Ellen Karine Grov, Alv A Dahl
The current study was undertaken to explore the experiences of individuals with mental health problems or substance use when introduced to systematic golf activities. The study examined the perceived impact of golf activities on participants' physical and mental health, social contact, and daily activities, as well as their overall evaluation of involvement in a Golf as Therapy group. This qualitative, cross-sectional study gathered data from 12 individual interviews. Qualitative content analysis based on the information from meaning units, subcategories, categories, and themes determined the interpretation of manifest and latent concepts...

Psychiatric nurses have a level of responsibility for everyone residing on the unit, which contributes to the need to nurse the population on the unit as a whole. Because the knowledge base regarding psychiatric nursing interventions in acute care settings is limited, this hermeneutic phenomenological study explored psychiatric nurses' experiences in providing nursing interventions to adult clients in acute care settings. Six expert psychiatric nurses were recruited through purposive, snowball sampling and were interviewed individually to gain a rich understanding of the psychiatric nursing interventions they provided to adult clients in acute care mental health settings...

The current study examined Veterans' attitudes about the potential use of telepsychiatry for mental health treatment in routine clinical settings. Data were collected from Veteran outpatients (N = 253) who completed a series of self-report screening measures as part of their initial evaluation at an outpatient clinic providing care to Veterans with deployment-related mental health problems. Using a de-identified data repository, symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, and stress, as well as attitudes and level of comfort with receiving treatment through telehealth were assessed...

Adolescent mothers have been shown to have lower self-esteem than nonparenting adolescents. The purpose of the current clinical project was to explore the feasibility of adopting a school-based support group model to provide education and skills for increasing self-esteem and self-confidence among adolescent mothers using self-efficacy-focused activity sessions. This project took place at an alternative public school for pregnant and/or parenting female adolescents. Participants attended self-efficacy-focused activity sessions, and completed the General Self-Efficacy Scale...

Depression rates among Arab adolescents are expected to rapidly increase necessitating research-based data to aid in planning effective strategies to implement primary prevention and treatment interventions. The current study aimed to capture Jordanian adolescents' experience of depression, identify perceived contributing factors, and assess their attitudes toward depression interventions. An exploratory, qualitative design was used to collect data from 92 participants (age range = 14 to 17) through 12 focus groups...

Individuals with borderline personality disorder (BPD) exhibit persistent patterns of instability in mood, impulse control, self-image, and interpersonal relationships. These issues complicate quality end-of-life care for this population and are of particular concern for hospice and palliative care nurses and health care providers. This article presents case studies of terminally ill individuals with BPD as a series of vignettes that present common clinical issues encountered by the palliative care team. Interventions suggested in the literature as well as approaches used by team members when working with terminally ill individuals with BPD are discussed...

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a prevalent diagnosis among Veterans and is linked to psychosocial functioning impairment across various domains, including marriage, employment, parenting, family, and education. Veterans are more likely to be divorced, unemployed, and experience difficulties with parenting. Some research has suggested that improvement in PTSD-specific symptoms can also improve psychosocial functioning. An integrative review was conducted to explore the content and effectiveness of evidence-based psychotherapy (EBP) interventions to improve psychosocial functions and investigate conditions for symptom change...

The current article discusses the diagnosis of bipolar disorder in children throughout the years as it has evolved, focusing on very early-onset and early-onset bipolar disorder. Proper care of children with bipolar disorder requires a thorough understanding of the subtleties in symptoms at different developmental ages, as well as a shift in diagnostic thinking, which grew to include disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD). DMDD was added to address potential overdiagnosis of an already unusual diagnosis in young children...

Nancy L Falk, Claire Taylor-Schiller
Estimates indicate that approximately 20% of adults 65 and older have one or more mental health or substance use conditions. As caregivers, mental health nurses are natural advocates for older patients facing mental health challenges in the clinical environment. Substantive opportunities exist to shape older adult mental health and well-being through advocacy. Nurse advocates can be effective influencers helping address key challenges at the intersection of mental health, aging, and policy. Resource barriers such as workforce issues and funding challenges, coupled with the stigma associated with mental health, are three of the many areas where nurses can advocate to make a positive difference in the lives of older adults...

The current article explores the challenges of correctional nursing and provides implications for nursing practice and advocacy for optimal outcomes for incarcerated individuals with mental illness. The role of the nurse as advocate and educator is discussed. Opportunities for changing the conversation that addresses the criminalization of mental illness, stigma, and social policy is presented as a path forward.

Substance use disorders (SUDs) remain difficult to treat, with relapse rates averaging 50% despite available treatment. There is a need for new and novel treatment for treating SUDs. The use of virtual reality (VR) shows promising results as a strategy to help patients with SUDs manage cravings, say no to substance use, reduce stress and anxiety, treat pain, learn life skills, exercise, and use as a substitute for substance use. In VR, patients use a head-mounted device to experience computer-generated 360° simulated environments...

Barbara J Limandri
Since Sackett et al.'s epic throw down of the gauntlet in 1996, the hallmark of quality health care practice has been evidence-based clinical decision making. But what does it mean to base one's practice on evidence, and what are the barriers to evidence-based prescribing? The current article addresses these questions and offers suggestions to improve one's evidence-based practice. [Journal of Psychosocial Nursing and Mental Health Services, 57(6), 9-13.].
