Aim: This paper considers the priorities for policy to promote youth mental health in Australia. The Ottawa Charter is applied as a conceptual framework to determine current strengths and future priorities across the entire spectrum of interventions for mental health promotion.. Methods: The five platforms of the Ottawa Charter are used to categorize some of the major initiatives that promote youth mental health. Areas of strength and major gaps within each platform are identified.. Results: Australia was shown to be at the forefront of many youth mental health promotion initiatives, particularly in the service reorientation and personal skills platforms of the Ottawa Charter.. Conclusions: While significant progress has been made in some areas of youth mental health promotion, areas of critical need for policy focus were: oversight of all public policies for their impact on youth mental health; more supportive environments for youth and better interconnection with mental health care; community ...

Despite growing evidence of public health benefits from urban green space there has been little longitudinal analysis. This study used panel data to explore three different hypotheses about how moving to greener or less green areas may affect mental health over time. The samples were participants in the British Household Panel Survey with mental health data (General Health Questionnaire scores) for five consecutive years, and who relocated to a different residential area between the second and third years (n = 1064; observations = 5320). Fixed-effects analyses controlled for time-invariant individual level heterogeneity and other area and individual level effects. Compared to premove mental health scores, individuals who moved to greener areas (n = 594) had significantly better mental health in all three postmove years (P = .015; P = .016; P = .008), supporting a shifting baseline hypothesis. Individuals who moved to less green areas (n = 470) showed significantly worse mental health in the year
TY - JOUR. T1 - Exploring young peoples expectations of a youth mental health care service. AU - Watsford, Clare. AU - Rickwood, Debra. AU - Vanags, Thea. PY - 2012. Y1 - 2012. N2 - Client expectations about mental health services relate to the clients and the therapists role, the therapeutic process and therapeutic outcomes. Research with adults shows that such expectations affect service engagement and clinical outcomes. Aim: The present study investigated expectations for adolescents and young adults, which have not been adequately investigated and may partly explain the reluctance of young people to seek professional help. Methods: Participants included 20 young people aged 1224 attending their initial session at a youth mental health service, who were interviewed immediately prior to their initial session. Data were analysed using qualitative methods to draw main themes around each of the four expectancy types. Results: Overall, the strongest theme was that young people were unsure of ...
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 ...
The Royal Family has a long history of support to BC Childrens Hospital. Lady Diana visited in the 1980s and Prince Andrew, Duke of York, took part in the ground breaking ceremony of the Child and Youth Mental Health building in the early 2000s. Thanks to efforts by members of the Royal Family, issues and causes receive important recognition. The meeting with the Duke and Duchess during the 2016 Royal Tour not only helps raise awareness about the impact of BC Childrens Child & Youth Mental Health programs - it also reduces stigma experienced by many children, youth and their families ...

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

This study provides the first Canadian data related to public views of perinatal mental health and adds to the limited body of evidence on this topic. Only one other study in Australia has described the publics views of perinatal mental health at a population-level [13]. Overall, we found that levels of knowledge of postnatal mental health were high, while knowledge regarding prenatal mental health was significantly lower. Understanding the contributions of past mental health problems and prenatal mental health on the risk of development of depression/anxiety during and after pregnancy was also quite low. The least understood topic was the influence of prenatal mental health on child development, where only one in four participants responded accurately, and over 40% reported that they were unsure or did not know. Finally, our multivariable analyses revealed that the main determinants of both prenatal and postnatal mental health were personal experience with PPD and possessing high levels of ...
Theme for 2017 - Mental Health in the Work Place. This years World Mental Health Day on October 10 carries the theme "Mental Health in the Work Place". Are you aware that about 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression? Joanna Lee finds out how workplace mental health issues could affect us all. Mental health issues remain a taboo topic among people in general. Like the elephant in the room, it deserves awareness so that our affected friends and loved ones can get the help they need. In Malaysia, there has been a 50% increase in depressed patients between 2011 and 2016, according to the Malaysian Psychiatric Associations research. Bipolar disorder cases were at 3% in 2013 but that number is rising. By 2020, it is predicted that depression will be a major mental health illness among Malaysians.. Repercussions for productivity are serious because mental health issues at the workplace can lead to a lower quality of life, affect daily functioning and reduce the likelihood of employment, ...
Growing concern about the global burden of child mental health disorders has generated an increased interest in population-level efforts to improve child mental health. This in turn has led to a shift in emphasis away from treatment of established disorders and towards prevention and promotion. Prevention efforts are able to draw on a substantial epidemiological literature describing the prevalence and determinants of child mental health disorders. However, there is a striking lack of clearly conceptualised and measurable positive outcomes for child mental health, which may result in missed opportunities to identify optimal policy and intervention strategies. In this paper, we propose an epidemiological approach to child mental health which is in keeping with public health principles and with the WHO definition of health, and which is grounded in current thinking about child development. Constructs such as competence offer the opportunity to develop rigorous outcome measures for epidemiological ...

