  • Organizational Leaders Perceptions of Barriers to Accessing Behavioral
           Health Services in a Low-Resource Community

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Little is known about how to effectively implement behavioral health programs in low-resource communities. Leaders from 20 community-serving behavioral health organizations in Flint, MI, were asked about their organizations and the barriers that they, and the populations they serve, face in providing and accessing behavioral health services. Barriers are reported using a mixed-methods analysis, reporting the number and percentage of organizations that experienced the barrier along with example quotations from the organization leaders. The most frequently reported barrier to providing services was finding adequate funding (50%) while the most frequently reported barrier for accessing services was finding adequate and reliable transportation (30%). Comparisons of these findings with barriers reported by providers in different settings and those seeking services are discussed. These comparisons may provide an important next step in identifying areas where providers perceptions and the needs of the population are misaligned and for systemic improvements more broadly.

  • Transitioning to Telehealth for COVID-19 and Beyond: Perspectives of
           Community Mental Health Clinicians

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In response to COVID-19, mental health clinics transitioned to telehealth to maintain psychotherapy delivery. Community mental health (CMH) settings, which are often under-resourced, likely experienced many barriers. This study examined CMH clinicians’ experiences transitioning to telehealth. Data came from a state-funded initiative training CMH clinicians in cognitive behavioral therapy. Participants (N = 197) completed pre-training and post-consultation surveys which included questions about their experiences with telehealth. Most clinicians found telehealth beneficial and effective. Clinicians strongly endorsed wanting telehealth as an option even after in-person services resume. CMH clinicians rated “engaging younger children” as the most significant barrier to telehealth. Despite some telehealth barriers, clinicians generally viewed telehealth favorably and prefer having it as a long-term option. Future work should continue to understand when telehealth may be advantageous and for whom in order to improve the accessibility and quality of behavioral health services.

  • Estimating a Model for Mental Healthcare Utilization Using Subjective
           Unmet Need and Psychological Distress Measures

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The objective of this study is to assess the predictive value of self-reported need and psychological distress in mental healthcare service use across racial and ethnic groups in California. Using 2014–2018 data for adults aged 18–64 in the California Health Interview Survey, both logistic and Poisson regression models are used to estimate mental healthcare utilization. Patient-reported outcome measures, such as psychological distress, are commonly used to evaluate healthcare utilization patterns. The Kessler-6 screener for psychological distress is frequently used as a tool for determining whether someone’s level of distress necessitates evaluation by a mental healthcare professional. Serious psychological distress has been widely studied as a predictor of higher healthcare expenditures and use; however, moderate distress and self-reported need has been less examined in the literature. Seventy-two percent of individuals with moderate psychological distress felt like they needed to see a professional for their mental or emotional needs compared to 4% of individuals with serious psychological distress. Individuals with moderate psychological distress had 34% of all healthcare visits for mental or emotional needs during the study period, compared to 17% for those with serious psychological distress. Subjective unmet need for mental healthcare was reported by 77% of those who utilized mental healthcare during the study period. Studying subjective unmet need, in addition to moderate and serious distress, provides additional understanding of the need for mental healthcare and mental healthcare utilization.

  • Potential Role of Conversational Agents in Encouraging PrEP Uptake

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Approximately 1.2 million people are living with HIV, with many of them unaware of their infection. Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is available to minimize transmission among those at high risk for infection, including men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, and female sex workers. Despite its availability, there is low usage of PrEP. To address this problem, various digital tools have been examined in HIV research. Among those, conversational agents are still underused and their capacity warrants examination to reach at-risk populations. In this paper, we discuss the potential of conversational agents in increasing uptake of PrEP by addressing barriers experienced among those at high risk for infection.

  • Predictors of Mental Health Help-Seeking During COVID-19: Social Support,
           Emotion Regulation, and Mental Health Symptoms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Little is known about factors that contribute to mental health help-seeking during disasters beyond attitudes toward counseling. The COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) global pandemic dramatically impacted individuals, families, and communities worldwide. The pandemic led to significant disruptions to family routines, and evidence suggests an increase in instances of mental health symptoms, like depression and anxiety, and poor utilization of mental health services. To better understand psychological factors associated with help-seeking during the COVID-19 pandemic, researchers surveyed respondents (n = 1,533 at time 1) about their mental health and help-seeking using Amazon’s MTurk platform. The results indicated that individuals with higher levels of anxiety rate their likelihood of help-seeking as higher and those who do seek psychological help report higher levels of depression. Further, those who began new treatment for behavioral health difficulties during the COVID-19 pandemic reported lower social support and less clarity about how they felt (specifically, emotional clarity when upset). Implications for clinical researchers and public health are discussed.

