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 ...

If youve never seen a mental health provider before, you may not know how to find one who suits your specific needs. Here are some things to keep in mind as you search for a mental health provider.. Mental health providers are professionals who diagnose mental health conditions and provide treatment. Most have at least a masters degree or more-advanced education, training and credentials.

Below youll find some of the most common types of mental health providers. Some may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, substance misuse or family therapy. They may work in different settings, such as private practice, hospitals, community agencies or other facilities.. ...
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 ...
The number of Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) providing specialty mental health services remains limited. This study examined changes in the delivery of mental health services by RHCs, their operational characteristics, barriers to the development of services, and policy options to encourage more RHCs to deliver mental health services. Key Findings: Approximately 6% of independent and 2% of provider-based RHCs offer mental health services by doctoral-level psychologists and/or clinical social workers. Models used to provide mental health services include contracted and/or employed clinicians housed in the same facility as primary care providers. A key element in the development of mental health services is the presence of an internal champion (typically clinicians or senior administrators) who identify the need for and undertake implementation of services, help overcome internal barriers, and direct resources to the development of services.. ...
Objective: Approximately one in five children and adolescents (CA) suffer from mental disorders. This paper reports on the findings of a situational analysis of CA mental health policy and services in Ghana, Uganda, South Africa and Zambia. The findings are part of a 5 year study, the Mental Health and Poverty Project, which aims to provide new knowledge regarding multi-sectoral approaches to breaking the cycle of poverty and mental ill-health in Africa. Method: The World Health Organization's Assessment Instrument for Mental Health Systems (WHO-AIMS) Version 2.2 was used to collect quantitative information on mental health resources. Mental health policies and legislation were analysed using the WHO Policy and Plan, and Legislation Checklists. Qualitative data were collected through focus groups and interviews. Results: Child and adolescent mental health (CAMH) - related legislation, policies, services, programmes and human resources are scarce. Stigma and low priority given to mental health
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 ...
Background Recovery has become a central concept in mental health service delivery, and several recovery-focused measures exist for adults. The concepts applicability to young peoples mental health experience has been neglected, and no measures yet exist. Aim The aim of this work is to develop measures of recovery for use in specialist child and adolescent mental health services. Method On the basis of 21 semi-structured interviews, three recovery measures were devised, one for completion by the young person and two for completion by the parent/carer. Two parent/carer measures were devised in order to assess both their perspective on their childs recovery and their own recovery process. The questionnaires were administered to a UK sample of 47 young people (10-18 years old) with anxiety and depression and their parents, along with a measure used to routinely assess treatment progress and outcome and a measure of self-esteem. Results All three measures had high internal consistency (alpha ≥ ...

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 ...
DENVER-A proposal to expand mental health services in Colorado by establishing a crisis response system passed the state House and heads to the governors desk. The governors office and health officials began discussions on plans to increase mental health services within days of the July theater shootings. The bill sets up walk-in and mobile crisis services, including a 24-hour crisis hotline. The bill passed the House Monday. Gov. John Hickenlooper and state mental health leaders called for the initiative in December to expand services, and lawmakers set aside about $19.7 million in the next budget year to implement. The measure also seeks to increase public awareness about mental health services with informational campaigns on television, radio, and online.. ...
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 ...

Of the national burden of disease, neuropsychiatric disorders are third only to HIV/AIDS and infectious disease, according to revised DALY (disability-adjusted life-years) estimates for the year 2000.1,2 Yet mental health services are grossly under-resourced and there are many barriers to health care for the mentally ill.3,4 Barriers include lack of accessibility, acceptability and availability of services, stigma, lack of awareness, perceptions that treatment may not be effective, cultural beliefs, and language problems.5,6 Failure and delays in treatment seeking for mental disorders are greater and more pervasive in developing countries, contributing to high levels of unmet need.7 South Africa has a legacy of racially inequitable, fragmented and inadequately resourced mental health care services,3,8 characterised by provincial variability.4 Findings suggest that two-thirds of patient contacts with mental health services occur through ambulatory care services, with low outpatient attendance ...

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, ...

