  • Nature doesn't judge you – how urban nature supports young people's
           mental health and wellbeing in a diverse UK city
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 February 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Jo Birch, Clare Rishbeth, Sarah R. Payne Reviewed research reveals a lack of young people's voices articulating if and how urban nature supports their mental health and wellbeing. This paper presents qualitative research with young multi-ethnic urban residents living in a northern UK city and offers an important counter-narrative to the pervasive notion of childhood nature-deficit disorder. Using interviews and creative arts workshops, we explored the value of urban nature for the mental health and wellbeing of 24 young people aged 17–27 years, 9 of whom had lived experience of mental health difficulties. Trees, water, open spaces and views were frequently experienced nature typologies offering benefits. Deteriorating landscapes, young people's shifting identities and perceived time pressures disrupted support. Young people expressed how urban nature encounters were experienced as accepting and relational, offering a: stronger sense of self; feelings of escape; connection and care with the human and non-human world.
       
  • Using micro-geography to understand the realisation of wellbeing: A
           qualitative GIS study of three social enterprises
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 14 February 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Jane Farmer, Peter Kamstra, Chris Brennan-Horley, Tracy De Cotta, Michael Roy, Jo Barraket, Sarah-Anne Munoz, Sue Kilpatrick Social enterprises are promoted as a method of welfare reform, to transition people out of disadvantage by addressing poverty, unfulfilled capabilities and social exclusion. This study explores how three Work Integration Social Enterprises (WISEs) in Australia help to realise wellbeing for their employees by mapping their micro-geographical experience of wellbeing. By mapping the sites within a social enterprise where wellbeing is realised, we provide a practical, empirical and replicable methodology that is useful for gaining insights into where and how wellbeing realisation occurs. This situates wellbeing as an upstream place-based resource likely to influence downstream health outcomes.
       
  • Evaluating care farming as a means to care for those in trauma and grief
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 13 February 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Joanne Cacciatore, Richard Gorman, Kara Thieleman The interrelationships between nature, health, and wellbeing are increasingly recognized and incorporated into therapeutic interventions. Care farming, the concept of utilizing agricultural places and practices for providing care, therapy, and rehabilitation, is a paradigmatic example of this shift. This mixed method study empirically evaluates the efficacy of care farming as an intervention for individuals affected by traumatic grief, a complex experiential condition. Both quantitative and qualitative results suggest this care farm intervention was beneficial, yielding significant reductions in subjective distress to grief intensity. The study's findings add to the growing body of evidence on care farming and support green care as a therapeutic potential for individuals affected by traumatic grief.
       
  • Google-truthing to assess hot spots of food retail change: A repeat
           cross-sectional Street View of food environments in the Bronx, New York
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 10 February 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Nevin Cohen, Michael Chrobok, Olivia Caruso Google Street View (GSV) images can be used to “ground-truth” current and historical food retail data from approximately 2007 - when GSV was launched in a few US cities - to the present, facilitating analyses of food environments over time. A review of GSV images of all food retailers listed in a government database of licensed establishments in the Bronx, New York enabled records to be verified, businesses classified, and retail change quantified. The data revealed several trends likely to affect food access and health: increasing overall numbers of food retailers; the growth of dollar stores; and numerous openings, closings, and ownership changes across all food retail segments. Hot spot analysis identified statistically significant clusters of new dollar stores and bodegas, purveyors of less healthy processed foods, in lower-income neighborhoods in the South Bronx that face elevated rates of diet-related diseases. This article demonstrates the benefits and limitations of using GSV to conduct “virtual” food environment research.
       
