Authors:
BROWN Wendy, KANDIRIKIRIRA Niki
Publisher:
Scottish Recovery Network
Publication year:
2007
Pagination:
168p.
Place of publication:
Glasgow

This report is the result of what the authors describe as an innovative approach to research. By using a narrative method it states that people in recovery from long-term mental health problems are experts by experience and it reminds us that people can and do recover. The purpose of collecting recovery narratives across Scotland was to learn from each individual’s experience and identify common factors, share stories to inspire hope and offer tools and techniques for recovery among service users, carers, friends and families, service providers and the wider community, establish a Scottish evidence base of factors that help or hinder an individual’s recovery from long-term mental health problems, use the evidence to contribute to the development of policy and practice across all sectors, promoting a better understanding of what supports recovery and wellbeing, and guide and inform the work of the Scottish Recovery Network. Across the stories consistent internal and external elements could be found.

Transforming mental health care for older veterans in the Veterans Health Administration

Authors:
KARLIN Bradley E., ZEISS Antonette M.
Journal article citation:
Generations, 34(2), Summer 2010, pp.74-83. Published online.
Publisher:
American Society on Aging

Older adults often lack familiarity with mental health symptoms and services and may hold negative beliefs about mental health care that can prevent them from seeking treatment. The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) operates the largest and one of the most elaborate mental health care systems in the nation and perhaps the world. The recent history of the system is described. One successful new model for providing mental health care to older veterans that has been nationally implemented in the VHA is the integration of a full-time mental health provider on each of the more than 130 VA home-based primary care (HBPC) teams. Another major psychogeriatrics initiative involves the integration of a full-time mental health provider in VA community living centers (CLC), formerly designated as nursing home care units. It is critical that increasing national attention be devoted to the mental health needs of older Americans and that policies and processes be developed to extend the reach and potential impact of mental health care for older adults.

Improving mental health is a national priority in Scotland. NHS Health Scotland was commissioned by the Scottish Government to establish a core set of sustainable mental health indicators to enable national monitoring. This report provides the first ever systematic assessment of the adult population’s overall mental health. The report has three objectives: to provide a description of the state of mental health and the associated contextual factors that influence it at a single point in time, using the most recent available data, to analyse time trends for each indicator over the last decade, where possible, and to identify differences within the adult population by selected dimensions of equality, where possible.
