Does School Functioning Matter in Patients of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services?

General population studies have demonstrated that good school functioning protects children and adolescents against mental health problems. However, no such studies of clinical populations have been conducted. Therefore, we explored the association between school functioning and mental health in patients referred to child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS). We also examined whether good school functioning and general social competence at referral predicted better mental health

Pragmatic language impairment general and specific associations to mental health symptom dimensions in a child psychiatric sample

Introduction Many children who are referred to psychiatric services have difficulties in communicating effectively in daily life and talking about their problems. The results of several international studies indicate a higher prevalence of language difficulties among children with mental health problems and that these difficulties often remain undiscovered unless specific assessments of language and communication are done (1). Cohen et al. (2) found undiagnosed language problems in 40% of their

Factors that Affect Adolescent Adherence to Mental Health and Psychiatric Treatment: a Systematic Integrative Review of the Literature

Although adherence to somatic treatment has been studied extensively, adherence to mental health treatment has not. In this study, the term treatment adherence is used to refer to adherence to medication regimes and other non-pharmacological recommended treatments as part of mental health and psychiatric care. Knowledge of factors connected to adolescents’ adherence to such treatment is fairly fragmented. Although treatment staff members are broadly aware of the factors that influence adherence

The migration and its accompanying stressors may relate to their mental health problems (5). Turkey hosted 677,917 Syrian adolescents in the 10-14 age range. Adolescence is a lifespan in which requires many developmental tasks. This period can be more complicated for immigrant youth facing migration difficulties. Acculturation

The Influence of Mental Health, Psychosocial Factors, and Educational Skills on the Educational Aspirations of Indigenous Sámi and Non-Indigenous Adolescents in the Arctic

Background:Mental health and psychosocial factors seem to influence the educational aspirations of adolescents, which are also known to be related to educational skills and sociodemographic factors such as gender, ethnicity, religious affiliation, and socioeconomic status. Previously, the relationship between educational aspirations and mental health, psychosocial factors, and educational and sociocultural conditions has not been investigated in Arctic adolescents.Objective:We aimed to

Mental Health and/or Mental Illness: A Scoping Review of the Evidence and Implications of the Dual-Continua Model of Mental Health

Eaton (1951) proposed that mental health ‘merges imperceptibly and gradually like the colours of the spectrum into mental illness’ (as cited by Herron and Trent, 2000). This description illustrates a bipolar relationship between mental health and mental illness; a relationship and assumption that underpins clinical psychology and mental health care design (Keyes, 2005). The bipolar model implies that mental health and mental illness reflect opposite ends of the same continuum, where an

Introduction Adolescence is a time of marked growth and change (1). These changes enable young people to become adults but also put them at risk for developmental problems (1). Mental health disorders are the most common illness group in adolescence (2). Mental health disorders can be divided into internalizing and externalizing disorders (3). In internalizing disorders, the symptoms are directed at oneself, i.e. the problem is internalized (3). Examples of internalizing disorders/symptoms

Inpatient units offer acute mental health services for the most acutely ill adolescents, and there is an increasing need for this type of service (4). However, stigma and a distinct need for autonomy may hinder adolescents from seeking or receiving help (5). Thus, acute inpatient treatment can also result in involuntary treatment (6).

Can the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) help characterize the types of psychopathologic conditions driving child psychiatry referrals?

Introduction There is a clear recognition of the limited resources available in child and adolescent psychiatry across the world. For example, in the United States, that is most likely one of the countries with the largest number of child psychiatrists in the world, there are only 9.75 trained child psychiatrists per 100,000 children (1). This is clearly an inadequate number of psychiatrists trained to attend to the large number of youth with mental health needs in general and the many affected
