  • Mental Healthcare Needs in World Trade Center Responders: Results from a
           Large, Population-Based Health Monitoring Cohort
    • Abstract: Abstract Nearly two decades after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center (WTC), the prevalence of mental disorders remains elevated among traditional (e.g., police) and non-traditional (e.g., construction workers) responders who were involved in the WTC rescue, recovery, and clean-up efforts. To date, however, scarce research has examined factors associated with perceived need for mental health care, which is critical to promoting engagement in mental health treatment in this population. Data were analyzed from 16,170 WTC responders, including 8881 police responders and 7289 non-traditional responders, who completed their first annual health monitoring visit with the WTC Health Program an average of 6.5 years after September 11, 2001. Predisposing, enabling, and need-based factors associated with perceived need for mental health care were examined using multivariable logistic regression analyses. Nearly half (48.7%) of non-traditional responders and a fifth (20.6%) of police responders reported a need for mental health care. The most common perceived needs were for psychotropic medication, individual psychotherapy, and stress management counseling. Predisposing (e.g., female gender) and need-based factors (e.g., WTC-related posttraumatic stress disorder) predicted perceived need for mental health care in both groups. Among non-traditional responders, Hispanic ethnicity and current suicidal ideation were additionally associated with this outcome. Non-traditional WTC responders are substantially more likely than police WTC responders to perceive a need for mental health treatment. Characterization of factors associated with perceived need for treatment can help inform population-based outreach and monitoring efforts designed to promote engagement in mental health treatment in WTC responders.

  • The Healthcare Triple Aim in the Recovery Era
    • Abstract: Abstract Recovery is the guiding vision of mental health systems and policy. However, skepticism has emerged about whether the paradigm can achieve its sought goals. We argue that embedding recovery within a quality improvement framework, such as the Triple Aim, would increase leverage for systems change and advance recovery practice. The Triple Aim’s goals of improving healthcare outcomes, quality, and costs are pertinent to mental health systems, although action is also needed to address the social determinants of health. Accordingly, we propose the recovery-oriented Triple Aim, which could be used to guide policy development and evaluation of mental health services.

  • The Predicted Long-Term Benefits of Ensuring Timely Treatment and
           Medication Adherence in Early Schizophrenia
    • Abstract: Abstract The impact of initiatives aimed at reducing time in untreated psychosis during early-stage schizophrenia will be unknown for many years. Thus, we simulate the effect of earlier treatment entry and better antipsychotic drug adherence on schizophrenia-related hospitalizations, receipt of disability benefits, competitive employment, and independent/family living over a ten-year horizon. We predict that earlier treatment entry reduces hospitalizations by 12.6–14.4% and benefit receipt by 7.0–8.5%, while increasing independent/family living by 41.5–46% and employment by 42–58%. We predict larger gains if a pro-adherence intervention is also used. Our findings suggest substantial benefits of timely and consistent early schizophrenia care.

  • Public Health Coverage and Access to Mental Health Care for Youth with
           Complex Behavioral Healthcare Needs
    • Abstract: Abstract Drawing upon the National Survey of Children with Special Healthcare Needs (2009/2010), multilevel logistic regression analysis assessed the relationship between parent report of a youth having an emotional, behavioral, or developmental problem (EBDP), their level of reported functional limitations, and parents’ report of unmet mental health care needs and experience with cost-barriers to accessing needed healthcare services. Results indicate that, compared to all privately insured youth with special health care needs, parents of privately insured youth with EBDP are much more likely to report their child having unmet mental health care needs (OR 12.16; p < 0.001) and experiencing cost barriers to care (OR 2.37; p < 0.001). Parents of privately insured youth with EBDP with functional limitations are even more likely to report these concerns (Unmet Mental Health Needs: OR 17.09; p < 0.001; Cost Barriers: OR 5.77; p < 0.001). However, findings suggest that having public insurance is associated with reductions in the odds of having unmet needs for youth with SED by 50%. Public insurance and dual coverage is associated with reductions in the odds of encountering cost barriers to care by almost 50% for children with EBDP, and by more 50% for youth with EBDP and functional impairments.