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 ...
Care specialists with knowledge of the armed forces should be used to support armed forces veterans with mental health conditions.. That is the verdict of a Ministry of Defence-commissioned evaluation of a pilot project in six areas in which service users received complementary support from third-sector organisations with experience of working with ex-service personnel.. It is hoped such specialist support can combat high rates of alcoholism, drug abuse and homelessness among veterans.. Specialists from the University of Sheffields centre for psychological services research conducted the evaluation of the pilots, endorsing the use of staff who themselves were veterans, the badging of teams and buildings as being for veterans and the routine accessing of forces service records of new referrals.. The evaluation criticised assessment-only services which led to treatment in generic NHS settings and waiting lists for each stage of treatment.. It recommended that when service such as alcohol detox ...
Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Mental Health, Colm Keaveney TD, has called for a full audit of all deaths involving service users at state mental health facilities.. Deputy Keaveney was reacting to reports that only 25% of deaths in care at state mental health facilities follow statutory reporting guidelines.. He commented: "I am calling for an audit of all deaths involving service users in state psychiatric care over the last five years. A META analysis of the reporting of these deaths by the HSE and Mental Health Commission found that only 25% of deaths are reported in accordance with legislative requirements. This is clearly not good enough and we need answers as to why this is the case.. "As a state we are badly failing people with mental health problems that come to our institutions for help. There are no sanctions at present for health care staff that do not follow their statutory obligations to report deaths or serious incidences to the Mental Health Commission. Until we do so, more and ...
Twenty priorities for public mental health research were identified through the consensus process. The research priorities were divided into summary principles-encompassing overall recommendations for future public mental health research in Europe-and thematic research priorities, including area-specific top priorities on research topics and methods. The priorities represent three overarching goals mirroring societal challenges, that is, to identify causes, risk and protective factors for mental health across the lifespan; to advance the implementation of effective public mental health interventions and to reduce disparities in mental health..

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

In the context of current concerns about health inequalities among minority ethnic groups in the UK, this paper addresses perceptions of mental health services among members of an African-Caribbean community in a South England town. Efforts to reduce health inequalities must take account of the views of local community members on the sources of those inequalities and on local health services. The statistical existence of inequalities in diagnosis and treatment of African-Caribbeans in the UK is well-established, supported by sociological explanations of these inequalities which centre on social exclusion in a variety of forms: institutional, cultural and socio-economic. However, detailed studies of the perspectives of local communities on mental health issues and services have received less attention. In this case study of community perceptions of mental health services, we find that social exclusion comprises an explanatory framework which is repeatedly invoked by community members in ...
Tuesday Marler came to Victoria earlier in December on a mission - to help her family.. Her family happens to be people with mental health problems.. Marler, a regional peer support coordinator with East Texas Behavioral Healthcare Network, has had a mental health illness. She now works with directors of regional mental health facilities in the South Texas area, including Gulf Bend Center, a community mental health facility in Victoria. Her role doesnt go without its difficulties. One of them is funding.. "Were really trying to help people with the resources we have," said Marler. "The government has cut so much in that people are not able to get help.". In recent weeks after the school shooting in Connecticut, most of the national dialogue focused on gun control and the availability of mental health services.. Crossroads experts say that because of the lack of funding, Texas cannot provide the necessary services for mental health patients. They say mental health has not been a central concern ...
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 ...

The NHS 2012 Programme does not have a pan-London strategy for mental health planning for the Games. Modelling specific to mental health service demand has not been conducted. Prima facie this may not be imprudent, as data from previous Olympics do not suggest there will be a substantial rise in demand for mental health services. There may even be a decrease. However, the lack of data may be more reflective of monitoring practices, priorities in health surveillance systems or variations in service models resulting in people with mental illness being less likely to access or be referred to services.. Difficulty in estimating visitor numbers to the Games adds further uncertainty. Modelling by the Office for National Statistics suggests there will be an additional 510 000 visitors in London each day during the Games period.3 This projection needs to be cautioned, as predictions for visitor numbers for previous games have been unreliable. Post hoc estimates of visitor numbers show large variations ...
Children coming into contact with child welfare agencies constitute what has been described as the dominant public mental health problem when it comes to children. These approximately 5.8 million children are disproportionately non-white, and display considerable race/ethnic disparities in their utilization of mental health services. For the first time in the field of child welfare research, members of this research team are assembling a unique data set that links the respondents of a national survey of children in child welfare to their Medicaid claims data, along with information on Medicaid and mental health policies within their counties of residence ...

