BACKGROUND: Effective financing mechanisms are essential to ensuring that people can access and utilize effective treatments and services. Financing mechanisms are needed not only to pay for the delivery of those treatments and services, but also ancillary costs, while also keeping care affordable. AIMS: This article highlights key areas of the interest of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) in supporting applied health economics and health care financing research...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Michael C Freed, Jennifer L Humensky, Patricia A Arean
BACKGROUND: Aligning cost of mental health care with expected clinical and functional benefits of that care would incentivize the delivery of high value treatments and services. In turn, ineffective or untested care could still be offered but at costs high enough to offset the delivery of high value care. AIMS: The authors comment on Benson and Fendrick's paper on Value-Based Insurance Design (VBID) for mental health in the September 2023 special issue of this journal...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Claire de Oliveira, Bryan Tanner
BACKGROUND: The economic burden of chronic psychotic disorders is substantial. However, few studies have employed an incidence based approach to estimate the economic burden of chronic psychotic disorders. Furthermore, the existing work has mainly used models populated with data obtained from published literature, making several assumptions to estimate incidence-based costs. AIMS OF THE STUDY: The objective of this study was to estimate the direct cumulative mean health care costs of chronic psychotic disorders, using an incidence-based, cost-of-illness approach and real-world data from a single-payer health care system...

BACKGROUND: Consensus-guidelines for prescribing antidepressants recommend that clinicians should be vigilant to match antidepressants to patient's medical history but provide no specific advice on which antidepressant is best for a given medical history. AIMS OF THE STUDY: For patients with major depression who are in psychotherapy, this study provides an empirically derived guideline for prescribing antidepressant medications that fit patients' medical history...

JOURNAL ARTICLE

BACKGROUND: Many individuals with serious mental illness (SMI) are capable of employment in regular jobs (i.e. jobs paying at least minimum wage, not set aside for persons with disabilities, and not obtained with assistance from mental health services), but they may need job accommodations to be successful. The extant literature focuses almost exclusively on accommodations for workers with SMI who are receiving employment support, so we know almost nothing about the nature or frequency of accommodations needed by workers who are independently employed...

JOURNAL ARTICLE

BACKGROUND: The COVID-19 pandemic has been widely reported to have increased symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. It may also have significantly disrupted continuity of treatment for existing patients and made access for those newly seeking care more difficult at a time when treatment needs are higher. AIMS OF THE STUDY: This study seeks to examine the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health status and mental health treatment among adults residing in the U...

JOURNAL ARTICLE

BACKGROUND: In the US, much of the research into new intervention and delivery models for behavioral health care is funded by research institutes and foundations, typically through grants to develop and test the new interventions. The original grant funding is typically time-limited. This implies that eventually communities, clinicians, and others must find resources to replace the grant funding -otherwise the innovation will not be adopted. Diffusion is challenged by the continued dominance in the US of fee-for-service reimbursement, especially for behavioral health care...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Maddison N North, Alex R Dopp, Jane F Silovsky, Marylou Gilbert, Jeanne S Ringel
BACKGROUND: Evidence-based treatments (EBTs) are critical to effectively address mental health problems among children and adolescents, but costly for mental health service agencies to implement and sustain. Financing strategies help agencies overcome cost-related barriers by obtaining financial resources to support EBT implementation and/or sustainment. AIMS: We sought to (i) understand how youth mental health system decision-makers involved with EBT implementation and sustainment view key features (e...

BACKGROUND: The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) remains committed to addressing real-world challenges with delivering high quality mental health care to people in need by advancing a services research agenda to improve access, continuity, quality, equity, and value of mental healthcare nationwide, and to improve outcomes for people with serious mental illnesses (SMI). The NIMH-Sponsored Mental Health Services Research Conference (MHSR) is a highly productive venue for discussing topics of interest to NIMH audiences and disseminating NIMH's latest research findings directly to mental health clinicians, policy makers, administrators, advocates, consumers, and scientists who attend...

#11
JOURNAL ARTICLE
Nicole M Benson, A Mark Fendrick
BACKGROUND: While consumer cost-sharing is a widely used strategy to mitigate health care spending, numerous studies have demonstrated that even modest levels of out-of-pocket cost are associated with lower use of medical care, including clinically necessary, high-value services. Within mental health care, increases in cost-sharing are associated with reductions in use of mental health care and psychotropic medication use. Further, these reductions in mental health services and treatments can lead to downstream consequences including worsening of psychiatric illness and increased need for acute care and psychiatric hospitalization...

