Forensic mental health nursing is a complex role and there is a tension between maintaining safety and promoting a therapeutic and patient centred approach. The use of restrictive practises such as seclusion is an issue. Two focus groups with registered nurses exploring attitudes and factors used in decision-making about seclusion use were analysed using interpretive description. Participants described the need to reduce the use of seclusion and the problematic nature of its utility as an ongoing intervention in contemporary mental healthcare...

Globally, mental disorders affect 25% of the society. This discursive paper aims to illustrate the mental health literacy levels in the public. Mental health literacy (MHL) is the understanding of mental health conditions, which helps in their prevention, recognition and treatment. Unfortunately, the public has minimal understanding of mental disorders, leading to poor recognition and delay in treatment. There is a need to conduct good quality research to assess the MHL levels among public and tailor interventions to enhance MHL among the public...

Wei Liu, Ya-Min Li, Ying Peng
The purpose of this study is to examine and compare the US and Chinese Bachelor of Nursing students' beliefs about prognosis and long-term outcomes for people with depression and schizophrenia following interventions. A total of 310 nursing students in the US (n = 152) and China (n = 158) completed a survey questionnaire between April 2016 and April 2017. Overall, the Chinese students rated prognosis and outcomes more negatively than did the US students. The main finding suggests the need for cultural-specific pedagogical considerations to be given to mental health education in undergraduate nursing curricula in the US and China...

Caring for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can be a demanding challenge to caregivers. The aim of this study was to learn what caring for children with ASD means to caregivers who live in rural Thailand. A hermeneutic phenomenological approach was used to analyze narrative data from interviews of five caregivers. Three themes emerged: (a) being sensitive to the word autism, (b) being trapped in a tunnel of distress, and (c) being the universe for the child. Healthcare professionals need to be sensitive to the caregivers' cultural customs in order to meet their expectations in a respectful way...

Ongoing education of experienced psychiatric nurses is imperative given the historically complex health presentations of psychiatric patients. Psychiatric patients tend to have medical co-morbidities and often do not have the financial resources for preventative health care. The hospitalization for acute psychiatric stabilization, is an opportunity for psychiatric nurses to teach and advocate for patients' physiological and psychological health. Documentation of patients' changes in condition and overall clinical presentation, is necessary to ensure patients' health care needs are met...

Nurses' professional role perception is related to the quality and safety of care. Limited data exist regarding professional role perception in community mental health nurses (CMHNs). The aim of the present study was to investigate the living experience of Greek-Cypriot CMHNs of their professional role. A phenomenological approach based on Munhall's methodology was applied. According to purposive sampling, five Greek-Cypriot CMHNs participated, following informed consent. The interplay of power relations between participants and mentally ill individuals during CMHNs' house calls was revealed as the core theme contributing to the perception of their status within their professional role...

Treatment pressure restricts patients' voluntary and autonomous decisions. Yet interventions involving treatment pressure are widely used in mental health and psychosocial services. This cross-sectional study explored whether mental health professionals' knowledge on five types of treatment pressure (no coercion, persuasion or conviction, leverage, threat, and formal coercion) was associated with sociodemographic, professional and contextual factors. A more positive attitude towards interventions involving treatment pressure was associated with underrating the level of those interventions compared with a predefined default value...

REVIEW
Erman Yıldız
Sexual minority populations are exposed to more forms of distress than heterosexual individuals, thereby increasing the risk of suicidal behavior. It therefore seems surprising that suicidal behavior in sexual minorities is not sufficiently addressed in the nursing literature.The aim of this review was to integrate evidence-based knowledge and experiences related to suicide in sexual minorities into the nursing literature. This study has been conducted according to PRISMA guidelines, which contains a basic systematic screening process...

REVIEW
Emily-May Barlow, Geoffrey L Dickens
AIM: To identify, critically evaluate, and synthesise the empirical evidence about therapeutic leave from mental health inpatient settings. BACKGROUND: "Leave" occurs when a mental health inpatient exits the hospital ward with the appropriate authorisation alone, or accompanied by staff, family, or friends. Limited research has previously addressed therapeutic as opposed to unauthorised leave, and the evidence-base has not been systematically evaluated...
