The discourse of recovery has been co-opted by and pervades many standards of mental health service delivery. I want to consider what this means for mood disorders in a clinical context in which the medical model is the primary approach to treatment. The core concept in recovery discourse is concerned with living well in the presence or absence of mental illness and the many losses that may come in its wake, such as isolation, poverty, unemployment, and discrimination (Mental Health Commission 2012).

INTRODUCTION: Women's Enhanced Medium Secure Services (WEMSS) are bespoke, gender-sensitive services which opened in the UK in 2007 at three pilot sites. This study is the first of its kind to explore the experiences of WEMSS staff, directly comparing them to staff in a standard medium secure service for women. The literature to date has focused on the experiences of service users, or staff views on working with women in secure care. AIM: This qualitative study, embedded in a multi-method evaluation of WEMSS, aimed to explore the views and experiences of staff in WEMSS and comparator medium secure services...

Physical restraint involves "any direct physical contact where the intervener's intention is to prevent, restrict, or subdue movement of the body, or part of the body of another person" (Dept. of Health, 2014 p.26). Such restrictive interventions are used to take control of situations deemed to be dangerous, where there is a real possibility of harm being caused, if no action were to be taken. The actions are designed to end, or significantly reduce, the danger presented to the patient or others including staff (Dept...

This knowledge is required to improve our understanding and provide a foundation for improving clinical practice. AIMS: To review existing research literature in order to investigate adult psychiatric patients' reported perceptions of situations before, during and after specific and defined types of coercive measures; and to investigate what patients perceive as moderating factors, in regard to the use of these coercive measures...

Work-family conflict is associated with negative consequences in nurses including physical illnesses and mental disorders. WHAT THIS STUDY ADDS TO EXISTING KNOWLEDGE: Past research on this topic has not examined the mechanisms for the effect of work family conflict on depression...

WHAT IS KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT?: Implementation of user participation is described as a change from a paternalistic healthcare system to ideals of democratization where users' voices are heard in relational interplays with health professionals. The ideological shift involves a transition from welfare dependency and professional control towards more active service-user roles with associated rights and responsibilities. A collaborative relationship between users and professionals in mental health services is seen as important by both parties...

RATIONALE FOR THE STUDY: Many Chinese people do not contact mental health services when they first develop mental health problems. It is therefore important to find out reasons for low uptake of services so that strategies can be identified to promote early intervention. WHAT IS ALREADY KNOWN ABOUT THE TOPIC?: Most Chinese people only come into contact with mental health services during crisis situations. Language difference, lack of knowledge of mainstream services and stigma attached to mental health problems are barriers to access and utilize mental health services...

BACKGROUND: The recovery process of a psychiatric patient is related to his primary informal caregiver's style of coping with stress. There is insufficient literature on validations of instruments that measure coping styles in this population. OBJECTIVE: To adapt and validate a scale to measure coping strategies in primary informal caregivers. METHOD: The adapted scale was based on the Extreme Coping Scale of López-Vázquez and Marván. Items from that scale were adapted for application to informal caregivers...

This paper incorporates the existing literature to offer a broader cultural perspective on the experiences of a nurse with a mental illness...

Presented as part of the Ellen Skellern lifetime achievement award in 2016 this paper reflects on a career in mental health nursing and academia spanning 53 years. The presentation offers a series of key lessons learned in that time. They include observations on health care organisations, educational experiences, the nursing profession and the illusion of permanence in health care service organisations and the buildings that house them. The paper offers an account of how a profession must constantly develop to be relevant and how the demolition of both buildings and organisations have been a fact of life in the five decades reported...
