Early Serious Mental Illness Treatment Locator

One of the most important advances in treating serious mental illness in recent years is improving care for people experiencing a first onset of serious mental illness such as psychosis, schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder and other conditions. It is known that early phases of mental illness can be identified, and then team-based coordinated specialty care treatment reduces the likelihood of long term disability. SAMHSA’s (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) new Early Serious Mental Illness Treatment Locator will help connect people experiencing a first onset of serious mental illness to effective care. These evidence-based programs provide medication, therapy, family and peer support, assistance with education and employment and other services.

Conclusion: This study illustrates the potential for applying machine learning to derive a data-driven understanding of the extent to which stigma is prevalent in society. It establishes a framework for the development of an index to track stigma over time and to assist healthcare decision-makers with improving the health of populations and the experience of care for patients. Mental illness constitutes 13 percent of the global burden of disease and is projected to be 15 percent by 2020.1 It affects a significant portion of the United States population. Nearly half of all Americans are estimated to meet the criteria for a ...

Mental health has been a peripheral issue in emerging markets for a long time, despite the severe impact not only on those directly affected but also on families and carers, as well as on social cohesion and economic development.Fortunately, mental health is starting to get more attention but there is still a widespread tendency to stigmatize and discriminate against people suffering with a mental illness. They are often considered as dangerous and aggressive which in turn increases the social distance.Is there an opportunity for pharma to do more?

A population-based retrospective cohort of women whose first child was born in Manitoba, Canada between 2002 and 2012 and lived in the province at least two years before the birth of their first child (n=53,565) was created using linkable administrative data.

Conclusion: The majority of observati were found not accountable, with significant differences found between the two groups regarding demographic characteristics, type of diagnosis and offences committed. The identified differences can be used to assist in establishing criteria for the appropriate referral of alleged offenders by courts. Unnecessary referrals have a serious financial impact on the Department of Health. Furthermore, the high incidence of substance abuse among persons referred to the FSPC highlights the need for more substance rehabilitation centres in the Free State Province.
