Loneliness, Stress, and Depressive Symptoms Among the Chinese Rural Empty Nest Elderly: A Moderated Mediation Analysis.
This study aimed to explore the relationship of loneliness, perceived stress, and depressive symptoms among the Chinese rural empty nest elderly. The role of sense of coherence (SOC) as a moderating variable was investigated in a representative sample of older adults in Henan, China, from November 2016 to February 2017. Results indicated that perceived stress mediated the relationship between loneliness and depressive symptoms, and SOC acted as a moderator on this mediating model. The mediation effect of perceived stress was significant only when SOC was lower. The results emphasized the importance of perceived stress in o...

Opinions of Hospitalized Patients with Mental Disorders and Patients in Basic Health Units in Brazil Regarding Tobacco Smoking.
This study aims to investigate the opinions of psychiatric patients and the general population on the smoking ban in health service facilities. A cross-sectional study was carried out in a mental health outpatient care unit (MHOC; n = 126), a psychiatric hospital (PH; n = 126), and a basic health unit (BHU; n = 126). The participants in the hospital were less in favor of the smoking ban compared with those attending out-of-hospital units (MHOC, 84%; PH, 69%; and BHU, 100%). Subjects with four or more psychiatric admissions (odds ratio (OR), 3.24) and smokers (OR, 3.18) were most likely to agree that patients have the right...

Authors: Eivergård K, Enmarker I, Livholts M, Aléx L, Hellzén O Abstract Currently, women comprise about ten percent of those sentenced to psychiatric forensic clinics in Sweden. Those who are sentenced to forensic care because of offending and violent behaviour have already taken a step away from the usually expected female behaviour. On the other hand, there are many women in forensic care who have not committed crimes, but who instead self-harm. Studies have identified a gender bias in diagnosing and care in psychiatric settings, but there are few studies conducted on women in forensic care. ...
