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

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

Behavioral health benefits in employer-sponsored health plans, 1997. (2/1841)

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. (3/1841)

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)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 ...

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 ...
Although family caregivers of patients with lung and other cancers show high rates of psychological distress, they underuse mental health services. This qualitative study aimed to identify barriers to mental health service use among 21 distressed family caregivers of lung cancer patients. Caregivers had not received mental health services during the patients initial months of care at a comprehensive cancer centre in New York City. Thematic analysis of interview data was framed by Andersens model of health service use and Corrigans stigma theory. Results of our analysis expand Andersens model by providing a description of need variables (e.g. psychiatric symptoms), enabling factors (e.g. finances), and psychosocial factors associated with caregivers non-use of mental health services. Regarding psychosocial factors, caregivers expressed negative perceptions of mental health professionals and a desire for independent management of emotional concerns. Additionally, caregivers perceived a ...
The Washington State Mental Health Services Cost Offset and Client Outcome Study examined the effects of publicly funded mental health care on client medical costs, mortality, and criminal justice outcomes. Providing outpatient mental health treatment to aged, blind, and disabled clients in the Medicaid or GA-U programs was found to reduce their subsequent medical costs,
Background: Research supports robust associations between childhood bullying victimisation and mental health problems in childhood/adolescence and emerging evidence shows the impact can persist into adulthood. We examined the impact of bullying victimisation on mental health service use from childhood to midlife. Methods: We performed secondary analysis using the National Child Development Study, the 1958 British Birth Cohort study. We conducted analyses on 9,242 participants with complete data on childhood bullying victimisation and service use at midlife. We used multivariable logistic regression models to examine associations between childhood bullying victimisation and mental health service use ages 16, 23, 33, 42 and 50. We estimated incidence and persistence of mental health service use over time to age 50. Results: Compared to participants who were not bullied in childhood, those who were frequently bullied were more likely to use mental health services in childhood and adolescence (OR: ...
In April, the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee voted unanimously to advance S. 2680, the Mental Health Reform Act of 2016. This fall, Congress will have the ability to bring this legislation to a floor vote and finally make meaningful improvements to the mental health care system. This legislation will strengthen federal coordination of mental health resources, increase reporting on mental health parity, advance integrated service delivery, support the mental health workforce, and increase early access to mental health services. Between Monday, August 29, and Friday, September 2, the National HCH Council is joining a coordinated advocacy campaign with many national advocacy groups to urge Senators to take up and pass S. 2680 ...

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 ...
Existing law, the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), an initiative measure enacted by the voters as Proposition 63 at the November 2, 2004, statewide general election, establishes the continuously appropriated Mental Health Services Fund to fund various county mental health programs. The act also requires funds to be reserved for the costs for the State Department of Health Care Services, the California Mental Health Planning Council, the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD), the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission, the State Department of Public Health, and any other state agency to implement all duties pursuant to certain programs provided for by the act, subject to appropriation in the annual Budget Act. The act provides that it may be amended by the Legislature by a 2/3 vote of each house as long as the amendment is consistent with, and furthers the intent of, the act, and that the Legislature may also clarify procedures and terms of the act ...
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 ...

