental health disorders in every country of the world, which they said are expected to cost the global economy £12 trillion yearly by 2030.. Authors of a new report published yesterday in The Lancet to mark the World Mental Health Day (WMHD), revealed that depression and anxiety were on the rise in all countries of the world.. The report was put together by 28 experts of The Lancet Commission on Global Mental Health and Sustainable Development and launched at the first Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit in London, United Kingdom (UK).. Collective failure to respond to this global health crisis will result in huge loss of human capabilities and avoidable suffering. Young people who often struggle most with mental health issues are the primary focus for the 2018 WMHD with the theme: Young People and Mental Health in a Changing World, the report stated.. Also, another new study ...
National Mental Health Awareness Month | The Examiner
Across the nation and here in Southeast Texas, people are looking at mental health and healthcare in honor of National Mental Health Awareness Month, May 2013.. Today, tens of millions of Americans are living with the burden of a mental health problem, President Barack Obama said in a statement proclaiming May as National Mental Health Month. They shoulder conditions like depression and anxiety, post-traumatic stress and bipolar disorder - debilitating illnesses that can strain every part of a persons life. And even though help is out there, less than half of children and adults with diagnosable mental health problems receive treatment. During National Mental Health Awareness Month, we shine a light on these issues, stand with men and women in need, and redouble our efforts to address mental health problems in America.. Recent incidents around the area have brought mental health to the forefront of peoples minds. In particular, the arrest of one Nederland man who allegedly shot and killed ...
Mental Health and Diving - DIVER magazine
diving activities.. All divers must be able to think clearly, make sound decisions, and effectively manage events occurring around and during diving activities. It is incumbent upon them to ensure that their participation is safe. This includes reflecting on their mental and physical state before every dive. The stigma and discrimination related to mental health problems can present a barrier to speaking about mental health issues. For divers, these fears can include being denied a medical fitness certificate or being rejected by a dive buddy or group. However, withholding information regarding mental health issues can put both divers and their partners at greater risk.. Mental health conditions can affect anyone, regardless of age, income, or culture. It is estimated that 20% of the worldwide population lives with a mental health condition. Although there are no known data, divers are likely to be similarly affected by such conditions as non-divers. Open communication about mental health ...

Mental health counselor - Wikipedia
Licensing requirements can vary depending on which state a mental health counselor practices in. Across the United States, mental health counseling licensure is required to independently practice, but can be practiced without a license if under close supervision of a licensed practitioner. Licensing titles for mental health counselors vary from state to state: Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC), and various forms of these titles may list differently per state statues. The title Mental Health Counselor (or variation thereof) is often a protected title and thus it may be a violation of state law for persons to hold themselves as such without a proper credential. A licensed mental health counselor holds a minimum of a masters degree in counseling or another closely related field in mental health care. After obtaining a masters degree, mental health counselors complete two to three years (depending on ...
talks.cam : Challenges and Opportunities in Exploiting Reconsolidation to Treat Mental Health 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 ...

Protective factors for child development at age 2 in the presence of poor maternal mental health: results from the All Our...
Using a community sample of mothers and children in a major urban centre in Canada, this study described developmental problems at age 2 and identified protective factors for developmental problems in a subgroup of families with maternal mental health risk. Maternal mental health risk was common, affecting 27% of women in our sample, which is similar to previously reported rates of 25%.12. Poor sleep habits have previously been linked to poor child developmental outcomes including child behaviour problems,30 poorer learning capacity and academic performance.31 Our findings extend this research by identifying that good sleep habits may act as a protective factor for child social-emotional and behavioural development when mothers are experiencing poor mental health. It is hypothesised that having a child who sleeps well provides mothers, especially those with mental health concerns, with a reprieve from the demands of caring for a young child. Consequently, educating and providing parents with ...

