Performance feedback and supervision are essential to the adoption of evidence-based interventions with high treatment integrity in child and youth care organizations. Little is known about the use of treatment integrity measurements in these organizations. For this study, 12 interventions for children and young people in the Netherlands with externalizing behavioral problems were selected. For each intervention, an expert, two supervisors, and two therapists were approached for an interview. In total, 54 semi-structured interviews were conducted...

The economic impact of disasters is well known; however, the link between financial loss and behavioral health problems is unknown. Participants included 198 adults of ages 21 to 82, living within 10 miles of the Gulf Coast during the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and were involved in the fishing, harvesting, seafood processing, or service/tourism industries. The functional impact of financial resource loss at 2.5 years post spill was measured using the 26-item Financial Life Events Checklist (FLEC). Individuals responded to financial distress by reducing social events and utility bills and changing food-shopping habits...

Conflicts with methadone program counseling staff and violations of program rules can contribute to patients leaving treatment prematurely. This qualitative study was conducted as part of a larger trial of patient-centered methadone treatment (PCM). In-depth, semi-structured interviews at baseline and 12-month follow-up were conducted with five counselors and three clinical supervisors from the programs participating in the PCM parent study. Data were analyzed using Atlas.ti. Counselors reported that, in some cases, PCM allowed them to focus on building a therapeutic alliance with patients because they were not addressing program rule issues...

Caregivers of youth with coexisting cognitive and mental health problems face difficult treatment decisions for their child and have unique challenges engaging in shared decision-making. Many stakeholders can influence care management decisions, and the child's cognitive impairment often prohibits their inclusion in the shared decision-making process. In-depth interviews and focus groups with 37 caregivers elicited their experiences with care management related to their child's educational, mental health, and other care needs...

Increasingly, jurisdictions are requiring the adoption of certified evidence-based programs (EBPs) for behavioral health and human services for children, youth, and their families. Often, such adoption of proven, prepackaged programs is done without regard to existing, yet effective, locally developed program models. This study presents a replicable six-step process that identifies key researched elements from within existing programs and creates program-specific fidelity scoring and tracking tools for routine use during clinical supervision to assure that these elements are implemented well...

Analyses of healthcare expenditures and adequacy are needed to identify cost-effective policies and practices that improve mental healthcare quality. Data are from 2010 to 2012 electronic health records from three hospital psychiatry departments in Madrid (n = 29,944 person-years) and three in Boston (n = 14,109 person-years). Two-part multivariate generalized linear regression and logistic regression models were estimated to identify site differences in mental healthcare expenditures and quality of care...

While mental health (MH) services are expected to support client recovery, very little is known about services provided by MH teams in relation to this goal. This study explored relationships between a comprehensive collection of team effectiveness variables and the perspectives of MH professionals regarding the recovery orientation of their teams. A model developed by path analysis revealed eight team-related variables that were significantly and positively associated with recovery-oriented teams: primary care versus specialized MH services; greater proportions of clients with severe mental disorders or with suicide ideation on caseloads; knowledge sharing and knowledge production among team members; team climate; work role performance; and trust in coworkers...

This study examines variations in content of care for anxiety-related emergency department (ED) visits in the USA across various sociodemographic strata. The 2009-2012 National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey was used to identify all visits to general hospital EDs in which an anxiety diagnosis was recorded (n = 1930). Content and equitability of care was assessed utilizing logistic regression models. There were an estimated 1,856,000 ED visits with anxiety-related discharge diagnoses in the USA annually...

This paper outlines the critical role of personal agency in influencing health and development outcomes and presents a framework for implementing non-therapeutic cognitive-behavioral interventions that foster agency, especially for women, in resource-poor settings. The United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has placed "empowerment" at the center of global targets, particularly to improve individuals' health and development. Despite extensive research on individual and community empowerment, there is limited focus on the role of psychological and behavioral approaches directly fostering individual and collective agency in health programs...

Drug and alcohol use among youth has serious consequences for the physical and mental health of youth and strains their relationships with family and friends. While the task of dealing with substance-related issues often falls on families, particularly parents, very little research has explored the importance of family as a motivator for seeking treatment. This paper reports on a qualitative study of youth seeking substance abuse treatment at a large urban psychiatric hospital. Following primarily self-determination theory, the study examines youths' descriptions of how their parents motivated them to (1) change their substance use behaviors and (2) seek treatment...

Multiple psychosocial factors influence help-seeking behavior among immigrants, but studies have focused on separate issues in single cultural groups. This study tested a model of help-seeking behavior among three ethnically different immigrant groups. Participants were 1356 Somali, Russian, and Kurdish immigrants (18-64 years). They reported past traumatic events, social network, acculturation indices, trust in services, and mental health as well as usage of mental and somatic health services. Structural equation modeling (SEM) with multigroup procedure was applied...

This study focused on (1) whether disparities in timely receipt of substance use services can be explained in part by the characteristics of the community in which the clients reside and (2) whether the effect of community characteristics on timely receipt of services was similar across racial/ethnic groups. The sample was composed of adults receiving publicly funded outpatient treatment in Washington State. Treatment data were linked to data from the US census. The outcome studied was "Initiation and Engagement" in treatment (IET), a measure noting timely receipt of services at the beginning of treatment...

Programs that serve transition-age youth with serious mental health conditions typically reside in either the child or the adult system. Good service provision calls for interactions among these programs. The objective of this research was to discover programmatic characteristics that facilitate or impede collaboration with programs serving dissimilar age groups, among programs that serve transition-age youth. To examine this "cross-age collaboration," this research used social network analysis methods to generate homophily and heterophily scores in three communities that had received federal grants to improve services for this population...

Peer-delivered services for individuals with psychiatric conditions are becoming an established part of the mental health workforce. Given the growing focus on evidence-based supported employment, peer specialists are often assisting individuals who are choosing, getting, or keeping employment. As part of a larger randomized clinical trial examining the effectiveness of an innovative intervention called vocational peer support, 13 semi-structured qualitative interviews were conducted to examine how recipients perceived peer support, and whether or how it was useful for pursuing vocational goals...

The purpose of this mixed-methods study was to gain insight about Native Hawaiian (NH) women's experiences with, and viewpoints of, depression and help-seeking behaviors (N = 30: 10 from the university and 20 from the community). More women reported depression in the interviews than through their Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D) responses. Quantitative data revealed 57% of the women had ever received mental health help (80% of university vs. 45% of community sample). There was a range of satisfaction reported for various types of mental health care, with satisfaction being the highest for spiritual/religious advisor/folk healer...

Children's mental health (CMH) problems often recur. Following specialized mental health treatment, youth may require monitoring and follow-up. For these youth, primary health care is highly relevant, as family physicians (FPs) are the only professionals who follow patients across the lifespan. The current study gained multiple perspectives about (1) the role of FPs in caring for youth with ongoing/recurring CMH problems and (2) incorporating routine mental health monitoring into primary health care. A total of 33 interviews were conducted, including 10 youth (aged 12-15) receiving CMH care, 10 parents, 10 CMH providers, and 3 FPs...
