INTRODUCTION: Depression has been identified as the leading cause of disability worldwide. Nurses report higher rates of depression than the general public. Work-family conflict is challenging for nurses and may lead to depression and poor health. However, the mechanisms for the effect of work-family conflict on depression haven't been well understood. AIM: The objective is to use a cross-sectional design to examine the role of sleep disturbances in the association between work-family conflict and depressive symptoms in nurses...

INTRODUCTION: Implementation of user participation is considered important in today's mental health care. Research shows, however, that user participation lacks clarity and provokes uncertainty regarding shifting roles. AIM: To investigate negotiation of user participation in a micro-study of interplay between users and health professionals in community mental health care METHOD: This qualitative study is based on semi-structured in-depth interviews, involving ten service users and ten professionals in community mental health care in Norway...

INTRODUCTION: Late presentation and low utilisation of mental health services are common among Chinese populations. An understanding of their journey towards mental health care helps to identify timely and appropriate intervention. AIM: We aimed to examine how Chinese populations make sense of the experiences of mental distress, and how this understanding influences their pathways to mental health care. METHOD: We undertook in-depth interviews with fourteen people with mental health problems and sixteen family members...

INTRODUCTION: Patient and public involvement (PPI) is integral to UK health research guidance, however implementation is inconsistent. There is little research into the attitudes of NHS health researchers towards PPI. AIM: This study explored the attitude of researchers working in mental health and learning disability services in the UK towards PPI in health research. METHOD: Using a qualitative methodology, semi-structured interviews were conducted with a purposive sample of eight researchers...

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...

Curing 'homosexuality' or same-sex attraction has been a recurrent trope in Western psychiatry and mental health services for over a century. Despite the progress made in the UK with equality legislation, improvements in general social attitudes and the slowly increasing confidence of lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) individuals and communities (Carr, 2005), it appears to pose challenges for practice in the UK even today. This was recently highlighted in 2014 when the Department of Health requested the publication of a consensus statement from major UK mental health professional bodies outlining concern about and opposition to 'conversion' or 'reparative' therapy being offered to LGB people by practitioners (often working within a religious frame of reference) claiming to be able to 'cure' same-sex attraction (UK Council for Psychotherapy, 2014)...

Despite advances in recovery focused mental health care, people with severe mental illness (SMI) experience multiple physical comorbidity compounded by unhealthy lifestyle behaviours including low levels of physical activity (Vancampfort et al. 2017; Walker et al. 2015). Responding to this, international policy is moving to include physical activity as part of fundamental care for people with severe mental illness (Pratt et al. 2016; Richardson et al. 2005). Incorporation of physical activity into mental health service provision should adopt an approach that is in keeping with best practice, recovery orientated guidelines of mental health service provision, with particular consideration shown to incorporating service users as partners in care plan development and delivery (Department of Health, 2001; Department of Health and Children, 2006)...

BACKGROUND: General practice is typically the first point of access to healthcare. However, emerging models of providing mental health services in primary care are poorly understood. AIMS: To explore what value a Primary Care Liaison Nurse (PCLN) service, established in 2011, can bring to people with mental health problems in primary care. PARTICIPANTS: Ten interviews with seven general practitioners and three senior practitioners working in primary care mental health services...

AIM: The literature reporting experiences of relatives of people with mental illness regarding their interactions with mental health services identifies many commonalities. However, the actual experience of carers engaging the services and understanding health care systems remains a gap in the literature. The aim of this study was to explore the experiences of carers (of people with a severe mental illness) in a major area mental health service in Victoria Australia as they fulfil their caring role whilst negotiating support for their relative...

INTRODUCTION: The Care Programme Approach was introduced in England to ensure services met the needs of people with mental health problems and a concurrent learning disability (dual diagnosis). The CPA implementation was patchy and services failed to work in partnership. AIM: This study aimed to explore the factors shaping the recent implementation of the CPA for service users with a dual diagnosis. METHOD: A single case study approach was undertaken...

Research and evidence from service users has consistently reported that service users are not involved in care planning, despite mental health policy that advocates a collaborative process and evidence that involvement facilitates recovery (Bee et al, 2015; Simpson et al, 2016). Service users want the care plan to go beyond being a record of clinical decisions and include aspects of their lives in which they need support, such as housing, employment and benefits. Grundy et al (2016) looked at what 'user-involved' care planning might look like...

Being a mental health nurse can be a fraught experience, leading the reflective practitioner to question where they sit in relation to fellow nurses, fellow mental health professionals, patients and service users. We may question our position in relation to the broad spectrum of fellow mental health nurse colleagues, who work in a diversity of settings (compare the mental health nurse in a high secure setting with one working in a dementia memory clinic, for example). Whilst some aspects of mental health nursing are tasks, such as completing assessments and administering medication, mental health nurses themselves define the work in terms of forming and maintaining therapeutic relationships, 'therapeutic use of self' (Hurley et al, 2009) and 'being with' people (Hercelinskyj, 2014)...

INTRODUCTIO: Korea is experiencing rapid population aging, spurring an increased need for mental health services for the elderly. Approximately one-third of Korean older adults experience depressive symptoms, and Korea has the highest elder suicide rate among 34 developed nations. Mental health literacy is an important component of promoting mental health, yet studies on the concept have been conducted in few countries. AIM: This study examines the level of mental health literacy among Korean older adults, and identifies factors associated with their mental health literacy...

INTRODUCTION: Recovery-oriented mental health policies recognise consumer and carer participation in service decision-making as essential, but little is known about the views of these individuals in the earliest stages of service development. AIM: This study sought consumer and carer perspectives addressing the establishment of a mental health research, treatment, and teaching facility in their region. METHODS: Two 2 hr focus groups were conducted, with separate groups held for mental health consumers (n = 9) and carers (n = 9) respectively...

Michael Coffey, Ben Hannigan, Alan Simpson
Care planning and co-ordination are central to the delivery of comprehensive mental health care especially where individuals have complex health and social care needs. Although the terms are often used together they clearly imply different sets of processes, practices and ultimately experiences for individuals using and working in services. Care planning involves professionals (nurses, doctors, social workers and others) and the person needing care collaborating on goals, making shared written records and agreeing when to review progress...

INTRODUCTION: A lack of understanding surrounding the role of mental health nursing is associated with recruitment and retention challenges. Additional complexities include stigma related to the role, an ageing workforce and dearth of graduates keen to pursue this career. AIM OF STUDY: This qualitative study focused on opinions and experiences of existing mental health nurses to determine what could be done to entice nurses to choose mental health. METHOD: A cross-sectional design involving a brief interview was conducted with 192 Western Australian nurses from one public mental health service...

INTRODUCTION: Despite indications that therapeutic interaction is beneficial for patients and for nurses' job satisfaction in acute psychiatric care, research shows a small amount of nurses' time is spent on such activity. AIMS: This study investigated the actual and potential therapeutic role of the mental health nurse in psychiatric intensive care, where admission is due to violence or aggression. METHODS: In a mixed-methods concurrent triangulation design, clinician and patient activity was observed using a structured measurement tool, and qualitative interviews were conducted with four practitioners and six patients...