  • Facilitating barriers: Contextual factors and self-management of type 2
           diabetes in urban settings
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 10 February 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Krista Banasiak, Jan Hux, Charlene Lavergne, Jonathan Luk, Parmjit Sohal, Breay Paty Urban environments create unique challenges for the management of type 2 diabetes (T2D). City living is associated with unhealthy occupational, nutritional, and physical activity patterns. However, it has also been linked to behaviours that promote health, such as walking and cycling for transportation. Our research is situated at the intersection of these contradictory findings. We ask: What aspects of urban living impact the ability of those living with diabetes to reach optimal health' What contextual and structural factors influence how barriers are experienced in the everyday lives of those living with T2D'We conducted semi-structured interviews with 29 individuals living in Toronto and Vancouver. Interviews were recorded, transcribed, and systematically coded for themes and sub-themes.In addition to affirming readily acknowledged barriers to diabetes management, such as accessing healthy, culturally appropriate food and the cost of management, our findings suggest that the unpredictable nature of urban living creates barriers to routinizing self-management practices. As large, cosmopolitan centres with an abundance of activities on offer, cities pulls people away from home, making adherence to self-management recommendations more difficult. Moreover, our findings challenge commonly held assumptions about the mutually exclusive and static nature of barriers and facilitators. Public transit, a readily acknowledged facilitator of healthy living, can be experienced as a barrier to diabetes management. Participants report intentional non-adherence to their medication regimens for fear of hypoglycemia in subway or traffic delays. While the stimulating nature of cities promotes walkability, it produces barriers as well: participants partake in more restaurant eating than they would if they lived in a rural area and were home to cook their own meals.Understanding how barriers are experienced by people living with diabetes will help mitigate some of the unintended consequences associated with various contextual factors. We recommend that healthcare professionals acknowledge and support people with T2D in routinizing self-management and developing contingency plans for the unpredictability and complexity that urban living entails. We suggest further research be carried out to develop contextually-tailored municipal policies and interventions that will support self-management and improve outcomes for individuals living with T2D in urban settings.
       
  • Using mixed methods to understand women's parenting practices related to
           their child's outdoor play and physical activity among families living in
           diverse neighborhood environments
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 5 February 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Maura M. Kepper, Amanda E. Staiano, Peter T. Katzmarzyk, Rodrigo S. Reis, Amy A. Eyler, Derek M. Griffith, Michelle L. Kendall, Basant ElBanna, Kara D. Denstel, Stephanie T. Broyles A convergent parallel mixed methods design was used to understand parenting practices for outdoor play, their influence on adolescent's physical activity and outdoor play and the role of the neighborhood and child's sex. Adolescents (n = 263) and their parents completed questionnaires and wore accelerometers. Parents (n = 30) participated in in-depth interviews. Parenting practices were examined by neighborhood disadvantage and child's sex in quantitative (Chi-square and T-tests) and qualitative (comparative thematic analysis) samples. Multi-level linear mixed models examined the associations between parenting practices and two adolescent outcomes: physical activity and outdoor play. Parents in high disadvantage neighborhoods and of female adolescents imposed more restrictions on outdoor play. Restrictive parenting practices were negatively associated with outdoor play, but not physical activity. Policy and environment change that improves neighborhood conditions may be necessary to reduce parents' fear and lessen restrictions on outdoor play.
       
  • Reframing school-based restorative justice as a structural population
           health intervention
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 4 February 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Jelena Todić, Catherine Cubbin, Marilyn Armour, Michele Rountree, Thalia González School-based restorative justice has gained national prominence as an effective approach to interrupting the school-to-prison pipeline. Remarkably, despite its simultaneous positive association with academic success, school safety, and school connectedness, most scholars and practitioners do not associate restorative justice with health. Using ecosocial theory, we conceptualize school-based restorative justice as a structural population health intervention. Our findings indicate that students attending schools using restorative justice have lower odds of missing school due to adverse health and better academic outcomes compared to students who do not. Restorative justice shows promise as a structural intervention that can contribute to improving population health.
       
  • Urban gentrification and declining access to HIV/STI, sexual health, and
           outreach services amongst women sex workers between 2010-2014: Results of
           a community-based longitudinal cohort
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 1 February 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Shira M. Goldenberg, Ofer Amram, Melissa Braschel, Sarah Moreheart, Kate Shannon Despite increasing gentrification across North American cities, little is known about impacts on work and living environments and health access for marginalized women. Drawing upon prospective cohort and external spatial data, we examined changes in land use and sex workers’ work/living environments in relation to gentrification exposure in Metro Vancouver (2010–2014), and modeled independent effects of gentrification exposure on reduced utilization of HIV/STI testing, sexual health, and sex worker support services. These decreases occurred despite efforts to scale-up HIV services for marginalized populations. Planning of healthcare, housing, and other support services should be responsive to shifting urban landscapes for marginalized women.

  • Health disparities attributable to air pollutant exposure in North
           Carolina: Influence of residential environmental and social factors
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 31 January 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Ji-Young Son, Kevin J. Lane, Marie Lynn Miranda, Michelle L. Bell Understanding the environmental justice implications of the mortality impacts of air pollution exposure is a public health priority, as some subpopulations may face a disproportionate health burden. We examined which residential environmental and social factors may affect disparities in the air pollution-mortality relationship in North Carolina, US, using a time-stratified case-crossover design. Results indicate that air pollution poses a higher mortality risk for some persons (e.g., elderly) than others. Our findings have implications for environmental justice regarding protection of those who suffer the most from exposure to air pollution and policies to protect their health.
       
