  • Mental Health Treatment Histories, Recovery, and Well-being

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Peggy A. Thoits
      First page: 1
      Abstract: Society and Mental Health, Ahead of Print.
      Epidemiological and sociological research on recovery from mental disorder is based on three rarely tested medical model assumptions: (1) recovery without treatment is the result of less severe illness, (2) treatment predicts recovery, and (3) recovery and well–being do not depend on individuals’ treatment histories. I challenge these assumptions using National Comorbidity Survey-Replication data for individuals with any disorder occurring prior to the current year (N = 2,305). Results indicated that (1) untreated remissions were fully explained by less serious prior illness, (2) treated individuals were less likely to recover due to more serious illness, and (3) people who had past–only treatment were more likely to recover than the never–treated, while those in recurring and recently initiated care were less likely to recover. Treatment histories predicted greater well–being only if recovery had been attained. Histories of care help to explain recovery rates and suggest new directions for treatment–seeking theory and research.

  • The Uneven Stress of Social Change: Disruptions, Disparities, and Mental
           Health

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Phyllis Moen

      Abstract: Society and Mental Health, Ahead of Print.
      As the COVID-19 pandemic underscores, disparities in stress exposure, vulnerability, and protective resources are often magnified in times of rapid change. I argue that Leonard Pearlin’s integration of life course and stress process frameworks constitutes a useful model for advancing a research agenda on the stressors and corollary mental health impacts of the social disruptions and dislocations defining life in the early twenty-first century. Social changes interrupt life paths and produce potentially stressful circumstances at particular time points in biographies already defined, shaped, and constrained at the intersections of race, class, nativity, age, and gender. Critical for both science and policy development is a mental health research agenda on the nature and consequences of the uneven stresses of social changes as they play out at different life course stages in disparate ways depending on people’s intersecting social locations.

  • Race, Socioeconomic Status, and Mothers’ Parental Stress

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Xu Yan

      Abstract: Society and Mental Health, Ahead of Print.
      Studies on parenting and mental health have documented both racial differences in mothers’ parental stress levels and mixed evidence on the impacts of mothers’ socioeconomic status (SES) on their parental stress. Less is known about how the association between mothers’ SES and parental stress varies by race, or to what extent this variation contributes to racial differences in mothers’ levels of parental stress. This study addresses these questions using data from the second wave of Early Childhood Longitudinal Study: 2010–2011 Kindergarten Class (N = 8,548). The ordinary least squares (OLS) regression and Blinder-Oaxaca decomposition results show that compared with white and Asian mothers, low income and education have more detrimental impacts on black and Hispanic mothers’ feelings of parental stress. This racially diverse association between mothers’ SES and parental stress is an important reason why Asian mothers face higher parental stress than black and Hispanic mothers.

  • COVID-19 Onset, Parental Status, and Psychological Distress among
           Full-time Employed Heterosexual Adults in Dual-earning Relationships: The
           Explanatory Role of Work-family Conflict and Guilt

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Society and Mental Health, Ahead of Print.
      We propose that the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions to daily life that followed had greater negative impact on the mental health, as measured by psychological distress, of employed parents than nonparents, because of an associated increase in both directions of work-family conflict and work-family guilt among this group of the population. To test this argument, we examined pooled data from two cross-sectional online surveys administered to heterosexual adults in dual-earning relationships living in the United States. The first data set was collected before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic (N = 616), and the second data set was collected during the early months of the pandemic (N = 454). Results of multivariate analyses show that distress increased between the two surveys, but only among parents, as compared with nonparents, irrespective of gender of the respondent, or age of the youngest child. This association is due to a change in work-family conflict and guilt between the two surveys: among parents, the COVID-19 onset was associated with higher family-to-work conflict, work-to-family guilt, and family-to-work guilt; among nonparents the pandemic was associated with lower work-to-family conflict and work-to-family guilt. Our results suggest that the COVID-19 onset had contrasting effects on the lives of employed parents and nonparents.

  • Health System Access for Precariously Housed Youth: A Participatory Youth
           Research Project

      Authors: Naomi Nichols, Jayne Malenfant

      Abstract: Society and Mental Health, Ahead of Print.
      This article builds from young people’s experiences navigating health system organizations to identify concrete institutional and policy processes that pose problems for youth experiencing or at risk of homelessness, as well as those that show promise in terms of health promotion. Our participatory youth research team explored homeless youth’s health-seeking practices, the specific barriers they face, and relations between their health-seeking efforts and their homelessness. Youth and adult co-researchers interviewed 38 individual youth (aged 16–29) who completed 64 qualitative institutional history interviews. Their accounts illuminate a systemic lack of capacity to address the mental health needs of homeless youth. Unable to secure access to timely, sufficient, and suitable programs and services, youth navigate patchwork of crisis and emergency supports that undermine their autonomy, their health, and their housing stability. Finally, youth without stable housing—particularly those who are Trans* and non-binary youth and/or who use drugs—report discrimination in health care settings. Our results suggest that access to timely, appropriate, de-stigmatizing, and consistent (mental) health services is one way to prevent youth homelessness.

