Predisposing, Enabling and Need Correlates of Mental Health Treatment Utilization Among Homeless Men.

Predisposing, Enabling and Need Correlates of Mental Health Treatment Utilization Among Homeless Men. Community Ment Health J. 2014 Mar 5; Authors: Rhoades H, Wenzel SL, Golinelli D, Tucker JS, Kennedy DP, Ewing B Abstract There is significant unmet need for mental health treatment among homeless men, but little is known about the correlates of treatment utilization in this population. Within the framework of the Behavioral Model for Vulnerable Populations, this study examines predisposing, enabling and need factors that may be associated with mental health care utilization. Participants were a representative sample of 305 heterosexually active homeless men utilizing meal programs in the Skid Row region of LA. Logistic regression examined the association between predisposing, enabling and need factors and past 30 day mental health service utilization on Skid Row. Results indicated that while need, operationalized as positive screens for posttraumatic stress disorder or depression, was associated with recent mental health care utilization, predisposing and enabling factors were also related to utilization. African-American homeless men, and those men who also reported substance abuse treatment and drop-in center use, had increased odds of reporting mental health care utilization.

The objective of this study was to determine the acceptability of TMS by psychiatrists and to analyze the factors influencing it. METHOD: A sample of psychiatrists was recruited in order to complete an online quantitative acceptability study using a four variable domain model (utility, intention of use, facility, risk) allowing an acceptability score calculation. RESULT: Four hundreds and seventy-six observations were included in the analysis. Regarding the main objective, the overall TMS acceptability score was high for 47.2% of psychiatrists, average for 40.6% and low for 12.1% of them. The main factors influenci...

This study is a prospective, exploratory, qualitative analysis. Twenty midwives from Grenoble Alpes University Hospital who took care of one of the selected patients participated in this study. Two women had schizophrenia and one bipolar disorder. Interviews realized with a semi-structured guide were fully transcribed, anonymized and thematically analyzed. Topics have been structured according to the number of occurrences to build a thematic tree. RESULTS: Midwives felt insecure and resourceless when the postpartum care was unclear, insufficiently anticipated and in case of a danger for the women or the children. They ...

CONCLUSION: A psychotic experience could be traumatic for patients and lead to complete PTSD. Although it appears as a non-consensual clinical entity, from a likely epistemological slip of the definition of "psychotrauma", the consideration of potential PTSD-PP presents an undoubted clinical relevance. Indeed, it could help practioners to precise the semiological analysis of patients recovering from an acute psychotic episode; to impact the prognosis of psychosis, thinking about impairment on the quality of life and the affective and suicidal comorbidities; and to modify the therapeutic approach in the recovery o...

ConclusionsEmotion dysregulation is associated with symptoms of depression and anxiety in PwMS. Given the malleability of this construct, this study underscores the importance of further investigating emotion dysregulation, and possibly adopting it as a surrogate endpoint in interventions targeting affective disorders in PwMS.

CONCLUSIONS: The observed symptomatic differences may be an additional factor of MDD/DB differential diagnosis. Lower than previously reported symptoms stability highlights the need to evaluate more than one depressive episode in differential diagnosis. PMID: 31522204 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: The results obtained in patients with drug-resistant depression confirm that ECT treatment produces a significant impairment of autobiographical memory persisting also three months after the procedure, suggesting that it may be the most important adverse cognitive effect of the ECT.
