Women engage in multiple strategies to cope with the impact of intimate partner violence (IPV). Prior research has focused predominantly on women's service utilization and help seeking as individual acts, yet it is likely that women engage in distinct patterns of multiple help-seeking strategies to achieve safety. As such, the current article examines patterns of service-related help-seeking strategies survivors employ. This article also investigates demographic factors, relationship characteristics, and mental and physical health effects of IPV associated with patterns of help seeking...

Adverse childhood experiences and trauma significantly impact physical and mental health. Increased maternal perinatal depression/anxiety, preterm labor, and low birth weight, as well as infant morbidity and mortality, are some examples of the impact of trauma on perinatal health. Trauma-informed care begins with knowledge about trauma, the ability to recognize signs of a trauma response, responding to patients effectively, and resisting retraumatization. As holistic providers, perinatal nurses can create safe care environments, establish collaborative patient relationships based on trust, demonstrate compassion, offer patients options when possible to support patient autonomy, and provide resources for trauma survivors...

Importance: Women veterans increasingly seek care yet continue to face barriers in the Veterans Health Administration (VA), which predominantly cares for men. Evidence-based collaborative care models can improve patient access to treatment of depression, which is experienced at higher rates by women. While the VA has implemented these care models nationally, it is not known whether access improvements occur equitably across genders in primary care. Objective: To examine whether the VA's national Primary Care-Mental Health Integration (PC-MHI) initiative (beginning 2007) expanded realized access to mental health care similarly for men and women...

Background: The Children and Young People's Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (CYP-IAPT) programme was introduced to transform Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) across England. The programme comprised a set of principles that local CAMHS partnerships were expected to operationalise and embed with the aim of increasing access to services and improving the quality of care. This study explored how the implementation of the CYP-IAPT programme was executed and experienced by CAMHS professionals in the county of Cambridgeshire (UK), and the extent to which the CYP-IAPT principles were perceived to be successfully embedded into everyday practice...

The early decades of the pastoral care movement were characterized by a remarkable collaboration with psychiatry. While historians of the religious aspects of this movement have noted the reliance of pastoral care on psychiatry and psychology, it has been less clear how and why mental health professionals elected to work with clergy. This paper uses the Michigan Society of Pastoral Care (MSPC), one of the early training programs for hospital chaplains on the model of the Boston-based Institute for Pastoral Care, as a window to explore the interactions between psychiatry and religion at mid century...

In this study, we identify existing interactive knowledge translation tools that could help patients and health-care professionals to prevent diabetes complications in the Canadian context. We conducted an environmental scan in collaboration with researchers and 4 patient partners across Canada. We conducted searches among the research team members, their networks and Twitter, and through searches in databases and Google. To be included, interactive knowledge translation tools had to meet the following criteria: used to prevent diabetes complications; used in a real-life setting; used any instructional method or material; had relevance in the Canadian context, written in English or French; developed and/or published by experts in diabetes complications or by a recognized organization; created in 2013 or after; and accessibility online or on paper...

Pediatricians are increasingly asked to address the mental health care needs of their patients, despite lack of formal mental health training. Pediatricians who wish to expand their scope of practice to include mental health care may benefit from didactic training as well as ongoing consultative or collaborative relationships with mental health specialists. Consultative and collaborative relationships between mental health and primary care have evolved in various models across the country. We outline models of mental health consultation and collaboration, address some considerations for pediatricians prior to adopting a model, and list key collaborative care resources...

A greater understanding of factors that are associated with successful outcomes among patients receiving collaborative depression care services is needed. This study sought to examine the unique associations between 3 indices of social ties and changes in depressive symptoms among veterans receiving collaborative depression care management. Data on sociodemographics, behavioral health indices, perceived general health, perceived social support, frequency of negative social exchanges, and degree of social contact were extracted from the electronic health records of 868 veterans meeting criteria for at least moderate depressive symptom severity and enrolled in a Primary Care-Mental Health Integration (PCMHI) program...

Background: In order to develop a district child and adolescent mental health (CAMH) plan, it is vital to engage with a range of stakeholders involved in providing CAMH services, given the complexities associated with delivering such services. Hence this study sought to explore multisectoral dynamics in providing CAMH care in one resource-constrained South African district as a case study, towards informing the development of a model for district mental health plan and generating lessons for mental health systems strengthening to support CAMH services using the Health Systems Dynamics (HSD) framework...

With up to 70% of primary care visits prompted by psychosocial concerns, busy primary care clinics are increasingly addressing complex behavioral health (BH) needs. Substantial evidence demonstrates that the integration of BH into primary care improves access and outcomes, yet clinics face significant challenges in real-world implementation. This collaborative care integration project used psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner faculty as integration and BH specialists at an urban primary care clinic serving a diverse and largely indigent population...

BACKGROUND: With the continued spread of COVID-19 in the United States, identifying potential outbreaks before infected individuals cross the clinical threshold is key to allowing public health officials time to ensure local health care institutions are adequately prepared. In response to this need, researchers have developed participatory surveillance technologies which allow individuals to report emerging symptoms daily so that their data can be extrapolated and disseminated to local health care authorities...
