The Crisis in College and University Mental Health

The Crisis in College and University Mental Health

These concerns have placed new pressures on college mental health services to keep campuses safe but sometimes without appropriate strategic planning. While there may be circumstances in which sharing clinical information or mandated medical leaves might be appropriate, these pressures have increased the challenge and conflict experienced by campus clinicians to keep patient care the primary goal of the clinical interaction. Lowering the threshold for communication is likely to erode the often fragile trust between a troubled student and the campus mental health systems and/or university administrators. 14 Role of psychiatry

Experiences and satisfaction of children, young people and their parents with alternative mental health models to inpatient settings : a systematic review

Experiences and satisfaction of children, young people and their parents with alternative mental health models to inpatient settings : a systematic review

Taking into account the emotional responses from both CYP and their parents, it is clear that some mental health crises can produce unpleasant and traumatic experiences. However, if parents and CYP are taken seriously, fully sup- ported during their mental health crisis treatment journey, and if their experience of mental health crisis treatment is improved, this may contribute towards a reduction of nega- tive experiences or emotional reactions. Often, changes of the staff members can be a cause of concern as this may have a considerable effect on the therapeutic alliance. The importance of the therapeutic alliance is well documented and supported with research evidence, which shows that a good therapeutic alliance is the strong predictor of the posi- tive treatment outcomes [53]. Changes of staff members can contribute towards the need for CYP to repeat their story, and become disengaged from future care. Moreover, Future in Mind recommends that CYP should tell their story only once [43].

The Relationship between Psychological Suzhi and Mental Health among Chinese College Students

The Relationship between Psychological Suzhi and Mental Health among Chinese College Students

Chinese scholars put forward the concept of psychological suzhi for how to improve mental health status of college students. Psychological suzhi is based on the physiological condition, internalizes the obtained stimuli from external world as psychological quality which is stable, basic, and implicit, has basic, derived and devel- opment capabilities, and keeps in close contact with social adaptive behavior and creative behavior. Psycholog- ical suzhi is a mental quality system, which consists of three dimensions namely cognition quality, personality quality, and adaptability (adaptive capacity). There are crucial differences between psychological suzhi and mental health: psychological suzhi is a kind of “quality”, and mental health is a kind of “state”. Psychological suzhi is an endogenous element of mental health, which can be seen as psychological fitness (constitution) of individual fitness (constitution) [4]-[6]. Cognition quality refers to individual characteristics which express in the cognitive process. Personality quality refers to personality characteristics which express in everyday life. Cognition quality and personality quality are all content elements of psychological suzhi. Adaptability (adaptive capacity) is theoretically an individual on the basis of cognitive quality and personality quality through interac- tion within a specific situation which includes the selection, adaptation and change in the environment. It is the habitual behaviour when an individual is able to get along well with the surroundings. It belongs to the function elements of psychological suzhi [6]. The relationship between psychological suzhi and mental health was dis- cussed by many researchers since the concept of psychological suzhi has been put forward. The theoretical re- search of the relationship showed that “psychological suzhi is a trait, but mental health is a state, the state is un

Financial Distress, Anxiety, Depression, and Suicide among American College Students

Financial Distress, Anxiety, Depression, and Suicide among American College Students

By using a cross-sectional design, this study borrowed existing data from the Healthy Mind Study (HMS), 2016- 2017. The HMS is an online mental health survey of college students in the US. As an annual web-based survey, HMS monitors mental health of undergraduate and graduate students in the US. The study collects rich data on SES, mental health status, mental service utilization, and common barriers against health care use (stigma, trust, etc.) [37,38]. Since 2007, HMS has been collecting data from more than 150 US colleges/universities, with more than 175,000 participants. The HMS has three standard survey modules: 1) demographic module, 2) mental health module, and 3) mental health service module. The HMS is conducted annually. The current analysis used HMS 2016–2017 data. The HMS study protocol was approved by the University of Michigan (UM) Institutional Review Board (IRB). The study protects its participants with a Certificate of Confidentiality received from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). All participants provide informed consent. The survey was performed anonymously.

Ethnicity, Culture, And Mental Health Among College Students Of Middle Eastern Heritage

Ethnicity, Culture, And Mental Health Among College Students Of Middle Eastern Heritage

Helms, & Terrel, 1994, Snowden, 2001). As expected, we found that Middle Eastern college students had more negative attitudes toward seeking mental health services than African American and Caucasian students. Middle Eastern descent individuals suffering from psychological problems have a tendency to be ashamed to admit to others that they have a problem or see a mental health professional (Erickson & Al-Timimi, 2001). They also feel less favorable toward people suffering from mental disorders (Hamdan-Mansour & Wardam, 2009; Al-Darmaki & Sayed, 2009). Their negative attitudes about help-seeking behavior most likely cause them to underutilize psychological services, thus seeking mental health treatment less often than African Americans and Caucasians. This is a trend that has been seen in African Americans and other minority groups who have negative attitudes concerning seeking mental health services (Buser, 2009; Gray, 2010). However, in contrast to most other studies, we found that African American and Caucasian college students were similar in their attitudes on mental health services. This could be a sample characteristic unique to Wayne State University, but also a reflection of African American students being enrolled in a psychology course. Previous research indicates a lack of trust in efficacy of psychological treatment, rather than fear of stigma and shame, among the African American culture (Nickerson, Helms, & Terrel, 1994; Snowden, 2001). By exposure to psychology courses, one could assume a reduction in people’s ambiguity about whether or not such services really work. This could help improve negative attitudes about seeking psychological services.