Early nurturing and bonding experiences lay the foundations for positive mental health. Exposure to high levels of parental stress, neglect and abuse can have a severe effect on brain development of the foetus, both during the early stages of life and longer term.. The evidence shows there are distinct differences in development of children living in stressful households compared to those who live in less stressful environments: stress hormones can create a reduction in the hippocampus which has a significant impact on the childrens emotional wellbeing, academic success, and memory processing.. Chronic stress also suppresses the immune function with studies showing a higher incidence of sickness in children exposed to chronic stress.. ...
Think about it: Psychiatrist shortage affects mental health care in WisconsinAs the demand for mental health care rises, a shortage of psychiatrists plagues Wisconsin. The shortage particularly affects rural areas Read…. Zweifel said there have been initiatives to train obstetrics residents to provide specialty mental health care. Some have also been trained to provide specialty care via Skype. These initiatives have been useful in increasing access to mental health care in rural areas, she said.. The committee for mental health reform is bipartisan and works on Wisconsins mental health-related issues together, Sargent said.. "Mental health services dont need to be partisan and certainly shouldnt depend on who youre voting for," she said.. Another way to improve mental health reform in the state, Peterson said, is to increase the number of mental health care providers in the state. Increasing peoples awareness of opportunities in mental health and providing them with incentives would help ...
Rural and remote Australians face a range of barriers to mental health care, potentially limiting the extent to which current services and support networks may provide assistance. This paper examines self-reported mental health problems and contacts during the last 12 months, and explores cross-sectional associations between potential facilitators/barriers and professional and non-professional help-seeking, while taking into account expected associations with socio-demographic and health-related factors. During the 3-year follow-up of the Australian Rural Mental Health Study (ARMHS) a self-report survey was completed by adult rural residents (N = 1,231; 61% female; 77% married; 22% remote location; mean age = 59 years), which examined socio-demographic characteristics, current health status factors, predicted service needs, self-reported professional and non-professional contacts for mental health problems in the last 12 months, other aspects of help-seeking, and perceived barriers.

Regardless of national boundaries, mental health care organizations and professionals from around the world face many of the same issues," said Dr. Greg Fricchione, director of the Carter Centers Mental Health Program. "Mental illnesses are now known to contribute greatly to the global burden of disease. Indeed much of the disability we see around the world, both in developed and developing countries, can be traced to mental and neuropsychiatric disorders. This conference will bring together the worlds premier promotion and prevention scientists to begin closely collaborating to meet this major public health challenge ...

