Self ‐compassion and related factors in severe mental illness: A scoping review

AbstractPurposeTo clarify what is known and identify research gaps on the role of self-compassion (SC) and potential interventions for individuals with severe mental illness (SMI).Design and MethodsWe analyzed 24 studies of SC in schizophrenia spectrum disorder, bipolar disorder (BD), and major depressive disorder (MDD).FindingsMindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) was the most common intervention. Predicting depression by SC was common in MDD and BD; however, relationships between demographics/clinical variables and SC in BD and schizophrenia spectrum disorder remain unclear.Practice ImplicationsMBCT increases SC in SMI. Data regarding predictors of SC are limited, especially in schizophrenia.

Conclusion: Psychiatric patients in general have poorer disease control after the COVID-19 outbreak. Patients in the community appeared to be more affected than patients residing in hostels. More efforts should be directed to screening patients with pre-existing mental health disorders to enable timely interventions.

CONCLUSIONS: Existing patient-level economic models of interventions for severe mental illness have considerable limitations. New modelling efforts must be supplemented by the generation of good-quality, contemporary evidence suitable for model building. Combined effort across the research community is required to build and validate economic extrapolation models suitable for accurately assessing the long-term value of new interventions from short-term clinical trial data.PMID:35049466 | DOI:10.1192/bjp.2021.121

CONCLUSIONS: Utility decrements for TD in this study were slightly larger than previously reported values, potentially due to incorporation of QOL and social consequences in TD health state descriptions. An important limitation of this analysis is that participants' willingness to trade future years of healthy life may not indicate actual willingness to accept the life decrement. These findings can be leveraged to improve cost-effectiveness analyses used to assess the value of treatments for TD.PMID:35045768 | DOI:10.1080/03007995.2021.2022918

CONCLUSIONS: AAO and PAO are associated with indicators of bipolar disorder severity. Individuals with an earlier onset show an increased polygenic liability for a broad spectrum of psychiatric traits. Systematic differences in AAO across cohorts, continents and phenotype definitions introduce significant heterogeneity, affecting analyses.PMID:35048876 | DOI:10.1192/bjp.2021.102

CONCLUSIONS: Pre-existing SMI was associated with higher risks of mortality and further vascular events. Urgent action is needed to better understand and address the reasons for these disparities.PMID:35049490 | DOI:10.1192/bjp.2021.120

Brain Behav Immun. 2022 Jan 15:S0889-1591(22)00009-5. doi: 10.1016/j.bbi.2022.01.006. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTNitric oxide (NO) signalling has been implicated in the pathogenesis of several mental illnesses; however, its specific contribution remains unclear. We investigated whether peripheral NO concentration is associated with specific diagnoses, and whether there is a correlation with genetic variation in NO synthase (NOS) genes. We included 185 participants in the study; 52 healthy controls, 43 major depressive disorder (MDD) patients, 41 bipolar disorder (BPD) patients, and 49 schizophrenia (SCZ) patients. Clini...

CONCLUSIONS: PSG revealed that moderate to severe OSA was common in psychiatric patients with or without snoring. Subjective symptoms and psychotropics did not predict OSA. Therefore, PSG is needed to reveal sleep conditions in patients with psychiatric disorders.PMID:35029795 | DOI:10.1007/s11325-022-02566-6

DISCUSSION: Our findings indicate the importance of clinicians closely monitoring the mental health condition of children, adolescents, and adults with T1DM. Additional studies should be conducted to elucidate the definite pathomechanisms of comorbidities between T1DM and major psychiatric disorders.PMID:35026379 | DOI:10.1016/j.diabet.2022.101319