While 27 percent of Americans have received treatment or therapy from a mental health professional, only 4 percent are aware of the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) - legislation enacted in 2008 that requires health insurers that offer coverage for mental health or substance use disorders to provide the same level of benefits as they do for general medical treatment. According to the American Psychological Associations (APA) 2014 Mental Health Parity Survey, awareness of the MHPAEA has not increased since the APA last conducted the survey in 2010. With mental health disorders as the leading cause of disability, the APA has developed resources, including a consumer guide and educational video, to inform the public about their rights for mental health coverage.. ...
One in every four people will be affected by a mental disorder at some point of their live. Mental and neurological disorders include schizophrenia, substance abuse, epilepsy, or other disorders affecting the nervous system. Over 800000 people commit suicide every year, due to mental disorders. The fact is even more striking that low-income countries only have 0.05 psychiatrists and 0.42 nurses per 100 000 people, compared to 170 times more psychiatrists in high-income countries and 70 times more nurses. These are the findingsof a new report "The Mental Health Atlas 2011" released by the World Health Organization on World Mental Health Day, 10 October 2011. The report presents the latest estimate of global mental health resources available to prevent and treat mental disorders and help protect the human rights of people living with these conditions. The report also points to the uneven distribution of the investments in mental health: majority of low- and middle-income countries allocate less ...
RALEIGH - A Senate panel has passed legislation to accelerate mental health Medicaid reform and free up nearly $1 billion in frozen assets to provide more behavioral health services.. Sen. Ralph Hise, R-Mitchell, a co-chairman of the Senate Health Care Committee, presented an amended version of House Bill 403 that he said would speed the integration of mental health services and physical health care. The panel approved the bill Thursday.. Such integrated care would deliver better results for less money by using Prepaid Health Plans, Hise said. The PHPs would receive a monthly fee per patient, versus the current model, which pays providers for every service they perform.. PHPs could be commercial managed care networks or organizations comprising private health care providers. Up to five PHPs would serve Medicaid and NC Health Choice recipients statewide. Four regional contracts would be issued to provider-led entities to deliver services.. The bill would hold providers accountable by developing ...

This collection contains 262 variables that were also included in AMERICANS VIEW THEIR MENTAL HEALTH, 1957 (ICPSR 3503). The survey queried American adults on various areas in which problems might arise, including marriage, parenthood, employment, and general social relationships. Information about leisure time, past and present physical and mental health, and motives for affiliation, achievement, and power were also sought. In addition, extensive information was collected concerning help-seeking, the readiness of people to use professional help for mental health problems, the particular helpers they used, referral mechanisms, and evaluation of help received.. ...

Studies have shown that people from a rural area wait longer to get help than people from urban areas," said Jane Hovland, associate professor of Biomedical Sciences and associate director of the Center for Rural Mental Health Studies (CRMHS). "The severity of the symptoms over this amount of time can worsen as people wait for care. In addition, when mental health care is not available in a community, the costs of treatment increase because of time and travel, making it almost prohibitive. CRMHS helps with this problem, by providing mental health services to these smaller communities.". CRMHS, part of the University of Minnesota Medical School Duluth Campus, uses an interactive video system or Telemental Health, to provide mental health services to people in rural Minnesota. There are 13 clinics and hospitals participating in CRMHS, which started in 2003 to help UMD alumni who were located in rural communities without mental health services. "All the areas in which the study has been implemented ...