The concept of mental health recovery promotes collaborative partnership among consumers, carers and service providers. However views on mental health recovery are less explored among carers and service providers. The aim of this review was to analyse contemporary literature exploring views of mental health consumers, carers and service providers in relation to their understanding of the meaning of mental health recovery and factors influencing mental health recovery. The literature review questions were: How is mental health recovery and factors influencing mental health recovery viewed by consumers, carers and service providers? What are the differences and similarities in those perceptions? How can the outcomes and recommendations inform the Australian mental health practices? A review of the literature used selected electronic databases and specific search terms and supplemented with manual searching ...
Downloadable! The question of whether there is a lasting effect of childhood experience on mental health has eluded causal measurement. We draw upon identical twin data and econometric instrumentation to provide an unbiased answer. We find that 55% of a one standard deviation change in mental health due to idiosyncratic experience at age 9 will still be present three years later. Extending the analysis, we find such persistence to vary with age at impact, gender, and mental health sub-categories. This investigation allows us to get a grasp on the degree to which childhood events influence health and socio-economic outcomes by way of their lagged effect on subsequent mental health. A better understanding of the evolution of mental health also helps identifying when mental health issues can be most effectively treated.
Past research has established the intergenerational patterning of mental health: children whose parents have mental health problems are more likely to present with similar problems themselves. However, there is limited knowledge about the extent to which factors related to the childs own social context, such as peer relationships, matter for this patterning. The aim of the current study was to examine the role of childhood peer status positions for the association in mental health across two generations. The data were drawn from a prospective cohort study of 14,608 children born in 1953, followed up until 2016, and their parents. Gender-specific logistic regression analysis was applied. Firstly, we examined the associations between parental mental health problems and childhood peer status, respectively, and the childrens mental health problems in adulthood. Secondly, the variation in the intergenerational patterning of mental health according to peer status position was investigated. The results

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

This module will introduce students to the main sociological and psychiatric perspectives on mental health and illness. The role of the mental health professions and the changing role of psychiatry will be studied, alongside other associated mental health professions and practitioners. Students will also study the social patterning of mental health and illness, and consider variations according to age, gender, social class and ethnicity. Attention will also be paid to those experiencing mental illness, and the role and influence of representative user groups on mental health policy and legislation will be critically appraised. The module aims to show how our knowledge and understanding of mental illness have changed over time, as well as indicate the problematic nature of the definition of mental illness. This module will also compare formative models of treatment and recovery in the UK with other historical and geographical approaches to mental health and illness, in order to provide a ...
Objective: Examine the association of health risk behavior clusters with mental health status among US college students. Participants: 105,781 US college students who completed the Spring 2011 National College Health Assessment. Methods: We utilized the latent class analysis to determine clustering of health risk behaviors (alcohol binge drinking, cigarette/marijuana use, insufficient physical activity, and fruit/vegetable consumption), and chi-square and ANOVA analyses to examine associations between the class membership and mental health (mental health diagnoses, psychological symptoms, and self-injurious thoughts/behaviors). Results: Three classes were identified with differing rates of binge drinking, substance use, and insufficient physical activity but similar rates of insufficient fruit/vegetable consumption. Students classified with the highest rates of binge drinking and cigarette/marijuana use had the highest rates across all mental health variables compared to other classes. ...
Pupils and staff at Rydal Penrhos turned out in yellow to mark World Mental Health Day.. The global event took place on Monday, October 10, and the school community donated £1 to wear a yellow item, with all proceeds going towards YoungMinds UK.. Nearly 80,000 children and young people suffer from severe depression and on average, three children in every classroom in the UK have a diagnosable mental health disorder.. The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day as an opportunity to raise "awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health".. ...
This movement is similar in conceptualization with that being promoted in other related clinical areas of medicine that have very large impacts on current and future health costs, notably diabetes and related metabolic syndromes [125-127]. As with the move to define pre-diabetes (an intermediate state between normal and clearly raised blood glucose concentrations), it is entirely possible to define emerging mental disorders by their intermediate symptom levels, impacts on function, patterns of persistence over time or predictive capacity [21, 22, 56, 57]. Further, it is possible to design new health care platforms to increase the access to care for young people presenting with these conditions [53, 55].. Importantly, the same types of concerns arise in the arenas for both pre-diabetes and early intervention in mental health [51, 128]. That is, as the number of individuals identified by health systems grows, and those with less severe forms come into active clinical care, the extent to which ...
Childrens sleep, mental health are related Toddlers who take a long time to fall asleep or wake up many times during the night have put many a desperate mom and dad to the test. Tired parents are often told that night waking is part of toddlerhood, and that it will soon pass on its own, but this is not the case for everyone. ...
Background. Using the theoretical framework of the Self Regulation Model (SRM), many studies have demonstrated that beliefs individuals hold about their physical health problems are important in predicting health outcomes. This study tested the SRM in the context of a mental health problem, schizophrenia. Method. One hundred and twenty-four people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia were assessed on measures of symptom severity, beliefs about their mental health problems, coping and appraisal of outcome at two time points, 6 months apart. Results. Using multivariate analyses and controlling for severity of symptoms, beliefs about mental health were found to be significant predictors of outcome. Beliefs about greater negative consequences were the strongest and most consistent predictors of a poorer outcome in both cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses. Conclusions. These results suggest that the SRM is a promising model for mental health problems and may highlight important areas for ...

