Disease relevance of Mental Health


Psychiatry related information on Mental Health


High impact information on Mental Health

  • Action plan peps up Europe's mental health [11].
  • For dysthymia, paroxetine improved mental health functioning vs placebo among patients whose baseline functioning was high (difference in mean [SE] change in SF-36 mental component scores, 5.8 [2.02]; P =. 01) or intermediate (difference in mean [SE] change in SF-36 mental component scores, 4.4 [1.74]; P =.03) [12].
  • From the Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health Administration [13].
  • Women's mental health measures were significantly better in the intervention group (MCS, 3.03 [95% CI 1.53-4.52]; EPDS -1.92 [-2.55 to -1.29]; EPDS 13+ odds ratio 0.57 [0.43-0.76]) than in controls, but the physical health score did not differ [14].
  • BACKGROUND: Public Law 102-321 established a block grant for adults with "serious mental illness" (SMI) and required the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to develop a method to estimate the prevalence of SMI [15].

Chemical compound and disease context of Mental Health

  • However, little is known about patterns of benzodiazepine use in specialty mental health settings [16].
  • An analysis of the attitudes of the U.S. Supreme Court toward psychiatry, as expressed in the Court's major opinions on mental health law from 1975 to 1983, reveals significant discrepancies from case to case [17].
  • Among those who continued antidepressants beyond 30 days, antidepressant continuity during the subsequent 60 days was significantly associated with fair or poor pretreatment self-rated mental health and physical health, treatment with a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor or serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, and psychotherapy [18].
  • The authors analyzed 1975 data on the use of health and mental health services by the 2.3 million people covered by Michigan Blue Cross and Blue Shield [19].
  • Meta-analysis of 58 controlled studies and analysis of the claims files for the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Federal Employees Plan for 1974-1978 provide mutually supporting evidence of the cost-offset effects of outpatient mental health treatment [20].

Biological context of Mental Health

  • Significant improvements from baseline to follow-up were observed among New-to-Epo patients in vitality, physical functioning, social functioning, mental health, looking after the home, social life, hobbies, and satisfaction with sexual activity (P < 0.05 for each) [21].
  • Physical and mental health were documented using the Medical Outcomes Study 36-Item Short-Form Health Survey. Subgroup analyses assessed the influence of age, sex, age at onset, duration of the disease, phenotype, and CAG repeat length on test performance [22].
  • Furthermore, public health surveillance systems should include questions on seizures, epilepsy, and mental health to better examine associations among these disorders and to better identify populations meriting further assessment and intervention [23].
  • The relations were not explained by confounding by smoking and by physical and mental health and, to a large extent, were not mediated by cholesterol or blood pressure [24].
  • The tramadol/APAP group had significant improvements on the role-physical (P = 0.005), bodily pain (P = 0.046), role-emotional (P = 0.001), mental health (P = 0.026), reported health transition (P = 0.038), and mental component summary (P = 0.008) subscales of the SF-36 [25].

Anatomical context of Mental Health


Gene context of Mental Health

  • RESULTS: Physical health related QOL was reported to be worse, and mental health related QOL better, in RA than in AS in people of working age [28].
  • RESULTS: In logistic regression models, older children, children with a wave 1 DSM-III-R diagnosis, children with more total behavior problems and family conflict, and children receiving a pediatric referral were more likely to receive mental health services [29].
  • At wave 2, mothers completed a survey of mental health services their child had received [29].
  • Significant improvements with etanercept in the MOS energy and mental health subscales, current health (from the feeling thermometer), and mental and physical function components of the SF-36 were reported (P < 0.05) [30].
  • Benign mental health consequences of screening for mutations of BRCA1/BRCA2 [31].