Mental health professionals, NGOs and a variety of service-user groups have all called for greater funding for local and global mental health services, as well as for greater parity of esteem between these services and broader health policy and service provision in the UK. The Mental Health Taskforces 2016 report details the need to address chronic under-spending on mental health services in the UK as demand continues to increase and inequalities widen. NHS spending is increasing in areas that support a medicalised response to mental health issues, with prescriptions for antidepressant medication doubling over the last decade in the UK. The taskforces report recommends a billion-pound investment in 2020/21 and calls for fresh thinking to shift cultural attitudes that stigmatise mental ill health as an individualised problem. Recently Theresa May announced a review of ...
FSU researcher improving maternal mental health outcomes in Florida - Florida State University News
About 15 percent of all mothers in Florida report experiencing depression during pregnancy or after childbirth, but fewer than 20 percent of mothers seek or have access to professional help. Much of the problem lies in the lack of routine screening by prenatal care providers.. A new grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration aims to improve maternal mental health outcomes by increasing screening rates and patient access to treatment and resources. Florida is one of seven states to receive the grant, which was awarded to the Florida Department of Health.. The FDOH partnered with FSU College of Medicine Professor and Vice Chair for Research Heather Flynn as principal investigator on the $3.25 million grant. She received $2 million from the agency to help develop a sustainable screening and treatment model to address unmet maternal mental health needs across the state.. This is a huge opportunity for Florida to start really addressing perinatal mental health and substance abuse, ...

Real-terms funding cut to childrens mental health services revealed | Community Care
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 ...
Mental health training for primary health care workers and implication for success of integration of mental health into primary...
Mental disorders are always remained a neglected public health problems in low and middle-income countries (LMICs), most people with mental disorders never receive effective care and there is a large treatment gap. In order to solve the problem integration of mental health into primary health care is recommended and in Ethiopia implementation of the scale of mental health services at primary health care level was started in 2014. For the success of the integration of mental health into primary health care, primary care health professionals are the key personnel who are responsible for the management of mental, neurologic and substance use disorders. However, proper training and education of primary care health professionals is mandatory for an optimal performance and success of integration. This interventional study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of mental health training course for scale up of mental health services at primary health care level in Ethiopia. This quasi-experimental pre- and
500k to improve first response mental health services
However, we never associate a person being sick to a mental health issue, CEO Satish Kannan said in the statement. It is estimated that only about a quarter of people with a mental health problem in the United Kingdom receive ongoing treatment, leaving the majority of people grappling with mental health issues on their own, seeking help or information, and dependent on the informal support of family, friends or colleagues.. NHS England has now published new guidelines to help Global Positioning System better identify the signs of anxiety and depression as well as a range of mental health problems, including those which specifically affect older people.. Severe staff shortages mean fewer mental health nurses to deal with a rising number of users with complex needs, Sara Gorton, Unisons head of health, told the Guardian. World Health Organization forecasts that the prevalence of depression, as one of the more prominent mental illnesses, will increase.. Separate studies have also shown that ...
Survey presents a worrying picture of childrens and young peoples mental health | The Health Foundation
Commenting on NHS Digitals survey, Mental Health of Children and Young People in England, 2020, Martina Kane, policy lead for the Health Foundations Young peoples future health inquiry, said:. Todays findings present a worrying picture of the effect of young peoples everyday circumstances, such as their familys finances, on their mental health. The survey found that children with mental health concerns were more than twice as likely to live in a household that had fallen behind with payments. Young people with existing mental health problems also reported that lockdown had made their life worse. This would have coincided with closures or reduction of key services, including mental health services and youth services. There must be immediate, targeted action to support the most vulnerable, including children and young people with an existing mental health condition. Longer term, a cross government strategy is needed which recognises the impact of peoples circumstances on their long term ...
Mental Health Disorders May Shorten Life Span: Study
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 ...

Livability | Livability joins with Christian mental health charity to combat stigma in churches
Livability and Premier Mind and Soul, a Christian mental health charity, have combined to create a new resource to help churches better understand people with mental health needs in their congregations.. What is it?. The online resource aims to equip churches with relevant theological, psychological and medical knowledge in response to the growing demand from churches to better understand mental health issues and to provide greater access and support. With contributions from a number of experts including Rev Will van der Hart, Dr Kate Middleton, Dr Rob Waller and Jonathan Clark it contains some valuable professional insight.. According to statistics, 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health issue each year, with 11% of British women taking anti-depression medication daily. Other evidence also suggests that Christians with mental health needs have found that churches they attend are relatively ill-equipped to support them. The online resource suggests effective ways that local churches can ...

As part of the Administrations ongoing commitment to help individuals experiencing mental health problems, today Vice President Biden announced that $100 million will soon be available to increase access to mental health services and improve mental health facilities.