Cancer patients who have a history of mental health problems are more likely to experience depression and poor quality of life following cancer diagnosis. However, a history of mental health problems may also confer increased risk of mortality. This may occur because of later stage of diagnosis, because of poorer adherence to cancer treatment, or because of poorer health behaviors. It may also occur through a psychoneuroimmunological pathway in which patients who are highly distressed have poorer immune functioning. This study will examine these questions in a sample of breast cancer patients previously treated through the breast cancer multidisciplinary clinic at Siteman Cancer Center.. Objectives: The objective of the study is to determine whether breast cancer patients with a self-reported history of frequent mental health problems have shorter survival than patients with infrequent mental health problems. In addition, the study will examine whether history of mental health problems interacts ...

Currently, there is no specific EU action on mental health - instead, the topic has become part of the EUs general chronic disease agenda. This obviously has an impact on its visibility and potential for EU action.. So, what next?. There is a need as well as a place for a comprehensive and broad-ranging EU Action Plan on Mental Health, like there have been Action Plans in other health and social areas (e.g. rare disorders, disability). All Member States are facing the same issues in relation to tackling mental ill-health, both with respect to prevention and mental health promotion as well as the development and implementation of effective and sustainable care provision models.. Member States can (continue to) benefit from cooperation, mutual learning and the exchange of good (and bad) practice. Previous EU-level actions have already prepared the ground for more ambitious and structured actions, which will actually engage the relevant policy makers as well as other stakeholders (e.g. ...
Teens are vulnerable to mental health issues that are transient, one-off problems that may never reoccur. These happen most often due to a major life event, including divorce or the death of a friend or family member. Many teens who may need psychological help to get through a trying period may not pursue the counseling because of a perceived stigma they attach to it. A study conducted by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found that among adolescents, boys are less willing to seek help from mental health (http://www.teenzeen.org/health-wellness.html) professionals than girls due to social stigmas or parental disapproval.. ...
HR professionals are keeping quiet about their own mental health issues because they are ashamed or fear it could hamper promotion chances, new research has shown. Of 1,070 HR professionals surveyed57.1% said they wouldnt be happy to disclose personal conditions such as depression within their department. The research, commissioned by national employment charity Shaw Trust, also found that just under one third would reveal a mental health condition to their line manager and only 17.9% would be happy to discuss an issue with other colleagues. One third felt ashamed and were worried about being treated differently, 16.7% were concerned that their employer would be unsympathetic, and the same number were worried that disclosing a mental health condition would affect their chances of promotion. Tim Cooper, Shaw Trust managing director, said: "We know that with the right support from their employers people with mental health conditions are perfectly capable of managing a job and their condition. We ...
Background While evidence on the cost of mental illness is growing, little is known about the cost-effectiveness of programmes in the areas of mental health promotion (MHP) and mental disorder prevention (MDP). The paper aims at identifying and assessing economic evaluations in both these areas to support evidence based prioritisation of resource allocation. Methods A systematic review of health and non health related bibliographic databases, complemented by a hand search of key journals and analysis of grey literature has been carried out. Study characteristics and results were qualitatively summarised. Economic evaluations of programmes that address mental health outcome parameters directly, those that address relevant risk factors of mental illness, as well as suicide prevention interventions were included, while evaluations of drug therapies were excluded. Results 14 studies fulfilled the inclusion criteria. They varied in terms of topic addressed, intervention used and study quality. Robust ...
Background And Objective It is important to pay attention to mental health in all aspects of ones life, both in ones personal and social life, as well as in ones career. Neglecting the issue of mental health may result in a decrease in the efficiency and loss of human resources. It can also cause physical and mental disorders. The present research aimed to study the mental health status in Shahid Rajaei Teaching Hospital in Qazvin. Four aspects of mental health including physical, social function, anxiety and depression were studied. Materials and Methods This research is a descriptive, cross- sectional study which was carried out from September to October 2008. The research population comprised all the employees in Shahid Rajaei Teaching Hospital and the sample comprised of 70 employees selected through randomized- stratified method. GHQ28 questionnaire was used for data collection and the analysis was done by SPSS software, using Anova and t-tests. Results Our findings showed disturbances in all
Overall, mental health and addiction staff in NGOs and primary health care gave a higher percentage of positive responses than those working in DHBs.. Kaumātua and programme cultural advisor Wi Keelan says the survey shows that Māori staff, particularly those working in kaupapa Māori mental health services, were feeling highly positive about their work.. But there are still challenges with accessing culturally competent care in the mental health and addiction services. The survey results give us an indication for what is required in our future work programmes.. Use of te reo Māori in services is low, as is the use of the Māori cultural practices of mihimihi and whakawhanaungatanga. This concerns me and is a sign there is more work to be done to achieve equity in mental health and addiction services for Māori. It is important that everyone, both Māori and non-Māori, working in mental health and addiction services contributes to whānau ora for Māori.. This includes making ...
This paper describes the study protocol for the development and evaluation of a mental health prevention program for SSAYA. Despite having a higher incidence of mental health problems than adults 25 years of age or over [39], only 1 in 4 young people with mental health problems receive professional help and there is a shortage of trained health professionals available to help them [63]. If successful, this online intervention will represent a significant step forward in terms of prevention and early intervention of mental health problems in SSAYA, and addressing barriers associated with stigma and geographic, social and financial isolation. The anticipated strengths and potential limitations of this study are detailed below.. The proposed program is unique and sophisticated, not only in targeting the mental health needs of SSAYA but in tailoring the program content to gender and symptom profile. The personalisation of this program and online nature may help to make it more attractive and ...