  • Assessing the Use of Data Systems to Estimate Return-on-Investment of
           Behavioral Healthcare Interventions: Opportunities and Barriers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract To improve access to and quality of affordable behavioral healthcare, there is a need for more research to identify which interventions can generate long-term, societal return-on-investment (ROI). Barriers to ROI studies in the behavioral health sector were explored by conducting semi-structured interviews with individuals from key stakeholder groups at state and national behavioral health-related organizations. Limited operating budgets, state-based payer systems, the lack of financial support, privacy laws, and other unique experiences of behavioral health providers and patients were identified as important factors that affect the collection and utilization of data. To comprehensively assess ROI of interventions, it is necessary to improve standardization and data infrastructure across multiple health and non-health systems and clarify or address legal, regulatory, and commercial conflicts.

  • A Mixed-Method Investigation of Parent Perspectives on Early Childhood
           Behavioral Services in Primary Care

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Primary care is a key setting for the delivery of parent-focused behavioral interventions. Various methods of intervention show promising efficacy but fail to engage adequate parental participation. This study used a sequential-explanatory mixed-method design to understand factors underlying parents’ attitudes toward the content, sources, and delivery methods of behavioral guidance in primary care. Fifteen parents who previously participated in a larger survey study participated in interviews about their experiences and attitudes toward integrated primary care. Qualitative data were analyzed and sorted by quantitative data of interest to identify demographic, child, and parental factors that shape attitudes toward integrated care. Parents emphasized a need for tailored behavioral guidance, and multiple interconnected factors (e.g., trust of providers, perceived convenience of delivery modalities, stigma associated with behavioral health services) drove parents’ attitudes toward behavioral primary care. These attitudes varied based on socioeconomic status, child behavior symptoms, and reported use of corporal punishment.

  • Barriers and Facilitators to Behavior Change for Individuals with Severe
           Mental Illness who Received the Transdiagnostic Intervention for Sleep and
           Circadian Dysfunction in a Community Mental Health Setting

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The Transdiagnostic Intervention for Sleep and Circadian Dysfunction (TranS-C) was implemented in a community mental health center (CMHC) setting. The goal of TranS-C is to improve sleep and circadian dysfunction among people with severe mental illness. The present study uses the Theoretical Domains Framework (TDF) to uncover barriers and facilitators to changing behaviors learned in TranS-C. Adults with severe mental illness who completed TranS-C (n = 14) were given a semi-structured interview based on the TDF. Interview transcripts were independently coded using inductive and deductive coding. The most commonly coded TDF domains were Behavior Regulation, Beliefs about Consequences, Knowledge and Beliefs about Capabilities. Action planning was the most discussed facilitator and compromising sleep health in favor of time spent with loved ones was the most discussed barrier. These findings suggest that TranS-C has promising strengths and raise important barriers that can be addressed in TranS-C to improve its fit within CMHCs.

  • Primary Care Implementation of a Mandatory Prescription Drug Monitoring
           Program in New York City

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The ways in which prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) have been integrated into clinical practice remain understudied, and research into PDMP implementation in states where PDMP use by providers is mandated remains scant. This qualitative study describes how use of a state-mandated PDMP influenced clinical practice and opioid analgesic prescribing. We conducted face-to-face, in-depth interviews with 53 New York State-licensed primary care physicians who reported that they currently prescribed opioid analgesic medication, including those providers who reported consistent use of the PDMP (n = 38) in this sample. We used a thematic analytic approach to identify patterns of PDMP implementation into practice following enactment of the New York State legislative usage mandate. Among physicians who consistently used the PDMP, we found two distinct groups: (1) physicians who reported no change in their clinical practice and (2) physicians who acknowledged changes to both clinical practice and administrative management. In the latter group, most physicians felt the PDMP had benefited their patient relationships by fostering dialogue around patient substance use; however, some used the PDMP to dismiss patients from care. Findings suggest that increased education for providers relating to judicious prescribing, opioid use disorder, and best practice for PDMP utilization are needed.