Young children served by child welfare (CW) have very high rates of behavioral, mental health, and cognitive delays, yet these children are rarely connected to early childhood intervention (Cicchetti, & Curtis, 2005; Jonson- Reid, Drake et al, 2004; Leslie et al, 2005a). Parents served by CW are known to have a high rate of maternal depression (Leschied, Chiodo, Whitehead & Hurley, 2005; Wolfe, 1999). Among the CW parent population, however, drop-out from typical parenting programs is high (Chaffin, 2007) and participation in mental health services is low (Jonson-Reid, Drake, & Kohl, Under Review). Early Childhood Connections (ECC) is a novel service delivery system designed collaboratively by community agencies and the research team. Using a randomized design, this R34 tests ECCs ability to prevent child developmental delay and later mental health disorders, prevent recurrent maltreatment, and prevent or ameliorate maternal depression and stress in families with young children served by CW. ...
While mental health is now much more openly discussed and accepted among the UK population than it once was, it is still much more of a taboo subject within black and ethnic minority communities.. However, a social enterprise called Find A Balance has been established in Hackney to help young people with mental health conditions. The service specialises in black and ethnic minority mental health issues, although it is open to all races and communities. Francis works with young people aged between eight and eighteen, eighteen and over. Find A Balance - FAB, started in November 2016 and offers vital support to individuals and families who suffer in silence from mental health issues.. It founder, Samantha Francis said: "I gave my service its name because its about finding your balance mentally and physically. My son had a psychotic breakdown in November 2013. I found that the services provided by the NHS didnt work for him. He had to wait eight months for talking therapy, and when that time came ...
UPDATED: 5/29/14. Have We Reached the Tipping Point?. Another senseless tragedy has struck our country and the outcry for solutions pervades the media. How long, though, until we forget? Until the media attention fades? Until we are shocked, again, by the next mass shooting or stabbing or bombing? There is not a simple solution to this problem. However, we must refuse to accept this string of violence as inherent or inevitable. Other developed countries do not have this problem. There is something in our society that needs attention.. Part of the habitual outcry relates to gun/weapon/violence control. The other, to which I will speak, is regarding mental health services. As a mental health professional as well as a consumer of services, I cannot impress enough the need to strike down the continued stigma related to mental health care that we are allowing health insurance companies to continue in the name of profit. Who else benefits from keeping this stigma around? Most of us seem to have grown ...

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

Another approach that Aleksandar is currently working on is the application of Confucian practical ethics to life coaching. He is currently working on a major research paper on this topic that will be available online by the end of 2013.. Aleksandars basic approach to working with clients is conceptualization. The method is based on the idea, advanced throughout the tradition of practical philosophy, that our reactions to events are a result of our concepts and understanding of what happens to us, and so is our ability to change our behavior and emotions..

The states effort to combine addiction and mental health services has people in the addiction field nervous that they will become the ugly stepsister again. The state Office for Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services and the Office of Mental Health have been working toward combining treatment services to provide one-stop shopping for New Yorkers who suffer from both problems. The Rev. Peter Young recalls a time when alcohol addiction was a bureau within the mental health department -- and its not a fond memory. Gonzalez-Sanchez, who was appointed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, is the former commissioner of human services in Nassau County, where she oversaw the merger of the countys mental health and addiction departments.
Mr. Speaker, my New Democrat colleagues and I join in recognizing this week as National Mental Health Week. We pay tribute to those working on the front lines to educate Canadians about the importance of recognizing that mental health is part of everyones health.. I want to also acknowledge the significant contribution made by Roy Romanow in his landmark report in bringing greater awareness to the importance of mental health issues. He noted that it is time to deal with this issue and bring mental health into the mainstream of public health care. Roy Romanow is being honoured today by the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans with the Canadian public service award, a well deserved award.. During National Mental Health Week we want to point out that mental illness affects everyone, that all Canadians are likely to be affected through a mental illness in a family member, friend or colleague, and that it is essential that we respect, not reject.. Finally, I join in paying tribute to ...

BackgroundThe high psychiatric disorders in many countries pose a heavy societal burden and present an enormous need for services. There is a high volume of unmet needs, because most people with mental disorders do not seek professional help. Ethnic differences in psychiatric illneses and help seeking behaviour are also notable, and in multi-ethnic Singapore, differences in prevalence of psychiatric illness and under-utilization of mental health service pose a challenge to policy makers and health care authorities in planning for mental health services. Aims To assess the prevalence of mental disorders and help seeking behaviours and use of mental health service in the general population of Singapore and among different ethnic groups residing in Singapore, and to explore their differences in underlying beliefs and attitudes towards mental health services,MethodA two stage, population based mental health survey was conducted from February 2003 to March 2004, on a community sample of 2847 subjects ...
Australians with a mental illness will get the care they need, when they need it, under the reform package for mental health services announced in the 2011-12 Budget.
The decision to tie mental health legislation to the Senate gun package that was pulled from the floor last month has left supporters of those provisions in limbo.. Without a firm timeline in place for returning to the gun measure, senators who have introduced mental health proposals have to decide how long theyll wait before attempting to move their bills forward separately. And for some, the end of that waiting period is approaching. "We think its a very important part, with or without a full package," said Alaska Democratic Sen. Mark Begich, referring to legislation he has introduced on mental health first-aid training (S 153). "So were giving it a little breathing room, but then were going to move forward." Like gun control and school safety, mental health received renewed attention after the December elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn. President Barack Obama included mental health provisions in his plan to reduce gun violence, and lawmakers on both sides of the Capitol have ...

