OBJECTIVE: The study examined psychosis literacy among Latinos with first-episode psychosis (FEP) and their caregivers. The authors tested a model that knowledge of psychosis and attribution of illness to psychosis predicted professional help seeking in a cross-sectional design. METHODS: The sample (N=148) consisted of 79 Latino consumers who met criteria for a clinical diagnosis of a psychotic disorder and 69 family caregivers. Participants watched a four-minute narrative about a woman with psychosis and were asked to identify the symptoms of serious mental illness (knowledge of psychosis), describe the character's problem and whether she had a serious mental illness (illness attribution), and offer suggestions about what the parents should do (help seeking)...

OBJECTIVE: Care management entity models have a positive impact on functioning and symptom control among youths with serious emotional and behavioral disorders. However, little is known about whether treatment benefits are sustained after discharge. The study objective was to examine the association between enrollment in a care management entity and mental health outcomes during the year after discharge. METHODS: Data from care management entity administrative claims were linked with Medicaid claims for youths enrolled in a care management entity anytime from December 2009 through December 2013...

OBJECTIVE: Despite possible cure rates of >90% with new treatment, people with serious mental illness are rarely screened for hepatitis C virus (HCV). A colocated approach may help patients navigate the care continuum. METHODS: This study used a mixed-methods approach to increase understanding of the HCV care continuum for people with mental illness (N=170). Quantitative data included laboratory testing, risk assessments, and chart reviews. Qualitative interviews (N=9) were conducted to gain a broader understanding...

OBJECTIVE: Recovery colleges are widespread, with little empirical research on how they work and the outcomes they produce. This study aimed to coproduce a change model characterizing mechanisms of action (how they work) and outcomes (their impact) for mental health service users who attend recovery colleges. METHODS: A systematized review identified all publications about recovery colleges. Inductive collaborative data analysis of 10 key publications by academic researchers and coresearchers with lived experience informed a theoretical framework for mechanisms of action and student outcomes, which was refined through deductive analysis of 34 further publications...

The collaborative care model can deliver high-quality mental health care. In rural regions, clinical supervision is conducted remotely rather than in person. The authors implemented a remote teleconsultation model in rural Nepal, where the consulting psychiatrist is over 30 hours away. This column describes strategies for several challenges: poor mental health competencies and high turnover among primary care providers; need for urgent consultations; psychiatrist discomfort with lack of direct patient contact; unreliable electricity, technological tools, documentation, and delivery of treatment recommendations; on-site clinicians' low motivation to accept psychiatrist recommendations; and mismatch between the psychiatrist's recommendations and the site's capacity to implement them...

Many people are interested in using marijuana for therapeutic purposes as legalization expands across the country. The impact of marijuana depends upon the consumed potency and dose of its major psychoactive components, tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol, which have very different psychiatric effects. This Open Forum discusses what is known about the impact of these marijuana constituents on people with serious mental illnesses, who may experience many adverse effects and more easily develop addiction with marijuana use...

Sequential intercept mapping, a community-based application of the sequential intercept model, was recently adapted in Ohio to address the complex challenge of the opioid crisis. Sequential intercept mapping for opioids provides a framework for criminal justice, mental health and addictions treatment providers, family members and opioid-involved individuals, and other stakeholders to develop community-based responses that emphasize prevention, regulation, and treatment for opioid dependency, with a goal of reducing unintended deaths and overdoses...

OBJECTIVE: This study examined racial and ethnic differences in treatment outcomes among participants in a randomized controlled trial of an intervention for first-episode psychosis called NAVIGATE. METHODS: Secondary data analyses were conducted for participants randomly assigned to usual community care (N=181) and NAVIGATE (N=223). Generalized estimating equations assessed whether race and ethnicity were associated with psychiatric symptoms and service use (medication management, family psychoeducation, and individual therapy) over a 24-month treatment period, accounting for baseline symptoms, duration of untreated psychosis, and insurance status...

OBJECTIVE: The study compared Medicaid cost-effectiveness for children with serious emotional disturbance receiving services from two programs operated by the New York State Office of Mental Health: the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Waiver program and targeted case management (TCM). METHODS: Children ages four to 18 who received services from the HCBS Waiver program (N=1,602) or TCM (N=2,740) during 2009-2012 were selected. A quasi-experimental study design with propensity score-matched comparison groups was used to examine Medicaid costs (per member per month [PMPM] total cost) before admission to and after discharge from the HCBS Waiver and TCM programs...

OBJECTIVE: The study compared clinical outcomes of depression treatment in primary care with a colocation model versus a collaborative care model (CoCM). METHODS: Patients (N=240) with Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9) scores of ≥10 treated for clinically significant depression symptoms in primary care sites implementing the CoCM or a colocation model were compared. PHQ-9 scores were collected at baseline and 12 weeks. RESULTS: From baseline to follow-up, reductions in PHQ-9 scores were 33% for the CoCM sites and 14% for the colocation sites, with an unadjusted mean difference in scores of 2...

Show rates for psychiatric outpatient appointments are low among new patients, which affects all patients as well as providers and programs. This column describes two initiatives implemented to address this issue in a community psychiatry program: inpatient referrals and self-referrals. Inpatient referrals were scheduled for an orientation group within five days postdischarge, with initial evaluations within two working days. Biweekly walk-in screening clinics were established for community self-referrals, during which patients were screened and scheduled for an initial evaluation within three working days...

OBJECTIVE: Multiple studies have detailed the relationship between Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act and various health and financial outcomes. However, fewer studies have examined Medicaid expansion's effects on individuals with psychiatric diagnoses. This study sought to determine the relationship between Medicaid expansion and various health and financial outcomes among low-income adults with depression. METHODS: This quasi-experimental study used a random-digit-dial survey of U...

Accountable care organizations (ACOs) can potentially improve value in behavioral health care. However, little is known about the likelihood of ACO participation among hospitals with behavioral health services. The authors explore statistical predictors of ACO participation among hospitals, particularly among those offering behavioral health services. After adjusting for other hospital characteristics, the analysis found that behavioral health specialty hospitals were less likely to participate in an ACO and general medical-surgical hospitals with behavioral health services were more likely to participate, compared with general medical-surgical hospitals without behavioral health services...

Up to 20% of women who screen positive for depression in the perinatal period in primary care and obstetric settings may have bipolar disorder, but little is known about best practices for this population. This column describes clinical programs that support identification and management of depression and bipolar disorder among women in non-mental health settings. The programs use diverse management strategies, including referral to specialty mental health, collaborative care, and consultation and care coordination...

Recent changes in U.S. immigration policies and enforcement have precipitated a 300% rise in arrests and planned deportations. Although some family members face deportation, other family members may have state-sanctioned status. Such mixed status puts hundreds of thousands of families at risk of forced separation and associated mental health problems. Building on cross-cultural work with refugee families and other groups and on work with families separated by parental incarceration, the authors provide recommendations to guide clinicians working with families who are separated or who fear separation...

Cognitive impairments and negative symptoms in schizophrenia are associated with poorer outcomes and are typically resistant to pharmacological interventions. However, these features can vary dramatically in their level of expression, and they can improve as a function of external context (by providing performance-contingent incentives and a more stimulating environment) and internal context (by challenging defeatist performance beliefs and by reducing stress and improving physical health). This Open Forum briefly reviews some of this evidence for the situational variability of cognitive impairments and negative symptoms in schizophrenia and highlights psychosocial treatments that capitalize on this variability...