The President and I have made it a priority to do everything we can to make it easier to access mental health services, and todays announcements by the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services and Agriculture build on that commitment, said Vice President Biden. Over the past several years, the Administration has taken steps to reduce the stigma associated with seeking help for mental illness, and to ensure that millions of Americans have access to health insurance that covers mental health and substance abuse disorder services at parity with medical and surgical benefits.

No, your cat isnt a threat to your mental health - WVVA TV Bluefield Beckley WV News, Weather and Sports
HealthDay News) -- Cat owners can breathe a sigh of relief: Your felines litter box likely wont put your familys mental health at risk.. New British research challenges earlier beliefs that parasites in cat droppings might be linked to schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder and other mental health issues.. The message for cat owners is clear: There is no evidence that cats pose a risk to childrens mental health, said study author Dr. Francesca Solmi, of University College London Psychiatry.. Cats are carriers of an infectious parasite called Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii). They may pass this infection on to humans through their feces. The researchers behind this study wanted to know if contact with cats during childhood raised risk for mental illness.. To find out, the researchers followed nearly 5,000 people born in the early 1990s until they were 18 years old. Specifically, the study looked at whether the participants mothers had a cat during pregnancy or if the participants grew ...
Attitudes towards mental health and the integration of mental health services into primary health care : a cross-sectional...
Background: Cambodia is a country where the resources for treating mental health disorders are far from sufficient. One strategy to narrow the treatment gap is to integrate mental health into primary health care (PHC). Understanding the knowledge and attitudes towards mental health integration that health-care workers have is important for assessing the challenges and opportunities when planning a potential integration project. Objective: The aim of this study was to assess these basic conditions in Lvea Em District, Cambodia. Design: A structured self-reporting questionnaire regarding attitudes and knowledge about mental health and its integration into PHC was collected from 75 health-care workers in Lvea Em District, Cambodia in October 2015. Firstly, descriptive analyses were carried out, and secondly, linear regression analyses to assess the relationship between attitudes and socio-demographic variables were conducted. Results: There was clear support towards integrating mental health ...
Children and young peoples mental health services
3.22. Mental health problems often develop early and, between the ages of 5-15, one in every nine children has a mental disorder . Half of all mental health problems are established by the age of 14, with three quarters established by 24 years of age . Prompt access to appropriate support enables children and young people experiencing difficulties to maximise their prospects for a healthy and happy life. While the latest prevalence survey has shown only a modest increase in diagnosable problems since 2004 - from 10.1% to 11.2% - this overall figure includes concerning rates of mental distress particularly amongst late teenage girls .. 3.23. We are delivering on our commitments to expand mental health services for children and young people. The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health set out plans for improving mental health services so 70,000 more children and young people will access treatment each year by 2020/21. Access is rising in line with our plans and, in 2017/18, around ...
Size matters - determinants of modern, community-oriented mental health services
Governances, structures and contents of mental health services are being reformed across countries. There is a need for data to support those changes. The aim of this study was to explore the quality, i.e., diversity and community orientation, and quantity, i.e., personnel resources, of mental health and substance abuse services (MHS) and evaluate correlation between population needs and quality and quantity of MHS. The European Service Mapping Schedule-Revised (ESMS-R) was used to classify mental health and substance abuse services in southern Finland. Municipal-level aggregate data, local data on unemployment rate, length of education, age of retirement, proportion of single households, alcohol sales and a composite mental health index were used as indicators of population mental health needs. Population size correlated strongly with service diversity, explaining 84% of the variance. Personnel resources did not associate with diversity or community orientation. The indicators of mental health ...
Human Services Career Network - Research Articles - NMHA Issues Challenge to Presidents Mental Health Commission
Sunday, August 11, 2002. NMHA Issues Challenge to Presidents Mental Health Commission. End Systemic Discrimination in Public Mental Health Services. ALEXANDRIA, Va. (August 8, 2002) - In testimony given today, NMHA President and CEO Mike Faenza challenged the Presidents New Freedom Commission on Mental Health to end systemic discrimination in public mental health services. NMHA believes that to effectively treat all mental health consumers, they must have access to culturally appropriate services that take into account language barriers, cultural differences and diverse beliefs, values and sexual orientations.. It is time for Americas mental health system to go beyond the rhetoric and understand that consumer oriented necessarily means culturally appropriate, said Faenza. Unfortunately, the discrimination and misunderstanding that result from cultural incompetence within the delivery system erects barriers to service. As a result, many diverse groups with mental illness are left ...
