The growing trend in the use of the Internet and social media as a method of self-managing illness presents a critical opportunity to better understand the role of pro-anorexia (pro-ana) websites for eating disorders. Therefore, 155 pro-ana website messages regarding criticism that the site was responsible for developing anorexia were inductively thematically analysed. The analysis revealed five main themes: eating disorders are mental illnesses and websites do not cause mental illness, pro-ana websites and eating disorders are more than wanting to be thin (with sub-theme residents and visitors), eating disorders develop regardless of pro-ana websites, pro-ana sites do not cause eating disorders but they may trigger or encourage them (with sub-theme the problem is the user, not the site) and pro-ana sites provide support...

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an important and often neglected comorbidity of pregnancy; left untreated, it can lead to serious health complications for the mother and developing fetus. Structured interviews were conducted to identify risk factors of PTSD among culturally diverse women with depressive symptomatology receiving perinatal services at community obstetric/gynecologic clinics. Women abused as adults, with two or more instances of trauma, greater trauma severity, insomnia, and low social support were more likely to present perinatal PTSD symptoms...

The aim of this study was to find out how patients in clinical multidisciplinary MHC want R/S to be addressed in their care. METHODS: Thirty-five semi-structured interviews were carried out between September 2015 and July 2016 among patients in a secular and a Christian MHC in the Netherlands...

The purpose of this environmental scan was to increase understanding of immigrant women's perinatal mental health care services within the interior of a western Canadian province...

The art of understanding in forensic psychiatric care is discussed from a caring science perspective, based on a lifeworld approach. The aim is to contribute knowledge that can support staff, who daily meet patients on forensic psychiatric wards, in applying a caring attitude...

This study investigates what needs to be considered in our current health services to appropriately respond to abused Korean immigrant women. Using a community-based participatory approach, this qualitative interpretive description analyzed counseling documents and semi-structured interviews. Data analyses suggested that intimate partner violence (IPV) screening for ethnic minority women in health care settings can be improved by informing patients about the role of health care providers in addressing IPV, establishing rapport before IPV screening, assuring confidentiality is maintained, respecting Korean immigrant women's unique perspectives and response toward IPV, providing translation services, and collaborating with ethnic minority women's community organizations...

In the United States, nearly one in five adolescents has a diagnosable mental health disorder. Beginning in the teenage years, adolescents become less reliant on their parents for support and begin to turn to their peer group for support; therefore, it is important to understand the role of peers during this developmental time, especially in relation to mental health. The purpose of this project is to review the literature regarding positive peer support and mental health in adolescence. CINAHL, PubMed, and PsycINFO were used to conduct the review...

This study aimed to assess hopelessness in 170 hospitalized individuals with recent suicide attempt and examine its association with patients' characteristics, with a view to improving awareness in health professionals and especially nurses, who are among the first to take care of these patients. Participants completed Beck Hopelessness Scale and Beck Depression Inventory. More than half (51.18%) experienced moderate-to-severe hopelessness. A multiple linear regression analysis showed that age, attempted suicide method, past suicide attempt, and psychiatric diagnosis contributed statistically significantly to hopelessness prediction...

This article examines clinician experience in adopting a contemporary psychodynamic model of care by exploring the experiences and perspectives of staff at an Australian hospital-based sexual assault service (SAS), reflecting then on implications for how to best engage clinicians in a model of care change and training. The Conversational Model of Therapy (CMT) is a contemporary psychodynamic approach integrating evidence from developmental psychology, neuroscience and trauma. Training was provided in the CMT approach to Short-Term Intensive Psychodynamic Psychotherapy seeking to enable the service to better provide for the needs of adult clients with less recent sexual assault experiences and/or those able to receive a short-term psychotherapy...

Participants defined psychotic symptoms as symptoms requiring prevention and good care, which caregivers must learn to live with. Caregivers were reported to have "acquired experience in controlling psychotic symptoms and recognizing frequency, timing, content, warning signs, and patient response...

Participants were 32 youths (16 experimental and 16 control participants), assessed at pre-test, post-test, and one-month follow-up. The programme incorporated five protective factors associated with resilience: self-esteem, self-regulation, relational skills, problem-solving skills, and goal-setting skills. There were significant group-by-time interaction effects for resilience, anxiety, and problem drinking at one-month follow-up...

There are over one million post-9/11 military caregivers in the United States who face a variety of stressors inherent to caring for an incapacitated loved one. Mind-body interventions, such as the Stress Management and Resilience Training Relaxation Response Resiliency Program (SMART-3RP), have been shown to reduce stress and improve overall health and functioning. The present qualitative study aims to explore stressors experienced by military caregivers in their caregiving role and to assess attitudes towards the virtual delivery of the SMART-3RP...
