Evidence for Differential Predictive Performance of the Prime Screen Between Black and White Help-Seeking Youths.
This study sought to examine whether a commonly used self-report screening tool for psychosis risk performed equally among black and white youths in its ability to predict clinical high-risk status. METHODS: Black (N=58) and white (N=50) help-seeking individuals ages 12-25 (61% female) were assessed with the Prime Screen and the Structured Interview for Psychosis-Risk Syndromes (SIPS). A logistic regression model estimated race differences in the strength of the relation between Prime Screen scores and SIPS-defined risk status. RESULTS: Higher Prime Screen scores significantly predicted clinical high-risk status among white (p

Designing an Academic-Community Telepsychiatry Partnership to Provide Inpatient and Outpatient Services in a Critical Access Hospital.
Authors: Kimmel RJ, Iles-Shih MD, Ratzliff A, Towle C Abstract To expand access to mental health treatment in an underserved area, the University of Washington (UW) and Dayton General Hospital (DGH) entered into a partnership to provide comprehensive telepsychiatry services to individuals living in rural Columbia County. Outpatient care is provided by behavioral health consultants at two DGH-affiliated primary care clinics in consultation with a UW-based psychiatrist with expertise in addictions. Inpatient care is supported by regular consultation with UW psychiatrists as well as unscheduled "curbside" co...

Use of an Educational Video to Reduce Barriers to Military Mental Health Care.
This study evaluated the effect of a video designed to demystify mental health treatment on barriers to seeking care among military personnel. METHODS: Participants were 294 active duty U.S. Marine Corps personnel who were randomly assigned to the intervention video only, the intervention video with discussion, or an attentional control video. Participants completed questionnaires that assessed social stigma regarding mental health treatment and willingness to seek help at pretest, posttest, and 6-week follow-up; personal desire for mental health care was assessed at pretest and 6-week follow-up. RESULTS: Participa...

State Legislators' Opinions About Adverse Childhood Experiences as Risk Factors for Adult Behavioral Health Conditions.
This study sought to describe state legislators' opinions about ACEs as risk factors for adult behavioral health conditions and identify how opinions vary between legislators with different characteristics. METHODS: A multimodal survey was conducted in 2017 (response rate, 16.4%; N=475). Dependent variables were the extent to which legislators thought that four ACEs-sexual abuse, physical abuse, witnessing domestic violence, and childhood neglect-increase risk of adult behavioral health conditions. Independent variables were legislator characteristics (e.g., ideology and gender). Rao-Scott chi-square tests and multivar...

Dementia and the Death Penalty.
Authors: Appelbaum PS Abstract As death row prisoners age, a new set of issues arises regarding their competence to be executed. Can a prisoner with dementia who no longer remembers the crime be put to death? What if the dementia has progressed to the point that the prisoner no longer understands that he or she faces execution, or why? These issues were considered by the U.S. Supreme Court in its recent decision in Madison v. Alabama. Implicitly rejecting the cruelty of executing a highly impaired prisoner, the court clarified the conditions that could preclude execution and the degree of impairment that must be pr...

Psychiatric Emergency Department Visits After Regional Expansion of Community Health Centers.
CONCLUSIONS: An increase in general primary health care to an underserved population, in the form of CHCs, corresponds with a decline in psychiatric ED visits. This result coheres with a recent Medicaid expansion experiment in which increased access to general primary care reduced the prevalence of undiagnosed and untreated depression. Findings, if replicated, may hold policy implications for regional health systems. PMID: 31242829 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Psychiatric Services)

Evidence of Low Adherence to Stimulant Medication Among Children and Youths With ADHD: An Electronic Health Records Study.
CONCLUSIONS: EMR data from a large health care organization showed that 46% of pediatric patients were adherent to treatment with stimulants. Rates of medication adherence were worse among patients receiving care from a primary care provider than among those receiving care from a psychiatrist, in older patients, and in female patients and did not appear to be influenced by racial-ethnic group, economic class, stimulant type, or medication formulation (short or long acting). These findings, which show low rates of medication adherence among children and adolescents with ADHD, suggest the need for efforts to improve these ra...

Stop Calling Them Laggards: Strategies for Encouraging Nonadopters to Incorporate Evidence-Based Practices.
Authors: Stewart RE, Beidas RS, Mandell DS Abstract Diffusion theory has deeply influenced implementation science and, specifically, language and thinking around practitioners and organizations that do not adopt evidence-based practices. In this Open Forum, the authors address the use of the term "laggard" to characterize this late or nonadopting group and argue for new nomenclature and modernized attitudes and approaches toward this group.

Use of Behavioral Economics to Improve Medication Adherence in Severe Mental Illness.
Authors: Guinart D, Kane JM Abstract Medication nonadherence is associated with multiple negative outcomes. Financial reinforcement based on behavioral economic principles has been proposed as a potential strategy to enhance medication adherence in severe mental illness, and some studies show that small incentives significantly increase adherence to long-acting injectable treatment. After the intervention is stopped, however, adherence appears to decline. Because of the limited number of studies published so far, results should be interpreted with caution. When implementing this strategy, measures must be taken to ...

Effect of Outpatient Service Utilization on Hospitalizations and Emergency Visits Among Youths With Autism Spectrum Disorder.

CONCLUSIONS: Using comparison groups, the authors provided evidence suggesting that community-based mobile crisis services, such as Mobile Crisis, reduce ED use among youths with behavioral health service needs. Replication in other years and locations is needed. Nevertheless, these results are quite promising in light of current trends in ED use.
