Disrupted daily routines mediate the socioeconomic gradient of depression amid public health crises: A repeated cross-sectional study
CONCLUSION: From July 2019 to July 2020, the mediating role of daily routine disruptions in the socioeconomic gradient of depression in Hong Kong increased. It is thus implied that infection control measures should consider the relevant potential mental health impacts accordingly.PMID:34677098 | DOI:10.1177/00048674211051271 (Source: The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry)

Positive mental health framework of transdiagnostic protective factors in elucidating the association between adverse childhood experiences and severe mental disorders

Antipsychotic utilisation and persistence in Australia: A nationwide 5-year study
CONCLUSIONS: Oral second-generation antipsychotics and second-generation antipsychotic long-acting injectables accounted for over 75% and 13% of all antipsychotics in Australia, respectively. Concerns over medication adherence and subsequent relapse have not translated into increased long-acting injectable usage despite their significantly longer persistence. Clozapine, the single most 'persistent' antipsychotic, was only used in 9% of people, although up to a third of all cases are likely to be treatment-resistant. Our data suggest clinicians should give consideration to the earlier use of second-generation antipsychotic ...

The incidence and admission rate for first-episode psychosis in young people before and during the COVID-19 pandemic in Melbourne, Australia
CONCLUSION: There was a mild increase, which did not reach statistical significance, in the overall incidence of first-episode psychosis; however, the pattern of presentations changed significantly, with nearly twice as many cases presenting in the later months of the restrictions. There was a significant increase in both voluntary and involuntary admissions, and the possible explanations for these findings are discussed.PMID:34651504 | DOI:10.1177/00048674211053578 (Source: The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry)

A comparison of experiences of care and expressed emotion among caregivers of young people with first-episode psychosis or borderline personality disorder features
CONCLUSION: Caregivers of young people with borderline personality disorder experience higher levels of negative experiences related to their role and expressed emotion compared with caregivers of young people with first-episode psychosis. The mechanisms underpinning associations between caregiver experiences and expressed emotion differ between these two caregiver groups, indicating that different supports are needed. For borderline personality disorder caregivers, emotional over-involvement is associated with both negative and positive experiences, so a more detailed understanding of the nature of emotional over-involvem...

Correlates of anxiety and depression in a community cohort of people who smoke methamphetamine
CONCLUSION: The high rates of anxiety and/or depression found in the VMAX cohort were associated with demographic, socio-economic, substance use and other health and social factors. The prevalence of moderate to severe anxiety is a novel finding that warrants further study. Further work is needed to determine how anxiety and depression change over time among people who smoke methamphetamine, to help identify key intervention points.PMID:34558302 | DOI:10.1177/00048674211048152 (Source: The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry)

The aim of this study was to identify the presence of this proposed marker in individuals currently with anorexia nervosa relative to healthy controls, and to identify the state independence and heritability of this putative marker by exp...

Transitioning to civilian life: The importance of social group engagement and identity among Australian Defence Force veterans
CONCLUSION: Engaging with supportive social groups can support transition to civilian life. Reintegration may be improved via effective linkage with programmes (e.g. volunteering, ex-service support organisations) that offer supportive social networks and draw upon veterans' desire to give back to community.

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: Recent research has suggested that a type of atypical eye movement, called square wave jerks, together with anxiety, may distinguish individuals with anorexia nervosa from those without anorexia nervosa and may represent a biomarker and endophenotype for the illness. The aim of this study was to identify the presence of this proposed marker in individuals currently with anorexia nervosa relative to healthy controls, and to identify the state independence and heritability of this putative marker by exp...

Non-response to psychotherapy for borderline personality disorder: A systematic review
CONCLUSION: Results of this review suggest that a large proportion of people are not responding to psychotherapy for borderline personality disorder and that factors relating to non-response are both elusive and inconsistently reported. Novel, tailored or enhanced interventions are needed to improve outcomes for individuals not responding to current established treatments.PMID:34525867 | DOI:10.1177/00048674211046893 (Source: The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry)