  • Associations among neighborhood poverty, perceived neighborhood
           environment, and depressed mood are mediated by physical activity,
           perceived individual control, and loneliness
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 26 January 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Sarah D. Kowitt, Allison E. Aiello, Leigh F. Callahan, Edwin B. Fisher, Nisha C. Gottfredson, Joanne M. Jordan, Kathryn E. Muessig Few studies have documented the pathways through which individual level variables mediate the effects of neighborhoods on health. This study used structural equation modeling to examine if neighborhood characteristics are associated with depressive symptoms, and if so, what factors mediated these relationships. Cross-sectional data came from a sample of mostly rural, older adults in North Carolina (n = 1,558). Mediation analysis indicated that associations among neighborhood characteristics and depressive symptoms were mediated by loneliness (standardized indirect effect = −0.19, p

Carnethon, Sharrelle Barber, Penny Gordon-Larsen, April P. Carson, Pamela J. Schreiner, Anne E. Bantle, Kara M. Whitaker, Kiarri N. Kershaw Although racial residential segregation and interpersonal racial discrimination are associated with cardiovascular disease, few studies have examined their link with diabetes risk or management. We used longitudinal data from 2,175 black participants in the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) Study to examine associations of racial residential segregation (Gi* statistic) and experiences of racial discrimination with diabetes incidence and management. Multivariable Cox models estimated associations for incident diabetes and GEE logistic regression estimated associations with diabetes management (meeting targets for HbA1c, systolic blood pressure, and LDL cholesterol). Neither segregation nor discrimination were associated with diabetes incidence or management.
       
  • Urban regeneration and mental health: Investigating the effects of an
           area-based intervention using a modified intention to treat analysis with
           alternative outcome measures
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 23 January 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Ade Kearns, Seemanti Ghosh, Phil Mason, Matt Egan A quasi-experimental study of the mental health impacts of regeneration was carried out across fifteen communities in Glasgow, UK, grouped into five and then four types of intervention area. Regression modelling was undertaken to examine the effects of living in each type of area upon mental health (MCS-12 and SF-12 MH) and mental wellbeing (WEMWBS). Living in regeneration areas had no impacts on mental health or wellbeing, possibly due to incomplete implementation. Positive impacts from living in areas of housing improvement were not evident separately for areas of high-rise housing. Areas surrounding regeneration areas exhibited gains in mental health and wellbeing, contrary to notions of negative spillover. Moving between areas had negative effects, especially for those moving beyond the study areas. Changes in mental wellbeing appear less substantial compared with changes in mental health.
       
  • Disabled people's embodied and emotional geographies of (not)belonging in
           Aotearoa New Zealand
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 January 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Carey-Ann Morrison, Esther Woodbury, Lynda Johnston, Robyn Longhurst This article addresses embodied and emotional geographies of (not)belonging for disabled people in Aotearoa New Zealand. The concept of ‘embodied belonging’ is used to show that bodies, things, place and space intersect in complex ways to produce contradictory feeling of (not)belonging in ‘disability spaces’. Disability spaces can offer a direct challenge to ableism and create feelings of belonging for disabled people. They can also, however, reinforce normative identities and ideologies within and beyond disability spaces. We draw upon qualitative data collected through individual and focus group interviews, and written responses from 12 disabled people and three family members of disabled people to show that disability spaces are not inherently more inclusive of disabled people but rather bodies, things, place and space combine in various ways to produce shifting exclusionary and/or enabling arrangements. A focus on lived, felt and spatial elements of belonging to and in disability spaces can deepen understandings of what it means for disabled people to feel in and out of place.
       
  • Journeying together: A visual exploration of “engagement” as a journey
           in HIV programming and service delivery
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 17 January 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Sarah Switzer, Sarah Flicker, Alexander McClelland, Soo Chan Carusone, Tatiana B. Ferguson, Neil Herelle, Derek Yee, Adrian Guta, Carol Strike The experiences of people living with, or impacted by HIV, who participate in research and programming are relatively-well documented. However, how stakeholders within the HIV sector understand engagement, or how it functions discursively, is undertheorized. We used a comparative case study design and photovoice to explore engagement in three community-based organizations providing HIV programs or services in Toronto, Canada. We invited stakeholders to photograph their subjective understandings of engagement. We employ a visual and thematic analysis of our findings, by focusing on participants’ use of journey metaphors to discuss engagement within and across sites. Visual metaphors of journey were employed by participants to make sense of their experience, and demonstrated that for many, engagement was a dynamic, affective and relational process. Our findings illustrate how journey may be an apt metaphor to explore the relational, contingent and socio-spatial/political specificities of engagement within and across HIV organizations. We conclude with a discussion on implications for practice.
       
