Communicating public health alcohol guidance for expectant mothers: a scoping report
Conclusion The current guidance is grounded in a biomedical approach, but communication and advice should reflect the fact that drinking in pregnancy is a socio-ecological issue.  The impact of guidance on alcohol consumption when pregnant or planning a pregnancy may be limited by many factors, including lack of clarity over the evidence, limited acknowledgement of ‘lived experience’ and lack of recognition of the influence of social networks.

Researchers find clues to treating psychoses in mental health patients
(University of Missouri-Columbia) Researchers at the University of Missouri recently found evidence that boosting how well people at risk for psychosis learn from positive and negative feedback could potentially keep psychosis at bay. The team also found that brain scans using functional magnetic resonance imaging, coupled with behavioral measures, could provide markers for the diagnosis of psychosis risk. Researchers hope findings will help mental health professionals to understand how to better treat their patients with psychoses and prevent the onset of psychosis.
