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 effect of concomitant benzodiazepine use on neurocognition in stable, long-term patients with bipolar disorder.
nos L, García-Blanco A Abstract OBJECTIVE: Neurocognitive dysfunction is a common feature of bipolar disorder even in euthymia, and psychopharmacological treatment could have an effect on cognition. Long-term prescription of benzodiazepines in bipolar disorder is a common practice, and their effect on neurocognition has not been well studied in this population. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of concomitant benzodiazepine long-term use on neurocognitive function in stable euthymic bipolar disorder patients. METHODS: Seventy-three euthymic bipolar disorder outpatients and 40 healthy ind...

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.

Revisiting lorazepam challenge test: Clinical response with dose variations and utility for catatonia in a psychiatric emergency setting.
CONCLUSION: This study suggests 2 mg lorazepam may be an optimal LCT dose, given significant response to most catatonic signs thereby ensuring accurate detection and preventing misinterpretation of response. It offers future studies direction for standardizing lorazepam dosing schedules for catatonia management and exploring neurobiological underpinnings for individual catatonic signs that may be potentially different, given these findings.

Harnessing motivation for sustainable practice change: From passive receivers to active co-creators.
CONCLUSION: While improvement methodologies and the use of implementation strategies are necessary, experience would suggest that by themselves they are not sufficient. Overcoming the challenges of implementing change will require a significant shift in our thinking about organisational leadership and the way that change is introduced. Some practical ways leaders can foster staff buy-in for organisational change are proposed.

Changes in antidepressant therapy should be considered early in patients with inadequate response to a first-line agent.
Abstract Deciding when and how to change treatment in patients with major depressive disorder who have inadequate response to initial antidepressant therapy is an important everyday clinical question. Here, we ask whether an early change of approach is superior to a delayed change. We consider the recommendations provided by recent guidelines, examine the evidence behind this guidance and suggest a decision tree to clarify treatment options and timing. Both the early and late-change strategies may have their place in clinical practice. However, we take the view that an earlier than currently usual change in antide...

Minocycline as adjunctive treatment for major depressive disorder: Pooled data from two randomized controlled trials.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Randomized controlled clinical trials that have investigated minocycline as an adjunctive treatment for major depressive disorder have proved promising. Data from two studies were pooled to evaluate more definitively whether the addition of minocycline to standard treatment for major depressive disorder leads to an improvement of depressive symptoms when compared with placebo. METHODS: Both studies were multi-site, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trials of minocycline 200 mg/day added to treatment as usual during a 12-week period. The primary outcome measure was change in depres...

Whither economic evaluation in the case of COVID-19: What can the field of mental health economics contribute within the Australian context?
Abstract COVID-19 has resulted in broad impacts on the economy and aspects of daily life including our collective mental health and well-being. The Australian health care system already faces limitations in its ability to treat people with mental health diagnoses. Australia has responded to the COVID-19 outbreak by, among other initiatives, providing reimbursement for telehealth services. However, it is unclear if these measures will be enough to manage the psychological distress, depression, anxiety and post-traumatic distress shown to accompany infectious disease outbreaks and economic shocks.

Neurological, neuropsychiatric and neurodevelopmental complications of COVID-19.
Abstract Although COVID-19 is predominantly a respiratory disease, it is known to affect multiple organ systems. In this article, we highlight the impact of SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus causing COVID-19) on the central nervous system as there is an urgent need to understand the longitudinal impacts of COVID-19 on brain function, behaviour and cognition. Furthermore, we address the possibility of intergenerational impacts of COVID-19 on the brain, potentially via both maternal and paternal routes. Evidence from preclinical models of earlier coronaviruses has shown direct viral infiltration across the blood-brain bar...