  • Population-level linkages between urban greenspace and health inequality:
           The case for using multiple indicators of neighbourhood greenspace
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 13 January 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Meghann Mears, Paul Brindley, Anna Jorgensen, Ravi Maheswaran Exposure to greenspace in urban environments is associated with a range of improved health and well-being outcomes. There is a need to understand which aspects of greenspace influence which components of health. We investigate the relationship of indicators of greenspace quantity (total and specific types of greenspace), accessibility and quality with poor general health, depression, and severe mental illness, in the city of Sheffield, UK. We find complex relationships with multiple greenspace indicators that are different for each health measure, highlighting a need for future studies to include multiple, nuanced indicators of neighbourhood greenspace in order to produce results that can inform planning and policy guidance.
       
  • Placing volunteered geographic health information: Socio-spatial bias in
           311 bed bug report data for New York City
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 8 January 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Sara McLafferty, Daniel Schneider, Kathryn Abelt Health researchers and policy-makers increasingly use volunteered geographic information (VGI) to analyze spatial variation in health and wellbeing and to develop interventions. As socially constructed data, health VGI reflect the people who perceive issues and choose to report them, and the digital systems that structure the reporting process. We propose a conceptual framework that describes the interlocking effects of socioeconomic, behavioral, geographic, and technological processes on VGI accuracy and credibility. GIS and statistical methods are used to analyze social and geographical biases in health-related VGI through a case study of bed bug complaint data from New York City's 311 system. Reports of bed bug infestation from 311 are mapped and modeled to uncover associations with socioeconomic and built environment characteristics. Factors associated with bed bug report credibility are examined by comparing characteristics of confirmed reports with those for reports in which inspectors found no evidence of infestation (negative reports). A multilevel model of credibility incorporating report-, building-, and tract-level variables reveals strong geographical and socioeconomic biases, with negative reports generated more frequently from high-value residential buildings located in high-income neighborhoods with predominately white, non-Hispanic populations. Using 311 data for all bed bug reports, rather than confirmed reports, obscures the burden of these pests in high poverty neighborhoods and diminishes socioeconomic disparities. Mistaken reporting also has economic costs, as each report triggers an inspection by city inspectors that entails time, monetary, and opportunity costs.
       
  • “Just because they aren't human doesn't mean they aren't alive”: The
           methodological potential of photovoice to examine human-nature relations
           as a source of resilience and health among urban Indigenous youth
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 6 January 2020Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Darrien Morton, Kelley Bird-Naytowhow, Tamara Pearl, Andrew R. HatalaAbstractPhotovoice has been widely used as a participatory visual research methodology within the social sciences and health research. Given photovoice's critical and pedagogical potential, its advancement within Indigenous resilience and health research has been particularly prevalent. However, it has largely failed to problematize the concept of ‘voice’ to the extent of theorizing and engaging with the ‘voices’ of other kinds of life with consequences for theory and method. In this paper we re-examine the methodological potential and utility of photovoice methods to include other-than-human ‘voices’ during the empirical study of place-making, human-nature relations, and resilience and health. We analyze photo-narratives from a community-based, participatory research project involving Indigenous youth in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in order to revisit 1) what we did to produce those images and 2) what we saw and heard in images. Our results suggest that when photovoice methods consider a relational and affective understanding of subjective reality during research practice, they have the capacity to capture and handle other-than-human ‘voices’. Accordingly, we discuss future directions when adapting photovoice methods for the study of environmental repossession and dispossession within contested contexts of and encounters with methodological complexity, uncertainty, and emergence.
       
  • The utility of conceptualisations of place and belonging in workforce
           retention: A proposal for future rural health research
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 31 December 2019Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Christina Malatzky, Catherine Cosgrave, Judy GillespieAbstractThis paper explores the utility of sense of place, place attachment and belonging-in-place for research into rural health workforce retention. One of the key contributors to health disparities between rural and metropolitan-based residents is inadequate staffing of rural health services, and many rural places around the world struggle to retain health professionals. Despite some recognition of the complex array of factors and circumstances impacting rural workforce retention, research focuses primarily on organisational and role-based causes. Health geography and concepts associated with place currently being used in some rural research may offer much to workforce retention research, especially when applied alongside person-centred approaches.
       
