  • Prévalence des prescriptions psychopharmacologiques aux enfants placés
           en foyer de groupe et en centre de réadaptation
    • Authors: Julie Desjardins, Denis Lafortune, Francine Cyr
      Pages: 1 - 14
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health, Volume 36, Issue 3, Page 1-14, November 2017.
      Cette étude présente des données concernant la prévalence des psychopharmacoprescriptions chez les enfants de 6 à 12 ans placés dans les foyers de groupe et centres de réadaptation des Centres jeunesse du Québec. Elle précise les classes de molécules, les motifs de prescription et la formation du médecin prescripteur. L’échantillon comprend 101 enfants placés. Les données ont été obtenues par le biais de questionnaires remplis par les éducateurs et éducatrices responsables de ces derniers. Les résultats indiquent que 70 % des jeunes reçoivent au moins une prescription, le plus souvent signée par des médecins spécialistes. Les ordonnances se composent pour la plupart de psychostimulants et d’antipsychotiques, prescrits pour des troubles de l’attention avec hyperactivité.

  • Les effets d’une formation dans le domaine de la violence sexuelle sur
           les connaissances, les attitudes, l’autoefficacité et le transfert des
           apprentissages
    • Authors: Manon Bergeron, Martine Hébert, Louise Gaudreau
      Pages: 15 - 27
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health, Volume 36, Issue 3, Page 15-27, November 2017.
      Cette évaluation porte sur les effets d’une formation dans le domaine de la violence sexuelle, destinée au personnel en milieu scolaire et développée par un organisme communautaire spécialisé dans ce domaine. Les résultats indiquent que cette formation contribue à accroître les connaissances, les attitudes favorables exemptes de préjugés vis-à-vis la violence sexuelle et le sentiment d’autoefficacité du personnel scolaire (n = 42) à court terme et 3 mois après la formation. De plus, les participants et participantes rapportent une fréquence considérable de situations dans lesquelles ils ont transféré les apprentissages dans leurs pratiques professionnelles.

  • Looking for Help: Primary Care Providers’ Need for Collaboration to
           Deliver Primary Mental Healthcare Services
    • Authors: Pamela Wener, Roberta Lynn Woodgate
      Pages: 29 - 39
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health, Volume 36, Issue 3, Page 29-39, November 2017.
      Primary care providers deliver the majority of mental health care to individual Canadians. Researchers suggest that these practitioners are not prepared to deliver these services and require collaboration with mental health specialists to better meet patients’ needs. This study describes family physicians’ and nurse practitioners’ perceptions of the need for consultation and collaboration from mental healthcare specialists. The theme, Looking for Help, is explained by three categories: My Comfort Zone, I Lack the Education, and Not Enough Time. Findings from this study may inform future collaborative mental healthcare initiatives and primary care networks.

  • Determinants of Unmet Mental Healthcare Needs of Single Adults Who Are
           Homeless or Vulnerably Housed
    • Authors: Arnaud Duhoux, Tim Aubry, John Ecker, Rebecca Cherner, Ayda Agha, Matthew J. To, Stephen W. Hwang, Anita Palepu
      Pages: 41 - 57
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health, Volume 36, Issue 3, Page 41-57, November 2017.
      Persons who are homeless experience higher levels of mental illness, unmet mental healthcare needs, and physical healthcare needs than the general population. This study aimed (1) to determine the reasons contributing to having unmet mental healthcare needs (UMHCN) and (2) to examine the determinants of UMHCN among a representative sample of adults who are homeless or vulnerably housed in three Canadian cities (N=1190). Almost a quarter (23.3%) of the sample reported UMHCN in the past year. The reported reasons for having UMHCN pertained especially to the availability (31.5%), accommodation (22.1%), and acceptability (21.3%) of services. Age, city, and need-for-care variables were associated with UMHCN in multivariate analysis. Implications of the findings for policy and program planning are discussed. Les personnes sans-abri présentent des niveaux plus élevés de maladie mentale, de besoins de soins de santé et de besoins non comblés de soins de santé mentale que la population générale. Cette étude visait (1) à déterminer les raisons des besoins non comblés des soins de santé mentale (BNCSM) et (2) à examiner les déterminants des BNCSM auprès d›un échantillon représentatif d›adultes sans-abri ou logés de façon précaire dans trois villes canadiennes (N = 1190). Près d›un quart (23,3%) de l›échantillon a rapporté des BNCSM lors de l›année passée. Les raisons principales des BNCSM portaient sur la disponibilité (31,5%), l’accommodement (22,1%), et l›acceptabilité (21,3%) des services. L’âge, la ville et les besoins de soins étaient les variables associées aux BNCSM en analyse multivariée. Les implications des résultats pour la planification des services et le développement des politiques sont discutées.

           Empowering Individuals with Severe Mental Illness
    • Authors: Simone Arbour, Allison Stevens
      Pages: 59 - 63
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health, Volume 36, Issue 3, Page 59-63, November 2017.
      The Recovery College at Ontario Shores provides service users who have mental health challenges with courses, which they choose, to learn about recovery, mental health, treatment options, leisure, and fun. College components designed to enhance recovery also include peer support and access to the library to enhance individualized learning.