Womens Mental Health: Into the Mainstream (2002) described the mental health needs of women and, with its companion report Mainstreaming Gender and Womens Mental Health: Implementing Guidance (2003), set out the necessary steps to improve services to meet their distinct needs. Underpinning these recommendations was the principle that gender-awareness should be integrated or mainstreamed into all planning, commissioning, developing, delivering and evaluating of mental health services. The report brings together an account of progress on implementation of the recommendations in providing gender-specific and gender-sensitive mental health services to meet the needs of women. It determines that developments in gender-specific service provision remain patchy, variable and vulnerable, although some significant advances have been made in recognising womens special needs. The report draws upon 2 national surveys (in 2006 and 2007) of mental health trusts, a wide range of relevant government and ...
To better understand what happens inside the clinical setting, this chapter looks outside. It reveals the diverse effects of culture and society on mental health, mental illness, and mental health services. This understanding is key to developing mental health services that are more responsive to the cultural and social contexts of racial and ethnic minorities.

Today is national childrens mental health awareness day, which gives us a great opportunity to talk about a win for children mental health in this past legislative session. Thanks to a bill that passed this year, children dont have to worry about cuts to needed mental health services. Back in 2007, the legislature passed a bill that, among other things, upped to 20 per year the number of therapy visits children on Medicaid could make to a mental health professional (the limit had been 12 per year.) That provision was set to expire on July 1, 2010. This session, legislators passed a bill (HB 1373) to eliminate the expiration date on those services, allowing children to continue to get 20 therapy visits a year indefinitely.
Travellers experience some of the worst health outcomes in British society. A Traveller led community group wants to help combat this by creating a culturally appropriate and specific type of provision to support people struggling with their mental health. Traveller Pride has designed a survey to help gather meaningful data from ALL types of Travellers across the UK to help provide a broader understanding of the mental health picture and inform what future support they should offer.. So if youve suffered with your mental health now or in past Traveller Pride wants to hear from you. They want to know about your experiences accessing support, what your mental health has been like lately and what type of support you would want from any service in the future.. Mental health expert, Tyler Hatwell told Travellers Times: "As a Traveller myself, Ive found some help that was phenomenal and some that was dreadful, but just stories arent enough, if we get data to prove whats going on we can then apply ...
There will be more trained adults on the lookout every day to help students grappling with mental health issues as a grant from the Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation is implemented in the Hamburg Central Schools. The two-year grant totaling $75,000 will initially fund training for school counselors, social workers and psychologists in the 2016-17 school year. They will then train administrators, teachers, staff, parents/caregivers and other community members.. This addition to the districtwide safety net will help to identify children with social, emotional and behavioral challenges early on and connect them to appropriate services and resources. By raising awareness and providing a supportive environment, school personnel also hope to alleviate the stigma around mental health issues.. "Students struggling with mental health issues dont need to face their challenges alone," said Colleen Kaney, Assistant Superintendent of Student Services, Curriculum & Instruction. "Theyll always have ...