UNC Mental Health Specialists is a payment at the time of service practice operating under a separate federal tax ID number from our other P&A clinics. Patients are expected to pay in-full at the time of each visit. No third-party payer is accepted, although patients will receive a statement for services rendered that will include diagnosis and treatment codes, which patients can then use to file for insurance reimbursement if they so choose. Because the UNC Mental Health Specialists clinics do not accept third-party assignment, services cannot be provided to Medicare and Medicaid patients at either our Conner Drive clinic in Chapel Hill or the Rex location. In addition, the practice does not participate in the Health Care System patient financial assistance program. Medicare and Medicaid patients may receive evaluations and treatment through Psychiatry outpatient clinics at the UNC Neurosciences Hospital.. ...
National mental health policy identifies personal recovery as the intended orientation of mental health services [1]. Our review indicates that a shift from the dominant clinical recovery paradigm to personal recovery is underway, but not complete. However, the emergence of a new service-defined understanding of recovery has unknown implications for mental health systems. The clear differentiation between different understandings of recovery held by staff provides a framework for assessing the recovery orientation of mental health services and can be used to develop accreditation criteria and fidelity indicators.. Given the absence of nationally endorsed clinical guidelines for recovery-orientated care, it is not surprising that management tools and process indicators (throughput, discharge etc.) have been used by organisations to define recovery [10]. However, this attempt to operationalise recovery through the lens of organisational priorities has been criticised, both by people working in ...
The Department, leaded by Professor Miguel Xavier, has an extensive experience on research in the areas of psychiatric epidemiology and mental health policy and services, including the integration of mental health care in primary care settings, and conducted most of the key studies on psychiatric epidemiology and mental health services research in the country (e.g. the national mental health survey and several European studies on the effectiveness of policy and services). The Department has extensively collaborated with the Portuguese government concerning the development of the Portuguese mental health legislation, policies and plans, as well as with the WHO, European Union and other international organizations. The faculty includes, among other visiting associate members, Professor Gabriel Ivbijaro, a world leading reference on primary care mental health, an authority in mental health advocacy and the Medical Director of the Waltham Forest Community & Family Health Services (London, ...
Post-stroke healthcare consumption is strongly associated with a mental health diagnosis. This study aimed to identify stroke patients who utilised mental healthcare facilities, explored their mental healthcare consumption pre-stroke and post-stroke, and examined possible predictors of costs incurred by mental healthcare consumption post-stroke. Three databases were integrated, namely the Maastricht University Medical Centre (MUMC) Medical Administration, the Stroke Registry from the Department of Neurology at MUMC, and the Psychiatric Case Registry South-Limburg. Patients from the MUMC who suffered their first-ever stroke between January 1 2000 and December 31 2004 were included and their records were analysed for mental healthcare consumption from 5 years preceding to 5 years following their stroke (1995-2009). Regression analysis was conducted to identify possible predictors of mental healthcare consumption costs. A total of 1385 patients were included and 357 (25.8%) received services from a mental
The effect of racism and racial trauma on mental health is real and cannot be ignored. The disparity in access to mental health care in communities of color cannot be ignored. The inequality and lack of cultural competency in mental health treatment cannot be ignored. Our nations African American community is going through an extremely painful experience, pain that has been inflicted upon this community repeatedly throughout history and is magnified by mass media and repeated deaths. We stand with all the families, friends and communities who have lost loved ones senselessly due to racism. And, with more than 100,000 lives lost to the coronavirus pandemic - disproportionately from minority communities - these recent deaths add gasoline to the fire of injustice. While there is much we need to do to address racism in our country, we must not forget the importance of mental health as we do so. Racism is a public health crisis. As the nations largest grassroots mental health organization, it is ...

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 fact that less than half of children and adults with diagnosable mental health problems receive the treatment they need is unacceptable. 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. Also, the ...

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, ...

Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO identified the types of mental health services offered under state Medicaid programs.GAO found that: (1) several federal agencies published data concerning state expenditures and the number of service recipients, but did not publish much specific information concerning available mental health services; and (2) various private organizations published detailed information about the mental health services available to Medicaid recipients.
Staff in the Department of Health and Ageing are drafting a 10-year roadmap for national mental health reform, which is scheduled for preliminary consideration by a meeting of senior CoAG officials on Friday.. Psychiatrist Professor Alan Rosen urges that the process not be rushed, ahead of the establishment of the National Mental Health Commission.. (Continuing a Croakey series on mental health reform…). Alan Rosen writes:. Apart from some real national initiatives in early prevention and intervention of mental illnesses in young folk, the crowning glories of the Federal Governments May 2011 budget enhancements for mental health were threefold.. Firstly, the rushed development over the last few months (to be considered for adoption by all CoAG jurisdictions by mid-December) of a 10-year roadmap for the future.. Secondly, the instigation of a national mental health commission (MHC) by January 1st 2012.. Thirdly, a bunch of flexible care packages and coordination teams for extended mental ...

3.22. Mental health problems often develop early and, between the ages of 5-15, one in every nine children has a mental disorder [90]. Half of all mental health problems are established by the age of 14, with three quarters established by 24 years of age [91]. 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 [92].. 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 ...

Pediatric mental health emergencies constitute a large and growing segment of pediatric emergency medical care. Emergency departments (EDs) play a critical role in the evaluation and management of child and adolescent patients with mental health emergencies. Community mental health resources have diminished and, in some regions, even disappeared through inpatient bed shortages, private and public health insurance changes, reorganization of state mental health programs, and shortages of pediatric-trained mental health specialists. These changes have resulted in critical shortages of inpatient and outpatient mental health services for children.1 The ED has increasingly become the safety net for a fragmented mental health infrastructure in which the needs of children and adolescents, among the most vulnerable populations, have been insufficiently addressed.. ED staff must safely, humanely, and in a culturally sensitive manner manage patients with exacerbations of known diagnosed mental illnesses as ...
OBJECTIVES: Serious mental illness is common among those who have experienced a physical workplace injury, yet little is known about mental health service use in this population. This study aims to estimate the proportion of the workplace musculoskeletal injury population experiencing a mental illness, the proportion who access mental health services through the workers compensation system and the factors associated with likelihood of accessing services. METHODS: A longitudinal cohort study was conducted with a random sample of 615 workers compensation claimants followed over three survey waves between June 2014 and July 2015. The primary outcome was receiving any type of mental health service use during this period, as determined by linking survey responses to administrative compensation system records for the 18 months after initial interview. RESULTS: Of 181 (29.4%) participants who met the case definition for a serious mental illness at one or more of the three interviews, 75 (41.4%) ...
Continuing a history of inequity, private insurers have placed restrictions and limitations on coverage for mental health conditions making access to treatment services increasingly more challenging. A state-by-state advocacy movement has led to the enactment of various state laws to require mental health parity. With the Clinton Administrations attempt at health care reform, mental health parity became part of the health reform debate and led to the passage of the Mental Health Parity Act of 1996. The inadequacies of this law were partially corrected in the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008, which included mandated coverage for substance use conditions. The Obama Administration in 2011 included these provisions in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which does not require compliance monitoring nor does it provide a definition for