           Children in Foster Care

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The objective of this study was to examine the association between community adversity and psychotropic use among children in foster care in one US state. This study uses a cross-sectional design integrated foster care and Medicaid administrative data with data from Kids Count, the US Census, and the Area Health Resource File. There were 4,334 children ages 5–18 in foster care in 2014. We used K-means cluster analysis grouped state counties using indicators of school performance, juvenile justice involvement, and food insecurity. Chi-square tests assessed significance between psychotropic medication and community adversity cluster. A generalized linear mixed model assessed the relationship between psychotropic use and community adversity cluster, accounting for individual-level and cluster-level factors. Children in foster care living in high adversity communities were significantly less likely to use psychotropic medication (p < .0001). Future research can investigate the specific community factor influencing judicious use of psychotropic medication and the impact on children outcomes.

           Infection Who Inject Drugs: a Site Case Report from the CTN 67 CHOICES
           Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: CHOICES was an open-label, randomized, comparative effectiveness trial of office-based extended-release naltrexone versus treatment as usual in people with untreated opioid use disorder and HIV. This study explored facilitators to recruitment in Miami, a successful recruiting site in the national trial. The mixed-methods study included quantitative surveys of randomized participants, medical record abstraction, and qualitative interviews with study staff. Miami recruited 47 (40.5%) of 116 randomized participants in the six-site national trial. In-depth interviews of study staff (n = 6) revealed that Miami had a recruitment approach consisting of street level outreach and a close relationship with the local syringe services program (SSP). Partnership with a local SSP provided access to people living with HIV who inject drugs in Miami. SSPs’ fundamental trust within the community of people who inject drugs can be leveraged in studies aiming to improve health outcomes in this underserved and high-priority population.

  • The Critical Role of Health Information Technology in the Safe Integration
           of Behavioral Health and Primary Care to Improve Patient Care

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Integrated behavioral health and primary care is a set of related approaches to enhance care delivery, safety, and quality through closer collaboration and coordination among clinicians and care organizations in these two fields. Technology (e.g., electronic health records (EHR), telehealth, clinical decision support, and standards-based interoperability) can enable integration and improve delivery of care. Reinforcing these opportunities, virtual care and telehealth have dramatically changed care availability and delivery, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. There are different levels of integration, ranging from minimal to full collaboration. The Partnership for Health IT Patient Safety and the HIMSS Electronic Health Record Association (EHRA) formed a workgroup to examine using information technology to facilitate integration. Taking a three-pronged approach focused on (1) screening for behavioral health issues, (2) clinician documentation, and (3) sharing data among clinicians, patients, and authorized parties, the workgroup developed action-oriented recommendations and strategies for safe use of health IT for stakeholders and policymakers seeking to advance efforts to integrate behavioral health with primary care.

  • Engaging the Community to Effectively Plan and Implement Community-Based
           Mental Health Programs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Community engagement is recognized as an effective means to maximizing public health program impacts despite challenges such as power imbalances that can undermine efforts. The value of engaging communities as equitable partners in the design and delivery of community-based programs has gained increasing traction over the last few decades. Most research in this area has been focused on partnerships between academia and communities, leaving a knowledge gap regarding engagement between community organizations and between community organizations and members. This paper presents a process evaluation that aimed to identify and describe factors found to impact and promote community engagement efforts within a multisite, multiyear, community-based prevention initiative. Findings highlight that strategies such as investing in trust-building efforts, engaging community influencers, and providing meaningful opportunities for community member involvement can help facilitate effective implementation. Recognizing the value and necessity of community engagement in community-based programming is an integral and continuous process.

  • Taking a Look at How Family Member Engagement Influences Service User
           Engagement in New Journeys: a Coordinated Specialty Care Program

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Family members are integral to the care and support of individuals experiencing early psychosis, and while studies have brought to light the impact of family engagement, there is a dearth in the literature on the ways family engagement in services affects service user engagement. The present study examined the relationship between initial family engagement and service user engagement among 349 service users enrolled in New Journeys, a network of coordinated specialty care (CSC) programs. Service users whose family members were initially engaged in treatment in the first month were more likely to remain engaged and attend appointments during the first 7 months relative to service users whose family members were not initially engaged (χ−2=88.4; p < 0.001). Overall, for a one unit increase in total number of appointments attended by family members in the first 24 months, the odds of service users’ engagement increased by 14% (OR: 1.14, CI: 1.12–1.16). Findings demonstrate the association between family engagement and the engagement of service users in CSC.