An annual health survey has indicated that more than one-in-four adults in the United Kingdom has been diagnosed with a mental illness at some point during their lives.. The survey assessed the mental health of 5,000 adults, with 26% stating that they have received a positive mental health diagnosis.. Depression was the most frequently reported mental illness, with nearly one-in-five (19%) people stating that they had been diagnosed with the condition.. It was notable that women were more likely to have been diagnosed with depression than men, although it should be said in mitigation that this could be due to females being more likely to visit general practitioners with such conditions.. Half of those who reported being diagnosed with a common mental disorder said that they had experienced the condition in the past 12 months.. In addition, around 10% of the population have engaged in what could be described as seriously self-destructive activity.. 3% of men and 5% of women reported that they had ...
March 8, 2017. By MICHAEL WILSON. As former minister of finance, I understand the weighty responsibility of allocating funds, and the fine balance between addressing pressing issues of the day, and sowing the seeds for future prosperity.. When I first joined the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) as board chair, our work was contributing to an important dialogue around the need for increased mental health funding. For the first time in decades, this reality is materializing, as the federal government targets funding to mental health in the new health accord.. However, as Drs. Goldbloom and Gratzer recently emphasized in their eloquent and persuasive article ("Money yes - But Mental Health Needs a Plan," Globe and Mail, Jan. 25 2017), achieving successful outcomes from these investments will greatly depend on the choice of careful, thoughtful implementation strategies. Crucial to this effort are the road maps laid out inChanging Directions, Changings Lives: The Mental Health Strategy for ...
Open: Mon-Thurs - 8am to 6pm. Mental health is how people think, feel and act as they face lifes situations. It affects how people handle stress, relate to one another and make decisions.

Certain stress-causing factors in the environment can trigger a mental health disorder. Death or divorce can lead a person into depression. There are people who cannot handle the pain of separation. Another stressor could be a dysfunctional family life. Living with people with whom a person cannot experience love and care, can make that person hateful and full of anger. This will ultimately lead to the development of negative feelings like inadequacy, poor self-esteem and loneliness.. Other environmental factors include changing jobs or school, social or cultural expectations and substance abuse by persons around him.. However, only a mental health professional can give an accurate diagnosis of the causes of a given disorder. It takes a professional help to correct or treat mental health disorder. But people around a person suffering from mental disorder can always help create an environment where the person can feel acceptance, love and care. It will not be easy to live with persons suffering ...
The organization Mental Health America estimates that 54 million Americans have some form of mental health issue in any given year. For some people, the emergence of the illness is caused by something that can be spotted and addressed, such as an addiction. For others, the illness is caused by something deep-set, such as genetics. For still others, the issue emerges due to some sort of crisis or circumstance.. Clearly, the causes of mental health disorders can be deeply variable, and that makes identifying triggers very difficult. But when an illness is in play, there are often clear-cut and understandable symptoms people can look for.. ...