Persons with schizophrenia and related disorders may be particularly sensitive to a number of determinants of service use, including those related with illness, socio-demographic characteristics and organizational factors. The objective of this study is to identify factors associated with outpatient contacts at community mental health services of patients with schizophrenia or related disorders. This cross-sectional study analyzed 1097 patients. The main outcome measure was the total number of outpatient consultations during one year. Independent variables were related to socio-demographic, clinical and use of service factors. Data were collected from clinical records. The multilevel linear regression model explained 46.35% of the variance. Patients with significantly more contacts with ambulatory services were not working and were receiving welfare benefits (p = 0.02), had no formal education (p = 0.02), had a global level of severity of two or three (four being the most severe) (p | 0.001), with one
Left untreated, mental health and substance use disorders can be debilitating and life-threatening. Parity laws are federal and state regulations that remove limits imposed by health insurers on access to mental health benefits that are more restrictive than those imposed on medical and surgical benefits.. Prior to 1996, many Americans paid for health insurance that often did not recognize that treatment for mental health and substance use disorders is as essential as other medical treatments. The Mental Health Parity Act of 1996 required that large group health plans could not impose annual or lifetime dollar limits on mental health benefits that were less favorable than the limits imposed on medical and surgical benefits. Since then, more federal laws related to mental health parity have been passed.. For example, an important provision of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Mental Health and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) in 2008, ensures that health insurance plans treat mental health and ...

Background: As mental illness continues to affect 1 in 5 individuals, and the need for support has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic, the promise of digital mental health tools remains largely unrealized due to a lack of uptake by patients and providers. Currently, most efforts on supporting the uptake of digital mental health tools remain fragmented across organizations and geography. There is a critical need to synthesize these efforts in order to provide a coordinated strategy of supporting the adoption of digital mental health tools. Objective: The specific aim of this project is to develop a web-based resource document to support the engagement of mental health providers and patients in the use of digital mental health tools. Methods: The web-based resource was developed using a multimethod approach. A grey literature review was conducted in 2019 to identify relevant toolkits that are available in the public domain. This was supplemented with an environmental scan where individuals with

The Act aims to equalize insurance-related financial requirements and treatment options for employees with mental health conditions and those with substance use disorders.

The final rules and regulations for the Mental Health Parity Act were released in 2013. This guide is meant to serve as a reference for employers who offer mental health-related benefits as part of their employer health plan. The full guide is available from the Partnership for Workplace Mental Health website. ...

In Western nations, the Recovery approach has become a widely accepted philosophy and treatment concept in mental health. Yet, community understanding of the Recovery approach remains largely unexplored. This study aimed to investigate (i) peoples awareness of the principles underpinning the Recovery approach in mental health, and (ii) the treatment approaches people consider most important, and whether these align with the Recovery approach. To achieve these aims, a random sample of 1217 Australian adults participated in the National Social Survey (QSS) via telephone interview. Peoples experience with mental health services, the importance they place on various treatment approaches, and their awareness of principles underpinning the Recovery approach were assessed. Analyses were conducted using descriptive statistics. Most participants (94%) agreed that regardless of the severity of symptoms experienced and/or the mental illness diagnosis, being diagnosed with a mental illness means there is ...

