Crises and (involuntary) admissions have a strong impact on patients and their caregivers. In some countries, including the Netherlands, the number of crises and (involuntary) admissions have increased in the last years. There is also a lack of effective interventions to prevent their occurrence. Previous research has shown that a form of psychiatric advance statement - joint crisis plan - may prevent involuntary admissions, but another study showed no significant results for another form. The question remains which form of psychiatric advance statement may help to prevent crisis situations. This study examines the effects of two other psychiatric advance statements. The first is created by the patient with help from a patients advocate (Patient Advocate Crisis Plan: PACP) and the second with the help of a clinician only (Clinician facilitated Crisis Plan: CCP). We investigate whether patients with a PACP or CCP show fewer emergency visits and (involuntary) admissions as compared to patients without a
Three quarters of countries around the world have mental health legislation. Compulsory admission to mental health facilities (also known as involuntary commitment) is a controversial topic. It can impinge on personal liberty and the right to choose, and carry the risk of abuse for political, social and other reasons; yet it can potentially prevent harm to self and others, and assist some people in attaining their right to healthcare when they may be unable to decide in their own interests.[164] All human rights oriented mental health laws require proof of the presence of a mental disorder as defined by internationally accepted standards, but the type and severity of disorder that counts can vary in different jurisdictions. The two most often utilized grounds for involuntary admission are said to be serious likelihood of immediate or imminent danger to self or others, and the need for treatment. Applications for someone to be involuntarily admitted usually come from a mental health practitioner, ...

The National Health Act is the key piece of legislation in the health sector, and thischapter focuses firstly on the extent to which this Act has been brought into effect over the past year. Other important pieces of health legislation are in the process of being brought into effect, including a new Nursing Act. In general, implementation of existing laws on the statute books has been slow, but some progress has been made with the less controversial aspects of the National Health Act. The second half of 2008 has been dominated by the tabling of a number of Amendment Bills relating to health, including a National Health Amendment Bill. These are expected to be taken through Parliament in 2008, despite the truncated terms provided as a result of the looming General Election in 2009. Court decisions can also have a dramatic impact on health legislation and on the development and implementation of policy. Some of these key recent cases are also covered in this chapter. Implementation-level policies continue

At the end of 2012, more than 600,000 frozen embryos are being maintained in cryopreservation storage facilities in the United States. Some of them are the subject of agreements in which one party transfers one or more embryos to another party for implantation. Such agreements may be called Embryo Adoption Agreements, although there is controversy over the use of the term adoption since the legal status of an embryo is different from that of a living child. In recent years, there have been a number of legal disputes arising from these agreements. Cynthia Marietta describes one of these disputes, McLaughlin v. Lambert, in her article, Frozen embryo litigation spotlights pressing questions: What is the legal status of an embryo and can it be adopted?. ...

D.N.I.S. News Network, India: Amendments seem to be the flavour of the season with Ministries trying to outdo each other in amending legislations related to disability. However, they seem more keen on quick fix measures. According to sources, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare is now planning to amend the outdated Mental Health Act of 1987. But this too, is now mired in controversy.. The Ministry has reportedly assigned the task of conducting a consultative process and suggesting draft amendments to Dr. Soumitra Pathare of Pune, noted mental health expert and human rights activist. However, a section of the sector feels that the process of amendments is being looked at in a very narrow manner.. In a letter to Dr. Pathare, Dr. Achal Bhagat, Director, Sarthak, said, Under U.N.C.R.P.D., it is the responsibility of the State to consult all stakeholders before formulating changes in legislation. The State cannot delegate this responsibility to one individual. An individual, any individual, can ...