  • From the “Magna Carta” to “Dying in the Streets”: Media Framings
           of Mental Health Law in California

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Alex V. Barnard
      First page: 155
      Abstract: Society and Mental Health, Ahead of Print.
      This article analyzes 575 newspaper articles across 53 years of reporting on California’s landmark 1967 Lanterman-Petris-Short (LPS) Act to examine framings of the challenges people with severe mental illness pose to the social order and shifting responses to them. The LPS Act restricted involuntary hospitalization which in the 1960s made it a “Magna Carta” that heralded a “mental health revolution” of voluntary, community-based care. Subsequently, coverage passed between four other framings that linked together different attributions of problems—like homelessness or suicide—with perceived flaws of the Act—such as encouraging the closure of hospitals or imposing barriers to forced treatment. Although previous research has focused on how the media amplifies fears of violence, this article shows how this framing is giving way to one focused on mentally ill people “dying in the streets” and the need for re-institutionalization to save them. By comparing media representations with other documentation from each period, this article demonstrates how these frames have continuously misattributed the consequences of complex policy and social changes to the granting of civil rights by the LPS Act.

  • Treatment Network Typologies and the Working Alliance of Clients with
           Serious Mental Illness

      Abstract: Society and Mental Health, Ahead of Print.
      The climate and culture of treatment for clients with serious mental illness (SMI) are complex. In this study, we aim to cultivate a deeper understanding of the treatment environment using a network typological approach to measure the local treatment context and assess its implications on the perceived quality of clients’ relationships with their care providers. We use in-depth egocentric network data from clients with SMI in community mental health centers and state psychiatric hospitals from the Indiana Mental Health Services and HIV Risk Study (N = 417). Clustering analysis identifies five unique and distinct network types: supportive, sparse, diverse, clinical, and treatment-focused. Weighted least squares regressions reveal clients in networks with high amounts of support predict a more trusting working alliance, whereas care-oriented networks predict a less trusting alliance. Our findings underscore the need to consider the local network context in studies of the quality of care provided to people with SMI.

  • The Disjuncture between Medication Adherence and Recovery-centered
           Principles in Early Psychosis Intervention: An Institutional Ethnography

      Authors: Elaine Stasiulis, Barbara E. Gibson, Fiona Webster, Katherine M. Boydell

      Abstract: Society and Mental Health, Ahead of Print.
      To examine how recovery principles are enacted in an early psychosis intervention (EPI) clinic, we used an institutional ethnographic approach focused on how the ideology of medication adherence organizes young people’s experiences of EPI services. Methods included ethnographic observation, in-depth interviews with 27 participants (18 clinic staff, four young people, and five family members), and textual analysis of clinic documents (e.g., case files, administrative forms, policy reports). The disjuncture between service providers’ intent to provide recovery-principled care and the actual experiences of young people is actualized in institutionalized practices of informal coercion around medication adherence, which we identify as “enticing,”“negotiating,” and “taking responsibility.” We link these practices to institutional accountability, risk, and efficiencies, and discuss the need for a shift in medication management approaches in EPI settings.

  • Mental Health Stigma and Social Contact Revisited: The Role of Network
           Closeness and Negativity

      Authors: Elizabeth Felix, Freda Lynn

      Abstract: Society and Mental Health, Ahead of Print.
      Researchers and policymakers are increasingly interested in the extent to which mental health stigma can be mitigated through social contact with people who disclose mental health issues. Empirical research on contact and stigma, however, largely focuses on the presence of contact without fully examining the nature of relationships. Interpersonal ties, for example, can be enduring and supportive, enduring and stressful, or weak yet cooperative. Using a novel egocentric network survey, this study contributes by measuring contact with respect to both the presence of alters with perceived mental health issues and the nature of those connections. Results show that, compared to respondents without any contact, naming more mental health contacts is associated with a reduction in stigma only when those relations are characterized by closeness and a lack of negativity. Among individuals with contact, a higher proportion of relationships perceived as negative or “difficult”exacerbates stigma. Implications of these findings for stigma reduction are discussed.

  • Aspiring to Do All Things Through Him Who Strengthens' Quixotic Hope,
           Religiosity, and Mental Health in Emerging Adulthood

      Abstract: Society and Mental Health, Ahead of Print.
      Beliefs about the probability of educational success tend to be very optimistic in the United States. However, scholars are beginning to uncover mental health consequences associated with quixotic hope—the unrealistic outstripping of expectation by aspiration. Using longitudinal data from Waves 1 and 3 of the National Study of Youth and Religion, this study asks, (1) does religiosity promote or diminish the likelihood of quixotic hope' and (2) does religious attendance and closeness to God mitigate long-term mental health consequences of quixotic hope' Results show that weekly religious attendance had a modest negative relationship with the likelihood of experiencing quixotic hope, while increasing religious attendance over time attenuated the negative mental health consequences of quixotic hope on increases in depression. Closeness to God neither predicted quixotic hope nor played a moderating role for depression. As educational expectations rise, regular religious practice may help protect the emotional well-being of youth.
