REVIEW
Nick Weaver, Michael Coffey, Jeanette Hewitt
INTRODUCTION: The increased complexity of community mental health services, and associated fragmentation of traditional dividing lines between services, has underscored the centrality of care continuity and coordination in modern mental healthcare. However, clarification of the key features of the care continuity concept has proved difficult and a consensus has not been reached. AIM/QUESTION: This review draws together and critically examines latest evidence concerning concepts, models and scales based on a multi-dimensional understanding of care continuity...

EDITORIAL
L M Reynolds, P Hodge, A Simpson
Today the use of digital technology available to inform, train and educate is ubiquitous, with everyday lives seemingly becoming immersed in technology (Howard-Jones 2011). Further, the recently published UK digital strategy provides the structure to enable free access to digital skills training for everyone in the UK (Department for Culture Media and Sport 2017). As part of the digital technology toolset, serious games hold the promise of relatively low risk experiential learning-curves that are engaging, fun and desirable...

AIM: Mental-healthcare staff were interviewed to build on existing evidence of issues with the prevention approach and explore, from a staff perspective, how self-harm prevention impacts on service-users, how they manage distress and how this impacts on staff approach to care. METHODS: Qualitative methods were used to allow unexpected themes to arise...

H Zhou, J Peng, D Wang, L Kou, F Chen, M Ye, Y Deng, J Yan, S Liao
WHAT IS KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT?: Studies show that psychological capital (PsyCap) is a protective factor against psychological distress, such as depressive symptoms. However, few have attempted to address the role of coping styles in the relationship between PsyCap and psychological distress. WHAT DOES THIS PAPER ADD TO EXISTING KNOWLEDGE?: Our study found moderate levels of PsyCap among nurses in China. Among the subcategories of PsyCap, optimism and hope were most highly correlated with psychological distress...

Kim Barron, Graham Sloan, Ruth Deery
INTRODUCTION: There is increasing emphasis in policy, research and practice in the UK and internationally on the importance of caring in health care.

AIM: Based on data taken from semi-structured interviews with community mental health nurses this paper aims to describe interpretations and perspectives of compassion to gain insight and development of its meaning METHOD: A naturalistic, interpretive approach was taken to the study...

Handovers assure a timely and correct information transfer while socializing workers to the service's culture, however no study describes them as instruments to document organizational change and only a few have focused on psychiatric settings.

METHOD: Emotional Text Analysis (ETA) was used to analyze the MHWs' handovers completed from 1990 to 2011...

INTRODUCTION: Studies have found family interventions (FIs) to be effective in reducing stress and relapse rates for a variety of mental health conditions. However, implementing FIs into clinical practice is challenging. Studies have suggested levels of stress within some families of people with intellectual disabilities can be high. However, there is little reported about the use, and implementation of FIs, such as Behavioural Family Therapy (BFT), in adult intellectual disability services...

The purpose of this essay is to explore the long-term impact of depression on cognitive functioning and to discuss possible treatment strategies that mental health and psychiatric nurses may employ in practice or pursue in research to improve patient outcomes. As psychiatric and mental health nurses play a valuable role in promoting recovery from depression, addressing cognitive difficulties associated with depression may be an important area for nursing practice. This essay will first introduce the rationale for evaluating cognitive deficits in remitted depression in regards to the impact on quality of life (QOL)...

INTRODUCTION: Youth mental health is a global concern. Emotional health promotes mental health and protects against mental illness. Youth value self-care for emotional health, but we need better understanding of how to help them look after their emotional health. Participatory research is relevant, since meaningful engagement with youth via participatory research enhances the validity and relevance of research findings and supports young people's rights to involvement in decisions that concern them...

WHAT IS KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT?: In general, the current studies of positive mental health use questionnaires or parts thereof. However, while these questionnaires evaluate aspects of positive mental health, they fail to measure the construct itself. WHAT DOES THIS PAPER ADD TO EXISTING KNOWLEDGE?: The widespread use and the lack of specific questionnaires for evaluating the positive mental health construct justify the need to measure the robustness of the Positive Mental Health Questionnaire. Also six factors are proposed to measure positive mental health...