  • Integrative Strategies to Address Complex HIV and Mental Health Syndemic
           Challenges in Racialized Communities: Insights from the CHAMP Project
    • Authors: Josephine Pui-Hing Wong, Kenneth Po-Lun Fung, Alan Tai-Wai Li
      Pages: 65 - 70
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health, Volume 36, Issue 3, Page 65-70, November 2017.
      Marginalized communities bear a disproportionate burden of syndemic challenges related to HIV, mental illness and addiction. Stigma is a major barrier to effective responses. CHAMP, an innovative community-based intervention that integrated psychological intervention and collective empowerment strategies to reduce stigma, was found to be effective for such a population.

  • A Review of Measures of Aggregate Mental Health Costs in Canada
    • Authors: Philip Jacobs, Francine Knoops, Alain Lesage
      Pages: 1 - 17
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health, e-First Articles.
      Since 2000, 5 studies have been published that each purported to estimate aggregate national mental health costs in Canada. Each of these studies used a different method. Our aim was to compare the studies, and we created a framework for the different elements used to assess mental health costs (direct costs, indirect costs, transfer payments, and “human” costs). In addition, each study used different parameters (population covered, diagnosis) and cost components to estimate the economic impact of mental health. Our framework can help analysts to understand the purpose of different cost components. We conclude that to achieve a consensus on the magnitude of mental health costs, we need to use more standardized approaches.

  • Five Challenges of Designing Disability Income Support for People with
           Mental Illnesses: A Qualitative Case Study of Australia and Ontario
    • Authors: Ashley McAllister
      Pages: 1 - 18
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health, e-First Articles.
      In most disability income support (DIS) programs, mental illnesses is the fastest growing category of illness, but it is unknown how policy designers consider this vulnerable group. Forty-five DIS policy designers in Australia and Ontario explained how they consider mental illnesses when designing policy. Using a grounded theory approach, five challenges emerged: validating duration, proving an illness, (un)differentiating mental illnesses, managing mental illnesses, and separating the person from the illness. Each challenge is described and compared across Australia and Ontario. These challenges provide a framework for other settings to determine how well their DIS policies have considered mental illnesses in policy design.

  • Promoting Mental Well-Being Through Social-Emotional Learning in Schools:
           Examples from British Columbia
    • Authors: Shelley Hymel, Angela Low, Lindsay Starosta, Randip Gill, Kimberly Schonert-Reichl
      Pages: 1 - 11
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health, e-First Articles.
      Social and emotional learning is increasingly recognized as playing an important role in the promotion of positive mental health in schools. In 2012, the Mental Health Commission of Canada identified child and youth mental health as a priority for the transformation of mental health systems in Canada. To this end, comprehensive efforts to promote positive social and emotional development in schools and to foster safe and caring school environments are urgently needed. This paper highlights the multi-faceted approach undertaken in British Columbia over the past decade to promote positive mental health through social-emotional learning in schools.

  • The Implementation of the 2012 Mental Health Strategy for Canada Through
           the Lens of FASD
    • Authors: Tara Anderson, Mansfield Mela, Michelle Stewart
      Pages: 1 - 13
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health, e-First Articles.
      It is the current authors’ perspective that the successful implementation of Changing Directions, Changing Lives, which seeks to improve mental health and well-being in Canada, cannot be realized effectively without considering FASD. Given that 94% of individuals with FASD also have mental disorders, practitioners in the mental health system are encountering these individuals every day. Most mental health professionals have not been trained to identify or diagnose FASD, and therefore it goes largely “unseen,” and individual treatment plans lack efficacy. Implementation of FASD-informed recommendations, such as those of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (2015), can provide a more effective approach to mental health services and improve mental health outcomes.

  • Culturally Competent Commissioning; Meeting the Needs of Canada’s
           Diverse Communities: The Road Map to a Culturally Competent Mental Health
           System for All
    • Authors: Tiwalola Foluke Kolapo
      Pages: 1 - 14
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health, e-First Articles.
      Cultural competence has proven to be a very efficient tool in reducing healthcare disparities and improving healthcare experiences, compliance with therapy, and reducing incidents of misdiagnosis. This effect is because professionals are recognizing the value and significance of including the person in need of services in their assessment and decision making. While this rationale has also long been considered part of good practice among healthcare professionals (providers) within the mental health arena and nursing care and the success of its use has been reported widely in the provider and insurance arena, the notion seems to have escaped the commissioning arena. Commissioners are responsible for specifying, procuring, and monitoring services and are missing out on the value of completing culturally competent needs assessments for their localities. Synonymous with cultural competence is “person-centred care.” In recent times, cultural competence has contributed much to the commissioning of dementia services in a bid to improve and promote person-centred care. It could be argued that there is no person-centred care without cultural competence, which, in simplistic terms, can be defined as care that is undertaken in partnership with the recipient and is of value and significance to the recipient. Culturally competent commissioning and provision of care is therefore to be recommended as capable of addressing quality issues and the problematic variation in services available.

  • Internet-Delivered Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in a Canadian Community
           Hospital: A Novel Approach to an Evidence-Based Intervention
    • Authors: David Gratzer, Faiza Khalid-Khan, Shawnna Balasingham, Nadia Yuen, Janany Jayanthikumar
      Pages: 1 - 5
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health, e-First Articles.
      To increase access to evidence-based care, people with depression and anxiety in a Canadian community hospital were offered internet-delivered CBT (iCBT) or in-person CBT. The iCBT outpatients had a lower attrition rate with similar symptom reduction. Our results suggest that other clinics and hospitals could use iCBT to facilitate care.