  • Decision-Making in Mental Health Care: Measuring Provider and Supervisor
           Use of Evidence
    • Abstract: Abstract Use of evidence to inform clinical decisions has been shown to improve the quality and effectiveness of services. This study piloted an observational coding system for understanding providers and supervisors’ use of evidence in their clinical decision-making. The Action Cycle and Use of Evidence Behavioral Observation Coding System (ACE-BOCS) is based on Graham et al. (Contin Educ Health Prof 26:13–24, 2006) conceptual framework for knowledge management, which articulates a sequence relevant to integrating evidence into decisions and actions, including identifying and selecting a problem and choosing, planning, and rehearsing a solution or action. Using the ACE-BOCS, two coders rated the extensiveness with which evidence was used to inform decisions made in clinical supervision sessions. In these clinical supervision sessions, supervisor-provider dyads discussed cases (N = 30; age range 8–19 years; 80% Latino/a or Hispanic ethnicity) that were identified as potentially being at risk for low treatment engagement in school mental health services. Results indicated that the ACE-BOCS can reliably and validly measure use of evidence and distinguish between strategic and indiscriminate use of evidence. The ACE-BOCS has value and utility for studying use of evidence, as it incorporates multiple actions related to service delivery and has the potential to be adapted for other aspects of mental healthcare decision-making beyond clinical supervision, as well as decision making within fields outside of mental health.

  • Community Mental Health Professionals’ Perceptions About Engaging
           Underserved Populations
    • Abstract: Abstract This study explored mental health professionals’ perceptions about barriers and facilitators to engaging underserved populations. Responses were coded using an iterative thematic analysis based on grounded theory. Results revealed that many professionals endorsed barriers to engaging ethnic minorities and families receiving social services. Client-provider racial and linguistic matching, therapy processes and procedures (e.g., nonjudgmental stance), and implementation supports (e.g., supervision) were commonly nominated as engagement facilitators. Many professionals felt that an organizational culture focused on productivity is detrimental to client engagement.

  • When Do Therapists Stop Using Evidence-Based Practices' Findings from
           a Mixed Method Study on System-Driven Implementation of Multiple EBPs for
    • Abstract: Abstract Therapist discontinuation of delivering an evidence-based practice (EBP) is a critical outcome in the community implementation of EBPs. This mixed methods study examined factors associated with therapist discontinuation within a large reimbursement-driven implementation of multiple EBPs in public children’s mental health services. The study integrated quantitative survey data from 748 therapists across 65 agencies, and qualitative interviews from a subset of 79 therapists across 14 agencies. Therapists adopted, on average, 2.41 EBPs (SD = 1.05, range = 1–5), and nearly half (n = 355, 47.5%) reported discontinuing at least one EBP. Multi-level models were used to predict the binary outcome of discontinuation, and qualitative analyses were used to expand upon quantitative findings. Quantitative models revealed that therapist factors, including fewer direct service hours per week, a greater number of EBPs adopted, higher emotional exhaustion, and more negative attitudes toward EBPs in general were associated with discontinuation. In addition, EBP-specific factors including more negative perceptions of the particular EBP and lower self-efficacy for delivering the specific EBP predicted discontinuation. Themes from interview responses highlighted the importance of fit of the EBP with the agency’s client base, as well as therapist perceptions of adequate EBP training supports, and the alignment of an EBP with therapists’ professional goals. Together, the findings suggest the need for strategic sustainment planning interventions that target EBP fit (i.e., fit between adopted EBPs and agency target population, fit between EBP and therapist preferences and career goals) and support therapist self-efficacy in delivering EBPs.

  • Negotiating the Practical Meaning of Recovery in a Process of
    • Abstract: Abstract As implementation of recovery-oriented practices has proven difficult, this study investigates whether a participatory-inspired approach to implementing and adjusting a recovery-oriented model, RENEW-DK, might facilitate a more recovery-oriented practice among the professionals in public sector services. Ten narrative interviews with professionals was analyzed from a Science and Technology Studies perspective, and special attention was devoted to the concepts of distortion and stigmatization. Despite a one-year participatory process of model adjustment and implementation, professionals experienced RENEW-DK as a distortion and thus shaped their practice of RENEW-DK according to organizational requirements and professional beliefs instead of making their practice more recovery-oriented. The study calls attention to the need to acknowledge contradictions between intentions in general models and values in specific organizations with local norms and practices.