Two farm state Senators are promoting legislation that seeks to curb farmer suicides. Announced last month, the Seeding Rural Resilience Act would offer ways to help farmers and rural America deal with stress.. The bill was formally introduced this week by Senator John Tester, a Democrat from Montana, and Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley. Grassley and Tester say the legislation is receiving praise from farm and mental health organizations. Tester says the legislation puts us on track towards giving farmers the resources they need to cope with stress in a tough economy.. Federal data shows the suicide rate is 45 percent higher in rural America than in urban areas. The bill would provide Department of Agriculture employees voluntary stress management training, and for a partnership with the Department of Health to create a $3 million public awareness campaign, and create a path to identify the best practices for responding to farm and ranch stress.. ...
Objective: This is the second of three reports on the follow-up review of mental health care at Helen Joseph Hospital (HJH). Objectives for the review were to provide realistic estimates of cost for unit activities and to establish a quality assurance cycle that may facilitate cost centre management. Method: The study described and used activity-based costing (ABC) as an approach to analyse the recurrent cost of acute in-patient care for the financial year 2007-08. Fixed (e.g. goods and services, staff salaries) and variable recurrent costs (including laboratory, pharmacy) were calculated. Cost per day, per user and per diagnostic group was calculated. Results: While the unit accounted for 4.6% of the hospitals total clinical activity (patient days), the cost of R8.12 million incurred represented only 2.4% of the total hospital expenditure (R341.36 million). Fixed costs constituted 90% of the total cost. For the total number of 520 users that stayed on average 15.4 days, the average cost was ...
Mental health legislation can help achieve these goals by providing a legal framework for implementation and enforcement. Conversely, legislation can also be used as a framework for policy development. Mental health systems are being developed in other countries in South Asia such as India, Afghanistan and Nepal, where legislations were enacted in 1987, 1997 and 2006 respectively. We are now at a stage where the Pakistani government needs to undertake a review of the fundamental interface between legislation and policy. Since the passage of the 18th Amendment, the provinces are still struggling to formulate effectual mental health policies and legislations. In the cases of the Sindh and Punjab mental health acts (2013 and 2014 respectively), the Mental Health Ordinance (MHO) of 2001 was used as a background document with limited deviation. Had there been documented facts showing disparity in the needs and resources of different regions, there might have been an argument for provincial laws and ...
Of course this is detention without trial. I dont understand the way that Wolverine4abolishments argument turns to the topic of ethnic insanity. On the other hand there are many examples of cases of this nature where the (former) defendant is locked away in civil commitment for decades by seemingly endless cycles of competency evaluation--,(low bar of presumptive incompetency)--,competency restoration--,failure to restore (because of a high bar of competency restoration/functional capacity)--,civil commitment incompetency--,treatment--,arraignment--,incompetency---,and the cycle continues. Drs. Murrie and Zafp have written extensively on this and as long as there is the potential for partisan allegiance in evaluations for competency and mental state, the mental health system (which is supposed to be collaborative and collegial) and those railroaded into it by both parties will be held hostage by the criminal justice system (which is by definition adversarial.).

Why dont you investigate what is happening in Florida with Civil Commitment? Men are being deemed eligible for civil commitment trials after serving their time in prison even if the crime they were in for is not sex related but they have a sex offense in their past (some up to 30 yrs prior). Some are sent to trial even though they served their prison time with good behavior (no writeups), got their GEDs, and cleaned up their life. Florida uses the mental health issue and POSSIBLE future offending as an excuse for holding SOs longer. There is NO second chance. The evaluators are paid BY the state and never reccomend for release. They use the Static-99 which is skewed toward past offenses and not the offenders present state of mind.These guys dont even have to have a mental illness diagnosis as long as they fall into the Static-99 criteria because under the Jimmy Ryce Act the state assumes if you were unable to control yourself in the past you will POSSIBLY lose control again in the future. ...

Back in 2002, I had some ideas on July 31st and August 1st that led me to get into a pickup truck, and drive to Langley, Virginia, from my home in Philadelphia. Before leaving, I grabbed a glass pipe with a hunk of hashish in it and a poster of Albert Einstein with his tongue sticking out. A few hours later, after slowly driving past a large sign informing me that I was trespassing onto CIA property, I told the first federal police officer that I encountered, that I had driven there, in part, to identify myself as the person who had just registered the domain name: iamosamabinladen.com. I explained how I had lost my Internet connection at home earlier in the day, just seconds after registering the bin Laden domain. I was questioned by a few different federal officers over the next hour as I remained in my truck, and was eventually surrounded by four armed officers, with weapons at the ready-three on foot in front of me and on either side of me, and one atop a military humvee, behind me.

Bipolar disorder is a highly heritable, lifelong, relapsing, and remitting chronic mental illness. While traditionally characterized as a disorder with distinct periods of elated and depressed mood, it is now clear that interepisode mood instability is common. Comorbid psychiatric and medical conditions are common. When occurring in medical settings mania can be both disruptive and hazardous, and may require active psychiatric management. Pharmacological approaches are the mainstay of treatment, although adjunctive psychotherapies are helpful in preventing relapse. Compulsory detention in hospital using mental health law may sometimes be required for both manic and depressive states.