BACKGROUND: Per federal law, "988" became the new three-digit dialing code for the National Suicide & Crisis Lifeline on July 16, 2022 (previously reached by dialing "1-800-283-TALK"). AIMS OF THE STUDY: This study aimed to produce state-level estimates of: (i) annual increases in 988 Lifeline call volume following 988 implementation, (ii) the cost of these increases, and (iii) the extent to which state and federal funding earmarked for increases in 988 Lifeline call volume are sufficient to meet call demand...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Nev Jones, Franco Mascayano, Ezra Susser, Lawrence H Yang
Over the past two decades, consensus has emerged in WHO and other international organizations regarding the foundational role and importance of integrated service users - individuals with lived experience of mental health services and systems - into mental health clinical and services research. At present, support and infrastructure in the United States (US) lags behind many other high-income, Anglophone and Western European countries. This Perspective, originally part of the 2022 NIMH Mental Health Services Research Conference's "Forecasting the Future" plenary panel, makes the case for systematic and coordinated investment in the policy, funding, infrastructure and organizational change that would be necessary to substantively strengthen participatory and co-produced mental health services research in the US...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Sadaaki Fukui, Wei Wu, Jaime Greenfield, Michelle P Salyers, Gary Morse, Jennifer Garabrant, Emily Bass, Eric Kyere, Nathaniel Dell
BACKGROUND: Human resources (HR) departments collect extensive employee data that can be useful for predicting turnover. Yet, these data are not often used to address turnover due to the complex nature of recorded data forms. AIMS OF THE STUDY: The goal of the current study was to predict community mental health center employees' turnover by applying machine learning (ML) methods to HR data and to evaluate the feasibility of the ML approaches. METHODS: Historical HR data were obtained from two community mental health centers, and ML approaches with random forest and lasso regression as training models were applied...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Joyce Mason, Audrey Laporte, James T McDonald, Paul Kurdyak, Claire de Oliveira
BACKGROUND: Mental disorders are typically stigmatized conditions associated with negative stereotypes, which may lead individuals to underreport them. Thus, survey data may be subject to biases. Although administrative data has some limitations, it is an alternative data source that may be considered more objective. AIMS OF THE STUDY: This study aimed to identify the degree of agreement between survey and administrative health care data for mental health conditions, factors affecting underreporting, and whether underreporting also occurs for physical health conditions...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Lyoung H Kim, Dominic Hodgkin, Mary J Larson, Michael Doonan
BACKGROUND: The Affordable Care Act (ACA) aimed to expand mental health service use in the US, by expanding access to health insurance. However, the gap in mental health utilization by race and ethnicity is pronounced: members of racial and ethnic minoritized groups remain less likely to use mental health services than non-Hispanic White individuals even after the ACA. AIMS OF THE STUDY: This study assessed the effect of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on mental health services use in one large state (California), and whether that effect differed among racial and ethnic groups...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Marjorie L Baldwin, Allan C DeSerpa, Steven C Marcus
BACKGROUND: This study provides the first systematic analysis of the association between workplace disclosure of serious mental illness (SMI) and the probability of gainful employment, among workers employed in regular jobs. By regular job, we mean one that pays at least minimum wage, is not set aside for persons with disabilities, and was not obtained with assistance of mental health services. By gainful employment, we mean a regular job with monthly earnings that exceed the maximum allowable earned income for receipt of Social Security Disability Insurance...

BACKGROUND: Bipolar disorder is among the top 10 causes of disability worldwide. The Short-Form Six-Dimension (SF-6D) is a frequently used measure of preference-based health-related quality of life (HRQOL). However, this measure's psychometric performance has not been tested in outpatient patients with bipolar disorder. AIMS OF THE STUDY: This study assessed the psychometric properties of the SF-6D, including convergent validity, known-groups validity, and responsiveness...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Lanlan Chu, Lufei Teng
BACKGROUND: As the COVID-19 pandemic quickly spread worldwide, mental health deterioration was found to be closely associated with not only the contagious disease itself but also the financial struggles caused by job or income loss during this difficult time. OBJECTIVE: This study investigates how stimulus check payments are associated with the probable anxiety and depression faced by U.S. individuals during the COVID-19 pandemic. METHODS: Using data from Phase 3...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Jessica Acolin
BACKGROUND: Suicide is a leading cause of death for adults aged 18-64 in the United States, and suicide risk is highest among those with previous attempts. Two evidence-based treatments for suicide prevention exist: dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), a year-long intensive treatment, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a brief (10-12 session) treatment. To our knowledge, no direct comparison of the two treatments yet exists AIMS: To analyze the cost-effectiveness of DBT compared to CBT, in terms of both cost and quality of life, for the prevention of future suicide attempt among previous attempters...