  • Psychometric Properties of a Fidelity Scale for Illness Management and
    • Abstract: Abstract This study examined the psychometric properties and feasibility of the Illness Management and Recovery (IMR) Fidelity scale. Despite widespread use of the scale, the psychometric properties have received limited attention. Trained fidelity assessors conducted assessments four times over 18 months at 11 sites implementing IMR. The IMR Fidelity scale showed excellent interrater reliability (.99), interrater item agreement (94%), internal consistency (.91–.95 at three time points), and sensitivity to change. Frequency distributions generally showed that item ratings included the entire range. The IMR Fidelity scale has excellent psychometric properties and should be used to evaluate and guide the implementation of IMR. Trial registration: Identifier: NCT03271242.

  • Defining and Predicting High Cost Utilization in Children’s
           Outpatient Mental Health Services
    • Abstract: Abstract Little is known about high-cost service users in the context of youth outpatient mental health, despite the fact that they account for a large proportion of overall mental healthcare expenditures. A nuanced understanding of these users is critical to develop and implement tailored services, as well as to inform relevant policies. This study aims to characterize high-cost service users by examining demographic factors, diagnoses, and service type use. Administrative service use data were extracted from a large County Department of Behavioral Health Services database. Latent profile analyses suggest a four-profile solution primarily distinguished by youth age and diagnostic complexity. Study findings have implications for defining high-cost service users and key targets for efforts aiming to improve outcomes for these youth.

  • Assessing the Fidelity of Evidence-Based Practices: History and Current
           Status of a Standardized Measurement Methodology
    • Abstract: Abstract Evidence-based practices are effective only when implemented faithfully. This paper explicates the history, standardization, and methods for developing and validating measures of fidelity. We overviewed the past 20 years of developing fidelity measures, summarized standardization of the development procedures, and described needed psychometric assessments. Fidelity assessment has become the sine qua non of implementation, technical assistance, and research on evidence-based practices. Researchers have established standardized procedures for scale development and psychometric testing. Widescale use of fidelity measurement remains challenging. The implementation of evidence-based practice and the development and validation of fidelity measures are interdependent. International improvements of mental health care will require attention to both.

  • Interactions Between Clinician and Organizational Characteristics to
           Predict Cognitive-Behavioral and Psychodynamic Therapy Use
    • Abstract: Abstract Conceptual models of implementation posit contextual factors and their associations with evidence-based practice (EBP) use at multiple levels and suggest these factors exhibit complex cross-level interactions. Little empirical work has examined these interactions, which is critical to advancing causal implementation theory and optimizing implementation strategy design. Mixed effects regression examined cross-level interactions between clinician (knowledge, attitudes) and organizational characteristics (culture, climate) to predict cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic therapy use with youth (N = 247 clinicians across 28 agencies). Results indicated several interactions, highlighting the importance of attending to interactions between variables at multiple levels to advance multilevel implementation theory and strategies.

  • Mental Health Care Gap: The Case of the Slovak Republic
    • Abstract: Abstract This study explored unmet mental health and social care needs in the Slovak Republic and their adverse human rights consequences. We estimated treatment gap for persons aged 15–64 years in year 2015 affected by depressive, anxiety, substance use and schizophrenic disorders by comparing local treated prevalence rates with population estimated rates for Europe. Two-thirds of people with depressive disorders and over 80% of those with anxiety disorders and alcohol dependence were not receiving treatment. There was no treatment gap for persons with schizophrenia. Fifty-one percent of those eligible for disability pension on the grounds of mental disorders failed to receive it. We discuss the implications of the estimated gaps in mental health and social care and consequent human rights violations that may result from the current system of mental health care in Slovakia.