The majority of participants stated they would be comfortable screening for suicide with the ASQ tool (78.9%; N = 15), that they would recommend the ASQ tool and the BSSA to colleagues (84.2%; N = 16), and that they were “satisfied” or “highly satisfied” with the ASQ and BSSA (88.2%; N = 13). Barriers to implementation reported included a lack of knowledge regarding suicide risk screening and lack of access to behavioral health resources. Education regarding the ASQ, the BSSA, and suicide risk screening are highlighted as crucial elements for future implementation.

  • Clients’ Perspectives Regarding Peer Support Providers’ Roles and
           Support for Client Access to and Use of Publicly Funded Mental Health

      Abstract: Abstract Peer providers are increasingly used by mental health programs to engage transition age youth (TAY, age 16-24) living with serious mental illness. This study elicited TAY clients’ perspectives on peer providers’ roles, responsibilities, and contribution to TAYs’ use of mental health services. In 2019, six focus groups were conducted with TAY clients (n=24) receiving publicly funded mental health services in Southern California. Results from this analysis included four themes that illustrated the role of peers as perceived by TAY clients, including: 1) building client–peer provider relationships, 2) engaging with mental health services, 3) role-modelling recovery and supporting skill acquisition to instill hope and empowerment, and 4) peer roles and experiences specific to racial/ethnic concordance. These findings provide needed perspectives on the evolving role of peer providers in mental health services programming for TAY clients.

  • Development and Measurement of the Treatment Perceptions Survey (TPS) for
           Clients with Substance Use Disorders

      Abstract: Abstract Statistical reliability of the Treatment Perceptions Survey (TPS) questionnaire was examined using data from 19 California counties. The 14-item TPS was designed for clients receiving substance use disorder services at publicly funded community-based programs. The TPS is being used for evaluation of the State’s 1115 Medicaid Waiver, external quality review of county-based systems of care, and quality improvement efforts. The survey addresses four domains of access to care, quality of care, care coordination, and general satisfaction that each include multiple items, plus a single item focused on self-reported outcome. Reliability test results of the four domains as composite measures were statistically significant. General satisfaction ratings were the best predictor of self-reported outcome in a path analysis model, followed by ratings of care coordination and quality of care. Separate analyses of TPS data from clients receiving specialty mental health services suggest the questionnaire can also be used reliably in mental health settings.

  • Optimizing Efforts to Promote Mental Health on College and University
           Campuses: Recommendations to Facilitate Usage of Services, Resources, and
           Supports

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Mental health has long been a challenge on college and university campuses. Though it has historically taken a back seat to physical health, college administrators recently identified mental health as a key area for additional support. With the COVID-19 pandemic bringing mental health into the conversation across the country, there is no more critical and opportune time for colleges and universities to prioritize mental health. Many public and private universities alike have begun to do this, but how can they ensure that the services and resources they are providing and promoting get used and that students, faculty, and staff reap the benefits of these efforts' This commentary describes a set of universal steps the authors recommend based on their experience working with colleges and universities across New York State to increase uptake and usage of services.

  • An Audit of Mental Health Care Plans in Community Mental Health Services
           for Older Persons in Rural Communities in a State in Australia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Mental health care planning is an important part of holistic, patient-centred care provision. Rural older adults represent a vulnerable population with unique and complex care needs requiring robust care planning approaches. This study’s aim was to audit care plan documentation for rural older Australians against quality standards. A retrospective review of the care plans from electronic case records was performed for all patients who were 65 years or older and managed by rural community mental health teams over a 12-month period. 72.1% of patients had a care plan available. Multiple assessment areas were sparsely documented, such as cognition (32%), self-harm risk assessments (29.8%), visual impairment (5.5%), hearing issues (5%) and Advance Care Directives (35.4%). This study highlighted the need for the development and implementation of a care plan template specific to rural older patients. Further research into care planning processes and barriers to implementation is also required for this population.
