Data on pain and its treatment were collected from 9357 participants using questionnaires and telephone-based interviews, from 31 regions of China. Gathered data were then coded into electronic data acquisition system and descriptive and inferential statistical analysis was performed. Out of 9298 participants, the ratio of chronic pain was 31.54% with the proportion of male having chronic pain (33.86%) was higher than that of female (29.53%). The average age of participants with pain (45.02 ± 15.07 years) was higher than f...

Authors: Goodkind JR, Bybee D, Hess JM, Amer S, Ndayisenga M, Greene RN, Choe R, Isakson B, Baca B, Pannah M Abstract Understanding processes that support the well-being of the unprecedented numbers of forcibly displaced people throughout the world is essential. Growing evidence documents post-migration stressors related to marginalization as key social determinants of refugee mental health. The goal of this RCT was to rigorously test a social justice approach to reducing high rates of distress among refugees in the United States. The 6-month multilevel, strengths-based Refugee Well-being Project (RWP) intervention...

Maier, Valeria Pagliaro, Kira Deutsch, Justin Hudak, Florian G. Metzger, Andreas J. Fallgatter, Ann-Christine EhlisAbstractExposure therapy is a well-studied and highly efficacious treatment for phobic disorders. Although the neurobiological model of fear is well underpinned by various studies, the mechanisms of exposure therapy are still under discussion. Partly, this is due to the fact that most neurophysiological methods like fMRI are not able to be used in the natural th...

MeierAbstractApproximately 30% of adolescents with concussion develop persistent post-concussion symptoms (PPCS) that include emotional symptoms. Elevated amygdalae reactivity to emotional faces has been reported in a variety of psychopathologies characterized by emotional symptoms overlapping with those in PPCS. We tested the hypothesis that amygdalae reactivity to emotional faces in adolescents with PPCS+ is elevated compared...

ConclusionsResults provide no clear evidence for a synergistic effect for EX+AR and highlights that AR instruction aids adaptive reappraisal of stress. Studies with longitudinal designs are needed. These observations add to the body of literature exploring mechanisms for improving stress reactivity and the role exercise may play.

ConclusionsThis study shows that children with emotional and behavioral disorders are more likely to have increased office visits and missed days of school, even after adjusting for sociodemographic factors and co-morbid medical conditions. Recognition of early associations of emotional and behavioral disorders can create an opportunity for early identification of children with emotional and behavioral disorders in the pediatric practice.

In this study, we designed a randomized controlled trial (RCT) to test the feasibility and efficacy of the PPI in improving mental health status of PWUD attending methadone maintenance treatment (MMT). A total of 140 MMT users were randomly allocated into the intervention group (n = 70) which carried on the intervention (documenting “Three Good Things” every day for 2 weeks) and the control group (n = 70) which received booklets about mental health. Baseline, 2-week, 1-month, and 3-month follow-up interviews were conducted. Generalized estimating equations for repeated measureme...

The majority (55%) of the world’s population lives in urban environments. Of relevance to global mental health, the rapid growth in urban populations around the world and the attendant risks coincide with the presence of the largest population of adolescents the global community has seen to date. Recent reviews on the effects of the urban environment on mental health report a greater risk of depression, anxiety, and some psychotic disorders among urban dwellers. Increased risk for mental disorders is associated with concentrated poverty, low social capital, social segregation, and other social and environmental adver...