People with mental illness have a 20-year reduction in life expectancy compared to people in the general population. One of the factors contributing to this difference is antipsychotic medication, commonly prescribed for people with severe mental illness. We surveyed the district health boards mental health services to investigate their policies for monitoring the physical health of people with severe mental illness. We found that most DHBs had policies for monitoring physical health, but also that there was scope for improvement in those policies. Our recommendation is that the Ministry of Health adopt a best practice standard in this area, and require DHBs to report against this standard.. ...

The overall pattern of morale found in the mental health workforce was fairly encouraging. Staff tended to be satisfied with work and very satisfied with their colleagues, and they reported low levels of cynicism and good personal accomplishment. Where they were burnt out, as in most previous mental health workforce investigations this tended to take the form of high emotional exhaustion and the numbers reaching the threshold for caseness on the GHQ-12 were also substantial. That mental health work should have a high emotional impact is unsurprising, but a better understanding of this finding, its antecedents, its effect on patients and any effective means of alleviating psychological strain is nonetheless desirable.. There were considerable variations between service types. Acute general ward staff had mean emotional exhaustion scores just above the threshold for burnout, which is a matter for concern as these wards are numerous and have a key role in the mental health system. We compared these ...
Purpose of review: Adolescents with mental health problems often require transition of care from child and adolescent to adult mental health services. This review is a synthesis of current research and policy literature on transition to describe the barriers at the interface between child and adolescent mental health services and adult mental health services and outcomes of poor transition.. Recent findings: Adolescence is a risk period for emergence of serious mental disorders. Child and adolescent mental health services and adult mental health services use rigid age cut-offs to delineate service boundaries, creating discontinuities in provision of care. Adolescent mental health services are patchy across the world. Several recent studies have confirmed that problems occur during transition in diverse settings across several countries. In physical health, there are emerging models of practice to improve the process and outcomes of transition, but there is very little comparable literature in ...
In recent decades the community mental health movement has achieved a dramatic reduction in the census of state and county mental hospitals in the United States, and hundreds of federally-funded community mental health centers have been established nationwide. At the same time, national controversy has arisen in response to what in places has seemed the haphazard process of implementing "deinstitutionalization" and the fate of many chronically mentally ill persons who are without needed social services and psychological care. Despite the widespread attention that this contemporary program has received, theoretical analysis of the complex social, scientific, intellectual, and political origins of Americas community mental health policy remains deficient. This article examines the background and development of the Community Mental Health Centers Act of 1963, tracing how an important shift in national policy toward the mentally ill grew out of changing perceptions-among policymakers, professional ...

OBJECTIVE Mental health-related problems pose a serious issue for primary care, and community pharmacy could make a significant contribution, but there is a dearth of information. METHODS This article reports synthesis of the literature on mental health interventions across a range of pharmacy models, and pharmacy services in contexts beyond mental health. To best inform the design of a community pharmacy medication support intervention for mental health consumers, the literature was reported as a conceptual schema and subsequent recommendations for development, implementation and evaluation of the service. A broad conceptualisation was taken in this review. In addition to mental health and community pharmacy literature, policy/initiatives, organisational culture and change management principles, and evaluative processes were reviewed. Key words were selected and literature reviews undertaken using EMBASE, PubMed, CINAHL and Web of Science. RESULTS Recommendations were made around: medication
Objectives: The benefits of religion/spirituality for people living with experiences of mental disorder or incarceration are well-researched in North America. Limited attention has been paid to equivalent populations in the UK and even less so to forensic mental health service users. This paper aims to explore the lived experience of high secure hospital service users who have identified religion/spirituality as holding personal importance. In particular, the paper aims to explore the role of religion/spirituality in the process of recovery from mental disorder and offending behaviour. Design: A semi-structured interview design was adopted. Methods: Men from a high secure hospital with a self-identified religious/spiritual identity were interviewed individually. A maximum variation sampling procedure was used in order to include men across services and levels of care within the hospital.