  • Managing and Adapting Practice: Provider Perceptions of an
           Evidence-Informed Framework for Delivering Mental Health Services
    • Abstract: Abstract This study examined providers’ reflections on delivering managing and adapting practice (MAP), an evidence-informed framework that guides decision-making from scientific and client data. Consensual qualitative research methods were used to analyze the reflections of 201 youth mental health providers. Results indicated that providers approached MAP according to their own preferences and particular cases. While most appeared to approach MAP from a practice management standpoint, when faced with challenging cases, providers used coordination and outcomes management resources. Regardless of approach, most providers came to appreciate the full framework through reflective practice. Their diverse approaches offer lessons for evidence-based practice implementation and sustainment.

  • The Conceptualization of Mental Health Service Quality Assessment:
           Consumer Perspective
    • Abstract: Abstract This review synthesises theoretical approaches and methodological considerations in mental health service quality assessment from consumers-perspective. We searched published articles from databases: EMBASE, MEDLINE, CIHNAL, Scopus, Web of Science, and PsycINFO. Of the 30 included papers, 16 contained instruments used to mental health quality assessment and 14 focused on theoretical constructs. The review finds that mental health quality assessment is explained and measured using constructs that focus on structure, process and outcome. The methodological issues that need critical consideration are the context and cultural norms of services, outcome perspectives, evaluator, sources of information as well as the selection of consumers and instruments. The review recommends that researchers and clinicians should consider the theoretical constructs and methodological issues in mental health quality assessment.

  • Practitioners' Use and Evaluation of Transdiagnostic Youth Psychotherapy
           Years After Training and Consultation Have Ended
    • Abstract: Abstract We examined practitioners’ use of the transdiagnostic Modular Approach to Therapy for Children (MATCH) 7 years after learning MATCH for a clinical trial. The practitioners (N = 29; Mage = 52.10, SD = 12.29, 86% women, 97% white) reported using MATCH with 55% of their caseload; use of the various MATCH modules ranged from 39 to 70%. Use was positively associated with amount of MATCH experience in the trial, perceived effectiveness, and ease of implementation. Patterns of specific module use did not consistently match strength of prior evidence (e.g., exposure was least used of the anxiety modules), suggesting challenges for implementation science.

  • Application of Self-determination Theory to Illness Self-management
           Interventions: Identifying Mediators
    • Abstract: Abstract NIMH requires intervention research to utilize an experimental therapeutic approach, identifying mediators to examine causal mechanisms of change. The authors propose utilizing self-determination theory (SDT) to guide research design for self-management interventions, using Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) as an exemplar. To delineate the theory’s relevance to self-management interventions and recovery outcomes, the authors describe the main constructs of SDT and demonstrate its applicability to WRAP and recovery. Suggestions for research design and measurement strategies are provided.

  • Measuring the Activity of Mental Health Services in England: Variation in
           Categorising Activity for Payment Purposes
    • Abstract: Abstract In the context of international interest in reforming mental health payment systems, national policy in England has sought to move towards an episodic funding approach. Patients are categorised into care clusters, and providers will be paid for episodes of care for patients within each cluster. For the payment system to work, clusters need to be appropriately homogenous in terms of financial resource use. We examine variation in costs and activity within clusters and across health care providers. We find that the large variation between providers with respect to costs within clusters mean that a cluster-based episodic payment system would have substantially different financial impacts across providers.

  • Predicting Psychiatric Rehospitalization in Adolescents
    • Abstract: Abstract Adolescent psychiatric rehospitalizations are common, cause patients and their families severe psychological distress, and use tremendous healthcare resources. This study sought to identify predictors of rehospitalization in 783 adolescents in the 2 year period following psychiatric hospitalization at a major treatment facility in a large urban area. A current diagnosis of posttraumatic stress disorder, greater severity of lifetime suicidal ideation (SI) and stronger treatment alliance prior to hospitalization were associated with a greater likelihood of rehospitalization. Overall, severe lifetime SI was the strongest predictor of rehospitalization; although, within the first 4 months post-discharge, moderate lifetime SI was the strongest predictor. Future research should continue to identify additional factors that may influence rehospitalization, such as the intensity of post-discharge services.
