‘It's good to have the knowledge and the confidence’: Mental health student nurses' views of a medication workshop

Nursing regulatory agencies have called for the administration of medications in a safe manner a critical nursing role, and nursing regulatory bodies have mandated that it be included in undergraduate education. However, it has been reported that qualified nursing staff are dissatisfied with the skills taught by students. As such, a two-day evidence-based workshop on medication administration for final-year nursing students was facilitated to address knowledge gaps. The aim of this research was to examine internship mental health student nurses' experiences of a two-day medication administration workshop. This report has highlighted the positive effect of a 2-day workshop delivered in the final year of mental health student nurse education, on their confidence and competence in the area of medication administration. It provides some insight into how a practical collaborative approach to this type of education between academics and clinicians might help students overcome the theory-practice divide.

Nothing about Us without Us: Inclusion and IRB Review of Mental Health Research Protocols

A variety of unique ethical issues have been presented in research on mental health and illness. Institutional review boards can improve their reports of such studies by including the viewpoints of individuals with the condition under scrutiny, whether as members of the IRB or as consultants. This essay argues that institutional review boards can enhance such studies by including the viewpoints of individuals with the condition under scrutiny whether they are members of the IRB or as consultants thereto.

Domestic and family violence knowledge and skills: A private mental health service survey of nurses, allied health, and medical clinicians

Mental health services can play a vital role in recognizing and responding to domestic and family violence. The aim of this research was to assess staff knowledge, confidence, and clinical skills in family violence in an Australian private mental health facility. The majority of clinicians reported working with patients who had reported family violence, but the majority of clinicians had no education in the area, with nurses reporting the lowest education levels. Less than 20% reported concrete knowledge of critical health conditions, including key family violence indicators, investigating family violence, and responding to reports.

Creative adolescent experiences of education and mental health during COVID‐19: A qualitative study

During the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic, this qualitative report investigated young adolescents' views of their educational and mental health experiences. In the Spring 2021 semester, participants attended an all-day creative career workshop. The five focus groups were led by semi-structured interviews conducted for this study, which took place during the workshop. Classroom reforms based on COVID 19's strategies, experiences of alienation, misengagement, and disappointment, as well as feelings of sympathy and admiration for their educators were woven into creative adolescents' education during the pandemic. Creative youth faced psychiatric disorders related to adjustment issues, poverty, and hopelessness, as well as loneliness.

Enhanced supported living for people with severe and persistent mental health problems: A qualitative investigation

Supported living has been shown to raise functioning and social stability in people with severe and persistent mental illness, reduce hospitalization, and provide safe housing in a population where housing needs are often unmet. Individual experiences are often lacking a thorough examination of individual experiences, with a reliance on quantitative studies. It's difficult to ensure that supported accommodations are supportive of the residents' ongoing recovery process. The present study sought to illuminate residents' experiences in an enhanced supported living scheme in the United Kingdom. Transcripts were analyzed using thematic analysis; three key areas of experiences that were particularly useful to residents were determined: support from care staff who was readily available; a sense of community and on-site activities; and the experience of supported living as a stepping stone in an ongoing recovery process.

Engaging youth in stakeholder analysis for developing community‐based digital innovations for mental health of young people in Ingwavuma community, in KwaZulu‐Natal Province, South Africa

South Africa's critical shortage of mental health service professionals and services for young people with common mental disorders is ineffective. Due to socioeconomic hardships, social networks that help teenagers in South African communities are fading. Developing ethical digital mental health technologies has the ability to improve services, especially in rural communities where mental health services are scarce. The active participation of young people in optimising uptake and reducing apathy on the use of digital technologies for mental stability is critical to maximising uptake and reducing apathy. This research involved young people in identifying stakeholders for initiating a community-based mental health service in a rural area using the nominal group method. Young people in the community had conflicting opinions about the degree of power and interest that their peers, family members, health professionals, and social care services were looking into developing digital mental health interventions.

Sleep, insomnia and mental health

Although sleep plays vital regulatory roles for mental stability, sleep disorders, in particular insomnia, may favor a state of allostatic overload impairing brain neuroplasticity and stress immune pathways, contributing to mental disorders. Insomnia may play a role as a risk factor, a comorbid condition, and a transdiagnostic symptom for several psychological disorders, including mood/anxiety disorders and schizophrenia. In this context, insomnia therapy can not only support regular sleep patterns but also the nervous system, neuroinflammation, and brain plasticity. The Insomnia therapy may have a crucial preventive and neuroprotective role with cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia, as the treatment with new evidence of success for insomnia, psychopathology, and indices of disruptioned neuroplasticity. Therapeutic options focusing on melatonergic systems and novel therapeutic options based on orexinergic pathways may be beneficial routes of intervention that may lead to new windows on insomnia treatment in mental disorders.

The Achieved Capabilities Questionnaire for Community Mental Health (ACQ‐CMH): A consumer‐based measure for the evaluation of community mental health interventions

A growing number of experiments based on the capabilities approach to outcome measurement are being introduced. New customer-valued programs, developed in collaboration with customers, are here considered critical for a radical change. Concerning community mental stability, new consumer-valued initiatives, which are now considered critical for a transformative change. The Achieved Capabilities Questionnaire for Community Mental Health was developed in collaboration with community mental health professionals. The present paper demonstrates advancements in the measurement validation by a confirmatory factor analysis within a sample of community mental health consumers. Findings point to the accuracy, sensibility, both convergent and discriminant validity of using the ACQCMH in community mental health assessments.

Towards age‐friendly municipalities: What are municipalities doing to support their ageing population with mental health problems?

Municipalities in Western Europe have increasingly been obligated to ensure their populations' healthy aging, but are they willing to do so? We are investigating the knowledge, attitudes, capabilities, and mandates of 33 Belgian, Dutch, and German municipalities to assist elderly people, particularly those with dementia, people with late-life depression, and informal caregivers. We conducted semistructured interviews with municipal policymakers and other interested stakeholders from May 2017 to January 2018. As part of the Senior Friendly Communities Interreg initiative, we conducted semi-structured interviews with municipal policymakers and other interested parties from May 2017 to January 2018. The results indicate that dementia was a more prominent theme in municipal policies than depression; that informal caregivers were considered more relevant but not easy to recognize; and that conducting this investigation ended up being an intervention itself.

Economic Recovery but Stagnating Mental Health During a Global Pandemic? Evidence from Ghana and South Africa

One year later, we look at a three-wave panel of households in Accra and Greater Johannesburg to investigate the urban poor's emotional and economic stability during the COVID19 lockdown and the "new normal" one year later. Mental health is not improved when economic factors are highly correlated with mental stability and mental stability in South Africa and Ghana, raising questions about the future and a lack of information about the pandemic, depleting physical stability, and government distrust are all contributing to why mental stability has not recovered.
