Julia Bocking, Stephanie B Ewart, Brenda Happell, Chris Platania-Phung, Robert Stanton, Brett Scholz
BACKGROUND: People diagnosed with mental illness (hereinafter "consumers") have higher rates of chronic disease and significantly shorter lives than the wider population. Peer workers have become increasingly involved in facilitating access to physical health care, yet the consumer perspective regarding peer involvement is unknown. This absent voice is needed to inform strategic planning and generate solutions to address the current inequity in health status. AIM: To articulate the views of consumers in regards to the potential use of peer workers to further the physical health of people with mental illness...

Anne C Krendl, Jonathan B Freeman
BACKGROUND: Although mental health stigmatization has myriad pernicious consequences, it remains unknown whether mental disorders are stigmatized for the same reasons. AIMS: This study identified the stigma-related beliefs that were associated with several common mental illnesses (Study 1), and the extent to which those beliefs predicted stigmatization (Study 2). METHODS: In Study 1, we used multidimensional scaling to identify the stigma-related beliefs attributed to nine common mental disorders (e...

BACKGROUND: Cognitive emotion regulation strategies (CERS) have been shown to moderate the influence of War Experiences (WE) on mental health problems. AIMS: This study assessed the influence of WE and use of specific CERS on mental health problems among war-affected youth in Northern Uganda. METHODS: Five hundred and thirty-nine participants in an ongoing war-affected youth study (WAYS) were assessed by locally developed measures. CERS were measured by Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (CERQ)...

Eun-Young Park, Jung-Hee Kim
BACKGROUND: Hope is an important coping strategy and psychological resource for patients with a chronic illness. Stroke patients are exposed to stressful situations such as limited daily life activities, cognitive impairments and financial burdens. AIM: This study investigated the factor structure of the Dispositional Hope Scale (DHS) and verified its validity when examining stroke patients. METHODS: This methodological study used secondary, cross-sectional data analysis to investigate the factors related to participation restriction in chronic stroke patients...

Jennifer J Bowdoin, Rosa Rodriguez-Monguio, Elaine Puleo, David Keller, Joan Roche
BACKGROUND: The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model is designed to improve health outcomes while containing the cost of care. However, the evidence is inconclusive. AIMS: The aim of this study was to examine the associations between receipt of care consistent with the PCMH and healthcare services utilization and expenditures for non-elderly adults with mental illness in the USA. METHOD: A surveillance study was conducted using self-reported data for 6908 non-elderly adults with mental illness participating in the 2007-2012 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey...

Ji-Wei Sun, Ping-Zhen Lin, Hui-Hui Zhang, Jia-Huan Li, Feng-Lin Cao
BACKGROUND: Stressful situations can increase the likelihood of nurses experiencing negative emotions, especially burnout. AIMS: To explore the association of cumulative exposure to occupational stressors and emotion regulation strategies with nurses' burnout. METHODS: Participants were 602 nurses from three general hospitals in Jinan, China. Social demographic characteristics, occupational stress, burnout, and emotion regulation strategies (cognitive reappraisal, expressive suppression, and rumination), were assessed...

Katherine Newman-Taylor, Christie Garner, Elizabeth Vernon-Wilson, Karlien H W Paas, Lesley Herbert, Sheena K Au-Yeung
BACKGROUND: The development of safe and effective mental health services is a priority. This requires valid measures of personal recovery, yet these tools are not embedded in routine clinical practice. Brief "patient reported measures" are most likely to be acceptable to service-users and clinicians. The 4-item "Hope, Agency and Opportunity" (HAO) was co-produced to assess recovery outcomes and experience of mental health services. AIM: To evaluate the psychometric properties of the HAO...

BACKGROUND: The five facets mindfulness questionnaire-short form (FFMQ-SF) is a new, brief measure for the assessment of mindfulness skills in clinical and nonclinical samples. The construct validity of the FFMQ-SF has not been previously assessed in community samples. AIMS: The present study investigated the factor structure of the Italian version of the FFMQ-SF. METHOD: Structured equation modeling was used to test the fit of three alternative models in a sample of highly educated adults (nā€‰=ā€‰211)...

BACKGROUND: Pet therapy is becoming increasingly popular and is used in a variety of ways from encouraging communication in older adults to improving wellbeing in those with serious mental illness. Increasingly Universities have been offering pet therapy to students in an effort to reduce stress. However, little evidence currently exists to support the effectiveness of reducing measurable stress levels after a standalone drop-in unstructured session. The University of Sheffield's Counselling Service works in partnership with Guide Dogs for the Blind to give students access to calm, well-trained animals for informal group stress relief...

Understanding the difficulties faced by veterans could help focus treatments and improve outcomes. AIMS: To survey a representative sample of treatment-seeking veterans to explore their mental health needs. METHODS: A random sample of UK veterans who had engaged with a national mental health charity in the UK was drawn...

BACKGROUND: A history of traumatic brain injury (TBI) is prevalent in children and adolescents within the health system, which may be accompanied with higher rates of poor mental health outcomes including anxiety and other psychiatric disorders.

BACKGROUND: Community-managed mental health organisations are important vehicles for "place-based" recovery-oriented services in regional areas. However, the community-based sector is not well described in data collections and more research is needed to identify the specific contributions that such services can make to recovery. This situation has become more acute in Australia with the restructure of mental health services under the new National Disabilities Insurance Scheme (NDIS). AIMS: The project aimed to understand more about what is effective in the service system; what impacts living in a regional location might have on a person's lived and service system experience and what people find helpful and supportive in their recovery journeys...

Clara A M Sage, Samantha K Brooks, Neil Greenberg
BACKGROUND: There is evidence that "Type II trauma" (TTT) - repeated exposure to traumatic events - can lead to the development of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). TTT frequently occurs in occupational groups working with children who are themselves victims of trauma. AIM: To conduct a systematic review identifying risk factors for/protective factors against TTT-associated mental ill-health in employees working with traumatised children and explore how this type of work impacts upon social functioning...

BACKGROUND: This is one of a number of programmatic studies on the allocation of scarce medical resources. AIMS: This study investigated whether certain characteristics about patients influence the priority they are assigned for a scarce mental health treatment. Similar studies for physical treatments have found that young, poor, and mentally healthy patients are given the highest priority. METHOD: Each participant completed one questionnaire where they ranked a list of eight hypothetical patients in order of priority for treatment for anorexia or obesity...