Recent reports in the media/from interested bodies have highlighted concerns about mental health provision in England.. There are several articles in the media which highlight that mentally ill people no longer have faith in the NHS Mental Health Services in England. An example is the publication of the case published in the Guardian Newspaper in January 2016 where a father was severely depressed for many years. He had suicidal thoughts for many years and felt that there was no one to help him.. Another headline on BBC news in February 2016 emphasises again on the failure of the mental health services with the BBC reporting that a review by The Independent Commission has found that access to care for mentally ill patients is inadequate nationally and that mental health remains a neglected service.. Fundamental Facts about Mental Health paper shows that in any year one in four people experiences a mental health problem. Three quarters of people with mental health problems receive no treatment at ...
R3 Continuum. Recently, mental health parity dodged a bullet, along with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). But what happens next remains uncertain. Heres why it matters to the nation, and why employers should care.. In 1996, the Mental Health Parity Act (MHPA) first mandated MHP in group health insurance. The MHPA applied to employer-sponsored group health plans with 50 employees or more. It was a good step toward improving access to mental health care, but it didnt mandate mental health benefits, instead only preventing different fee structures if mental health benefits were offered. In addition, it was relatively easy for employers to argue a financial hardship, and so qualify for an exemption. It made little practical difference, ultimately. For all that it was a bellwether, few additional benefits were actually made available on a federal level.. Nevertheless, from 1991 through 2008, a dozen states introduced state-level versions of parity, with a surprising outcome; in most states, total ...
About one in five American adults experiences mental illness annually and one in 20 lives with a serious mental health condition such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or major depression that impairs their ability to function. Despite the high prevalence of mental health disorders, a strong societal stigma still exists due in large part due to a shortfall in dissemination of accurate educational information and associated widespread misunderstanding. Many people do not seek mental health services or are unaware their symptoms could indicate a mental illness. At COPAC, we believe well-researched educational resources help individuals and families recognize they have a problem and receive the mental health support they need.. Our educational articles cover a broad range of topics - from emotional problems to serious, clinically diagnosable disorders requiring inpatient treatment. They also reflect the high incidence of co-occurring substance use disorders, mood disorders and behavioral ...
This thesis is my autoethnographic account as I pursue a career as a Service User Representative with the Dorset Mental Health Forum over several years leading up to 2010. This is a period of change in both the social care and health worlds as they impact on to people suffering from mental distress. In this period are introduced Personal Budgets and a three-year pilot scheme to look at the viability of rolling out Personal Health Budgets, in which Dorset is selected as one of 20 sites nationally. There is also a change of government from a Labour administration to a coalition of the Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties, but this does not seem to have changed the planned modernisation of both social care provision and healthcare provision started by the outgoing Labour government. Also in this period we see the wide-ranging revision of the Mental Health Act 1983. My original contribution to knowledge is in describing the development of a service user representative model that works well in ...
Foley Associate Maureen Kwiecinski is speaking at the World Research Groups 3rd Annual Capitalizing on Medical-Behavioral Healthcare Integration Conference April 28 - 30, 2009 in Chicago, Illinois.. Ms. Kwiecinski is speaking at 8:15 a.m. on April 29, 2009. Her session is titled The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008. The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 amends the original Act of 1996 expanding its protections to include substance abuse disorder benefits and to require parity between medical/surgical benefits and mental health and substance abuse benefits. Health plans that currently provide benefits for mental health/substance use disorders are required to provide coverage that is not more restrictive than the benefits generally available for medical/surgical conditions. Similar to the Parity Act of 1996, the provisions of this Act appear in ERISA, PHSA (Public Health Service Act) and the Internal Revenue Code, and therefore its provisions apply to ...
Sadness, depression and anxiety common during the festive season, according to University of Phoenix College of Social Sciences survey. PHOENIX, Dec. 8, 2015 - Roughly two-thirds (66 percent) of U.S. adults say mental health is a very or extremely serious issue, and two-thirds (67 percent) of Americans cited personal experience dealing with mental health issues, according to a recent survey from University of Phoenix® College of Social Sciences among 1014 U.S. adults aged 18 or older. The survey, which examined the prevalence of mental health issues including seasonal sadness and depression, also found that nearly half (45 percent) of U.S. adults say they have experienced mental health issues such as sadness or depression around the fall and winter festive season.. An overwhelming majority of Americans recognize that mental health is a serious issue and many have personal experiences with mental health issues, and those feelings often intensify during the festive time of year, said Tammy ...

Wisconsin's Second-in-Charge is calling on the legislature to act on 'mental health parity'.. Lieutenant Governor Barbara Lawton is urging all 132 lawmakers to support bipartisan legislation (LRB-1049/5) that would ensure equality in healthcare insurance for those with mental health disorders. She says there's still a significant stigma attached to mental illness.. And there are many people who operate under the mistaken impression that insurance coverage for mental health will cost employers more money. And what we have found in the states like our neighbor in Minnesota that has had mental health parity for over 11 years that that's not true. It doesn't increase costs.. In fact, Lawton says, Wisconsin can no longer afford the cost of UN-treated mental illness. Lawton stresses, with proper medical attention, people with mental illness can contribute to society and our economy.. We simply are not such a wealthy state that we can afford to sideline any talent ...
