Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders: findings from focus groups of at risk women
In recent years, much attention has been directed towards understanding and treating perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMAD). PMAD are estimated to affect 11 –21% of women in the U.S. and include depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and postpartum psychosis (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2016; Fairbrother, Young, Janssen, Antony,& Tucker, 2015; Postpartum Support International, 2014).

The moderating role of acculturation mode on the relationship between depressive symptoms and health-related quality of life among international students in Korea
We examined the moderating role of acculturation mode on the relationship between depressive symptoms and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in international students. This cross-sectional study enrolled a convenience sample of 147 international students at a university in Korea. Participants' overall HRQoL was moderate (mean  = 57.2 of 80). The main and interaction effects of depressive symptoms and selected acculturation modes explained 39.9% of the variance in HRQoL. For all acculturation modes except the integration mode, as depressive symptom scores increased, HRQoL decreased. (Source: Archives of Psychiatric Nursing)

Workplace violence against nurses working in psychiatric hospitals in Jordan
Violence in the workplace is an aggressive epidemic affecting health care workers on a global scale (International Labour Organization et al., 2002).

Health behavior, sleep quality and subjective health status of foreign students in Hungary
The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) regulates melatonin production associated with the pineal gland, which is synthesized in the dark and is responsible for the circadian rhythm of sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin is also anti-carcinogenic, antioxidant and antihypertensive, therefore it is important to synthesize it in appropriate amounts (P évet, 2002; Reiter, Tan,& Mayo, 2003). During sleep, we relieve tiredness upon awakening, and therefore, it plays vital role in the physical and psychological regeneration. (Source: Archives of Psychiatric Nursing)

Self- screening using the Edinburgh post natal depression scale for mothers and fathers to initiate early help seeking behaviours
The forthcoming birth of a new baby and the life changes that occur can present parents with a range of challenges. While recognised in mothers, postnatal depression is not well researched in fathers; especially considering that up to 25% of men report experiencing depression in the ante and postnatal periods. The aim of this study was to test a self-screening tool and referral pathway pamphlet for expectant women and their partners. We used a single blinded randomised controlled study design. The sample, comprised 70 dyads, was randomised to either care as usual or to the self-screening tool and referral pathway pamphlet ...

A picture of the older homeless female veteran: A qualitative, case study analysis
Over the past 30  years, women have entered the military in ever-increasing numbers, leading to rising numbers of female veterans. With the military services now allowing women to enter service in direct combat roles, although they have actually seen combat in the recent wars, these numbers are predicted to climb sharply (Goldstein, Dinh, Donalson, Hebenstreit,& Maguen, 2017). In addition to the increasing numbers of female veterans, there also has been a concomitant increase in female veterans who are homeless. (Source: Archives of Psychiatric Nursing)

Introducing mother-baby interaction therapy for mothers with postpartum depression and their infants
Postpartum depression (PPD) has profound adverse effects on the mother-infant relationship that persist despite resolving maternal depressive symptoms (Forman et al., 2007). Although women with PPD may experience symptom improvement, standard treatment does not necessarily improve the quality of the mother-infant interaction or address impairments in the relationship (Forman et al., 2007). The effects of PPD may derail the mother-infant relationship because mothers typically are less sensitive, responsive, and contingent in interaction with their infants than mothers without PPD (Barry, Kochanska,& Philibert, 2008; Fel...

Voices, Not Stethoscopes: A Call to Transform Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing Education
As a former hospital administrator who transitioned into the role of nurse educator, I found comfort in the rather predictable structure of nursing education as clearly bounded by the didactic classroom, nursing resource lab (NRL), and clinical settings.

Through networking, I discovered that PMH nursing was historically, though inaccurately, viewed as one of nursing ’s “softer” specialties and thus not typically...
