Because I was the new nurse on the unit, my patient assignment was determined following the input of more senior nurses. My assignments varied, but typically half the patients I worked with were older adults who had been admitted to inpatient psychiatry for treatment of severe major depression, bipolar disorder, substance abuse, or treatment-refractory neuropsychiatric symptoms in the context of dementia.

Insurance Claim Data Show How Much Teen Mental Health Has Suffered During the U.S. COVID-19 Pandemic
As early as last spring, psychologists were warning that even as children and teens were spared most of the physical impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the shuttering of schools, the lack of contact with friends and the loss of milestones like birthday parties, graduations and more would exact a heavy emotional and developmental price.

In a new study by the nonprofit FAIR Health, investigators combed through a database of 32 billion U.S. health insurance claims—focusing on the two billion or so from 2019 to 2020&mdash...
