Content analysis of the literature| Recovery and quality of life for individuals with serious mental illness

Lopez, Nancy 18 June 2016 (has links)
<p> Mental illness can be debilitating and gravely affect the quality of life (QoL) of individuals with mental disorders. What is more, it is often difficult for individuals to manage their disorder while maintaining a good QoL and to work towards a recovery that encompasses all aspects of their lives. This content analysis of 23 scholarly articles attempted to collect as many influencing factors to QoL and recovery, both positive and negative. The results indicated that there are a variety of environmental, psychological, and social elements that affect QoL and recovery. Social support and social networks were cited most often as improving QoL and aiding in recovery while stigma was found hinder recovery and improved QoL. Additionally, it gathered information about different treatments, interventions, and resources used to treat mental disorders. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a therapeutic intervention, was found to be a commonly used intervention. Recommendations for social work practice, policy, and future research regarding mental health are also presented in this analysis.</p>

A joint collective for community engagement and bridge building focusing on persons with untreated mental illness| A grant proposal

Mina, Maureen T. 15 September 2016 (has links)
<p> This thesis project explores the chronic issue of untreated mental illness as a social problem within the context of the County of Santa Barbara California&rsquo;s mental health public policy decision making process. As the county&rsquo;s Board of Supervisors considers implementation of the California Legislature&rsquo;s Assembly Bill AB1421, which provides for Assisted Outpatient Treatment, it is essential that the board fully consider the issues, community perspectives and impact. Funding to be requested in the following grant proposal is to be used for interventions providing an educational forum focusing on diverse stakeholder perspectives in order to develop implementation recommendations. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not required for the completion of this project. An assessment of current research establishes both that untreated mental illness is a serious social problem with high costs to the individual and communities, as well as the importance of community involvement in the development of public policy.</p>

Access to Mental Health Treatment for Youth in the U.S.| Predisposing, Enabling, and Need Determinants

Washington, Melanie E. 19 June 2018 (has links)
<p> With one in five youth in the United States (US) having a diagnosable mental illness in a given year and fewer than seven percent receiving needed treatment, a tremendous burden has been placed on the US economy and society. Given the lack of connection between mental health service need, resource availability, and factors influencing receipt of treatment, this study aims to lay the groundwork, elucidating the complexity of mental health for youth using Anderson&rsquo;s Behavioral Model of Service Use. Before further system modifications are made or policy revisions, there needs to be a full understanding of the problem. Utilizing the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, factors that potentially influence reported mental health concerns and service utilization, such as age, gender, SES, geographic location, race/ethnicity, religion, and insurance status, were explored. The results showed that youth with the highest prevalence of MDE in 2015 were White, high SES, females, living in urban settings, with private insurance. However, higher prevalence of MDE did not equate with increased utilization of mental health services, even though MDE was the most significant predictor of mental health utilization in the final logistic regression model. Given the barely adequate fit of the model, important variables are missing in determining access to mental health care in youth. Therefore, it is recommended that a more robust national mental health survey be developed to provide greater understanding of the associated factors to receipt of mental health treatment, in addition to more research to further understand the impact of insurance status and geographic location.</p><p>

Criminogenic Needs and Mental Illness| A Qualitative Study of Correctional Mental Health Clinicians' Views

Johnson, Amy 10 May 2018 (has links)
<p> The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore correctional mental health clinicians&rsquo; views of the role mental illness plays in offending behavior, barriers to effective treatment and receptiveness to criminogenic interventions. The sample consisted of 15 mental health clinicians working in an urban jail. The consensus among participants that was untreated mental illness is a vulnerability factor leading to criminal risk factors. As such, limited support was found for the criminalization hypothesis. There was general endorsement of implementing criminogenic interventions to target criminal risk factors. Barriers to effective treatment largely pertained to lack of collaboration with the sheriff&rsquo;s department and environmental constraints. There was a perceived need for increased community services for continuity of care of inmates following release. The results suggest that social workers should advocate for an integrated treatment approach to target criminal risk factors in addition to mental health needs.</p><p>