The findings in the study came from examination of the surveys and concluded that most of the women were satisfied with their lives in an overall sense. However, they were also experiencing moderate levels of stress, depression, and anxiety. Nearly one quarter of the mothers surveyed had significant symptoms of depression. The negative mental health symptoms correlated with attitudes about intensive mothering. Those who described themselves as intense mothers were more likely to have negative mental health consequences.. The study also took into account the level of family support and how it affected the mothers mental health. Those women who believed that mothers are the most important and the primary caregivers were less satisfied with their lives. Furthermore, those women who described parenting as challenging and as more difficult than work and other tasks, were much more likely to be stressed and to have symptoms of depression.. If being an intensive mother is so damaging to well-being and ...
While the federal and provincial governments have recently announced funding for mental health initiatives to support vulnerable groups, pregnant and postpartum women have been forgotten so far. World Maternal Mental Health Day went unacknowledged this month by both our prime minister and premier, while advocates highlighted that #NowMoreThanEver, a national perinatal mental health strategy, is needed to ensure universal screening and timely access to treatment.. Our leaders did remember to issue messages for Mothers Day a few days later, but mothers deserve more than praise for what they do for their families. They deserve help when they are struggling, and its time our governments took action to support maternal mental wellness during this time of crisis.. Tanya Nayler is an Ottawa mother expecting her second child in June. ...

The Inter-Venture Trial is a cluster-randomised controlled trial of three intervention modalities developed involving active youth, family and community engagement in the Montreal area: (i) Systematic school-based screening and early personality-targeted interventions for students most at risk of mental health problems and substance misuse (Preventure program); (ii) Community-based parent training program and (iii) Timely and integrated services provided by a multidisciplinary team of professionals (Inter-Action).. The trial will assess the potential effects of some of the components of the intervention model in 45 secondary schools that will be randomly assigned to two intervention conditions (receiving Inter-Action services and the parent training program in addition to Preventure or receiving the Preventure program and the parent training program) and a control arm that will receive treatment as usual. Schools will be matched on their baseline socio-economic status. Approximately 4000 ...
Our study was designed to identify the difference in the mental health status among hospitalized patients due to occupational diseases and accidents and pre-employment physical examinees, and to identify the relationship between mental health status and socio-demographic variables, and to provide information useful to non-psychiatric clinicians in caring of such patients. Samples were comprised of 189 pneumoconiotic patients, 132 industrial accident-induced patients and 122 pre-employment physical examinees who were interviewed with 90-item symptom cheklist(SCL-90). The following results were obtained: 1) Mean scores of symptom dimension on socio-demographic subgroup showed higher tendencies in older aged, male, lower educated, miner, married, mining residence, and pnemoconiotic patients. 2) Mean scores of total samples on all symptom dimensions were as follows in the order of their magnitudes; Depression, Somatization, Obsessive-compulsive, Anxiety, Psychoticism, Interpersonal sensitivity, ...
Mental health disorders represent 14 percent of the global burden of disease (Tomlinson et al., 2009), and approximately $150 billion in lost productivity in the United States (Rice and Miller, 1998). In June 2012, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) reported that nearly one in five elder (ages 65 and older) adults in the United States has one or more mental health and-or substance use conditions (IOM, 2012), with mood disorders being their most significant source of emotional anguish and distress (Unutzer et al., 2002). Mood disorders account for an augmented risk for premature mortality (Harris and Barraclough, 1998), increased morbidity (Kessler et al., 2007), and escalating rates of disability (Murray and Lopez, 1997), yet most elders receive no mental health treatment (IOM, 2012).. Although minority elders represent a rapidly increasing segment of an aging U.S. population, they have limited access to mental health care, lagging well behind non-Latino whites. Minority elders suffer disparities ...

