New patients' access to psychiatric treatment services: Improving the quality indicators of mental health services
We present the results of the use of an organized system for the management of new requests for psychiatric treatment, which is based on the triage and evaluation of priorities. While taking into consideration the administrative distribution of the health services, our system intervenes in the waiting time by evaluating the requests in terms of medical and moral criteria, via gradual prioritization. Principal aim is waiting time reduction as well as the optimal response of our service to the needs of our patients. This perspective study was based on the new requests. The 1839 (100%) requests for first psychiatric evaluatio...

Stress and pathophysiological mechanisms for the development of psychosomatic disease
This article deals with the psycho-biological field of Psychosomatic research, namely, the effect of stress on the body. The human organism, in the prospect of evolution, has developed biological mechanisms for maintaining its homeostasis (ομοιόσταση), in its interchange with the stressor stimuli. This process is called allostasis. The response to mild - short-term stress induces activation of the hypothalamic - pituitary - adrenal axis, the sympathetic system and the immune system; a process that proves beneficial to the body. On the contrary, exposure to traumatic or chr...

In conclusion, our results point out the adverse effects of the financial crisis on the development of problem gambling in adolescents within the Greek society. Problem gambling may have developed in response to the ubiquitous insecurity characterizing the Greek society during this rough time period. Interventions should prioritize endowing adolescents with the necessary coping skills for dealing with daily obstacles or life adversities productively and without losing their self-control.PMID:33770751 | DOI:10.22365/jpsych.2021.014 (Source: Psychiatriki)

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation: an innovative medical therapy
Psychiatriki. 2021 Apr 19;32(1):67-74. doi: 10.22365/jpsych.2021.012. Epub 2021 Mar 26.ABSTRACTRepetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is an innovative, non-invasive and well tolerated method that could be used as a treatment option for a variety of neuropsychiatric disorders. A large number of studies, for more than 30 years, have demonstrated that is a powerful neuroscience tool for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. rTMS is based on the phenomenon of electromagnetic mutual induction, that firstly reported by Michael Faraday in 1831.

Religious delusions: Definition, diagnosis and clinical implications
In conclusion, our results point out the adverse effects of the financial crisis on the development of problem gambling in adolescents within the Greek society. Problem gambling may have developed in response to the ubiquitous insecurity characterizing the Greek society during this rough time period. Interventions should prioritize endowing adolescents with the necessary coping skills for dealing with daily obstacles or life adversities productively and without losing their self-control.PMID:33770751 | DOI:10.22365/jpsych.2021.014 (Source: Psychiatriki)