Mind matters: What your shrink really thinks Shrink Rap: Three Psychiatrists Explain Their Work, (Johns Hopkins University Press, $19.95) The HBO series In Treatment is between seasons, leaving a void for therapy voyeurs. Luckily, theres Shrink Rap, in which three area psychiatrists dish about their field. The book is a spinoff of a blog that Dinah Miller, Annette Hanson and Steven Roy Daviss created five years ago; it later became the podcast My Three Shrinks. The doctors, who are affiliated with such local institutions as Johns Hopkins Hospital and the University of Maryland, discuss psychiatric medications, involuntary hospitalizations and the business of psychiatry, among other topics, with compelling patient vignettes. Though the writing is more formal than their breezy, witty banter on the blog and podcast (bound to happen), its a fascinating peek into the minds of those who study minds.. - Rachel ...

Except I still experience many symptoms which would lead to the same diagnosis. I still experience delusions. Occasionally (very occasionally) they require me to take a mental health day, which is supported by both my workplaces. Voices are a constant for me, although the strategies developed by me with my support team do a good job of keeping them manageable, even positive at times. And I still experience paranoia. Creating a system of open and clear communication, knowing exactly where I stand in any given relationship or situation, has been huge in living positively when paranoia starts to scale negatively. I understand the logic behind basing care based around the degree of suffering an individual faces. But when you diagnose based on degrees of suffering or states of being you create positions of living which do nothing but terrify people. Schizophrenia cannot be diagnosed based on whether an individual has the capacity to function. It is only a term for a collection of symptoms. If you ...

Facing involuntary commitment in a federal medical prison, ex-state Sen. Raphael J. Musto is continuing the legal battle to delay his fate.. Attorneys for Musto on Friday announced they would appeal a judges decision to place the ex-lawmaker in a federal treatment facility to determine if he could regain the mental capacity to appear in court.. While U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo earlier this month ruled Musto, 84, was not mentally competent to stand trial on public corruption charges, the judge said he believed Musto was physically fit to appear in court.. Despite the fact they got a judge to block Mustos trial, his attorneys say they are appealing Caputos ruling that Musto was physically able to stand trial. The two issues were argued and ruled upon separately during a recent competency hearing.. Mustos attorneys had repeatedly argued that the stress of a trial would kill Musto because of his ailing physical health, which include liver cirrhosis and an aortic aneurysm that could ...
School shootings and high-profile stories of mental illness often bring about calls for change from government officials, but this year Congress did not pass mental health care reforms and states slowed in their response to the issue, shows a study by the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

People with mental illness were routinely imprisoned and only later put in primitive treatment facilities where many were subjected to barely tolerable hot- and cold-water baths, among other things. [...] the state ranks near the bottom when it comes to per-capita mental health spending. More disturbing, those with mental illness are too often demonized as a source of community violence even though they are far more likely to be victims than perpetrators. Schizophrenia is consistently overdiagnosed, while more manageable conditions such as depression or post-traumatic stress disorder are often underrecognized or misdiagnosed - resulting in higher incidents of seclusion, use of restraints and involuntary commitment, and lower levels of support for patients and their families. Unfortunately, despite evidence to the contrary, too many people still believe that people struggling with mental health issues are to blame for them - that danger is rampant, recovery is rare and treatment is ineffectual.

Involuntary care and coercive measures are frequently present in mental healthcare for adolescents. The purpose of this study was to examine to what extent adolescents perceive or experience coercion during inpatient mental health care, and to examine predictors of experienced coercion. A cross-sectional sample of 96 adolescent inpatients from 10 Norwegian acute and combined (acute and sub-acute) psychiatric wards reported their experienced coercion on Coercion Ladder and the Experienced Coercion Scale in questionnaires. Staff reported use of formal coercion, diagnoses, and psychosocial functioning.

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 ...
Objective : This is the first of three reports on a follow-up review of mental health care at Helen Joseph Hospital (HJH). In this first part, qualitative and quantitative descriptions were made of the services and of demographic and clinical data on acute mental health care users managed at HJH, in a retrospective review of clinical records over a four year period. Objectives for this review were to provide information on mental health care outcome, to do a cost analysis and to establish a quality assurance cycle that may facilitate a cost centre management approach. The operational areas identified were service delivery, teaching, and research. Activities within each area were in-patient care, out-patients and consultation / liaison, under- and postgraduate teaching and self initiated or contract research. Method : The study reviewed the existing mental health care program and activities in context of relevant policy and legislation. Results : Norms from a World Health Organization model for acute