College Coaches’ Experiences, Knowledge and Attitudes to Support Student-Athlete Mental Health

College Coaches’ Experiences, Knowledge and Attitudes to Support Student-Athlete Mental Health

Recent high-profile tragedies exemplify the dire consequences to student-athletes and their communities when mental health issues go undetected and untreated. For instance, on January 17, 2015, Madison Holleran, a first year cross-country athlete at the University of Pennsylvania, died by suicide. She was a popular, star high school runner, soccer player, and student from Allendale, New Jersey, who, after entering college developed severe anxiety and depression that resulted in her suicide during the spring semester of her first year. Madison’s family, friends, and college coaches did not understand the full extent of her suffering; her suicide was largely a surprise (Fagan, 2017). Other well-known sports figures have also openly shared their personal stories about struggles with mental health. For instance, Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, winner of 23 gold medals, came out publicly about his battle with depression and thoughts of suicide. Professional athletes including Rick Ankiel, Mardy Fish, Imani Boyette, and Royce White, have also shared their personal stories, creating a new awareness about the struggles athletes have with mental health and wellness (Gleeson & Brady, 2017).

Comparing legislation for involuntary admission and treatment of mental illness in four South Asian countries

Comparing legislation for involuntary admission and treatment of mental illness in four South Asian countries

This article compares the MHL and some relevant con- cerns regarding involuntary assessment and treatment for people suffering with mental illness in these four countries. While their colonial heritages are similar, their healthcare systems vary considerably [8–10]. Despite this variation in healthcare systems, their goals to develop mental health services and reform their legislation in order to ensure proper care for this vulnerable group are comparable. Notwithstanding geographical, cultural, his- torical and linguistic diversity, commonalties have been identified when laws and some psychiatric clinical prac- tices have been compared across nations [11–14].

Mental Health and Resource Utilization among Underrepresented Students Transitioning to College

Mental Health and Resource Utilization among Underrepresented Students Transitioning to College

Despite these limitations, this study identified important mental health trends that could help to identify predictors of risk for underrepresented students transitioning to college at predominantly white, upper-middle class universities, as well as to develop efficient and effective emotional support for these students. Future research should aim to increase generalizability by exploring these questions within various higher education settings, including community colleges, universities in suburban and urban settings, and larger universities. In addition, studies should seek to recruit larger samples with increased ethnic and gender diversity among underrepresented students. Future analysis should also compare the influence of multiple, intersecting social identities including gender, low-income, first-generation, immigrant, and ethnic minority statuses in order to isolate the key mechanisms of attrition among specific subgroups of UR. For example, although sample size was not sufficient to fully explore these issues in the current sample, one aspect of social identity, low-income status, appeared to be most consistently correlated (all r’s > ±0.30; all p’s < 0.05) with perceived stress and depressive symptoms at follow up. Moreover, issues of income and social status came up in the interviews. The quote below illustrates how perceived income-status seemed to affect even NR:

To assure that this occurs, the JCAHO accredited facility must have in place a well developed risk management program which includes an incident reporting system requiring all healthcare providers and employees to report adverse incidents to the risk manager or his or her designee within 3 business days of the incident.

Responding to mental health needs after terror attacks

Responding to mental health needs after terror attacks

Mass violence incidents, including terror attacks, are a global problem. There is much potential for learning from responses in other countries. After the terror attacks in Oslo and Utøya Island in 2011, survivors, mainly young people, dispersed across the country. The Norwegian government approved a national primary care based outreach strategy coordinated by the Norwegian Center for Violence and Traumatic Stress Studies, which used crisis teams in each affected municipality. Survivors were identified from a list of those attending a summer camp on the island. 6 All were contacted directly after the attack and municipalities were recommended to assign each a contact person who would provide initial support, ensure continuity, and set up screening assessments. A follow-up study found that most (84%) had had communication with a contact person in the first four to five months, but this was not maintained; nearly half reported no communication between initial contact and 15 months after the attack. 7 No contact was associated with lower use of mental health services, and

Second, with the exception of a few recent studies, 11,105,106 prior research has relied on single-item questions and has made limited use of validated scales to assess mental health outcomes. Third, in many cases, only concussions sustained during professional careers were considered in analyses. However, some of the “non-exposed” athletes (i.e., no professional sport concussions) in previous studies may have sustained concussions in other sport-related and non-sport-related settings. This could lead to biased effect estimates. A moderate correlation was found between the reported number of concussions sustained during one’s professional and collegiate career; 100 however, it would be more appropriate to consider a complete concussion history that includes all sport-related and non-sports related concussions sustained across the lifespan. Researchers have limited concussion history to those concussions sustained during college and professional sports because former athletes probably have better recall of these
