2.2 Evidence-Based Screening and Assessment in Primary Care: A Decade of Experience

Most practicing pediatricians report that they received little training in the diagnosis and treatment of common mental disorders during residency, apart from whatever they obtained during a 1-month rotation in developmental behavioral pediatrics or in their continuity clinics. Not surprisingly, in their subsequent practice settings, they are unprepared to diagnosis and manage common conditions, such as depression, anxiety, disruptive behavioral disorders, and even ADHD. To address this problem, since 2006, the REACH Institute (www.TheREACHInstitute.org) has conducted more than 80 six-month-long training sessions for nearly 3000 practicing pediatricians and other primary care providers.

It makes perfect sense to me that employers would be very enthusiastic aboutbehavioral health as a component of their corporate wellness programs. The term is defined in the following way (see:Defining Behavioral Health):Behavioral health is the scientific study of the emotions, behaviors and biology relating to a person ’s mental well-being, their ability to function in every day life and their concept of self.“Behavioral health” is the preferred term to “mental health.” A person struggling with his or her behavioral health may face stress, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, grief, a...

CONCLUSION: Youth with headache exert a considerable economic burden on families, healthcare systems, and society. Due to the limitations in methods used to classify youth with headache in MEPS, our findings may underestimate the true prevalence and cost of pediatric headache in the United States. Further research with larger sample sizes is needed to understand the impact of psychiatric comorbidities on healthcare expenditures in this population.

Conclusion: This study demonstrates that SRE of MDP to alleviate symptoms of a range of mental or physiological diagnoses is higher compared to conventionally offered treatment options, and lower than regular (‘full’) psychedelic doses. Future RCTs in patient populations should objectively assess the effectivity claims of psychedelics, and whether these are dose related, disorder specific, and superior to conventional treatments.

Introduction: After a traumatic event, children and adolescents may present several clinical consequences, the most common being Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Most children and adolescents with PTSD have comorbid disorders, such Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, depression, attachment and anxiety disorders, sleep disturbances and behavior problems. However, epidemiological studies on the development of PTSD and other psychiatric disorders in children and adolescents as a consequence of a terrorist attack and mass murder are lacking. Long-term follow-up of exposed children and adolescents will help identify...

__________ Industry review boards are needed to protect VR user privacy (World Economic Forum blog): “It seemed like a game when Riley first started the virtual reality (VR) maze … A month after playing the game, Riley was turned down for a new life-insurance policy. Given his excellent health, he couldn’t understand why. Several appeals later, the insurance company disclosed that Riley’s tracking data from the VR maze game revealed behavioral movement patterns often seen among people in the very early stages of dementia … This is a hypothetical situation, but the science of using movements ...

t S Abstract Prenatal brain development is a complex and sensitive process, highly susceptible to environmental influences such as pollutants, stress, malnutrition, drugs, tobacco exposure, or ionizing radiation (IR). Disturbances in development may cause life-long disabilities and diseases, such as ADHD, childhood cancers, cognitive problems, depression, anxiety and more severe developmental disabilities. Due to increasing medical imaging, radiation therapy, natural terrestrial radiation, radioactive pollution and long-distance flights, humans are increasingly exposed to IR. However, data on impact of IR on very ...