Background: Immigration has been the focus of intense political debate, with a recurrent theme being the use of public services, including healthcare. Although Latinos are the largest and fastest growing ethnic group in the United States (U.S.), evidence suggests they underutilize healthcare, with Mexican Immigrants and Mexican Americans (MI-MA) living on the U.S.-Mexico border exhibiting the greatest disparities. Objective: This study explored the association of predisposing, enabling and need characteristics, including legal status, with the use of routine medical care (RMC) among 387 MI-MA living on the California-Mexico border. Methods: This cross-sectional study used data collected in 2009 for the San Diego Prevention Research Center (SDPRC) community survey; data analyses were completed in Summer 2012. This study involved multistage sampling and recruitment of Latino adults in 200 census blocks near the California-Mexico border to complete an interview and height and weight measurements.

In the ruling, the justices found that a mental abnormality like pedophilia was enough to meet a standard to qualify someone for commitment, not the different standard of mental illness that had been traditionally used. The court also rejected the notion that civil commitment amounted to double jeopardy (a second criminal punishment for a single crime) or an ex post facto law (a new punishment for a past crime), noting that Kansass statute was not meant to punish committed men but, like other acceptable civil commitment statutes, intended both to incapacitate and to treat them therapeutically. ...
Background: Older adults constitute an important subgroup among those presenting to psychiatric emergency services. Psychiatric emergencies in older adults are particularly understudied in India. Objective: The objective was to study the clinical profile of older adults presenting to psychiatric emergency services. Method: All case records of older adults (60 years and above) presenting to Emergency psychiatry and Acute care (EPAC) in a tertiary care Neuropsychiatric institute from July 2018 to December 2018 were reviewed. The details pertaining to sociodemography, clinical profile, medical comorbidity and clinical management were reviewed and analyzed. Results: 230 older adults were seen in EPAC during the study period. This constituted 6.7% of the 4200 patients of all age groups seen in EPAC during this period. The mean age of the study group was 68.77 years (standard deviation-7.23) with 61.30% males and 38.69% females. The frequency of individuals with at least one co-morbid medical illness ...

Homeless, mentally ill, and three months pregnant, Tanya P. was arrested on New Years Day 1993 for trying to set fire to a shelter and for smoking crack. Police took her to the Bellevue Hospital psychiatric unit, where she voluntarily began in-house drug treatment and anti-psychotic medication. But a month before her baby was due, she demanded release. The hospital refused, under a city policy that allowed involuntary commitment for drug treatment during pregnancy. Represented by the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU), Tanya sued, and persuaded Justice Glen to release her immediately. ...
The disturbing circumstances surrounding the enrollment and subsequent suicide of Dan Markingson (2004) after he was given an experimental antipsychotic drug, Seroquel, as a test subject in AstraZenecas CAFE trial--having been enrolled while he was hospitalized under an involuntary commitment order--are continuing to generate outrage and dismay. The case against AstraZenecas corrupt practices is well documented in courts of law and in civil and criminal settlements with the Department of Justice: Kickbacks to physicians, rigged clinical trials in which company officials cherry picked the data to be disclosed while burying unfavorable study findings, the companys use of smoke and mirrors to obscure Seroquels failed efficacy, AstraZenecas failure to warn that Seroquel can cause diabetes and other health problems, and its illegal off-label marketing of Seroquel ...

EDITOR-Eastmans editorial brought the debate about dangerousness and mental disorder to a wider audience.1 Unfortunately, he failed to point out that the preventive detention of those with untreatable mental disorders is already widely practised in England. Under the Mental Health Act (1983) people with mental illness or severe mental impairment can be detained indefinitely in hospital regardless of response to treatment and on grounds of risk to self as well as others. Secure and open psychiatric hospitals are full of such patients.. If Eastman was concerned that possible new legislation might challenge both the civil liberties of the unconvicted and those designated untreatable then surely this concern should extend to the current legislation affecting people with a mental illness or mental impairment. Many psychiatrists find it convenient to … ...
Downloadable! Using a straight-forward Differences-in-Differences approach, effects of the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act and the 1986 and 1987 Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Acts on mortality levels in California are examined. These acts had the effect of legalizing and granting healthcare coverage to millions of previously illegal immigrants. Utilizing data on all IRCA applicants and all California deaths within this time period, I find evidence of substantial declines in mortality correlated with the size of the legalized cohort by county. If we assume, for purposes of a back of the envelope calculation, that after the reform IRCA applicants mortality rate is approximately equal to that of demographically similar California residents, this finding is consistent with IRCA applicants being subject to five to six times the mortality rate of California residents prior to the reform.
