The successful concurrent use of two long-acting depot antipsychotics in a patient with treatment-resistant schizophrenia and history of serious violence: a case report.
CONCLUSION: Although concurrent use of two depot antipsychotics requires further exploration, there is potential benefit for patient groups presenting with treatment-resistant schizophrenia and poor compliance. Due to risk of serious adverse effects which are difficult to reverse with long-acting formulations, we recommend this option be reserved for this complex patient population and exclusively in care settings allowing close physical health monitoring.

Repeated self-harm in young people: a review.
CONCLUSIONS: The review concludes that there is an urgent need for the delivery of respectful and evidence-based practice to all young people who present with self-harm. In addition, improved monitoring of self-harm presentations to hospitals across Australia is required in order that robust data are collected and the impact of practice change can be reliably assessed.

Suicidal thinking and behaviour as of 600 BCE (Aesop's fables).
CONCLUSION: Evidence indicates that around 600 BCE, suicide was practised as a means of coping with self-doubt and criticism, unpleasant predicaments and inescapable physical pain.

Suicidal ideation and non-fatal deliberate self-harm presentations in the Kimberley from an enhanced police-mental health service notification database.
CONCLUSIONS: Prevalence of suicidal phenomena is very high and is likely to be much higher than estimated by this hospital based study. Such high prevalence suggests that a population level intervention is required in addition to interventions involving clinical services.

The physical health of Indigenous and non-Indigenous patients participating in residential rehabilitation programs: a comparison study.
CONCLUSIONS: Patients with SMI in residential rehabilitation programs have poor physical health. Our findings underscore the need for clinicians to develop and evaluate interventions aimed at improving the metabolic profile of those with SMI in residential rehabilitation programs. Historical factors and cultural traditions need to be considered when designing lifestyle interventions for Indigenous patients.

Things I wish I'd known: desiderata for early career psychiatrists.
CONCLUSIONS: The mentorship and advice from senior colleagues can be highly influential. In order to sustain a career that has reward, meaning and longevity, psychiatrists would do well to pay attention to aspects of self-care, stay connected to their loved ones, seek an optimal work-life balance and take an interest in their long term career plans.

CONCLUSIONS: In this adolescent with co-morbid ADHD and OCD, we observed that the adjunctive use of methylphenidate resulted in enhanced treatment response to both psychological and pharmacological interventions for OCD. This case highlights the need to identify and treat co-morbid ADHD in OCD cases where progress has stalled. PMID: 27683657 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Australasian Psychiatry)

The infant observation task as a tool in psychiatric practice.
CONCLUSION: Infant observation provides a privileged entry into an infant's internal world to observe its earliest mental life. Weekly consecutive observations of the mother-baby dyad, combined with the process of supervision, enable identification of emergent and changing patterns in the relationship. The discipline of observation encourages attunement to the nuances of relationships, which provides a potent tool for application in other clinical settings.

Primary evidence of seton therapy at Tarban Creek, New South Wales, 1839.
CONCLUSIONS: The earliest known existing records of New South Wales asylum data are from Tarban Creek Asylum. After almost two centuries the preserved records allow insight into treatment used in early colonial Australia, including the scarcely remembered seton therapy. This finding highlights the importance of preserving historical records. It also demonstrates the necessity and/or evolving wish within the colony to care for patients with perceived mental health difficulties based on a shared medical culture inherited from techniques used in Britain.

CONCLUSIONS: Transference focused psychotherapy is readily applicable in a range of training, research and public and private service provision contexts in Australia. A numbers of aspects of current Australian psychiatric training and practice, such as the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists advanced training certificate, and the Australian medicare schedule, make it especially relevant for this purpose.

CONCLUSIONS: Residential rehabilitation in mental health has largely operated under the same model of care for 25 years following the closure of the asylums.

Violence and self-harm in severe mental illness: inpatient study of associations with ethnicity, cannabis and alcohol.
We examined the extent to which ethnicity, cannabis and alcohol use could predict prevalence of violence and self-harm in an inpatient psychiatric sample. METHOD: We collected demographic and clinical data in a series of 141 adult psychiatric inpatients in Hamilton, New Zealand. The Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) and Cannabis Use Disorders Identification Test, Revised (CUDIT-R) were used to measure substance use. Clinical assessment and file review were used to verify histories of self-harm and violence. RESULTS: It was found that 66% had a history of violence, 54% of self-harm, and 40% of both...

Establishment and implementation of a psychiatry enrichment programme for medical students.
CONCLUSION: Establishing an enrichment programme can provide academic departments of psychiatry with the opportunity to demonstrate excellence and innovation in teaching and positively promote psychiatry to students and other non-medical academics involved in medical education. For students interested in psychiatry, enrichment programmes have the potential to extend interest and knowledge beyond the curriculum and encourage serious consideration of psychiatry as a career.