  • Loneliness and depression among older European adults: The role of
           perceived neighborhood built environment
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 28 December 2019Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Joan Domènech-Abella, Jordi Mundó, Matilde Leonardi, Somnath Chatterji, Beata Tobiasz-Adamczyk, Seppo Koskinen, Jose Luis Ayuso-Mateos, Josep Maria Haro, Beatriz OlayaAbstractDepression and loneliness act in a synergistic way among older adults. We tested two indicators of the perceived neighborhood built environment (BE) as moderators of the association between these conditions in older European adults. Positive perceptions of neighborhood BE were related to lower levels of loneliness but not to major depressive disorder (MDD). Reporting low BE usability was significantly related to a higher likelihood of feeling lonely except for those suffering from MDD, whereas reporting low BE walkability was significantly related with a high likelihood of loneliness particularly among those with MDD. Therefore, improving neighborhood BE and, specifically, its walkability, might result in a reduction in the prevalence of loneliness.
       
  • Beyond landscape's visible realm: Recorded sound, nature, and wellbeing
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 27 December 2019Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Victoria Bates, Clare Hickman, Helen Manchester, Jonathan Prior, Stephanie SingerAbstractThis article draws on an AHRC/EPSRC funded project called ‘A Sense of Place: Exploring nature and wellbeing through the non-visual senses’. The project used sound and smell technologies, as well as material textures and touch, to ask: what does ‘wellbeing’ mean for people in relation to the non-visual aspects of nature, and how might technology play a role in promoting it (if at all)' This article takes recorded sound as a case study. It argues that recorded soundscapes should be understood on their own terms rather than as ‘less than’ or a simulation of natural environments. They have specific value in creating space for imagination, particularly when delivered with care and as part of the co-creation of sensory experience. Overall, the article argues that the value of emerging immersive technologies is not to simulate nature better. An ‘immersive experience’ is richest when it allows for – and reveals – the nuances and complexities of individual responses to natural environments.
       
  • How do perceived changes in inequality affect health'
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 26 December 2019Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Alexi Gugushvili, Aaron Reeves, Ewa JaroszAbstractIndividuals do not possess an entirely accurate assessment of the level of income differences in their society and so changes in quantitative measures of income inequality may not always align with changes in the perceptions of income inequality. This disconnect is partly driven by how people form their opinions about the level of inequality. In this study we explore whether there is an association between perceptions of inequality and health, and if so, how it differs depending on the specific channel through which people formed their opinions about changes in income inequality. Drawing on data from 31 European and Eurasian countries, we find that both men and women are more likely to report bad health when their perceptions of increasing inequality are formed through experiences of inequality in their communities than through media and other channels.
       
  • “I'm a foreigner there”: Landscape, wellbeing and the
           geographies of home
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 25 December 2019Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Naomi Wood, Daryl MartinAbstractThe experience of migration brings particular challenges for wellbeing, especially as an individual's sense of disconnection from previous homes can persist over many years. This paper reports on how visitors to a Chinese community centre in NW England reflected upon their experiences of being uprooted from their homelands, even in cases where they had lived for more than half of their lives in the UK. Memories of their previous homelands were persistently called upon in understanding their sense of belonging and cultural identities in the present. We use their accounts in dialogue with recent theories of landscape, especially those that argue for an understanding of place as embodied, ambivalent and in a continual process of making and re-making, in order to trace memories of home in contemporary cultures of wellbeing.
       
  • Locating oneself in the past to influence the present: Impacts of
           Neolithic landscapes on mental health well-being
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 20 December 2019Source: Health & PlaceAuthor(s): Vanessa Heaslip, Mariam Vahdaninia, Martin Hind, Tim Darvill, Yvette Staelens, Daniel O'Donoghue, Laura Drysdale, Sara Lunt, Chris Hogg, Martin Allfrey, Briony Clifton, Toby SutcliffeAbstractThere are well-established links between mental health and the environment. Mental illness is a global issue, and international policies increasingly focus on promoting mental health well-being through community-based approaches, including non-clinical initiatives such as therapeutic landscapes and the use of heritage assets. However, the empirical evidence-base for the impact of such initiatives is limited. This innovative study, known as Human Henge, used a mixed-methods approach to investigate the impact of immersive experiences of prehistoric landscapes on the well-being of participants with mental health issues. Uniquely, the study followed participants for a year after their participation in the project to explore the long-term impact of their experiences on their mental well-being. Findings highlight that, overall, participants experienced improved mental health well-being from baseline to mid- and end-of programme (p = 0.01 & 0.003), as well as one-year post-programme (p = 0.03). Qualitative data indicated the reconnection of participants with local communities, and with other people, in ways that improved their mental health well-being. These data highlight the effectiveness of using heritage as a means of improving the well-being of people with mental health issues.
