Multimorbidity and vulnerability among those living with psychosis in Indigenous populations in Cape York and the Torres Strait.
CONCLUSION: Our data expose the perinatal and early environment of Indigenous children who later developed a psychotic disorder. As risk factors for schizophrenia may be cumulative and interactive, both with each other and with critical periods of neurodevelopmental vulnerability, our results suggest possible causes for the increasing prevalence of psychotic disorders between 1992 and 2015.

Incarceration among adults living with psychosis in Indigenous populations in Cape York and the Torres Strait.
CONCLUSION: Our study found that for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with a psychotic disorder in North Queensland, criminal justice responses with resultant incarceration occurs frequently. Access to appropriate mental health services and diversion options for Indigenous Australians with psychosis should be a key public health and justice priority.

Clinicians' perceptions of the Australian Paediatric Mental Health Service System: Problems and solutions.
CONCLUSION: Within the current mental health system for children, structural, training and workforce barriers prevent optimal access to care. Clinicians identified many practical and systemic ideas to improve the system. Implementation and evaluation of effectiveness and cost effectiveness of these ideas is the next challenge for Australia's children's mental health.

Does a comprehensive service user-led education programme effect more positive attitudes towards recovery and less stigmatising attitudes towards people with lived experience of mental distress in medical students? A comparative cohort study.
This study sought to investigate the impact of a service user-led anti-stigma and discrimination education programme, encompassing numerous interventions focused on facilitating multiple forms of social contact, the promotion of recovery, and respect for human rights, on medical student attitudes. METHOD: A comparison cohort study was used to compare the attitudes of two cohorts of medical students who received this programme as part of their fifth (the fifth-year cohort) or sixth (the sixth-year cohort) year psychological medical education attachment (programme cohorts) with two cohorts of equivalent students who rec...

Voltage-gated potassium channel blanket testing in first-episode psychosis: Diagnostic nihilism?
CONCLUSION: Voltage-gated potassium channel antibody-associated limbic encephalitis was rare, and always associated with high antibody titres. Low-positive titres were not associated with the development of encephalitis over a long period of follow-up. The value of universal voltage-gated potassium channel antibody screening is unclear, and further prospective studies in first-episode psychosis populations are required.

The association between living in socially fragmented neighbourhoods and psychological distress among immigrant and non-immigrant people aged 45 and over in NSW, Australia.
CONCLUSION: Immigrants are vulnerable to mental health issues, but the characteristics of the area they live in are also important. Helping immigrants settle into well-integrated and economically advantaged areas may decrease the possibility of mental health issues.

Decreased integration of the frontoparietal network during a working memory task in major depressive disorder.
CONCLUSIONS: We report a putative mechanistic link between the global efficiency of the frontoparietal network and impaired n-back performance in major depressive disorder. This relationship is more pronounced at lower levels of symptom burden, indicating the possibility of multiple pathways to cognitive deficits in severe major depressive disorder.

CONCLUSION: Interventions targeted at younger people hospitalised with schizophrenia, a history of depression or self-harm, particularly with evidence of social and or health disadvantage, should be considered to improve long-term consumer and health system outcomes. These data can support policymakers to better understand the context and need for improvements in stepped or staged care for people frequently using inpatient mental health care.

Computerized cognitive behavioural therapy for gender minority adolescents: Analysis of the real-world implementation of SPARX in New Zealand.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: SPARX is a form of computerized cognitive behavioural therapy in serious game format funded via the Ministry of Health to be freely available in New Zealand. At registration users identify themselves as male, female, transgender or intersex. We aimed to establish whether adolescent transgender users of SPARX, compared to adolescent male and female users, were more likely to have high mental health needs at baseline and were more likely to complete SPARX. We also sought to determine changes in transgender adolescents' depressive symptoms after using SPARX. METHODS: Quantitative analysis of ...

Heart rate variability in patients with dementia or neurocognitive disorders: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: Heart rate variability, a quantitative measure of mainly parasympathetic activity, has been applied in evaluating many types of psychiatric and neurological disorders, including dementia (or neurocognitive disorders). However, although dementia patients often showed significantly lower heart rate variability (various indices) than healthy controls, and different types of dementia had distinct heart rate variability features, the results were not identical across studies. We designed a systematic review and meta-analysis for incorporating data from different studies. METHODS: We gathered st...

Informing National Health Service patients about participation in clinical research: A comparison of opt-in and opt-out approaches across the United Kingdom.
CONCLUSION: Findings suggest that 'opt-out' is more beneficial than 'opt-in', with the potential to vastly increase patient access to research opportunities and to enable greater equality of information provision for currently marginalised groups. This should ensure that healthcare research is more representative of the entire population, including those with a mental health diagnosis.

Implementing a systems approach to suicide prevention in a mental health service using the Zero Suicide Framework.
CONCLUSION: An all-of-service, systems approach to suicide prevention with a strong focus on cultural shifts and aspirational goals can be successfully implemented within a mental health service with only modest additional resources when supported by engaged leadership across the organisation. A continuous quality improvement approach is vital in the relentless pursuit of zero suicides in healthcare.

Multiple dimensions of sleep are consistently associated with chronically elevated depressive symptoms from late pregnancy to 3 years postnatal in Indigenous and non-Indigenous New Zealand women.
CONCLUSION: A significant proportion of Māori and non-Māori women experience chronically high depressive symptoms during the perinatal period and the following years. Across this extended time frame, Māori women have a higher probability of experiencing clinically significant depressive symptoms compared to non-Māori women. These persistent patterns of depressive symptoms occur concurrently with multiple dimensions of poor sleep. Given the well-described impact of maternal depression on the mother, child, family and community, this highlights the importance of healthcare professionals asking about mothers' sleep qualit...

The dynamic course of psychological outcomes following the Victorian Black Saturday bushfires.
CONCLUSION: Approximately one-fifth of people from high-affected areas have a probable psychological disorder a decade after the fires. Mental health appears to fluctuate for those who are not consistently resilient, apparently as a result of ongoing stressors. The observation that most people with probable disorder are not receiving care highlights the need for further planning about managing long-term mental health needs of disaster-affected communities.

The association between Twitter content and suicide.
CONCLUSIONS: These findings largely comport with the theory of suicide contagion and associations observed with traditional news media. They specifically suggest that tweets describing suicide deaths and/or sensationalized news stories may be harmful while those that present suicide as undesirable, tragic and/or preventable may be helpful. These results suggest that social media is both an important exposure and potential avenue for intervention.