There is still a long way to go before Australian society is free of mental health stigmas and adequate services are funded and accessible. This is especially important for Australians who are at the intersections of multiple oppressions. But there has been progress, as a number of recent initiatives illustrate. By Bree Alexander
In the adjusted analysis, BMI, income, chronic problems and sports injuries that affect current daily living remained significantly associated with Mental Health (all p<0.05). These variables predicted 13.5% of the variation in the Mental Health scores among former athletes. The variables with the largest association with Mental Health were BMI (β=−0.238; R2=0.069) and income (β=0.224; R2=0.030). The use of non-prescription medicine (p=0.169), marital status (p=0.109) and vigorous LTPA (p=0.052) lost significant association with Mental Health after adjusting for confounders (Table 3).. Discussion. This study found that BMI, sports injuries that affect current daily living and chronic problems were significant predictors of Physical Fitness and Mental Health scores among former athletes. Economic factors such as employment and income were also predictors of HRQoL summaries (Physical Fitness and Mental Health, respectively. These variables predicted more than 30% of the variation in scores of ...

The awareness of mental health problems in women of reproductive age has increased worldwide in the recent decades. Much research has focused on symptoms of depression in women and the risk of postpartum depression, as a factor of attachment problems and adverse health effects on the newborn and growing child. Less research has explored risk factors for mental problems during pregnancy and childbirth. Pregnancy can be challenging to a womans mental health as posttraumatic stress, fear of childbirth as well as past and present abuse can surface to influence the perinatal period and delivery outcome. Cesarean sections (CS), which also may be linked to mental health problems, have tripled in Sweden over the past 30 years. The aim of this thesis was to investigate mental ill-health identified through markers in pregnancy records; mental disorders associated with different modes of delivery; and analyze risk factors associated with mental health status among childbearing women in Malmö, Sweden. ...
Publication date: Available online 13 September 2019Source: Mental Health & PreventionAuthor(s): Karin Schuller, Felix WeissAbstractThe prevalence of mental health problems among the working population has increased sharply since the turn of the millennium in Germany. Secondary analyses of the BIBB/BAuA employment surveys from 1999, 2006 and 2012 showed that, whereas in 1999 only about 4 to 6% of respondents reported mental health problems, this number had grown to 20% or higher in 2012. In this article, we investigate if this sharp increase in mental health problems, measured in terms of self-reported regular occurren ...

Developed by the AETC Mental Health Committee for the Integrating Mental Health and Substance Abuse Care into HIV Primary Care Toolkit. This tool contains information about recommended capacities to consider when implementing mental health/substance use care strategies in a clinic or health center. This assessment may be completed individually by each member of a clinic team or collectively as a group to assist your team in providing best practice mental health/substance use care for persons with HIV in your program. Since every clinic and every patient population is different, there is no single way to be a best-practice. Providing best-practice is an ongoing process of evaluation, implementation, and re-evaluation. The accompanying flowcharts were developed to assist trainers and clinics in establishing a process for implementing care integration. ...

The `Staying healthy: Behaviours and services used by farmers and fishers study conducted by Professor Sue Kilpatrick, Research Professor of Regional Communities, Alfred Deakin Research Institute, at Deakin Universitys Warrnambool Campus, is investigating the processes farmers and fishers use to achieve and maintain good physical and mental health in difficult times. Professor Kilpatrick said most participants rated their health as good or very good but about half rated their mood as average or poor at least once over a three month period. "Farmers were generally more aware of the need to look after their mental health than fishers," she said. "Both are very isolated but more so fishers and like farmers they also have the weather to worry about, high levels of debt and changes to industry regulations and quotas. "The fishing participants were less likely to mention deliberate attention to mental wellbeing and rarely mentioned social connectedness as part of their health maintenance strategy. ...
Version imprimable. By Carolyn Shimmin. In January 2009 the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) released its first draft framework of a Canadian mental health strategy for public discussion. Entitled, Toward Recovery and Well-Being: A Framework for a Mental Health Strategy in Canada, the Commission held stakeholders conferences across the country as well as an electronic consultation on their website to get public feedback on the document. Divided into eight goals, the framework includes some good recommendations, such as a recovery-oriented mental health system in which people are able to make meaningful choices of services and supports (with a funding mechanism that allows individuals to make such choices). Though the framework appears to be a step in the right direction, one thing is glaringly apparent-as with all documents published by the Commission to date, it does not include a sex- and gender-based analysis.. Health research continues to document that sex and gender do matter-in ...
